Primrose Cottage Camping: Blackbrook

General

  • Quiet adults-only campsite in rural Lancashire
  • A mile from Chorley town centre; Go Ape Rivington 10 minutes' drive
  • Dog-friendly pitches beneath Healy Nab; pub 10 minutes' walk away

Primrose Cottage Camping – a sweet-smelling name indeed, with spectacular countryside views to match. Set amid grassy fields, woodlands and streams in the lovely Lancashire countryside, this adults-only site is an excellent spot for back to basics camping in a low-key setting.

Located beneath Healy Nab and next to Blackbrook stream, the site is hidden away in the local countryside. Flat walks along both footpaths and canals are available a few hundred yards from the site gates, making it a cinch to get out there and explore Lancashire's best scenic spots and wildlife havens…

Strolling through the local landscape is, of course, an activity you can get up to with your dog if you've brought one along – Primrose Cottage Camping has pet-friendly rules, with polite four-legged friends welcome here all year round. In fact, all guests at this quiet site are asked to be polite and keep any music at a low level for the benefit of everyone around.

Chorley town centre is a mile away, although with the rural views here you wouldn't know it. The closest pub is 10 minutes' walk away, and are plenty more pubs, shops and cafés in town within easy reach either on foot (20 minutes' walk) or by car (five minutes' drive). There's also good access to the speedy M61 for long-distance drives to the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District, both of which can be reached within an hour.

Please note

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the park are unlit.

    Basic, but a pleasure. The maze of footpaths was brilliant and received top marks from the dog. Despite a real get away from it all feel, it was only a few minutes walk to a canal side pub with good food.

    We were there for one night after I had been for a hospital appointment. Would certainly go again.

    Lovely little site with gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside !

    Laury (owner )was lovely and helpful and we liked the fact we got a couple of texts prior to our stay giving us lots of information about checking in , location , best routes and site info ! As newbies to camping it made us feel very welcome and helped us relax and enjoy our stay even more !
    There are toilets which are kept nice and clean .
    Also a complimentary fire pit was a nice touch ( wood bundle £10) which was great and means u don’t have to take your own !
    Pub and canal walk just a short walk away !

    Really enjoyed our stay here and will recommend to our friends .

Thank you for your review April, we do work hard to keep the toilets spotlessly clean but obviously on a busy weekend they are used continually. We’re delighted you enjoyed your time here otherwise, hope to see you again sometime 😊
