There are many places to visit in the surrounding area. The village of Clifton is 10 minutes away and many of our guests choose to visit for the great food and a selection of shops.
With Lytham and Freckleton around the corner you are not short of nice places to eat and shop.
Just 1 mile away you can find the lovely Hotel of Bartle Hall.
The City of Preston is the closest city to our farm and caravan park – a great place to shop, with a selection of attractions to enjoy.
Visit Samlesbury Hall or the Harris Museum, spend the day at Avenham Park or test your bowling skills at MFA Bowl.
Preston also has a cinema and lots of restaurants and pubs.
With its castle, cathedral and priory, Lancaster is a wonderful place to visit for history and culture.
Artists and musicians love Lancaster, and you might consider booking tickets to a show or comedy performance at the Grand Theatre.
You’ll also love Williamson Park with its woodland walks, its café, the Ashton Memorial and the Butterfly House.
What can we say about Blackpool? It’s one of the UK’s most popular seaside holiday resorts and home to the iconic Tower, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, the Sandcastle Waterpark and the annual Blackpool Illuminations.
You could spend days in Blackpool’s arcades and you can also visit the Winter Gardens, Blackpool Zoo and the Grand Theatre. We expect to see your caravan filled with stuffed toys by the time your holiday is over.
It takes 45 minutes to reach the border of the Lake District National Park, and 80 minutes to get to Windermere. Enjoy outdoor activities, dinner cruises, long walks or an afternoon of horse riding.
The Lake District has wonderful attractions including the Lakes Aquarium, the World of Beatrix Potter and Hill Top, the house that Beatrix Potter purchased with the proceeds from sales of The Tale of Peter Rabbit.
Manchester is home to the National Football Museum, the Museum of Science and Industry, two big football teams and an incredible number of restaurants and bars. Watch a concert or show at the Manchester Phones 4u Arena or the Palace Theatre.
A little further afield you’ll find the Trafford Centre with plenty of shops, the UK’s busiest cinema and Europe’s largest food court. You might want to spend a few days in Manchester!
