Pleasant site

We only stayed for one night on our way back from Scotland , so didn't visit the locality but sure there would have been lots to do and see.The site wasn't difficult to access with a short narrow section just prior to the site and convenient for the M6. Plenty of space and easy access to shower & toilet facility and dog walking off site . Like the previous reviewer we had an issue and needed to call in Green Flag , who were great , but needed to take our van back on a transporter. The site owners were very understanding and had no bother on our delayed departure. Our only slight issue was the local Bangor Racing on the Sunday which did increase volume of traffic on the road and could be heard. However it was due to finish at 6pm so in general had we been staying longer we would have been offsite for this time or perhaps have popped down to watch! Would be happy to visit again

Eventful holiday

We drove with our caravan up to the Lakes on the M6 on Sunday 16th June, only to get a blow out on a caravan tyre just before the slip road for Junction 18 (very convenient), Thankfully, Green Flag got us on our way within the hour, only to have a second blow out on the remaining caravan tyre less than a couple of miles down the M6. The recovery team were amazing (same man, Paul and his colleague) and we followed them all the way to Carnforth to the farm site. We had contacted Paul to see if this was ok and arrived at 9.30pm instead of the expected 5pm. Caravan was deposited on the pitch, and within 5 minutes fellow campers, Margaret and Jim, came over to ask if we took milk and sugar and proceeded to help us get set up. We have been caravanning for over 30 years and never had problems like this happen, so to then receive all of this kindness from complete strangers was overwhelming, and it is lovely to know there are some really good people out there. Paul recommended where to go to get tyres fixed and the rest of our stay was fabulous. This site is a little gem and Paul and Helen could not have been more welcoming and understanding. Can't wait for a return visit.

Not what we expected.

When we first arrived we really liked this site. Spacious and quiet with all the necessary facilities. It is in lovely countryside and it is an easy walk into Carnforth or down to the shore of Morecambe bay. However, when we returned on Friday evening after enjoying a visit to Carnforth and a train ride to Ulverston, we found four large tents and about 15-20 people camped in the orchard. This resulted in the facilities being seriously overstretched and there was definitely no peace and quiet as children from the group ran around the whole site until after 10pm. It completely spoiled our stay and would put me off returning even though we enjoyed exploring the area and would like to see more of the area. It states exclusive use of shower and toilet but this is clearly wrong. The problem of additional vans or tents on CLs seems to be on the increase. We have been to a number of sites that squeeze in more than five vans or have a separate part that takes additional vans. This is fine as long as it is made clear on booking. We choose CLs for the peace and quiet but sadly we are becoming more and more disappointed.

Comment from Community Manager

Many thanks for leaving a review and we are sorry to read that you had an issue during your stay. The CL Owner has been in touch as they are really concerned this affected the enjoyment of your stay. It was a large family gathering, a one off event with the tents being completely separate to the CL Site itself. They had tried to speak to all the people staying on the CL to let them know about the party but in hindsight things were bigger and louder than expected and they are sincerely sorry to the guests on the CL at the time. Our CL Advisor was in touch with them the same day and the CL Owners have assured us this will not happen again and they are sincerely sorry.

Captivating Carnforth

A really handy site, good access from the M6 and an easy stroll to Carnforth Railway Station. Toilet and shower available for guests. Plenty of space between pitches.

Great site, we'll be back

Living just over 30 minutes away we've passed this site many times & have often commented how it looked just like the sort of small site we'd like to stay on if we owned a caravan! We finally bought a caravan earlier this year and tried to book on here for our first outing over Easter weekend but unfortunately the site was already fully booked. We finally got to stay 2 nights last weekend and we'll definitely be back. The site is well looked after & the owner very friendly. Having 3 dogs with us we do a lot of walking so we walked the cycle path into Carnforth (approx 1.5 miles) where there are pubs, cafes & shops. We also walked the canal towpath to Lancaster & back and there are plenty of other walks close by.
