It's nice here just 1 little niggle.

Sandbeds Caravan Site
First time here on the CL. No complaints whatsoever. There is 1 caravan here looks permanent and tatty. Also we thought this was Adults only? Apart from that it's beautiful here. Well worth the £16.00 pn. We haven't met the owners so we have left our fee in the letter box in the wooden hut.

Lovely little site

Sandbeds Caravan Site
We have used this site fairly regular and it always pleases. Simple site with hook-up and water, well looked after. But the views are worth every penny, even though it rained a lot when we were there. Sites have a bit of a slope but nothing major. The entrance has more of a swing now which is better. We have a smallish van so bridge in Gressingham is no problem but take it slow. The ground at no time became muddy and the grass is kept reasonably short. Very easy booking and payments. Really handy for numerous trips out, we go to Leighton Moss RSPB site which is fairly close. Also Lancaster castle, and the 'Brief Encounter' cafe at Carnforth is worth a visit. We will be back again in future.

Peter & Mandy - A weekend in June 2023

Sandbeds Caravan Site
Visited June 2023, fabulous CL site, we accessed with a 7.5m Laika A class motorhome, the approach road is single track with passing places, take your time, no issues, most pitches are sloping so ramps needed. Very tidy site and peaceful site, all the services you need on site. Spectacular views down the Lune Valley, the River Lune Ramble walk is a few minutes walk away with easy access to the River Lune down the track from the site entrance, lots of other walking options in the area. 2023 price £16 with EHU, whats not to like 👌

Conflicting information

Sandbeds Caravan Site
We booked through CL Booking. On the CL Booking website, the site is described as adults only and £14 per night. On arrival we found a family with children on the site (who were very well behaved fortunately). We also found that the site was quoting £16 per night on its notice board and on the CAMC site. The pitches would benefit from levelling, it would be difficult to put up an awning on most of the pitches. The site has nice views across the Lune but access is down a single track road that is in poor condition in places. We met a HGV coming the other way on arrival and we are grateful that the driver was willing and able to reverse down the road to let us onto the site. Unfortunately when we were leaving we met a van driver coming the other way who was intent on squeezing past us. We prefer to book adult only sites only because our dogs can get quite excited around children and we don't want to have to keep our dogs cooped up inside our van. I am not too concerned about the extra £6 we paid for the stay, I just think that the owners should ensure that if they are going to put their CL on CL Booking, they should ensure that the information they provide is accurate and consistent with the information on the CAMC site. We did not see the owner at all during our stay. TV reception would be better described as non-existent rather than fair. Again, not a massive issue but some people may be disappointed if they were expecting to keep up with their soaps while there.

New owners need to give a little TLC

Sandbeds Caravan Site
We arrived on site on a glorious sunny day in early July. The pitches on site are a bit of a challenge and really need levelling. We have a caravan and the only pitches which were suitable for an awning were on the right hand side, which meant we were not able to take advantage of the fabulous views down the Lune valley. Plenty of taps and disposal grids for grey water. We eventually saw the owner when I walked up to the farm to make payment, a visit to us whilst we were on site would have been nicer. The road to the site is essentially only used by farm traffic so apart from tractors and the odd lorry, it was very quiet. The instructions in the 2021/22 book were misleading (never found the Lune Valley Smokehouse and the new owner of the site didn't know where it was either!), but hopefully the new young owners will correct this.
