August bank holiday stay

Drake House Farm
Just spent four nights over the bank holiday at this beautiful site, spacious pitch with on tap water and direct water waste, the facilities in the on site shower and toilet were spotless and loads of local information provided by the owner Ann. The site is peaceful and beautifully kept, Waddington nearby has a a selection of friendly pubs with great food. Thank you for a great stay, will not hesitate to return. Roger and Bernadette.

Far from the madding crowd.

Drake House Farm
Spent a glorious week at this lovely quiet adult only CL situated on the edge of the Forest of Bowland although it rained for most of our stay. We were on pitch 1 which in my opinion was the best, plenty of room for car, caravan and porch awning and well drained throughout in spite of torrential rain for a few days. The fully serviced pitches were well spaced out and the whole site was in pristine condition with beautifully mown grass and all had fantastic views towards Pendle Hill. The large barn behind the site had well stocked information including pub walk leaflets and also DVDs and books - this also housed the toilet and shower. Ann was extremely friendly and obviously took pride in her beautiful site visiting every day to ensure all was well. We encountered deer daily on the drive leading to the farm which was a delight and there were many walks from site, our favourite being Bradford Fell which was accessed from the top of the lane where you could walk for miles without meeting anyone. During our stay, we also explored Gisburn Forest where there are many walks and cycle trails, the Trough of Bowland and even visited Morecambe to see if Eric could bring us sunshine! Clitheroe was a stones throw away and a visit to the Sausage shop is a must. This is an area we have never visited before and look forward to returning again in the near future.

Excellent peaceful site

Drake House Farm
Just returned from 4 nights at this lovely CL. We received a very warm welcome from the owner Ann who also walked round the site most days, rain permitting, to check everyone was ok. Pitch 4 had a good sized hard standing area and large area of well cut grass for sitting on. Beautiful views from all pitches towards Pendle Hill. Despite heavy rain we had no problem with any water logging. Good walks direct from the site up to the local fell. It would be a nice walk to the nearest pub in West Bradford but uphill all the way back. Flat walks along the nearby river Ribble and easy access into Clitheroe, a pretty market town and worth visiting. Very handy having water and drainage on the pitch and free wifi an added bonus. We really enjoyed our stay especially noting how peaceful it was. A well run, friendly place to stay and as it’s not too far from home we hope to return.

Peaceful well maintained site.

Drake House Farm
We have just returned from a 3 night stay at this lovely peaceful site. We were on pitch 3, which previous comments have been made of a drainage issue when it rains which Ann did mention, but it rained nearly all the time we were there and we had no problems. Very convenient having water and waste drain on the pitch, we don’t use a hose for waste water but it was easier enough to use a bucket to empty into drain near pitch tap. Waddington village is a pleasant walk away (if you don’t do it in a thunderstorm) with very nice pubs. Well Maintained - Spacious pitches - Friendly Owner - Toilet and shower basic but very clean, what more do you want for a CL away from the crowds and children.

little gem

Drake House Farm
What a lovely site. 5 beautiful pitches with an amazing view. All pitches have access to electric and water and are spaced put with lots of grass in between each pitch and a cental grassed area too. We stopped here for a weekend but wish it had been longer. The accessible walks from the site are great and even just the walk that runs at the side of the site is amazing and great if you have a dog which we have. Anne was incredibly welcoming and lively to chat too onnrach occasion we spoke....even when the dog decided to venture into her home as we returned from a walk. As per some other reviews there is only 1 token and shower for the 5 pitches and yes its in the back of what was a barn but its kept clean and tidy and Anne ensures there are clean towels and hand soap and sanitiser should you need it. There is also lots of information and a white board for exchanging information with Anne should she not be around. We absolutely loved our stay here and will be planning a trip back. X
