Wonderful site and sight!!

Had a lovely peaceful stay here. Wonderful views, especially the sunset and the view of the Pendle hills changing colour with the sunset. Plenty of opportunities for walking and enjoying the countryside - River walks, walking in the woods it is all possible. Clitheroe very close for shopping. Dined in Waddington. Site well cared for, toilet and shower always clean. All in all a perfect place. Thank you.

Down on the Farm at Lambing Time

We stayed at Drake House Farm from 5th April to 7th April 2019 and we had an amazing stay. Ann and Edward, our hosts, were warm and welcoming and should you have a request, they were only too happy to help. Our request was, well a little, random - I had never helped with the birth of a lamb. Luckily, Mavis, a chocolate coloured ewe was happy to oblige and on Saturday evening her first, a little boy lamb, was born. AMAZING! Especially as Edward made sure Mavis was in the right place for us to have a full view. When lamb number two, a girl, was on the way, Ann had gone in to make Edward's tea so it was left to me, Rachael, to help him. Within a few moments, lamb number two was born. Ann and Edward have very kindly named the lambs, Andrew and Rachael, after us. As for the site, the shower and toilet area is clean and has plenty of hot water. There is a tap for drinking water to each pitch which is really useful. Very peaceful site with good access to local footpaths and villages. I can recommend a walk down the wooded valley to West Bradford, following the stream, but you may need your wellies. There are plenty of cycle routes also and for either walkers or cyclists Stocks Reservoir is worth a visit. We will definitely go back to visit, not just to see how lambs Andrew and Rachael are, but to have another fantastic weekend. Thank you Ann and Edward for our amazing weekend. Love Andrew and Rachael xx

Excellent

We stayed here for 2 nights. Lovely location, great views and very friendly reception on arrival. We were also blessed with a beautiful sunny February weekend. The toilet/shower facilities are good, but the WiFi signal was not strong enough for it to work at all which was just slightly disappointing. It is within walking distance of Waddington, where there are some lovely pubs, and there are lots of walks around the fells/Ribble Valley without having to drive anywhere. Will return and would highly recommend

Scenic, peaceful site with great views

We have visited this site now for 6 years and only just got round to leaving a review. It's the best CL by a mile that we have stayed at taking all into account. The views are just lovely of pendle hill and the sunsets. Anne is really friendly and always makes time for a chat and is on hand if you need anything. The sheep are so relaxing to watch too! There are great moorland walks on your doorstep and a few great pubs in Waddington, a 5 min drive away. It's such a pretty village. Clitheroe is only 15 mins away which is a nice little town for shopping, eating and browsing too. Try the sausage shop! Once you visit Drake House you will be back - all pitches have great views and all fully serviced with free wifi. The info room is really useful too. The toilet and showers are clean, but are fairly basic as you would expect from a rural CL. We will be back again as soon as we can to our favourite CL!

Lovely peaceful site

We stayed at Drake House Farm one week in September. We had a lovely pitch, overlooking the Pendle Hills and the field of sheep. It was perfect!! All pitches are serviced pitches with hardstanding with water, drainage and electricity. The shower / toilet block was always clean with plenty of spare loo rolls and a visitors area with leaflets of places of interest. There was lots to see and do in the area. We loved Clitheroe, a real old-fashioned town with individual shops rather than boring chain shops. There are wonderful views from the castle (free). Other great days out were the East Lancs Railway, Trough of Bowland and we even went to Blackpool to see the lights. The food at The Three Milestones Inn was very good - a bit pricey but they do a 3 course special earlier in the evening. Ann was very welcoming and friendly, great for local knowledge and enjoyed a chat without being intrusive. We had a great time - so good that it's top of our list for next year! Thanks Ann (Liz & Dave and sister Sarah)
