A WONDERFUL FIND

Drake House Farm
A small five pitch site in a stunning location. Booking was straightforward as Ann promptly returns emails, directions to site are clear and the welcome here is very warm. Nice to have water and drain on each site with convenient hook up. Lots of information in the barn which also houses the toilet and shower (basic but spotlessly clean). Despite some interesting weather (the “storm” and the snow, I had a fabulous few days here….walks from the doorstep to adjacent fells, Pendleton Hill and Ogden reservoirs within a few miles, Forest of Bowland a short drive away with fabulous mountain bike trails, the magic of the Yorkshire Dales and National Park with walking, majestic waterfalls, craggy cliffs and plenty of pubs! Most definitely on my list to return to this site…highly recommended but don’t tell too many other people!

A Great View

Drake House Farm
The booking process is made very simple by the proprietor who emails back straight away on contact. The directions on the site website make access to the site straightforward from the nearby A59. Although the bridge over the river is narrow it is easily negotiated with a little care. The site has five generously spaced, level pitches with a great view over the valley to Pendle Hill. We were blessed with glorious sunrises each morning and starlit night skies. Sheep graze alongside the site and owls hoot at dusk but otherwise the site offers quiet solitude. Altogether a pretty idyllic setting. Each pitch has its own water supply and there is a basic but spotless shower and toilet a few yards away. A real bonus was the free WiFi soon to be upgraded to fibre if nearby publicity is to be believed. The Ribble Valley is very beautiful and you can walk from the site in either direction on circular walks that take in nearby villages and the excellent pubs in Sawley, West Bradford and Waddington. We ate at the Spreadeagle in Sawley (£11 for fish and chips and a gorgeous pint) and had an excellent Sunday meal at the Millstones in West Bradford itself. (£20 for two courses.) Further afield, Pendle Hill is within easy reach as are Clitheroe (castle/ shops) and Skipton and this is a cyclist's heaven with routes along the valley or into the Forest of Bowland and the Dales. We stayed three nights and we will be returning in spring.

Disappointing

Drake House Farm
Booked a few days here based on the many positive reviews and 5 star rating. The site has several good points - generous hard-standing pitches, a quiet rural location, hook up and water on each pitch, wi-fi included. After leaving the A59, the approach to the site is not easy, involving a long single track stone bridge and narrow roads through West Bradford village. "Fantastic views" is not really justified, with caravans in storage to one side, a large neighbouring static caravan site across the field and a nice view of Pendle Hill, partly obscured during our stay by smoke blowing across from the cement works. The single toilet, wash basin and electric shower located inside part of a barn were tired, without any heating and not at all up to the standard we would expect from a CL these days. If you're self-sufficient, that wouldn't be a problem but if, like us, you rely on site toilet and shower facilities, you won't be impressed. We also thought the price (£25 per night) was on the high side for what was on offer, especially considering some Club sites cost less than that at this time of year. Overall we were disappointed and it won't be on our repeat visit list.

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.
