My wife and I have stayed at this site on two occasions over the past month and on each occasion we have had a very warm welcome from Anne the site owner. She has been very informative about the surrounding area and local walks and provides laminated walks in the area. Anne has also been very informative about how work on the farm has diversified which was interesting. The staff who work on the farm are all very polite and helpful. The pitches are well spaced out with open views and water points between two pitches. The site is very peaceful with no road noise. There is a lot of wildlife in the area and there is even a bird hide on the site for members to use. An altogether lovely site with a lovely owner we will return.
Been to this site a few times over the last 5years.we are in a motorhome and we like it as there are some nice walks from the site.and the owner has laminated some nice walks starting from the site. The site is basic but that's what we prefer.this site is out in the countryside so if smells and noise from farm machinery isn't your cup of tea.
What a fabulous CL this is. A warm friendly welcome from the owner. A very good little reception room with lots of information / walking sheets Hard standings (6) water tap for each pair of pitches, electric points and waste facilities. The surrounding fields are full of lapwings, snipe, curlews, partridge and pheasants and the nearby woods have deer grazing. The local area is a walkers paradise - plenty of superb routes through super scenery - AND several great tea rooms to recover in!! The owner is happy to help / offer advice re places to visit and walking routes. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED SITE. Footnote: other reviews have referred to machinery noise. This is a working farm, it processes wood chipping, a heat exchange unit runs 24/7, there is some background noise BUT it had no adverse or interfering effect during our visit (and I for one am a very light sleeper!!)
Similar to JC we too have been coming here since it first opened. We never tire of visiting and love the peace and quiet. Yes the new Bio fuel business does emit some noise but after our most recent visit it does seem to be quieter than our visit last year. What noise there is you become accustomed too fairly quickly. The hard standings seem to have had a new covering of stone this year. We will keep on returning :-)
Looking at my caravan logbook, I find that we have visited this site on no less than 43 occasions since the site opened in 2007. You could say we like it, it’s a gem! From day one, Anne and Brian have been welcoming and eager to please and after so many visits we regard them not just as our hosts but as old friends. Although the site is some distance from the A6, the connecting lanes are more than adequate for caravans and access onto the site is very good. Being a working farm in the heart of the countryside the nearest shop is a good four miles away but the local market town of Garstang, about six miles away, is a good shopping centre with a selection of supermarkets and a charming ‘Olde World’ atmosphere on it’s narrow and bustling High Street. If walking or cycling is your forte then Broadgate Farm is an ideal location, quiet lanes and a plethora of footpaths make the area very popular with both visitors and local groups alike. If fell walking is not to your taste then a short car drive up Beacon Fell and a leisurely stroll from the car park up to the summit gives glorious views over Lancashire and the Fylde coast. Being on the wrong side of 70 we don’t want a busy or noisy site and so the peaceful and relaxing nature of Broadgate is great and the views of the surrounding fells are fantastic, particularly when viewed from the nearby bird hide, a short up-hill gentle walk away. Electric and water points are shared between every two pitches so no humping water barrels in the pouring rain, yes, it does rain even in the Forest of Bowland! Dogs and children are regular visitors on site providing some entertainment and a focal point for getting to know our neighbours, and the wildlife is plentiful - pheasants wander around the site as if they own it! To sit and relax with a glass of wine after a nice barbeque and to watch the sun set behind the hills is something to savour. Roll-on visits 44, 45, 46 .....
