Why stay here ...

Dale View is a quiet, adult only site located adjacent to a peaceful coarse fishing lake. Set at the foot of Beacon Fell Country Park in the Forest of Bowland, the site is situated within an area of outstanding natural beauty. Campers can also enjoy glorious views of the nearby Bleasdale Fells. All pitches are hard standing and each pitch has an electric hook up, a drinking water tap and grey water drain and plenty of space for awnings. Dogs are welcome on site.

The site is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding stretch of beautiful unspoilt countryside. The nearby fells and the River Brock have an abundance of wildlife for all to enjoy. This area is a haven for walkers, cyclists and explorers with plenty of scenic walking routes and numerous villages within driving distance to discover. The small market town of Garstang has a variety of supermarkets and shopping facilities to offer. The historic town of Lancaster and seaside town of Blackpool are also within driving distance and offer visitors a whole host of attractions to suit all tastes.

Fully services pitches.

Great Little Site

Dale View
This site is well maintained with power, water and grey water at teach pitch. All pitches are hard standing and fairly level. The central grassed area has two picnic tables so you can sit out and watch the sunset making the fells change colours. Did several 10+ mile walks mostly off road, but the lanes were very quiet as compared with some parts of the Dales and the Lakes. If you like history, there are some great water mill ruins in the Brock Valley and a Neolithic stone circle at Bleasdale. Mrs Bell was so welcoming and full of great tips about the area. Very little light pollution and no noise at night. We will return.

A number of very good points but a bit disappointing

Dale View
First the good points: 1. The view from the pitches over the fells of the Forest of Bowland is superb. 2. Fully serviced pitches. 3. Greeted by the owner on arrival and given an excellent information pack of the Forest of Bowland and a leaflet with plan of the paths around the nearby Beacon Fell Country Park, from the top of which there are panoramic views over much of Lancashire. Disappointments 1. Notwithstanding that the pitches are laid out with gravel to a high standard and well maintained, there is a lot of gravel and only a limited amount of grass around each pitch. 2. There are no 'off-road' footpaths immediately near the site and although there are some not too far away, it does mean walking a bit along narrow roads on which there are quite a few vehicles. This might not be too important for some people but for us dog owners we like to be able to get off-road from a site straight away if possible. Overall a site well worth visiting but dog owners might find it a bit restrictive

A site with a view!

Dale View
Just returned from three nights on this absolute gem of a site having been warmly welcomed by Helen on our arrival. As noted in most reviews the site has wonderful views of the fells... when it's not raining... For most of our stay it did rain but it did relent on our last night only to be replaced snow instead! John came over in the morning to check we were OK and to let us know that the local lanes were all passable if a little wet and slushy - it was a reassuring touch. It's clear this site is owned by members - well laid out, good sized hardstanding pitches each with its own water supply and grey water waste drain. For £14 this is great value for money! The directions to the site are also spot on and well worth following as many of the local lanes can be a little tight and there a couple of hump backed bridges we went over from around Garstang which would be too sharp for a car and caravan... Of the local towns and villages, we enjoyed Chipping although it was out of season and Clitheroe which offered a lot of interesting and individual shops as well as a castle and plenty of decent places to eat. This was our first time here but it certainly won't be our last visit - I suspect availability may be a challenge in the warmer months... It's worth pointing out that any mobile signal is intermittent and we struggled to get decent TV reception but these are hardly show stoppers and won't stop us returning. Many thanks Helen & John!

Lovely Visit

Dale View
We have just spent the weekend at Dale View and thoroughly enjoyed it, most friendly welcome off Helen the owner, easy access to Beacon Fell and good area for cycling, lovely views from our pitch, no nearby pubs or shops so if you want to get away from it all this is the site.
