Wonderful site

My wife, young niece (8 years old) and I have just returned from a week on this site and our whole experience was excellent. The pitch is what other sites term a super pitch as each pitch is hard standing with its own water supply (you can use an Aqua roll stopcock adapter and pipe connection (from Go-Outdoors)) so no need for re-filling, the pitches also have their own grey waste grid and faultless electricity supply. My wife particularly wanted me to share that the toilet and shower block were always pristine, which was my experience of the men’s facilities. During my shower time I met many of the people from the adjacent long stay site and they were courteous and friendly. A mop bucket with clean water was left by the door and everyone gave the floor a quick wipe over if they were in danger of leaving messy footprints. A cleaning in progress sign warned of the drying floor. The site was very peaceful and on two occasions we enjoyed spotting the micro-lights circling in the evening sky whilst eating out on our adjacent grassed area. Site staff were very friendly and recommended the local eggs which we tried and they were superb. We used the site as a base to discover the Fylde coast where we enjoyed coastal walks at: Pilling which was a 5 minute drive away (free parking); Knott End which was a 10 minute drive, where the ferry usually departs to Fleetwood (free parking); Cleveley’s beautiful beach front was about a 30 minute drive with free street parking found adjacent to the front; Fleetwood was a 35 minute drive with free parking on The Esplanade, nice sandy beach; Blackpool was a 35 minute drive, found free parking on a side street behind The Imperial Hotel but it was a bit of a trek to the Tower: Morecambe was a 35 minute drive but has a lovely front with sandy beach, we parked in a long stay off Marine Rd Central near the RNLI shop for £3.50 all day.

ONE OF THE BEST

We have been coming to this site over the years since it first opened. It is a first class CL with first class amenities. Peter & Sheila who manage the site are lovely people and very easy going and great to get on with. The 5 van site is adjacent to a much larger seasonal site which is totally separated by hedging and a rise & fall barrier. Ease of access is good to the CL. You are in a very remote quite area the only noise issue is from aircraft and microlights overhead which take off from the local aerodrome, but this is not obtrusive in any way. There is room on each pitch for your caravan & awning and a parking facility in front of the toilet block for everyone cars. Hook up, water supply and grey waste to each hard standing pitch too, which is a bonus. About 5 mile from Garstang which has supermarkets, banks etc. There is a fishing lake on site, although I don't fish I'm sure anglers would be in their element. To sum up, if you want a nice relaxing break away from it all, on fully serviced hard standing pitch, for a reasonable price - then look no further than Near Moss Farm, its sheer heaven.

Distressing Experience

We stayed here on the 10th June for 2 nights.  On arrival we were extremely happy with the site and facilities.  It is very nice.  However, things turned sour on the Saturday evening.  England were playing in the Eurovision Cup and as I am not a football fan, I decided to walk our little dog around the adjoining touring site.  I was totally shocked when a "lady" appeared out of her caravan and proceeded to be very abusive and told me I was trespassing and I had no right to be there.  She actually said to me I was breaking the law!  I have always followed rules and regulations and would not have entered the site if the owner had said it was private.  In fact, on arrival at the site I asked the owner where I could walk the dogs and he said "go anywhere you want".  I was extremely upset and humiliated and will never return.

Short Break

Access to the site is down a narrow lane. We did follow the directions given by the site. We arrived after 6.00pm on a Wednesday night so reception was closed they had put our pitch details in the window of reception. Access to the pitch was really easy and lovely and level. Reception is closed on a Thursday so we couldn't arrange WI-FI. The area is very pretty with views of the Lake District mountains from the entrance of the site. The shower block is very clean and warm. All the staff we spoke to were very friendly and helpful. Shops are a short drive away with supermarkets available in Garstang.

great base for weekend away

Just had a great weekend at this site, pitches level, large and accessible. Toilet and shower a little bit tired but great for a CL. Our children were well behaved but our 7 year old daughter was ''warned off'' the adult only seasonal pitch area. Her only crime was walking around the ROAD to admire the flowers whilst we were packing up to leave. Harsh!!
