Why stay here ...

This site is a large, slightly sloping, lawned field with plenty of space and open views of the surrounding fields. Each pitch is marked and has electric hook-up.

Enjoy an evening meal at The Stork Inn half a mile away or The Mill at Condor Green which sits on the Glasson branch of the Lancaster canal. Alternatively pick up a lighter bite at Cafe d'Lune on the Lancashire Coastal Path. This is also used as the award winning Bay Cycle Way, 80 miles of relatively flat riding around the spectacular Morecambe Bay from Glasson Dock to Barrow, Glasson Dock (2 miles distant) opened in 1787 and is still in use today on a small scale. Well worth a visit to watch the toing and froing of boats, look at the picturesque marina or out across Glasson Salt Marsh from the view point at the top of Tithe Barn Hill. Don't forget to visit The Smokehouse tucked away next to the dock, for a fantastic range of smoked seafood, meat, preserves, biscuits etc.

Take a trip into the historic city of Lancaster, 10 minutes from the site. You could catch a bus from the end of the driveway! Lancaster has a large range of shops, cafes and museums.

The M6 Allows easy transport north into the Lake District and beyond or south to Manchester.

Recommendable

We spent 4 nights on this site and had an immediate warm welcome from the owner . She showed us our pitch high on a sloping paddock .The pitches certainly need levelling blocks and our electric cable was to within its last inch of reach from the bollard She did say she could lend us an extension if needed (with only 10 amps available, not a good idea I think) It was a decent distance from the toilet behind the house, but it was always clean with new towel daily. The grass was kept a touch long for my liking as when wet it meant your footwear got very wet. Fortunately we keep wellies in the 'van and used those. Good tv and phone signals were had and good views over fields were nice. We noticed another CL with 5 pitches were lower and behind the house which would have made trips to the toilet and water tap much shorter. perhaps because we had a fair amount of rain recently it might have been too wet to be used. She didn't say and I didn't ask. The route to the site given in the site directory from the motorway involves one and a half miles of vey narrow busy road used by artic lorries etc, negotiating tight stretches and two narrow severe hump-back canal bridges. We found a better route wihich we would have used had we known before getting there. The site is only lit at night with 'fairy lights' so you will need a torch to find your way to toilet and water tap. We enjoyed our stay and would go again - using the longer but wider route mentioned above. There are plenty of places to visit so give it a go.

One of our Favourites

We have visited this site twice before, and due to return for a 3rd time this weekend. The site is excellently maintained and we have found it to be a very relaxed, where one can enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside, but Lancaster is only 15 minutes away. On a practical note, the ground is slightly sloped and the front of the caravan needs to be raised slightly at the front (we use the riser blocks you can buy from any caravan supplier). Overall, I would definitely recommend this site, and it is always one of our go to sites when we want a quiet relaxing time.

You won't be disappointed !

If you are considering this site, don't hesitate. From the lovely warm reception from the owners to the cheery wave good bye, this site has everything you would hope to find at a cl site. Lovely uninterrupted county views & spacious pitches. Numerous wonderful nature walks & cycle rides within a short distance of the site. Thank you to Cath & hubby, we hope to return soon.

Heron's Wood

We decided fairly late last week to make the most of a day off and have a 1 nighter somewhere local. Glasson Dock is only an hour away from home so ideal. On arrival, blackboard with our names on directed us to choose any pitch up in the paddock area. Grass pitches only but bone dry underfoot so not a problem. Warden had told me on the phone that she wouldn't be around to take payment but would catch me at some point. £13.00 for a lovely overnight stay in fabulous peaceful surroundings. Very good dog walks in the area and we ventured along to the coastal path and had a walk. Site itself is not immaculate, pitches in front of the house looked well manicured but the paddock less so. Could do with the grass being a little shorter and the water and chemical waste points could be better signposted. EHU at 10amp was more than sufficient but if parked on end pitches, you would need the longest cable which we did have. You will also need levelling blocks due to the lie of the pitches. Toilet is available but location is not obvious from paddock. We will visit again because you can not get better value for money. True darkness at night, little road noise and yet not remote from amenities in neighbouring villages and the City of Lancaster.
