Exceptionally quiet site with level hardstandings

We stayed here for 3 nights in October 2018. It must be one of the most tranquil sites we have ever stayed on. Roger and Sarah were very pleasant and helpful. There is a good bus service to Lancaster in the north and Knott End (and thence to Fleetwood and Blackpool) to the south. The buses are every 90 minutes. We had no problem accessing the Lune cycleway as pedestrians, via a rather steep railway bridge. It was not possible to get our bikes there however as the gap allowed is very small. There is a good woodland walk of around 2 miles within the hall grounds. As others mention, the Stork pub is a 30 minute walk away and you can catch the bus back if you get the timing right. 1015 am, then every 90 minutes until 7pm. Walking back on the road is not recommended, especially after dark, as there is no footpath. Nice bar at the golf club and a pleasant garden centre are additional attractions.

Excellent site - Friendly hosts

This is an excellent CL site with very friendly owners. Nice walks to Glasson Dock or Lancaster. While there are no electrical hook ups on the CL, the owners have a small private site 500 meters away with several fully equipped hard standings and new toilet block. Either site is highly recommended. We don’t often go to the same place twice as we like new adventures but we will go back to this site.

Exceptionally Well Maintained Site.

Enjoyed a couple of days here, after a little retail therapy in nearby Lancaster. Being November and in a motorhome, our one priority was hardstanding, of which, all pitches are and a generous size with it. The site is peacefully located in the grounds of Ashton Hall in what appears to be the back of a walled garden and is fairly enclosed, so sheltered. We did hear traffic noise from the main road from inside the van and could imagine it would be pretty evident when/if sitting out in summer.This was mainly at commuting times and really didn't disturb us siting inside. The chemical disposal and bins are neat and tidy and in a fenced area. We had basically come away for some peace and quiet with the intention of a few walks but disappointingly, there are no footpaths close by. The track that leads to the coast ends at a private house and no access can be gained to the coastal footpath.I had to be content with wandering onto the golf course and around some of the grounds.As for the peacefulness, that was wonderful as we were the only folks on site and the sound of the trees swaying in the wind was very soothing! There are no electric hook-ups although our friendly host offered to plug us in from a nearby house. We declined as we are fine running on gas but on our second night the temperature plunged to below freezing so we had a cold wake up! All in all, a great site set in lovely grounds. There is the added bonus? of a garden centre with shop and cafe and the golf club which own Ashton Hall has a bar/ restaurant open to the public.

For me, almost perfect. For my wife, spot on.

We both loved the site and the owners could not be more friendly or helpful. My small letdown was the donkey calling at 5:45am. The misses loves donkeys so she was happy as she could be. Many thanks for a lovely weekend, D and G.
