Decent site overall

We were anxious about the possible state of the ground in the light of other reports here and the fact that we’d had 4 days of constant heavy rain immediately prior to arrival. We needn’t have worried, yes the grass was a tad long (you can’t mow sodden grass) and a little soft underfoot especially at the lower part of the site. With a 4x4 we had no problem getting on or off. Good views from the higher pitches. The only issue with the site is the fact that there aren’t individual EHU trips so if anything goes amiss (which it did) the main consumer unit throws and everyone loses power. This happened four times, three of which were in the early hours so we had to wait until a respectable hour before calling the owners to turn it back on. By a process of elimination the offending caravan was identified as there was no problem after they left. It’s a good walking area and in theory walks are possible from site . Alas most are overgrown and signage disappears, so we ended up using the car to reach better options. Pleasant walk into Longridge where good bus services are available to Preston (every 10 minutes weekdays), Blackburn and Clitheroe. We would return.

Ideal site for us

Easy to find, close enough Longridge for shops, but far enough away to be totally quiet on a night. Large field, the grass may have been a bit long for some, but I would rather it be long than bring grass cuttings into the caravan, comments re 4x4 required not really a problem when we arrived (late May) there was no sign of any grass damage and it did rain before we left, again no problems. Could be different after long period of rain, but same could be said for most grass fields. Ideal location for touring area with plenty of walks and local interest, Blackpool in striking distance, that’s dancing in the tower ballroom for us, get a reduced rate through club membership offers. Tap had decent pressure and hozelock connect as it becoming the norm these days and makes connection simple, toilet disposal was manhole again all efficient, what more can you ask for £12 per night. Thoroughly recommend site.

Soft ground field.

On arrival, we were advised to walk around the pitch files which was a filed with a few electric hook ups. There had been some fairly heavy rain overnight and this combined with unmown tall grass on uneven ground contributed to my outfit becoming quickly bogged down so that I was unable to manoeuvre into position and had to ask the owner to rescue us with a tractor. Unless you are towing with a four wheel drive (preferably a Landrover) with town & country tyres, don't try to use this site. After struggling for half an hour to position our caravan and becoming very dirty with mud we gave up and left the site. We will not be using this site in future.

Very peaceful

Big open field with good views of surrounding hills and friendly owner. Comments about v soft ground in previous reviews are well made. 10 minute walk to local pub (Alston Arms) which had well-above average food.

A few niggles

The site is much larger than described with lots of space between pitches and a clean toilet, quite a long walk from the pitches, with ample paper and soap. It's in a great location with a 15-20 minute walk to town. Try and plan your trip for the August BH weekend as the local cricket club, 10 minute walk, host a beer and cider festival that starts on Friday and finishes on Sunday. Good TV reception and 3G on Three network. The niggles - it is on very soft ground so if you're in a motorhome stay at the top of the field. If you go to the bottom, and it's very wet, only do so if you have a 4x4. The power tripped out on several occasions. Yes it was BH and a full site but this should not happen especially at 2.30am! It had rained a lot so the grass had not been cut very short making it very wet. Finally, they have a large dog which you have to run the gauntlet to get to the toilet. She's not going to bite but she does get excited and jump up. Obviously, for those of you that don't 'do' dogs this would be an issue.
