Friendly and welcoming

Stayed 4 nights in early Sept. Made very welcome on arrival with detailed explanations of all facilities. Excellent COVID protection evident. Decent walk from site to Knott End avoiding main roads. Also enjoyed promenade walk from Cleverly to Blackpool. Trough of Bowland worth a visit if enjoy walking. Shovels pub worth a visit and again Covid care evident. We will return. PS Great homemade cushions by Linda (for charity)

HEART WARMING

Stayed 14th - 17th August - testing out our new caravan! Arrived the morning after a downpour thus the ground was sodden, that said the site owner was on hand to assist with placing the caravan in a most suitable position with ease. It's a small intimate site with only 5 vans which means it's quite peaceful and leisurely. Horse meadows and uninterrupted views meant the sunset was amazing. A small but useful shop across the road served as emergency store but other shops are only a short drive away. Martin and Linda are excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble being that the weather had been dreadful they accommodated all our needs and being caravaners themselves where informative and knowledgeable. Would defiantly like to revisit and stay longer next time.. Angela & Tony Johnson

Fantastic CL site.

Most accurate instructions given to find this perfect site by Martin & Linda. On arrival to site Linda was on hand to welcome me and the wife as Martin was out. No problems getting our van sited everything was explained to us by Linda and we was shown around the site for the amenities. First impressions was that we was going to enjoy the 5 nights we booked for and we was not disappointed. The weather was very sunny and hot. During the night we had thunder and lightning for two nights. The site was kept clean and tidy by Martin & Linda. Nothing to complain about the site it was just as the other reviews have stated very nice and peaceful. Will be visiting this little gem of a site again. Martin and Linda asked us to let them know if there was any problems with site and always spoke to me and the wife when we saw each other. Both always had time to spend with their customers on site. 100% one of the best we have been on

Great little site

Lovely little site , very nice warm welcome from Martin , everything explained and shown where everything was .Choose either grass or h/standing pitch according to taste or weather (vacancy permitting of course) . Toilet / washroom was spotless with lashings of hot water to both . Handy for both Blackpool and Fleetwood and all of surrounding area .Definitely recommend , and will definitely return when next in the area .
