Lovely site with great views

Wiswell Shay Farm
Great site. The owners have clearly spent quite a bit of money time and effort upgrading the site. The drive is newly laid and though it is on a slope, access easy. We are new to caravanning. This was only our third trip out we managed it fine. The toilet and shower were spotless and cleaned regularly. The lawned areas were well-tended and picnic benches have been added, complete with flowering tubs. Dog and child friendly. Handy for Whalley and Clitheroe and just over a mile from Spring Wood. Highly recommended. We will definitely be back.

Top of our list and reluctant to let you know why!

Wiswell Shay Farm
For around two decades, both as a family of four and more recently, a couple with dogs; we have stayed on this site regularly. Different seasons but always the same reason. Twice this year since lockdown was eased. Wiswell Shay Farm cl is conveniently situated off the a59 and a short 20 min walk into Whalley which offers dog friendly pubs, restaurants, shops, bus terminal and train station. Lots of history in the area not to mention the quaint Wiswell village itself and local pub. Over the last couple decades we have witnessed the cl change from a field offering centres rally’s, to the 5 hardstanding pitches with electric it has evolved today. A new entrance with newly laid tarmac drive and additional toilet facilities to boot. The lovely young enthusiastic Bell family keeps the site tidy, clean and welcoming. In this current climate especially, we use our own bathroom, take our rubbish home with us ( and mostly do anyway with few exceptions!) and feel safe with distancing guidance here. So you can see now why I’m reluctant to let you know why it Top of our list!! Taylor family & dogs

Lovely little site

Wiswell Shay Farm
Lovely little site that is very handy for us, being only 30 mins from our storage. WC is a bit quirky but lovely and clear and everything works as it should. A small length of hose on the waste water tap would have made cleaning the WC cassette a little easier. Had no issues with getting onto the site although I had to ask a neigbour where to pay / book in. A little sign at the entrance would have been helpful. Pitches well laid out. Only slight downside was there is quite a bit of road noise with it being next to some busy roads, but otherwise perfect. Will definitely return.

Two nights became three

Wiswell Shay Farm
This site does have a very steep entrance - just keep going. As you enter the drive there is a fork; the left side has been smoothed and is the best and widest approach. If you are not sure both the left and right will gain entrance to the site - so just keep going. The site itself has hard standings, a 16 amp electric supply which worked perfectly and also passed the polarity test that I did on my Fluke meter. The toilet and shower are in a little shed and were very clean. There are two taps on the outside of the shed, one near the chemical waste area and one around the corner for drinking water, both taps are clearly labelled. Bins are down by the house; we didn't find this a problem. The site itself has lovely views, is very quiet, the pitches are well spaced out, there are picnic tables; we liked the site and stayed an extra night.

Disapointed

Wiswell Shay Farm

Pleasant enough site but was let down in several areas so wont be returning. 1. bins were down at farm house her own bins so no separate bins for cl. 2. Toilet point had no rinse tap available. 3. ACCESS TO SITE omg after 3rd attempt actually made it up the hill wouldn't of been as much of a issue if no loose gravel, we actually went through the farm yard, as the official entrance was even worse, when i mentioned it to her all she said was "you wont get in site without a 4x4" we have a Hyundia i40 so not a 4x4 defo wont return to this site

Comment from the CL Owner:

The new site inspectors came to visit this caravan site last year and was completely happy with the site entrance, site facilities and the site as a whole, however I do appreciate the drive needs some attention. 

This caravan site has 2 x taps. 

• drinking water

• chemical rinsing tap
