Why stay here ...

In an area which traditionally has a mild, warm climate making it an excellent summer getaway, Blackpool South Club Site is level and open, with good screening from the road. The caravan park gives visitors convenient access to the town of Blackpool, which as Britain's premier seaside resort offers non-stop amusement for the whole family from morning to night. Children can also enjoy the playground on site, and horse riding which is based just around the corner.

Blackpool South Club Site is an ideal gateway to the beautiful Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks. Famous attractions include The Sands and the Illuminations (late August to early November) and the Blackpool Pleasure Beach where you will find thrilling rides like the tallest, scariest roller coaster in the UK.

But the reasons to stay at Blackpool South aren't limited to the city limits of Blackpool. Just a few miles south of the site are the more relaxed towns of Lytham and St Anne's, famous for their golf courses and elegant shopping arcades as well as beautiful restaurants and exhilarating walks. St Anne's has plenty of sandy beaches ideal for families, and in Lytham you can take a leisurely stroll around Lowther Park or along Lytham Green. Blackpool South Club Site really does have something for everyone anytime of the year.

Lovely site

Visited Sat 18/19 May. Stayed at the site for the first time. Only did one night, but really liked it! Within a short (10-15 min) drive of Blackpool and Lytham. Ideally located, not far from the motorway. I was aware, from other reviews about the road noise, but the warden did mention which was the quieter side of the site, to be fair, we decided it didn't matter which pitch we had, they are all good pitches. Didn't really hear much noise during the day, more obvious in the evening. Hasn't stopped us from making it a regular site for us. Lovely garden centre/cafe (with dog menu!!) within 15 minute walk down the lane. Also, a roller rink/meerkat/animal corner/skate park on the same lane. Great base for the area. (By car). Even though only given the site  a 3 rating for families, there are plenty of family friendly things to do nearby

Just returned from a short break and we have to mention Assistant Wardens Steve and Di. We had a bit of a problem but they came to our rescue, thank you both so much, you are a credit to the Club.

Everything a TCC Ltd site should be.

My wife and I stayed between 9/4 to 14/4 April and found everything as it should be. Our welcome from Julie was warm and informative. Our pitch (35) was south facing so sunny all day ( we caught a good week) The toilet blocks were very clean and despite other comments to the opposite view we both found the showers excellent with constant hot water and good flow. ( I heard there was a heater issue the week before, but now rectified ) When I came to start my Sorento on the first morning I found the battery flat!! A quick walk over to the office and Glen was immediately on hand with equipment to get me started. A quick ride to Motor Accessory( next to Febland) I met Carmel who immediately diagnosed the fault as a faulty cell and ordered me a very competitively priced replacement battery and fitted it the following day So in summary, great Wardens, clean and well maintained site and amazingly helpful in an emergency. What more can I say. Thank you Caravan Club

Clean But Out Dated Shower Block

Wardens very polite and welcoming. Shower block clean but cold and out dated could do with a upgrade, shower cubicles very small and water pressure non existant in showers and loos. Don't understand why the 1.00pm arrival ? Unfortunately we won't be returning.

Showers and 1pm arrivals

I was very disappointed in the showers on my recent stay. We’ve been coming to this site for many years and have never been cold but last week I was. I am an evening showerer. The first day I went across around 4pm to use the toilet and it was lovely and warm so decided to shower then- very fortunately as I went at 6pm and it was freezing. The next day it was cold at 5pm. I gave up that night. In the end I had to go around 5pm or freeze. Morning showerers got a better deal ~ it was warm in there well before 6am till around 9am. A notice on the wall stating what times the heating would be on would be appreciated. I love this site once I get on it. Hate the 1pm arrival. 12pm was bad enough but 1pm means peak traffic and a wasted day. We always leave first thing in the morning on day of departure. I think a split system of arrivals would be fairer. I understand weekenders want to stay longer and if they are arriving late afternoon on a Friday and leaving 12 on a Sunday fine but others want to come earlier and leave earlier and this should be accommodated.
