Beautiful Tranquil Site

Stayed here for the first time, though we know the area well from having a static caravan in the past.What a beautiful tranquil site within some of the best countryside. Easy access to the site from the M6 following the clear directions in the handbook. We were made very welcome by the owner who showed us to the CL field which has a choice of grass or hard standing pitches all with EHU. As we were the only ones on site for the first night, we had our choice of all pitches. The views are wonderful with many footpaths direct from site. Very peaceful with only the sound of birds or an occasional passing car. We will definitely be returning to this lovely place.

A little hideaway

45 minutes from home and this little CL was just a little gem found for those of us who are in the main self sufficient. On arrival, Matthew met us, he was very welcoming and highlighted the Nature Reserve close by for dog walks and also made us aware of other walks in the area. He then left us to it after telling us to pitch where we wanted. Hardstanding and grass pitches available, typical winter ground underfoot but firm enough and not holding any water. We had the site to ourselves so doggy was a allowed some freedom when leaving the MH for our walk and loved rolling around in the grass which I assume would be lovingly maintained from springtime but being winter had some length to it but was still tidy enough. Site itself along with house and holiday cottages is for sale but owners are still looking after it well. Access was very easy and views from pitch were lovely with open fields, limestone walls and herds of Deer at dusk. Very little noise apart from bird song and the odd passing car. True night darkness also with no lights on site, torches necessary for the last dog walk of the day. Rubbish and recycling point at entrance onto site, ehu available. Water is via a tap at the gate and chemical waste in the next field but readily accessible. At £15 per night, we judged this site as one of our visit again sites, close to home and lots of walks in the area.

Good stopover not far from M6 and worth staying longer

Spent 1 night here Aug 2017 en route from Scotland to Midlands. It was ideal for us - quiet and good location not far from M6. Appreciated the easy dog-walking on site for early and late walks. Road from A6 is tight in places with caravan. The local area was very scenic and a couple of nice villages to visit. Pleasant welcome and owners really helpful. Laid back farm site with free-range hens and friendly sheep. Clean, adequate facilities if you do not wish to use your own.

Pleasant break

Nice welcome from owners, couple of narrow lanes on approach from A6 but some with passing places. Plenty of local wildlife in surrounding fields and chickens roaming the site. Easy access to local beaches and countryside. Site owners not intrusive at all but are there if needed, toilet clean and accessible, didn't use the shower.

Peaceful gem

We stayed here for two nights this weekend and had a lovely peaceful time. The facilities are basic but clean and there was plenty of hot water for a morning shower. The exit out of the site is a little tight as mentioned by others but please don't let that put you off, we've only been caravanning a year and didn't find it a problem. All in all a lovely welcoming quiet getaway perfect for exploring the Arnside and Silverdale AONB.

Peace and Quiet

Only stayed for one night, wish it could have been for longer. Wonderful site in a perfect setting. Matthew was a great host and very helpful and informative. Shower spotlessly clean and warm. WC the same. Site overlooks fields with woodlands in the distance, bird watchers will have a field day here, several deer in adjacent field wandered through in the evening. Perfect peace and quiet. We took a stroll down to Arnside (2 mile away) along the road, nice little town with beautiful views all around. Will definitely return.

Our favourite CL

Been coming here for many years and really like it. Always a friendly welcome. Lovely views from site, often see deer in the next field. Wonderful area, good for wildlife, always tranquil and interesting limestone scenery. Don't find access a problem as mentioned by others.

Another wonderful stay!

Just enjoyed another stay at Matthew's wonderful CL. Lovely area for walking and great views. Great dog walk available too. Very convenient for driving into Arnside or Silverdale. Lovely site with 4 hard standings and 2 grass pitches, electric available. Visited a number of times and will continue to do so, love it!

Lovely weekend

We wanted to visit Leighton Moss RSPB and chose this CL due to its proximity. We were very impressed we had a lovely greeting from Matthew upon arrival. We thought the facilities were excellent and didn't have a problem with access but to be fair we were in our campervan. We have visited many CLS and we rate this as one of the best. Very quiet lovely views we hope to return again Thank you
