Old Mill House

We have just been to this CL site (October half term 2015) to take our little boy to see the Blackpool lights. This rural site is owned by one of the most friendly and caring owners that we have ever met. Miss L Baker made our stay a really pleasant one where nothing was a problem to her. The pitches are perfect size with a nice clean toilet facility and electric hook up. It is a 15 min drive to the Bispham tram stop which is ideal as you can park in a side street and ride the tram instead of getting stuck in traffic. We had a problem getting stuck in mud as it had rained heavily (car only as caravan was on hard standing). Miss Baker was really helpful and did all she could along with our fellow neighbour to help us leave the site. I hasten to add that it was only our site (number 2) that was affected by this. The CL is brilliant - check it out - brilliant to go and visit Blackpool. I strongly recommend this site.
We have just returned from this site having spent 4 nights there. The site is a little tight if you have a big outfit but won't be a problem for most. Yes there is road noise as the site is right beside the road but you do get used to it and it does get quieter in the evening. It's in a great location to visit Blackpool , cleveleys , fleetwood and other local places. The site owner is very friendly and helpful and is always on hand if you need anything. We will be back next year when we go back up that way.
Fairly narrow CL so struggled getting our twin axle onto the pitch. Pretty site, but spoilt as its right next to a busy road. No gate or secure fencing, so couldn't take our eyes off our toddler for a second which is a shame as he likes to run around. Also arrived to find a huge pile of dog poo on our pitch which the owner promptly removed, but would have expected better from fellow club members before us. So all in all, not bad but won't go back purely because of the road.
Comment from The Club:
Many thanks for your review. The CL Owner has fully hardground tracks in the pitches to help ease parking and she has not previously had any reports of difficulty with access so we are sorry to hear that you had difficulty pitching your twin axle. The Mill House is a small site in a picturesque garden and popular with members due to the beautiful surroundings. I hope this helps and thanks again for taking the time to leave a review.
