Embarrassing

Red Rocks Fishery
After going through the gates onto the driveway to the site we saw an extremely large American style outfit about to make a late departure at the far end. We indicated that they shouldn't proceed as we were already part the way along. They ignored our warning and continued regardless, forcing us to go onto the verge at the side of the driveway. We discovered that the verge was very wet and boggy and unfortunately left a tyre mark. We were just siting our caravan on the pitch when the site owner appeared and berated us in no uncertain terms for marking the grass before we had time to explain what had happened. We found the situation highly embarrassing and considered leaving. The following are some suggestions for the site owner: 1) Ascertain the facts before commenting. 2) Ensure pitches are vacated before the 12 noon cut off. 3) Only open the site during the drier months to preserve the grass.

One night stay

Red Rocks Fishery
We have just returned from a one night stay with our friends at this lovely little site ! We arrived in the afternoon and got set up for our stay .it’s a lovely site with a pretty fishing lake . Lovely surrounding and very easy to get to from the motorway. We walked to the nearest pub The New hall tavern which was about a 15 minute walk down a fast moving road but not a problem. Food is proper pub grub, reasonable price and tasty ! The landlady and staff are lovely! We returned to the site and had a lovely night! The site has a shed building that has a toilet and sink. There is fresh water and electric hook up! In the morning we met the lovely lady who owns the site ! Overall a lovely little site . A little noise from the surrounding roads but it didn’t bother us at all as once inside your van you can’t hear it anyway!10 mins drive from Hoghton Tower and Hoghton Bottoms which is a lovely walk with waterfalls! We would all definitely stay here again!

Beautiful site and so picturesque

Red Rocks Fishery
What a lovely little site in a very peaceful location. You would never know it was so handy for the motorway. Received a lovely welcome from the owner. There is a lovely restaurant called New Hall Tavern nearby. It has excellent food and very friendly staff - good idea to book though. We only stayed one night in our way North but would definitely stay longer as lots of places to visit nearby. Can highly recommend.

Nice CL

Red Rocks Fishery
All in all this is a good cl. The toilet is in a shed but is perfectly ok if a little cold. The area was lovely but the noise from the nearby motorway was a pain. The good side of its location was that it was a cracking stop off point on our way up north. I could see it getting a bit boggy here as it was getting that way when we went in November and it had been quite dry recently. The fishing was in my mind too expensive at £7 but don't let me put you off perhaps I watch my pennies too much. To sum up I will use this site again - if not the fishing.
