Location + Surroundings
Set up on the site of Fylde Trout Fishery, this quiet and peaceful location is the perfect place to relax and unwind with its beautiful clear lake and stunning lakeside lodge. It is a family-oriented site, so it is children- and dog-friendly, welcoming families to camp together in groups.
- Wildlife watching
The campsite is home to ‘Fylde Trout Fishery’. Established in 2008, this beautiful, five-acre lake is host to rainbow, blue, and brown trout up to 12 pounds. If guests enjoy fly fishing, then they are in for a treat. The lake is surrounded by wildlife and has been planted with native trees and hedges to blend in with the surrounding countryside. It’s not unusual to see wild deer as well as the usual suspects (rabbits, squirrels, pheasants, and a large selection of birds including kingfishers, hawks, and owls).
There is a large field (about the size of four football pitches!) for children to play on. The property also has footballs, a rounders’ set, swing ball, cricket, and kites all in the ‘Mini Pod’, and there is a host of board games in the main lodge (for when the weather isn’t so nice). Campfires and BBQs are allowed and even encouraged. Firewood is available to buy online when booking or directly on site.
This site is only a 15 minute drive from the attractions of Blackpool, The Pleasure Beach including Europe’s tallest roller coaster, the Pepsi Max Big One, Blackpool Tower & Dungeons, The Sea Life Centre, Sandcastle Waterpark, Blackpool Zoo, Madame Tussuads, and of course the Illuminations – in 2016 running from 2nd Sept – 6th Nov.
Or for those looking for something a little more on the quiet side, there are various local heritage walks and cycle routes around the Fylde coast, as well as a host of world-renowned golf courses and traditional country pubs. The nearest country pub is the Eagle and Child, only a short 20 minute walk from the site (or 2 minute drive).
