The Camping

Set just a 15-minute drive from the famous seaside resort of Blackpool, Stanley Villa Farm Camping invites holidaymakers to enjoy a glamping experience in the peaceful surroundings of the Lancashire countryside. Guests can make most of the walking paths and nature trails around, while the property’s lake and its wildlife provide picturesque scenery and fishing opportunities.

Insulated camping pods are kitted out with two beds, mattresses, battery-powered lights, and coat hooks. To complement a genuine camping experience with campfires and outdoor cooking, every pod boasts its own fire pit and barbecue. Power sockets, kitchen facilities and utensils, as well as toilets and hot showers can be found at the Lakeside Lodge which also features a large common room.

Free fly fishing included with the stay - equipment and licence needed.

Nearby

Bordered by Liverpool and Manchester, Lancashire is on the doorstep of the Lake District National Park and Yorkshire Dales National Park, making it possible for globetrotters to experience both the urban and the outdoor tourist, sports and entertainment opportunities of North West England.

Blackpool Pleasure Beach is ideal for travellers who want to soak up in the sun of northern England, whereas the outdoorsy can relish the thrill of a hike or of a memorable snap in West Pennine Moors, Pendle Hill or of WWT Martin Mere. More to explore lies at travellers’ feet: Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty such as Arnside and Silverdale with its Leighton Moss RSPB reserve, and Forest of Bowland.

It’s close to Blackpool if you want to do the attractions but far enough out to be a peaceful site.Site is run by a lovely chap who is always helpful.Huts are basic just two beds and light.They come with a fire pit so you can buy firewood and toast marshmallows.There are toilets and showers in the main hut.You can bbq or order in takeaway.Its just a couple of minutes drive to the nearest Greggs and subway.Great grass area for kids to play.Best if the weather is dry. I’ve always stayedin summer for just two nights at a time


You certainly can't beat Takeaways, Greggs and Subway for that authentic camping experience.

Why?



Yeah... I know. Some love this, but to me personally it's paying 30 quid a night to sleep in someone else's shed.
Not voted, the fact that it doesn't appeal to me doesn't make it cold. . .
Love the faux snobs out on HUKD as though they would be staying at the Dorchester over half term.

I used to regularly stay at decent hotels with work, but after a while they are all just soulless roofs over your head. This actually looks interesting and would be worth a go for a night or two!
I live round here and Glamping probably is a poor description of what you'll get. What you do get though is somewhere on the run in to Blackpool for a budget price. As someone said, it's a campsite without having to lug a tent around; it's not the Hilton but it's somewhere you can get dry accommodation and bond as a family. if you don't like the idea of camping, yes, you'll hate it!

Well if you don’t have a tent you probably don’t have all the camping equipment either. So you can just nip on to Greggs for porridge and bacon buttys for breakfast.

I go so kids can experience outdoor camping type holiday without me having the agro of figuring out how to put up a tent buying all the kit required.

I know we’ll have somewhere warm and dry to sleep and the kids love a campfire in the evening.

But yes you could get the same experience in someone’s shed and popping inside their house to use the toilet and shower
Really odd that they do not provide any picture of inside the pod. I even found this
no inside view. As if they were trying to hide something...

there's quite a lot of people in London offering exactly that, very cheap & popular with some of our European friends

33440593-mfRvZ.jpgOr push them both to the corner and put a double air bed down
Sleeping in a shed , nowt glamorous about that
Glamping and Blackpool don't seem to be a good match.

Alex who runs it is lovely. The communal room which anyone can use has about 4 shower /loo rooms from what I can remember and free tea and coffee, sofas, plug sockets in the floor so be careful if it's wet. Be warned it says they are insulated but they are COLD at night especially in spring. Good if you want the camping experience with a bed. If you are used to camping though go for it. It's by a fishing lake which is very pretty.
Better to get a b&b in Blackpool

Stayed there 2 nights, left a day early, the guy is OK and refunded us however the toilets and showers were filthy, the showers ran over the rubbish bin and toilet so if anyone missed, you were standing in it and it was very slow draining, the floor is the shower pan by the way.
33442662-gcCF6.jpg the fishing lake was being used by someone on a jet ski, the main building was a mess and the dogs running around and drunken people outside just about finished us off. there is a very good reason it is that price. It isn't glamping, it is a sink estate of huts rather than houses. Free is too much. Enjoy. **Edit* Forgot to mention the very poor lighting in the cabin, the upside was you couldn't see the surrounds.

Faux snob - excellent term to describe many forum personas (not just this site!).

Ditto on this being different and interesting, particularly for the kids.

Faux snobs or just people who expect a certain level of cleanliness and peace making comment backed up by visiting, experiencing 1st hand and photos? there is a world of difference, we are actually hardened campers, been doing it for years, faux snobs don't do that, it was only the second place in decades we walked out of, so much for your sweeping, unqualified generalisations.

A shed costs a few hundred quid, a decent camping pod costs a few thousand. There is a bit of a difference in construction quality.

Camping in a tent is just paying to sleep in a field covered by a canvas sheet but it hasn't stopped hundreds of thousands of people from enjoying it.

Some people will get it, others will be happier with a week in Spain and a free bar (I like both equally).

I don't like camping. I don't like Spain.
I guess I only like my house.^^

Wasn't a sweeping statement.. but was about those slating it without having been there.. by all means it's open to fair criticism such as yours. But faux snobbery about sleeping in someone's shed makes me laugh.
Not hot or cold. FYI 4 of us stayed 3 nights at the Travelodge at Lytham St Annes last August for a whopping £66 in total. No parking but lots of free on street parking. Tons of decent restaurants on the main street and surrounding area and the beach/prom. And free wifi from the M&S Food Store below us!
