"A tranquil lakeside glampsite just 15 minutes from Blackpool?" you ask incredulously. No dear camper, we're not a few tent pegs short of a full set. The Lancashire Fylde is an alluvial peninsula bounded by the Bowland hills to the east, the Irish Sea to the west, Morecambe Bay to the north and the Ribble estuary to the south. Once harvested for peat by the locals, the land is incredibly nutrient rich and today, a wide variety of flora and fauna abounds. It is here that the industrious folks from Stanley Villa Farm have been busy creating their brand new Camping Bugs site.
The colourful purpose built 'bugs' are fully insulated and equipped (though you'll need to bring your own bedding). When your little ones have tired themselves out exploring the sprawling fields (the size of 4 football fields!), they'll love retiring to their den-like digs for the weekend. The communal Lakeside Lodge has everything you need for a hassle-free stay including washing and cooking facilities, plus a large common room.
The centrepiece of the site is the 5 acre man-made lake. The Flyde Trout Fishery welcomes all levels of anglers to fish the various breeds of trout. It’s also 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) congregating to sup from its trout-inhabited waters.
While not as wild as the fells of neighbouring Cumbria and a touch too far inland to enjoy coastal views, this part of the north-west has its own unique charm. Moreover, it's ideally placed for a bit of rural relaxation.
