Lovely rural retreat but close to many amenities.

This review is for Park Fold Farm

Lovely rural retreat but close to many amenities. Just spent 2 nights at this lovely campsite. The site is no more than 10 minutes from our house but once pitched up we felt we could have been miles away. Sometimes its just nice to sit back and appreciate what you have in your own backyard :-) We were pitched on one of 3 hard standings at the top of the site near the barns and the views were terrific. The pitches also benefit from being drive through so getting setup was a doddle albeit on a bit of a downward slope. There are 2 more hard standings towards the bottom of the slope (not drive through) plus a small childrens play area. Toilets are in the same building as the on site gym and these were spotless. A bit of a walk to the chemical disposal but not too bad. Jumbles Reservoir is a short walk away and ideal for dog walking. Plenty of good pubs and restaurants close by. We will definitely return.

Friendly welcome then shown to our pitch. This was hard standing.

This review is for Park Fold Farm

Friendly welcome then shown to our pitch. This was hard standing. The hardstanding pitches are long and narrow so with a caravan I assume the car is intended to be left in front of the caravan rather than by the side as normal. Not a problem but a little unconventional. An awning would need to be pitched on the grass by the side. Water tap is easy to get close to with a motorhome. You could also drain waste water directly from the tank into a drain but it's not a full service point and you will need a drain hose. Toilets were open all night but a little bit of a track from the site round the farm buildings. They were clean. Only problem is the timer for the lights can go off while you are in them so take a torch at night. They are shared with a gym and I was a little surprised that they had not added a shower as well. Good mobile and TV reception. There is a pleasant short walk round the jumbles reservoir from the site and the local area has many other more strenuous walks over the local moors. It's also close to Bury and the East Lancs steam railway among other attractions.

We booked a hard standing and was asked if we had an awning.

This review is for Park Fold Farm

We booked a hard standing and was asked if we had an awning. We confirmed we had a porch awning. However the hard standing is too narrow and only accommodates the van itself. Even without an awning, you have to step out onto the grass/mud. The drainage is non existent and it is a total mud bath. We were disgusted. Our van needs to be cleaned from top to bottom. We have 2 dogs and 3 kids and every time we came in the van there was just mud everywhere. We read in reviews that they were really friendly. There was a man stood waiting for us on arrival (presuming owner). He wanted us to get out and walk all the way to our pitch first because he hadn't yet booked us in. When I handed him an envelope with our money and membership number on, he suddenly said we could drive the van straight to our pitch. I don't call this friendly, it's like we weren't trusted. This was our only contact. There is no light by the Elsan which was quite a trek from the pitch. I would not recommend this site in winter. The toilets although a trek from the van (round other side of the gym) were immaculate.
