and then waking up to this…
Red Bank Farm campsite is sandwiched between Morecambe Bay and stunningly beautiful Lancashire countryside. It’s a working organic farm, so we shared our camping field (one of two) with tractors and a cowshed, and the other field had chickens wandering around. The facilities here are good: a new shower and toilet block with free hot showers, a very nice cafe with large home made cakes, and a little pets corner with lambs, piglets, goats, chickens and a huge rabbit.
You can take your car right onto the camping field, which is a plus when you’re on your own with kids, as I was. There are no marked pitches so you simply choose your spot – I couldn’t resist setting up with a sea view to make the most of the amazing sunset. We wondered down to the beach but only ventured to the edge – this is Morecambe Bay, famous for its swift tides and sinking sands.
The benefit of this location though, apart from its beauty, is the vast array of birdlife. The only noise here, apart from the odd train speeding along the nearby line every now and again, was from the huge variety of birds flitting around the trees and sharing the hedgerows with a kaleidoscope of butterflies.
I couldn’t fault Red Bank Farm at all; at £6 per adult and £3 per child per night for simply amazing scenery, I would recommend it to anyone looking for campsites in Lancashire.
