This meet will involve vans being parked close together, this is the only way we can get 40 vans parked on the campsite, if you are not happy with this please do not attend. Thank you

The camp is for 5 nights, most of the pitches are on hardstanding, however small vans may be parked on grass but we do have towing facilities if required . The venue is less than 10 minutes off the M6 motorway

There are also 20 EHU points, these are only 5 AMP so only kettles, fridges, charging, NOT HEATING, these are only £3 per night so please remember this if you try to overload it and it keeps tripping, also if you want this option let me know when booking, these come on a first come first served basis

Sorry all EHU places have been allocated now,however if you have a long lead and a splitter then depending on how we route the cables there could be a slight possibility some more points become available but WE CANNOT GUARANTEE everyone from number 30 on the list will get this option

There is a large clubhouse on-site with snooker and pool tables also a tv room and the bar is open every night and lunchtime at the weekend, the bar also serves food and real ale as well as a very large selection of beverages. THE CLUBHOUSE WILL BE OPEN DURING THE DAYTIME FOR US TO USE BUT THE BAR WILL NOT BE OPEN UNTIL THE EVENING TIME. We will organize some Quizzes and activities nearer the time

Dogs on leads are welcome on the entire site including the clubhouse, ALL dog mess must be cleaned up

There is access to Toilets, showers, freshwater, washing up point, rubbish disposal and Elsan point

Here is a link to the club site. http://www.whittinghamclub.com/

The price is £11 per unit per night, this is based on 40 vans attending. Please put your payment in a sealed envelope with your forum name and how many nights you are attending plus your fee for EHU if you have asked for this @ £3 per night , this will be collected on arrival

Sorry no Generators or firepits

Local amenities

Only a 5-minute walk from the club you can find a Post Office, grocery shop, fish and chip shop, hairdresser and traditional sweet shop. You can also find Goosnargh Tennis Club and the beautiful medieval church of St Mary's, dating from approximately 1281. They're also a wide range of excellent restaurants and pubs serving fine food in the immediate area, including the local specialities of Goosnargh duck, Goosnargh cakes, and famous local cheeses from Mrs Kirkham's, Blacksticks and Singletons. The famously haunted Chingle Hall is but a half-mile stroll across the fields.

Further afield (3 miles) is the delightful market town of Longridge – the gateway to the Ribble Valley, Clitheroe and beyond. Sainsbury’s, Booths and The Co-operative supermarkets can all be found in Longridge along with a host of specialist shops and a full range of takeaways, many of which will deliver to the site.

Exploring the area

The new City of Preston (7 miles) offers extensive shopping opportunities whilst Garstang (6 miles) is another “must-see” market town. Beacon Fell Country Park along with the Bleasdale Fells, form the backdrop to our village. This is a proper walking country easily reached (3 miles) by an extensive network of country lanes. Brock Bottoms (2 miles), on the way to Beacon Fell, offers leafy glades, cool clear pools and the gentle River Brock. This is a magic place where children can safely paddle, whilst your dog can swim in the deeper pools - an ideal picnic spot!

The Club is an ideal base for visiting local attractions such as the Roman camp at Ribchester, the ruins of the 14th Century Cistercian Abbey at Whalley and the famous Trough of Bowland whose lovely winding paths are popular with fell walkers and casual strollers alike.

If you would like to attend this venue please ask on this thread only stating your arrival day and how many nights you will be attending

MAX 40 pitches
