Our facilities

The caravan park comprises a main hard-standing rally area which provides accommodation for approximately 45 caravans and their towing vehicles. Our certified site is away from the rally area, where well drained land has been covered with stone to provide hard standing for a further units as well as a large grassed area ideal for tents.

Easy access to the CS and rally field is via a double gate width opening, and services comprise drinking water taps and separate chemical toilet emptying points. Ladies and Gents toilets are available within the club premises with 24 hour access for campers via a keypad door. A number of Electric Hook-Up points are available in both the CS and rally field.

All of the Club’s facilities are available to campers through our special campers membership which costs only £1. There is a small meeting room which accommodates about 30 people, an ideal private facility for smaller parties. The club also has a pleasant function room with a stage, high quality dance floor, and audio equipment, all of which are available for any social event free of charge to campers. In addition there is a small kitchen with electric ovens and microwaves. This proves very popular at supper time for heating pies, hotpot etc. To the rear of the Club building and adjacent to the caravan area is a large, well kept, bowling green. A separate additional green fee may apply for crown green bowling. In the summer months enjoy our suntrap patio which is an ideal spot for your barbecue.

Why bring your caravan or camper to the club?

We cater for both rallies and those on the lookout for overnight stops - with the close proximity of the motorway junctions the club is an ideal location for a stopover for one night or many.

As well as our excellent social and sporting facilities, we have good provision for caravans and campers, whether you are staying for just one night or for a week. We have a substantial level hard standing area with 6 and 10 amp electric hook ups available (depending on location). A centrally located water and waste point is provided. Toilet facilities are available on the site 24 hours a day.

All visitors have full access to the club facilities and children are welcomed in the bar and patio area. Well behaved dogs on leads are also welcome on the site and in the club.

Group bookings welcome. We stage a number of large events each year including a bikers rally, caravan club AGMs, and of course our Beer and Sausage festival. Tents are also welcome at the club. Please contact us to book in.

Our location

The Club is located in the Old Whittingham Hospital Grounds next to the beautiful villages of Whittingham and Goosnargh. Access to the club is via a private tarmac road leading from the B5269. This peaceful rural location is only 20 minutes from Preston City centre, and only minutes from the A6 and M6 with direct links to Lancaster (30 mins), Blackpool (40 mins) and the lake district (60 mins).

Regular buses are available at the end of the lane towards both Preston and Longridge with regular onward connections to Blackburn, Whalley and Clitheroe. Several local taxi services are available.

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. There 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 back drop to our village. This is 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.
