(20) Camping Pod near Lake

Located in: Preston »
Stanley Villa Farm is set within the beautiful countryside a short drive from the famous seaside resort of Blackpool, Lancashire. Stanley Villa Farm offers camping accommodation in a magical setting with a focus on fun and relaxation.

Our cosy pods are designed to help you get back to nature. At Stanley Villa Farm, we want you to be able to spend quality time with your friends and family, relax by the campfire, fish on the lake and simply switch off, surrounded by unspoilt nature.


We have a total of 24 Cosy Camping Pods – all the same size. Each comes with 2 high- quality single beds and mattresses to ensure a comfortable night’s sleep. The beds can be converted into a double, and if they’re placed in an L shape, you can fit a double airbed in too.

The Pods sleep a maximum of two adults (max) and up to two children.
So, whether you're coming as friends, as a couple or a family all you need is your own bedding (pillow, sheets, duvet - or sleeping bag if you want that real camping authenticity! Asingle mattress on each pod bed is provided.

We also suggest bringing additional airbeds/roll mats for children as these are not provided.

All our Pods are fully insulated so they are warm, however, we provide hot water bottles free of charge which you can borrow. Each Pod also comes with coat hooks and battery powered lights.


Our Pods don’t have electricity so it’s an authentic camping experience. However, if you do need to charge phones or plug in your hairdryer, there is power available in the nearby Lakeside Lodge.

Pods come with a firepit and wood can be purchased on site. Many of our guests enjoy cooking up a BBQ and toasting marshmallows over an open fire.

We have disposable BBQs available on request for an additional fee.


For guests with dogs, a per night surcharge applies - we’ll discuss this with you after booking. Please note that all dogs on site must be well behaved, always be picked up after, and never be left unattended in the pods.


The Pods do not have en-suite facilities, however, on-site in our Lakeside Lodge we have 5 bathrooms, 3 with wetroom facilities. So the whole family can stay comfortable, whether it's been a day of fishing on the lake or playing games on the green.

All bookings include 24hr access to the beautiful Lakeside Lodge which has a kitchen that includes free teas, coffees and hot chocolates! (just bring your own milk). We also have mugs, glasses, spoons, cutlery, a kettle, microwave, toaster, 2 x tall fridge/freezers, three wet rooms with toilets/ 24hr hot showers, and a large common room with tables/chairs/ board games. Power sockets are available in the lodge should you need to charge your phone or dry your hair.


We have a large grassed play area in front of the Pods where children can run around and play - all whilst you can sit outside your pod and keep an eye on them.

We also have a ‘Mini Play-Pod’ on site - this is a big hit with younger guests as it includes an assortment of toys such as footballs, badminton nets/rackets, a rounders’ set. There are also plenty of board games available in the main lodge for when the weather isn’t so nice.

Fishing on the lake is available seasonally for an additional fee. You can book this on arrival. We request that you bring your own fishing gear.


We’re a self-catering style site with the majority of our guests choosing to cook on the disposable BBQs (additional charge or bring your own). We do have plates, mugs, glasses, and cutlery available, but most guests prefer to bring their own.

Washing up liquid, cloths, and tea towels are all provided for you. Tea, coffee and hot chocolates are also provided as well – all you need is your own milk.

Our local pub, The Eagle offers a fantastic selection of traditional pub grub. Newly refurbished for 2019 and better than ever!

There’s a superb Indian Restaurant nearby The Ashiana, specialising in traditional Bangladeshi dishes. Open till late every night – eat in or collection. If you like spicy we highly recommend the Handy Masala!

Bradleys Sports Bar is just a short (5 mins) drive away and is based in the AFC Fylde Football Stadium. You'll never miss a game again. The pies and wings are highly recommended here!

There are also a range of dining options available in Lytham, approx 15 mins drive away Our recommendations include; ‘Chu’s’ for Chinese, The Ship and Royal for a burger and Sky Sports on a Saturday afternoon, or Spago / Gusto for a fine dining experience. There’s also a range of great pubs and bars with a vibrant atmosphere every Friday & Saturday including the Taps, the first port of call for any real ale fan.


We’re only a 15 minute drive to the attractions of Blackpool; The Pleasure Beach including Europe’s tallest rollercoaster, the Pepsi Max Big One, Blackpool Tower & Dungeons, The Sea Life Centre, Sandcastle Waterpark, Blackpool Zoo, Madame Tussauds, and of course the Illuminations – In 2019 they are running from 30th August – 3rd November.

Or for those looking for something a little more on the quiet side, there are various local heritage walks and cycle routes around the Fylde coast, as well as traditional country pubs.

The Forest of Bowland, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a beautiful stretch of rugged, unspoilt countryside covering 312 square miles of rural Lancashire and adjacent Yorkshire. Perfect for gentle walks, mountain biking, bird watching and scenic picnics.
