Smithson Farm

Small family run glamping, camping and caravan park set on 1.2 acres of level land on the outskirts of Burnley in the Hamlet of Reedley Hallows in the Heart of Pendle Witch Country and within easy reach of the villages of Barley, Newchurch in Pendle, Roughlee and Barrowford.

By car it is less than an hour from Manchester , Leeds , the Yorkshire Dales, The Forest of Bowland, Ribble Valley and the Coastal resorts of Blackpool and Southport and it is only a few miles from the famous Boundary Mill Shopping Outlet, Oswaldtwistle Mills and within walking distance of Barden Mill and Marina. Walkers have easy access to The Pendle Witch Trails, The Laund Booth Circular, The Bronte Way and The Leeds Liverpool Canal towpath.

For tourers and motorhomes the site is hard standing with metered electric hookups (so you only pay for what you use). Tents have a well cared for grassed area. 

Also available are two luxuriously appointed Pods, craftsman built to the highest standards using Siberian Larch and insulated and sound proofed throughout, for all year round use. For two adults only, they provide spacious accommodation consisting of one main room and a small toilet room. The main area has a beautiful oak double bed with a sumptuous memory foam mattress and comes complete with bedding, luxury embroidered bath robes and complimentary slippers. There is a comfy settee in one pod and two equally comfortable chairs in the other both have coffee tables and lamps. All the bedding, and soft furnishings are co-ordinated. There are TVs in the pods, tea & coffee making facilities, a fridge for those must have bottles of wine & beer. and a heater in case it gets chilly in the evening. Lighting in the pods is by LED down lighters and this is also a feature of the outside decked area, where there is a box for outdoor shoes or boots and where you can sit on a late summer evening and watch the stars and enjoy a glass of wine straight from the fridge.

A magnificent Shepherd’s Hut which has been designed for two adults and hand built is available on site. This has everything you need for a countryside break,including all bedding and towels, so all you need to take are your clothes and tooth brush. The Shepherds Hut which sleeps two adults has it own outside table and chairs as well as a gas barbecue. it has a full oven, a fridge,hot water, a TV and a superb bed settee with a quality memory foam mattress. 

There are excellent toilet and shower facilities and a cafe on site which serves breakfast from 8am and then lunches, snacks and evening meals as required. They do all our own baking, and make jams and chutneys from the fruit grown in the orchard on the site, and these are on sale in the cafe.

If you wish to dine off site there are many quality restaurants and pubs serving excellent food just a few minutes drive away, some of them very family friendly with indoor and outdoor play areas and children's menus.

Small family groups are welcome and the children can enjoy feeding the many rescue animals on the farm including eight Shetland Ponies and two African Grey Parrots (these two talk incessantly) and children are encouraged to both pet and feed the animals.

For Culture Vultures they have an onsite Coal Mining Museum with a collection of memorabilia that would rival the National, this was set up by us as the site is where in the early 1900s,Woodend Colliery stood and now we honour the men who toiled underground to power a Nation and whose efforts have largely been forgotten, and so quite often Miners will call in to see us and always have a tale to tell especially to the children. We attract guests from as far afield as Saudi Arabia, Russia, Australia and most of Europe as well as people from within a 10 mile radius
