Watkinsons Farm Glamping

A peaceful, small scale glamping site in West Lancashire with woods, meadows and endless space to explore.

A petite bell tent glamping site, with just 4 pre-pitched, pre-furnished beauties ideal for those looking for a quiet escape.  Each tent is pitched on a flat, wooden platform, with outdoor seating and a campfire pit, while inside there are double beds, lanterns, bean bags and a box of cooking utensils with everything you could possibly need. The 5m bell tents also have a small log burning stove inside for cooler evenings or the morning cuppa.

The all-you-need comforts go hand in hand with a traditional camping set-up. The site is completely off-grid and has a genuine camping atmosphere – think compost toilets, gas-powered showers, late night campfires and starry nights – but for those in need of a good pillow and a sound night's sleep, the farm is ideal.  Small-scale and low key, this is a place where you can chat to the owners rather than members of campsite staff and get first hand recommendations on the local area.

Whether it’s heading east into the hills, west to the beach or out to one of the surrounding cities, there’s certainly plenty to do. A walk along the Leeds Liverpool Canal is a fantastic place to start. There are several good pubs on the waterside and the tow path has loads of space if you want to bring a bike along for a family cycle. Pedal back towards Ormskirk, meanwhile, and you can reward yourself with a cool drink and some freshly baked gingerbread. The town is, apparently, the birth place of the quintessential English biscuit and there are plenty of bakeries where you can find the tasty treat. More than one are also home to the ‘very first original recipe’.  You'll need your detective skills to work out who's telling the truth.... and a good appetite.
