If you are new to the area then let us guide you with some ideas for your stay at Wilson House Holiday Park! There are so many great things to do and amazing places to explore within a short distance, you'll be able to choose from a huge range of activities. We've put together some ideas for a three day stay with us.
Start your break by exploring near to Wilson House Holiday Park. We are surrounded by gorgeous countryside and plenty of gems. In the morning you could visit the Pilling Pottery - only ten minutes drive from the camp to see the beautiful work being made and to buy your own. The Pilling Pottery is open Monday - Friday from 9-5.30.
In the afternoon you could visit the market town of Garstang, again only ten minutes drive from the park. There are plenty of fun things to do in Garstang and Trip Advisor has plenty of ideas here. You can do a spot of shopping or enjoy a nice lunch or tea in any of the restaurants or cafes on offer.
In the evening, you could take a trip into Garstang and sample some of their famous restaurants and pubs. If you fancy somewhere with a bit more night life Poulton is juts the place for you with Restaurants, cocktail bars and has a great atmosphere
Day Two of your holiday and we would recommend a day trip to iconic Blackpool. There is so much to enjoy in Blackpool from the Tower to the Pleasure Beach, shopping, restaurants and the sea side, the pleasure carpet, the adventure golf, the zoo - it's only half an hour to Blackpool from the holiday park and there's loads to choose from.
The Visit Blackpool websiteis a great resource to help plan your day out so that you can get the most out of your time.
The Lake District is just under an hour from the Wilson House Holiday Park and there is an amazing amount on offer to do. If you are a walker, then there is a lot to choose from and you can get great advice from the Lake District National Park website which gives you loads of options for routes and advice.
If you enjoy museums, then Hilltop, the house that Beatrix Potter lived in, is definitely worth a visit and you can enjoy the unchanged surroundings where Potter created and wrote her famous stories about Peter Rabbit and friends. You can find out more about Beatrix Potter's house here. If you'd prefer something more active then the Brockholes Adventure Park is a great place to challenge yourself with the tree top walk and enjoy the stunning views across Lake Windermere from the cafe. You can find out more about it and book here.
There are many lovely places to eat and drink in Windermere so a wander around the centre of town is a great experience and there are gift shops and cafes galore. Find out more about the options here: Top cafes and restaurants in Windermere.
If you'd like to take a boat trip across the Lake, it's definitely worth it, but do remember to wrap up warm as it's often chilly out on the Lake! You can find out more about the boat trips and book here.
“Weather was awful so lounge with tv & honesty bar, complimentary tea & coffee was amazing. Staff were really friendly & helpful. The site was well kept & clean. Dog exercise field liked by our Beagle. Electric, water & drainage on pitch. Shower block, toilets & washing up areas high standard. Close to bright lights of Blackpool or a day around the lakes. Ten out of ten!”
“Staff were lovely... peace and quiet... very clean facilities, and loved the honesty bar, which wasn’t expensive, you can also take your own drinks and snacks if you prefer .. can’t wait to visit again!”
“Lovely welcome, very helpful and friendly, lovely accommodation, clean, and especially the addition of a gas bbq on the decking which we’ve never had before, even though it was November we were able to use it. Hot tub lovely and warm. Would definitely stay again.”
