A little 2 night break away saw myself and family members take two motorhomes and head north to the seaside town of Blackpool to stay at High Bank Farm.
About the Site
High Bank Farm is a small independent camp site in Hardhorn, Poulton le Fylde,
The site is accessed along the B5266 just North of the M55 motorway. Care should be taken on which route you approach from though. We approached from the direction of Station Road only to be confronted with a low bridge. The Bridge has a 3m or 10ft Height limit and although most will be able to pass under it, as we did, it’s a close call.
The site is located in Hardhorn, off Fairfield Road. The entrance has two stone gate posts as you enter just off the road and looks like a residential driveway, meaning you’ll need to make sure you have enough room for the backswing or overhang on the vehicle.
On arrival we pulled in and spoke to the owners. The campsite is in effect at the back of the owners house. The owner was friendly and welcoming and told us which pitch they’d allocated.
The site has the capacity to take touring Caravans and motorhomes and a number of the caravans were seasonal pitches.
The pitches were all grass and were of a reasonable size. They were reasonably level and had the electric hookup point close by.
The toilet and shower facility were basic but clean. In addition there was a washing up area for dishes. A chemical toilet emptying point was also available.

The cost for the pitch was £10 per unit and £2 per person and £3 for electric hookup making a total of £15 per night for 1 person and a motorhome.
Motorhome Monkey thoughts
This site wasn’t too far from Blackpool and suited our needs for a little mini break. It was basic but functional. I wouldn’t usually stay on sites that don’t have hard standing but the weather was fine so I made the exception. With a lack of shops, pubs or visitor attractions within easy walking distance Would I return here again? Probably not but that’s not detrimental to the site, if you needed an overnight stop then this is possibly one to consider!
