Glenfield Leisure Park provides an ideal base from which to tour the surrounding area. The leisure park nestles in unspoilt countryside, within easy reach of Blackpool, Morecambe, and the smaller Fylde coast resorts, historic Lancaster and the Forest of Bowland. The Lake District is only one hour's drive away offering hiking, sailing and mountaineering.
The picturesque and well kept village of Pilling is within easy walking distance of the park. A small children's play area is available there. A Post Office and local stores in and around the village cater for most household needs. A visit to the famous Pilling Pottery is worthwhile as well as the excellent cuisine of nearby restaurants and country pubs. The Lancashire Coastal Way runs just to the north of the village and offers ample opportunities from which to view the local countryside with views to the Lake District across Morecambe Bay.
The countryside offers many countryside and coastal footpaths with adjoining lanes that allow ample opportunity for walking and cycling. The area is very popular with birdwatchers and fishermen, whilst the more athletic will find most sports facilities available from the nearby leisure centres at Garstang, Lancaster and Preston.
