Voted number 1 caravan park in the UK 2015 & 2016 by the readers of Caravan Sitefinder
The Smithy Leisure Park is a quiet and peaceful park situated just outside the market town of Garstang. The Smithy is surrounded by the beautiful Lancaster to Preston canal and also boasts its own fishing lake and all-weather bowling green. The rest of the park is nestled in the open countryside with views across the Trough of Bowland.
The park has a mixture of residential lodges and holiday homes – a total of 145 pitches all together. The Smithy is more than just a caravan or leisure park – it is its own community. Two secure electric barriers and 24-hour CCTV provide an assurance of safety. All pitches have their own private driveways, gardens, concrete bases, B.T telephone points and broadband, as well as Sky TV.
The park is also home to our head office and adjacent to our smaller, neighbouring park, Wharf Cottage.

This park is a very relaxing place to be it has bowling on its very own lake!!! OMG, and than the canal beside the park is what Lee is to Lancaster. It is very good for middle aged people and I visited it in 1998 and it was very very appalling and then I went back in 2008 and it was A!! And im thinking of buying a caravan in a year or to. It is a pleasure to Mr and Mrs Mccarthy. It is spot on. You could't ask for more than that now could you next to the canal 2 miles from Garstang and 5 miles not even that to the great city of Lancaster Send a greeting to the owner for me. Many thanks.
