Claylands Park, in Garstang, has been announced as one of the finalists in this years Lancashire Tourism Awards.

The park has been short listed for the award for best holiday park and holiday village and is up against Bay View Holiday Park, in Carnforth, and Ribblesdale Park, in Gisburn.

The park was acquired by Fred and Margaret Robinson in 1959 and started out as a small 14 acre farm set on the banks of the River Wyre overlooking the Trough of Bowland.

Over the years the business has developed from a small caravan site to a multi-award winning holiday park and is today one of the few remaining parks to offer all forms of caravanning and camping, including holiday homes, touring caravans and tent pitches.

Andrew Brewer, from Claylands, said:“We are delighted to be nominated for this prestigious award.

“Our guests and visitors are always at the very heart of what we do and not only do we listen carefully to our customers and develop the park to meet their aspirations but we also take into account the needs of local people, and the local economy.

“As a true Lancashire family business, we are so very keen to share the area we love with our visitors.”

The awards ceremony will take place on November 6 at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom.
