Red Bank Farm, in Bolton le Sands, near Carnforth, was named best small campsite at this year’s AA Camping and Caravan Awards.

The AA inspector’s verdict said: “The gently sloping grassy field with mature hedges at Red Bank Farm is right on the sea shore and set beside a RSPB reserve. This farm site has smart toilet facilities, a superb view across Morecambe Bay to the distant Lake District hills, and is popular with tenters. Archers Café is delightful, serving a good range of cooked food, including home-reared marsh lamb dishes, and has a new timbered alfresco eating area.”

Returning for the first time since 2019, the Caravan and Camping Awards celebrate those camping and caravan sites offering guests the most comfortable and welcoming stays in the UK.
