Alan Rogers Review

Wilcocks Farm Site is a spacious, landscaped site near the pretty village of Rivington on the edge of the West Pennine Moors. Situated between Rivington Country Park and a trio of beautiful reservoirs, the secluded farm keeps sheep, cattle, Welsumer hens and pigmy goats. There are also stables for local horse owners. With views up onto Winter Hill and down over the West Lancashire Coastal Plains you can enjoy the tranquil location in the heart of Lancashire. Wilcocks Farm Site has proudly been nominated for 'The Chorley Smile Green Award' in recognition of their approach to sustainable power and low usage equipment - their wind turbine provides power for the whole site and farm. Just 10 minutes from the M61 or the M65 this fabulous family run site provides the perfect base for exploring the whole of the North West. 22 hard standing pitches with electricity supply to all.

Positioned in the heart of Lancashire, Wilcocks Farm is the perfect base for a weekend away or a long stay exploring the North West. The village of Horwich is 5 minutes from the site offering shops, several excellent restaurants and a leisure centre. Middlebrook Retail Park, the home of Bolton Wanderers, a host of brand name shops and 2 supermarkets are less than 10 minutes away. Additionally, the towns of Bolton, Chorley and Wigan are all within 20 minutes’ drive. A trip to the seaside at Southport, Blackpool or Morecambe and the Lake District is just an hour away.
