Luxury Glamping Experience…

Sandvilla Stays is located just outside the village of Cockerham and the village sits on the coastal planes south of Lancaster where the River Lune meets the Irish Sea.

We are on the doorstep to The Lake District and ideally situated for exploring the Fylde Coast and Yorkshire Dales. The Lancashire coastal way passes through Cockerham hosting great walks and cycle routes.

On our smallholding we have alpacas, sheep and chickens and guests are welcome to help feed them.

Our small glamping site is made up of 3 hard standing pitches and 3 glamping units. Our pitches are fully serviced and exclusively for Camping and Caravanning Club Members (yearly membership from £45 – see here for details).

We have 3 unique glamping experiences for you and your families, each unit is set within its own private area and all units have electric, heating, private toilets/showers and much more.

You might want to get back to nature in our Scandinavian style grill hut, which hosts an indoor fire pit for cooking and entertaining.

Or for a little bit more luxury book into one of our 2 pods and enjoy an outdoor hot bath looking out at the alpacas.

With a great communal playing space in our field for the children we hope you can sit back relax and enjoy switching off.
