Hi We spent 2 days last week at Charity Farm at Wrightington which is a couple of mile off the M6 north of Wigan.
It is a large equestrian centre but has 4 pools with excellant fishing, Carp up to 21 lb and I caught about 20 Tench all between 2 and 3 lb plus the usual Roach, Chub and Perch,
Unfortunately most of the pitches on the caravan site are taken with long stay vans so at most they have 6 spare, they are mostly hard standing all with electric. Fees are £10 a night inc elecy. Toilets are nothing to write home about, 2 WC's each with sinks and one shower each, basic but clean.
There is no shop on site and none in the immediate area but there are some good walks onsite around the cross country course which goes through a bluebell wood.
Very good for fishing with a very friendly owner.

Zappy my partner lives in Newcastle-under-lyme so I spend some time over there, do you know of any sites/fishing local to that area? Cheers! :)
The only one I know is:Here
I have fished it but not stayed there with the van but I can tell you it is good and there is an adult section if you require it. Toilets and showers are clean but on the small side.
It may be too far away for as it is at penkridge in Staffordshire.

Regards,

Graham

Charity Farm

Well I spent the weekend there (Charity Farm) and it was very nice, as said earlier not many free pitches so booking is recommended. Friendly and quiet, fishing looks v good did not try myself but quite a lot of anglers there catching, had a meal at the Mulberry Tree Restaurant (approx 1 mile away) it was excellent :D also the local pub just outside the site entrance was good and very welcoming. £30 for two nights I will be returning with fishing tackle next time :)
