Willowgrove Leisure Park and Fishery is a peaceful, secure and award winning privately owned park, built around a fully stocked five-acre fishing lake and an island bird sanctuary. Situated in the Wyre Valley on the Fylde Coast, Willowgrove is close to the shops and facilities of Knott End-On-Sea, and only 10 minutes drive from the legendary attractions of Blackpool. For lovers of the countryside, the scenery of the beautiful Lake District and the stunning Trough of Bowland, are just an hour away.

With a 52-week license, Willowgrove is the perfect place to retire amongst a friendly community of like-minded people, who enjoy the traditional British way of life, all year round. The Barton family takes great pride in ensuring that Willowgrove is maintained to the highest standards. The park is kept meticulously clean and tidy by the full time gardeners and maintenance team. On-site amenities include a brand new launderette, free minibus service and a bowling green.
The reception at Willowgrove is manned every day during office hours and an experienced warden is on call to provide 24 hour cover for any emergencies. The owners of the Barton Homes Group, Charles Barton Senior and Charlie Barton Junior, personally visit the park on a daily basis to ensure that everything is up to standard and that everyone is happy.

With pre owned holiday caravans starting from only £18,995, we have a holiday home to suit all specifications and budgets.

When complete, our new development, Kingfisher Drive will feature high spec, luxury leisure caravans directly overlooking the lake and island bird sanctuary.

“At Barton Park Homes, you are one of the family and we look forward to welcoming you.”

Charlie Barton Junior - Managing Director

Park Life

Willowgrove Leisure Park and Fishery in Lancashire is designed specifically to match the lifestyle needs of a semi-retired and retired community.

The park is protected by a barrier and password system after 5.00pm, and the 24-hour warden adds an extra dimension of reassurance for owners. The community at Willowgrove in Lancashire can also call on the skills and expertise of Team Barton – the park’s on-site trade professionals.

Residents have full access to the park’s new on-site launderette which is fitted with modern appliances and will soon be able to enjoy a brand new bowling green and pavilion, set for completion in 2015.

Pleasant days can be whiled away at the golf club, local social clubs or bowling greens. Alternatively, the seafront at Knott End looks out across the beach with views of the spectacular Lakeland Hills and it is only a short ferry ride to Fleetwood. In addition, a free minibus service runs weekly excursions to popular destinations. Trips further afield are also organised to destinations such as the Trafford Centre and to The Races.

The pride of the park is a five-acre CEFAS registered fishing lake, a haven for wildlife and migrating birds. The lake is stocked with over 2,000 fish including Carp, Mira Carp, Tench and many other species, all of differing size and weight. Not surprisingly, fishing competitions are a regular feature of life at Willowgrove.
