I think that is the beauty of staying there Jim, if the weather is bad you can still stop in for the day and it's almost like being at home.

Just in case anyone is still requiring accommodation for the forumate meet up in June .........here are the current rates for Travelodge Burton M6 Northbound which is 2 or 3 miles north past the junction for Carnforth . (advanced booking, no refund rate) . It is only ten minute drive to Leghton Moss and although this service area is on M6 you can nip out (legally !) on the quicker back route towards Silverdale without having to rejoin the motorway. There is Costa Coffee/Burger King/Gregs Bakers/WH Smith on site and you get 20% discount off at all these if you show your travelodge key ! Marks and Spencer food outlet is also there but no discount. .
I have stayed at this travelodge three or four times and it is clean, albeit simple but comfortable accommodation, also quiet - especially if you ask for room at the rear. I chose the 4 cheapest nights to show you as an example. .
Example: Room type: Family room
Sun 23rd Jun 19 £26.00 Mon 24th Jun 19 £28.00 Tue 25th Jun 19 £34.00 Wed 26th Jun 19 £34.00

Just bumping this post up now that the forumate meeting up at Leighton Moss is looming ! If anyone else wants to join the happy get-together I just checked out prices for the Travelodge (Burton M6 North) which is only ten minute drive from LM reserve. Prices now as follows: Fri 21st Jun 19 £51.00 Sat 22nd Jun 19 £61.00 Sun 23rd Jun 19 £36.00 Mon 24th Jun 19 £39.00 Tue 25th Jun 19 £48.00 Wed 26th Jun 19 £48.00 Thu 27th Jun 19 £44.00 We will be arriving in Silverdale for one week from Friday 21st June - Friday 28th June but staying in a cottage around the corner from LM. Out of interest, the cottage adjoining ours (Avocet), which is one minute walk from LM is currently still available for 4 nights from Mon 24 Jun - Fri 28 June................. for £411 which is a pretty good price as it is 3 bedroom. Hope more of you can make it to the friendly meet up, it's usually a lot of fun ……….if you don't mind listening to some Yorkshire banter LOL !!!
I'll ignore that last bit... I should be on site for around 10:30 on Friday 21st and leaving for home Thursday morning...I wont be stopping on site all the time LOL. That £411 isn't a bad price Hazel especially with you being next door breakfast and evening meal will be included in that price.
