2018 Calendar of Events
25th January 2018
2017 was a fantastic year for Moss Wood, with more events that we have had for several years! For 2018 we want to build on this success and do even more on site to make this season memorable for all of our guests.
The list here is not exhaustive as we will have more going on throughout the year, such as the RSPB running bug hunts and bird watches as they did last year. However, these are some of our bigger events scheduled in advance. We’d love to see you at as many of these as possible!
Saturday 10th March – Quiz Night @ Farm Yard Ales
A fun and friendly quiz to open the season! Taking place at Farm Yard Ales – our friendly neighbours – there will be drinks available from their selection brewed on site, as well as freshly made pizzas by local company Dough ‘N’ Co.
Saturday 24th March – Star Tours
A popular event from early in the 2017 season, Star Tours is making a return in 2018 with a local expert giving us a guided tour through the cosmos. While we would love a clear night, there will be a back up presentation inside if necessary!
Saturday 31st March – Easter Treasure Hunt
Another favourite from 2017 returning for 2018 – the Easter treasure hunt! A car-based hunt which will start and finish at Moss Wood, taking you on a tour of the local area and nearby attractions as you find the answers to a series of clues.
Saturday 7th April – Bat Walk
Last run at Moss Wood in September 2016, the Bat Walk will return in 2018! An expert will give us a brief introduction on the flying mammals – perhaps even with a few rescue bats in tow to enable you to have a close encounter with these elusive nighttime flyers – before taking us on a walk around the park with detectors to find our local bat population.
Saturday 21st April – Visit Pemberton Leisure*
Pemberton Leisure are our local holiday home manufacturers, making such fantastic modern static caravans as the Pemberton Lancaster. We have been invited to take a VIP tour of their home showgrounds and view any caravans recently rolled out of the factory floor – as fresh as they come!
Saturday 5th May – Photography Tutorial*
Local photography experts will be visiting Moss Wood to dazzle us with some of their best work – and also to give us some helpful tips on how to get the best photos! Suitable for all abilities.
Saturday 12th May – Moss Wood Open Day
We throw open our doors to let people see all we have to offer here at the award-winning Moss Wood Caravan Park! There will be plenty for our existing guests to join in with though, with a troop of brand new caravans joining us for the weekend to allow you to see what the very latest holiday homes have to offer. You’ll be pleasantly surprised!
Saturday 19th May – Royal Wedding Street Party
To celebrate the Royal Wedding, we will be throwing a street party around Moss Wood! Everyone will be welcome at this typically British celebration!

Saturday 23rd June – Day Trip to Blackpool*
We will be laying on a coach to Blackpool for the day, taking a group over to the country’s favourite seaside resort for a fantastic day out!
Saturday 21st July – Local Produce Taste Test
In 2017 our taste test was a huge success – and we can’t wait to do it again! We take pride in stocking local produce in our on-site shop, and at our taste test we invite our suppliers to send over free samples for you to try out!
Saturday 4th August – Wild Day!
We first ran our Wild Day last year and it was so successful it played a large part in Moss Wood receiving a special distinction award from the David Bellamy Conservation Award Scheme in 2017! For 2018 we already have plans to make this bigger and better…make sure you don’t miss it!
Saturday 18th August – Fun Day
To celebrate the summer, we will be holding a Fun Day with some traditional stalls such as Play Your Cards Right and Whack a Rat. No computer games in sight here!
Saturday 1st September – Guided Walk*
At Moss Wood we are surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK – yet so much of it is a well kept secret! Well, we would like to let you in on the secret because we like you so much. We will be arranging for a guide to take a group on a walk around some of our ‘green and pleasant land’ – make sure you join us!
Saturday 22nd September – Day Trip to Lancaster*
