About Queensland Country Park
Situated just a stone’s throw from the coast, yet deeply situated in the lush, verdant countryside, Queensland Country Park is a private idyll that’s well-positioned for a variety of reasons. However, before we discuss its perfect location, it is well worth exploring the grounds themselves.
Queensland holiday homes put you right at the waterside, with beautifully-kept private lake amenities available for you to look upon and enjoy all year round. Perhaps you just want to while away an afternoon by the water, or even take on some light fishing. Based deep in surrounding countryside spanning 7.5 acres, this award-winning park resort is designed to offer a balance between private accommodation and a close-knit community.
The park is designed to offer holidaymakers their own private domiciles in a location that blends in wonderfully with the greenery surrounding it. Each plot is unique, and the bespoke grounds are carefully maintained and landscaped throughout the year. You will even find that the properties here are situated with views and sunlight hours in mind, meaning that you will never be in the full glare of the sun. You can sit out on your veranda and watch it set as the hours while by.
What also inspires visitors at Queensland is the spectacular 'Well-being Garden'. This private plot of land, easily accessible to park visitors, was designed and set up in 2018 to give people the opportunity to relax and unwind in the heart of the community. Boasting rows of trees and water features, it's a soothing, meditative environment which will appeal to anyone looking to break free from the stresses of everyday life. Thousands of trees have been planted in the grounds. Therefore, over the past two decades, the park has developed into a natural paradise all of its own.
You will even be able to spot a variety of local wildlife, too. The park has been keenly designed to welcome many different types of bird, rabbits, foxes, hares, butterflies and even deer. Its beginnings as a simple touring park are long behind it - as it remains one of the most prestigious and fascinating private holiday communities in the region.
The best part of all of this is – of course – you could have access to it all, the moment you step out of your new holiday property at Queensland Country Park. For many people, it really is a getaway dream come true. And if you do wish to explore the wider area, there are plenty of links for you to get out and see the world – or Lancashire, at the very least!
