Family Holidays in Morecambe


Located on the edge of the stunning Morecambe Bay in Lancashire, the seaside town of Morecambe is the perfect destination for an unforgettable staycation. With its sandy beaches, promenade amusements, and friendly atmosphere, Morecambe has long been a favourite for family fun and relaxing short breaks.

Holgates Holiday Parks in North Lancashire and South Cumbria are situated right on the doorstep of Morecambe, offering comfortable accommodation and fantastic facilities for families looking to explore this beautiful stretch of coastline. Whether you’re looking for beachside fun, country rambles, or days out in the nearby Lake District, book your family holiday in Morecambe with Holgates today!

What Makes Morecambe Perfect for Family Holidays

With its traditional seaside charm, vibrant promenade, and wealth of family-friendly attractions, Morecambe offers a fun-filled break the whole family will enjoy.

The sweeping sandy beach is perfect for sandcastle building, kite flying, and paddling in the sea. The recently restored Victorian promenade stretches over 4 miles, lined with cafés, ice cream parlours, fish and chip shops and amusement arcades – and of course, the famous Eric Morecambe statue. 

As well as its seaside attractions, Morecambe also offers gorgeous coastal walks along the bay, boat trips, and a calendar of events throughout the year like the Morecambe Vintage Festival. With so much on offer for the whole family it’s no wonder Morecambe remains one of the UK’s favourite seaside destinations.

Explore the Stunning Morecambe Bay Coastline

As well as enjoying the delights of the town itself, a Morecambe family holiday is the perfect opportunity to explore the North Lancashire coastline. Morecambe Bay stretches across a huge expanse, fringed with coastal villages like Grange-Over-Sands and market towns such as Carnforth. 

The Lancashire Coastal Way passes right through Morecambe, offering stunning cliff top walking routes both north towards Arnside and Silverdale, and south past Lancaster towards Blackpool. With long sandy beaches, rocky coves, nature reserves and historic fishing villages to discover, you’ll want to return again and again to explore the varied landscapes of Morecambe Bay.

Easy Access to the Lake District

One of the most exciting aspects of choosing a family holiday in Morecambe is its proximity to the Lake District National Park. Under an hour’s drive from Morecambe Bay, the UK’s most popular national park offers incredible mountain scenery and adventures.

Immerse yourself in boating and watersports at Lake Windermere, explore a mountain bike trail or visit the many local towns and attractions nestled within the South Lakes. Base yourself at one of our Morecambe holiday parks, and enjoy the best of both worlds – beach fun and family amusements beside the seaside, with the chance to visit the rolling green fells and shimmering waters of the Lake District at your leisure.

Spotlight on our Morecambe Parks: Bay View and Marsh House

Bay View

Located in the village of Bolton-le-Sands, overlooking the shimmering waters of Morecambe Bay, our Bay View holiday park is a coastal haven.

With direct access to the bay’s coastal footpath on your doorstep, embark on stunning walks south to Morecambe or north to Carnforth. The traditional seaside town of Morecambe is just a 12 minute drive away.

Stay in a cosy static caravan, pitch your own tent, touring caravan or motorhome, or indulge in one of our luxurious glamping pods. Onsite facilities at Bay View include a bar and restaurant, shop, children’s play area and dog exercise field. Gaze out over the glorious coastal views as you relax with your family after a busy day exploring the bay.

Better still, if your four-legged friends are coming along for the seaside fun, our Bay View park is the perfect choice with a dog-friendly area of our bar and restaurant inside; which is housed inside a lovingly converted barn.

Marsh House

Watch the river Keer flow gently into the waters of Morecambe Bay at our serene Marsh House holiday park. Surrounded by nature and only 15 minutes from Morecambe by car, it’s a peaceful coastal retreat that the whole family will love.

Our comfortable holiday caravan boasts breathtaking views across the bay to Silverdale and Arnside. Alternatively, book a stay in a charming self-catering Keer Cottage, or pitch your own touring caravan on-site between March and November.

With coastal footpath access on the doorstep and Morecambe’s seaside fun within easy reach, Marsh House is the perfect base for your family’s next adventure. At the end of a busy day, visit the bar and restaurant at our neighbouring Bay View park.
