Our Locations

If this sounds like the perfect way to beat those January blues, all you need to do is choose which of our six parks you’d like to stay at. Here’s a brief breakdown of what you can expect from each of our locations:

Silverdale – Nestled away in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty amid over 100 acres of woodland and countryside, our Silverdale caravan park is a perfect getaway for the whole family. Boasting a whole host of facilities for children of all ages and even adults, our flagship park is a must visit.

Hollins Farm – If you’re looking to really get away from it all, this is the park for you. With only hens and goats for company, Hollins Farm is ideal if you’re looking to shut off from the outside world for a few days. You’re only a 10-minute walk away from all of the facilities at our Silverdale park, making this the perfect location, if you’re looking for a mixture of tranquillity and activities.

Bay View – Our Bay View site was once a working farm, giving it some fantastic country features that can be seen in the Squirrels bar and restaurant. Furthermore, its location overlooking Morecambe Bay boasts some truly stunning views across the Lancashire coast. This park offers the option of bringing your own touring caravan, motorhome or tent, but you can also hire your very own luxurious caravan holiday home.

Far Arnside – This is one of the most sought-after parks in the area, and with good reason. Far Arnside has the best of both worlds: exclusive beautiful tranquil coastline that’s just a short distance from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. It’s worth noting that this particular site is exclusively for holiday homeowners, so if you enjoy your stay at one of our other parks, you may well be interested in purchasing your very own holiday home here.

Netherbeck – Located on the outskirts of Carnforth, Netherbeck boasts truly stunning, landscaped parkland and a secluded getaway from day-to-day life. Like Far Arnside, this site is exclusively for private holiday homeowners.

Silver Ridge – Perfectly situated for those who are keen to explore the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, this getaway is sure to beat those January blues. Silver Ridge sits in an elevated position amongst woodland in an area of natural beauty. This particular site is perfect for those who enjoy camping but want some of those home comforts thrown in for good measure.

If you choose to stay at any of our holiday parks, you will receive full complimentary access to all facilities at our state-of-the-art Silverdale location.
