The festive season is nearly upon us and, here at Holgates, we can barely believe another year is almost gone! It seems like yesterday we were welcoming 2017 and now, very soon, we will be saying goodbye to it.
It has been an amazing year for Holgates and the team, and so much has happened in such a short twelve months.
We are firm believers in giving back to the community and helping whenever and wherever we can, so we are happy that our efforts raised over £9,000 for charity this year! A large percentage of this came from our charity Ceilidh in aid of pancreatic cancer in the UK. We also supported other charities such as Breast Cancer Now and Westmorland Red Squirrel society.
We’re also incredibly pleased that our Holgates Silverdale park was awarded a special distinction award in the 2017 David Bellamy Conservation Award Scheme from the British Holiday & Home Parks Association Ltd (BHHPA). We have been awarded this incredible award for our innovative work for the new hedge scene to complement the existing mature hedgerows, as well as for the elaborate fencing scheme surrounding the new hedgerows.
Staying on the topic of awards, how could we not mention our attendance at the North West in Bloom Awards, in which we took home 7 gold awards for all of our parks! In addition to this, our Silverdale location also won Best Caravan Park of the Year and Conservation and Environmental Award 2017.
We hosted a holiday home model show and created competitions that we’re happy to know our customers thoroughly enjoyed. Of course, we also saw the Lake District finally becoming part of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites list – a well-deserved recognition that made us thrilled and proud.
We are so excited for what 2018 has to offer that we can’t wait for the turn of midnight on the last day of this year!
Christmas and New Year’s Eve at Holgates are like no other, as we have everything you could possibly want to celebrate this festive period, from great grub waiting for you at The Royal to natural beauty all around you. We also offer plenty of entertainment, from a pool to a bowling alley and much more in-between, so enjoy your stay and celebrate the festive season in style.
We would like to take this time to thank all of our customers, old and new, for your support over this year. We couldn’t continue to provide high-quality service and fantastic holiday homes without your help.

Season’s Greetings and a Happy New year from the whole team here at Holgates.
