A holiday at Holgates is ideal in any season; from the warmth of the summer months to the wonderful colours of autumn and the chill of winter, there is always something to do and see around our parks. Beat the winter blues and distract yourself from the poor weather – your family and friends will also enjoy having a delicious winter meal during a getaway at Holgates, whether you join us at The Royal or make an amazing homecooked lunch.

Skincare and Prescriptions

With the colder winds in the Lake District and temperatures dropping, you will need to take further care of your skin. Your daily skincare routine is more important than ever, as moisturising your skin is vital to avoid irritation, redness, and dryness. In addition, don’t forget to pack any prescription medication you need to take and some cold and flu medicine. You never know when you may feel a bit under the weather after spending time having fun in the outdoors!


Christmas Presents and Jumper

If you’re looking for a different setting for your Christmas holiday, why not stay at Holgates and enjoy the stunning scenery? Staying at our parks for Christmas will give you a unique experience that you’ll never forget – especially the little ones! Have Santa visit Holgates by staying for Christmas and packing your presents

Winter and cold weather go hand in hand, so don’t forget to pack up warm and cosy clothes for your winter getaway. And add your favourite Christmas jumpers for a touch of festive cheer – after all, looking the part during the festive season is always fun.


Camera and Entertainment

Winter is always a phenomenal season to take amazing photos. You can catch red deer, osprey, and golden eagles amongst other winter animals and take stunning photos of these beautiful animals in the wild and in the ancient woodlands of the area. Capture memories of a winter holiday or a Christmas celebration with the family!

While you rest from a fun day out, you might want to have a few entertainment options with you. Boardgames for the little ones will provide hours of fun, and taking your tablet is always great to watch your favourite shows and Christmas films.


Good Walking Boots

With walking and hiking trails aplenty around our parks, getting out and staying active is easy. There are a few walking routes around the Arnside & Silverdale AONB (Area Of Natural Beauty), providing a gorgeous backdrop for walks ranging from easy to moderate. You can take a stroll along the promenade or a more challenging hike up to Warton Crag, the highest point at the AONB at 163 metres.

If you fancy a winter getaway, have a relaxed time in our parks with plenty of exercise, fantastic views, and time away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Here at Holgates, we always want to ensure that you have the best possible holiday getaway, which is why we provide the highest quality of accommodation and facilities.
