AA Campsite of the Year England & Overall Award Winners


The annual AA awards are a barometer of quality across the holiday park industry and we are beyond proud of our hard-working teams at our flagship Silverdale park! Winning ‘AA Campsite of the Year for England and Overall’ highlights the outstanding 5-star facilities our flagship park offers and shows the quality of service guests can expect to receive across our family of parks and holiday locations. Our family of parks and locations are in some of the UK’s finest coastal and countryside across Lancashire, Cumbria and the Ribble Valley; with a location perfect for everyone whether you’re looking for your very own static caravan facing Morecambe Bay or a humble glamping trip near Gisburn, Clitheroe.

It comes as no surprise that our flagship Silverdale park has been recognised as a front-runner across England and overall, as our VisitEngland inspections in the Summer of 2022 found all of the eligible parks are beautifully presented meeting the 5-star assessments. These assessments focus on the quality and variety of facilities a park has to offer, including customer care and hospitality.

Owner, Michael Holgate said of receiving the accolade: “Every year we work hard to improve our guest experience across our parks. We are thrilled to keep winning these awards and now to have won AA Campsite of the Year for 2022 we have been recognised as one of the top sites in the UK.’’

“It’s a real group effort and a great achievement for the whole team involved at Holgates and I dedicate this award to them. Our customers will find a first-class holiday park with excellent facilities and friendly, welcoming staff, so it’s particularly rewarding for the AA to recognise our efforts and the hard work of the team.”

A thriving family-owned business, spanning generations with over 65 years in the leisure and tourism industry, it’s safe to say we know a thing or two about making holidays extra special here at Holgates.  Established in 1956, our family is now made up of 10 holiday parks, multiple holiday cottages and a variety of holiday options to choose from across Lancashire, Cumbria and the Ribble Valley!
