The holiday season is a magical time of year, filled with joy, laughter, and creating heartwarming memories with loved ones. This year, make your festive celebrations extra special with a cosy winter glamping getaway at one of Holgates’ award-winning holiday parks.

Nestled within the natural beauty of Lancashire and Cumbria, our picturesque locations provide the ideal festive retreat. Surround yourself with sweeping views of glistening lakes, coastal sunsets, and countryside dotted with frosted trees. Then, snuggle up in the warmth and comfort of our luxurious glamping pods – your home away from home this Christmas.

A Magical Festive Atmosphere

Our warm, cosy glamping pods are where the spirit of the holidays truly comes alive. 

Additionally, join in the festive fun with carol singing, childrens discos and entertainment for all the family. Don’t miss our Santa’s grotto at Silverdale, where you can meet the jolly man himself over two special weekends in December. However you choose to celebrate, our glamping pods let you embrace the spirit of the season in comfort and style.

Idyllic Glamping Places to Choose From 

Choose from four scenic Holgates holiday parks to find your perfect glamping destination this Christmas: 


Set on 100 acres of woodlands and countryside, our award-winning Silverdale park offers panoramic views alongside 5-star leisure facilities. The quaint seaside village of Arnside is also just a short drive away. Surrounded by natural beauty, Silverdale makes for an unforgettable festive glamping stay.

Hollins Farm

Nestled at the foot of Arnside Knott, Hollins Farm overlooks sweeping countryside leading down to the Silverdale and Arnside Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its charming rural setting provides a peaceful festive escape.

Bay View

Our Bay View park sits directly on the Morecambe Bay coastline, where you can wake up to spectacular sunrises over the glistening water. Nearby countryside, villages and market towns offer plenty to explore.

Ribble Valley

For a quintessential pastoral getaway, choose our Ribble Valley park nestled within the Ribble Valley’s charming scenery. Spend the holidays surrounded by lush green landscapes and cosy country pubs.

Wherever you choose, our idyllic glam camping locations promise you glamping holidays filled with comfort, natural beauty and celebration.

Cosy Amenities in Our Glamping Pods

Glamping with Holgates strikes the perfect balance between comfort and connecting with nature. Our lovingly furnished glamping pods provide a quirky, cosy accommodation option that’s worlds away from a standard hotel stay.

Our standard pods offer an affordable alternative to camping, with electricity and basic furnishings. For extra amenities like kitchenettes, dining areas,bathrooms/showers and TVs, upgrade to our luxury or deluxe pods.  You’ll stay warm and toasty in our Luxury Pods and Deluxe Dens thanks to central heating and double glazing.

Outdoor Escapes and Festive Activities

Staying in a pod brings you closer to the great outdoors. Rise at dawn to watch the mist over the fells and breathe in crisp winter air. When night falls, gaze upward at the star-strewn Cumbrian sky through the window.

The surrounding landscapes also offer plenty of festive activities. Go winter bird spotting, explore coastal trails or amble through market towns adorned with twinkling lights. Many quintessentially British Christmas traditions like pantos, carol concerts and Christmas markets take place nearby too.

Of course, the main event is the Lake District and Lancashire’s winter wonderland scenery. Head out into the postcard-perfect countryside and embrace the magic of Christmas!


Winter Walk

Festive Dining and Takeaway Treats

After a day of outdoor adventures, return to your pod and get cosy. Many of our holiday parks have on-site bars and restaurants, serving up feasts from festive menus and offering evening entertainment. Or, snuggle up in your PJs, peruse our takeaway menu, and tuck in to restaurant quality meals in the comfort of your own surroundings..

The fully equipped kitchenettes in some pods also make it easy to whip up your own festive favourites. Enjoy Christmas lunch or dinner overlooking picture-perfect views through your pod’s panoramic windows.
