What to do at Holgates this February Half Term Holiday


The February half-term marks an excellent time to plan a getaway for some family bonding and adventure. As one of the top holiday destinations in Lancashire and Cumbria, Holgates Holiday Parks offer the perfect base to explore the beautiful surrounding landscapes and attractions.

Whether you choose to stay at our flagship Silverdale holiday park, surrounded by over 100 acres of mature woodland and countryside, or unwind at our Ribble Valley retreat, a range of comfortable accommodation awaits across our award-winning holiday parks. From holiday caravans to glamping pods, find your ideal family lodgings at your preferred Holgates location.

Once settled into your home-away-from-home, adventure awaits across our holiday parks’ enviable locations. We’ve rounded up the top attractions and activities happening in Lancashire and the Lake District this February half-term to help you make the most of your Holgates holiday.

Visit RSPB Leighton Moss Nature Reserve

Just seven miles from Silverdale lies the RSPB Leighton Moss Nature Reserve, a peaceful wetland habitat brimming with wildlife. Enjoy spotting native kingfishers, otters and even red deer on guided walks and from the hides.

The on-site café offers warming meals and hot drinks between adventures. The reserve makes an excellent half-day trip from Holgates amidst the serenity of nature.

Cruise Lake Windermere

No trip to the Lake District is complete without exploring dazzling Lake Windermere. Take in the glistening waters and lush landscapes on a relaxing cruise past Ambleside and Bowness-on-Windermere. Glide past islands and soak up scenes that have inspired artists and poets for centuries.

You’ll also have time to wander around these traditional towns overflowing with shops, tea rooms and restaurants.

Stargaze at Warton Crag

Escape light pollution and experience some of Lancashire’s clearest night skies at the Warton Crag Nature Reserve near Silverdale. This remote hilltop transforms into a stargazer’s paradise after dark.

Pack a picnic blanket, thermos of hot chocolate and some binoculars for spotting constellations on crisp clear nights. 

Explore Local Beauty Spots

The landscapes surrounding Holgates invite days spent immersed in nature. Walk off that holiday feeling with scenic strolls to Jenny Brown’s Point overlooking Morecambe Bay and the Giant’s Seat with views across Silverdale. 

Or explore Jack Scout’s secluded paths between the bushes to find hidden ways down to pebble beaches, where you can scramble over rocks and hunt for treasures in the rock pools.

Visit Greenlands Farm Village

Just a short drive from Silverdale lies Greenlands Farm Village, an all-weather attraction perfect for family fun. Let the kids run wild in the indoor play barn in between meeting farm animals.

Refuel with tasty local produce at the on-site restaurant before returning to your cosy holiday home.

Relax at Holgates Holiday Parks

Of course, you may wish to simply relax and soak up the peaceful surrounds of Ribble Valley or Silverdale on your half-term break!  Holgates parks place you amid the unspoilt splendour of the Lancashire countryside.

Let the kids loose to explore our parks’ nature trails and outdoor playgrounds. Back at your holiday caravan, snuggle up to watch movies with hot chocolates and popcorn before cosying up under the blankets.

With on-site shops, restaurants and bars, Holgates parks have something for everyone.

Take a plunge at Silverdale

Of course, relaxing at our award-winning Silverdale park opens up even more possibilities. Make a splash with the kids in the indoor swimming pool complex. Adults can also unwind with lane swims in the pool or soak sore muscles in the sauna and steam room.
