Why Go Camping Near The Lake District?


The Lake District National Park in the United Kingdom is an enchanting region of lush green hills, sparkling lakes, and quaint villages. It’s no wonder that it has become one of Britain’s most popular holiday destinations!

However, the popularity of the region actually can have its downsides too. For example, overcrowded or overpriced campsites in Summer can really put a damper on your holiday, particularly if you’re looking for a relaxing weekend or few days away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

For those looking for a little more comfort, peace and affordability than traditional Lake District camping provides, Holgates’ caravan park in Silverdale and at Hollins Farm offers ideal accommodation within easy reach of all the best Lake District attractions.

The Beauty Of The Lake District

The Lake District is a stunning area of Britain, and camping near it can be a fantastic option for those looking to get closer to nature. Not only is there no shortage of things to do in the Lake District, but thanks to its generous size there are plenty of quieter spots where you can simply relax and take in the majestic views.

From the stunning views at Lake Windermere to the serene beauty of Grasmere, the Lake District has something to offer everyone. And with Holgates’ caravan park in Silverdale being close to all the main attractions, you won’t have far to travel if you decide to take a day trip out and explore the area.

Why Camping Just Outside The Lake District Can Be A Better Option:

Camping just outside the Lake District can be the perfect option for those looking to enjoy all of the beauty and attractions of the region without dealing with overpriced or crowded campsites. Holgates’ caravan park in Silverdale is ideally situated close enough to many of the major attractions of the Lake District, but far enough away from the crowds that you can enjoy some peace and quiet.

Silverdale itself offers a variety of attractions too, such as the Silverdale Golf Course and Arnside Knott, one of the highest points in the area which offers beautiful views over Morecambe Bay.

Furthermore, staying at Holgates’ caravan park is incredibly affordable, with prices significantly lower than if you choose to stay a few miles up the road, with a Lake District postcode. Not to mention the added convenience of having on-site facilities such as toilets, showers, and laundry rooms to make your stay even more comfortable.

What Are The Benefits Of Staying In A Holgates’ Holiday Park

If you’re looking to explore the Lake District, the benefits of staying in a Holgates’ holiday park are plentiful. The campsite is close to many of the region’s best attractions, yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle that you can enjoy some peace and quiet.

What’s more, a Holgates’ park offers incredibly affordable accommodation with on-site facilities to make your stay even more comfortable.

With prices far lower than the more expensive campsites in the heart of the Lake District, Holgates’ camping pitches are an ideal option for those looking to enjoy a great vacation on a budget.

How To Make The Most Of The Lake District While Camping Nearby:

If you’re camping in Silverdale, Arnside or anywhere else just on the edge of the Lake District, that doesn’t mean you’re limited in what you can see or do.

Despite being a little further from the core attractions, you’re still close enough to visit the likes of Windermere, Derwentwater and Grasmere with ease. Whether it’s taking in breathtaking views from atop a fell or simply enjoying some fresh air and sunshine at one of the area’s many beauty spots, you won’t be short of things to do.

So, if you’re looking for a peaceful and affordable holiday in the Lake District, Holgates’ caravan park in Silverdale and Hollins Farm Holiday Park is an ideal option. With its convenient location close to many of the region’s main attractions yet far enough away from the crowds and higher prices, you can enjoy a perfect break and get the most out of your camping experience.
