Why Book a Family Holiday in Lancashire?

Lancashire is the perfect destination for a family getaway. From its natural wonders to its historic landmarks and family attractions, it promises a trip that’s both memorable and magical. Here’s why:

  • Breathtaking Landscapes: Lancashire boasts miles of stunning coastline and lush countryside – perfect for a peaceful family day out. Wander along the picturesque Morecambe Bay, or explore the Forest of Bowland, the coastline at Arnside with the neighbouring area of Silverdale which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 
  • Historic Charm: Dive deep into England’s rich history by visiting Lancashire’s beautiful towns and cities. From the majestic Lancaster Castle to the quaint streets of Clitheroe and the vintage charm of Carnforth, there’s a story waiting to be told around every corner.
  • Family Fun: Lancashire promises thrills for all the family. Head to Blackpool Pleasure Beach for a day of exhilarating rides and attractions, or if you prefer a more laid-back experience, the Bowland Wild Boar Park offers a unique opportunity to get up close with wildlife.

Lancashire’s prime location also offers easy access to the Lake District, one of the UK’s most famous national parks. Whether you’re hiking, boating or simply soaking in the views, the Lake District is a must-visit during your Lancashire family holiday.

Explore Our Lancashire Family Holiday Parks

Open year-round, Holgates family holiday parks are ideal for a summer family getaway, Christmas break or spontaneous half-term trip. Choose from coastal and countryside locations, all surrounded in natural beauty, with plenty of nearby towns and villages to explore. 

Each of our family holiday parks in Lancashire offers something unique, from Silverdale’s incredible indoor leisure complex to Ribble Valley’s spacious family lodges. What’s more, with dog exercise areas and pet-friendly accommodation options available, you’re free to bring your four-legged family members along, too.


Nestled on the border of Lancashire and Cumbria, in the heart of the Silverdale and Arnside Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, our flagship Silverdale holiday park is a picturesque retreat overlooking the stunning Morecambe Bay. Immerse yourself in nature and relax in a relaxing countryside setting, surrounded by acres of farmland and woodland, or enjoy an array of on-site leisure facilities boasting fun for the whole family.

With an on-site swimming and leisure club, bar, restaurant and shop, you’ll have everything you need at your fingertips. Whether you’re looking to stay in our fully-equipped hire caravans, camp under the stars or experience our luxurious family glamping pods, Silverdale has it all.

Ribble Valley

Tucked away in the heart of Ribble Valley in Rimington, our Ribble Valley holiday park is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. Surrounded by the enchanting Lancashire countryside, it offers a tranquil escape with picturesque views at every turn. 

Bring your own touring caravan or motorhome, book one of our popular static caravans, or treat yourself to a spacious family lodge. Enjoy endless fun walking, cycling or picnicking in the beautiful countryside setting or visit the nearby Clitheroe, Skipton and Colne for shopping and dining. Ribble Valley’s on-site bar is the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploration.

Bay View

Situated on the outskirts of Carnforth, Bay View Park offers breathtaking coastal views that will captivate your heart. The park’s idyllic location on the Morecambe Bay coastline offers the ideal setting for a peaceful family holiday in Lancashire, whether you’re looking to pitch your tent, bring your own motorhome or stay in one of our cosy hire caravans. 

But it’s not just about the views; Bay View is a place where relaxation meets adventure. Enjoy the on-site bar, restaurant and shop or go exploring further afield with fantastic transport links to Carnforth, Bolton-le-Sands and the city of Lancaster. 

Marsh House

Our newest Holgates holiday park on the outskirts of Carnforth, Marsh House is a coastal haven offering unparalleled views of the sea. The beautiful setting, where the River Keer meets Morecambe Bay, ensures a family holiday in Lancashire like no other. It’s a place where the gentle sound of waves and the chirping of birds become your daily soundtrack.
