Explore The Area & Things To Do Around Our Hollins Farm Park

Surrounding Hollins Farm

Hollins Farm is situated a mere 15-minute walk away from our flagship Silverdale Park. These parks offer plenty of things to do for the whole family. Further afield you’ll find the quaint Silverdale village where you can peruse local shops for fresh produce and locally-made products.

At the centre of the village lies the recently refurbished village pub, The Royal Silverdale. This warm, inviting pub is part of the Holgates Family Group offering locally sourced beers, ales, and food. 

The area surrounding the village is packed with exciting places to explore. From ancient ruins to sandy beaches, stunning vistas to peaceful nature walks, there is something for everyone at Silverdale Park. One of our favourite highlights has to be Jenny Brown’s Point. This viewpoint offers panoramic views across Morecambe Bay, ideal for sunset shots and photos with the family. 

Hollins Farm central location also means that RSPB Leighton Moss is only a 15-minute drive away. This area is renowned for the wildlife on offer with sightings of bearded tits, breeding bitterns, deer and butterflies common.

Arts and craft fans can wend their way through the trees at Woodwell to discover the Wolf House Gallery. This gallery has everything from arts and crafts to gifts and jewellery. The gallery’s tea rooms are also great for a quick bite or cuppa. 

Located 15 miles from Silverdale, you’ll find the Gateway to the Lakes, Kendal. This famous town is home to Kendal Mint Cake, local shops, pubs, restaurants, and is the perfect starting point for your journey through the Lake District.

Lakes Aquarium, Lakeside

The Lakes Aquarium introduces you to over 30 different marine habitats, featuring a wide range of species.

This family of otters are especially entertaining at feeding times and the underwater tunnel gives you a unique perspective of life beneath the surface.

For a full day’s adventure why not pair a visit to the aquarium with a steamer cruise on Windermere Lake Cruises. These cruises travel from Bowness to Lakeside providing you with stunning views of the lakes and landscapes.

Wray Castle, situated in Low Wray, near Ambleside, is a firm favourite with kids. This magical neo-gothic castle has interesting rooms, turrets, and gardens to explore. The turrets themselves offer great views out towards Lake Windermere.
