We originally booked to stay at Hollins farm where we have been before, but the site phoned to ask us if we would like to change to Holgates Silverdale main site, as they didn't have a warden at Hollins for the day we arrived. We agreed, and were very pleasantly surprised.

The site pitches were excellent. Well kept and spacious with lots of wildlife. We had rabbits, squirrels, woodpeckers, bullfinches and treecreepers all within feet of our campervan. Toilet block was immaculate, well-thought out and toasty warm.

The complex facilities were spot on. This was our first holiday with our 9-week old daughter - she had her first swim in the heated pool, where there were shallow steps to make it easy for us, and baby inflatable rings and noodles to borrow. The changing facilities were good, and the whole place had a very nice, relaxed feel about it.

Ok, it's not cheap, but with the use of the pool we thought it was worth it. We'll definitely go back.

This is an upmarket site with a range of excellent facilities and amenities. It is more expensive than we would normally pay but we were keen to visit the area and weren't disappointed. The site is really well landscaped and maintained with individual pitches each with hook up and water.

The bar is functional with good outside seating, shop well stocked and adult only swimming hour most welcome.

The only down side is you are a good walk from silverdale and arnside the local villages. We had a lovely walk to and from arnside for lunch but it was an hour each way on footpaths so without using a car you are rather stranded on the site at night.

First time towing my caravan, large pitches were easy to set up, lovely wooded settings, country and Morcambe bay views, toilets and showers spotless, cafe/bar food and pool great for grandchildren, as wifi high on their list of needs.

Local pubs The Fighting Cocks and The Ship, food/ service was good with fabulous views over the bay.

The only downside was my family had a pup with them we couldn't all be together to enjoy the on site facilities of food and drinks as there is no area inside where you can take a dog.

A very clean and tidy site, slightly expensive but you do get a swimming pool which was nice and clean, staff nice n friendly, bring hard tent pegs as ground very hard, we ate one night in the restaurant food was reasonablyprice and was ok. We brought our dog, but disappointed we couldn't bring her inside. We would return.

Reviewer: Light Infantry 9 reviews from this member

We booked on silverdale on the cumbian/ lancashire border. The site is clean and well maintained with a really good leisure facility- pool, sauna, jakoosee, gym, restaurant, bar, small shop and kids play room. Pitches all hardstanding. But don't go if you want telephone or internet connection. There aint none. The site advertises wifi but it is a joke. It is only in the restaurant and it don't work. You see every night people trying desperately trying to connect by phone or tablet. When are sites going to be honest about their internet coverage and more to the point when are they going to move into the 21st centary? Even the older generation use the internet and mobile phones.

Management response: In response to Light Infantry's comments we accept that Holgates WiFi is not as good as you would expect at home. Being in a rural area we have struggled for some time to get adequate bandwidth to service all our users in our Cafe area, where up to 80 users can try to access the small bandwidth that we do have at present. Living in large cities may give you the impression that rural areas have the same access to large bandwidth, which we do not. Broadband is far from ubiquitous in many rural areas, and that is why most campsites struggle as we have done to service your needs. However the 21st century is about to reach us as Broadband is now being installed by BT in Silverdale Village. We have been in discussion for several months with our service provider to try and find a viable solution, which we now appear to have, so subject to final agreement, we will be installing 100Mg fibre circuit to site to give you the service you expect. We apologise that it is not very good at present, but we will have a major improvement very soon and please bear with us in busy times when everyone wants to connect to the WiFi service.

This is a fabulous place. Great walks straight from the site along the coast, up Arnside Knott and through Eves Wood.

Nice wooden playgrounds and plenty of green space for ball games.

The pitches are big, mostly private and fully serviced. You are free to choose your own pitch on arrival.

Fantastic swimming pool, sauna, and steam room complex. Really nice bar/restaurant. A well stocked shop that was open from 9am to 9pm. Prices ok.

The only criticism is the showers. There are only 2 in one block and 3 in the other. And the water pressure was not much more than a dribble and I needed to press the button every minute just to keep the dribble dribbling.

Overall, excellent.
