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.

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.

Thanks,

Simon

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.

We are 2 adults and an 11 yr old boy and were the only tent people on the site. The tent area is the furthest away from the amenities but it's a nice stroll, though quite far back again. This did mean we were in the quietest part of the site, which is big. The grounds are lovely, very well kept and clean. The toilet block is heated which was a joy on particularly chilly nights. The tent pitches are sort of 'pitch where you want' in the defined area but you can have an electric hook up so obviously would need to be near those if needed. We chose a site on the top of the small hill so we had a good view but boy was it rocky! It bent our heavy duty pegs.

It was a particularly quiet time of year due to the weather I'm guessing. It stopped throwing it down long enough for s to get the tent up and all through the night but being on the hill it drained well. Even the bottom of the hill wasn't soggy. The pool and cafe were popular and a bit too busy for me on night one but the 'boys' enjoyed the pool every day. I went once and it was very nice and not too crowded for the 7-9pm swim.

We ate at the restaurant after doing a long walk in the surrounding area and it was manna from heaven. Very nice food and not too pricey.

The shop is very handy and very well stocked. Heavy duty tent pegs, milk, bread or everything you might need to cook a family dinner.

The staff were very friendly and pleasant. I turned my ankle on our way to eat one evening and the staff brought me ice and a first aider!

The site felt safe enough for our son to go off by himself to any of the play areas or have a run. There were lots of children on bikes. Many, many people had dogs and were on the whole responsible about picking up after them. Although I can't vouch for the specific exercise areas as we didn't walk that way.

There are many public footpaths around the area and a 30 min drive gets you to Windermere where there is a great little motor museum and cafe and bus to catch the lake cruise. Had I remembered we would have taken the guided walk across Morecambe bay.

The staff were again very helpful when our car battery was dead and attempted a jump start.

I suspect this site gets very busy during peak times, so there would be lots of children to play with. But, we prefer quieter times / smaller sites. We may come back and use a static caravan later in the yr when we take our new dog away, but it isn't the cheapest place to stay in a tent.

Last visited the site 20 years ago so saw some nice changes and this time with kids. Agree that the standard of the facilities are excellent. Kids loved the pool and especially the inflatable play session one morning. The cafe is good and you can sit looking onto the pool which has lifeguards. Food looked nice and reasonable although didn't try it. There is a good well stocked shop with a good selection of bread/rolls etc

There is a nice large green play area which the boys all played football on each evening

There were a few niggles but in the main minor. The Wifi is free but was virtually unusable. Apparently as it is free and people have it on their devices, they all automatically connect (and presume update) when people are near by resulting in it grinding to a halt. 3g was not available.

The second was that the water flow in the shower block was rather poor and one morning was just a trickle which meant I had to give up showering. The kids were equally unimpressed. Note that there are only 2 showers in each of the 2 blocks. Having said that, even though it was school holidays I never had to wait

Having said said all that. The site is expensive but really well located with excellent facilities which is really good if the weather is poor. Would definitely return

Went with my husband and our 6 year old daughter. This was our first caravan adventure so really didn't know what to expect so we picked a site with everything on and as it was still winter we thought a pool would be ideal for our little girl especially on cold rainy days. A great site with great facilities, shop, cafe and bar, pool and small arcade. Shower blocks were clean, staff friendly and helpful, food in the restaurant was great, great for walking. Couldn't fault the site really and would definitely go back.
