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.

Just been for a long weekend, we have stayed here before and you know what to expect, great staff, clean and top class amenities, if you want peace and quite go to the top of the field, bit of a walk up hill on way back, price is a little expensive 70 2 adults one child but the way I look at it is you have a swimming pool and all the amenities there for you so use them.

I love the place cant wait to go back especially when its dull and raining for that autumn break

Just back from a very rainy weekend at this site which is such a shame because it is a beauty. Showers/WC blocks are very nearly first class, only let down by those stupid timed push buttons on the showers which are never on long enough and take away the enjoyment of the thing, not good enough really considering the price of this place.

Anyway in general the whole site is pristine. The shop is well stocked and the wife said the pool was very nice especially the aqua aerobics class (3). There is no land based TV signal but there is a aerial point on every pitch so you will need a lead (available at the shop for 7).

One thing to note for campervan owners is the site is very large and if pitched at the far end there is one helluva walk to and from the reception/shop/cafe area with the walk back being all uphill, not good if your bad on yer pins. You will go a long way before you will better the class of this site.

This is our first visit to this site even though we only live an hours drive away. We booked for 2 nights to see if we liked it and decided to stay for an another night. When we arrived I was greeted by a very pleasant, welcoming, smiley young lady who explained everything to me. I was told to go and find a pitch and to enjoy my stay. The site has many static caravans as holiday homes but there is also a lot of pitches for caravans, motorhomes and tents. The pitches vary in size and some are shady and private and others open to sunshine, so there is a pitch suitable for everyone. There is plenty of grassy areas and a couple of play areas. It is quite pricey but you get what you pay for and included in the price is access to the pool facilities. We did not eat at the cafe as dogs are not allowed inside but it was always busy. The shop was well stocked with essentials and was licensed. There are lots of walks everywhere and we walked to Arnside which was an easy hour leisurely walk. The toilet facilities are clean my only gripe is the showers. The showerhead is quite low down so if you are tall like me you will have to bend down to wash your hair. The push button has to be pressed every few seconds and the temperature of the water cannot be altered so you cannot have a cool shower after a hot days walk, but this is my only gripe so that's not too bad. We will definitely return to this site.

Have just returned from a weekend stay and have to say that the site was a huge let down. Firstly I was left standing in Reception for over ten minutes on arrival even though two staff members were behind the desk, not a very good sign on arrival. Secondly the showers and sink unit water supply was extremely slow, 5 seconds of water in the one shower before it turned off, same in the sink unit. I have heard of water saving but this was ridiculous. Another trip to Reception and again I was left standing there in front of staff for ten minutes and ended up walking away. Last night in the restaurant our food came eventually, 40 minute wait. Wish we had gone to a nice local pub to dine. Bar staff, or should I say the lack of bar staff was a joke, my daughter waited 15 minutes to get served. I waited for 15 minutes also, and in the end we returned to our seats and asked the waitress who brought our food if she could get served as we couldn't. Five of us were in our party so we thought we would go here as a treat yet we were all let down badly by the service. We will stick in future to visiting smaller more personal sites that are a lot cheaper where the staff are the proprietors who care about the service that they provide to their customers. Also if you don't mind kids that aren't even with you taking water from your service pitch tap, filling up litre water bottles and throwing water everywhere and then leaving all the empty bottles rolling around outside your caravan then you certainly must pay this site a visit.

Management response: Firstly, apologies that your stay at Silverdale was not as you or we would have wished for. The vast majority of our customers, as per previous reviews, do have a fantastic time at Silverdale and have complimented us on the service received in both the reception and the restaurant in the past. I am keen to explore the background of your dissatisfaction further and would be grateful if you would contact me at Silverdale to discuss on 01524 701 508.

Kind Regards,

Steven Byast

General Manager

Roads can be little tricky specially when arriving when the school is letting out with all the Chelsea tractors 'parked' about.

This site is fantastic.

Checking in is a breeze and the welcome pack seemed to cover everything one needs to know.

Barriers and security on entrance with number plate recognition cameras.

Its pick your own pitch here.

The majority are level but those that are not need clever positioning and levelling. All have hook ups, fresh water and waste water drain.

The facilities are spotlessly clean and bright. They are regularly attended to during the day and evening.

At the complex. There's a bar, a reasonably priced restaurant with beautifully prepared and tasty food pitch and putt, swimming pool, soft play games rooms. Our 4 year old loved it and so did we too.

It seems a little expensive (37. 00 early July)but with the exception of the gym you don't get charged extra for showers hair dryer, swimming pool and pitch & putt.

You get you get what you pay for and if you are like us, you will pay more and you will be very happy with this beautiful park.

The staff are all helpful, polite and courteous.

The owner should be very proud of them and his beautiful park.

Definitely recommend this park and we are definitely going back hopefully sooner than later.
