We took our tourer to this site for 4 nights and were very impressed. We have spent time in the area so know the location and area well. The location is great, easy access to Silverdale and Arnside by foot or car and walking distance to the beach. I'd recommned a train ride from Arnside to Ullverston calling at Grange along the way, especially on a sunny day as the views are stunning.

The showering facilities were immaculate if a little old fashioned. The water was running cold on and off for the first day or 2, we reported it and it appeared to get sorted. The leisure facilities are excellent, the pool and changing rooms immaculate which for me was a bonus! I was concerned that the bar and restaurant might feel 'clicky' with the static residents but there was no sign of this. The restaurant overlooks the pool which is nice if you want a coffee whilst the other half swims with the little ones. As it was summer holidays there were lots of families, I was surprised that at no point did it feel like a Butlins or a Haven site! The shop is very well stocked and is very reasonably priced. There are 2 play areas on site for children and plenty space to kick or hit a ball out of the way of others. There are plenty dog walks straight from the site too. We pitched in the middle section as it was busy when we arrived. I would have prefered to be in the top section as it felt less cramped. I felt we were all looking on each other from our pitch but we were very close to the showers etc which was a bonus with a 2yr old!

Negatives (not many!)

We found cars including Holgates vehicles moved quite fast around the site

There seemed to be a lot of car movement past our pitch (people using cars to get to the on site shop etc!)

A little expensive for the pitches but worth it to have use of the pool

Large site with great facilities & friendly staff.

The pitch fees are expensive compared to other sites, but not excessive.

Although our pitch was almost level, some of the pitches are at very strange angles and it would be difficult to get near level even with ramps etc.

Pitches are allocated on arrival so all the decent ones go first!

Water, grey waste, 16amp electric and TV point on all pitches is very handy.

Showers & Toilets modern & clean.

The huge down side to this site is the approach roads, at least a couple of miles of very narrow lanes with high hedges or dry stone walls on either side. Although others won't be put off by this - it'll prevent us going back in a hurry!

Not a site we would have chosen during high season but for a late season weekend away this was an exactly what we wanted.

When we arrived the reception staff were very informative and said as it was not busy we could pitch were we liked amongst the touring pitches. We found a pitch, C1, with views out to the bay with a lovely sunset through the trees.

The pitch was fairly level gravel with its own water tap, hook up and TV point.

We didn't use the site facilities but when we checked they were modern and clean.

We used the pool twice during our stay. This included the steam and sauna rooms. There are adult only times if you prefer a quiet swim.

The on site shop was well stocked and opened quite late every evening. We ate in the bar on the first night, not being keen on bar food I was pleasantly surprised at the choice and the food was ok.

There are lots of well marked walks from the site with a leaflet provided by the shop. We walked up Arnside Knot, a bit steep but worth the views. From there we walked into Arnside for lunch. Our walk back took us along the coast to Far Arnside After a days walking it was nice to relax in the pool before dinner.

Other guests said the site can be very crowded in high season due to the amount of statics. We would go back and venture out to the lakes using this site as a base.

We've been going to Holgates for the best part of 30 years but sadly I don't think we'll be returning. It's not because Holgates charge top price but because the touring site is outdated and tired. Push button, fixed temp showers are from the past, Wi-Fi available only at the reception area is not what a modern site should offer and many of the pitches are far from level. It was state of the art 20 years ago but has fell way behind now.

Had 2 night stay here on the way home from Cornwall, what a find ! Lovely site with generous pitches. We chose to have a fully serviced pitch which meant a super fast set up. The site itself was exceptionally pretty with lovely views across the bay and surrounding countryside. The facilities were of a very high standard. The site has a good restaurant bar and leisure pool, with a further extension currently being built( although you would not know building work was happening)completely unobtrusive.

Surrounding area is typical lake district - narrow roads, beautiful scenery and villages. Easy travel distances to Morcambe and the Lakes.

Wish we had had longer to explore and enjoy this site.

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.
