As per a lot of the previous reviews the camp site is in exceptional location overlooking Morecombe bay. The village of Silverdale is only a 15 minute walk away (2 x pubs, chemist, post office, newsagents and co-op, no cashpoint, however cash back is available at the co-op) with lots of well marked public footpaths The subtle smell of wild garlic accompanies you everywhere.

There is a large limestone outcrop in the camping field and some woods that keep the children occupied most of the day and night. The site was very full and I would say that there were approx 100 tents and a couple of private parties on rally fields, add to this the seasonal caravans and camper vans, I would estimate over 150-175 units in total on the site, that said it never felt over crowded or uncomfortable.

However as a previous review states the showering and toilet facilities are woefully inadequate which really lets down a potentially superb site.

Sadly some campers decided to light fires which kept the warden on his toes, hard standing caravans and campervans can have fires but no tent users can, this is for safety reasons according to the warden and owners.

To summarise this could be one of the great sites if only it offered an even service to all users and further washing facilities

We've stayed at this campsite over the bank holiday weekend. We have really enjoyed it! We've enjoyed that much that we have booked for a week in August!

We've phoned on the day and still had a space for us! We arrived late in the evening and this was not a problem at all. The tent field was very spacious and are allowed to pitch your tent anywhere you liked on the field.

The shower and toilet block where only a small walk away and where always clean. Basic but all what you need!

We walked over to the see. You had to climb some rocks to get to the path. The path at some stages was very narrow and near cliffs so not recommended for young children.

The where a few small shops and pubs nearby and some supermarket only a short drive away.

The site is clean and the view amazing. Very nice and friendly place to be!

There is no play area for children but there is enough around to play with. It depends on the child if this side suits them.

We are taking a 7 and 4 year old in August and are very confident they will enjoy themselves.

Toilet block is clean and functional. There appears to be only 3 showers (1 mens, 2 ladies) to service the entire site which meant there was always a queue unless you went at midnight.

View is outstanding and the tent fields face the sea. You can pitch 'anywhere' and the ground is level-ish. The beach isn't great. More mud than sand but good for walking into town if you don't mind scrambling over rocks.

Pub (Silverdale Hotel) served decent food at about 8 for fish and chips. Other cheaper and more expensive options available.

It did get noisy due to the number of campers but the kids slept though it so no real bother. 10 a night (six man family tent) is great value although I'd happily pay a bit more for more facilities and stricter (noise) wardens.

Would definitely go back though.

Just returned from a lovely midweek break at Gibratar farm. The views are lovely. We have been there a few times now and much prefer it midweek when there is loads of space and it is lovely and peaceful.

Both pubs in the village are nice the food at the silverdale hotel is fantastic huge portiens and lovely fresh ingredients cooked to perfection. Spent most of my break relaxing reading and looking out across the bay which is one of the nicest views I have seen from any campsite.

This campsite is in a tremendous location, we picked it due to being just over 1 hours drive from home and for the walks in the area.

We had an electric pitch very close to the woods and the walks which was ideal with our two Labradors.

Site wardens very pleasant and helpful.

The shower/loo facilities whilst being nothing special but clean, with two showers in the ladies (one did had a dodgy shower hose, but it didn't bother me too much) and about 5 loos. I didn't have to queue at the times I went.

The walk down to the village takes about 20 mins, and the village has a co-op that is open till 10pm every night. There are also a couple of pubs that allow dogs in the beer garden.

We walked back along the coast, and its spectacular.

There was loads of kids running around having fun, didn't notice late night noise, but did have ear plugs in ;-)

Would I go back, yes, would I recommend it, yes :-)

Just returned from 3 nights at Gibraltar Farm with toddler and 6 year old, and would recommend it.

The country lanes to the site can be a bit hair-raising for novice towers and beware of trusting sat navs. Our's tried to take us up an impossible lane (Crag Lane). When leaving M6 at Junction 35 go through Carnforth town. You have to pass through a farm to enter the site. NB the stewards only accept cash, which was quite embarrassing as I didn't know that.

The site itself is basic no kids play areas and dated toilet blocks. Only 1 shower for men, but water was hot and free, and blocks were cleaned daily.

Our caravan pitch was a very good size with plenty of room for awning on hardstanding area. EHU pitches were well laid out. The non-EHU were more random, but even on bank holiday weekend, they didn't seem to be crammed in.

There are lots of places for kids to climb and explore on the site.

We were given an info sheet on site on arrival, which advised the route to take to the beach. Was a quiet pretty walk but led to a stone wall which had to be climbed (not easy with a young toddler) and we were then faced with a rocky cove. No way our kids could've navigated the rocks to the sand, not without broken ankles anyway. Best to head on into Morecambe for a 'proper' beach.

The sheet also advised of a natural waterfall.This area was very pretty with some good walks but the idea of a 'waterfall' was rather embellished.

It was a short walk into Silverdale village with 2 pubs and convenience store.

The weekend was slightly marred by the noise levels after 10pm, from groups of kids and adults alike. Even though the site stewards were opposite us, there was no attempt to quieten anybody down. Fortunately it didn't go on too late, but still very frustrating.

All in all though a lovely interesting site. Not bog standard field, a great location for walking, great views / surroundings and very reasonably priced at 15 per night for caravan, EHU, awning, 2 adults and 2 kids.

Will be returning.

This site is in cracking location, with stunning views. Great for the kids with rocks, woods and even a couple of caves to explore. Facilities nice and clean with plenty of hot water.

Only one minus is that on the tent field you are not allowed campfires /firepits yet on caravan side its ok? Talking to the warden he said that tents may not be allowed on site in the future due to a dispute with the council this would be a great loss to campers who use tents, lets hope it is resolved in our favour.

Will be returning in the summer

We arrived in not too good weather. Traditional British by the coast. Dull and windy! We were camping in a tent.

The wardens were helpful and friendly. They had details of local walks and were eager to help. There were regular patrols from the warden on his quad during the day to check the site.

Facilities were very basic but the toilet block was cleaned regularly. It was too cold for most of us to attempt to shower due to lack of heating and the old building.

It is a working farm and it was nice to take the kids to look at the calves and lambs. There are lovely coastal views and plenty of nice walks nearby. They also liked the ice creams! The site would benefit from a shop selling the basics.

The prices reflect the facilities to be fair and we would consider returning for a weekend in the summer months. You probably get what you pay for here.

We had the pleasure of staying at Gibraltar Farm for our first family camping trip in our new tent, after a recommendation from a friend.

We had the most wonderful time!

We were a family of seven for our weekend break! (Nanny, Granddad, Me, Dad, and 3 kids ages 6, 4 and 3 - with a large tent and 2 cars.)

Directions to the site are excellent and we were made welcome on arrival by the on site warden and we were able to choose our own pitch in the large tent field. The farm is next to the coast and the views out into Morcambe bay are beautiful and the sunrises and the sunsets were wonderful to see.

It's 20+ yrs since I last camped and I was very pleased with the washing and toilet / bathroom facilities. There's free hot water on demand for dishwashing and bathing and a large family shower room was a blessing! Despite being away from the site most of the Saturday we saw the toilet block being cleaned thoroughly twice - they were lovely and clean and never without tissue and soap!

We walked the 15/20 min footpath along the coast to Silverdale village, admiring the views and watching guided bay walks. The village is small but has ample facilities - 2 pubs serving food - recommend the roast in the Royal Oak. The post office and newsagents, co-op, and butchers were used by us - very friendly staff in all. We walked back to the site through the village - lovely houses to look at for those nosey ones of you!

There's a great view to be had all the way to Lancaster and Heysham from Giants' Pepperpot just north of the village.

The site sells it's own home made ice cream - I can certainly recommend the Irish cream - delicious!

Our three children had the most wonderful amount of freedom and spent the whole weekend running, climbing, hiding and exploring and did not want to come home! I felt they were very safe and the other seasonal campers made us all feel looked after and welcome - we were even invited to join in the camp fire night and conker fights!

We will definitely return at the earliest opportunity.

I am glad to take the time to write this review as a thankyou for our fabulous weekend.

I've visited Gibraltar Farm 7 times this summer and have enjoyed every trip. 1st time was in May, and then it's been every 2-3 weeks.

Most were taken with the same set of friends. Everyone who has been thought it was a great location. The views over Morecambe Bay on a clear day are fantastic.

I can only echo what most people have said about the facilities, such as queueing for showers, very clean toilets, etc. We got past this by just going for a shower a bit later!

My friends and I are already looking forward to plenty of visits next year!
