Enjoy your camping, motorhome and caravan holidays in the Lake District at Silecroft Holiday Park.

You get the best of both worlds at Silecroft Holiday Park – a backdrop of Cumbrian fells whilst being sited on the Cumbrian coast, within walking distance (five minutes) of mile-upon-mile of sandy beach. The holiday park is sited in the sleepy village of Silecroft, on the southwestern edge of the Lake District National Park, with views overlooking the Irish Sea and the Isle of Man. The vast beach area is a mixture of sand and, behind, grassland heath – a dog walker's paradise. Indeed dogs will be spoilt for choice between that and fell walking up nearby Black Combe.

If you want to be more active you too are spoilt for choice, with two riding stables that are less than half a mile away. A ride along the beach is highly recommended. For the golf enthusiast a nine-hole golf course borders the park. Families who seek a more challenging holiday can be sure that leisure activities in this part of the country will tick all their boxes. Park-based staff are on hand to help you schedule a range of activities including pony trekking, mountain biking, sailing, kayaking, abseiling, climbing and guided walking. Alternatively you can just relax around the indoor heated swimming pool, jacuzzi and spa, or work up an appetite in the gym before strolling to the village pub for a locally sourced Cumberland sausage and chips, or simply lounge on the beach that never gets overcrowded.

And it's not only the beach that never gets crowded. Silecroft is a perfect base for exploring one of the least busy areas of the Lake District. Head north to visit the charming village of Ravenglass and hop on the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway for a steam experience into the heart of Eskdale. Visit Wastwater, to see what is considered to be one of Britain's finest views or take the short drive to Haverigg, another equally charming fishing village five miles south of Silecroft that includes a restored lighthouse and the RSPB's Hodbarrow Reserve lagoon, home to a multitude of wading birds.

Apart from January and February the park provides a long-term holiday experience for holiday caravan owners. Alternatively if you want to visit the park for a short stay then holiday caravans can be rented from spring through to autumn, plus there are touring and seasonal pitches available for touring caravans, tents and motorhomes.

All of the newer holiday home models, including those for rent, come with the latest facilities including double glazing, central heating, an en suite WC, a shower room, a fully equipped kitchen, a TV and your own outside space in which to lounge and soak up the sun. The opportunity to purchase caravans both old and new is available throughout the year. A visit to the park’s website will provide you with a chance to view what’s currently on offer.

As a holiday homeowner or a visitor with short-term hire, guests appreciate the friendly atmosphere and the great welcome the park provides. Regular events are arranged that are designed to bring everyone together including cheese and wine parties, charity fundraising events and numerous leisure activities organised by the park management team. Previous events have included a Masquerade Ball, golf competitions, quiz nights and coffee mornings.
