I have visited and stayed at this site on numerous occasions. It is a fabulous site - the best I have ever stayed on. Cannot find anything to fault it. Used to bring the children here when they were little and now my daughter and her partner hire a caravan every year and just love it. Even Jasper her little Spitz dog enjoys it as well.

We have just returned from our first visit to holgates holiday park. I was very impressed with all the facilities. I have been to other sites that have 5 stars but holgates deserve theirs, the toilets were spotless at all times, the pool changing rooms were the same. My granddaughter 4 and grandson 2 both loved the pool, my only complaint is that the pool could of being a bit warmer, but thats my personal choice. The surroundins were outstanding and the pitches were well thought out and we liked the fact that you could chose your own and not allocated one. We are planning on returning soon and would recommend this site if you like stunning surroundings and peace and quite.

This is a very nice site, very professionally run, the loo's and shower blocks where immaculate and well thought out. The pool area and cafe etc. were very pleasant although if you do not have children you might find it a bit noisy during the day time.

We have a 2 year old which can make touring hard work but this site, the staff and the amenities at this site made for a very enjoyable stay for all of us.

Unlike a number of sites we have stayed at here ALL the staff were friendly, helpful and genuinely seemed to want to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We will defiantly be going back

What a wonderful site. Next to the coast, surrounded by glorious countryside, I wish I'd discovered this part of the North West years ago - you can still be in the lakes in about 30 minutes but you're away from the crowds. Silverdale is a gorgeous little village that you can walk to with a proper butcher and greengrocer as well as nice pubs and a restaurant.
We were lucky, we had good weather but if we hadn't we would have been happy to spend quite a lot of time in the immaculate pool and spa centre - they had really lovely changing rooms, lifeguards were constantly on duty and it wasn't crowded.
I was thrilled to be able to get a decent latte in the cafe and my husband enjoyed sampling the local beers. We were able to let the children just go off and explore which they loved, the site feels very safe and there's an indoor play area as well. The other people that we met staying there were all very nice. As other people have said - you certainly get what you pay for.

A clean well maintained site, when the weather was good we went walking, when it rained we relaxed in the spa centre, we enjoyed the adults only hour in the pool area. The pitches all have their own tap , waste water drain & electric, so no need to carry water. The pitches are on stone chips which was very noisy on sunday morning when many people were packing up & had to keep walking around their units. Private sink units in the toilet blocks were good. shop fairly well stocked, Number plate recognition at the barrier so no keys needed. One of the more expensive sites but I can see why they charge more as this is a high class site, but still take your torch as the lighting is not very good at night time.

Sited in a nice part of Lancashire. Beautiful surroundings. Pitches on gravel as opposed to hard standings. All pitches a long way from reception/entertainment. Bar area is attached to pool, reminded me of a local pool complex. No entertainment. No relaxing area. Very expensive for what you get. Much better value on numerous sites within Lancashire and Cumbria. Would not recommend.
