About the employer

Silverdale is Holgates’ flagship park. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty amid over 100 acres of woodland and countryside, our caravan park overlooks the sweeping vista of Morecambe Bay and welcomes holidaymakers from far and wide. Whether you’re looking for a base for your touring caravan or tent, planning a break in one of our holiday homes to hire or quirky camping pods, or are in the market for your own holiday home, we’ve got just the spot…. There’s always plenty to do – stroll along the coast, find a spot for a picnic, enjoy a swim in the pool or relax in the sauna. Children are safe to roam or let off steam in the games room and soft play area as well as the two outdoor adventure playgrounds. A small shop supplies most things you’ll need during your stay, but there’s no need to cook - the restaurant and bar serve meals and snacks all day. With the centre of Silverdale only a short walk away, and Arnside just under two miles away, you’ll be spoilt for choice for browsing and shopping. And if you fancy venturing further afield, Holgates is within an hour’s drive of the Lakes, the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland.
