A short walk from Bay View, along the canal path, brings you to the pretty village of Bolton-le-Sands. Here you can shop at the friendly local butchers, whose meat and eggs are sourced from local farms. There is also a 'Spar and Potts Pies', an award winning pie shop. In addition to the new on-site bar and restaurant, there are also 3 popular pubs in the village, as well as a Chinese, an Indian and a Vietnamese restaurant.

Walking in the other direction along the coast, you will find plenty of places to stop for coffee and home-made cakes. The Potting Shed at Bay View Garden Centre is only 10 minutes away and a little further on is Archers at Red Bank Farm.

The seaside town of Morecambe is 3 miles away and is currently undergoing a period of regeneration, with lots of new shops, restaurants and coffee bars.
There is nowhere better than sitting on the golden coloured sands, looking across the bay at the glorious views of the Lakes mountains.

Historic Lancaster, with its two universities, is a city of learning and a city of stories. It is a city where the past and the present blend. Splendid stone facades hark back to its heyday as a Georgian port and quirky independent shops rub shoulders with a smattering of well-known stores. Museums and monuments are enjoyed by old and young, and bars and restaurants bustle with locals.

For miles and miles around is rolling countryside, dotted with sleepy villages, pretty ports and quiet bays.

Kendal - The 'Gateway to the Lakes' is only 15 miles away, and provides good shopping facilities, including a market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Kendal has a theatre and cinema, a 13th Century parish church, Abbot Hall Art Gallery, a museum offering a glimpse of Lakeland life throughout the ages – and mint cake – lots of it.

The Lake District - has beautiful landscapes around the Lakes, which are favourites among walkers, while the forests, fells and waterways provide the setting for many sporting activities. Visit historic villages and famous locations such as the former homes of Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin and the poet Wordsworth.

never before have i been so embarrassed and humiliated, an employee on leaving this park who stated outside and very rudely in a very loud voice that we had left the static caravan which we had hired for the weekend in a mess we had infact tidied the van before leaving, not the point she treated us like dirt and i will never go back there nor will i reccomend this park to any of my friends or enemies!!!!! very angry and upset totally ruined what had been a good holiday. we have stayed at holgates silverdale over a period of 7 years in our own caravan and have always felt welcome before now

Reply by Bay View Holiday Park (Holgates):

The housekeeping team take immense pride in maintaining the very highest standards in our holiday homes but obviously such comments are completely unacceptable and will be addressed strongly with the team concerned.We apologise sincerely for any upset caused by their indiscretion on this occasion
