Why not enter some details and get an accurate price?

General

  • Ideally located for exploring the Northern Lakes and Hadrian's Wall
  • Within walking distance of Silloth and close to the Galloway Hills
  • Kids' clubs, play centres, bars and pool with spa

Off to the Northern Lakes, the Scottish Borders or Hadrian's Wall – and want a park with heaps to do on site for your little centurions?

Nearby Solway Holiday Village should fit the bill, as it's a Hagans Leisure Park packed with activities and is close to the England/Scotland border with opps for many days out in either land: it's within walking distance of Victorian seaside town Silloth on the Solway Firth with over 20 miles of coastline to cast off at, close to kitesurfing and windsurfing at Allonby and just a quick hop around the Firth to Scotland’s Galloway Hills.

The park is spread spaciously over 130 acres of good-looking parkland which has heaps of things to do for all sizes and tastes: kids can submerge themselves in the kids’ club and outdoor and indoor play centre, while the whole family can dive into the all-weather sports facilities, family bars, entertainment complex with Sky Sports and fabulous heated indoor pool with spa. Entertainment passes for the indoor pool and children's club are included in the pitch price.

Not sure where to start? Pile the crew into Solway’s tourist train for a squint around: you’ll also spot the amusement arcade and tennis courts (small charge applies), and up to date amenities including free heated showers, covered dishwashing area, water points, coin launderette, bistro and takeaway.

If you’re bringing your tent, tourer or motorhome to Solway, the touring area is only five minutes’ walk from reception and is flat and grassy with car parking available beside each pitch.

This site is a member of Hagans Leisure group.

    The surrounding area and silloth village. Staff were friendly. Facilities were ok and cleaned regular but the toilets smelt awful

    Disliked: 

    The holiday site. Stony pitches or water logged pitches. Don't know how the tent stayed up as the pegs very hardly in the ground. Letting people pitch 3 tents right at the side of it's at 10.30pm was ridiculous and so noisy from certain groups. Won't stay in a holiday site again will stay on a normal camp site. Toilets smelly

    Disliked: 

    No support on evenings for loud, drunk campers.
    No cut off time for noise like other sites ( people drinking and waking kids up at 2am ).
    Only 3 toilets for the whole site.
    Showers at pool trickle out so unable to wash properly.
    Pitches were level but very waterlogged.
    Camp site in general is very dated and in desperate need of modernisation.

    Disliked: 

    Site is dated, some really run down areas around the site. Noise was not controlled after 12pm, no family changing in the pool which made it awkward, site shop did not sell alcohol, pitches were rather muddy. Toilet block needed revamp, the push taps did not stay on and there was no liquid soap, just bars of manky soap left on the basin.

Would I return not too sure 28/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    The camping wardens and maintenance guys were readily available to help which in my case was most needed they had to pull me out of the ground when I got stuck with the tractor
    Entertainment staff worked hard to keep everyone happy lots of games and interaction

    Disliked: 

    The ground is so wet no drainage so all the camping site was a muddy mess where cars and vans had become bogged down.
    Only one water point as you entered which meant once my Motorhome tank emptied I had a number of treks to refill.
    Toilets need expanding to cope with the amount of campers 4 toilets in block was not enough at times for the amount of people on site
    Entertainment complex children keeping tables for adults who never arrived until after 8-45 in time for bingo so many families who had arrived with young children standing around
    Queues for bar upto 25 minutes could do with extra staff people getting large orders to save waiting
    Lovely idea to give kids a sweet but little ones and lollipops on a dance floor are a recipe for disaster

    I love coming to Solway. The park and facilities are always clean. The staff are always friendly and happy to help. The town is lovely. The pitches are very good (when they are not water logged due to bad weather) .

Lovely site and facilities but poor camping pitches. 21/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    The Swimming pool and leisure facilities are great, Silloth village is beautiful.

    Disliked: 

    On arrival we were told to pick our own tent pitch and to avoid boggy areas. We were unaware of there being no drainage on the camp site. On night 3 we were flooded after a long downpour along with 90% of the campers. I phoned the very unhelpful out of hours helpline and asked if we could be housed for the night due to all of us being cold and wet. I was told nobody could open reception and nothing was available (which there was ) and was told I could camp down in the communal toilet block or shower room. The next day I complained and got an apology from the manager but was told the flooding was due to the site being an old concrete RAF base with no drainage and pitches that are at or below sea level. I asked about compensation but none was offered. We left the same day as no pitches were suitable so only stayed 3 nights out of 7. I feel we should of been made aware of the lack of drainage problems.

Local attractions

Sites near borders are among our very faves, as it’s easy to country hop and get the best of both lands within a short drive.

On the English side of the Firth, Solway guests can reach the north-western lakes of the Lake District National Park, day trips to Carlisle and the hills and stargazing of Northumberland National Park; on the Scottish side, all the delights of Dumfries and Galloway such as hiking the Galloway Hills, running away to Gretna or driving further afield to urbane days out at Edinburgh or Glasgow.

(To see it all at once, take a trip to championship Solway Golf Course where you can tee around to views of the Lakeland Fells, Galloway Hills and across to the Isle of Man.)

Lake District land and water fans have Buttermere, Loweswater, Crummock Water and Bassenthwaite Lake among the Northern Lakes close to Solway Holiday Village, each with their own popular pulls for visitors. Bassenthwaite, one of the biggest bodies of water in the Lake District, is a hit with windsurfers, canoeists and sailors launching dinghies from Bassenthwaite Sailing Club.

Buttermere has a circular route (of about four miles) around its shores; those with more energy can head to Crummock Water instead for a nine mile walk around the lake and through the Lanthwaite Woods. South of Crummock Water and back towards Buttermere, look out for Scale Force, the Lake District’s tallest waterfall at 170 feet.

Speaking of scaling, heady types also visit the Lake District to scale Scafell Pike and the like inland from Buttermere and its neighbours; tourist info is available locally, or take a most scenic drive through the park to the thoroughly modern visitor centre at Windermere and info on all things Lakes.

Moseying towards Northumberland (stop off at Carlisle Castle and The Lanes shopping centre on the way), friends, Romans and countrymen can walk as much of the Hadrian’s Wall Path as they can manage: it’s the north of England’s most visited tourist attraction and most of it runs along the Solway Firth on its way to Northumberland.

Natch you’ll come across several Roman sites along the way, such as the fort of Chesters near Chollerford and the fort at Vercovicium, or be a very determined walker indeed and veer off to other historic paths on the intersecting Pennine Way.

Happily for such a family-centred site, kiddish fun is all around Solway Holiday Village too: farm park Orton Grange, getting open-mouthed at the fish and other inhabitants at Lake District Coast Aquarium, or going on a hop around award-winning World of Beatrix Potter.

Must see

  • John Paul Jones Cottage Museum & Visitor Centre (8.3 miles)
  • World Famous Old Blacksmith's Shop Centre (15.4 miles)
  • Robert Burns Centre (16.2 miles)
