General

  • Ideally located for exploring the Northern Lakes and Hadrian's Wall
  • Within walking distance of Silloth and close to the Galloway Hills
  • Animal farm, 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, animal farm, 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.

    Loved the site and would definitely go back..reception staff were lovely and shower block and toilets was clean and well maintained as was the site. Kids loved the pool and Gary Barlow act was great .

    Disliked: 

    Didn't like the fact that the toilets were shared in bistro bar..do think they should be separate. Also trying to get served in the on site shop was a nightmare..twice waited 15 min to be served and ended up putting our stuff back as there was no one about to serve us.

    We had a great time from arriving at reception and being welcomed by friendly staff to meeting Clive who directed us to our pitch. Clive was wonderful he really went out of his way to make us feel welcome. I've been to many places in the past and I think it's always the staff that make the difference. Even had a chance to meet his wife and dogs which I must say were wonderful. Although we had no dog or friends did and the site is really dog friendly. They truly made our trip as we had forgotten something and they helped us out. My kids and our two others family's that joined us really enjoyed our stay. Campsite was run professionally and Clive really looked after the guests. Even sat down with my kids and spent a good 15 min entertaining them (which you don't find anywhere else). I will definitely be coming back. Pool was great and I've read reviews about the changing rooms being cold but we didn't think so. The weather was great and like I said Clive made our stay. Gave us options on our pitch even though the place was packed being a bank holiday. He came and checked everything was ok many times and was the most helpful and friendly person you can come across. Really want to thank the staff especially Clive hope you enjoyed us as much as we did you. We felt like we were welcome from the first moment we arrived but to be honest it was Clive and his family and dogs in the tents area who made it exceptional. Thanks Clive from all of us over bank holiday weekend. We will be back thanks to your great service.

  • Liked: 

    Location was very good near the coast with great views of Scotland.
    Plenty of open space although the site was not full at the time of our visit.
    Level pitches and clean facilities.
    Refurbished park for the kids which was good

    Disliked: 

    Bar Prices very expensive pay less in City Centre Bars.
    Very little information on activities and where they were located.
    Family entertainment was very loud. So loud in fact that we had to leave.

    Nearest supermarket is about 10 miles away but there is a Co-op about a 20 minute walk away.

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)
