Spring butterfly hunt in Holgates Silverdale Park, Cumbria

Community and ForumBlogSpring butterfly hunt in Holgates Silverdale Park, Cumbria

How to spend the Easter weekend? Hunting butterflies, obviously. Holgates Silverdale Park in Cumbria offers you to get your family together and enjoy the amazing spring bloomy nature.

Holgates Silverdale Park which is wonderfully embedded in the Cumbrian picturesque countryside was recently awarded the “England and Overall AA Campsite of the Year”. Whatsoever it's titled, each spring local butterflies and moths wake up as usual. The park invites to a special “Butterfly Walk” in which you can meet rare species such as the Duke of Burgundy (Hamearis lucina) and High Brown Fritillary (Argynnis adippe). The very April is a perfect time to watch them in their natural habitat, woodland around Silverdale.

During the Easter holidays the park also holds its annual “Easter Egg Hunt” that encourages everyone to take part in discovering new tracks and creating new routes, whether by foot or bike.

For those who aren't enough with butterflies even rarest, there is the on-site spa, heated pool, sauna and steam room. Mad Maxes can compete in the gym, games room, outdoor adventure area and soft play area for kids. A shop, restaurant and bar might not be right places to hunt the Duke of Burgundy, but surely good ones to find someone who will be happy to know the latest butterfly news.

The Easter getaway to Holgates Silverdale Park costs £40 per night for a family of four, on a fully serviced pitch for a tent, caravan or motorhome, which includes use of the leisure facilities. You may also hire a holiday home, for weekend or longer. The booking information and contacts are at the park website: http://www.holgates.co.uk.
