Cheeky overnighter in Silverdale, Lancashire

Decided on a little overnight stay at Gibraltar Farm Campsite, Silverdale this weekend

We got a lovely, flat pitch with a cracking view looking out over the south east coast of Morecambe Bay.  A bit of a strong breeze at times but beautiful sunshine and managed to grab an hour or so of rays B-)

The site is situated on a working farm with calves and spring lambies.  There are also a number of friendly hens wandering by the site, and into caravans/motorhomes if they feel the urge.

Cycled a short distance into the centre of Silverdale and visited a pub recommended to us called The Woodlands.  It’s not somewhere you would stumble upon without knowing where it was but we’re so glad we went.  ‘Woodys’ is a quirky little place in an unusual setting, and Bri was impressed with the selection of ales and thought it’d be rude not to sample a few.  Also called into the Silverdale Hotel for a swift one while we waited to collect a takeaway from the local Cinnamon Spice Indian restaurant.  We took it back to Jolly to eat and have to say it was one of the best curries we’ve had.  Check it out!

After a breakfast in the sunshine, some friends came to see us just as we were packing up to head home.  They’re big fans of this site and regular visitors.  We will also definitely return.  As for now …. next stop is Suzie’s hometown of Clitheroe in a fortnight.
