Silverglades

Silverglades is our idyllic site, close to the beautiful village of Silverdale about 10 miles north of Lancaster and close to Morecambe Bay.

The gateway to Silverglades – a few yards off, but not visible from, the public road. We will provide you with directions!

There are ten acres of natural woodland where you can relax in one of the smaller clearings, where you will probably not see another person.

The larger clearing beside the clubhouse is partly set aside as a wild flower meadow but the main lawn may be used for socialising, or maybe a picnic or barbecue.

It is an ideal place to lie in the sun, maybe even a walk along our woodland trails.

Whichever part of Silverglades you visit you will have peace and quiet. There is a communal area on the main lawn to meet other club members. There is plenty of space for reading, relaxing, sleeping, quiet reflection or wildlife watching. We have rare species of butterfly, colourful dragonfly, rabbits, squirrels, and the occasional visit from deer. We have been working with Butterfly Conservation to make Silverglades Butterfly friendly. For those that fancy a day away from the site, we are ideally situated for visits to Leighton Moss nature reserve or for walkers wishing to explore the many local paths (OS Explorer map OL 7)

Our facilities are few, just a small clubhouse , barbecue and picnic tables.

The site requires self sufficiency from members and visitors. There are clearings suitable for camping under canvas and up to medium sized caravans or campers, due to mild access restrictions, but cannot provide electrical hookups or piped water/waste.

Perfect for a few days peace and quiet! What we have in plenty is  tranquillity, and beautiful surroundings.  The night sky, when clear, is amazing as we have little light pollution here.

Although we have no on-site services, we are just a stroll away from RSPB Leighton Moss nature reserve and visitor centre with its excellent cafe (open to non-RSPB members). Gibraltar Farm campsite (Textile) is only a mile away for anyone with a larger caravan or campervan, or for anyone who wants hot showers, flushing loos etc.

Before visiting us you may wish to read the Site information for visitors to Silverglades and check out the Photo gallery

A good time for your first visit is one of the Silverdale Saturdays (usually the second Saturday of the month, from March to October, when committee members can be guaranteed to be present) or the Silverglades Open Day , usually the second Saturday in June

Bring everything that you need, leave nothing but foot prints, take nothing but memories

  1. Thank you for taking the time to show me around your site. It was really idyllic and just the ideal place.
    Hopefully sort out a membership and no doubt see you again.

  2. We really enjoyed your introduction to Silverglades!!! And your company!!! As you saw, we continued to have a very special afternoon in the lovely weather.

  3. Hello Martin,
    We enjoyed our visit to Silverglades this week from Weds to Friday. The weather was variable but we enjoyed lots of walks out. We parked our caravan easily and there were no issues with access. We were the only visitors until we were leaving on Friday afternoon when P arrived and we had a brief chat. So, very quiet and restful.

  4. How nice it was just to be at Silverglades sitting in the sun for a while. It is a very special place.

    Best regards,
    A
