A proud, ancient county, Lancashire’s landscape is as diverse as it is beautiful. From the sweeping, mysterious Ribble Valley in the Pennine border country to the unspoilt vastness of Morecambe Bay, there’s more than enough stunning landscape to explore during your getaway.
So, if you’re after a mountain biking break in the Forest of Bowland or traditional seaside fun, our three holiday parks in the county can cater for your every need. Regent Bay Holiday Park in Morecambe features a heated indoor pool and a fully stocked bar, while just along the coast in the pretty village of Heysham, our Ocean Edge Holiday Park offers a sauna and an outdoor play park - the choice is yours.
Our venue for a Pennine getaway, Todber Valley Holiday Park, boasts serene views over the Ribble Valley and is a perfect staging post for trips over to the Yorkshire towns of Skipton and Harrogate.

Traditionally British seaside fun for the whole family
Watching the sunset over Morecambe Bay is one of the most beautiful sights you could hope to see on the west coast of the UK. On a clear day, you can even make out the faint outline of the Isle of Man, and of course the dramatic natural skyline of the Lake District.
Further inland, the Ribblehead Viaduct at Ingleton is well worth a visit, as it’s a stunning example of Victorian engineering set in a dramatic landscape.
The view is only half the fun at Blue Flag beach, Morecambe Bay, as Morecambe’s own beach is a great destination for the whole family, providing some classic British seaside fun. Within easy distance of both Morecambe holiday parks, it’s the perfect base for your holiday.
The resort of Blackpool is also under an hour’s drive away if you fancy a change of scenery or a trip up the famous tower.
Things to do and see are never in short supply in Lancashire. The Pendle Witches Treasure Trail, amongst the trees and hills of the Pennines, is a particularly beguiling day out that involves cracking 22 clues to solve a mystery inspired by the historic Pendle Witches.
Towards the coast, you’re always guaranteed a great day out at Blackpool Pleasure Beach if you decide to make the trip! From petting zoos to model villages and beyond, click the link below to explore Lancashire’s full variety of attractions.

Morecambe Bay is a seafood lover’s paradise, so make sure you sample some of the locally caught potted shrimp and oysters at eateries such as the Midland Hotel in the town.
The Pennines is a hotspot for good old British real ale, and you’ll find this and top notch pub grub in the huge variety of country pubs in the area - not forgetting our own Steamer Inn at Todber Valley!
