6 Brig­house Bay Holiday Park

Practical Caravan - - Travel County Counsel -

Of the four holiday parks run by Gille­spie Leisure on the Sol­way Coast, this is the most ac­tion-packed and is per­fect for a week or two of fun and ad­ven­ture.

The park has a host of ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing a leisure cen­tre, swim­ming pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, fit­ness room, bowl­ing green, games room, play­ground, tod­dlers’ area, bar and a bistro that over­looks the swim­ming pool. That should keep every­one busy!

If that isn’t enough, there’s also a ful­l­length and a shorter golf course, a rid­ing cen­tre, quad bike hire, a boat­ing pond and plenty of tourist in­for­ma­tion, should you find time to leave the site.

Fa­cil­i­ties for tourers are also plen­ti­ful, with two toi­let blocks. The larger one has toi­lets and show­ers, fam­ily cu­bi­cles and a dis­abled-friendly shower room. The sec­ond block is uni­sex with in­di­vid­ual cu­bi­cles. There’s also a fam­ily bath­room with dis­abled ac­cess. All needs are catered for here.

As much as this park is packed with things to do, there’s also a gen­tle, re­lax­ing side to it, be­cause the site is sur­rounded by 1200 acres of coun­try­side – it re­ally is out in the sticks – and has views across the Ir­ish Sea. The penin­sula is a wildlife haven and there are plenty of re­lax­ing coastal walks to choose from when the weather’s good.
