At Silver Glades we aim to make our Park and facilities as accessible as we can. We warmly welcome all guests, regardless of difference and or disability. If you have any particular requirements, we are happy to discuss them with you and find solutions where we can. However, as we are a comparatively small Park, we may not be able to meet everyone’s requirements but we usually know of other sites that may be able to help.
Our formal Access Statement is set out below for information but we are always willing to do what we can to help; please feel free to contact us if there’s anything you would like to discuss.
Our aim is to ensure that we make our guests feel welcome and provide them with a positive experience, in line with our literature and promotional material. As Silver Glades is family-run and since we live on site, we can offer a personal, friendly and responsive service, designed to make holidays here as stress-free as possible. To this end, we do all we can to accommodate guests with additional or special needs.
* Silver Glades Caravan Park is a peaceful site with ten static caravans for hire which are situated in 3.5 acres of garden/woodland.
* The website is comprehensive and very easy to use.
* An excerpt from the website, together with tariff and booking form, can be sent to guests who do not find the Internet easy to use or who do not have it.
* We can be contacted by telephone, email or letter and respond to enquiries using these methods. For environmental reasons, we are increasingly trying to send fewer letters but will always acknowledge by post, if requested to do so.
