Our Inspector's view

A secluded and heavily wooded park for annual residents, ideally situated on the shores of Lake Windermere. There are high spec pods and safari tents available for hire, including one accessible pod. Also available are 10 self-catering properties – woodland cottages, lake view apartments, and the luxury Waterbird Boathouse, replete with a boat dock and stunning views over Windermere. Pretty lakeside picnic areas, woodland walks and a play area make this a delightful park that is perfect for families and couples looking for a rural escape; there are excellent, fully serviced pitches (seasonal pitches only), a licensed shop and takeaway café, and a heated toilet block – both the ladies' and gents' amenities have quality fittings and very good privacy options. WiFi is available throughout all areas of park.

About the area

Discover Cumbria

Cumbria's rugged yet beautiful landscape is best known for the Lake District National Park that sits within its boundaries. It’s famous for Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, and Derwent Water, ‘Queen of the English Lakes'. This beautiful countryside once inspired William Wordsworth and his home, Dove Cottage, in Grasmere is a popular museum. Another place of literary pilgrimage is Hill Top, home of Beatrix Potter, located near Windermere. Tom Kitten, Samuel Whiskers and Jemima Puddleduck were all created here.

Much of Cumbria is often overlooked in favour of the Lake Distirct. In the south, the Lune Valley remains as lovely as it was when Turner painted it. The coast is also a secret gem. With its wide cobbled streets, spacious green and views of the Solway Firth, Silloth is a fine Victorian seaside resort. Other towns along this coastline include Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport. Carlisle is well worth a look – once a Roman camp, its red-brick cathedral dates back to the early 12th century and its 11th-century castle was built by William Rufus.
