Our Inspector's View

A lovely site with breathtaking views across Ullswater, and less than 20 minutes away by car there are access points to some of the best fell walking in the Lake District; maps of walks closer by are provided by the site including the 20-mile circular Ullswater Way that passes the impressive 20-metre high Aira Force. Caravans, motorhomes and tents enjoy very good level terraced pitches, and at the top of the site there are camping pods and comfortable Hobbit Holes for hire. This is a site justifiably proud of its green credentials; they have a biomass boiler that heats all the water for their well-appointed toilet block. Free Wi-Fi is available across the whole site, and there is also a shop and a popular bar.

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.
