Our Inspector's view

A quality touring park with neat, hardstanding pitches (all are fully serviced) in a grassy glade within the wooded grounds of an elegant Georgian mansion, just a short distance from the shores of Ullswater. The toilet facilities are clean and well maintained. The lounge bar, with a separate family room, enjoys lake views and now serves bar meals during the season. A path leads to Ullswater, and Dalemain House and Gardens, Pooley Bridge and Aira Force waterfall are all close by. Wooden glamping pods and Hive Cabins (for two adults and two children) are available for hire. Please note that there is no access via Dacre.

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.
