Lake District Caravan Holiday Parks
Lake District holidays are unlike any other in the UK. This beautifully unique region is one of the jewels in the crown of staycations. Distinctive and iconic backdrops await you at every corner when you head on a Lake District caravan holiday. Home to spectacular mountains, huge hillsides and tranquil lakes, there is even a beach or two on the lush locality’s coastline. Our Lakeland Holiday Park situated near to the Lake District National Park is filled with huge home comforts to make your stay memorable. Sitting on picturesque Morecambe Bay, it’s also a short drive from the wonderful Lake Windermere. Fancy bringing your dog? Check out our dog friendly holidays to the Lake District.
Three great things about the Lake District
England’s largest lake is one of the region’s main focal points. Take a guided boat trip to explore it at ease, or pick up a kayak, canoe or paddleboard to truly discover its charms on your own terms.
You’ll find there’s no shortage of trails to explore in this beautiful part of the world. Select a family or dog-friendly route (there are plenty!) or tick off a renowned Wainwright route, which explore the lakes and fells of the region.
Children’s author Beatrix Potter made the Lake District her home, and you’ll find plenty of evidence, from The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction to the Beatrix Potter Gallery. You can also follow in the footsteps of poet William Wordsworth at Wordsworth House and Dove Cottage.
Things to do in the Lake District
Top things to do for
The Lake District is home to some well-known peaks: the Old Man of Coniston or maybe Scafell Pike – the highest point in England. Visit the abandoned mines around Honister and the ruined abbey of Furness. Take a trip to see Dove Cottage and Rydal Mount, both former homes of William Wordsworth. Poetry was not the only writing inspired by the district. The little ones will love the World of Beatrix Potter, where Peter Rabbit and the rest of the gang are brought to full furry life. Or try the Lakes Aquarium or the South Lakes Wild Animal Park. Fly a kite on the beach at Morecambe Bay or get out on the water and try a spot of sailing in Lake Windermere. Less outdoorsy thrill-seekers can head to Blackpool – it's only an hour away.
