Facebook and TripAdvisor Reviews

We’ve had the pleasure of welcoming thousands of guests to our Lake District holiday park this year. After such a difficult 18 months, it’s been fantastic to have people back on site enjoying our accommodation, facilities and all the Lake District has to offer.

As the busy season draws to an end, we’ve taken some time to compile a small selection of our online reviews. They celebrate our re-opening and praise our hard working team who have worked tirelessly throughout the summer.


Touring Motorhomes Park Cliffe Lake District

Spacious touring pitches

Our touring pitches have been put to good use this year, with plenty of caravan, motorhome and campervan visitors enjoying a Lake District holiday over the course of the season. It’s been wonderful to see families spending quality time together on park, while enjoying a well-earned break after such a difficult year.

Touring visitors have praised our generous pitch size, park layout and proactive approach to stopping the spread of Covid-19 in their online reviews. They’ve also commended our hard-standing pitch facilities, which include electric, water and parking as standard.


“2 night stop over for me, my husband & 2 noisy terriers! The site was very well looked after. All the pitches were clearly marked and had access to water and electricity. Friendly, helpful staff. Shower/toilet block spotless, and a great pint in the bar with quick service. Overall a great stay (exception to the weather!!). Wouldn’t hesitate in staying again if up that way again”.

“Had a lovely 4 night break in our caravan and we were delighted with our first stay at this site. Lovely layout and generous pitch sizes. All the staff were extremely helpful and Covid security measures were exceptional with very high level of cleaning. As soon as any caravan pitches or pods were vacated, a member of staff was round wiping the water/electric posts & pods were fogged. Really felt comfortable and safe. Looking forward to next time in July”!

Park Cliffe Lake District Family Camping pitches

Lake District camping site

Park Cliffe is considered one of the best campsites in the Lake District thanks to our scenic tent pitches. From our camping ground, guests can enjoy far-reaching views over Windermere and stunning sunsets as the sun dips behind the fells.

We have two campsites to choose from – each with a slightly different offering. Ghyllside has electric hook up and requires pitches to be reserved in advance, whereas Fellside takes a more relaxed approach, allowing you to choose your camping spot on arrival.

Both receive rave reviews from our guests, with many returning to make the most of our idyllic location year on year. Guests with children have praised by the space on offer and visitors with dogs are impressed by access to scenic walks.


“We camped on Fell side, which just has beautiful views and loads of space for the children and dog. Camping here is fantastic. The facilities are spotless”.

shepherds hut in the Lake District

Quirky glamping accommodation

At Park Cliffe we go to great lengths to meet our customers’ expectations. Over the past couple of years there’s been increasing demand for glamping accommodation in the Lake District, so we’ve expanded our offering to include camping pods and a handcrafted shepherd’s hut.

This year we unveiled the Deluxe Camping Pod – our most luxurious glamping option yet. Complete with a bathroom, kitchenette and stargazing windows, it’s been a fantastic addition to our self-catering accommodation and a roaring success as you’d expect.

Glamping is a fantastic option for couples and families wanted to spend time in nature without the hassle of putting up a tent. Guests really enjoy the experience and have given lovely feedback on the cosy and clean interiors.


“We have been to this lovely site for the last 3 years. We stayed in a family plus camping pod with 2 adults, 1 year old and 5 year old. The children loved the camping pod and we all had a fantastic time. Everything spotlessly clean and lovely grounds+ playground”.

– Jessica flatley, TripAdvisor


“The pod was cosy and roomy with plenty of storage space. The on site toilet and shower facilities are immaculate (private bookable bathrooms are available but we didn’t use this time”.

Lake District Holiday Cottage

Stylish self-catering cottage

Our modern well-equipped holiday cottage was put to good use this year, with plenty of families using it as a base from which to explore the lakes. The holiday cottage has been a real hit with families, who have complimented the luxury interior and submitted glowing reviews post stay.

The cottage is set in scenic grounds and available for week long stays and short breaks in low season. It is furnished to a high standard with homely soft furnishings and home comforts such as books and children’s games.

Best of all, guests have access to Park Cliffe facilities, which include a children’s play area and delicious bar and restaurant, just a short walk away.

Comfy static caravans

We’ve received some lovely reviews from guests staying in our 2 and 3 bed static caravans this summer. These well-equipped holiday homes are an excellent choice for visitors wanting a relaxing base to unwind during a Lake District holiday. They each have a patio area with picnic bench to dine alfresco in the summer months. As you’ll see from the reviews they’re perfect for couples or families with children.


“Beautiful site. Spotless, excellently maintained and our 2 bedroom caravan was like a new pin inside. Very well equipped, we wanted for nothing. We would love to return here when everything is up and running again as it appears to have great on-site facilities”.
