Tourers & Motorhomes FAQs

Where is the nearest caravan accessory shop?

Bardsea Leisure, at Ulverston, is the closest and around 13 miles from the park. It has an extensive range of accessories.

Can I store my van at Park Cliffe??

We do not have a storage facility, but out of the main season you can leave your van unoccupied during the week for £7 per night, and just pay full price at the weekends, subject to availability. Maximum stay 2 weeks.  We also offer a limited number of full seasonal pitches and for shorter stays have special monthly rates (not applicable June/July/August).

What is access to the site like??

If our directions to Park Cliffe are followed, there is no problem. Please do not follow sat nav, as it routes you along some quite narrow back roads. If approaching from the north (from Bowness) you will have to go past our road end and turn round elsewhere, as it is a sharp, switch back turning.

What is in the private bathrooms??

Included in the private bathrooms there is:

  • a full size bath with shower attachment, (shower attachment is for rinsing only, it is not a stand-up shower).
  • sink
  • toilet
  • hairdryer
  • drying rack
  • radiator

They are exclusively for the use of the hirer, and personal belongings can be left safely, as only the hirer has a key. They cost £14 per night.

Do I need coins for the showers??

No, the showers are free of charge and are open all the time.

Can we get a refund if we leave early if the weather is bad??

We cannot control the weather, so no refunds are given for early departures.

What about the family bathroom that can be booked for an hour??

This has all the same facilities as the private bathrooms, and also has a baby bath. This is available for 45 minutes per booking, for a £10 returnable deposit. We just ask that you clean it after use, leaving it in the same condition as you would wish to find it.

How good is the television reception on the park?

Due to the position of the park, with hills around us, TV reception can be variable, especially when it is windy. We have gone digital.

Are dogs allowed on the park?

Yes, we are a dog friendly holiday park and welcome all well behaved dogs. They must be kept on leads and although we don’t allow dogs in the bar/restaurant area, we do have a lovely outdoor terrace area where your canine friends are more than welcome.
