Motorhome & Touring Caravan Park in The Lake District

Take a picnic lunch, or in the evening watch the sunset over Lake Windermere; this is unspoilt nature at its best.

Book one of our touring pitches and relax and enjoy the beautiful Lake District. Located in the heart of the National Park our campsite is on the side of the fell, nestled between Lake Windermere and beautiful Moor How. We’re proud to be renowned as one of the best caravan parks in The Lake District.

Hard standing pitches

On the park all our modern hard standing pitches have been tastefully landscaped into the rural surroundings. They are maintained to high standard so on arrival you can expect to roll up to a spotlessly clean base for your holiday.

Free Wi-Fi

We have installed a comprehensive free Wi-Fi network across the park. So whichever pitch you are on you can be assured of being able to stay connected to the internet (or not if you’d prefer!) at no extra cost.

Easy access to the fells

Most of our motorhome and touring caravan pitches have stunning views of Moor How, which is easily accessible through the children’s playground. This relatively small hill (229m) affords spectacular views over Lake Windermere and to the Langdales beyond. It’s well worth to climb to the top to enjoy a picnic or watch a stunning sunset.

For more on the walks in the area, please visit our reception. Our staff will be happy to give help and advice. Alternatively visit our Things to Do section where you can find lots of information about what to see and where to go whilst on holiday in the Lake District.

So if you’re after the best caravan parks in The Lake District, look no further. However if you still need convincing please read our Google reviews or TripAdvisor reviews.

Reminders for when you’re on the park

  • For your safety and security and to minimise noise the Park gates are locked at 11pm and open at 7.30am. If you are out late, vehicles can be parked just outside the main gate. Then please tip-toe back to your pitches, remembering as you walk past tourers, tents and pods to have consideration for fellow visitors who may be asleep.
  • We cater primarily for families, couples and singles, and have a ‘all quiet after 11pm’ rule so that everyone can enjoy a quiet night’s sleep.  Remember voices can carry (especially when on a mobile phone).
  • There’s no loud music allowed at any time – we are not a music festival and for some guest’s loud music can spoil their peace and relaxation.
  • Our reception is open from 8.30am  to 9pm (6pm low season). If you require assistance outside of these times contact the Duty Warden. Please check the notice on the reception door as where to locate them.

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.

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.

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.

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

  • 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.

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.

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).

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.
