General

  • Tranquil site at the foot of the Eskdale and Wasdale valleys
  • Half an hour's drive from the seaside town of Whitehaven
  • Fenced paddocks and stabling facilities for horse owners

Parkgate Farm Holidays is a peaceful farmstead site with a few sheep and friendly donkeys at the foot of the Eskdale and Wasdale valleys in Cumbria's Western Lakeland. You've got easy access to the fells directly from the property, and there are also several good west-coast beaches within ten minutes' drive.

The site welcomes horses and has fenced paddocks and stabling facilities if you have your own horse to bring on a riding holiday.

There's a heritage steam railway line that runs near the farm, and there are several popular visitor attractions within easy reach such as Muncaster Castle, Beacon Museum and The Rum Story.

    We just wanted to say we have had an amazing time at Parkgate Farm and will be booking again

    The caravan was exceptional, clean, well decorated and beautifully decorated. To sit on the decking looking over the fells with our morning coffee or evening glass of wine/beer was perfect way to start and finish the day.

    We have 3 boisterous boys and never before have they said they want to come back to a holiday place but they want to come back here. They love seeing the donkeys and Dyson. Big thank you to Peter for taking them fishing, they are still going on about it, and excuse the pun but there hooked.

    We would recommend 100% to anyone to come and stay. Your place is set with the most breathtaking views surrounding you and you could believe you are miles away from civilisation, yet you are only a short drive away from some other wonderful place to visit.

The Ravenglass to Eskdale miniature steam railway has a station half a mile from Parkgate Farm, or you can hop on at Ravensdale, 10 minutes' drive away, to experience the entire route.

Explore Muncaster Castle, a privately owned fort overlooking the River Esk, just outside Ravenglass, where you'll find landscaped gardens, castle tours, owl and hawk displays, an enchanted fairy trail, a maze, an adventure playground, a gift shop and a café; or visit the historic Eskdale Mill, set on the leafy banks of Whillan Beck at the head of the Eskdale valley.

There's a golf course further inland in Eskdale, or one overlooking the sea in Seascale, both around six miles from the park in either direction. A little further afield you've got a public swimming pool in Whitehaven, where you'll also find a harbour and marina, shops, restaurants and a sports centre, as well as popular visitor attractions like Beacon Museum and The Rum Story.
