Located in a quiet corner of the Lake District National Park, Pound Farm is a carefully designed and beautifully situated holiday hamlet.
The rural setting makes the most of the stunning views the area has to offer. It is understandable why Alfred Wainwright was so inspired by Bowness on Windermere. You will find Pound Farm Park nestling quietly in the Lake District National Park just outside Windermere and Kendal. This is a perfect location to access the lakes but also offers a rural setting just outside the bustling towns.
The park is superbly designed with local slate walls on either side of our main access road, bordering our elegant lodges as you look down the park.
It is ideally situated for you to enjoy all the Lake District has to offer whether it is sightseeing, walking cycling, climbing, sailing or just relaxing away from it all.
The park is peaceful with abundant local wildlife and if you are lucky you may meet our near-tame robins and pheasants.
We are easy to access, just 15 minutes from the J36 off the M6.
Although a rural setting, we are just 400m from the Sun Inn at Crook which offers excellent meals and ales.
Open from 01/03/2017 to 31/10/2017

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
