- Quiet and relaxing family-run site on the edge of Penrith
- Open views to the Lakeland fells; big skies and spectacular sunsets
- Five miles from Ullswater and easy access to main travel routes
Here's a cunning plan for those who are Lake District-bound and want to stay on a small and excellently-equipped new site with spectacular views… making a cosy Cumbrian den at Foxfield Touring Park.
New in 2016, Foxfield is tucked away on the edge of Penrith, in a wildlife haven surrounded by open countryside. Its far-reaching views stretching towards the Lakeland fells to the west, the Pennine escarpment to the east and the Howgill fells to the south make it a clever pick if you want a place deep in Cumbrian countryside – but within easy reach of the many watery and other sights and activities around the Lakes.
As a new site, all is properly modern here, like the amenities block labelled 'the best wash block we have ever seen', by one gratified former guest, and with spacious showers, hairdryer, shaver points and underfloor heating from the site biomass, as well as a separate wetroom for guests with mobility issues.
Foxfield also has an indoor chemical disposal point with handwashing facilities and a tap to wash cassettes out. (Only organic toilet fluid to be used in toilet cassettes, please, as the campsite uses a treatment plant.)
The town of Carleton is half a mile away, with a farm shop on a working farm, a pub serving good food and a range of ales, and a restaurant. Nearby Penrith is well equipped with supermarkets, speciality and individual shops, restaurants, cafés and pubs, a big leisure centre and a cinema.
Open from 01/03/2017 to 28/12/2017

Party: 2 adults
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 make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
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.

The Lake District, the most visited national park in the country, is easily reached from Foxfield: the spectacular scenery and steamboat rides of Ullswater are five miles away; Windermere, Ambleside and Keswick are within a short drive, and active types will have easy access to walks, fell climbs, cycling and horse riding. And watersports: the Lake District has 53 lakes, tarns and several waters.
For gentler days, visit Dalemain House, the gardens of Askham Hall and Lowther Castle, Acorn Bank Garden & Watermill, and the activities and events of the Rheged Centre, with six-storey cinema screen, shops, cafés and indoor and outdoor play areas.
Also highly recommended by the Foxfield Touring Park team is the Eden Valley, the stretch of green countryside lying between the Pennines to the east, Lake District to the west, Howgills to the south and the Scottish borders to the north. Amble around its sandstone villages, some dating back to Viking times, and hike between the Eden benchmarks, ten sculptures/seats set among the spectacular scenery.
Take a drive from Penrith to Alston (voted one of the most scenic drives in the country), with a stop at Hartside to take in the view across to the Solway Firth and Scotland. Then continue on up to Alston, one of England's highest market towns and a place so oldly handsome it's been used as a film location for Jane Eyre and Oliver Twist.
