Ullswater Holiday Park: Aerial view of site and fell side

General

  • Spacious family park with spectacular views of Lake District fells
  • Penrith a 20-minute drive and Lake Ullswater within a 30-minute walk
  • Marina, licensed bar with TV and a games room, shop and playground

If you reckon a site with its own lakeside harbour and views of the Cumbrian fells will float your boat, sail over to family-friendly Ullswater Holiday Park. Sitting a half-hour walk from Fair Field Marina and canoeing, fishing and rides on the famed Ullswater steamers, this option’s in a fab location for touring round the Lake District National Park.

Kids can mess about in the half-acre playground at this well-equipped place, while adults have an ale at the licensed bar or a Farrer’s coffee in the café. Wifi is available (around the reception area and bar, not the whole site) and there's also a shop for essentials (including groceries and camping equipment) and a few supermarkets are 20 minutes’ drive away in the nearest town of Penrith. The capital of Cumbria in days of yore, this place has the 14th-century fortress to prove it...

If loping from local village to local village seeing structures such as this sounds like an excellent option too, ride one of the Lake Ullswater steamers stopping at settlements such as Pooley Bridge and Glenridding along with the Aira Force falls.

After you’ve set eyes on the whooshing water, other attractions nearby include those that combine architecture with lush landscapes – like Dalemain Mansion & Historic Gardens, 10 minutes away, and Lowther Castle & Gardens (20 minutes). There's also the Rheged Centre Cinema, a heritage hub in an old quarry with a grass roof, gallery and 3D screen (15 minutes away).

    Returning campers after it was what we deemed the best value site in the Lakes. No issues with the facilities and generally a lovely site. Due to a family bereavement we had to amend our plans slightly and the site were more than accommodating which was very much appreciated under the circumstances. Can’t wait to visit again next year!

    Going as first time campers we was a little nervous as wasn’t to sure what to expect. The location was absolutely beautiful and staff were friendly and helpful. It was lovely and scenic and had a shop if you forgot any last minute bits. There were plenty of sockets and showers and toilets were clean. The only thing I was gutted about is that I didn’t stay any longer but I will define back.

Local attractions

The Lake District doesn’t skimp on swish sights and attractions, and many of the best things to see and do in the national park – from bushcraft and watersports to golf and tennis – are within easy driving distance of the site.

For classic Cumbrian walks Hallin Fell is a 20-minute drive away and the market town of Keswick, where you can go from perusing a pencil museum to dancing around the megalithic Castlerigg Stone Circle, is reachable in 25 minutes. A bit south of the town of Penrith (20 minutes) are the prehistoric Mayburgh Henge and Norman Brougham Castle.

Other well-known Lake District settlements are also within easy reach along winding roads, like to Windermere (45 minutes away) and Ambleside (50 minutes).

And if you fancy a crack at cantering instead of sitting in the car? Horse riding can be had from stables within a 15-minute drive, while guests who prefer roving on a revving vehicle can squat upon a quad bike and set off into the local lands (25 minutes from the park).

Must see

  • Dalemain Historic House & Gardens (3.3 miles)
  • Ullswater Steamers (4.6 miles)
  • The Rheged Centre (5.1 miles)

National Trust

  • Acorn Bank Garden and Watermill (11.6 miles)
  • Grasmere and Great Langdale (12.5 miles)
