Squirrel! Did you know that the red squirrel is a very shy critter that mostly won’t be spied if it hears our big humanly footsteps (a bit like hobbits)? Sssh: you might just spy one around beautiful Waterfoot Caravan Park, an immensely peaceful place near Penrith in the Lake District National Park.
Like the thought of spotting red squirrels in the wild, the look and location of Waterfoot makes us want to pack up and move here with some immediacy. Not only is it in the grounds of a Georgian mansion, with scurrying wildlife all round, but it overlooks gorgeous Ullswater, with steamer cruises on Lady Dorothy, famed walking routes and, we hope – carrying a notepad/sketchpad to note/sketch sightings of glorious daffodils.
Waterfoot is a family site over a most viewsome acre of land, with up-to-date showers and loos, a shop open daily during season, a laundry room and indoor washing-up areas to combat any Lake District rain. Sans rain, kids have a play area with swings, climbing towers, rocking toys and slide, and there’s a small football pitch for big brothers and sisters.
Reception is easily found at the front of the park, so check in and lace up your walking boots to take in the wildlife and walks of some of the prettiest parts of the country – did someone say squirrel…?

You can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on Pitchup.com.
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.
