General

  • Friendly park in south Cumbria's Furness peninsula
  • A mile from Ulverston
  • Large play area for kids and a pond

You'll likely like the Furness peninsula in south Cumbria. First up, as its name might imply, it juts into the sea (you probably like sea). And much of it is in the Lake District (you may also like). And it has the island of Walney, and it borders Windermere, and has miles and miles of coastline to dive into – if you've any sense you'll very much like all these things too.

And on the peninsula, sheltered within a former quarry, is friendly family-run Bardsea Leisure Park. It's a well-regarded and popular place only a mile from the market town of Ulverston, eight from Windermere and less than four from wild days out at the South Lakes Wild Animal Park.

The toilet and shower blocks are roomy and with underfloor heating (you may also like); the site also has a launderette, a washing-up area, a big play area with pond, a dog exercise area, and a large accessory shop and service centre. Wifi is available for an additional charge.

And another exemplary thing about Bardsea Leisure Park? It's open all year round for winter beach walks and frosty lakeside hikes – something else you might very much like.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

    On arrival very helpful and pleasant staff site very well situated for the Lake District 5 minuits from a local pub and supermarket and leisure centre and only 20 mins from Windermere and Grizedale would definitely stay again also a very good selection of used and new caravans and motor homes open so you can peruse at your own leisure no pressure salesman just there to help if you need any information
    Shower toilet blocks excellent very clean and tidy plenty of hot water
    Tv satellite boxes available at reception for just a deposit no need to mess around with sat dishes on arrival just plug it into connection station at the side of your pitch also individual water points to each pitch no need to carry water drums to nearest water points
    All in all I would highly recommend this site

    Disliked: 

    The only criticism is that the touring pitches are a bit close together than a lot we have been to but I can live with this as everything else was 100%

From the manager...

Thank you very much for your positive feed back. We look forward to seeing you again.

Directions


Leave the M6 motorway at Junction 36. Take the first sliproad sign posted Barrow-in-Furness, and then the first exit off the roundabout onto the A590. Stay on the A590 for approximately 20 miles passing through Newby Bridge, arrive at Ulverston and continue over the roundabout (Booth's supermarket is on the left).

At the second junction immediately after the pedestrian crossing, turn left and drive under the railway bridge. Continue on past the Old Farmhouse public house. Bardsea Leisure Park is 300 metres on the right.

Local attractions

A cosy dip first: a swimming pool as well as an indoor/outdoor sports complex is 300 metres from Bardsea Leisure Park. Once refreshed, wander into the handsome market town of Ulverston for old buildings, cobbled streets and the Thursday and Saturday street markets selling fresh local produce. (An indoor market is open weekly too.)

A prettily landscaped 18-hole golf course is also in the area, but if you're feeling particularly energetic you might be up for a climb up Hoad Hill and the Sir John Barrow Monument from Ulverston's north east.

The tigers, giraffes, kangaroos, lemurs, monkey and more of the South Lakes Animal Park safari park are towards Barrow-in-Furness, as is the Dock Museum, a free attraction (often with special exhibitions) telling the story of Barrow as a shipbuilding town.

Off the peninsula, visit Walney Island and its nature reserve, or Roa Island to get the ferry over to the island of Piel. And if you're off to Windermere, go via the restored steam trains of the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway to travel through the Lake District's sterling scenery and board a lake cruise at the end of your journey.

Must see

  • South Lakes Wild Animal Park (3.7 miles)
  • Holker Hall and Gardens (4.1 miles)
  • Lakeland Motor Museum (6.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Dalton Castle (4.5 miles)
  • Cartmel Priory Gatehouse (5.4 miles)
