Holy moly. We were sold with the Lake District location of welcoming Church Stile Farm Holiday Park, in the midst of superbly scenic valley Wasdale with close-by climbing and kayaking opps up the Lake District’s highest peak Scafell Pike and on its deepest lake Wastwater. But a hard day clambering and kayaking is always best followed by a fine ale and supper at a local watering hole, so we are sold all the more with Church Stile’s locale only two minutes’ walk from the two pubs and hotel of local hamlet Nether Wasdale. Praise be.

Wasdale’s claim as ‘the birthplace of British climbing’ isn’t a lofty one, as first-timers will see from the screes and summits all around: ascension fans flock here from all over the world to tackle peaks like Scafell, the Great Gable, Yewbarrow and Kirk Fell. But if your preferred surface is on water rather than several hundred metres up a chunk of rock, Wastwater, once voted Britain’s favourite view, is only a mile from the farm to tackle canoeing, kayaking and rowing (motorboats, sailing boats and other noisy/large vessels aren’t allowed, so you can float along the water or picnic by its banks in blessed Lake District peace).

All is praiseworthy on site too: Church Stile Farm Holiday Park covers about seven acres of a spacious oak woodland and wildlife-laden setting, with venerable views of the Wasdale valley and the Screes mountains range. Facilities are kept to high standards and include free hot showers in separate ladies’ and gents’ washrooms, free hairdryers (for both ladies and gents, hurrah), and a disabled/family room with baby changing unit. The laundry room has hot and cold drink vending machines, a free freezer for ice blocks, and a coin-operated washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board.

To keep the kids happy when they’re not sorting out the laundry, there’s a well-equipped play area with swings and climbing frames, a grassed area for ball games, and a woodland area adjacent to the site for wildlife spotting and walks. Picnic tables are dotted around the park and barbecues/firepits are available to hire (pick up essentials for the barbie in the shop and some wood from the Church Stile team).

Open from 18 Mar to 10 Oct
