Water, wildlife and sticky toffee pudding – how Lake District lovely. You'll be in a sweet spot for the lot at peaceful Newby Bridge Caravan Country Park, near the southern shore of Windermere at the edge of the Lake District National Park and four miles from the ancient village of Cartmel, famed as the home of the aforementioned sticky pud.
The park is in a quiet setting with plenty of wildlife to spot as well as easy access to heaps of walking and cycling routes. Restaurants and inns are also nearby if you're not too filled up on Cartmel pud; Cartmel Racecourse is a short drive away, and the Cumbrian coast at Grange-over-Sands is within six miles. The paddleboat cruises, boating and lakeside rambles of Windermere can be accessed a mere mile away.
Newby Bridge is a small and quiet site in highly scenic surrounds, with spaciously set out holiday homes among private woodland, colourful shrubs and spectacular views. Communal facilities include a launderette with washing machine, tumble dryers, drying cabinets and an iron; a small play area, and an information room with a charging point, local area info, games and a book exchange facility.
