  • Dog-friendly site on a private, wooded riverside in the Eden Valley
  • A 10-minute drive from Ullswater and 15 minutes from Lowther Castle
  • Bar and shop; fishing available in the river Lowther
Whether it’s an active or a lazy Lake District getaway you have in mind, Lowther Holiday Park will get the opening scenes rolling splendidly. What might these scenes look like? Well, when you’re not unwinding in the site’s 40-acre managed woodland in the Eden Valley or paddling in the river running through the site, you might be out boating on Ullswater, which is accessible from Pooley Bridge 10 minutes’ drive away. Have a gander at the medieval ruins of Lowther Castle & Gardens, which lie at the end of a quiet 40-minute woodland walk from the site. Then, recharge your batteries at one of the period pubs in Askham, 10 minutes’ drive away from the site. Those of you who prefer a picnic lunch will be pleased to know that Lowther Holiday Park has a fully-stocked mini market, which also supplies essential camping equipment and gas. There’s a family-run bar on site with outdoor entertainment in the summer and Sky Sports for those who can’t bear to miss a match day. Down a mile-long, newly-laid and private tarmac drive lined with mature trees, this place really feels like a wildlife haven. The long Lowther river snakes through the site, so grab your rod and try fishing for salmon and trout or simply wade around and keep your eyes peeled for native red squirrels, wild rabbits and birds. You wouldn’t guess that junction 40 on the M6 is just 10 minutes’ drive away. Access to the site is through the scenic village of Eamont Bridge.

Powered grass tent or trailer tent campsite

Liked: We thoroughly loved our stay, since it is a short walk away to Lowther Castle where my partner proposed to me! The campsite is beautiful, and very spacious. The on-site pub is great and they showed the Euro Football game too. Toilet and shower block was always clean too :)

Disliked: The distance between the shower block and the tent pitches - although they were very clean :)

Powered grass and gravel travel trailer campsite

Liked: Fantastic location set in woodland, lots of places to walk, safe places to cycle away from roads ideal for kids.

Disliked: Pitches were too close together (less than required 6m), caravans were tighlty packed in, upon arrival depending on which pitch you are allocated you will need a motor mover to get in.

I would definitely stay here again.

Powered grass and gravel travel trailer campsite

Liked: The location was beautiful. Felt like it's own little town. Pub was great

Disliked: Shower blocks need an update. A little prison like. Shower curtain not long enough so even when closed the cubicle to get dry in got very wet

Local attractions

Set an early alarm, because you’ll want plenty of time to explore the Lake District’s second-largest lake. There’s a 20-mile path around Ullswater, which is accessible from Pooley Bridge (10 minutes’ drive). So, take it all in on foot, or opt for the boat hire and cruises if you’d like to cover as much ground (or rather, water) as possible in one go. Haweswater Reservoir (half an hour) isn’t as busy as Ullswater, making it a great pick for more peaceful days out hiking. Penrith (10 minutes) will pick up the pace once again; there’s the popular Beacon Hill hike for those not done with the outdoorsy adventures and a museum and 14th-century castle for those interested in a slice of history. As Lowther Holiday Park is so close to the A66 and the M6, it’s not so tricky to take a day trip to the Yorkshire Dales National Park (45 minutes), Hexham (an hour and 15 minutes) or Barnard Castle (an hour and five minutes) either.
