Blaithwaite House: Pitches with countryside views

General

  • Family-friendly site with stunning views across Solway Firth
  • A 10-minute drive from the Lake District and 20 from the coast
  • Shops and restaurants five miles away in Wigton

Rural rambles without having to leave base – bag a berth at Blaithwaite House, 10 minutes’ drive from the market town of Wigton, for a taste of life on a Cumbria country estate.

And not just any old country estate – this one stretches for a generous 200 acres, bringing with it 50 acres of woodland to frolic in, and a walking trail that covers over two miles (Yes, it’s a big place, so best be picking up a map before striding forth.) Enjoyed that warm up? More walks, bike rides and other outdoorsy pursuits are 10 minutes’ drive away in the Lake District National Park or 20 minutes away on the Solway coast.

Time to catch your breath? Settle in on site for splendid views over the Solway Firth or to cook up something tasty at the barbecue and firepit area (shop ahead and you can stash your supplies in the site’s fridges and freezer). If cooking doesn’t appeal, decamp to a local pub – two such establishments an easy five-minute drive away serve up homemade food.

Still got energy to burn? Play areas, a football field and a playing field offer plenty of space to let off steam. If you’ve got a gaggle of buddies on hand, book ahead to mercilessly hunt them down with a game of laser tag… but whatever you get up to, don’t forget to give a cheery wave to Snowy the goat and her chicken pals.

The site may be sizeable, but facilities aren’t far-flung – washing-up areas and individual toilets and showers are in the pitches field and supplied with hot water from the eco-friendly biomass boilers.

Please note

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, customers can amend their dates with the campground/park free of charge for all stays up to, and including, 12/31/2021.

    The views were beautiful, plenty of land to explore and the toilet and shower facilities were great. As we stayed in November, the radiator and hot water in the huts were much appreciated! Never had a problem running out of hot water. Staff helpful and there was a beautiful cat on site who liked to say hello.

    The toilets and outside space were lovely. The children liked the free crazy golf, it kept them amused for quite some time.

    Disliked: 

    It would have been nice to be informed about the wedding happening on our first night of arrival. The music started at about 9pm and continued very loudly into the early hours. On top of that, we were sited next to the car park, our tent pitched less than 6ft away from car bonnets. When the wedding guests came to leave, the headlights shone through the tent and for some reason the drivers could not leave without revving the engine and skidding off. Half of my family did not get to sleep until about 2am. A wedding at the site is fine, no problem, however, the staff knew there was to be a wedding and did nothing to ensure it did not impact on our stay.
