Set in 25 acres of picturesque, unspoilt countryside in the heart of the Lake District, award winning Park Cliffe offers visitors a tranquil, yet accessible, retreat from the hurly-burly of modern life.

Just a short distance from Bowness-on-Windermere, the park is in a world of its own with breathtaking views over fell, lake and an abundance of woodland wildlife – squirrels, roe and red deer, foxes and birds – in evidence all around.

There are lots of great walks right on the doorstep and the park’s natural features – especially the meandering shallow beck – are even more popular with children than our specially designed adventure play area!

Whether you arrive at Park Cliffe with tourer or tent, hire a caravan or camping pod or to enjoy a regular break in your own luxury holiday home, you’ll find a warm welcome from our friendly staff, plus peace, comfort and fresh air aplenty in this most beautiful location with a range of modern park amenities to tempt even the most discerning traveller.

Local attractions

Cruises on Lake Windermere
Windermere Lake Cruises offer a wide choice of sailings from Ambleside to Lakeside covering most of Lake Windermere - what better way to see England’s longest lake!

South Lakes Wild Animal Park
Prepare to be completely amazed by the unique interactive close up encounter you cannot get anywhere else in the UK or Europe. A unique park built to put animals first - probably Britain's best conservation park.

Lakes Aquarium
Explore the lakes of the world and discover some incredible creatures – from otters in Asia, piranhas in the Americas and cheeky marmosets in the rainforest. Not forgetting all your favourite creatures that live a bit closer to home, including diving ducks in the spectacular underwater tunnel, as well as seahorses and rays at the seashore.

Brockhole Visitor Centre
A great day out overlooking Lake Windermere at the Lake District Visitor Centre at Brockhole. Enjoy our famous adventure playground, exhibitions, fabulous gardens, information centre, gift shop and cafe. Free admission.

The World of Beatrix Potter
Situated in the centre of nearby Bowness-on-Windermere, it’s just a hop, skip and a jump to the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, the only Beatrix Potter themed attraction in Europe, where you can visit Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-duck and many other delightful characters.

William Wordsworth’s Home (Dove Cottage)
Dove Cottage was the home of William Wordsworth from December 1799 to May 1808, the years of his supreme work as a poet. It was probably built in the early part of the 17th century as a small hostelry, with its oak-panelled hall and floors of Westmorland slate, Dove Cottage never fails to give pleasure to the visitor

If you prefer outdoor pursuits, there are many sporting and recreational activities within twenty minutes’ drive of the park, including: walking; rock-climbing; sailing; canoeing; horse-riding; fishing; golf; and balloon rides.

For those bringing a sailing boat, launching is available at Ferry Nab, contact the Lake Warden. Boats can also be launched at Fellfoot Park.
