This is a charming and beautiful site. Set in 50 acres of natural wooded parkland on the banks of the River Lowther. It is the home of the rare and fascinating Red Squirrel.
An ideal location for touring the Northern Lakes, the Eden Valley, the North Pennines and the Scottish Border Country

We visited this park early june, we had a lovely time, this is the 2nd time we have been and would go again. The shop on sight was well stocked. we were parked next to the play ground so was ideal for us, being able to watch our 2 children. The bar on sight was also nice, friendly and relaxing. i would rate this park 9/10

Practical Motorhome Snail Trail recommended site July 2006
Lowther Holiday Park is a haven for wildlife, and is therefore much loved by motorcaravanners. Set in ancient woodland, it is filled with birdsong. As well as being handed a site map on arrival, you will also be given a wildlife guide, featuring pictures of the birds you are likely to see.
This site map also includes a selection of discount vouchers for local attractions – of which there are many. Rainy day fun could include a visit to the Cars of the Stars Museum. For outdoor activities, you could head to Rookin House Farm on the A66 between Keswick and Penrith, which has horse riding, fishing, quad biking and archery.
But the area’s most popular attractions are the fells. There are hundreds of walks at nearby Blencathra. For the less adventurous, there are plenty of good shops, pubs and restaurants to explore in the market town of Keswick, or alternatively you could take a boat cruise around the delightful Derwentwater – you’ll never want to leave!18 Jul 2006
Practical Motorhome Independent Site Reviews.
Visitors are immediately put at ease when approaching Lowther. The site is located just off the A6 near Penrith, down a mile long drive that is mercifully wide enough for two units to pass.
On arrival you are directed to a temporary parking place, and presented with a plan of the park which details your pitch location. This plan comes with a selection of discount vouchers for local attractions. You also get a wildlife watch sheet with pictures of the birds that populate the park. Lowther is one of the few places left in the country where rare red squirrels can be found, and as such their habitat is protected.
Whatever your taste there is plenty do in this area. For the fell walker there are the Lakeland hills not far away. Keswick is great for shopping or you could take a boat trip on the lake.
Indoor attractions for wet weather days include the Cars of the Stars Museum or the Cumberland Pencil Museum. For something a bit different, Rookin House Farm has fishing, horse riding, quad biking, archery and many other outdoor activities.
The exceptional shop can supply all your needs and the bar, TV room and restaurant will keep you happy on those rainy days.
For children there are two play areas, one for older children and one for the youngsters, plus a recreation field with goal posts. There is a little noise from the nearby motorway but it is not loud enough to detract from your enjoyment of this lovely site. 22 May 2006

Lowther Holiday Park is a haven for wildlife, and is therefore much loved by caravanners. Set in ancient woodland, this site is filled with birdsong and is one of few places in the county where red squirrels can still be seen in their natural habitat. As well as being handed a site map on arrival, you will also be given a wildlife guide, featuring pictures of the birds you are likely to see at the park.
This site map also includes a selection of discount vouchers for local attractions – of which there are many. Rainy day fun could include visits to the Cars of the Stars Museum or the Cumberland Pencil Museum in Keswick. For outdoor activities, you could head to Rookin House Farm on the A66 between Keswick and Penrith, which has horse riding, fishing, quad biking and archery.
But the area’s most popular attractions are the fells. Blencathra, or Saddleback as it is locally known, is close by and there are hundreds of well-known walks around the area. For the less adventurous, there are plenty of good shops, pubs and restaurants to explore in the market town of Keswick, or you could take a boat cruise around Derwentwater.
But really, there’s no need
to leave the park at all, since
the well-stocked shop, bar, TV room and restaurant will
keep you entertained.
