The award winning Inglenook Caravan Park is situated in the Western Lake District in the historic village of Lamplugh. Within 10/15 minutes drive are the western lakes of Loweswater, Buttermere and Crummock Water and Alfred Wainwright's favourite fell, Haystacks. This is an area of contrasts with beautiful beaches, high mountains, tranquil lakes and gentle valleys. The exciting visitor attractions along the spectacular Cumbria coast with its wildlife and sandy beaches are within easy travelling distance.
There are many opportunities for activities in the area, not least walking, climbing, fly fishing. The C2C Cycle Route and Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk pass nearby - cyclists and walkers are welcome.

We stayed at inglenook for eleven days and although the site is smaller than Dockray Caravan CLub site across the road, I have to say having stayed at both Inglenook has much more of a relaxed atmosphere with no hard and fast rules about what time you have to arrive and for that matter leave. As we have to leave late on a Friday night this is invaluable to us as no pressure to arrive before a certain time. The wardens are very friendly and the site is very well kept. There is a small well stocked shop for essentials,papers ect, and also a toilet block/showers should you need them.The site is in an area of unspoilt and outstanding beauty. I would highly recommend this site.
I wanted a base near family and friends at Whitehaven in Cumbria over the Mayday weekend.
I like a good shower early in the morning without disturbing my wife! Caravan Club site Dockray Meadow does not have a shower block and so I looked for an alternative that did.
I booked on to Inglenook Caravan Park at Lamplugh having looked at Google Earth and it looked as though they had a big touring park next to their static park.
It turned out that the big touring park next door was actually Dockray Meadow and not part of Inglenook at all! Bad mistake.
It emerged that the Inglenook touring pitches are crammed into 2/3 (one's L shaped) hardstandings surrounded by the statics.
There were two tourers already in situ at the ends of one L shaped hardstanding and, as I thought, room enough for one or at a pinch two tourers in between.
I positioned our unit temporarily at what I thought to be just the minimum 6 metres from the next and went to check that we were OK becaause I didn't see where they were going to put all the others.
We were told this area usually accommodated 6 tourers all with awnings! And 3 more units on the other hardstanding.
The showers are too small to undress in private and the fresh water point is labelled waste water with a rather dubious CCEP (an old wc bowl) immediately adjacent.
