For Lake District touring holidays, Thacka Lea Caravan Park in Penrith is the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful Lake District and Eden Valley.
Based just six miles from Ullswater, the second largest and one of the most beautiful lakes in the English Lake District, this well-kept park is at the north end of the small market town of Penrith and a short walk to the town's many independent shops and restaurants, sporting and leisure facilities.
For keen cyclists, Thacka Lea is situated on the C2C (Sea to Sea or Coast to Coast) cycle route. The park is near to the stunning Eden Valley and the River Eden, which flows through the picture-perfect countryside.
Nearby is the unique village of Pooley Bridge where you can enjoy a boat cruise on the Ullswater Steamers, or take a walk or a drive along the lake to admire the stunning natural landscape. Penrith, in the heart of the Eden Valley, offers a variety of excellent walking, cycling and sightseeing opportunities.
There is also a children's play area and park nearby.

Brilliant site. Clean, spacious pitches, friendly owners. Convenient for town centre and shops. Easy public transport to Lake District and Carlisle. We visit every June and normally stay about 2 weeks. Penrith is a very interesting place, but there are many other places to visit as well.
