Great little park. Fantastic location - not far from J40 of M6 and very close to
Ullswater and Pooley Bridge (which has great pubs with child/dog friendly gardens). Took about an hour to get to Windermere and 40 minutes to get to Keswick. Very clean toilets/showers. Small shop and chippy. Lovely play park for kids. Will return.

A lovely little caravan park overlooking Lake Ullswater. Great views from some pitches. Good children's play area. Small shop on site and other limited shopping in nearby Pooley Bridge.

Go up the hill through the Kirkstone Pass and you've at Windermere in the heart of the Lakes.
