Family fun is guaranteed near the Cumbrian coast at Stanwix Park, which offers a great number of facilities to keep everyone – young and old alike – entertained for the duration of your trip.
Much of the site is dedicated to static units, with self-catering caravans and apartments available for hire, in which to enjoy your holidays in Cumbria. But there are two attractive areas set aside for tourers. All the 127 touring pitches are hardstanding and have 10A electric hook-ups, as well as water and waste hook-up points. Motorhomes that are up to 25ft or longer can be accommodated, but please notify the site in advance. There are also four maxi camping pods that you can hire for a camping holiday with a difference – two of these are pet friendly, the other two are pet-free.
Stanwix Park Holiday Centre is open all year round and is happy to accommodate caravans, motorhomes and tents. It is also an award-winning campsite, as it is featured in Caravan Sitefinder, Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome's Top 100 Sites Guide 2014, one of just eight campsites in the North-West England region of this guide, meaning it is one of the best campsites in the UK. Visitors rated this park for its friendly atmosphere, and for the fact that it is well kept and very clean, but the on-site facilities really shine at this park and keep guests coming back year after year.
As well as a well-stocked shop, a cafe, bars, snooker and pool tables, crazy golf, a children's play park and a 10-pin bowling alley, there are indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a fitness centre, and tennis gear, bikes and even sunbeds are available to hire. The indoor pool has a small pool for children, as well as a waterfall, a slide and more. Or you could bag a sun lounger around the outside pool, slap on the sun cream and get a tan the natural way. If you're searching for campsites in the Lake District, surely few will offer as much as Stanwix Park Holiday Centre.
Of course, you will also find two amenities blocks, with toilets, showers, basins and bath cubicles, where hot and cold water are free. There is also an on-site laundrette with both washing and drying facilities. Payable Wi-Fi is available across the campsite, free Wi-Fi in The Gallery and the Sky Bar.
If you like holidaying with your hound, you'll surely be pleased to learn that Stanwix Park is a dog-friendly campsite. Up to two dogs per pitch are permitted, they'll incur an additional fee of £3 each per day, and their owners must keep them under control and be certain to clean up after them.
There's so much to do at Stanwix Park Holiday Centre that you might never want to or need to venture off-site. However, if you do, there's a lot to keep you busy. The campsite is located just outside the port town of Silloth on the shoreline of the Solway Firth. Blitterlees Bank Golf Links is right next to the holiday park, if you want a round of golf, Silloth on Solway Golf Club just around the corner. Or you could explore the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that sits to the northeast of this campsite, the Lake District National Park ready and waiting for you to the south. And if you need some city time, Carlisle is about a 45-minute drive away.
