“Fantastic peaceful holiday park with spacious,comfortable accommodation.”

On arrival we were greeted by friendly,helpful staff who directed us to our caravan.We were delighted with our accommodation which was spacious,modern & equipped with everything we needed.The site itself is well maintained,attractive & peaceful.The four year old in our group loved the play area which he visited frequently.The views from the play area are spectacular & well worth a visit with or without children.We all fell in love with Fidel,the resident Llama & his goat friends who were all very friendly & approachable.Although quite secluded,the site is only 15 minutes from Keswick along a very attractive road &,we thought,the perfect location for our holiday.We hope to visit again & would recommend this site to our friends & family.

“A surprise last minute find - worth it.”
Reviewed April 15, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Its a really nice, spacious place to stay. We stayed in one of the luxury caravan as a group of 3 friends, although being a 2-room caravan it was meant for a 4-people stay. I would recommend this for a family stay (dog friendly aswell) or a group of friends looking to share the costs. There are other types of caravans in the site aswell...some with good views, and some cheaper with less views.

PROs : really nice, independent stay. Fully equipped kitchen, bedding, and living room - for a reasonable cost

CONS: a bit far from the lakes (diff to find), but enough natural beauty and towns around nerveless. Not really a BBQ place, despite the benches outside. we improvised but did our best to keep the place tidy.

Stayed with my father and daughter. Lovely clean modern van. Excellent quiet site with great views of lakes. If anything a bit far out of Lake district but plenty to see in area.

“Too remote”
Reviewed June 19, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I booked for two nights but left after the first day because the beds smelled damp and it was getting on my chest. It was a nice enough site but basically stuck in a field in the middle of nowhere. Long drive to shops. I think I paid over the top for 2 nights. Note to anyone... Take your own quilt.

Management Response

We have passed the comments regarding the bedding to House Keeping and would have been more than happy to have resolved this during your stay, if reported at the time. As to our location, the distance to local towns (Cockermouth 10 minutes drive, Keswick 20) is clearly listed on our website and other advertising. Also most of our guests prefer Skiddaw View Holiday Park due to its peaceful and idyllic setting.

“Excellent Value and Fantastic for Dogs!”
Reviewed June 4, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

My Husband, Dog and I recently stayed at Skiddaw View Holiday Park for a week in a Luxury Caravan, and for what we paid for the holiday, we were extremely impressed. The caravan was modern, clean and cosy and the site was lovely, with lots of extra facilities, including a dog walking field; this was ideal first thing in the morning and last thing at night for our dog to have a run around. We also appreciated the special touch of a welcome basket for our dog, which included a blanket, towels, bowl, treat and information regarding having a dog in the caravan/on site and recommended dog friendly pubs, cafés etc; I must say that it was only a small amount extra to have our dog with us in comparison to some sites I looked at, and much of this extra cost must have been spent on the welcome pack for him. Also, the cleanliness of the caravan was very good and although it obviously allowed dogs to stay, there were no signs that a dog had ever been in it before. In addition the site had animals and a play area, so would be great for children, and had a laundry facility and wifi. The site was also in easy reach of Cockermouth and Keswick and we also enjoyed a few days in Ambleside. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this holiday park and we would certainly recommend it.
