Port Haverigg is a real hidden gem, a beautiful unique holiday park, located in an area of outstanding natural beauty with views of the Lakeland Fells, Irish Sea and Duddon Estuary which is immortalized in Wordsworth’s poetry.
This stunning park is in a beautiful location just outside Millom, on the Cumbrian coastline, in the Western Lakes. The perfect location for you to enjoy a holiday in Cumbria, ideally situated for exploring the magnificent Lake District without all the hustle & bustle that can often arise in the heart of The Lakes and it is yet only a 30-minute drive from Coniston.
With a 3-mile golden sandy beach perfect for families and dog lovers alike, Port Haverigg also boasts a 200-acre fresh water private lake which is ideal for fishing and not only stunning but it is the only lake in the Lake District with NO speed restrictions, meaning it is a water sports enthusiast ‘dream come true’.
For the climbers and walkers there is the mighty Scafell and the not so daunting Coniston Old Man, the Langdales and Tarn Hows and all the various routes up Black Coombe.
Golfers can delight in a 9-hole / 18 tee links course at Silecroft Golf Club. Furness Golf Club is on the Island of Walney and is the sixth oldest course in England, a traditional links course with 18-holes. The Dunnerholme Golf Club Dunnerholme golf club is a challenging
