The Marina Village Holiday Park is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty and boasts a 200 acre freshwater private lake offering a range of water sport activities such as wakeboarding, waterskiing, banana boating, sailing, trout fishing and much more.

There is an additional flat, sandy and tranquil beach that stretches for miles with amazing grassy dunes, it is perfect for grown ups, kids, and dogs alike for running about, building sandcastles, beach combing, or just taking a relaxing stroll. Remember to check the tide times and enjoy the lovely views out to the Irish sea.

The RSPB Nature Reserve is on the doorstep of the Marina Village and overlooks the Duddon Estuary. It is a wildlife haven attracting birds such as breeding terns, ringed plovers, sandwarblers, red shanks and oystercatchers. In a peaceful and calm setting with rare plants, everything is as nature intended with a public hide open all day with free access, if you are lucky you may even spot a seal or two.

Coniston Water with the magnificent 'Old Man' is just 35 minutes away, and within 45 minutes you can be on the shores of Lake Windermere. Heading northwards around 25 minutes away is the 13th century Muncaster Castle. Wasdale Head and the stunning Wastwater lake surrounded by Red Pike, Kirk Fell, Great Gable and of course Scafell Pike and are just a 35 minute drive.

A few suggestions for the children and adventure seekers, Grizedale Forest has walking and cycling trails, some designed for families while other trails are designed for hard core hikers and cyclists. Grizedale is also a venue for 'Go Ape'.

I would like to give a HUGE thank you to sue for letting us stay in this beautiful van. There was myself, my partner and our 10month old pup everything was perfect from the cleanliness of the van to all the little Personel touches that have been put in the van. We are still amazed at the size of the main bedroom and ensuite bathroom , lots of wardrobe and draw space. Bedding was so fresh you could smell it when you walked in we actually didn’t need anything apart from clothes. There was tea, coffee, biscuits and even dog treats so lovely. I can not recommend this lady and her van high enough and we will definitely be booking for next year but for a longer stay. Everything around was stunning and the site lovely too you can see the water on the lake out the van windows the weather has been fantastic all week so all in all we have had a lovely few days away so thank you again sue xx

had a great break at the Mallards lovely caravan with all you will need for a good holiday. great base for or touring westen lakes and coastline, ideal base to hike up black combe and the view from the top well worth the the hike. port haverigg site is not far from consiton and Windermere short 25 min drive and the site itself has good options to eat herdwicks and ski bar both serve great value food, after a long days hiking well needed, need to book in advance as limited tables due to covid. chip shop on main street haverigg a 5 min walk, available tuesday to sunday so a good cheaper option. haverigg harbour pub being renovated so wasnt available. caravan was spotless and would highly recommend,an ideal staycation, owners also adhering well to covid 19 cleaning prior to arrival, so was a stressfree break.

We had a lovely week staying at The Mallards. The caravan was clean, spacious and has the added bonus of an enclosed decking, just ideal if you are bringing a dog like we did. Everything was there upon arrival , even the added extra of milk in the fridge, perfect to make a cup of tea upon arrival. Walking distance to the beach and the lake for watersports, with plenty of sites to explore. Perfect base to explore the lakes and surrounding area too. We had perfect weather for our weeks stay and would recommend this caravan. Sue has been extremely helpful throughout our booking, exceptional customer service thank you.

Beautiful caravan and very spacious, alot of thought has gone into a traveller's needs. Fresh milk, tea and coffee were awaiting our arrival as well as treats for our dog. Just a 2 minute walk to the beach and lake where our daughter had a great time with her fishing net and kite. We had a fantastic time at the Mallards and hope to return next year.

What a lovely, lovely place to be. Everything you need and more is provided. Fab to have the essentials to make a hot drink and a biscuit on arrival. Even our furry friend was catered for with treats already in the dog treats box. Plenty of games in the cupboard and a range of DVD's available too. The photos dont do the caravan justice. The open plan kitchen, diner, living room is a huge space for a caravan, as is the master bedroom. Plush towels, spare bed and bedding provided. The situation of the caravan is fabulous. 123 steps from door to lake side (I counted!). Just a 2 minute walk to the beach too. Check for the tide times to enjoy a paddle. Lots of local info provided with things to do locally. If you want to eat at Herdwicks booking is essential. (We didnt and missed out.) Went to The Plough instead and enjoyed a hearty meal in a dog friendly pub. Sue is on hand if you need her and quick to respond to emails. We had a fantastic time at The Mallards and will definitely return.

From the moment I made the initial enquiry the owners could not have been more helpful. They were always on hand if we needed them and provided us with some great recommendations. The caravan was by far one of the nicest, most comfortable, well equipped and cleanest caravans I have ever stayed in - and we have stayed in many. The caravan is very tasteful and spacious. The beds were so comfortable and cosy with the fluffiest of towels. Everything is there that you could possibly need and more, the owners have thought of everything to make your stay the best. Buddy our dog found the tin of treats within seconds of arriving! Very secure decked area which is great if you have a dog. The caravan is in an ideal, peaceful location and a great base to come home to after exploring the Lake District. We will definately return to this little treasure. Thanks once again Sue & Mike xx

Dear Michelle thank you so much for your lovely review, we greatly appreciate your positive feedback. We have tried very hard to make the 'Mallards experience' a great one for all of our guests, including our furry friends so its good to know we are getting it right. We look forward to welcoming you, your family and Buddy back soon. Best wishes from Sue and Mike

Beautiful caravan in a relaxing setting. Very clean and well presented. The welcome pack provided was a very nice touch and our dog Alfie loved his treats. Other small details were extra loo rolls, kitchen towel, cleaning products, too many to name but items I have never seen provided in a caravan rental before .Bedding & towels also provided at no extra cost. Easy to book and owner very helpful. Guides for local attractions and information pack provided. The deposit was also repaid within hours of leaving the accomodation. Easily 10 out of 10.

Thankyou Pauline for your very kind remarks, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope you will come back and stay again sometime soon. All best wishes, Sue.
