Our two x two bedroomed caravans are located on a privately-owned site on the outskirts of a pretty town called Cockermouth which is ‘a stone’s throw away’ from the Lake District. The small site has just been developed this year to accommodate the holiday caravans. Although the town of Cockermouth lies on the edge of the Lake District there are lots of amenities to choose from including cafes/restaurants, transport links (for those who don’t wish to drive whilst on holiday), shops (independent and chain) and lots of amazing walks and views of our beautiful countryside. The site is situated so that you will wake up each day overlooking the surrounding fields, hills and have a breath-taking view of Whiteside which looks different from hour to hour. For the animal lovers there are sheep, horses, deer, hens, and a cheeky cockerel called ‘Handsome’ to watch in the surrounding fields.
Due to our location and the close proximity of being on a quiet lonning, our visitors do not need to use a vehicle to go for a walk. By taking a 5 minute walk it brings you onto a river path walkway which you can either go left and head up towards Lorton and the surrounding villages (some road walking too) or go right and this will take you along the river and down into our bustling town. If you are lucky enough there is always plenty of wildlife to spot and fellow walkers to chat to along the way. There is also a route via the road into the town which is approximately a 20-30 minute walk. A street map is located in the caravan information folder for use during your stay.
For the more energetic visitor, there are lots of fell walks and other adventurous activities to choose from. If you are a keen photographer there is no limit to the views you will be able to catch on camera. Children's/teenager's activities can be found at lots of locations across the county. Bear in mind when visiting these may need to be booked in advance with those specific operators.
Our caravans sleep 6 people per van and include a large double room with wardrobes and an en-suite (w.c. and wash pedestal), a medium double room with 2 single beds with storage/wardrobe and there is a double pull-out sofa bed in the lounge. All bed linen and pillowcases are included plus duvet inserts, pillows and mattress/pillow protectors. Please note that hand/bath towels are also included for each guest.
The lounges have a wraparound sofa and cushions, large storage pouffe, dining area and a 32” freeview TV with DVD player.

We booked Christmas 7 days break, but we spent there nearly 2 weeks instead! Owners are lovely, gave us everything what we needed and even much more. Caravan is well equipped, very specious and extremely clean. Surrounded area is a countryside, nice and quite area, with loads of activities to do. Lakes, rivers, mountains and hiking trails. We definitely want to back again. I would recommend specially for those who love nature.
It was lovely to meet Aggie and her family , they were perfect guests. Kept us up to date with arrival and departure times and were so friendly. An amazing couple and their dog , we would definitely recommend them as guests and welcome them back anytime. Were quiet and left the place spotless. Thank you
