Great first trip to the Lakes We have just had our first stay here and we all had a fantastic time. The lady who welcomed us was really nice and helpful and dealt with any queries we had. The first night there was some noise late on, but this was fully dealt with and managed for the rest of our stay. The site itself has everything you could need when camping and all was kept to a high standard throughout the 3 nights. The evenings were the most enjoyable, having a pitch next to a steam and your own fire pit really made it fun and relaxing. In terms of location this was also a huge plus, it was 10 mins from a local Tesco and Shell garage, 15 mins from a really nice beach in Haverrigg where the sea is really clear and great for the kids to play in. We were also only 25 mins from Devoke Water which is beautiful small lake with parking close by with a short 5 mins walk. We will be coming back again and thanks again for a great timeIain

Heavy Horse Riding

BHS Approved Centre – Heavy Horse Riding Experiences – Shire, Clydesdale, Suffolk Punch and Ardennes Horses – Horse Riding Holidays – ‘Hands On’ Experience Days – Farm, Fell, Beach and Trail Riding – Short ‘Taster’ Rides – Short Children’s Rides in the Holidays

We are located in the Whicham Valley, in the South West corner of the Lake District National Park. This gorgeous little valley is an undiscovered gem, with great views across to Coniston, Duddon, and into the heart of the Lake District, but without the crowding of the Central Lakes it remains a wonderful, quiet area to ride.
