We stayed for a week in November. This is one of the best run sites I have stayed at. The facilities are excellent and always clean. The grounds are beautiful with a wonderful woods to walk the dogs around. Lots of wildlife ( deer and pheasant) so must keep dogs on a lead at all times. Staff very helpful and shop well stocked for a caravan site. We would definitely visit again. Excellent location for Ambleside and Grizedale Forest not too far away....Read less.

We chose this site last year as we wanted to attend the Ambleside Christmas lantern parade and this seemed the closest site. The site is quite large and very picturesque. The staff, from the initial phone call, down to the welcome on arrival were first class. Everyone we came into contact with were friendly, helpful and very welcoming. There was activities on site to attend should you wish and an on site shop for all your daily needs. The one small thing that we feel could improve this site would be a meeting room or onsite bar where people could meet for a get together, but understand not all sites want to do this. All in all would definitely recommend this site and will be returning...Read less.

This was the 37th camping park we’ve stayed at while traveling eleven countries so far in Europe. The launderette was far and above the best we’ve ever seen. Three sets of modern washers/dryers plus a commercial type set for heavy items. Baskets are provided for placing finished laundry in if you’re waiting for a machine. Best of all, a warm drying room with racks, shelves and hangers for drying drip-dry items or damp shoes. Amazing! Everything else about the park was lovely as well. Superb!...Read less.

Everything about the site was perfect and we could not find fault with anything. We attended the bonfire and firework event for the second time and it did not disappoint; it was spectacular in fact! The only issue we had was inconsiderate neighbouring caravans; three families had come away together and formed a commune right behind us, which is great but they refused to go to sleep, being really noisy in their awning until after 2am and this happened on both nights of our stay. We left feeling completely drained having had very little sleep. We reported the issue to the on call warden who did attend to remind them of the site rules but they started back up again as soon as they knew he was out of earshot. Not the site’s fault at all and not meant as a poor reflection of it in any way whatsoever, just a shame our time there was spoiled by the complete disregard for others by fellow campers....Read less.

I arrived in the dark, having had to follow family later than their arrival, the duty warden was extremely helpful in assisting me in locating our pitch.

Toilets / Shower facilities were clean and tidy, and remained so during our stay, although it was a trek from the touring pitches to the facilities, the site would benefit from having facilities close to the coppice pitches.

Although we didn't use the children's play area, it was well set out with lots of activities available for children of all ages and a good sized football pitch - something not seen often on a touring site.

Overall a good, well kept site with friendly staff, in a good location for visiting all areas of the lake district....Read less.

We enjoyed our stay, but thought it was expensive. We were staying in a small converted camper van but didn’t need an electric hook up as we were only staying for three nights so had enough leisure battery power.

The only facilities we used were the wash rooms and shop.

I think £25 would be a fairer price.

Our three night stay cost just less than £100’s which felt steep.

It would be great if the site stayed open throughout the year....Read less.

The location is perfect for switching off and relaxing as soon as you’re through the main driveway. We’ve been with our touring caravan for the last 4 years and only discovered the woodland walks on the site, which are perfect for dog walking and are completely safe, with views of Loughrigg and the Langdale valley, towards Elterwater.

I setup my Caravan here in a October for a long weekend of waking with my 2 Dogs.

Park is in a great location with excellent facilities. I had a Hardstanding pitch which suited my needs and kept muddy paw prints out of the van.

Park is ideally located close to Ambleside which is accessible via a 50 minute walk, 2 mile car drive or bus that stops at the park gates.

Only small negatives are that there is no pub within short walking distance. Also I have an Eriba with the door on the drivers side. Vans have to be on the LHS of the pitch which meant tow bar facing the rear of the pitch. I was told that I can drive the car through the pitch but this wasn’t the case. Not a big problem I drove in sideway, unhitched and pulled the van around 90 degrees.

Limited views from the site but also sheltered in the trees so swings and roundabouts.

Highly recommended as a great base to explore the Lakes....Read less.

We went when it was quiet (late Sept) which suited us. Night little shop on site. When we arrived the lady behind the counter couldn't be friendlier and helpful.

The only improvement would be TV and wifi signal as the plot we had had neither. A couple of DVD's and we were fine....Read less.

We have been visiting this park for many years. We like the premium pitches and the standard of cleanliness of the washing facilities.

The only slight niggle is the time that the toilets are cleaned. It’s too early for the majority of holiday makers and I find it puts unnecessary pressure on in the mornings when we would like to feel relaxed. I do understand that the wardens like to get them done early but other sites manage to clean about 11am....Read less.

It was our first visit to Skelwith Fold following a recommendation from family- we weren’t disappointed. Friendly staff welcomed us on arrival and all of the pitches we looked at were nice and level- one tiny criticism is that our caravan only just fitted on the pitch. The facilities were spot on with lovely warm showers and toilets. The shower cubicles were large allowing you to move around without hindrance. The site was clean and quiet and the surrounding area is stunning. We will definitely be returning.

We once again very much enjoyed our October break in our motorhome. The wash block facilities were once again spotless and lovely and warm. The only downside is the lack of glass collection bins on the site, the only one placed at the entrance which is a long way to walk when you'll all set up and don't want to move the motorhome until you leave. The local council's refuse collection staff were extremely helpful even coming to our motorhome to help me with glass but commented themselves that additional bins would help them enormously as campers do throw their glass into the none recyclable bins and they end up separating them out....Read less.

The facilities at Skelwith Fold were excellent.

We were told it was 35 minutes walk into Ambleside, it took us 50 minutes and we are walkers of a good pace, we think this was misleading.

if you want peace and tranquility this is a hidden gem!

small, friendly site and a beautiful view of the lake, the fishing is a bonus.

the site amenities are excellent plus immaculate and a warm welcome awaits from the owners.

don't know if the presence of children would disrupt the tranquility, as non present when we stayed, but it would be a shame to spoil the calm.

ideally situated on the outskirts of blackpool and to explore surrouding areas.

the access road to the site isn't sign posted, and the road itself not brilliant, but with taken slowly and with care not a problem and well worth the effort.

would definitely return, as this is just what we look for when booking a site, thanks....Read less.

Our first time at Skelwith Fold but not our last. We loved the campsite - our 3 young children enjoyed the new play park / football pitch and we all liked the Friday night fish and chip van. The park is beautifully kept and really well located for some lovely walks. We walked from the site through Skelwith Bridge to Elterwater and Loughrigg Tarn, taking in some great pubs along the way. The staff were really helpful and the shop is really well stocked (can recommend the locally baked bread and croissants made on site).

We chose Skelwith Fold because it was in a part of the Lake District that we had not been to before and all the woodland around the site seemed to be great for dog walking and offer opportunities for walking which is an important part of our holidaying. However, although the woodland was great for dog walking and we had some enjoyable walks direct from the site, we were disappointed with the site. The facilities were very good but the pitches were all gravel with no grass between them and consequently had a rather 'rough' appearance about them which, to our mind, did not justify the price of them. The lighting was also very sparse, making it very difficult to walk around after dark....Read less.

Chose Skelwith Fold partly due to its location but also due to the availability of fully serviced touring caravan pitches and the availability of internet as we both needed to stay online during our week away.

Positives - The staff are friendly - the location is great.

Negatives - The price for pitches is top end and you would expect something special to warrant the price - the premium pitches are located in what can best be described as a car park - nothing pretty at all - just functional at best.

The broadband didn't work. My Wisp is a small company who appear to specialise in fitting broadband equipment to the static caravans on site and not really interested in the touring proposition. They were difficult to contact, unresponsive and the security certificate for their offering expired 103 days ago - the result is that modern browsers and security software will not allow registration.

The Skelwith management intervened but only after a push - but were unable to resolve our problem. They did readily agree to refund 3 days charges paid in advance which allowed us to move to a more wifi friendly site .

In summary I believe the site is really interested in static caravan owners not tourers - shop opening hours of 9am mean you have to wait to get your bread instead of being out on the fells. The premium pitches are poor relations when compared to other sites (functional but ugly) and need more thought if the attraction of the touring market is really on their agenda....Read less.

We have a touring caravan and have stayed at Skelwith Fold many times over the last 10 years. The facilities are excellent with very good showers and toilets that are kept immaculately clean, The site is generally quiet and peaceful and is very relaxing. It is all hard standing, which is understandable with the inclement weather that can occur in the Lake District. The site is heavily wooded and the TV reception is difficult, we could only get the BBC channels and not ITV. It would be perfect if this could be improved by having a plug in aerial connection available to each pitch site. Whilst the trees are beautiful they are getting bigger every year and there is a point where some need to be thinned out to give more daylight onto certain pitches particularly in the morning and evening, but these are minor points, overall we were very satisfied...Read less.

Third visit to the site and nothing much has changed, still the lovely peaceful site tucked away in the woods. Close enough for walks to Ambleside and The Langdales. The approach road is quite narrow and with very impatient drivers it is sometimes a challenge towing a caravan; however it wouldn't put me off returning. We stayed on a pitch near the children play area, the only downside being a bit of a trek to the Chemical Disposal Point at the main toilet block. Lack of recycling points at this part of the site and again it was a trek to the main recycling areas....Read less.

Overall we were very impressed with Skelwith Fold and in particular its location to many and varied walks. There were a couple of elements that we felt could be improved upon however.

1. We found it very strange and unusual that the shower blocks were cleaned so early in the morning - on a couple of occassions this was 9.30 and it meant that we needed to wait around until finished whilst usually 30 mins when you are on holiday every little helps in terms of getting out. Most places we have stayed clean their facilities at 11am when the majority of people have used the facilities. There was also occassion when the showers were all occupied and then when they were free they were immediately closed for cleaning.

2. within the ladies shower block one show did not have a seat installed I feel this is useful in all showers as it is easier to place clothing onto a seat rather than the pegs - there was easily room to install a folding seat

3. The instructions to the campsite were not clear in terms of the direction from Ambleside or Windermere as we missed the first turning. Whilst it states when the road divides into 2 it then take the road towards Hawkshead, the sign did not mention Hawkshead and if you do not know the area you think it is another road divide, it should actually state the direction that the sign indicates. Especially as turning a caravan around in the location is not the easiest.

The good: Showers were great. Chippy van was great

The not so good: The young lady of reception was not particularly welcoming and we were ‘processed’ in an autopilot manner. She was not at all friendly, just another caravaner turned up to check in.

The road from Clappersgate is quite narrow for the now wider caravans with unforgiving stone walls. The touring caravans are now shoved up in the far corner in as little space as possible to fit in as many vans as possible. The roads had very tight corners to get a long 8m caravan round and many of the spaces were not long enough, we tried 3 before we managed to fit in one, not helped by the free for all way of doing it which meant very small camper vans were in the longest spaces. Having visited the site several times as a child, it was disappointing to see that the need for money and profit has meant that the original touring spaces have been given over to the more profitable static caravans and tourers are shoved out of the way in a little space as possible to comply with he obligations of the part authorities to continue to take tourers. We would not stay again and would not recommend it either....Read less.

Throughout all my contacts with Reception at Skelwith Fold Caravan Park the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. We found the toilet facilities onsite amongst the cleanest and well equipped we have experienced. The pitches on site were of sufficient size to comfortably fit a caravan, awning and car without infringing into your neighbours area. The only bugbear we experienced was the public access road from Ambleside to the campsite which could, I imagine, be fraught if you were towing and met a bus or lorry or big tractor coming in the other direction....Read less.

Lovely park but way too many rules for me. You book a pitch, 1 adult and 2 dogs, and pay extra for an awning (not sure why as it’s still within the boundaries of your pitch). I took a ‘Coleman Cortes Octagon’ tent to use as an awning on my VWT5, instead of my inflatable drive away awning. However was told this wasn’t allowed as it wasn’t attached to the van. One ranger said it was in case it blew away another said it was because they didn’t want people sleeping in tents?! I paid £130 for 3 nights.

There are no grass pitches, only gravel on hard ground, so make sure you take appropriate pegs.

All in all a pretty park, that’s well maintained, in a stunning location but clearly aimed at the ‘holiday lodge’ and big touring van market....Read less.

Unfortunately our stay was not as expected, we where in pitch 71 which I have to say is the worst pitch I have ever stayed in. No privacy at all as you constantly have people walking past your window through the cut way why you think that is an acceptable pitch is beyond me, you view is the bin and toilets which is very sad considering the beautiful grounds. We actually left a day earlier as we couldn’t stand it anymore I felt we where in a car park a bit of grass wouldn’t go a miss! . On a positive note the toilets & showers where spotless and plenty of room to have a decent shower. The grounds are lovely. The staff are friendly....Read less.

Loved our stay in the safari tents, luxury is an understatement, everything was of a very high quality and made for a very comfortable stay. Pretty much everything you could have needed was provided.

Small comment - there could have been a larger pantry space and roller storage under the bunks would have been helpful as we had to keep the 4 children bags in the main bedroom space, we were only here for the weekend, this would have been a problem had we been here for longer.

Wasps were a real problem and this did impact on our alfresco eating. I would suggest that a pot or 2 of mint or peppermint oil on the veranda would help as apparently they don't like it.

Unfortunately, There was nothing within a short walk of the camp in the way of a pub or restaurant.

An observation regarding re-cycling, had there been 2 bins in the tent and both waste and re-cycling wheelie bins we would have been able to re-cycle easily, We mentioned this to Skelwith staff who were unable to tell us why this facility wasn't there....Read less.

They only down side for us was the pitch covering. We were in a camper van and awning but even with the carpet in the awning the chippings on the pitch were still really really uncomfortable under foot and particularly to sit on. We liked the site but felt it was more set up for caravans than campers with awnings. Gretvstay thiugh and beautiful surroundings and nearby activities....Read less.

We have been to this park once before in May and it was lovely. The location is stunning the facilities are brilliant everything is clean everything is tidy everything is modern. Staff also helpful they bend over backwards to help you out with any query. The shop is a little expensive as most of the shops are on these sites however it is very well stocked they have fresh bread and pastries every day and the fish and chip van on a Friday night is pretty blooming good. Not tried any other amenities yet but we will soon. The pitches are of a good size however if you want to fully serviced pitch you do have to pay a lot extra but worth it. Compared to some sites people may think it is very expensive but in life you get what you pay for I think and this site is probably one of the best I’ve stayed on yes it’s a little bit more expensive but the facilities are 2nd to none and the location is awesome. I think it worked out about £50 per night for two of us but when you consider bed and breakfast is a similar cost in the Lake District and a decent hotel £100-£200 per night and you don’t have the freedom of your own motorhome I think it’s well worth the money. There is a bus service that runs from the entrance every hour into Ambleside which is good or you can walk it taking about 45 minutes or there is a trail by the side of the road you can use your bicycle. So although when you are there you seem isolated and far from the madding crowd you are really quite close to Ambleside and all its attractions which is very good I think. Top marks to the owners and to the staff for this site it is just brilliant we will be back!...Read less.

In a fabulous location and close to many places of interest, although the busy, narrow road to the site can be somewhat hair raising at times!

The access road into the site is tree lined, unfortunately however, that is where the beauty ended. Our super pitch was uninspiring and drab. Just grey gravel with no grassed areas and no boundary markers between caravans. There really wasn't anything super about the pitches at all and at £90 for two nights we expected something far better.

Reception staff, however, were very friendly and helpful, and the shop was quite well stocked with basics.

Due to the high cost and poor quality of the pitches we would not use this site again....Read less.

We stayed during one of the wettest weeks of the summer, however we still had a great time. Other sites we have stayed at would have struggled with flooding but our pitch at Skelwith drained well and we stayed as dry as we could.

Facilities are excellent, toilets and showers spotless throughout our stay despite the wet conditions.

Dishwasher is a great addition, we were holidaying with family and this made washing up a breeze.

On site shop is well stocked and reasonably priced.

Lovely walks around the site and children's play area is great.

The times for cleaning the toilet block each day varied, other sites I have stayed at let you know in advance when the facilities will be closed. A very minor criticism but would have been useful to know in advance as the alternative toilets were a few minutes walk away.

We chose the park for its location but we were well aware from trip advisor reviews that the premium pitches were close together. The site is amazing, staff the best we have come across and the shop and facilities 5*. However we prob won’t return as the pitches are over crowded and you could have 30% less caravans and a more private layout and easily charge much more money to cover that loss. We would pay more to get the kind of space offered on other premium sites. It’s a real shame I think - but still, we do think it’s a great site overall....Read less.

We had a fantastic week at Skelwith Fold. It was our first visit and we were not short of activities. We really enjoyed our time on the site. We chose a standard touring pitch near the children play area and although a little walk to the bathroom block (which was very clean) it was a great spot. We felt like we were in the woods and saw red squirrels and deer. The children loved the very well equipped park and spent a lot of time there. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were able to walk in to Ambleside and it was just a short drive to Brockhole, Wray castle and Kayaking on Windermere.

The touring pitches are good but they maybe lack a little grass. We found it very difficult to hammer pegs in to the ground when we put the awning up (the only negative of the week though). We will be returning 😁....Read less.

We have stayed at Skelwith Fold several times over the last seven years during Spring, Summer and Autumn and love it. However we would definitely NOT return during the summer holidays for the following reasons. DOGS!!!!! We were surrounded by people who had two and three dogs and the barking was almost constant day and night. INCONSIDERATE CAMPERS!!!! talk about being hemmed in to our pitch. Our neighbours car was parked so close to our caravan he couldn't get out of the drivers side and we were unable to open our window fully without it touching his vehicle. We did ask him to move it but his response was negative. Space greedy and absolutely no respect for other campers. He did concede to moving it when we were leaving the site as we were unable to get our caravan out. SMOCKED OUT BY CAMPFIRES!!! On one of the hottest days we had to close our windows because someone lit a fire - unbelievable!!!!!

Wardens do patrol regularly but not enough to spot these problems and deal with them. I don't want to confront people with these issues when I am on holiday as you are not always guaranteed a polite or positive response!!!!

The campsite is expensive because the facilities and location are excellent. However, on this occasion I don't feel like we had value for money and would think twice about returning....which is a real shame....Read less.

We love the Lake District and Skelwith Fold could not be better placed to access the lakes, attractions and fells around Coniston, Windermere and Grassmere. Although it is quite expensive as caravan parks go it is competitive compared to others.

Skelwith Fold is within a wooded area with security barrier which is closed during hours of darkness. The forest is a haven for wildlife on our last stay at dusk we took our grand-daughter for a walk through the woods we saw several deer, bats and an owl. Deer can also be seen during the daytime as well as several varieties of butterfly.

Skelwith Fold has a calm atmosphere, perhaps this is helped by the trees absorbing sound and the way the site is designed with clusters of pitches both permanent and touring.

We stayed near the playground which could have been noisy but that was not the case except perhaps early evening. Our grand daughter was able to go off and play with new friends while we could keep an eye on her from the caravan, she was also able to practice her cycling on the site roads. The playground closes at dusk by site staff and this was adhered to by the children.

Washing facilities are protected by a passcoded door and are excellent with good drying facilities.

We are NT members and there are several places nearby to visit, Ambleside is a pleasant town with lakeside walks and boat rides of all types.

Bowness is a more touristy place but has a wide range of eating possibilities.

It is not called the Lake Disitrict for nothing, it is quite likely it will rain, if so the NT places have activities indoors and the Brockhole centre also. There are cinemas in Ambleside and Bowness.

Lastly Fish and Chips are served near reception but get there early as the queue grows quickly .

Another couple of great weekends at Skelwith, it is a wonderful place to stay. Each year we park the van and let my (elderly) parents use it midweek. Last year major building works on an adjoining property owned by the park spoilt the tranquillity, so you gave us some free nights accommodation this year. Unfortunately on one of the days there was again quite a bit of building / maintenance noise, which my parents mentioned to one of your staff.

I appreciate that such activity does have to happen at some points in the yearly cycle of development and upkeep, but a bit of prior warning would help.

What has upset me more is that when my mother discussed this with you, explaining that hammering had been going on all morning (erecting/fixing a fence, apparently) she was told that the activity had only been going on for twenty minutes, and that " some people moan about anything, we even have people moaning about the Jets". Now, I can only imagine that the member of staff who said this was part of the estates supervisory team. I cannot believe that the warden or any of your reception staff would have been so rude as to imply that my Mum was lying about the length of time the noise had lasted, or that she was just a moaning old biddy! (On the contrary - I have always found your wardens and reception staff very friendly and helpful).

So I have only given you three stars this time for Value for Money. The location of the site is wonderful, as is the cleanliness, but you are charging top dollar for the peace and tranquillity of your off-track, woodland setting - so that's what we should get. If there is going to be noisy work going on you should let people know at the time of booking, or offer a discounted rate.

We'll definitely be back, but I will now always caveat our recommendation to friends to warn them about the noise issue....Read less.

The site is away from the madding crowd and is positioned in a tranquil and beautiful estate full of trees and greenery. We saw red squirrels and deer.

There is a bus service outside the site, a 5-10 walk to the entrance (which we loved as it meant no traffic noise on the site) and connects to Coniston to the west and Ambleside to the east. Next time I would buy a group/ family multi-day pass as we ended up spending more money in day family passes (3 days). This is as important to us as we only had a motor home snd did not want to travel around in this. Rather park it and use public transport.

There are great walks around the area, from the site, and are wonderful. We have three children and used a Deuter child carrier for our 18-month toddler and found all the routes superb and manageable. You can buy a written laminated description of 21 walks at reception at 1.50 each) and the instructions and level of orientation is really good. No maps needed - the walk to Wray Castle was excellent.

There is a very well heated drying room where soggy boots and socks can be left overnight, ready for the next day.

We booked a five night stay but after taking our daughter and granddaughter to the airport on the fifth day both my wife and I asked reception would it be possible to stay a while longer. The only thing at the time was one extra night so we took it but the young lady said to come in the afternoon to see if things changed, low and behold she had four more days to give us, that to my wife and I was customer service. We couldn’t have asked for anything better not only from the park but also the weather. Do I recommend the park, 100 percent.

Regrettably, our pitch was adjacent to one that was occupied by someone who flouted the pitching regs. And subsequently were seemingly allowed to continue to do so throughout their stay. At one point, beyond the normal caravan, awning and car they had two further vehicles as well as changes in occupancy during the week. The overall impression was that for some, rules were there to be broken. I have to say the family were pleasant and caused me no grief....Read less.

This holiday park is primarily for mobile homes, with small areas for tourers and motorhomes.

It's very nicely set amongst lots of wooded areas and we even watched a red deer roaming around the park.

It also has a well laid out children's play area with lots of equipment.

The toilet / shower facilities were a little dated, but were extremely clean and tidy.

The on-site shop also proved useful and the staff were all friendly.

Park was beautiful and well kept. We stayed in the tourer area which carried sounds because of the surrounding trees,so not tranquil

Wifi was not readily available as this was farmed out to a third party. Web site not secure and web site licence had expired so we avoided it. Coverage on this Mywisp was very poor anyway. Not acceptable in this day and age.

Premium pitches had a tv port however even with this the programmes suffered loss of signal regularly. This also needs improvement.

Rotary clothes dryers not allowed however caravan hanging dryers on the van windows are allowed, how strange.

Lastly, the wardens were travelling too fast in their buggies, there were children on bikes on the roadways, an accident waiting to happen. Also the wardens patrolled the site on the buggies but would be unlikely to hear noisy neighbours on see dogs on the loose because of the high speed they travelled around. They should do these checks on foot....Read less.

The Tourer caravans are a tad too close together for our liking though. Bit of a walk to a walk to the chemical waste point, which is unfortunate. Not enough toilet blocks either.

We have been fell walking and rock climbing in Langdale over the past 60 years. I was once an Eskdale Outward Bound lad, we live in north Cumbria so this site was perfectly positioned. The facility was excellent, staff very helpful and welcoming. We established in plot 50 and after booking in I changed from shorts to long trousers (a sudden chill edge to the wind) and returned with our details to the office, sadly without locking our caravan door. We returned to immediately discover my shorts along with wallet (circa £60 plus credit and various membership cards and driving licence) had disappeared. An utterly thorough search of the caravan into every conceivable crevice, proved negative, leaving only one possible explanation. We cancelled all credit cards and reported the loss to the police as we were obliged to do. The site manager was understanding but insisted this was the first incident of its kind ever to be reported at Skelwith Fold. Not a first we would ever have wished to be associated with since it was my fault for leaving the caravan door unlocked. Otherwise our week at Skelwith Fold was excellent....Read less.

On arriving at Skelwith Fold Caravan Park we were greeted by extremely friendly staff who gave you clear instructions on how to choice your pitch and the facilities available through out. The caravan Park is set within beautiful woodlands with birds,squirrels and the occasional red dear roaming around the outskirts. The main shop was extremely well stocked and you could get fresh backed patisseries every morning. On a Friday if you didn't feel like cooking you could get excellent fish and chips provided by the chippy van that came onto site. The shower blocks were clean and well maintained as was the laundrett, and if you stay on the premium pitches you are given tokens to use the dish washer. There are a number of beautiful walks from the site one's not to be missed are the lovely village of Hawkshead or the sleightly larger village of Ambleside both well worth a visit.

We decided on a 2 night stay at Skelwith Fold Caravan Park for its closeness to Ambleside as we were meeting family in the town one evening. From the initial arrival to departure we were very pleasantly surprised at the sheer quality of the facilities on site. The check in was great, very friendly, informative and welcoming. We chose our own pitch at the top end of the site and let the reception know the number later that afternoon on our way past. The site is vast, it was approximately 15 mins walk back to the road at the main entrance so give yourself time if walking to the bus stop at the main gate. If you like grass pitches this is not for you as they are all gravel but well looked after and clean. The facilities are immaculate but surprisingly only 3 showers in the block that caters for all the tourers in that area, you may need to wait as we did when busy. Overall it's a well run operation and everyone seems to know what they are doing, some sites could learn a lot from this place when it comes down to customer satisfaction.

unfortunately there was no TV reception whatsoever,and we were there for a week .I know there was TV reception near the children's play area,but you can tell it was a bad idea choice, where the Ariel was sited because there were very few caravans pitched in that area which was a long way from the amenities plus it was a long walk to the closest toilets,in my opinion the booster Arial should have been sited in the busiest part of the touring site.but apart from that everything else was splendid.

Skelwith is our very favourite site. Everything is top class from the pitches to washrooms, to staff and layout of the site. The childrens’ playground is excellent being both well equipped and thought out.

Ambleside is full of restaurants although we always seem to go to Zefferellis or Chester’s during the day.

The service bus stops right outside the site although it is quite a hike down to the gate if mobility is a problem, it could do with a car park close to the gate.

The site is large and primarily geared to mobile homes. That said there are numerous touring pitches in several clusters around the park. Apart from a tricky bridge and a narrow lane near Ambleside, it's easy to reach the site.

Check in is straightforward. The onsite shop is a "cut above" the milk and a loaf kind of shop. And there's a chippy van on a Friday evening!

The site is spacious and well laid out, and the loos are clean and more than adequate for the numbers. There is access to a wide range of walks through the forest and there is plenty of nature on the doorstep. We had a deer right next to the motorhome when we woke one morning

We have been visiting Skelwith Fold with our touring caravan for about 5 years and usually visit about x3/times a year . The first thing that strikes you is the beautiful natural landscaping and the positioning of the Static caravans which are not lined up in uniform rows . The park suits our family needs perfectly as we have a young son ( 9 yrs old ) and two dogs . There are so many great walks from the park that we don’t need to use our car . We especially appreciate all the new improvements to walkways that have happened over the past couple of years . We visited last weekend with a group of friends some of which stayed in the luxury pods and they were delighted with their accommodations and would visit again . . Wardens are always so happy to help and check in is always efficient and friendly .Only improvement we would welcome would be a toilet disposal point closer to the coppice area as it is quite a walk to the large toilet block and an improvement to the grey waste disposal near coppice as this often overspills when emptying you grey waste at the tap area . A small shelter over the tap would be most welcome too as in bad weather it would be very helpful and a closer washing area would be welcomed too .

Look forward to our next stay . Kind regards the Burrell family...Read less.

We booked and paid in advance and arrived at 6pm on a Saturday afternoon and were greeted by friendly staff in reception who advised us where there were pitches available. Once we got to the touring area, it was apparent that all the 'available' pitches were not free, as caravan/awning/car combos were taking up possibly more room than they were supposed to. We had been advised in reception to park with the edge of our unit (a small campervan) in line with a pitch number marker. We found a free marker which had approx 4m to the left of it and 3m to the right, so pitched at this marker. We then went out for the evening. On our return, we found a note from the warden saying we were not parked on a marked pitch (despite the pitch number being directly next to our van) and we needed to move. As it was 11:30pm and we had both had a drink, we decided it was both unsociable and inadvisable to drive our van to another empty pitch at this time. At 9am on Sunday morning we were visited by the warden who asked when we were leaving (he obviously already had this information as we only booked one night), and then he said "if you're not going soon, I'm asking you to move now, as you are not parked on a pitch". We showed him that we were parked right next to a pitch marker, but he insisted that belonged to the caravan next door, which was about 3m away from us (and also parked in front of the next pitch marker!). His opinion and stance wasn't budging, so we said we would be leaving within the next hour anyway. We spoke to two other visitors who were in small campervans, and they said they were also treated in a similar manner - one being told to move his van 0.5m over as it was not correctly pitched therefore would infringe on the next pitch. This site has huge pitches and a small campervan takes up about a third of its allotted space on a pitch, however, caravan/awning/car combos take up the whole area of their pitches, and it was these units that were pitched wrongly, yet no attempt was made by the warden to ask these people to move their units. We felt there was a definite prejudice against campervans, in favour of the caravan/awning/4x4 car combos that took up the rest of the touring area. and we will be looking for another campsite next time we visit this area....Read less.

What a wonderful Caravan park! We highly recommend on every important aspect. The position! Wildlife, welcome! Facilities second to non! Cleanliness ! A very Well stocked shop with fantastic bakery food items to die for! even parts for your van should you need them, amazing drying and laundry rooms ! Even a perminant static sales office, and info on other sites as well as a programme of social gathering events. I must say the Hideaways are really tempting us to leave the caravan at home. We will definately go again .It has to be the best site ever in our book. 2 Local pubs although very nice indeed! are really at the higher end in the area.

Our top tip!!

We recommend sat nav users really take heed of the advise given from the site, on how to find us!

To add to this., I think if you put in the LA22 0HY and note! soon as your on the B5286 keep an eagle eye to the right side of the road to Correct Front entrance. And try not to overshoot it to the locked side entrance....Read less.

The park is in a staggeringly beautiful part of the lake district and the design of the park blends in well with the surrounding countryside. The pitches are a generous size therefore you never feel closed in. Really clean and organised and all staff were very friendly and helpful. the local areas are very beautiful, friendly and beautiful to visit. we had a great holiday in our new motor home on its first outing and as we were not sure of the area we chose not to drive into towns and found the local bus service was very accessible and frequent. It may be a consideration to offer a returning site buggy service to the bus stop for a small fee. We paid for 4 little dogs, this does seem an unnecessary extra cost because my dogs are very small and put together would not make a labrador sized version. Also we have a pull out awning on the motor home which is not comparative to an caravan awning size but there is no differentiation to pricing between the two. However we chose to pay to stay on your beautiful site and our budget will dictate how frequently can visit.

The staff who greeted us on arrival were lovely, really helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Showers and other facilities were spotless and above average. Loved the idea of the library for exchanging, borrowing books.

Really good walks from the site and also good cycle routes.

Only issue we had was regarding whether ‘some people’ may consider our gear tent/awning was an awning or a tent! We use it alongside our small VW Campervan for boots storage, keeping chairs in etc in case of rain, much smaller than most of the ‘room’ type awnings we saw in use on site but because we hadn’t actually attached it to our awning we were told that it may not be acceptable as the site does not have a tent license. This was a single skin, gear tent, can’t imagine anyone sleeping in one (as people do with the additional room tents which attach to caravans and larger Campervans which were much in evidence). We never did find out who the ‘they’ were who were likely to take such exception to our gear tent but did find the slightly patronising way it was explained to us a little irritating....Read less.
