1. Stunning location and views

Based in the English Lake District, very close to the beautiful Bassenthwaite Lake, Herdwick Croft offers a stunning caravan and touring park with views over the North Lakeland fells. The views from the site are magnificent overlooking the best of the Lakeland fells including Skiddaw and Binsey. You are surrounded by tranquil countryside and woodland areas. Bassenthwaite Lake is 50 yards from the site. Imagine waking up and taking in the amazing views whilst you sip your morning coffee!

The site is also within easy reach of Keswick on Derwentwater, Cockermouth and even Carlisle. There are superb family facilities nearby and it is an excellent area for the outdoor enthusiast.

2. Low cost

Holidaying abroad is expensive, especially if you have a large family. Passports, flights, insurance, taxis, airport parking, extra luggage costs, hotels, restaurants and shops are just some of the costs you will come across when travelling overseas. A caravan holiday at Herdwick Croft means you can avoid all of these costs, with just your pitch/electricity to pay for (see our tariff for prices) and  spending money for activities during your stay. The money you’ve saved from staying in the UK can be better spent on something else, such as improving your home, a new car… or even another caravan mini-break later in the year!

3. Hassle-free

Any parent who has travelled abroad with small children before will know it can be somewhat of a nightmare. If you choose to holiday here at Herdwick Croft, it’s as simply as loading up the car and taking a scenic drive through the Lake District to arrive at your holiday destination. You’ll also skip the hassle of hunting out the cheapest deal online, the panic of your passport not arriving on time…the logistics, risks and paperwork involved with overseas travel just aren’t an issue with caravans.

4. Environmentally friendly

Travelling abroad increases your carbon footprint – a passenger plane’s carbon emissions are far worse for the environment than those of a car, so frequent air travel is quite a sin if you are an eco-conscious traveller. Travelling by car to Herdwick Croft is a much greener type of holiday, as the very act of not getting on a plane will reduce your impact on the environment. Also, practicing good eco-tourism such as picking up your rubbish and respecting the surrounding nature will ensure the local wildlife can thrive.

5. Dog friendly

We are dog friendly, so you can bring your four-legged friend along to enjoy a holiday with you! Not only will your pooch be delighted that he gets to join in all the fun, it also means you’ll save money on boarding kennels, which can cost over £100 to keep a large dog for a week!
