About Us About Us

Based in the English Lake District, Herdwick Croft offers a stunning caravan and touring park with breath-taking views over the North Lakeland fells and is the perfect location for exploring this beautiful part of the UK.

Just 2 miles away is the picturesque lakeland village of Bassenthwaite and the stunning Bassenthwaite Lake offering the perfect haven to relax while enjoying the sun or a picnic. If you are interested in the watersports then the lake is excellent for paddleboarding, Kayaking, windsurfing and canoeing and the local Bassenthwaite Sailing Club is only one mile away where you can hire or launch a sailing dinghy.

Also within a short drive you will find the market town of Keswick on Derwentwater just 8 miles away, and the park is just 5 miles from Cockermouth, the birthplace of Wordsworth and Fletcher Christian (author of Mutiny on the Bounty). Herdwick Croft is well placed on the main bus route to Workington, Cockermouth, Keswick, and Penrith.

Herdwick Croft is within 3 miles of Skiddaw and close to the Northern fell of Binsey, so walkers have a good selection of walks on their doorstep. The North Lakeland fells are renown for the quality and variety of the walks from gentle strolls to epic day adventures!

The property has a river running through it so great for sitting by and relaxing.

Visitors keen on fishing should bring their rods, as we are only 50 yards from the Lake where you can have a go at getting a big catch!
