Caravan Holidays in Cumbria

Discover Cumbria on your next caravan holiday

Cumbria, a largely rural county, is by far one of the best places to take in the great outdoors. Boasting the whole of the Lake District, the dramatic landscapes of rolling hills and steady water create a playground for explorers, adrenaline fanatics and wildlife lovers. Although Cumbria is most famous for its National Park, you can also spend your caravan holiday in the countryside unearthing its historic sites, delving into the regional culture and wandering through the quaint villages and market towns. 

Lake District

The Lake District is England’s largest National Park and within the 30-mile radius lies an astonishing number of fells and lakes. Take the scenic pathways by foot, on bike or on horseback as they meander through the alpine-like landscape of glistening water, dramatic valleys and picturesque stone built villages. You can spend time hanging in the trees or paddling across the calm lakes. If the rush of adrenaline isn’t for you, then enjoy a lazy day by the lakes and take some time to relax. Don’t forget, the Lake District is perfect for caravan holidays with dogs. Your four-legged friend would love it here!


The county capital of Cumbria has something for everyone, from extreme sports to family fun; there are places to play, attractions to visit and a lively town centre of modern shops, cafes and leisure facilities. It’s only 10 miles from the border of Scotland and sits on the edge of the Lakes and Hadrian’s Wall. Explore Carlisle Castle, a great medieval fortress that has stood proudly over the city for centuries. In the city centre you will find the timber framed Guildhall and Market Cross and Carlisle's Cathedral is in the heart of the ‘historic quarter'.


At over 10 miles long and 219 feet deep, this dramatic watery expanse is England’s largest lake. Windermere is one of the most popular holiday locations all year round, where you can hop on board a hired boat to watch the wildlife or try fishing if you haven’t before. Belle Isle, a privately owned wooded island on which a unique round house stands, is one of the lake’s most attractive features. Windermere town is just over one mile from the lake; a bustling little town with a great choice of cafés, pubs and restaurants.


Predominantly a Victorian town with good road connections to the lakes, Ambleside is an attractive base for walkers and climbers so is perfect for those looking for an active caravan holiday. It is the gateway to the Langdale Valley which boasts one of the most popular and distinctive mountain ranges in England. A brief walk from the centre of the village leads to Stock Ghyll Force, a spectacular 70-foot waterfall. Ambleside has now become a popular tourist resort with shops and restaurants and is definitely worth a visit.
