“Excellent Value and Fantastic for Dogs!”

My Husband, Dog and I recently stayed at Skiddaw View Holiday Park for a week in a Luxury Caravan, and for what we paid for the holiday, we were extremely impressed. The caravan was modern, clean and cosy and the site was lovely, with lots of extra facilities, including a dog walking field; this was ideal first thing in the morning and last thing at night for our dog to have a run around. We also appreciated the special touch of a welcome basket for our dog, which included a blanket, towels, bowl, treat and information regarding having a dog in the caravan/on site and recommended dog friendly pubs, cafés etc; I must say that it was only a small amount extra to have our dog with us in comparison to some sites I looked at, and much of this extra cost must have been spent on the welcome pack for him. Also, the cleanliness of the caravan was very good and although it obviously allowed dogs to stay, there were no signs that a dog had ever been in it before. In addition the site had animals and a play area, so would be great for children, and had a laundry facility and wifi. The site was also in easy reach of Cockermouth and Keswick and we also enjoyed a few days in Ambleside. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this holiday park and we would certainly recommend it.

“Better than we ever imagined!”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I would recommend the luxury static caravans to anyone, they are amazing value for money, so clean and up to date! We were overwhelmed by the amount of added extras we received- we got a doggy welcome pack! The dogs were thrilled it included chews, towels, bowls, blankets and a welcome card! Such a nice touch. The caravan also had everything we needed like washing up liquid, tea towels, toilet roll and more! (Even I've cubes ready in the freezer for the nice weather we had!) for people who have dogs, the dog walk is really nice to.. We will definitely be returning... Can't say a bad word about the place! Loved every min! A nice pub down the road too called the grey hound which allows dogs in.

“Fantastic holiday in the heart of the Lake District”

Found this park whilst looking for accommodation that catered for dogs. Some caravan / chalet holiday parks charge a heck of a lot more than Skiddaw view, who charge £5 per week per dog.
We expected the usual basic caravan as that is normal if you have a pet. Were we wrong! The caravan was excellently appointed with double glazing and central heating (which was most welcome!) and the view was to die for. Even basic items were waiting for us un arrival like kitchen rolls, toilet rolls, t towels etc. There was even a welcome pack for our dog including treats, a blanket and a towel and even a welcome card for him too! Couldn't fault the staff, the park, the caravan even the weather wasn't too bad.
If you're looking for a caravan and you want to be central for all of the lakes, you couldn't do better than Skiddaw View. Get booking!!!

“Peaceful setting to Explore the Lakes”
Reviewed November 7, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Staying in a caravan during October half term can be risky as the cold can be unbearable. Our Luxury caravan at Skiddaw View was fully central heated which made our stay perfectly comfortable. The van was exceptionally spacious and the beds were excellent with proper sprung mattresses.
The site is right on the Northern edge of the park, so only about a 25 minute drive from Keswick and an ideal base for seeing the Northern Lakes.
My only gripe was that we didn't have the excellent views of Skiddaw as described on the website, but as we were busy out walking the fells all day, that didn't really matter.

“Will defintely come again”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Really enjoyed a six night stay at Skiddaw View. The park was very quiet and clean and tidy. Just about 20 minutes away from Keswick on a good road and ideal for touring Back o' Skiddaw,Cockermouth and Loweswater area. We found the caravan warm and clean on arrival and especially comfortable coming back to central heating on wet damp days. The caravan was well equiped with modern fittings and very clean. I will definately visit again. The only downside was we felt the twin beds in the second bedroom were too small for an adult and were of poor quality and very uncomfortable. Perhaps ok for a child but not an adult but otherwise everything else was five star..*****
