“Fab location, brilliant staff”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

We just got back from a 4 night stay, and totally agree with the previous good review. This really is a great site. The location is fab, with a bus stop at the gates and central for loads of great walking. The staff are superb - helpful, friendly, cheerful and knowledgeable, and the shower blocks are great - underfloor heating, spotlessly clean and obviously recently refurbished. We will definitely be returning and can't wait to go back.

We recently stayed here for a week when the weather was really good. It is a very good site with very clean facilities, a well stocked shop and very helpful staff. Lovely location in the forest and perfect for walking from. We never moved the motor home as the site has everything you need.
Highly recommend it although it is not the cheapest of sites to stay on. We would go back there nevertheless.

Room Tip: Fully serviced pitches are quieter than other parts of the site and close to toilets etc.

A top class caravan park in a wonderful forest location. Excellent facilities on site with modern shower block including underfloor heating. The staff on site are very helpful and polite - nothing appears to trouble them. Thoroughly recommend for anyone caravaning in the Lake District.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Skelwith Fold is a unique and special touring caravan and motorhome holiday park - and a beautiful home-from-home for our guests. In the heart of the Lake District National Park we have 300 privately owned static caravan holiday homes. For touring and motorhome holidays we offer the highest of standards and facilities as one of the finest touring caravan and motorhome parks in the Lake District. For those wanting a unique couples getaway, our Hideaways provide the perfect retreat for a few days. But we're more than a caravan park; Our 130 acres are begging to be explored. There are plenty of paths to follow, leading to a wealth of discoveries, including our mystical tarn, sculptures and breathtaking views of the Langdale Pikes and surrounding fells. Although Skelwith Fold houses over 400 pitches it has the feel of a much smaller park - the various accommodation areas have been carefully and sympathetically set out in small woodland glades, settled amongst natural undulating features, creating a sense of quiet and intimacy. Even in the height of the season, the park does not have a crowded feel. ... more   less
