Ullswater Holiday Park
Family owned Lake District accommodation since 1958.
At the Ullswater Holiday Park, we specialise in a friendly welcome, practical family facilities and a range of accommodation to suit all needs. Our family has been here since 1958 and our park has plenty of space combining a sheltered position beneath Cumbrian fells with excellent access to the nearby shores and waters of Ullswater.
Whether you are planning a relaxing holiday or an adventure packed one, our park is the perfect base to do so. Situated just one mile up from the Lake our Park is an ideal place to bring the children and their inflatables for a fun filled holiday on the Lake. Or if you prefer hiking and walking, the Ullswater way goes straight through the middle of our Park meaning you can easily walk to Aira force or Pooley Bridge.
The Park backs on to the fells, with Little Mell Fell and Great Mell Fell behind us and the High Street Ridge and Howtown across the lake. These fells offer walkers plenty of choice, from strenuous climbs to lakeside rambles, and Wainwright’s Northern and Eastern Fells are just a short drive away.
There are also plenty of facilities locally for adventures such as horse riding, GPS navigation training and quad bike trekking as well as gentler pursuits like golf, tennis and bowls.

The Lake District of 2050 will probably feel very different from today. As climate change takes hold, weather patterns will alter and extreme events will become more common. The coastline will change, as will conditions for all wildlife.
But the changes we need to make to move to a low-carbon Lake District will bring additional benefits to our communities and visitors.
As we move forward in the coming years we hope to reduce our energy usage and greenhouse gases. With the help of the European Regional Development Fund we have been able to install our first block of Solar Panels on one of our agricultural buildings to help reduce the energy used to heat and power the park.
