Caravanning in the Lake District & Cumbria
The Lake District is the ideal caravanning destination with beautiful scenery and a number of designated caravan sites. Cumbria Tourism describe the Lakes as having "many fantastic sites offering impeccable facilities, world-class settings and excellent green credentials". In 2010 the Caravan Club reported that Westmorland and Lonsdale had come second in its poll of the country’s top 10 caravanning holiday spots. Drawn up using Parliamentary boundaries, the Caravan Club reported that south Lakes had beaten off strong competition from the Cotswolds and the golden beaches of Cornwall.
There are four Caravan Club sites in the Lake District area with a total of 618 pitches:
