  • Skelwith Fold Caravan Park is located just outside Ambleside in Cumbria and occupies 130 acres in the grounds of a former country house with its main attraction being the acres of magical woodland with all its wildlife inhabitants, including red squirrels, red deer, badgers and a huge number of bird species. The grounds of the park can be explored via a network of accessible paths boasting stunning views across the surrounding majestic fells as well as the park's secret magical tarn.

    Skelwith Fold is a five-star experience that you will never forget. We are proud to have won national and regional awards recognising our excellent customer service and our commitment to protecting our environment. Our family is already looking forward to hosting yours for a wonderful holiday you will always remember!


  • Our self-catering two-berth Hideaways are fully equipped with such luxuries as an innovative pull-down bed with soft furnishings, a well-equipped kitchen with cooker, microwave, fridge, and an en-suite bathroom with power shower and heated towel rail. Each Hideaway features a Flat screen TV and DVD player to accommodate your entertainment needs, and Wi-Fi access is included. One of our Hideaways has also been made dog friendly for 2020 - however our other glamping options cannot accommodate dogs at this time. Please note that while children are very welcome in our other glamping pods, we cannot accommodate them in our Hideaways as they only have a double bed.

    Our six-berth Safari Tents are fabulous self-catering glamping pods which come fully equiped for your stay with us at Skelwith Fold. They are set in their own private woodland grove with a bubbling brook peacefully flowing past the front of the built-in balcony. Included inside is a stunning four-poster bed for the master bedroom, two bunk beds in the second bedroom, and a fully equipped bathroom with a shower. The spacious open plan living area includes a comfortable L-shaped sofa with space to spread out in front of the flat screen TV, and a fully equipped kitchen with room to cook for the family (for when you're not visiting the local restaurants!). This space can be opened out fully into the balcony space with the full front wall giving you the feeling of living in nature - whilst in the luxury of all your favourite mod cons!

    Brand new in 2020 we are proud to introduce our S-Pods, which sleep up to four adults and space for an extra two children in the exciting mezanine sleeping space. Located in a specially landscaped space looking out towards the beautiful Langdale Fells, the large wall-length windowed fronts allow you to feel immersed in nature while filling your pod with sunlight - and with the covered balcony you can really make the most of enjoying your idyllic surroundings. The living space includes a large L-shaped sofa you you to relax in front of the TV and/or the beautiful-looking electric fireplace. The kitchen comes fully equipped including an oven and microwave, with a secluded dining room to allow you to enjoy a traditional sit-down meal. There is also a fully equipped bathroom with a shower ready to cater for your whole family. The three S-Pods are situated to allow for maximum privacy - but also enjoy access to a complementary communal covered BBQ area which boasts enough space for you to either enjoy your own family feast or to socialise with your fellow S-Pod guests, depending on your preferences.

    So that you don't need to worry about a thing, inclusive with your booking in any of our glamping pods you will find bedding, towels and toiletries such as shampoo and body wash. In the kitchen you are treated to tea and coffee with biscuits, as well as milk and bottled water. This is self-catering accommodation, so you will find all your culinary utensils you would expect to have at home.
