Skiddaw View Holiday Home Park

Children at Skiddaw View

Our Play Area

During your stay with us there is lots for kids to do, both on and off the park. On the park we have facilties such as a children’s play area (which has a great activity climbing frame with slide, ropes and much more), swings and a large recreational field great for a game of football.

We also have a number of animals including goats, alpacas, sheep and ferrets (the alpacas and sheep are also located just next to the play area). In addition to our animals the holiday park is a haven for wildlife with barn owls, stoats and even red squirrels.

In addition to the things to do on the park there are also lots of great attractions and activities in the local area. To help make it a little easier for you we have collected together the details for just a few of our favourites.
