Skiddaw View Holiday Home Park


Play Area & Recreational Area

Our modern play area is professionally designed and is a brilliant place to burn off any excess energy or to meet a few new friends. Our play area is located in the recreational field which is adjacent to the main park and is free from traffic. The fall surface is specially designed to offer maximum safety.

Another unique benefit of the play area (not that the children ever seem to notice) is that this area of the park offers some incredible views of Bassenthwaite Lake. To make sure the parents can benefit we've placed a bench close by so you can sit and take in the views.

The play area is located within the recreational field which is a great place for football, flying kites, playing tig and much more.

In addition to the play and recreation area there are also swings adjacent to the holiday caravans.

Within the recreational field we also have a picnic area where you can take in the fantastic view of Bassenthwaite Lake.

Laundry & Tourist Information Room

Laundry & Tourist Information

Our laundry and tourist information room is located around the corner from the shop. The laundry has a semi-commercial washer and dryer, sink and counter with iron and ironing board. In addition you can also browse our selection of tourist information leaflets and brochures; so you can plan your next day out while you wash your clothes.


A public Wi-Fi connection is now available around the holiday park and accessible from the holiday homes meaning you can always keep up-to-date with your email and social media.

Dog Walking Field

Dog Walking Field

The four acre dog walking field is adjacent to the holiday lodge area of the park. The area is long grass with a mown path, in this area dogs are also allowed to be let off the lead. Our Dog Walking field also provides some great views over the Solway Firth toward Dumfries.


Recycling is very important to us here at Skiddaw View and we encourage all of our guests to recycle as much as possible. The recycling point is located opposite the reception and here we offer facilities for the recycling of paper, glass, cans/tins as well as plastics.
