Skiddaw View Holiday Home Park

ITV Travel Guides

During April 2015 here at Skiddaw View Holiday Park we took part in an ITV series - Travel Guides.

The show was produced by Studio Lambert, who also produce popular shows such as: Gogglebox, Four in a Bed, Undercover Boss and many more. Travel Guides aired during August 2015.

The show sent five ordinary British households to review some of the worlds most popular tourist destinations: from an all-inclusive in Tenereffe, a five star hotel in Dubai to a holiday in the beautiful Lake District staying with us in our Holiday Caravans.

Narrator Johnny Vegas guided viewers through the location, while the households give reviews about everything on offer - from the accommodation to the food to the activities.

Featured prominently throughout the show is our very own alpaca - Fidel!

Watch 'Travel Guides'...

While staying with us the families visited a number of Lake District attractions and activities, here are some of the activities featured during the show:

  • Windermere Lake Cruise
  • Pencil Museum
  • Honister
  • Keswick Canoe & Bushcraft
  • Greyhound Inn, Bothel
  • Wordsworth House

...in case you are one of those people worried about your mobile phone coverage and the nearest Nando's… DON'T! -- Mobile phone coverage really isn't too bad in the Lake District these days and if you can't survive without some spicy Portuguese chicken there is a Nando's at Carlisle (less than 30 minutes drive from the holiday park).
