Your pitch will be available from 2pm on the day of arrival, and must be vacated by 12.00 noon on the day of your departure. As pitches are not allocated you have the freedom to choose from the variety of hard-standing touring pitches on arrival as indicated on the park map or by our staff.

Touring Pitch information

Skelwith Fold's 90 touring pitches for Caravan and Motorhome holidays are scattered throughout our 130-acre woodland site, offering guests the opportunity to cohabit with wildlife, woodland, wetland and fell habitats found within the caravan sites boundaries.

All of our touring pitches are hard standing, offer electric hook-up and are conveniently located for use of the free toilet and shower blocks. Guests have access to laundry facilities, dishwashers, water standpipes and the reception can offer a gas exchange. There is a well stocked shop, internet access and even a Trust Library.

Please be aware that caravan awnings can extend a maximum of 2.5m from the side of your caravan.

We pride ourselves on our touring pitches and we regularly take steps to improve them so that they remain of the highest standard. We recently added 22 Premium Pitches; each pitch boasting a water stand pipe, grey waste drain, TV and electric hook-up and a picnic table.

Please be aware that if your vehicle has been converted into a motorhome there are some requirements - see our terms and conditions here.

Intimate Hideaways

Our two Intimate Hideaways are located in the park’s quietest and most wildlife-friendly spots. These two-berth Hideaways provide a unique ambience that cannot be experienced anywhere else in the Lake District.

All our Hideaways are very comfortable and come well equipped for your stay. As they contain just one double bed, the Hideaways are not suitable for children. One of the two Hideaways are dog friendly. Bookings are for minimum 2 nights.

If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.

Family Hideaways

Our three Family Hideaways are brand new for the 2020 season and specially sited to take advantage of the fantastic geography of Skelwith Fold. Sleeping four as standard – but with room for an additional two children – you can take advantage of these premium luxury glamping pods as part of your family Lakeland adventure.

The Family Hideaways come fully equipped with a full kitchen and bathroom, along with a built-in covered decking space to allow you to open up your living space into the great outdoors surrounding you at Skelwith Fold. They are located near a large communal sheltered BBQ cooked and eating area shared between the three S-Pods – so you will always have a choice of where to eat! The Family Hideaways can accommodate children but not dogs at this time.

If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.

These six-berth Safari Tents provide a unique glamping experience that cannot be experienced anywhere else in the Lake District. They can accommodate a maximum of 6 persons (up to four children).
