Located on the edge of Ambleside, Skelwith Fold is a first-class destination for motorhome and touring caravan holidays in the Lake District. It is widely considered one of the UK’s premier caravan parks and boasts a selection of 5 star facilities set in spectacular grounds.
The park is nestled in over 130 acres of ancient woodland and occupies the site of a former country house. Some of the Lake District's best attractions and natural landmarks are just a short drive away.
