Fun Days Out in Cumbria & The Lakes

Lake District Wildlife Park

Both children and adults will enjoy a day out here where you can see over 100 species of animals including Zebras and Antelope.  At set times you can go an see Birds of Prey flying displays as well as Zoo Keeper Presentations which are educational as well as fun. If the weather is not on your side then you can make the most of the indoor heated play area and modern cafe.  Located at Coalbeck Farm in Cumbria we think this is a must for families...

Ullswater Steamers

A trip to Cumbria wouldn't be complete without a cruise on the lake and what better way to do this than on an Ullswater Steamer.  Ullswater is widely regarded as the most beautiful of all of the lakes in the area.  This award winning attraction has been in business for 150 years and currently has four vessels operating Ullswater lake cruises.  A further option is to combine a lake cruise with some of the most breathtaking walks in the area.

Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery

Described as the number one attraction in Carlisle this place makes a fantastic day out for all the family.  Suitable for all weathers you can take in interesting exhibitions and enjoy interactive fun.  Lookout for special events which take place at various times of year such as Easter weekend and summer holidays. Open daily all year round.

Lakeland's Wildlife Oasis
Lakeland's Wildlife Discovery Centre is the perfect place for a fun day out which is also educational. The unique centre offers visitors the chance to explore many species of exotic wildlife through interactive 'hands-on' displays. These clever displays travel through 3,000 million years of evolution from the development of life on Earth. The centre is home to some of the world's most threatened species and plays an important role in international breeding.

The double bed kept rising from its moorings unexpectedly,and then wouldn't stay down, we eventually found some rope on the beach to fix it. (This was in June earlier this year)
In September the rope was still there..but as we didn't report it, it's not surprising

We had a lovely time and would stay here again, places that are outside the area are not that for away from the site within half an hour to an hour drive, some of the road's are a bit narrow, but overall a lovely place to stay and see.

Excellent value.
We have stayed at Tarnside before about 7 years ago. I now prefer this area to the actual Lake District National Park. It's much more friendly, empty and beautiful and there is still an abundance of walks on your doorstep. The view from our caravan was out of this world and we were up and out on the beach every morning with the dogs for a pre breakfast walk just because we could. The clubhouse was reasonably prices and the food excellent. Didn't even need to get the car out to go for a cheeky pint Will definitely be back.
Good location of caravan Nice and quiet site few minutes from the beach very friendly staff on hand when we arrived caravan was already for us even had the heating for us All of our family really love Tarnside Park Looking forward to coming back soon
What a lovely quiet, tranquil, clean, well maintained site. Our caravan was spotless. When we had a little problem with our boiler it was rectified within hours. The view over the sea was spectacular.
Caravan could do with some repairs but had a nice quiet time.
Lovely quiet location perfect views. Would come again!
Fantastic get away from it all location. Great sea view from the caravan. Dogs loved the walks on the beach.
Fantastic caravan. Couldn't fault it and the whole family impressed. Great location looking over the cliff straight to the sea. Great sunsets. Great place for peace and quiet but also perfect for kids to run around safely. Would definitley return.
