For

The beautiful scenery of the Lake District surrounds this peaceful holiday park, well situated for visiting both Penrith and Keswick. There's a wealth of facilities, including an indoor heated pool, gym, spa, sauna and steam room, as well as a holistic therapy centre where you can enjoy a range of treatments and massages.

The children will love the 18 hole crazy golf course, the adventure playground and giant draughts and chess. Adults will enjoy the bar and restaurant as well as the pool and games room - and everyone will love the family entertainment on offer in the evenings.

We like all the accommodation here, but particularly the Keswick, a two storey modern and comfortable country cottage that sleeps six people. It has a master double bedroom with ensuite shower and doors out to a patio - plus one twin room and one with bunk beds.

The Priest Hole in Ambleside serves delicious, freshly prepared Mediterranean and English food in a beautifully restored 16th century building. The watersports at Windermere include water-skiing, windsurfing, sailing and canoeing.

Our Top Tip
"There are some lovely little towns and villages to explore - Keswick, Cockermouth and Alston to name a few."

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.

We spent four nights at Whitbarrow with our three children (4, 7 and 9) and we didn’t want to come home! We stayed in a 3 bedroom property (Troutbeck) that was furnished to a very high standard, with a well equipped kitchen, plenty of room for the 5 of us; complete with kids den and hot tub. It was clean and well maintained on arrived. The site is very pleasant and nice to walk around. The indoor pool is unfortunately too small to cope with peak demand, but when it is full you simply put your name on a list. We managed to swim every day and when we did have to wait for a slot it was no longer than 5 or 10 minutes. The pool itself was a good temperature and kids are free to have lots of fun - i.e. no lane swimmers (other than before 8am and after 8pm when it’s adults only). Unfortunately the small kids pool was out of order for our entire stay. The pub/restaurant enjoys a nice setting with views over the fells and the food is good. The kids play room has a table tennis table, but the PlayStation was out of order and the kids (brio type) train table was a bit tatty - the play room could do with some investment. I have to say that the staff were always really friendly and helpful, helping to make the overall atmosphere very pleasant and relaxing. The location of Whitbarrow is excellent - 15 mins from Keswick, 15-20 mins to the M6 and roughly the same to Ullswater, so a great position to visit some great parts of the northern Lakes. Overall we loved our stay at Whitbarrow (our second time of visiting) and will certainly be going back again.
Gillian

Excellent facilities with clean accommodation.
Sam
Had a really nice time! Would prefer the hot tub area to be little more private as you was looking up to the apartments, but other than that amazing weekend!
Christine
We loved the newly refurbished Troutbeck cottage with hot tub; some issues with the boiler but these were dealt with very promptly
Lorraine
Great family break. Fantastic base for exploring the Lake District.
Olivia
Very nice! A few things broken or missing in house and hot tub took a very long time to warm up but overall enjoyed our time there.
Phillip
Great holiday and fantastic value for money. Would definitely book again.
Ellie
A wonderful relaxing holiday. The accommodation (and hot tub) was very clean, well presented, and fully equipped. The pool facilities likewise were spotless and we were impressed with the bar, restaurant and games room. It was great that the kids could run around without the fear of cars. We had a great time.
Amanda
We had an amazing 5 days at Whitbarrow Village over October half term. The cottage (Caldew) was fabulous, the facilities just right and the bar and restaurant just perfect. All in all a relaxing holiday xcx
