Description

Opening Dates: March To October

Gillside, is sited in an idyllic location for the perfect Camping and Caravaning holiday. A Lakeland farm that has been worked by the Lightfoot family for over 40 years.

A site where you can easily view some of the work of a traditional Lakeland farm. Clinging to the side of one of the most scenic of lakeland dales, the reaches of Ullswater, are viewed spread below and along the valley.

The nearby track that leads fell walkers to that magical and mighty summit Helvellyn, passes by the entrance to the farm.

The village of Glenridding, which originally housed the miners from the disused Greenside mine, has a good selection of general food and gift stores, a National Park information centre, post office, cafes and restaurants, together with a variety of hotel and picturesque public bars -just 5 minutes walk away, beside the shores of Ullswater.

Facilities provided for your comfort include a constant supply of hot and cold water in the toilet block.

The farm will be pleased to supply you with fresh milk and eggs ?just ask at the farmhouse.

Nearby Attractions

Many have been inspired by the outstanding natural beauty of this place; including Wordsworth and the Lakeland Poets, and the famous artists and photographers who have, over the years, attempted to capture the beauty of Lakeland. The 3 reaches of Ullswater give opportunities for the sailor, wind surfer, and canoeist, plus the more leisurely sailing on the Steamer, which plys a regular scheduled service along this, the second largest lake.
