Description

Opening Dates this year:  12/04/2021 to 31/10/2021

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 60 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.

Our campsite has room for 60 pitches and we have 25 luxury holiday homes offering style and comfort and is open from March to Mid November.

In addition our bunkhouse sleeps up to 20 and is open all year.

All of our holiday park is dog friendly, and our facilities include a constant supply of hot and cold water in the toilet block with the added benefit of relieving tired and aching muscles with a piping hot shower after your day in the outdoors.

Deep sinks are available for the cleaning of pots and pans and a laundry with washer and drier are there for your use.

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

We also have a Breakfast Van open on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 7.30am to 11.00am.

Nearby Attractions

ur campsite is perfectly placed for walking up Helvellyn, being located at the start of the main path up from Glenridding.

Ullswater offers a range of activities from sailing to swimming. Glenridding has a good selection of general food and gift stores, a National Park information centre, cafes, restaurants and pubs, and outdoor gear shop and garage.

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.
