Gillside Caravan & Camping Site is situated in Glenridding, Penrith, Cumbria. The location is perfect for a camping and caravanning holiday, it is 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.
Holiday Homes: These 6 berth holiday homes are fully featured and each one is equipped with every comfort, including colour TV, shower and toilet facilities, an efficient gas cooker, refrigerator and adequate storage. The well designed rooms together with the quality finish of the soft furnishings will make your stay one to remember with pleasure.
Caravans: For those visitors that trail their own touring caravans, an area is specialty reserved with electrical hook ups and individual pitch lighting. All of the site facilities are there for your access and convenience during your stay. You could not wish for a more picturesque location, sited amongst sparkling streams flowing from Red Tarn, the pine and broad-leafed trees with the heights of the surrounding fells rising direct from your door. As it is our policy not to overcrowd this facility, during peak periods and bank holidays it would be advisable to book your pitch before arrival.
The bunk house, tastefully converted from a solidly built Lakeland stone and slate building, has two bunk rooms sleeping 7 and 13. There is a modern electric kitchen for you to easily manage your self catering arrangements. Plenty of parking is available for both car and minibus. This particular accommodation will best suit climbers and youth groups on Lakeland expeditions. Single bookings can be taken, but the Bunkhouse is an ideal facility for groups and is akin to the high mountain accommodation that abounds in the continental alpine areas. The Bunkhouse is open all year round.
