Why stay here ...

Holmside CL is located on the western edge of the Lake District with easy access to the Wasdale and Eskdale valley as well as numerous beautiful beaches.

The site has 5 hardstanding pitches each with a section of grass for awnings and/or relaxing. It benefits from sun nearly all day and has stunning views down the Wasdale Valley to Scawfell Pike. A gentle river runs down the back of four pitches which helps to create the relaxing, peaceful atmosphere you will experience whilst staying at the site. There is very little light pollution so on clear nights star gazing is a must.

It provides an ideal base for walkers and cyclists who can experience excellent routes directly from the site, as well as Wasdale Valley being 9 miles away.

If you prefer a day at the beach then this is also very easily accessible with Seascale beach being a short 10 minute drive from the site where there are plenty of amenities including a local shop supplying local produce, who can deliver to the site if required, and an ice cream shop on the beach front.

The village of Gosforth is roughly 1 mile from the site, a 20 minute stroll, where you can find numerous pubs, an Italian restaurant and the Yam Frae Yam tearoom.

There are numerous attractions nearby including the famous La'al Ratty and Muncaster Castle. All local attractions, pubs & takeaway information can be found in the on site Information hut where you will also find games and books to help occupy your time. Busy Bees Buffets are based in the main house and offer afternoon teas, breakfasts, cakes and meals delivered to your caravan if you fancy treating yourself.

A links golf course can be found in Seascale as well as a second course 8 miles south of the site.

Dogs are more than welcome on the site but please keep them on a lead at all times and pick up any mess.

There are horses in nearby paddocks and are ofen worked in the arena linked to the site. We do ask that you do not feed the horses.

Excellent new CL site

Holmside

Just spent four nights at Holmside and would describe the site as excellent. Local shops in Gosforth are only 20 mins walk with a lovely beer garden in the Gosforth Hall Hotel. There is a breakfast menu available with afternoon teas delivered to your pitch and we experienced a horse riding display. Local produce is available in the information summer house with books and games to borrow and the best toilet and shower facilities we have yet experienced. Their 2 border collies and 5 horses were a delight. The owners were friendly and very helpful. Definitely be back! Thank you!

Fantastic New CL

Holmside
Lovely new CAMC CL. Well thought out spacious pitches, with lovely views of the fells.Very friendly owners. Handy for many places to visit, coast, Lakes,Ravensglass Railway. Had the full Cumbrian breakfast delivered today by Caroline the owner, piping hot and delicious. Also treated ourselves to the deluxe afternoon tea, was lovely complete with teapot and tea cups and saucers if required! Fish and chip van visits a couple of local places on alternate weeks.The shower currently not open is brand new and lovely. Information chalet with printed walks from site, takeaway menus etc. Being horsey people lovely to see the horses being schooled in the arena and mooching around in the field. Just eating “99” from Ice-cream van that has visited! Very quiet and peaceful . Visited many CL’s over the years in various parts of the country and this one is definitely up there with one of the best. It’s a lovely quieter part of the Lakes to visit, and will most certainly visit again in the not to distant future.

a lovely peaceful CL close to a nice village

Holmside
We visited Holmside for two nights in May 2021. It's a new site so everything is in great condition. The pitches are hard standing, large, fairly level and well spaced out. There is power for all pitches. There is an information cabin with tray bakes (honesty box), games, and a menu for home cooked food. We had a lovely cooked breakfast on a Sunday morning, thanks Christine. The Toilet has a loo, wash hand basin and shower. We met and chatted to the owners who are a lovely couple. We will definitely use this site again. The nearest village is Gosforth (about 3/4 of a mile on a mostly flat and quite quiet road). The village has pubs and a good convenience store plus some other shops. The site is only a few miles from the coast.

Amazing new CL

Holmside
Only open a few days prior to our visit. The site is easy to access, laid out perfectly with 4 out of 5 pitches facing scarfell and scarfell pike. Lovely wide pitches all hardstanding and loads of space between so no matter which side you line up on theres lots of space between you and the pitch next to you. Thwre are walks from the site and Gosforth village is very close with lots of local amenities. Not far from the beaches too. Try the cakes! They are amazingly tasty! Will definitely be back here!
