Feel snug and settled as we welcome you into our luxurious woodland hideaways. Skelwith Fold Hideaways meet the highest standard of Glamping in Ambleside. The Hideaways are fully equipped with an en-suite and kitchen, and resemble a luxury hotel room.

Why not try out our luxurious Hideaways, not your typical glamping pod in the Lake District! Experience outdoor living whilst enjoying all the indoor comforts required for a comfortable stay. The glamping pods are located in one of the park’s quietest and most wildlife-friendly spots. Deer and Woodpeckers are often nearby and may even give you a breath-taking moment as they pass while you peer through the full length windows or enjoy breakfast on your private decking.

Perfect for a romantic glamping break, why not treat a loved one or celebrate an anniversary? Or just enjoy a long glamping weekend walking and wildlife spotting in possibly the most beautiful part of the Lakes. These two-berth Hideaways provide a unique ambience that cannot be experienced anywhere else in the Lake District.

So if you love the idea of being closer to nature but hate sleeping under canvas, these Hideaways in Ambleside are just for you.

Ours may be a secluded, tranquil site in a beautiful countryside setting but we know there are certain essentials you’ll need to ensure your stay is everything you want it to be. Our high quality, meticulously maintained facilities include a large, well-stocked shop featuring everyday essentials as well as lots of locally sourced produce and gifts. There are modern shower and toilet blocks as well as a heated laundrette and drying room with a coffee machine, our Trust Library with open access computer, dog/bike/welly wash, five-acre recreation area, recycling area and Wi-Fi.

Our younger guests love our exciting adventure playground with its fun zip-slide, swings and zip-wire. There’s also a large all-weather, multi-purpose pitch with goal-posts and basketball nets – just the place for your youngsters to have fun and make new friends.

Skelwith Fold too has 130 acres of Woodland to explore with a wealth of Flora and Fauna to discover and identify. Few other places can stimulate a young imagination in the magical way Skelwith Fold does.

Very modern, clean and just perfect as a base for our 5 days in the Lake District. The bathroom was a great size, bed was very comfy and the kitchen facilities were good. The complimentary bottle of prosecco upon arrival was a lovely touch! Great location and very close to Ambleside and Coniston. We also visited Thirlmere, Buttermere, Keswick and Stonerigg from the caravan park. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday and we were sad to leave our hideaway.
