Welcome to Whinfell Caravan Park

Whinfell Caravan Park is a small, quiet, secluded park with holiday homes for sale. Situated in the Vale of Lorton, which lies among the North Western fells of the Lake District, much favoured by the well-known author and fell walker, Wainwright.

Whinfell Caravan Park is a family-run business, having been the ownership of the McClellan family since 1950.

The Caravan Park covers 5.886 acres and caters for 34 holiday homes. Three unspoilt lakes and countless walks lie within a five mile radius of the park, and there are several good walks which can be undertaken without taking one's car off the site.

We are situated only four miles from Cockermouth and the historic market town of Keswick. Both towns have a good variety of shops and places to eat to suit most tastes.
