Exploring Cumbria And The Lakes

The Lake District is one of the world’s best places to visit. With picturesque views and stunning scenery, there is always something to enjoy. The area features walking opportunities, heritage locations, and stretches of coastline.

Here at Hanley Caravans, we have two sites ideally located for travel in and around the Lakes.

1.      Coniston

With plenty of walking opportunities, this location is a great place to spend your time. There is The Old Man of Coniston as well as the lake nearby. As one of the five largest areas of water in the Lakes, Coniston Water has a depth of 184 feet and is 5 miles long. It is also well known as the setting for Arthur Ransome’s book ‘Swallows and Amazons’.

2.      Beatrix Potter

Born in 1866, the famous author spent a large portion of her life living in the Lake District. She made Hill Top in Near Sawrey her home and is still remembered there today. You can also visit The World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness on Windermere to find out more about her and her novels.

3.      Sizergh Castle

Located close to both of our caravan parks, Sizergh Castle is a medieval property which the Strickland family still live in today. You can explore the estate and, as dogs are welcome, it is the perfect place to walk your pets.
