When wondering when is the best time to buy a static caravan in the Lake District, you only need to take in the views for an answer – Spring! The views in The Lakes are truly breathtaking in Spring and have inspired countless artists over the centuries. The great romantic poet William Wordsworth famously lived in the area and wrote extensively about the stunning landscapes. Artists John Constable and J.M.W. Turner also tried to capture the beauty of the region in their paintings. More recently, the pop singer, Taylor Swift, paid homage to the area with her song ‘The Lakes’.
The views at North Lakes Caravan Park are absolutely stunning, we’re on the Northern border, nestled beside a 22-acre lake. Each static caravan has its own south-facing deck area, meaning you’ll get the sun all day long.

From traditional English breakfasts to afternoon teas, and from hearty pub grub to fine dining restaurants, there is something to suit every taste and budget. One popular delicacy of the area is Cumberland sausage, a savoury pork sausage made in the region for over 500 years. Another must-try is the famous Grasmere Gingerbread, a spicy and sweet treat that has been popular with visitors since the 1850s. And for those with a sweet tooth, Kendal Mint Cake has been a favourite of hikers and mountaineers for generations.
