The Charm Of The Lakes: Part 1
Day 1 of my return to Port Haverigg Marina Village presented me with glorious weather and a chance to re-explore its beauty without interruption. My journal begins with the area of the park that attracts the most visitors
Following my sister….
We welcomed the lovely Mrs. Tonroe to our ever-popular Port Haverigg Holiday Park (Cumbria) recently. She bought a lovely Lilac Lodge with wrap-around decking & gorgeous views of the lake. The lodge is literally about 6 feet from the lake so the views are as lovely as they can be!
Discovering Lake District’s lovely villages- Ambleside
Ambleside, a small town in the Lake District, a major tourist resort with shops, restaurants, cinema and very popular with walkers and climbers and is one of the best bases for exploring the Lake District.
Holiday homes in Cumbria at the Lake District’s best kept secret!
This holiday park on the coast of Cumbria has it all: Holiday Homes for sale, both static caravans and luxury lodges, and holiday homes for hire. We cater for all holiday budgets, so why not come along and see what we have to offer you.
Port Haverigg is a true gem, a unique holiday park like no other. If you are planning to take your next holiday in Cumbria, then Port Haverigg is your perfect destination. This stunning park is located just outside Millom, on the Cumbrian coastline, just touching the western lakes area. Cumbria boasts not only natural beauty but also excellent water sports and outdoor pursuits. Our 200 acre fresh water private lake is not only stunning but the only lake in the Lake District with NO speed restrictions, meaning this is a water sports enthusiasts ‘dream come true’.
The park itself is beautiful. Cleverly laid out with almost two thirds of the parks plots having water views, all with generous grounds and parking bays around them. Some even have private moorings outside their units for their own boats.
The park has two entries to the lake, one in the secure boatyard and one at the other end of the park by the Ski School and Ski Bar. Both are secure and family friendly. The Ski Bar is a lively Bar which hosts the many water sports events happening year round at Port Haverigg. The Ski School provides the equipment, safety and boats for your fun and enjoyment. Want some fun with the kids? Not a problem. Banana boat rides are available and the kids will love them. Port Haverigg is the ultimate family friendly holiday destination. There is always something happening on the lake, whether it is a family having some fun or learning to ski or a high profile competition. Just recently a high profile Ride and Slide took place in which the UK champion competed. If only for the amazing water sports on offer here the park is worth a visit.
The locality around the park consists of the town of Millom and the village of Haverigg. Leave the park by the Ski Bar’s entrance and, within a five minutes walk, you have what “The Mirror” rated as the UK’s 3rd Best Hidden Beach, with miles of stunning sand, dunes and gorgeous coastline. Here you will find a fantastic park for the kids and a beach cafe. Further up the coast, there is also the local rugby club. The town of Millom is small but has all you need: banks, supermarkets, petrol station, take away and more.
The lake is enclosed by RSPB Hodbarrow Nature Reserve which is well worth exploring and on the other side is the Sea and some fantastic coastline.
Within a 35 minutes drive you can be at Coniston Water, the infamous lake where a world record attempt went fatally wrong. And a little further you can be at Lakeland Motor Museum and Donald Campbell tribute or Lakeside with the steam trains, aquarium and boat rides. Lake Windemere is only 1 hours drive from the park as well as the stunning town of Ambleside.
With fantastic walks, water sport and outdoor adventures, Port Haverigg can offer the adventure you want or be the quiet retreat you need, as we are far enough away to be relaxing or close enough to help you have some adventures.
Our park is home to mixture of holiday homes, from Static Caravans to Luxury Lodges. Our hire units offer the best in caravan holidays & are latest, fully-equipped units. With a wide range of specifications and sizes, we’re sure to have something to suit all families and budgets.
The park is located within 40 minutes of the M6 and the scenery will leave you speechless. It is simply breathtaking.
