A Lake District Lodge Park

Surrounded by beauty

Our Cumbrian holiday lodge park sits on the hillside above Aldingham on the Furness Peninsula. Lovers of the great outdoors will find an abundance of nearby footpaths, green lanes and bridleways to explore in the Lake District. The peninsula has a landscape that is gentler than the mountainous areas of the Lakes, with rolling fields, woodlands and picturesque tarns.

Sitting on the quiet hillside of the park you could be forgiven for thinking you are miles from civilisation, however, there are a number of towns and villages in the nearby area, including the picturesque market town of Ulverston.

Ulverston is a charming and friendly town, with a cosmopolitan mix of visitors and residents. Alive with independent shops, traditional pubs, a wide selection of cafes, wine bars, restaurants and places of cultural interest, the town has been branded South Lakeland’s friendliest market town. Market days are every Thursday and Saturday.

The quirky town, renowned for its all-year-round programme of colourful festivals, has many claims to fame, including being the birthplace of Stan Laurel and home of the world famous Laurel and Hardy Museum.

Surrounded by fantastic places to eat and drink

For food and drink lovers the Fisherman’s Arms at Baycliff is just a short drive or enjoyable walk from the park. Serving seasonal dishes using the finest, fresh, local ingredients, the bar and restaurant offer comfortable informal or formal dining and a warm welcome.

The Farmer’s Arms and Capitola’s in Ulverston, the Clarke’s Arms at nearby Rampside, The Stagger Inn at Stainton and the White Hart at Bouth are just a few more examples of the variety of local places to enjoy great Cumbrian food, drink and hospitality.

Handy facilities & great days out

The lodge park is also just a ten-minute drive from the port town of Barrow-in-Furness. Most of the larger supermarkets have stores in the town, a ten-minute drive from the park. Barrow town centre also offers a good range of high street stores.

“Located at the southernmost tip of the Furness Peninsula, Barrow offers a rich and colourful experience. Scratch the surface and you will discover a fascinating modern industrial heritage, some of the best retail therapy in Cumbria and leisure facilities to occupy the whole family whatever the weather!”

Barrow is home to The Dock Museum, a great place to discover the town’s history. The magnificent ruins of Furness Abbey and Piel Castle, also reveal little known facts about the area’s rich and interesting past.

At Dalton-in-Furness you will find South Lakes Safari Zoo, where giraffes and penguins can be fed by hand. Tigers, lions, and other endangered animals are reared and protected at the Park. A great day out for all ages.

The Morecambe Bay and Furness area offers a variety of things to see, do and experience. Whether you enjoy browsing farmer’s markets, enjoying the rich cultural heritage or simply exploring the beautiful countryside and coastline, the area surrounding our Lake District Lodge Park has a lot to offer.

Create Your Holiday Home In Cumbria

Cumbria is one of the most beautiful places in the UK, with scenic mountain ranges, lakes, rivers, estuaries and a dramatic coastline leading all the way to the Scottish border. Home to England’s five tallest mountains and deepest lake, two national parks and mile upon mile of footpath where every turn leads to a breathtaking sight, Cumbria offers so much to explore and admire. Waterfalls, tarns and lakes provide yet more spectacular sights throughout the seasons.

A Lake District Lodge Park, with a difference

Doe Wood Lodges is situated on the hidden coastline of the Furness Peninsula in the south of Cumbria.  Journeys north up the coastline from Doe Wood Lodges reveal a different side to The Lake District, less travelled by tourists but no less full of things to see and do. From nature trails to high street shopping, penguin-feeding to power boating, paddling in rock pools to white-water rafting, there is so much to experience wherever you go.
