Returned from yet another visit to Skiddaw View this time rented Platinum Holiday Caravan, 1st class choice if I say so myself. Everything you need and more stayed in Platinum 3. Everything is catered for even an ipod dock for music:) The large deck is fantastic as we had our 3yr old granddaughter with us and she could play safely. So sad to come home hopefully will be back late summer.

“Best caravan we have stayed in, high quality , great location.....”

Fantastic accommodation, would highly recommend , even an en suite in the bedroom.

Ideal location for walkers which we aren't but surroundings are peaceful and no noise at night aside from birds and sheep.

Close to Whinlatter Forest which is great for mountain bikes and kids. Not ideal if you want a club house as there isn't one. Need to make your own entertainment or have evening meal out at pubs within driving distance.

I normally book a lodge so for a change i booked a Platinum Caravan i found it to be very comfortable and clean we were made to feel very welcome on arrival, We found plenty of places to visit in all we had a really good holiday and we certainly would go back next year.

Fantastic holiday with my husband and 5 year old daughter. Caravan was brilliant with every kitchen utensil you can think of! Even Jamie Oliver dinner sets! Only slight disappointment was the pre set heating temperatures were a bit low throughout the night meaning I did get up and manually turn it up as a bit too cold although definitely not a major problem. Bedding was immaculate with both pillow and mattress protectors. Bathrooms were very clean and power shower was a godsend after long walks around the nearby lakes! The living area, kitchen and dining area were big and cooking was easy. We stayed in platinum 1 which has lovely picturesque views and we really enjoyed sitting on the decking area with a well deserved wine. Overall fantastic. My daughter loved the play area. We were so sad to leave and can't wait to go back!

“Superb break in the Lake district”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Excellent service and communication throughout . Platinum caravan was of a very high specification and was presented in a spotless condition, with everything you would require for your holiday.The site is in a secluded position but with easy access to the various attractions and towns in the northern lakes area. Site was very well maintained quiet and peaceful with amazing views, there are some facilities for children and some units will allow pets.

“Beautiful setting, quiet, homely and clean.”
Reviewed 5 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We really enjoyed our stay, used as a base to travel around the northern lakes and do different outdoor activities. The caravan was clean, well presented and had everything we needed. The site was quiet and views were fantastic. My one recommendation to make improvements would be to get much comfier mattresses the king size bed was spacious but a comfy mattress is surely an affordable addition to make the stay much more relaxing.
