Glamping Introduced at Skelwith Fold

Skelwith Fold has unveiled its new five-star safari tents, which are sited in a quiet glade at the 130-acre grounds which play host many types of animals and birds, including deer, red squirrels and kites.

Each tent has its own bathroom, as well as kitchen and dining area. Skelwith Fold, crowned as Lakeland’s top holiday park in last year’s Cumbria Tourism Awards, believes its safari tents will appeal especially to young families.

With all linen provided, there’s one double bedroom, and another with two bunk beds in addition to generously sized living areas, and electrical sockets. There’s also a private balcony for al-fresco dining, or just relaxing and listening to the birdsong.

Henry Wild believes that Skelwith Fold’s safari experience will capture the imagination of those who love the idea of camping, but not the flap of putting up a tent:

Owned by the Wild family for over 20 years, Skelwith Fold holds the David Bellamy Conservation Award at its top gold level for environmental excellence.

In March this year, it was also named by the as the AA as North West England’s top destination for touring caravan and motorhome owners, as well as glampers.
