Proud to be a dog friendly caravan park
We love welcoming dogs to Skelwith Fold Caravan Park. We have plenty of space around the park for dogs to be walked and played with, as well as the stunning countryside of the Lakes on our doorstep for longer canine excursions.
Of course, we do ask that owners are responsible with their pets and clean up after them whilst at Skelwith – we have children as well as dogs wanting to use our facilities! Guest are able to bring up to a maximum of three dogs per touring caravan. This is in the interests of the welfare of our furry friends.
Endless dog walking locations
Below we have listed some of the best places that our guests might like to take their dogs for a stroll (or jog, or walk, or whatever you rather!):
- Playing Field – We have a large playing field on site that is great for giving dogs some exercise whilst you and your four-legged friend are on holiday.
- Woodlands – explore our woodland paths and tire out your pooch at the same time!
- The Local Area – since we have the whole of the Lake District right outside our front door, why not take your dog for a walk in the local area? There is no shortage of walks around Ambleside that you could take, just ask at reception for a map of one of our local walks.
- Lake Windermere – why not take the short walk down to the water with your dog? Most of our furry friends seem to enjoy a good splash!

Dog wash facilities
And there’s no need to worry about muddy paws after your walk. If you need to clean off your four legged friend (and your walking boots) we have a dog wash available on the park. It’s facilities like these which makes us a first class dog friendly caravan park.
