Tourism and conservation working in partnership.

Welcome to our newest Member – Park Cliffe Camping & Caravan Estate

Park Cliffe Camping and Caravan Site is the latest local business to join Nurture Lakeland’s growing ‘family’ of Corporate Members and, excitingly, has agreed to also fundraise for Fix the Fells.

Just a couple of miles from Bowness-on-Windermere, and enjoying stunning views over Lake Windermere as well as to the fells and mountains beyond, Park Cliffe has a long and distinguished record of achieving excellence and demonstrating their commitment to sustainable tourism.

With a reputation as a peaceful, tranquil but easily accessible site, the park has for long been managed as a haven for wildlife, and visitors regularly find themselves sharing their surroundings with an abundance of birds, squirrels, roe and red deer, foxes, badgers and many other species.  It’s hardly any wonder that they are holders of the prestigious David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award for 2016/17!

The team at Park Cliffe has worked hard to achieve a number of awards including;

  • Visit England Gold Award
  • AA 5Pennant Gold Award
  • Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, and
  • Top 100 Sites North West Regional Winner 2016 and 2017

Nurture Lakeland is thrilled that such a high-achieving team has agreed to support us, not only through membership, but also as a fundraiser for Fix the Fells.  As well as signing up to our opt-in donation scheme for on-line bookings, they have already come up with new ideas to increase their fundraising, for instance, suggesting a donation at mobile phone charging points and planning regular events such as a duck race.

All fabulous stuff and all to benefit not just future generations of visitors, but also the fells themselves!

Park Cliffe owner, Susan Dickson, said;

“We’re really excited to be involved with Fix The Fells through Nurture Lakeland. Many of our visitors enjoy walking in this most idyllic corner of England and we are really pleased to put something back into the landscape.”

Many visitors enjoy staying at Park Cliffe and they are bound to have some impact on the surrounding hills and dales, an impact which Susan acknowledges.

Susan continued;

“We are completely aware just how lucky we are to live and work in such a stunning part of the world, and we get really excited introducing people to it, but we are also aware, how increasing visitor numbers have an effect on footpath erosion in the area, so felt that this was a perfect opportunity for us to be involved in this year”

We look forward to working with Susan and her team for many years to come.
