Things To Do

Greaves Farm Caravan Park is set in a quiet rural location to the south of the Lake District National Park on the Cartmel Penninsula just 5 miles from Grange-over-Sands. It offers easy access to the whole of the Lake District and is also within 30 minutes drive of North Lancashire coast and the Western Dales.

It is an ideal holiday base close to many of the main visitor attractions and places of interest. The Cartmel Peninsula and the southern Lake District offer many pleasant walks in unspoilt countryside and on the lower fells. There are plenty of places to eat out from fine dining to pub grub and take aways, and many traditional local pubs in the area.

The historic village of Cartmel is 3 miles away and is home to the 12th Century Cartmel Priory, traditional Lakeland inns, a variety of individual shops, a Premier general store (open till 8.30pm in the season). It is of course the home to Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding and a National Hunt Racecourse. For further details see www.cartmelvillage.com
