Windermere Lodges – For your Lake District holiday

Limefitt Park for your Lake District Lodge Holiday

Limefitt Park is the jewel in the crown of the Troutbeck Valley. Lying just over 3 miles from both Ambleside and Windermere this superb lodge park is conveniently situated for access to all of the major tourist attractions, but it nestles in a truly spectacular countryside location, sheltered by the fell sides and nourished by the beck which flows through it.

Limefitt Park - Summer

Limefitt Park is beautiful whatever the season. Autumn in the Lake District is a very special time – the crowds have gone, the leaves are spectacular and you can really appreciate the beauty of the countryside.

The Children's Play Area

The River Pool

The River Pool at Limefitt Park is always a great hit with children of all ages. Normally slow flowing and waist-deep water turn this into a sort of open air swimming pool with overhanging rope swings. Please ensure that young children are properly supervised at all times in the vicinity of the river pool. At times of heavy rain the beck can flow very deep and very fast and at these times the pool is unsuitable for play activities.

Limefitt park has ample open space and some of it is given over to a sports area where you can join in a game of football or play a few games of badminton whilst enjoying the amazing views.

The park management deliberately set aside large areas of the park from cultivation or development in order to provide a haven a wide variety of flora and fauna.

The result is that if you remain observant you will often see animals that are considered rare in more urban environments.

The golden rule is keep still and let nature come to you!

All of the nature photographs on this page were taken by me in and around Limefitt Park except the best ones, the badger video and photo, which were taken by my 14 year old son, Tom.
