Lorton Vale Caravans and Holiday Lodge sit in the stunning setting of Scales Farm, a working dairy farm in the village of Lorton, midway between Keswick and Cockermouth. The park is one of Lakeland's more secluded settings yet within easy reach of Keswick, Whinlatter Forest cycling and boat trips on Derwent Water. Fishing is available to guests onsite in our well-stocked rainbow trout fishing pond and the park sits just off the C2C cycle route. Well behaved pets are also welcome.
Our fishing pond is well stocked with rainbow trout and is available for guest use.
The farm sits on the edge of Lorton Village, just off the C2C cycle route and in one of the more secluded parts of the Lake District. Lorton Village is a charming country village within walking distance containing a range of amenities including a pub, shop and tennis courts.
