Award winning Lake District Holiday Park

Hawthorns Park is a family run award winning Holiday Park on the edge of the Lake District, Cumbria and Lancashire. Over the past 25 years the park has been carefully managed and developed by Deryck, Monika and son Ashley, always aiming to make this the best holiday home location available.

We take great pride in the calming environment we provide for our guests, and focus on creating a welcoming ambience. In 2015 we were awarded the coveted Five Star Gold Award from VisitEngland.

VisitEngland 5 Star Gold Award

We were delighted to receive the Five Star Gold Award in 2015 that recognises our commitment to providing the best holiday park environment for our guests.

Hawthorns is one of only 22 holiday parks nationwide to be awarded the industry topping Gold Five Star Award.

VisitEngland’s unique Gold and Silver awards are given in recognition of exceptional quality within a property’s star rating, or for outperforming a star rating.

David Bellamy Award

We are thrilled to have been awarded the David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award for the wildlife that we encourage as part of our caravan park.

David Bellamy Conservation Awards are awarded each year to holiday parks that can demonstrate policies showing active concern for the environment.

Assisted by local nature groups and holidaymakers themselves, David Bellamy looks at virtually every aspect of park management – from the protection of plant and animal habitats to the efficient use of energy and recycling. Helping visitors to understand conservation is also considered an important qualifying feature. Three levels of excellence can be achieved Gold, Silver and Bronze.

Bellamy Bee Award

We are very proud indeed to be an official ‘Honey Bee Friendly Park’.

Bees are a vital part of the British countryside, not only are they beautiful and fascinating creatures, they are one of the most important pollinators of crops and other plants. Hawthorns is proud to be working with The David Bellamy Conservation Award Scheme and the British Beekeepers Association working to conserve Britain’s bees. We plant the flowers that bees need to survive and have built many ‘bee hotels’ around the park. Download the Bellamy Bee Award flyer
