Where are the nearest shops, supermarkets and restaurants?

There are quaint local shops in the villages of Nether Kellet and Over Kellet which are within easy walking distance and open every day. Carnforth has a large Tesco, Booths, and an Aldi, and is only a five-minute drive away.

Within fifteen minutes you could be in Lancaster, Morecambe, or Kirkby Lonsdale which have numerous restaurants, shops and supermarkets. Also, when you join you get access to our ‘Where to Eat’ directory which has all the best local restaurants and their specialities – from fish and chips to Michelin starred eateries.

We’re also very close to a large number of regular Farmers’ Markets, including one as close as Nether Kellet.

What if we find a holiday home elsewhere that we like and want to have it at Hawthorns?

We can supply all models from any manufacturer. To help keep us in sync with the environment we do stipulate that all holiday homes at Hawthorns are in an environmentally friendly green colour which blends in well with nature.

Do I need to make an appointment to view the park and the caravan holiday homes for sale?

Feel free to pop by anytime as we are open 9am-5pm every day. It’s advisable to call in advance so we can ensure someone will be available but it is not essential.
