Welcome to High Close Holiday Home Park
High Close is a beautiful holiday home park, set in some of the most stunning landscape in the Lake District and offering a tranquil and serene setting amongst the local flora and fauna. Our park is tucked away in Park Wood, alongside a sparkling stream where otters have been sighted and the park is one of the Lake District’s best kept secrets. Homes on the park are solely for the enjoyment of the home owners and their family and friends, which keeps the park a very quiet and peaceful place to come to. The holiday homes are perfect if you love star gazing too, as there is no light pollution in the area, so on a clear night the skies are literally breath-taking.
Red squirrels, foxes, deer and badgers can be seen around the park and the wide array of bird life in the park makes it a bird watcher's paradise. We pride ourselves on ensuring that the wildlife in the park continues to thrive and come back year after year and our population of red squirrels - which can be seen frequently - are fed throughout the winter by park staff.
We are very proud of our park and we strive to manage it for the mutual benefit of the holiday home users and the environment. This achievement has been recognised, as we have been awarded the David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award every year from 2004 to date.
Our holiday home park is located in the beautiful Northern Lake District, on the lower slopes of the stunning Skiddaw mountain range and close to Bassenthwaite village and Bassenthwaite Lake. Being within a short drive from the picturesque towns of Keswick and Cockermouth, we are located in a very convenient area for accessing a huge range of activities and great days out, as well as a wide selection of shops, many of which are locally owned and able to offer a fantastic range of local produce.
High Close has been under the same ownership since 1976 and many of our holiday home owners have been here a very long time, the longest in their 40th year on the park.
On the approach to High Close.
