Green motorhomes deserve red carpet, says Cumbria park

FRAGILE AREAS such as the Lake District should be doing all they can to the owner of a major Cumbria holiday park.

Henry Wild of Skelwith Fold in Ambleside says that people using such vehicles are helping to drive up the use of transport considered more environmentally friendly.

Buses, bicycles and two legs are the preferred ways of exploring Lakeland for many of Cumbria’s thousands of motorhome users each year, says Henry.

As such, he says, moto the atmosphere.

Last summer, Henry reports, moto his park grew by 8% compared with the previous year, and are fast gaining ground with many younger couple and families.

But despite their size, he believes, motorhomes should be hailed as green holiday heroes – as long as they opt for holiday park pitches and not roadsides or public car parks.

“Much of the to their destination, and who are now enjoying the sights,” said Henry.

“By contrast, moto go.

“The same will apply in many other rural areas, and suggests that we should be encouraging moto be at risk,” added Henry.

However, he adds the caveat that “wild campers” – those who prefer a roadside to a legitimate holiday park – should be discouraged, not least because of the visual pollution they cause.

Skelwith Fold is taking part in a national campaign, mirrored by many local authorities, to put across the message that a park is a much more practical and comfortable option for such vehicles.

In contrast touring pitches.

Moto the much wider availability of hire and their promise of a more adventurous holiday experience.

To help motorhome guests stay mobile, the park – just a short stroll from Ambleside – offers electrically powered bikes for hire, and provides information on local transport services.

It has also provided additional “super pitches” to accommodate longer length vehicles.

Skelwith Fold was crowned last year as Lakeland’s top gold level.

As well as to own.

Non-polluting electric vehicles are used by the park which holds the gold David Bellamy Conservation Award
