Subtropical Swimming Paradise and Village Square, Whinfell Forest

Whinfell Forest,
our award-winning Lake District Village

 

In its beautiful setting on the edge of the Lake District National Park, Whinfell Forest is a haven of nature’s finest and rarest treasures. It’s a sanctuary for endangered red squirrels and home to a rare orchid called Creeping Lady’s Tresses.
The Village Centre is a lively focus for all sorts of indoor activities, with a fine tradition of live entertainment all year round in the Green Room. On the stunning lake you can try your hand at Kayaking or take to the water in a Pedalo, before warming up with a drink and something delicious at the Lakeside Inn, our waterfront gastro pub that enjoys unparalleled views.
