Welcome to Lightwater Tarns Country Park

Why not own your own piece of paradise, which is ideal for your retirement or semi-retirement in our beautiful part of the English Lake District, with peace and tranquility as a bonus?

At our luxury holiday home park, you can own your own piece of tranquility, knowing that you can take a break whenever you wish throughout our long season, which runs from 1st March - 14th January every year.

Lightwater Tarns Country Park accommodates luxury homes over a 5-acre area in the Lake District.

The sun is shining in the Lake District!

It's not just in Wimbledon where the sun is being enjoyed!

Like the rest of the UK , Lightwater Tarns Country Park is also enjoying the hot weather - with temperatures up into the 30's , Jen took the sunny weather as an opportunity to photograph the Wildlife on the main pond. We had been informed of 10 Turfed Ducklings on the pond but we are still to have any photographic evidence of this! We do however have plenty of Mallards with their young, Moorhens, Oyster Catchers and our well documented Canadian Geese and 3 Goslings (More pictures can be seen in the Gallery)

Summers nearly here

We had some lovely weather a few weeks ago where some much needed painting, spraying and tidying was done around the park. Since then we have desperately been waiting for some sunshine so we could silage. (remember we are also a fully functioning farm!) The mowers started yesterday and we have just got all the grass into the pit ready to get the sheeting on. All ready for the cows winter feed. The forecast is predicting sunshine for the next week so hopefully summer is finally upon us.....

Welcome to the New Season

At Lightwater Tarns Country Park we have a long 10.5 month season which operates from 1st March to 14th January each year, this means our owners benefit from being able to use their Lodges/Caravans over the festive period. During the closed season we take the opportunity to refresh the park and surrounding areas to ensure it is always to the highest standards. Since we re-opened yesterday we have experienced snow and sunshine, along with an abundance of wildlife. Our resident Deer have been out playing, as have the Pheasant, Swans, Canadian Geese, Oyster Catchers and March Hares .......
