Lakeland Park Creates A Buzz

Guests at a top Lakeland holiday park are being asked to keep their eyes open for more than 7000 extra visitors winging their way to its grounds this year.

Skelwith Fold caravan park in Ambleside hopes that all the new arrivals will be ‘solitary’ bees, a species said by nature bodies to be under serious threat.

An imaginative habitation project has seen the park create thousands of tiny timber tunnels bored in hardwood logs which are now positioned in piles throughout the grounds.

According to park owner Henry Wild, Skelwith Fold’s 130 acres are now a safe haven where the harmless, nonaggressive insects can be helped to rebuild their numbers.

Skelwith Fold provides pitches for guests with touring caravans and motor homes plus caravan holiday homes for private owners.
