Before you read on: Our ‘quirky stays’ holiday collection showcases a handful of child and family friendly holidays which we think are totally unique compared with the standard cottages, hotels and lodges we usually feature. Because these holidays are so unusual, they don’t necessarily come with all the trappings of the other holidays on Parent Friendly Stays – swimming pools, play areas, hot tubs and so on (though some still do). What we do think, though, is that they offer a superb and utterly memorable destination for you and your family; and for that reason alone we think they’re well worth inclusion as a parent friendly holiday destination.
This holiday offers unusual, exciting accommodation in a former fire truck set in a spectacular location at the southern foot fells of the magnificent Blencathra.
The property has a lounge area with smart TV, a well equipped kitchen, a childen’s bedroom with fire engine bedsteads, and a master bedroom upstairs with king-size bed and another TV. Outside is a decked patio area with seating area.
For an idea of prices, a week’s holiday for four during the summer peak costs around £890, while a long weekend out of season can be found for as little as £380.
