So pleased I came across this campsite, so reasonably priced too. We stayed Friday night and left Saturday at 8.30pm, the owners are so friendly and helpful. Beautiful setting perfect for a lovely walk to grasmere or Ambleside, we did both and then went for a swim in loughrigg tarn which is right next door afterwards, it was awesome! No... More

A stunning location nestled between amazing mountain views and a picturesque tarn. Perfect start to many of the fantastic walks and only a 45 minute stroll into Grasmere. So beautiful you forget their isn't a shower and just jump in the tarn instead.

Superb campsite with perfect surroundings for our trip out of the city lights to view the Perseids. Friendly and well maintained. Really made us feel welcome and cant fault the path markings off the fells to get us back to camp in the early hours.

I stayed here when I was 14 during a duke of Edinburgh exped and returned when I was 23 and I was so pleased it hadn't changed. This is what true camping is about! Water tap, toilet, and rolling fields!!

Absolutely beautiful, the views are breathtaking, not in the middle of no where, with an easy walk or 5 minuet car drive into Ambleside. The owners are lovely, the toilets are extremely clean with no queue's!!!! (even when we went which was the start of July school holiday- peak time). The tarn which is only a 2 minuet walk from...

Ive been coming since before I was even born, again and again I return to what I truly believe is the best campsite in the lakes! Its no frills back to basics camping, x2 toilets and a outside sink & a rope swing for the kids. The tarn is great for swimming in and a pub 10 min walk away.... More

I first found this campsite about 20+ years ago completely by accident and have been coming back several times a year, every year since, always with family or friends and never disappointed. Ok so its not a bowling green to pitch on and there was no showers but its cheap, friendly, peaceful and quiet, has its own private lake and... More

No drinking no swearing and dont kick your ball over the fence cos the grumpy old farmer will not give u it back and its like being on a school trip lights off at 11 sharp. Ques likely for the poorly maintained 2 outside toilets at crucial times but if you like very basic camping then u will love this... More

Don't go here! We want it to ourselves! No noise or fire after 11. Families only, no groups. Site is checked at 11 and farmer gets shirty if you ignore curfew. Inherently beautiful site even when it's wet. Take a piece of rope and make a swing. Talbot pub 10 minutes walk but you may scrape your nose on the... More
