I can't imagine there being a better place to camp in England. The site staff were really halpful and served up the most amazing bacon baguettes in the morning! The showers were better than mine at home and the toilet block was always kept as clean as possible. We are already planning a return in a few weeks.

After visiting this campsite, I'm surprised to see its got some bad reviews. We were in what's called as the 'open only when busy field' which was lovely it was surrounded by nothing but valleys and the ground was perfect to pitch up on! We went with another couple (we are all mid twenties) and found the campsite to be... More

Love this campsite. The location is stunning, the shop is brilliant, friendly, accommodating staff. There is a choice of different fields - allocated pitches for pre-bookings, a 'first come first serve' field for people who just turn up, a family field with playground, and a field for school groups etc. All this makes it seem small and friendly despite the...

Lovely campsite at the bottom of the dramatic peaks in the lakes. Perfect spot for walking and under half an hour from Ambleside where the lovely staff advised me on the perfect spot to launch my Kayak.

Amazing site, excellent staff, clean facilities and lovely soft grass to put the pegs into :). Plenty of space for tents of all shapes and sizes. A great stocked shop which is useful as the nearest village is about 1/2 hour walk away. The views alone make this place amazing. Bacon rolls in he morning of the early riser is... More

We spent a long week at the Great Langdale National Trust Campsite. We had booked a pitch which was located in the advance booking area, one of the nicest ones. The campsite is nice, if a bit crowded and some pitches are very close to the parking. Nights are very cold. The facilities are excellent, good showers, drying room and... More

Very well run campsite with everything you need. Helpful staff, bacon sandwiches in the morning and 3 x pubs within walking distant were the icing on the cake to an all round relaxing break. Would highly recommend staying here !

Nice campsite in Great Langdale, great facilities (showers are plentiful and powerful, also has a drying room and a place for washing up).Onsite shop is well stocked and it's a short walk to nearest pub. Relatively quiet and the scenery is fantastic. Only drawback is the abundance of killer midges near the stream, but in summer that is going to... More
