Stayed here in a group with 3 tents and a camper van for a long weekend and gad a glorious time. Mainly spent time remembering the good old days before kids when this would have been an ideal place to head off into the hills. As it was it was a great safe place for the kids to roam around... More

I love this campsite but unfortunately felt that is has been poorly managed by the NT. I do not understand the need for all the trees in the far field? Is it campsite for humans or for midges? The trees do nothing than provide a haven for midges AND worse block the wonderful views of the mountains. Please cut down... More

When I go camping I hope for certain things, clean showers and toilets, tidy location, great views. This site had all three. Great location if you love walking and staying in a rural location. On the web site it stated that the showers cost 20p, however they are free.

Not long back from our second pod experience. Have previously stayed at a pod on the Langdale NT campsite and really enjoyed it, decided to try the Wasdale site. We were not disappointed. Beautiful location and lucky enough to have one of the four pods in the top field with amazing views of the mountains. Even though the pods were... More

We recently stayed in a Pod on the NT Wasdale Campsite. Being photographers we were very excited about staying in the mountains practically at the foot of Skafell Pike. Unfortunately when we were shown our pod it overlooked the facilities block, what a disappointment. If the pod entrance had been located at the back it would have had an amazing... More

What can I say the experience was fantastic! The Pod was spacious and warm with heating and lighting. The Pods were located in area which was private and the staff were really helpful. The surrounding area was dramatic and beautiful! Well worth a visit as the campsite is quiet and facilities clean.

My sister booked this site and said it would be a perfect to begin our ascent of Scarfell Pike. She wasn't wrong! The drive to Wasdale campsite is stunning. Heading off the beaten track and away from the usual Lakes traffic I drove along some extraordinary roads taking us through the mountains to come out at Wasdale. Driving along the... More

This really is a hidden gem! A beautiful, quiet and well organised campsite. It was just lovely to fall asleep to the sound of owls and to wake up to the most stunning views. The shop is well stocked and the staff knowledgeable about weather conditions and local walking. We loved their 'no noise after 11pm' and 'no audible devices'... More

After staying at another NT campsite the previous nights, we were very surprised at the need to pay for the showers, especially as the two sites were the same price. An unnecessary annoyance in my opinion. In the female showers- shower 4 has the best shower to 20p ratio, lasting more than twice as long as shower 1 reducing the... More

Simply brilliant camp site. My first experience camping and could not have picked a better one. The site is a field with trees scattered throughout meaning you can have privacy easily (we camped in between a set of trees and it was brilliant. The views around the site are also incredible and amazing to wake up to. The facilities are... More
