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

We stayed here Monday and Tuesday night this week. A brilliant base to do Scafell Pike, (or any of the other hills in close proximity) the campsite was clean and the staff were really helpful, great shower block and washing facilities too! Just remember to take plenty of 20p's for the shower! This wasn't a problem as we had seen... More

It feels like you are at the land's end. Long and winding road to follow until you reach the camp site but it is definitely worth the journey. Well stocked shop, friendly staff, nice and clean site. You should however get ready for midges - It was even worse than in Scotland, but if you are brave enough to cope... More

Just spent the weekend camping at the NT campsite at Wasdale Head. Many pitches spread over a wide area, shop well stocked at reception and good shower/toilet block with washing up facilities. Possibly a little more expensive than most campsites but worth the extra to have a decent shower on hand if nothing else (although it does cost 20p per... More

I stayed at the campsite overnight Monday & Tuesday, whilst walking the Great Gable. The facilities and location are great for walks on numerous fells, and both Richard & Alex host the site very professionally and with great humour. The only downside the MIDGES, but hey Mother Nature has to eat. Thanks again, it was great, clean toilet blocks, good... More
