Stayed for 3 nights in one of the pods at the site with my girlfriend. The campsite is in an absolutely picturesque part of the Lake District, at one end of Lake Wastwater and at the base of Scafell Pike. The site as you arrive looks extremely clean and well laid out and even though we didn't have a car... More

My partner bought me two nights' stay here in our tent, so we could climb Scafell Pike and Great Gable. The site is really very good indeed. There was plenty of space available - you can basically pitch your tent wherever you'd like to. We went around to the far end of the site and were able to park our... More

Camped here for 3 days and would highly recommend this campsite. Beautifully situated at the foot of Scafell and a short walk from the lake, this campsite has everything you need if you want peace, quiet and stunning landscapes. Facilities at the site are excellent, good showers, clean loos and plenty of space to pick your ideal camping spot. It... More

What a gem of a campsite in stunningly beautiful surroundings! It attracts campers who enjoy the hills and mountains, and limits the size of groups. We climbed England's highest peak and canoed on Englands' deepest lake. Staff are very friendly and helpful, and facilities all in good condition. After 3 nights in a pod, we liked the place so much... More

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in August. The campsite is clean and well-maintained with good facilities. Neither of us had to queue for the toilets or for a shower in the mornings. There's a laundry room which we didn't need to use but it was good to know it was there. The staff at reception were helpful... More

My partner and I visited this campsite in July (bit lazy with the reviewing!!) and we both LOVED it! Firstly, we have been on those camping trips when you get soaked and cold- SO, we opted for a Camping Pod this time to avoid this happening again. And what a great decision we made. We hired the Family Pod -although... More

Basic camp site in a beautiful location. We stayed for three nights in our camper van the hard standing were under the trees which provided a good place to hang your washing line when trying to dry your wet walking gear, but not so good if you want to have your breakfast in the sun as they do block out...

Excellent campsite. Love the strict enforcement of 11 pm rule. Wardens v friendly and let me us their business phone when crap BT payphone stole my money. Nice distance between tents. Midges were not too bad a problem.

We booked this campsite at the last minute without realising quite how remote it was! And google maps took us over the Hardknott Pass, which was a scary experience at dusk, and totally unexpected! Booking online was easy and arriving out of hours wasn't a problem - our tent tag and gate card were left at reception. There are no... More

I spent a few days here and had a great time walking up the Scafells, Pillar circuit, etc. Although it was late July, the site was not too crowded - possibly due to its more remote location. The site has great views, and clean facilities with free hot showers. The small shop is well-stocked with food items, stuff you might... More
