If you want to climb scafell pike and are camping, this site is the best you could ever hope for as the walk up the mountain starts at this campsite! the toilets/showers are excellent and the national trust Rangers based onsite can give you loads of info on walks in the area. There is a weather bulletin posted outside the... More

A really beautiful campground with awesome trails and a spectacular view. Pods are warm and cozy with a nice porch for cooking and relaxing on. A note to people driving up from the south/east - it might look shorter to drive over Birker Fell but it is a bit treacherous on a single track road with many huge cows that... More

Decided to come up here because it had no phone signal ! It is out of the way but a lovely spot, its pretty quiet, the showers/toilet block was excellent, lots of hot water and clean. Plenty of amazing walks in the area, the little site shop sells everything you may have forgotten and there's the Inn about 20 minutes... More

We stayed in one of the little camping pods, which are heaven after a day out in the rain! Lots of room for a couple, little heater and lamp provided, and loads of room on the porch for a stove. Toilets and shower clean, little camp shop had loads of goodies and last minute walking necessities, the road to scafell... More

Found this gem last minute, stayed a couple of nights and waited for good weather to climb Scafell Pike. Good facilities and plenty of room. Natural feel and plenty of birds visited us by our tent each day, the robins were brave and went into the tent a couple of times! Very pleased we found this place and reasonable cost... More

Arriving was slightly confusing.. Whilst the campsite wast clearly signposted there was a sign for a public footpath which made us confused. It was however the correct way! Checking in was easy with wonderful Staff and easy access. Great pub nearby (would recommend Burgers and the Pie!) The website says it is a 10 minute walk however it took us... More

Have just returned from this campsite and found it to be an amazing place. The setting and views are stunning and it is a perfect base from which to climb Scafell Pike and do many other beautiful walks.. followed by a well earned pint in the Wasdale Head Inn. The site facilities are spotless and well maintained, with a small... More

The next day as we opened the doors of our camper...there was Sarfell Pike and it had to be climbed. six hours later and pretty exhaust the warm showers and lovely clean facilities were most welcome. The next day for a bit of a rest we thought we would walk... More

Love this place. Surrounded by beautiful mountains with easy access to scafell pike. Lovely clean facilities and a shop selling more or less anything you need. Plenty of space between tents. A few too many midges for my liking, even in the pouring rain, but there was always the pub to hide in, selling good pub grub. Will be back.
