The Old Post Office campsite is the perfect base for an expedition to Scafell Pike, the highest peak in England. The owner is unfailingly friendly and helpful, and the nearby Bridge Inn is the final piece in the jigsaw. Single Step Tours will be back!

Visited the campsite in my trusty vw campervan with my girlfriend. The owner was a nice chap, full of advice and a laid back character. Had hoped to catch some trout in the River where it runs through the site, but as I soon found out, there are no trout in the River at this point so leave your rod... More

Second visit to this small peaceful site in West Cumbria. Pitched by the river with plenty of room for our tent extension. The owner keeps the site very clean and tidy. showers have plenty of hot water and are clean. There is a pub just over the bridge and a tea room clise by. Lovely site to relax and unwind.

Stayed here with my partner for 3 nights so I'll go through the good points first: Location is wonderful, nestled by the river, good flat pitches, easy to access, facilities are pretty ok, toilet block whilst very small! Is clean and tidy and 50p for 10 minutes showering is good too. The free wifi is a bonus albeit it's slow... More

The campsite was just perfect for what we were looking for. We did a stop-over for a night en-route to Scotland. The owner was just lovely (and his dog, Georgie was gorgeous!) It was peaceful and situated right by the river. Would recommend - very close to Wast Water, great scenery.

Just returned from a week at this site and we loved it. Very quiet even though it must have been mostly full. Toilets and showers are always spotless and there is a freezer for ice blocks if you are camping. Pitches are fairly relaxed but can become crowded, especially if you want to be next to the river so we... More

Beautifully maintained and very well run, the Old Post Office Campground is one of the best sites I've been to in a very long time. The owner Gareth is a welcoming, relaxed and friendly guy always more than willing to help. The location is gorgeous, right next to the river Irt and a 5 minute drive to the southern shore... More
