If you find yourself in the Lakes in poor weather, Lets face it, this is highly likely, The Travelers rest is the place to camp for the afternoon.
The food is big and hearty and the beers are good.
If you camp here on a cold Sunday afternoon like I did, with sleet and rain howling around, you can amuse yourself by trying to understand why anyone would climb Helvellyn in such weather. Just sit back and observe the clothing that some will hill walk in or laugh at the bedraggled sad looking kids whos parents think they are Chris Bonnington.
The Travelers rest is the first watering hole in the village coming down off the fells. They sell plenty of hot soup. So, for a true lakeland experience go here.
