Low Wray Campsite

A large spectacularly located campsite on the quiet western shore of Windermere, ideal for groups wishing to sail or canoe on the lake.

Great Langdale Campsite

At the head of the Great Langdale Valley, ideal for groups who wish to tackle the high fells: fell walking, ghyll scrambling and rock climbing are the main activities on your doorstep. Many of the climbing crags are within easy walking distance, with a vast variety of single and multi pitch routes for beginners to experts.

Both Langdale and Wasdale Valleys provide excellent bases for some spectacular winter mountaineering routes.
