Camping can be a great adventure, but getting lost on the way is never much fun. Find out how you can reach our campsite, whether you're traveling by car, public transport or hiking.

Arriving by car:
From Ambleside, follow the A593 road. At Skelwith Bridge, turn right onto the B5343. The campsite is approximately 6 miles down this road on the left-hand side a few hundred yards after you pass the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel and Sticklebarn pub. If you reach the Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel you've gone too far.
Arriving by public transport:
Trains to the Lake District terminate at Windermere railway station. From Windermere take the 505 or 599 bus to Ambleside, and from Ambleside you can pick up the 516 Langdale Rambler.
