Booking notes

Booking fee

Please note that we charge a fee of £2.50 per booking to guarantee your pitch. This fee is non-refundable in the event of cancellation.

Note for National Trust members

We're sorry but we cannot offer a reduction on fees for members. All profit generated from campsite fees supports our conservation projects.

Booking more than one tent?

If you'd like to book a pitch next to your friends, please put their full name and the date of their stay in the special requests box. Please note that the maximum group size of 4 adults still applies.

If you wish to book more than one tent adjacent to each other, please book two individual pitches and then request that you would like these together in the comments box. Please note that we can only accept one tent per pitch to ensure 6 metre spacing for safety reasons.

Special requests cannot be guaranteed but we will make every effort to meet your requirements.

Booking a campervan pitch?

All pitches are hardstanding. The maximum size campervan we can generally accept is 6m long and 2m wide. For larger vehicles, please contact the campsites directly. Chemical toilet disposal facilities available only at Hoathwaite and Wasdale (no vehicle access at disposal point).

Terms & conditions

To make a booking, you must be over 18 and the size of any party is restricted to a maximum of 4 adults and 4 children.

To protect the peaceful nature of our sites, we have a ‘no noise’ rule between the hours of 11pm and 7am.
