Eskdale site facilities
We’re really looking forward to welcoming you back as we begin to reopen Eskdale Campsite from Saturday 4 July. We’d like to say things will be business as usual, but initially, we won’t have all of our usual services and activities available. Please read this page carefully as it may mean you need to bring a few extra things with you.
Please park up and report to reception before pitching your tent.
Reception hours will be reduced so if you find that the door is shut, we’ve introduced a self check-in procedure which means you will find an envelope with your name on the clearly-marked arrivals board. Inside your envelope you’ll find all the information you need to get settled in and start your holiday, including a map showing you where to pitch.
Staff will be still be on site from 8am – 6pm for any queries you may have. To maintain social distancing, please ensure that you pitch at least 6m from fellow campers.
Shop and takeaway food
There is a limited range of essentials and retail offer but we would advise to bring supplies. Currently, we're not able to provide a takeaway food service. We’ll update this page as soon as we can with any news. There is a 'one in, one out' system in place to ensure social distancing.
If you choose to freeze your own ice blocks, we have a freezer available at reception.
Toilet/shower blocks and extra facilities
To ensure social distancing at Eskdale, we’ve hired in 4 extra portaloos and additional showers.
Laundry and drying facilities
Washing and drying room facilities are situated in the facilities block. The drying room will be available in wet weather or by request. Clothes lines are situated opposite the laundry room door.
Pot washing facilities are available at the toilet and shower block with plenty of hot water on tap. Please give the washing-up station a quick wipe down after you've finished, so it's nice and clean for the next person to use.
Electric hook-up to tents
There are a limited number of electric hook ups for tents.
This is usually available in the reception and facility block area (currently out of operation).
Local information point and public telephone
These can be found in the wash up area. Our staff will be happy to answer questions and provide any extra information you need about the campsite and local area.
Chemical waste facilities
Our chemical waste facility for campervans is located at the side of the toilet block.
Children's adventure playground
Our play areas will remain closed for the time being. We’re sorry for any disappointment this may cause and we’ll reopen these when it’s safe to do so.
There’ll be new notices in place in communal areas and we ask campers to kindly observe these to allow everyone on site to have a relaxing holiday. We’d like to gently remind campers that for the safety of guests and staff, to observe social distancing guidance at all times.
