Great Langdale Campsite

Great Langdale Campsite nestles below the towering Langdale Pikes, in one of the best walking and climbing areas in the Lake District. There's lots to see and do in the valley, and we even have our own National Trust pub, the Sticklebarn, just down the road.

Choose from a selection of grassy pitches on either side of a small beck in the main field, camp in our family or group fields, or maybe try one of our wooden pods which have heating and lighting - great for cold nights.

Please note that in 2018 we will be trialling a flexible pitching system, as we do already at Wasdale and Hoathwaite. Instead of being allocated a specific pitch when you book, you will be able to choose a pitch on arrival. This will allow more choice and better quality pitches whilst helping us to protect the land. We’d be keen to hear your feedback when you next visit.
