Great Langdale Campsite rules

Family campers

We like everyone who stays at our campsite to have an enjoyable time, so we politely ask that you observe a few simple campsite rules.

Arrival times

If you're arriving at our campsites without booking in advance, we recommend you aim to arrive at the beginning of reception opening times to secure a pitch, or to phone ahead for information.

Visitors must register at reception (before pitching) during the following hours:

Summer (1 Apr – 31 Oct)

Sunday – Thursday : 3pm – 7pm
Friday : 3pm – 9pm
Saturday : 3pm – 7pm

Winter (1 Nov – 31 Mar)

Sunday – Thursday : 3pm – 5pm
Friday : 3pm – 8pm
Saturday : 3pm – 6pm

These hours are applicable for both advanced bookings and first come, first served visitors.

If you have pre-booked your pitch and circumstances beyond your control prevent you from arriving within these times, please contact the campsite on 015394 37668 and staff will do their best to assist.

Departure times

Unfortunately the time will come when you have to head home. Please leave by 11am on your day of departure. If you wish to stay an extra night, please inform reception before 10am (reception is open from 8am every day).


To protect the natural beauty of the site, parking is available in designated areas away from tent pitches, but near enough so it’s not too difficult to carry your camping gear from your car.

Quiet please

We ask that our visitors are considerate to their neighbours at all times, but ‘quiet please’ between 11pm and 7am.


We like to create a feeling of space around the campsite (it’s also a condition imposed by the local authority to comply with fire regulations), so please don't pitch within six metres of the next tent.

Party sizes

The size of a party (except for organised groups) is restricted to a maximum of four adults and four children.

Organised groups such as scouts, Duke of Edinburgh award groups and similar can be accommodated at certain times of year, but we have to reluctantly say no to large groups of friends and families.

Four-legged friends

Dogs are welcome on site (maximum of two per party), but please notify us at the time of booking and keep them on a lead at all times. A charge will be incurred for each dog.


For obvious reasons, campfires are not allowed, but barbecues are permitted, provided they are raised off the ground.

Small print

In addition to the site rules above we also have some terms and conditions that apply to your booking. Please read through them. Camping terms and conditions (PDF / 0.1MB) download .
