Hoathwaite Campsite

With a hint of a 'wild camping' about it, Hoathwaite offers more of a back to basics experience than our other Lake District campsites, but its stunning location close to the shore of Coniston Water makes it a wonderful place to stay.

Wander down to the lake and look across to 'Wild Cat Island' as featured in Swallows and Amazons. Create your own adventures at this scenic campsite with plenty of things to see and do on your doorstep and in the local area.
Hoathwaite is now closed for the season. The site will re-open at Easter 2018.
