Site rules

Walkers with view back to Wasdale campsite

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.

Autumn/ winter arrival times

Our reception and shop is open every day although times vary during the low season. In the absence of a member of staff, new pre-booked arrivals will receive a welcome envelope containing site information.

Pre-booked pods, tents and campervans

A welcome envelope will be available for you to pick up outside of shop / reception - the opening hours are anytime after 12 noon. If you arrive late, please consider others when setting up.

Please be aware that the access barrier card issued in the pack ceases to operate after 11pm.

Non-booked tents and campervans

If space allows, you may pitch up after 12 noon and call in at reception during opening hours (maximum group size is 4). Please do not pitch if the 'FULL' sign is displayed.

Due to the limited number of hard standing spaces on the campsite, non-booked campervanners are recommended to call ahead to check availability.

Departure times

When the time comes to pack up and head home, we ask that you vacate your pitch by 11am. 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 easy 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 spaciousness around the campsite (it's also a condition imposed by the local authority to comply with fire regulations), so please allow a six metre gap between tents.

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.

Bring a torch!

It's very dark here due to the rural location with no lighting, so a torch is essential at this time of year.

Four-legged friends

Dogs are welcome on site (maximum of two per party), but you must notify us at the time of booking. 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 .
