Tipis and Bell Tent at Wasdale Campsite

For an alternative camping adventure, get comfy in a spacious bell tent or a tipi equipped with a wood-burning stove that can turn a cold night into a cosy, snug experience.

What's inside the tipis?

The tipis have a double bed and two single futons with mattress covers. Each one contains a woodburning stove with a starter pack of eco logs, some lighting, table, and chairs. You'll find a full inventory at the bottom of this page.

What do we need to bring?

Think of a tipi as a replacement for your tent. You'll need to bring everything you would bring if you were camping in your tent, including bedding, towels, pots and pans and stove etc. We recommend you bring some extra lighting for your stay and extra blankets as it can be chilly at night. A wind-up lantern or extra torch would be ideal.

How many people can sleep inside?

The tipis can accommodate up to 3 adults or for families of up to 2 adults and 2 children (maximum number of people is 4).


One of the new tipis is dog-friendly - if you'd like to book this one, you just need to make sure you select the option for 'new dog-friendly tipis' online. There is a maximum dog occupancy of 2.
