About Great Langdale CampsiteA relaxed, natural site set in the heart of the Great Langdale Valley.
With the towering Langdale Pikes looming above it, Great Langdale Campsite is a particularly dramatic spot to pitch up for a holiday in the outdoors. The site offers a wide selection of grassy pitches suitable for families and friend groups, as well as a collection of wooden camping pods, perfect for a winter break.
This well-equipped site boasts two toilet and shower blocks, washing-up areas, a laundry and drying room, a bouldering wall and a children's play area.
Ideally located for walkers keen to explore the Lake District, we also offer an orienteering course around the site. For those better suited to cycling, bring your bike and hit the trails.
After a busy afternoon exploring, head over to our very own Sticklebarn pub for a well-earned pint and hearty food - just a 10-minute walk away.
