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. This award-winning site offers a wide selection of grassy pitches suitable for families and friends, as well as a collection of wooden camping pods.
This well-equipped site boasts two newly upgraded toilet and shower blocks, washing-up areas, a laundry and drying room. There is one electric car charging point.
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.
