This stunning site offers a wide-range of camping options including traditional pitches with waterfront, lake, meadow or woodland views, or camping pods, safari tents and space for campervans.
New for 2019 - try glamping with a difference in our two cosy tree tents in the woodland.

Canoes, rowing boats, sit-on kayaks and paddleboards are also available to hire as well as mountain bikes. Wood-fired pizzas are available through the summer holidays on Mondays,Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Leave the car behind for a few days and head out on your bikes or on foot along the lakeshore to Claife Viewing Station, or through scenic views to the Beatrix Potter Gallery at Hawkshead, or Allan Bank at Grasmere.
Winter closure: From 3 November, the site will be completely closed due to works on site. Our apologies for any disappointment whilst we make some improvements over the winter period. We re-open in 2020 on 27 March.
