About Low Wray Campsite

Nestled on the western shoreline of Lake Windermere

Low Wray Campsite occupies one of the finest locations in the Lake District, with access to the shores of Lake Windermere and Wray Castle. 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, hammocks and space for campervans.

Facilities at the site include a shop, three toilet and shower blocks, laundry facilities, washing-up areas, a children's adventure playground, bike hire, and when the weather permits, a wood fired pizza oven and smokehouse BBQ and grill. Canoes, rowing boats, sit-on kayaks and paddleboards are also available to hire.

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.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
