Pitch on the shores of Lake Windermere and explore the southern Lakes from this site.
Braithwaite Fold campsite sits on the eastern shore of Lake Windermere in the heart of the beautiful Lake District and is a stone’s throw from the linked towns of Bowness and Windermere.
Our compact site has 66 level hardstanding with electric hook up pitches – and is well laid out. There are modern facilities including an undercover washing up area, laundry and disabled facilities. 3 grass pitches for tents only.
Pitch here and you won’t be short of things to do. For starters you can enjoy the many attractions of the lake right from the campsite. Enjoy a steam cruise or have a go at dinghy sailing, power boating or windsurfing. Meet Peter Rabbit and friends at the World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness on Windermere.
Catch the chain ferry to the western shore for the National Trust’s Claife Heights, ideal for walking and cycling, the pretty village of Hawkshead - home to Hill Top where Beatrix Potter once lived - and Grizedale Forest Park with its Go Ape high wire adventure area.
Fell Foot Park at the lake’s southern tip is perfect for picnics and paddling. Near here you’ll also find the Lakeside and Haverthwaite steam railway and the Lakes Aquarium.

Busted for 4 nights forecast was for gales , rain and potential flooding in the area.Arrived in the rain, wardens very friendly and helpful.Some of the pitches are a little narrow so ensure that the wardens know the dimensions outfit.Easy walk into Bowness where you can get a boat to other areas of the lake. Visit to the Motor museum is recommended ( you can buy a combined ticket).There is. Cinema and Theatre too and you can get a bus to Windermere for the Lakeland store. Lots of nice places to eat.Great for a visit at any time of year.
