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.

We're sorry but this site can only accommodate one car per pitch at all times. Second vehicles will need to park in the pay and display next to the site.

Worth Noting

This site can only accommodate one car per pitch at all times. If you have more than one car or you are a visiting the camp site you will have to park your car in the pay and display next door to the site.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

A clean and tidy site set in a fantastic location, within a few minutes walk of the town with its restaurants and bars etc. Toilets and showers were clean and well kept. We had a brilliant four night stay and were blessed with great weather, which is quiet a surprise in March for the lakes. We cannot rate the location of the site highly enough and its no surprise that the site is always well booked.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

My only displeasure with booking this site is the apparent insistence of having to book a minimum of 3 nights. This is ok if you are retired but we are not. We had to book 3 nights last November and we had great problems in getting away from work on the Thursday. I was told that I could basically take a chance and just turn up on the Friday and might be able to get in. ( What if I had travelled the 144 miles from home and had not been able to get in). Maybe I could understand this in high season but surely not in November. The site certainly was nowhere near full on our weekend. Surely this 3 night minimum stay rule should be waived for members who have difficulty with annual leave allowances.
