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.

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.

Nothing much to do on the site but Bowness centre is a 10 minute stroll away and 5 minutes...

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

Nothing much to do on the site but Bowness centre is a 10 minute stroll away and 5 minutes from Windermere harbour which has a great pub/restaurant called The Boathouse. Disappointed that you couldn't see the lake from our pitch but that was a minor issue, shower block spotlessly clean and never had to queue for a hot shower.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

This is a beautiful site in a very convenient location. The staff were especially helpful and we (myself, wife and Dog) loved it. Form arrival to departure everything was well managed, well cared for and enjoyed. The staff were very supportive and knowledgeable and always willing to help us get the most out of our Holiday. We will definitely be coming back :-) Thank you.

Superb location and facilities at this site. Sites are all spacious and relatively level. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Site location is great for walking short distance to main town, marina and its facilities and Ferry across to other side of Lake Windermere etc. Definitely be visiting it again in the future as there is so much to do and see as well as having views to die for and easy access to the rest of the Lake District.
