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.

A well maintained site with very friendly and helpful staff.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

A well maintained site with very friendly and helpful staff. Its only a short walk to the center of Bowness with plenty of shops and amenities. The ferry to the western shore of lake Windermere is also within walking distance. This area is very picturesque and ideal for walking and outdoor activities.

Most of the pitches are not wide enough to include caravan plus medium size awning.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

Most of the pitches are not wide enough to include caravan plus medium size awning. And you're not allowed to bang pegs into grass. The hard standing of my pitch was solid rock. So all in all virtually impossible to pitch an awning. NO DOG WALKS on site and lots of anti dog notices

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

We visit this campsite often for its close proximity to Bowness and it's good selection of restaurants , pubs and shopping . There are limited facilities on site ( showers are clean and warm ) there are no facilities for children and nowhere to sit outside should the weather be good ! The vans are packed in tightly and no room for PUP tents really We like it here because it's very easy walk to Bowness and also the lake ! The reception / shop is very small ( used only for emergencies) The reception staff are a little " brusque " we found not a warm friendly welcome as in other sites ! All in all a decent site for a base !

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

Because we pre-booked the pitch we had to book 5 nights even though it shows out of season in the campsite book! We only stayed 3 nights on site and were very disappointed to note that throughout our stay at least 30 pitches remained vacant. We were even more disappointed to see that none members pitched up on site for either 1 or 2 nights. Our final disappointment came when we found we could have stayed in a B & B for a couple of nights or on a nearby site with more facilities for the same or even less than we had spent on the 5 nights. I think the club needs to review its booking policies as discriminating against members who pre-book does not make either myself or my husband feel we wish to remain members of the club
