Pitch on the shores of Windermere and explore the southern Lakes from this site.

Our Braithwaite Fold Club campsite sits on the eastern shore of 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.

Positive : Excellent location which means for a weekend you can be car free, with walks to town and country. The site is lovely and clean and well maintained. Negative : A little on the squashed side and the grass could get very muddy. Well worth a visit.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

Opened early as an experiment which obviously worked at half term in february, as units were turned away. 10 mins walk to the cruise terminal at Bowness and 5 more into the town itself. 10 mins walk to car ferry and good walking area. Very welcoming staff but very busy. Toilets clean as expected. Only downside was TV reception which I could not get, but in the Lakes there are plenty of other things to do. Definitely would go back although I think the pubs/restaurants will be packed at easter and summer as they were quite busy - be prepared or book in advance, if that 's your thing..
