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.

Although by a lake, this is not a peaceful country site. It is set in the heart of a busy lake district area. The area is ideal for those who want to be in the midst of everything in the lakes, with easy access to other areas. We enjoy being here because it is nice and easy pushing a wheelchair. The site itself is rather crowded, in my opinion this is to make maximum use of the space available. The policy of parking cars to the front of a unit makes manoeuverability from the narrow site road into your space, rather tight, especially when the site is full.
There is plenty of dog walking off site, but they are strict about any dogs fouling on site, presumably whether or not you clean up carefully!
Make sure your dogs can cross their legs and don't want out in the night.

This was our first trip with our dog who is a nervous little thing, we were concerned it would be too busy for him and that we'd only last one night, but it was great, quiet, friendly and well situated for quiet walks or visiting Bowness.
The staff were friendly, the site was immaculately kept.
What a lovely break we had and we look forward to our next visit.
