Campsites in the Lake District

The Lake District is a geologically complex, mountainous region in North West England, famous for its magnificent scenery, lakes, stunning waterfalls, ancient monuments, lush green hillsides and mountains (fells). It is also well known for its associations with the poetry and writing of William Wordsworth, who was inspired by the exquisite beauty of the area, and Beatrix Potter who made her home in Lakeland.

Our campsites in the Lake District really offer the perfect combination of peace and quiet with the option to get more active.

More about the Lake District

The Lake District was designated a National Park in 1951 and is the largest in England. The park includes Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England, and Britain’s favourite view Wastwater, England’s deepest lake. A walker’s paradise, the Lake District is just 40 miles across and approximately 100 miles in circumference with over 1,800 miles of well-signed footpaths for all levels of ability to choose from.

For a contrast from the peace and tranquillity of the Lakeland landscape, there are many vibrant towns and villages to visit, nestled by the side of a lake or in a valley basin.
