Picturesque Gillside Farm

Picturesque Gillside Farm

This camping site has to offer one of the best views of the lake district. You can pitch your tent on the smooth grazing fields where rabbits and sheep roam undisturbed and admire the beauty of Ullswater’s Valley. The farm is placed in the Hellvelyn’s shadow and is surrounded by lovely scenery. The farmhouse can supply you every morning with fresh milk and eggs and you can enjoy a good English breakfast in the hut by the walking path.

Great Langdale National Trust Campsite – Walking Paradise

This is a typical National Trust Campsite and you can be sure that it comes with the typical setting in a glen surrounded by a multitude of slopes , walking paths and peaks. In case you want to try typical walks ask for a map of the walking paths from the reception. This is the place for campers with a more adventurous nature because you are dared to conquer four different peaks that cast their shadows over the tent pitching area.

The Best Kept Secret – Eden Valley

Cumbria can be proud of this little corner of camping heaven. Placed next to a glacier valley it offers a 6 pitch camping area. In case you would like to have some privacy, a private camping spot near the road can be rented in advance. The amazing sunset makes this place a jewel of Cumbria camping sites.

Chapel House Farm – Back to the Basics

In case you are fond of simple things and want to have an old school camping expedition, this beautiful farm is the place to pitch your tent. You can walk along the lakeside and enjoy the untouched beauty of the scenery. The Borrowdale Valley is perhaps the most beautiful site in the Lake district and the camping area is placed on a smooth meadow surrounded by amazing looking woods. You should know that you will have to carry your camping gear because cars are not allowed inside the camping area.
