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.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

The facilities were fine but the camping area was littered with small and large pieces of glass. Reported this the first morning we were there and someone did go over but it was still unacceptable with many pieces of glass and pottery - I removed a bottle base the size of my hand: having children with us was not great. The other problem for campers was the depth of soil - very difficult to get a peg in more than a couple of cm - lucky it wasn't windy.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

This was our second visit to the site and I was not disappointed. Very friendly site wardens, nothing was too much trouble for them and they kept the facilities very, very clean, checking on them several times daily. Being in a motorhome, the location was ideal to catch buses to all the surrounding places of interest and the lakes. Would not hesitate to go again and to recommend the site to all our friends.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

Really convenient location for all the main Lakeland attractions including Lake Cruises, Beatrix Potter Attraction, Brockhole, Hill Top etc, as well as walks of all ability levels. Bus stop close at hand if you're using a motorhome. Good dog walks off site. Just a short stroll into Bowness for shops. We had a 3 yr old and a 1 yr old with us and we were given use of the disabled facilities for washing and showering. The only improvement we could recommend would be to somehow fit a small bath in for toddlers and babies and then the site would be totally perfect! Thanks.

Brilliant five night stay at Braithwaite Fold, not only was it a warm welcome, we made an error booking our son in and it was soon put right and he was placed next to us, with our friends next to him. Wonderful location used car once for afternoon tea at Lindeth Fell Country House Hotel, which I highly recommend. Will be back very soon. Thank you so much for making it such an enjoyable stay. Well done to all who took part in The Great North Swim.
