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.

The site only has hard-standings and mostly used by caravans and motor-homes. There were a couple of tents but they had to go on to the hard-standings so perhaps not so comfortable as grass. There didn't seem to be anything on site for children. The site is within easy walking distance to Bowness, the lake, restaurants and shops. Even at this time of year most everything was open and the boats were running. In the summer it becomes difficult to park in Bowness despite many car parks so being able to walk in is a bonus.

A terrific spot. Welcoming staff and great access to the lake and the ferry across for lovely walks on the other side - Claife Heights, Hill Top (Beatrix Potter's house). No need to use a car at all. Plenty of good restaurants in Bowness. Great local ales!
