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.

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

Checked in by friendly wardens and shown to pitch. The site was very busy as it was Bank Holiday, this meant it felt a little tight especially with members having to park their vehicles behind their units. The site is ideally situated for a short walk into bustling Bowness and two minutes from the ferry. The weather was perfect for our visit and we did use the ferry to venture to Grisedale and Hawkshead (both excellent for walking and with good factilities too). Bowness is situated on Windermere with plenty of retail therapy and good selections of bars/restaurants. The site and facilities are very clean although the toilet block does look tired and hopefully the club will refurbish this soon.

We found this well signposted site and warmly welcomed by the staff, we were directed to our pitch to set up. The toilets are very clean as are all the facilities, the disabled especially roomy and accessible. There is a nice walk into town and wheelchair friendly but once in town it's very steep climb for electric scooters. Very dog friendly, one very minor critism is the pitches are slightly close together but it's a small price to pay for such a lovely clean site with very friendly staff who are always willing to help. Nth is is our first visit but won't be our last.

Extremely rude campsite staff. Not at all welcoming.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

Extremely rude campsite staff. Not at all welcoming. Not at all a relaxed site considering its meant to be a holiday retreat felt like an army base. I was ten minuets late to depart the site because I was porey being sick in the local toilet and my other half herd the staff calling myself and my partner , not realising we was in the toilet and herd the whole thing. Only to be then apologied to by one of the staff in embassement. We had our dogs on long leads as asked one evening enjoying a drink outside and was Rudly interumpted by a staff member shining a touch at us going mad because it looked like the dogs where off their Leeds only to see they wasn't. We wasn't made at all welcome . It's such a shame because it was a great site and local to every thing but I wouldn't stay again if some one paid me to. I am a business owner and I would never make any one feel as unwanted or uncoftable as they did.
