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

we stopped off here as a starting off point for a tour around Scotland and once we arrived we were welcombed by the friendly wardens who showed us to our pitch in the rain and even assisted to erect my hoarding, now that's what I call service! the site is clean and tidy and has all the ameneties you need and the location is stunning and you are within wlaking distance of the lake which is also wonderful. we ate at a restaurant that is on the matina (you just walk through the car park adjacent to the camp and its on the lakeside) would high recommend as the food is good and reasonable. I would definitely recommend this site and will be coming back soon

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

Small and compact site, well kept by the very friendly wardens who did their upmost to accommodate our campervan with awning. The pitches are quite narrow, so anyone going with a wide awning are advised to contact the site with dimensions so a pitch wide enough can be reserved. Excellent for Lake Windermere, only a few meters away and the very busy town of Bowness only a few minutes walk. Lovely walks along the lakeside....great for dogs, and excellent cycle routes. Would definitely return. The wardens are a credit to the club.

On arrival our welcome was warm & friendly however it was clear that dogs were not welcome. Kids, well the toilet lock is high enough to ensure that only and adult can open it. Great for shops, walks etc food reasonable in most pubs caf� etc. Site was well kept, but don't let your dog pee on the grass?

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

I had driven in before spotting the sign saying site full, but by this time I was committed to entering and turning round before exiting. I stopped to apologise and make sure it was full and they had just had one pitch become free but could only manage one night, I grabbed it. The following day I had to leave that pitch but with a bit of reshuffling they managed to get me on a slightly smaller pitch for a second night. What a lovely helpful couple Kath & Dave are and the flower display was breathtaking. Thank you.
