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.

Great spot for walking the Fells. 2 pubs in easy walking distance - with great food and beer! Do your shop before arriving as, apart from small site shop, nearset store is miles away. Its a nice site, all grass and gently slopes in some areas. We went on various walks directly from the site - great not having to drive anywhere.

Good bus service from close to the site. Lots of places to eat out would recommend The Water Wheel at Ings & do try their own beer. Plenty of other good places to eat within walking distance. A visit to Allen Bank & Wray Castle(NI)
properties nearby are very worthwhile & you can have input regarding there development. An easy walk around Tarn Hows will give great pleasure & and they have 2 motorised chairs for those who find walking hard. Take the ferry over the lake from near the site and walk along the lake side, great views to be had. Enjoy
