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.

My husband and I stayed here recently. The location of the campsite is lovely for Bowness and Windermere and surrounding areas to visit. The showers and toilets are also lovely, in the ladies, 4 showers and numerous toilets and wash basins, always clean and tidy. Site appears always full with shower queuing during am periods. The pitches are very tight, barely enough room for awnings on each pitch and cars have to be parked at foot of each pitch making the slim roadway around the site very tight when towing! There is no kids play area, which makes for (some) bored kids racing bikes, skateboards and scooters around the slim roadway (very close to cars/vehicles). Also running over / in between pitches and electrical cables. Due to close proximity of units (tents and caravans) and a small site, very noisy every day of our visit i.e. Car / caravan alarms, smoke alarms, kettles whistling, dogs barking, kids crying/playing etc, perhaps not the campsite for full relaxation, hence not recommending to others.

Been staying at this site for about 3 years now and suddenly in 2015, according to the wonderful booking the club has designed (or rather nailed together), the site no longer accepts caravans 26 feet long. Have just booked a 3 night break at Fallbarrow just down the road (and closer into town), so I think I will be using Fallbarrow much more. Yet more bookings the CCC has lost. 3 years since the state of the art booking system was introduced and its still garbage. No wonder the club is losing money hand over fist.

This site is ideally situated whether you want to walk, cycle or tour the area by car. The wardens really look after their visitors and are very helpful to everyone, especially the elderly. The site is complemented by beautiful flower arrangements all managed by the team. There has only ever been one problem, the TV reception. We don't holiday to watch television but we do like to keep up with the news. However, it's nothing to do with the site, it's the area. I believe the Lakes don't have the best reception area.

Lovely ferry trip over to Ambleside and reasonably priced. Within walking distance of Windermere and the home of "Lakeland".
Plenty of places to eat, comprehensive choice of restaurants. Beautiful walks along the lake to enjoy a picnic or a paddle or just the scenic route into the town!
All in all a brilliant location.
