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

Having just returned from a lovely week at Braithwaite Fold,probably one of the most quiestest sites we have stayed on,even for August.The town of Bowness is a 5 to 10 minute walk away for lake steamers,shops and restaurants ect. and the passenger ferry (50p) to the opposite side for more walks.A walk to Brant Fell is worth the effort for the views over Windemere.As stated before cars are park at the end of your pitch giving it a cramped look especially if you have to reverse onto your pitch with a vehicle opposite,but do not let this put you off!! Nothing to do with the site, but I did end up towing through Windermere instead of following the rather basic map in the handbook.I followed the roadsigns (and sat nav)for Bowness along with a couple of other caravanners in front and behind and ended in busy town traffic.It is not very clear on roadsigns,road numbers and the map, entering Windermere.Leaving was much easier following the M6 sign posts on the A592.This site falls in the "highly recommended" group.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

It is the type of site you can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet the lights out and silence after 11pm was a very good idea same as the coded locks on the toilet shower blocks means that people can`t just wander onto the site and use the facilities, and easy access, through gate at back, to the car ferry and across to the other side of the lake (well worth the 50p to go across on foot) also easy to get to the town and the lake cruises and the few shops Well worth a Visit..
