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.

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

By the lake marina at Bowness on Windermere the location of this site is excellent, a brisk 10 min walk takes you to the centre of Bowness where you can catch all the lake cruises and bus stop where you can go to Grassmere or Kendal. The site is small but compact, the hardstanding pitches are very spacious and well serviced. On arrival you visit the reception and a very helpful staff member escorts you to your pitch. Its a lovely peaceful quiet site although my arrival was in November. I certainly come back to this site and would recommend it to everyone.

The beauty of this site is further enhanced by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.We caused a problem by getting stuck in the mud and spoiling the grass.We were helped to get unstuck,the grass was repaired and no negative responses were given to us.We always received a friendly greeting and we saw how hard working the staff are.Especially Nigel who dug us out.

Wonderful site made special by the wardens. They never stop working, but always find time for a smile & a quick chat. Very welcoming & nothing is too much trouble. A pair of diamonds. Will be back (just hope it has stopped raining by then!)
