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.

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

Due to site restrictions only one car per pitch is allowed at any time and no boats are allowed on trailers. Drive-away awnings cannot be accommodated on most pitches – please contact site. All service pitches are hardstanding and rock pegs required. Poor TV reception.

Eat Local

A Farmers' Market is held in Kendal on the last Friday of the month.

What a brilliant site.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

What a brilliant site. Well sited with close proximity to a lot of facilities you can exit site from both ends by foot either way you can access restaurants, pubs, lakeside facilities. To the north side which is the entry to the site approx 10 to 20 minute walk takes you to lakeside facility, shops, restaurants and a Cinema. Ok the site is not that large but is well maintained. Wardens were friendly and polite.

This is the best site we have ever stayed at.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

This is the best site we have ever stayed at. The wardens were brilliant and really nice and friendly. We erected a fence for our dogs and there was no issues with us putting it up. Everyone was really nice and it is a short walk to into the town or a short walk to the marina. Really clean and well care for site.

This is a lovely little site in a great location near to the lake.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

This is a lovely little site in a great location near to the lake. Short walking distance to the lake with plenty.of choice.for shops but also a land train for those who.prefer a lift. Lots of choice for lake activities. The town does have very steep hills if you venture away from the lake. The site itself is well maintained with adequate facilities. Suitable for young and old.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

?43.50 a night !! Thats with our suppposed discount! Pitches were very small packed in like sardines, our friends who were already there got told to take there windbreak down by a female warden because your not allowed permanent fixtures? Then when not taken down 10mins later as she was still cooking breakfast at this point, she came over and ignorantly said 'you've already been told once take them down now!, we had to hang the van over the edge of the pitch because our car wouldn't fit in front of the caravan and there was nowhere else to put it,no view at all! had a shower and while it was clean and tidy, there were worms coming out of the tiles, I told this to my husband who also went for a shower and he said the same, worms all over the floor! Weird! We would not stay here again. Very over priced for somewhere you feel like you can't breath it was that over cramped.
