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.

Easy to book over the phone with a friendly chat with the warden. Very welcoming.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

Easy to book over the phone with a friendly chat with the warden. Very welcoming. Clean site with excellent wash and toilet facilities. Very clean and tidy. The pitches for caravans or motorhomes are quite close together. Although we did not use an awning it would have been tight to keep onto the gravel pitch area. Warden let us move pitches when we could not get a decent TV signal. A 10 min walk to the town and its ferry terminal and bus stops.Very picturesque scenery around the whole area. Bowness is a nice town with some decent pubs and restaurants plus excellent buses to other towns (Bus Pass!!) I can recommend this site wholeheartedly

Positives and negatives! Positives are that it was a great location.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

Positives and negatives! Positives are that it was a great location. Really close to a lovely town, right on the lake, and really useful for getting the cheap 50p ferry crossing to the other side for more nice walks and views. It was a great site for dog walks. Nice clean site. Negatives were that the vans are very very close together, and you don’t have any ‘privacy’ whatsoever really. Quite tight with having to put my car in front of the van diagonally as told. The thing that was the worst, was the two wardens that greeted me (eventually) were rather unfriendly. I had had a long journey, at it was 15 minutes to 1, and they came out and said no you have to wait till 1. Thought this was a bit unkind seeing as I am disabled and as I say, I had travelled some distance.
