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.

This is a good site but could so very easily be a great site.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

This is a good site but could so very easily be a great site. Spent a little over a week here in our caravan. The site is enviously located only a 5 minute walk or so to the banks of Lake Windermere and thereafter an easy walk into the town's of Bowness and Windermere. The site is well equipped with toilets, showers etc. but is very definitely in need of some TLC and an update across all areas. Because of its location the site is, as you might imagine, always very busy with few if any 'spare' pitches available (certainly this was the case during our visit). This is great news for the CCC however, there are far too many pitches slotted in to the available space resulting in a constant feeling of being overcrowded, not at all helped by the fact that the pitches are just too small with little space between those staying there, vehicles having to park immediately adjacent or part on the road - this made worse still during our stay by a number of camping tents being erected in undesignated 'tent' areas with some only a couple of metres away from the caravan. In my view the site and customer experience would benefit greatly by reducing the number of pitches by at least 20 thus allowing those remaining to be extended to a more practicable size. Despite the criticism (which I hope will be viewed as constructive) we shall be returning to Braithwaite Fold later in the year.

Nice site close to lake and ferry trips in Bowness. we found the pitches far too small.

This review is for Braithwaite Fold

Nice site close to lake and ferry trips in Bowness. we found the pitches far too small. We were going to errect our awning but decided against. Cars had to be parked in front of the caravan and this restricted the room on the access road around the site. Having said that, a nice site in the quieter season.
