This is a new site for us and we are delighted to be heading to this Iconic valley in the summer. Wast Water is England's deepest lake, and at its head are some of England's biggest mountains - Scafell Pike and Great Gable among them.
This is a trip for those wanting to get onto the high fells - there are so many to chose from - and we will be making the most of our location with some big walks on offer.
This lovely campsite has good facilities and we have our own field. There is a strict 'no noise' policy but the village has two pubs so we will be able to socialise off the site.
VERY IMPORTANT: This booking is for small tents only, which is one that is 3m or less in both directions. If your tent is larger than that, an additional £8 for the weekend is payable on arrival for tents up to 5m in any direction, or £16 for the weekend if your tent is up to 8m. Tents over 8m are not allowed. By booking you agree to pay any additional surcharge once on site, in cash please.
Photos: All photos taken by the event leader and used with permission.
Dogs: Allowed at this campsite, for an additonal fee of £3 per dog for the weekend, to be paid to the site directly upon arrival. Usual rules apply.
Caravans, Motorhomes, Campervans: VW-style camper vans are allowed, but the field we are using is not suitable for larger motorhomes or caravans. A £16 supplement is payable on arrival for a VW-style camper van.
