Back-to-nature campsite on a working sheep farm on the edges of Grizedale Forest

What a great find this is – a back-to-nature campsite on a working sheep farm on the edges of Grizedale Forest. A large grassy field site takes care of families, big tents and trailers, while up in the sustainably managed woodland site couples can pitch tents among the trees; there are also half a dozen cosy camping pods and two yurts up here, visited on occasion by the farmer's pet goats. There’s a good new shower block and camp wash-room, and the nearest pub, the Eagle’s Head, is just half a mile away.


Camping pods £30 per night (sleeps 3 adults or family of 4); yurts £70 per night (sleeps up to 8); tents £7 per adult.

Getting There

From junction 36 off the M6 follow the A590 towards Barrow-in-Furness for 15 miles. Soon after passing the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway you turn right into a lane to Rusland and Satterthwaite, then follow signs for Grizedale Forest. The site is on the right (7 miles from the A590). The nearest bus stop is on the A590, 7 miles from site, so you’re better off using local taxis for getting around locally – or even the bikes. If you want or need to get here on public transport the nicest way, by far, is to get the train to Windermere, bus (or walk) to Bowness, steamer to Lakeside, then either walk, bike, or get a taxi from there. An expeditionary holiday.
