A children’s paradise in the heart of the Lake District with scenery for the adults and a stunning waterside location for wild swimming (well... paddling).

This is a great site for kids. It ticks all their campsite boxes and probably a few more besides. Campfires are not only allowed, but positively encouraged in selected areas, with bags of logs complete with kindling and firelighters sold onsite each evening.

The first thing that meets you on arrival is the pond, fed by a stream and usually full of children paddling and playing on tyre rafts – it makes a perfect focal point for kids to get to know each other. The playground has everything your young outward-bounder desires in the way of zip wires, climbing frames, tyre rope-swings and adventure courses. And there’s an added extra: the site sits along the route of the Ravenglass and Eskdale steam railway line – an enchanting and atmospheric way to arrive if you’re coming by public transport. So if you’ve walked into the nearby hamlet of Boot and there are some tired little legs as a result, hop on board for a scenic choo-choo trip back to camp.

For the adults, the site is in the heart of the Eskdale valley, a quieter part of the Lake District, far from the busier eastern realms near the M6. It's also a spot that neatly combines access to England's underrated North West coast – a myriad of beaches, marshes and tidal inlets that's exemplified by Ravenglass at the other end of the railway line – and the very highest peaks in the national park. Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England, is within hiking distance for those who really want a challenge.

Back at camp, there's an evening quiet time and a pleasing, respectful sense of calm come bed time. rugged, bracken-clad fells, woods and grazing sheep provide a splendid backdrop to rest your eyes on when you do eventually find time to relax. Sometimes, putting the feet up can be as important as putting the hiking shoes on.
