Well run site in the grounds of a youth hostel with views of distant Lake Winderemere.

YHA Windermere may be almost two miles from the vast titular lake but, climbing up a steady slope that leads away from the water's edge, it certainly rewards campers with some spectacular views of it. The camping meadow, a short stroll around the back of the large, whitewashed youth hostel building has a traditional drystone wall along one side. Once you arrive you can lean idly against it like a storybook farmer and gaze across the blanket of meadows leading down to the water. It’s like a living Lake District postcard.

The campsite itself offers good old-fashioned national park camping. Campervans and caravans are not permitted (tents only here folks) and there are no electric hook-ups. A facilities block houses toilets, showers and a small kitchen and washing up area, though, if you’re seeking a little more comfort, all campers also have 24-hour access to the facilities inside the main YHA hostel using a keycode for the main door. Along with Wi-Fi, a lounge and a more expansive kitchen area, the hostel also includes a great little café and restaurant that’s another top spot for enjoying the lake view.

The result is a refreshingly basic feeling campsite, with Lakeland views and a great location, but a handy building you can take refuge in if the weather turns bad. Add in a collection of four pre-pitched tipis for those who can’t be bothered to bring their own tent and the place has everything you need. Apart from campfires but, hey, if they didn't give us something to critique review-writers like us would be out of a job. So really that's a good thing too. Right?
