With fields and fells all around, this is a stunning place to camp, and rightly popular with walkers and cyclists on the hunt for some classic Lake District scenery.

The Lake District is arguably the most beautiful corner of England. With a combination of picture-perfect villages, sensational lakes and glorious green dales, this remarkable region is surely the perfect retreat for any camper. Described by romantic poet William Wordsworth as “The loveliest spot that man hath found” it’s hard to disagree, especially on a clear Cumbrian day.

Tucked away down a narrow country lane, Eskdale can be found in one of the Lake's more secluded pockets. Run by the ever-friendly Sara and Martyn, the eight acres of flat, well maintained grassland are backed by tall trees with a tranquil stream snaking past. 

Upon arrival, you instantly realise Eskdale's facilities have been created with hassle-free camping in mind. Pitch sizes are generous, facilities well-maintained, and the fully-stocked shop is a life saver when you forget your toothbrush!

If you wish to get reacquainted with Mother Nature, then Eskdale’s location couldn’t be better. The site is ideally placed for reaching the impressive Wasdale fells or climbing England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike. Also right on your doorstep is one of the most beautiful train journeys in England, the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway. This historic, narrow gauge railway carries passengers along seven miles of spectacular scenery on an unforgettable 40-minute ride.

Eskdale has a cosy, friendly atmosphere and is a genuinely lovely place to camp, in a region with no shortage of great pitchup spots.

Gorgeous family break

We had a great time at Eskdale staying in a pod The campsite was very well kept with great facilities. Everything was super clean and fresh smelling and the owners could not do enough for us. The local pubs were perfect and we will be going back to this site in the summer for a longer stay. Highly recommended!

“The loveliest spot that man hath found” – so said William Worsdworth of this idyllic corner of Cumbria. And we reckon old Bill knew a thing or two about the Lake District.
