I absolutely love the Lake District and have spent many a happy childhood holiday there. I wanted to take Pickle, as well as my other children, and in the summer holidays we finally went…
We were invited to stay at the Windermere Camping and Caravanning Clubsite and chose a gorgeous glamping pod which sleeps 4, comes with electric sockets, a wall heater, and wall lights. We had to take everything else – beds, bedding, cooking stuff, everything. We needed everything we would normally need for camping except for the actual tent.
Our parking space was just outside the pod which was great for unpacking – and dodging the many showers! The Lake District is renowned for its rain – I actually think it rains more there than at home in Pembrokeshire! Not that it detracts from the sheer beauty of the place though. And we did have a couple of gorgeous sunny days – as you can see…
My parents joined us at this site in their touring caravan and chose a hard standing caravan pitch. There are good facilities for caravanners and campers – lovely clean toilet blocks with several showers and plentiful hot water. There are also the usual washing up facilities, chemical loo disposal points, freshwater taps, and laundry room. Camping and caravanning sites always have great facilities and are in such good locations. This site was no exception being in an excellent position between Kendal and Windermere.
The site also had a well stopped small shop and a pub on site but this was quite dated.
The pod we stayed in would have cost £50 a night (in peak season) for four people. We loved Glamping in the Lake District and staying at this site and would definitely stay again. We highly recommend it as a great base for exploring the area – we visited Bowness, Ambleside, Grasmere, Hawkshead via the tiny car ferry across Lake Windermere, Kendal and the Brockhole Centre.
