No-fuss affordable camping right in the grizedale forest. You wont find electrical hookups, wifi or play area... but you will find peace and quiet, free range animals and a friendly welcome. Perfect for walkers and mountain bikers.

I have just turned up as a solo camper with the dog and been found a space even when the campsite was saying full. Wouldn't hurt to phone ahead though.
