Definitely Glamping the way to go for me...just spent 2 nights at Waterside House in a Tipi with absolutely magnificent lakeside views across Ullswater...an excellent campsite. Really good facilities including lovely showers, toilets, covered washing up area, shop, laundry and even a proper coffee machine (bonus). Tipi was spacious and well kitted out (futon a good idea but ours was uncomfortable as it sloped down on one side) Fire pit was provided and was a lovely touch as we all sat round watching a glorious sunset across the lake...brandy definitely tastes better with the warm glow of a camp fire!
