Field

General

  • Pop-up site next to the River Esk in the Upper Eskdale valley
  • Access to hill walking and wild swimming spots in the Lake District
  • Five minutes’ drive to West Lakes Adventure for organised activities

Park up at a hill farm home to purebred Herdwick sheep, set right alongside the clear-water pools of the River Esk, during a stay at Dalegarth Campsite in Cumbria.

This spacious park has lots of room for spreading out to soak up the Upper Eskdale valley views and a food tent serving up bacon butties and hot tea until late morning. During the rest of the day, handmade stone-baked pizzas and hand-fried fish ‘n’ chips are available to order.

This sort of sustenance is definitely needed after days strolling in the surrounds – Eskdale has some of the Lake District’s most spectacular scenery, so walking boots are very much required when meandering around the mighty waterfalls and hills.

The site’s owners also reckon some of the national park’s best wild swimming spots are close by, including the well-known Trough Bridge a few minutes’ walk away.

Jumping in the water from here not high-octane enough for the thrill-seeking types you’re travelling with? Take adrenaline-seekers to West Lakes Adventure up the valley (five minutes) for activities like kayaking, canyoning and climbing.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

If making a fire, the fuel, logs and coal have to be purchased on site.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

Minimum spacing of 6 metres between pitches.

Group bookings of 6 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Location by the river and walks. Showers were cool yet basic. My phone network was fine, which in the lakes is hit and miss. There is food on site which is great, we ate at the two local pubs which are very good, the Boot inn has a better atmosphere.

    Disliked: 

    Lack of services across the site. Taps washing areas. Road in, is fine on my motorcycle but i watched cars scraping exhausts, could be expensive.

    The friendly owners and the location

    Disliked: 

    Torrential downpour resulting in boggy mud on the field, the food tent closed just short of 4pm due to unforeseen circumstances so we had to travel to a shop for dinner.
    The wind was extremely strong, snapped our tent poles and our friends so we called it a day after one day, instead of staying the second night. This obviously wasn't the owners fault as weather is unpredictable but it was unbearable trying to get to the toilets in the thick mud and driving rain.
    I'm just a little disappointed we paid £60 for less than 24 hour trip.
