- Lakeside location, watersports on site
Hidden Forest is a private family-run campsite just half a mile from Brampton and 20 minutes from Carlisle in Cumbria. The owners are proud of their secluded location, but not isolation: Hidden Forest feels far from the crowd, but there is plenty of civilisation nearby.
This is a small site with the benefits of the peaceful country park on your doorstep. The site is effectively a basecamp for exploring the park or Hadrian's Wall country.
The site operates a no noise policy after 10.30pm and is suitable for early birds. Customers can, in fact, enjoy the mist riding over the stunning Tarn and nature.
For heat with no hassle, there is an on-site firepit and logs are available in reception at a small fee.
There is also modern shower and toilet block and a washing-up area.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
