- Dog-friendly Lake District site on the shore of Lake Windermere
- Under a five-minute drive from activity centres and a ferry stop
- Fishing on site; campfires and barbecues permitted
From paddleboarding, kayaking or hiring a boat for Lake Windermere’s light waves to tucking into some tasty food from a café in one of the lakeside villages around the National Park… when you set up camp on the banks of Lake Windermere at Social District, there is much to do on the lake and its shores, as this site is under five minutes’ drive away from two activity centres running pursuits such as watersports, laser tag and abseiling.
A 15-minute walk away from the nearest Windermere ferry stop, it’s even simpler to stop off at the attractions around the lake, such as a jetty museum, castle and Windermere village’s characterful parks, shops and restaurants.
As the site backs onto the lake, fishing can be done from the site. It's also directly opposite an old bobbin mill, now an English heritage museum, and 10 minutes’ drive away from the National Trust site at the Hill Top for a trip into the life of Beatrix Potter.
Don’t worry about leaving the dog behind, as furry members of the family welcome on site too. There are basic facilities around the site including a portaloo, as it's all about getting back to nature.
Gather up some tasty local produce from a farm shop five minutes’ drive away and don’t forget to grab some meat for the grill, as both barbecues and campfires are permitted back on site. And when you feel like a drink or a meal out, there are several places to eat within 10 minutes’ drive of the site too.

Grapple with the Go Ape course in Grizedale Forest (15 minutes’ drive) or stick to the walking, cycling or mountain biking the tracks down below. There are sculptures all around and the chance to walk with fell ponies through the forest too.
As you can expect, there are no shortages of activity centres nearby. Woodland Xperiences (two minutes) run outdoor adventures such as canoeing, rewilding and climbing while the YMCA South Camp (three minutes) has ziplining, kayaking and abseiling
Feel rather like you’ve jumped into the page of one of Beatrix Potter's books at The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction (20 minutes). Wray Castle (25 minutes), a National Trust site, will bring you back down to the ground with impressive turrets and towers looking out over the lake. Another National Trust site, Fell Foot Park (five minutes) has a relaxed circular walk around gothic boathouses, pine trees and gardens.
Head south towards Ulverston (15 minutes), where there’s the canal and South Lakes Safari Zoo (25 minutes). And to the east of the site, Kendal (half an hour) is another splendid Lake District village, nearby the grand Sizergh Castle (20 minutes).
