Patterdale is situated in an unbeatable location, on the bend of a river with a glorious view of Hartsop Dodd and Place Fell. Its location makes it an idea base for exploring both Helvellyn and High Street while it is only 20 minutes walk away from Ullswater Steamers.
In summer a bus stops right outside the door and year round there is a bus from Penrith to Patterdale. A perfect staging point for trips to Windermere, Ambleside and Keswick, all of which are around 20 minutes drive away.

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.
