General

  • Simple pop-up campsite near the River Lune in the Howgill Fells
  • A 10-minute drive to Sedbergh; 25 minutes to Kendal
  • Next to the Dales Way walking trail within the Yorkshire Dales

Beck Foot Campsite is a pop-up Cumbria campsite tucked away within the Howgill Fells and yet handily accessible from the M6 (at junction 37 or 38).

This spot is just on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, with the Lake District not far off either. That means plenty of walks, bike rides and other outdoor antics to be had nearby – and heaps of gorgeous scenery to admire as you explore. Not that you have to go all that far from the site to experience splendid views… this is a place that’s next to the Dales Way walking trail and close to the River Lune for some pretty watery scenery.

Town time is close by too, when you want it – head south to Sedbergh with a drive of 10 minutes to explore England’s official Book Town, pick up snacks in its deli and ice cream parlour, source supplies at the independent shops or settle in for meals in pubs and restaurants. The famed farm shop of Tebay services is about a 15-minute drive north too for further local nibbles.

Pitches here are of a good size, with space for parking and setting up a barbecue. Portaloos are provided and there’s a cold water supply (but please note it’s not suitable for drinking). Dogs are welcome as long as you keep them in sight or on a lead at all times.

Please note that as this is a simple site there are no waste disposal facilities, so you’ll be asked to take rubbish away with you (ideally to the local recycling point in Sedbergh if possible).

    Rds very narrow no good for motorhomes . Still took wrong turning and couldnt get over very small bridge .

From the manager...

Sorry you took a wrong turning and ended up at that narrow bridge, I do put directions on pitch up to avoid that bridge and did tried to ring you before, and regards flat space there was plenty for motorhomes, I know the roads are single file traffic but still plenty of room to manage , we get lorry’s up here everyday which are bigger than motorhomes
