- Luxury bell tents with kitchen and private bathroom; close to walks
In a peaceful paddock setting in the southern hinterland of the Lake District, Candlewyck is a site that has just a handful of glamping tents. Each is beautifully decorated and well equipped, and each has a private loo and shower facility.
Located in seven acres of private land, each bell tent is individually designed to give you that 'home from home' vibe, with a firepit for barbecues, plus indoor and outdoor seating for catching up with family and friends. There are charging points for your devices, tea and coffee on hand, and even a wine cooler and – best of all – proper comfy double beds with top-quality bedding.
A full kitchen on site gives you exclusive use of a fridge, gas and electric cookers, hot and cold water and a toaster so every day gets kick-started in the right way.
This dog-friendly spot is a 10-minute walk into the pretty market town of Ulverston, where you can pick up essentials and try a couple of artisan beers in the local pubs.
Country walks abound for all levels of fitness, while families can walk the length of Bardsea beach (10 minutes’ drive) and splash about in the rockpools. Big-hitting Lake District attractions including Windermere and Bowness are comfortably within an hour’s drive from base camp.

Great site and facilities.
From the manager...
Many thanks for your comments and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Candlewyck.
Reference your comments regarding the showers and toilets I would like to reply to your points raised. The rechargeable showers that we purchased, which were researched extensively, were described as being voted the number one choice for camping / glamping along with the privacy tents where they are positioned. Also the chemical toilet and sink unit combination were also a quality best seller too. I fully understand that the showers are not what you probably have within your own bathroom at home, but this all adds to the great experience of glamping.
Lovely stay,will stay again next year

The individual shower and toilet privacy tents are working very well this year, but we are looking to have a more structured offering in place for next year.
This is just such a clean and excellent site with very friendly staff.
