Holy moly. We were sold with the Lake District location of welcoming Church Stile Farm Holiday Park, in the midst of superbly scenic valley Wasdale with close-by climbing and kayaking opps up the Lake District’s highest peak Scafell Pike and on its deepest lake Wastwater. But a hard day clambering and kayaking is always best followed by a fine ale and supper at a local watering hole, so we are sold all the more with Church Stile’s locale only two minutes’ walk from the two pubs and hotel of local hamlet Nether Wasdale. Praise be.
Wasdale’s claim as ‘the birthplace of British climbing’ isn’t a lofty one, as first-timers will see from the screes and summits all around: ascension fans flock here from all over the world to tackle peaks like Scafell, the Great Gable, Yewbarrow and Kirk Fell. But if your preferred surface is on water rather than several hundred metres up a chunk of rock, Wastwater, once voted Britain’s favourite view, is only a mile from the farm to tackle canoeing, kayaking and rowing (motorboats, sailing boats and other noisy/large vessels aren’t allowed, so you can float along the water or picnic by its banks in blessed Lake District peace).
All is praiseworthy on site too: Church Stile Farm Holiday Park covers about seven acres of a spacious oak woodland and wildlife-laden setting, with venerable views of the Wasdale valley and the Screes mountains range. Facilities are kept to high standards and include free hot showers in separate ladies’ and gents’ washrooms, free hairdryers (for both ladies and gents, hurrah), and a disabled/family room with baby changing unit. The laundry room has hot and cold drink vending machines, a free freezer for ice blocks, and a coin-operated washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board.
To keep the kids happy when they’re not sorting out the laundry, there’s a well-equipped play area with swings and climbing frames, a grassed area for ball games, and a woodland area adjacent to the site for wildlife spotting and walks. Picnic tables are dotted around the park and barbecues/firepits are available to hire (pick up essentials for the barbie in the shop and some wood from the Church Stile team).

It's now possible to make group bookings on Pitchup.com for up to 30 adults and 30 children.
As long as the 'one unit per pitch' rule is not highlighted on the pitch type information (please check this before completing your booking), you will be able to pitch your tents together on one booking.
If you are not satisfied with the results generated, try breaking your booking down for more options. For example, if you're a group of 10, enter five people for your initial search and book two pitches. Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches or accommodation units: the campsite or park will try to grant your request. Click the 'Make another booking like this' button on the confirmation page to take you back to your chosen campsite/park listing page so you can make your next booking straight away. Please note the same dates and party size will be used, so you'll need to change this if the number of people or child ages are different.
Before booking, please check the listing page for any group restrictions. These normally appear in a section titled 'Please note'. Please also check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit - especially for a large party - is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
