General

  • Peaceful rural Cumbria site between Yorkshire Dales and Lake District
  • A 15-minute drive to Kendal and 25 minutes to the coast
  • Simple pitches with basic facilities; 10 minutes' drive from the M6

Wild camping in style but with a few basic amenities thrown in to make life a bit more comfy? Gorgeous rural views but with easy access from the motorway? Many wishlist boxes are likely to be ticked by the mix on offer at Cumbria’s Warth Hill.

A mere 10 minutes’ drive from junction 36 of the M6 is this peaceful spot with stunning views out over the green landscapes of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, with glimpses of Morecambe Bay beyond. That handy location between two national parks also means lots of scope to get out for walks, bike rides and other outdoors activities – and with coastal days a distinct possibility too.

The wild camping vibe comes partly from those lovely views, and partly from the fact that it’s a laidback place where you can pick your own pitch (with plenty of space to choose from), bring dogs along and set up off-ground barbecues or firepits. Toilets and showers are available to guests, however, so you don’t have to live entirely wild here.

Top barbecue idea? Take the two-mile walk to the local farm shop to load up on local produce for your grill (and stop in the café for refreshment while you’re there). For other supplies or to treat yourselves to meals out, it’s a 10-minute drive to Kirkby Lonsdale or 15 minutes to Kendal (or look out for several good pubs and restaurants dotted around the local countryside).

The site was perfect!04/09/2022

    We both loved the amazing 360 views for as far as the eye could see it was incredible and luckily we had a clear sky, no light pollution so we had the pleasure of sitting watching for shooting stars. The other people on the site kept a nice distance as to not interfere with eachother and were also very respectful and friendly. We have decided this is our new favourite camping spot! We also loved how hassle free the whole stay was the way you can just turn up find a place that suits you rather than being given a spot you may not be happy with. 10/10

    Warth hill is so secluded - we’d like to come every month as the campsite is just what we are looking for. We always pitch at the same spot as it is overlooking the hills and we can’t fault it at all. Excited for our stay next month!

    Disliked: 

    The only thing about Warth Hill that perhaps makes it a little rough is the grass length! Each time we’ve been, it has been raining pretty badly - and the grass length soaks all of my clothes.
