Grizedale is sandwiched between Coniston Water and Lake Windermere, so it’s also a centrally located place for pootling around the national park. It’s a stellar spot for a serene stay too as it tends to be quieter than many of the more well-known villages in the surrounds.

Lake District highlights when camping in Grizedale

Kick off explores in Grizedale Forest, wandering beneath the trees in search of the artsy sculptures placed around the area when camping in the Lake District. There are 10 trails to choose from, so endless days are to be spent ambling about.

You could also flit around the forest on the cycle paths or while horse riding before seeing the scenery from an alternative angle by swinging through the trees on the local Go Ape adventure courses.

Of course, you’ll also want to get up to some aquatic antics while in Lakeland. Coniston (20 minutes’ drive) and Esthwaite (10 minutes) are your closest waters for wanders, but Windermere’s also effortless to reach from your Grizedale campsite (just over 20 minutes).

Linger around the latter – the largest lake in the national park – while sailing on the old-school steamer boats or during a tricky trek up to the Orrest Head for mesmerising views over the water and local fells.

Other spots to seek out when camping near Grizedale include the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, with its entertaining displays about the kids’ writer, and Holehird Gardens for eyeing up the alpine trees, purple heathers and manicured shrubs.
