  • Pop-up wild camping on a peaceful family farm near Ulverston
  • A 10-minute drive to Coniston Water; 15 minutes to Windermere
  • Kid- and dog-friendly site with essential facilities provided
Lowick Bridge Campsite has one heck of a location, what with the spectacular mountain and fell views, and it being so close to Coniston Water and Windermere… It’s a fab base for outdoorsy types keen to get up mountains or out on the water in as short a time as possible. This back-to-basics site is also a great stopover for long-distance hikers, as the Cumbria Way starts just 15 minutes’ drive away in Ulverston. You can get out onto footpaths and cycling tracks right from the pitches. Although, if you’re after a lazy day doing nothing much except admiring those views, there’s plenty of space around the secluded pitches for dogs (please keep them on a lead) and kids to roam safely, and with a fence and hedge circling the campsite, you don't have to too be worried about the kids straying too far. There’s lot to do en famille off-site too, with a zoo, steam railway and watersports all less than half an hour away. You should most of what you need for everyday within less than a 10-minute drive from here. A traditional local pub – all exposed beams and roaring log fires – is within a five-minute stroll, and serves comforting pub grub and well as cask ales. Another pub sits 20 minutes' walk away down the road, and is popular for its food and drink, outdoor pizza oven and live bands – try to book in advance. In riverside Greenodd (10 minutes' drive), you can source barbecue bits from the butcher, treat the family to fish and chips or pick up fresh loaves and takeout pizza from the bakery. There's also a pub 20 minutes' walk from the site, which runs a community art project with workshop events here and there and drop-in pottery. It has a woodfired pizza and music night on Thursdays.

Non-electric grass tent pitch

Liked: Tim the owner was lovely. Went out of his way to repeatedly come by the site and check everything was okay. He provided toys for children in a bucket and we enjoyed a few chats with him. Constantly cleaned the toilets and made sure they were stocked with products. I even had a short chat over text before arriving with him making sure that we knew where to go and he met us shortly after arrival. There was a minor issue that we personally didn't even notice, a group of people were making noise past the curfew and this was dealt with by Tim quickly. They were immediately asked to leave the site after being disrespectful. I don't think there's anything more you could ask for from a site owner, people are people but we were really happy with the experience. The site is a field with a sink and clean water and some portaloos. Camping with a 4 year old was easy and we're looking forward to doing it again. There are 3 pubs within walking distance and we found the Farmer Arms to be a really nice place with food and drinks and a good atmosphere. It's a short drive to Coniston water and even though it was Bank Holiday we found free parking in a bay by the shores on a few occasions. Great experience and the first time camping with my young daughter. If you're looking for a campsite with simple facilities to explore the area then I'd absolutely recommend the site.

Non-electric grass tent pitch

Liked: Campsite was great plenty of space with the site having 2 fields, toilets on site and washing up facilities. Site also had a games bucket which was a nice addition, Tim the runner of the site couldn’t of been more help full cam round at least twice a day to make sure very thing was okay and offering fire wood, location was perfect with a pub within walking distance and Coniston water only a 10-15 minute drive. We could recommend this campsite enough, especially for single sex groups.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike at all. If you wanted to be ridiculously picky the one thing was that the grass wasn’t cut but let’s be honest that doesn’t matter.

Excellent site, would recommend and would stay again.
