General

  • Quiet pop-up site 20 minutes’ drive to Scafell Pike and Seascale beach
  • A five-minute drive to Wastwater; 10 minutes from Gosforth shops
  • Sunset views, fab walking and climbing, with real ale pubs close by

Wasdale Valley View site is a rustic bolthole in Cumbria's remote Wasdale. This quiet and peaceful site is run by a mother-and-daughter team, and its simple facilities (portaloos and running water sourced from a tank) are offset by spectacular sunsets and amazing views towards Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain.

And it’s not only close to England’s highest peak, but also its deepest lake. With Wastwater five minutes’ drive away, and several quiet beaches (many dog-friendly so the pet pooch can come too) to discover in less than 20 minutes, this is a fabulous spot for wild camping mini-breaks. To preserve the peaceful ambience, the site does not accept groups and strictly enforces its 10pm to 7am quiet time rule.

Located on the outskirts of Nether Wasdale village, there are traditional real-ale pubs within a few minutes' walk, plus a brewery and cosy tea rooms round about, but if you’d like to eat on site (barbecues are allowed but you'll need to bring your own) it’s best to pick up supplies in Seascale, Gosforth or Holmrook stores on your way.

As well as walking and climbing in Wasdale, brave souls have access to supervised ghyll scrambling and rock climbing at one of the local adventure activity providers; on family trips out, there are kids’ playparks in Seascale and St Bees.

    Good location

    Disliked: 

    When we arrived we felt like school children. We were given a list of rules too abide by straight away. The site owner was constantly wondering around and we felt on edge. We were told alot of people were coming over the weekend, but with the rules between us couldn't figure out how or where all these people would be camping, bearing in mind we were told we all had to be 4m apart.
    The portatoilets out of 5 toilets only 3 were open, 2 closed ones being ziptied shut. Until our final day when the other 2 were opened. The 3 open were disgusting, I work with builders for a living so am well aware, they do smell, they aren't great. But these were at some points something else completely.

    I visited with a friend and her two children and we loved the site, with lovely local views, a very friendly and helpful owner, & the peace and quiet. It has great proximity to Scafell Pike, Wastwater, walks, streams, teashops and nature. Angela was a fount of local information and was really approachable and friendly. The children were delighted to play with other children on the site, facilitated by Angela's daughter. Cars are parked away from tents so it felt safe and there was space to hang things to dry out if necessary. The porta-loos were about as good as porta-loos can get - cleaned and restocked regularly through the day, as well as additional hand wash stations just outside.
