Blaithwaite House: Campfield

General

  • Family-friendly site with stunning views across Solway Firth
  • A 10-minute drive from the Lake District and 20 from the coast
  • Shops and restaurants five miles away in Wigton

Rural rambles without having to leave base – bag a berth at Blaithwaite House, 10 minutes’ drive from the market town of Wigton, for a taste of life on a Cumbria country estate.

And not just any old country estate – this one stretches for a generous 200 acres, bringing with it 50 acres of woodland to frolic in, and a walking trail that covers over two miles (Yes, it’s a big place, so best be picking up a map before striding forth.) Enjoyed that warm up? More walks, bike rides and other outdoorsy pursuits are 10 minutes’ drive away in the Lake District National Park or 20 minutes away on the Solway coast.

Time to catch your breath? Settle in on site for splendid views over the Solway Firth or to cook up something tasty at the barbecue and firepit area (shop ahead and you can stash your supplies in the site’s fridges and freezer). If cooking doesn’t appeal, decamp to a local pub – two such establishments an easy five-minute drive away serve up homemade food.

Still got energy to burn? Play areas, a football field and a playing field offer plenty of space to let off steam. If you’ve got a gaggle of buddies on hand, book ahead to mercilessly hunt them down with a game of laser tag… but whatever you get up to, don’t forget to give a cheery wave to Snowy the goat and her chicken pals.

The site may be sizeable, but facilities aren’t far-flung – washing-up areas and individual toilets and showers are in the pitches field and supplied with hot water from the eco-friendly biomass boilers.

Please note

    Excellent site and close to the lakes with great shower/toilet cubicles. Lots of activities for kids (crazy golf, two play parks, animals, walks etc). The owners seem relaxed (no long list of rules like some sites)

    Will almost certainly be returning!

    Disliked: 

    Being picky the shower wasn't hot enough for my liking.

  • Liked: 

    Braithwaite house was very easy to find with sat nav, very close to wigton for local shops, which were handy! Arrived and parked up on the carpark, went into main office and was greeted by a lovely lady who help me upgrade to a electric hook up pitch as we had the kids and tablet with us, so should have really booked that to begin with but didn't think at the time! Luckily the lady gave us a cable to use to hook up to the electric! She then took me for a tour of the campsite, showing where the bar, shop, pitches, playground, crazy golf, showers, and toilets were.
    Crazy golf is free, you just use the golf clubs and return them once finished. There were a couple of goats, chickens, sheep and horses, which was nice. Would be good if there was food available so the children could feed the animals.
    Ladies toilets very clean. It was lovely to have a shower while camping! So I approve of the facilities!! Hot water and sinks available to wash pots, which was fab!

    Disliked: 

    Crazy golf and play areas are old and tired both could do with an upgrade!
    Mens toilets not very nice.
    Not many items available in shop/bar.
    Bar would be better if there was entertainment.
    Would stay here again, but wouldn't bring the kids unless the play areas were improved.
