General

  • Peaceful family campsite in Beckside on the Cartmel Peninsula
  • Within a 15-minute drive of Lake Windermere and the coast
  • A mile from Cartmel's priory, food shops, restaurants and pubs

Where outdoor landscapes are concerned, many quite rightly wax lyrical about the scenic vistas of the Lake District. But what about the Cartmel Peninsula? The owners of Cartmel Campsite (and they're not alone) rave about this hidden gem of a landscape, which is a good deal quieter than the national park while being within 15 minutes' drive of the shores of Lake Windermere.

Dotted with attractive villages including Cartmel (a mile away from site) and Flookburgh (10 minutes' drive), this pretty part of the world is increasingly being seen as a destination in its own right. The northern side of Morecambe Bay is also well within reach if you drive 10 minutes to Grange-over-Sands for coastal walks or saltwater swims in the town lido.

Cartmel Campsite is located in a small hamlet called Beckside within striking distance of all of the above and a mere mile from Cartmel's pubs, food shops and priory. It’s also a 20-minute walk from L'Enclume restaurant, where sticky toffee pudding is believed to have been invented; orders for the sweet treat in the surrounding area are still going strong today.

This basic site is a green and spacious one where you can pick your own pitch on arrival. Fresh water is available, and there are portaloo toilets that are cleaned regularly. Barbecues are also allowed, while well-behaved dogs are welcome to come along too.
