  • Peaceful Lake District park near Scafell Peak and Wastwater
  • Pub, licensed riverside café and farm shop within five minutes' walk
  • Well-equipped play area, picnic tables and woodland area
Holy moly. You'll likely already be sold with the Lake District location of welcoming Church Stile Farm Holiday Park, in the midst of superbly scenic Wasdale with close-by climbing and kayaking on Scafell Pike and Wastwater. But a hard day clambering and kayaking is always best followed by a fine ale and supper at a local watering hole, so you'll likely be sold all the more with Church Stile’s setting only two minutes’ walk from the pub in local hamlet Nether Wasdale, and a licensed riverside café too. Praise be. All is praiseworthy on site too: Church Stile Farm Holiday Park covers about seven acres of a spacious oak woodland and wildlife-laden setting, with venerable views of the Wasdale valley and the Screes mountain range. Facilities are kept to high standards and include free hot showers in separate ladies’ and gents’ washrooms, free hairdryers (for both ladies and gents, hurrah), and a disabled/family room with baby changing unit. The laundry room has a free freezer for ice blocks, a token-operated washing machine and a dryer. To keep the kids happy when they’re not sorting out the laundry, there’s a well-equipped play area with swings and climbing frames, a grass area for ball games, and a woodland area adjacent to the site for wildlife spotting and walks. Picnic tables are dotted around the park and barbecues/firepits are available to hire (pick up essentials for the barbie in the shop and some wood from the Church Stile team, or venture to the farm shop a few minutes' walk away).

Liked: The views here were spectacular! Staff were really friendly and helpful, and the pizza option over the weekend was fab. The shop on site is very handy and the facilities were kept nice and clean too, despite the rainy weekend making it muddy on site.

Unpowered concrete slab motorhome site

Liked: Fantastic site. Right in wasdale. The site is clean. Spacious. And ran by friendly people.. the staff are friendly and have a great sense of humour.. the showers are spacious. And as hot water.. there a pub at the bottom of the site which is nice to go and relax in.. the site shop as basic stuff in.. and quite reasonably priced.. your 5 miles from wasdale lake. It’s the start of a walk up scarfell.. definitely will be staying again as a solo walker.. the Wi-Fi signal didn’t bother me as I’m on holiday.. it’s the last thing I’m interested in

Local attractions

Whether you’re climbing, canoeing or just ambling gently around with picnic in backpack, the Wasdale valley is a pretty pleasant place for a Lake District break. The valley is over 10 miles long if you fancy a full day’s historic hike, starting from the village of Wasdale Head, the start of the Three Peaks Challenge and the former home of Cumbrian pub landlord Will Ritson, whose tall tales led to the still-going-strong Biggest Liar Competition. One of the tiniest churches in the land, St Olaf’s, is at Wasdale in its ‘Viking fields’: Wasdale was originally settled by Norse farmers and the beams in the church are rumoured to be from Viking longships. Climbers can get to Scafell Pike and Great Gable from Wasdale Head, but walkers can continue along the valley length down to the village of Gosforth, which has the biggest Viking Cross in England at the Grade I-listed St Mary’s Church. Finally, fancy the beach? The Cumbrian coast at Seascale is seven miles from Church Stile Farm (walkable, you might reckon), with miles of sandy beach leading to the Lake District’s only coastal village, the fishing village of Ravenglass.
