Blaithwaite House: Pitches with countryside views

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.

    The camp site was lovely and quiet at the night but had a lovely atmosphere throughout the day. The staff were polite and helpful and gave us a tour of the camp site upon arrival and allowed us to choose our pitch. The toilet/shower cubicles were clean and exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be back with family and friends.

    Amiable welcome and guided tour of facilities. Facilities, including toilets/showers, were in good condition and kept clean throughout the day. In addition, the location was an easy reach to the Lake District and Hadrian's Wall, which was a bonus. Blaithwhaite House is very family-friendly that provides entertaining play areas for children and adults.

  • Liked: 

    Lovely field with magnificent tree in the middle. Frequent cleaning of toilets and showers. Gardens beautiful.

    Disliked: 

    No disabled facilities. Made it known when booking we had a disabled member. As requested we were allocated a pitch near toilets but were not suitable for those with mobility issues. Every campsite we have been on has a disabled shower/toilet facility and assumed this lovely site would be no different. Raised step up to access and toilet low which is great if you are small or child. No grab rail to help raise yourself only the radiator to pul yourself up. Really too few loos and showers for so many. Just 6 unisex in total for such a large number. Campers are quiet after 11 as required but noise from events at the house can be awful. Seems extremely loud music is permitted till 11.30. Apparently this information is freely available but I haven’t found it.
