Great Langdale National Trust Campsite

The National Trust Campsite at Great Langdale is a campsite I have stayed at several times over the last twenty years and it has changed very little during that time. I still love it! Its location is fabulous as it's in the sheltered Great Langdale valley surrounded by the impressive Langdale Fells. A relaxed yet well-organised campsite, it caters for everyone from keen walkers to couples to families with young children. The Langdale valley is a great place for a variety of high or low level walks, or it makes a great base for visiting nearby Elterwater, Grasmere or even Coniston. T

The Great Langdale campsite has good, well-maintained facilities including a couple of shower and toilet blocks, washing up areas, and a small shop selling maps, walking information and basic food supplies. The Old Dungeon Gyhll Pub is 5-10 minutes' walk from the campsite (take a torch) or there are a number of good pubs a short drive away such as my favourite, the Britannia in Elterwater.

Although a popular campsite, campers are not packed too closely together and even in August we had a lovely corner pitch with plenty of space between us and the neighbouring tent. Cars can be parked near pitches but not adjacent to them which works well as it means cars are kept off the camping fields. A stay at this National Trust Campsite at Langdale is highly recommended both for experienced campers or for occasional campers.
