Ideal rural base for exploring the enchanting Lake District

Seatoller Farm has space for about 70 tents and is perfect for backpackers or walkers who just need a simple pitch. Surrounded by traditional Lakeland dry stone walls and the River Derwent, this campsite has stunning views of the surrounding fells of Borrowdale including England's highest mountain Scafell Pike.

Facilities are basic with two cubicles in each of the mens and womens, and a couple of sinks for washing up. There is no hot water or lights, so you will need to use a torch at night. There is a shower block at the farmhouse which is a short walk from the campsite. Showers are available between 8am and 8pm and have plenty of hot water.
Harry's Cafe Bar up the road is a good place to refuel after an early morning hike. Along with a tasty lunch they have cosy seating by the fire with newspapers, magazines and free wifi. The nearby town of Keswick offers a range of options for dining out and evening entertainment.

Open from 22nd Mar to 31st Oct
