ActivitiesIt's a 15 minute walk to Haverthwaite Railway Station (015395 31594) where you can hop on a steam train and chug your way to Lakeside (via Newby Bridge) and then, if you want, continue the journey by water on one of the Steamers of Windermere Lake Cruises (015394 43360). The cruises cover the entire lake (the longest in England) from top to bottom. Alternatively Windermere town is just 15 minutes in the car. The ancient village of Cartmel is famous for the 12th Century Cartmel Priory, and is well worth a visit. The village also houses a variety of interesting shops and traditional pubs around its main square and is home of the world famous 'Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding!' The campsite is also conveniently located 15 minutes from Grizedale Forest (03000 674495), with miles of good cycling, walking and hiking trails. Right outside the huts there is also a series of excellent trails, known as Haverthwaite heights. This allows you a quick ascent to the beautiful views of Morecambe Bay (01524 582808) or in the other direction, the charming Rusland Valley and Coniston old man.
Food & DrinkPlenty of good pubs within a few miles – though the kitchen in the huts means you may just want to stay in! After a day in the lakes you can enjoy a hearty meal at the The White Hart (01229 861229; 1 mile) in Bouth, which also offers beautiful woodland views. The pub's horseshoe-shaped bar boasts 6 well kept cask conditioned real ales and 3 changing guest beers from around the UK. Also in Bouth, Old Hall Farm (01229 861993) has a lovely tea room offer coffees, cakes, lunches and their famous cream tea. The fabulous Drunken Duck Inn (015394 36347), in Barngates at the north of Lake Winderemere (20 minutes by car), is worth the extra distance. It won the Best Pub Restaurant Award 2019 and not only has excellent food but also its own micro brewery producing some seriously good beers. The views from its front door really seal the deal. The nearest sizeable town (6 miles away) is charming Ulverston, with beautiful cobbled streets and a market twice a week. There is also supermarket and plenty of small independent eateries and shops.
The site is just off the A590. 15 minutes from Junction 36 of the M6. If you are using a SAT NAV use postcode LA12 8AB. The main bus route to Kendal and Barrow has a stop just 2 minute's walk down the road. It is a 15 minute walk to the steam railway (015395 31594), which takes you to Lakeside and then take Windermere Steamers onwards to Bowness and Ambleside.
