Dalegarth Campsite is situated in the stunning Eskdale valley, West Cumbria, alongside the crystal clear waters of the River Esk and lies in ancient meadow field’s surrounded by mature trees with magnificent views.   The land where the campsite is situated, is the ancestral home of  the Stanley family, a family run “Herdwick” sheep farm and we are grateful to Philip and Lottie Stanley for their support in our venture.

Dalegarth Campsite is a family business run by us, Kate and Jonny, and we welcome you and your family to probably one of the best situated campsites in the area – a real hidden gem. Last year was our first year in business as a pop-up and the reviews and bookings we had speak for themselves! 

We want your stay with us to be as special as possible. We look forward to welcoming you to Dalegarth Campsite……. AND DON’T FORGET YOUR WELLIES!
