Nestled in Eskdale, West Cumbria our camp site is set on the grounds of the ancestral home of the Stanley family who have a wonderful herd of Herdwick sheep, a native breed to the Lake District.

This picturesque part of the western Lake District offers amazing walks and cycle routes. From the epic Scafell and Hard know pass to some wonderful ambles through the fields and along the river.

Our campsite also has direct access to some crystal clear waters perfect for the kids to take the heat out of a summers day. (Be sure to keep your eye on them as we don’t have any lifeguards).

Dalegarth Campsite Surroundings


For the keen walkers among you there is of course the Lakeland giants of Scafell and Scafell Pike nearby as well as their not so small neighbouring hills.

If your not into the big hills there are plenty of walks through the fields and by the river to enjoy too.


Cyclists are spoilt for choice nearby with a great choice of off-road trails and for the road cyclists the iconic mountain pass (Hardknott) is not too far away.


It is not just the scenery that is great here either. Just a short walk from Dalegarth Campsite is the village of Boot where you can find a great place to eat, the local shop, and even the Dalegarth Station (terminus for the Ravenglass and Eskdale Steam Railway) where a trip on the narrow gauge heritage line is a must for railway children of all ages.

Down the coast a you will find the Railway Museum, a Roman Bathhouse and even a great day out at Muncaster Castle, with its colourful history, fabulous grounds and even some birds of prey.

Why not visit Eskdale Mill! Absorb yourself in our natural surroundings and step back in time at the delightful mill.
