Baysbrown Farm CampsiteBaysbrown Farm Campsite is located about 7 miles from Ambleside in the village of Chapel Stile at the entrance to the stunning Great Langdale Valley at the heart of the Lake District. We are a working Lakeland farm with an area set aside for camping. We don't have set pitches, just space. You pitch where you like and can park next to your tent, though this is sometimes not possible in adverse weather conditions.
The view from the campsite is spectacular and is a superb location for fell walking and climbing. Routes include Bowfell, Crinkle Crags, The Langdale Pikes and even Scafell Pike. There are great low level walks through woodlands, valley bottoms and picturesque villages including Elterwater. It is also a great base for exploring the larger villages nearby including Ambleside, Grasmere and Hawkeshead.
Our basic facilities include solar powered showers, toilets, a washing up room and drinking water. We also have a waste/recycling point. Small campervans and motorhomes are welcome but a narrow entrance with a hump bridge makes anything larger impossible. There is no hard standing or electric hook-up.
Camping charges per night are £6.00 per adult, £3.50 per child (15 years old & under) and £3.00 per vehicle. (minimum 2 nights stay over Bank Holiday Weekends)
