Baysbrown Farm Campsite
Located in the village of Chapel Stile, Baysbrown Farm Campsite lies at the entrance to the spectacular Great Langdale Valley in the heart of the Lake District.
Baysbrown Farm Campsite is a working Lakeland farm that has an area set aside for camping. There are wonderful views from the campsite.
The park is a perfect location for fell walking and climbing. Some of the routes include Bowfell, Crinkle Crags, The Langdale Pike’s and Scafell Pike.
You can enjoy great low level walks through woodlands, valley bottoms and lovely villages, such as Elterwater. The park is a great base for exploring the local villages of Ambleside, Grasmere and Hawkeshead.
Baysbrown Farm Campsite has basic facilities. There are four men’s showers with eight toilets and five women’s showers with nine toilets. They also have a washing-up room, drinking water and a chemical toilet disposal point. There is also a waste and recycling point. The site welcomes pets onto the site.
The park can take small campervans and motor homes but they have a narrow entrance with a hump bridge which makes taking any larger vehicle an impossibility.
There are no hard standings or electric hook-ups on the site. The park operates on a first come first served basis and they do not take bookings. They do not take groups of larger than 4 unless they are families with children that are under 16 years of age. They have a place where you can charge your mobile phones.
The Lake District offers a huge-range of activities, attractions & places to visit that suit all interests and age ranges, here are just a few:
