Windermere  – Lakeside

A spectacularly located site set site within the grounds of the YMCA Lakeside campsite on the quieter, western shores of Windermere, England’s largest lake. With stunning views across almost the entire length of the lake towards Ambleside and the fells beyond our Lakeside site has it all in spades. Each of our yurts here have stunning lake views and are a hop, skip and a splash away from a restorative early morning dip or make an ideal launch spot for a sunset paddle board adventure.

In between are an array of hidden gems, secret spots and wild places to explore. The site also boasts close proximity to two of the county’s arguably most famous ‘lakes’ (Lake Windermere and Coniston Water), ideal for spot of wild swimming, beautiful picnic spots, photography or just an opportunity to sit and enjoy being in nature.
