It's now possible to book online for the National Trust's beautiful Lake District campsites at Great Langdale, Wasdale and Low Wray.

Until now you could only ring or email to book a pitch; but a new online facility allows you to book a small-motorhome spot up to 24 hours before your arrival, for a minimum of two nights. Some pitches will still be available on a first-come, first-served basis, so there may still be space if you don't get around to booking.

It's now possible to book online for the National Trust's beautiful Lake District campsites at Great Langdale, Wasdale and Low Wray.

 

Until now you could only ring or email to book a pitch; but a new online facility allows you to book a small-motorhome spot up to 24 hours before your arrival, for a minimum of two nights. Some pitches will still be available on a first-come, first-served basis, so there may still be space if you don't get around to booking.

 

Online bookings carry a £5 booking fee, while advanced telephone and email bookings are more expensive, with a £7.50 fee.

 

Small campervans are accepted at the three main National Trust sites, but electric hook-up is only available at Wasdale in limited numbers. Chemical-disposal is not available at any site. The Trust's fourth site – Hoathwaite – has no facilities, so while campervans are accepted you are required to have your own toilet facilities onboard.
