Lake District Camping in Ennerdale


Are you looking for totally unique lake district camping experience?  A camping plot to call your own?  At the Wild Wool Barn we offer just that; an exclusive lake-view camping experience available for a limited number of tents (sorry no camper vans) for a limited number of days per year.  The site is an absolute hidden gem.  The picturesque campsite (for maximum of 7 campers and only available for 28 days a year) offers a rare opportunity to camp in  isolation overlooking the stunning views of Ennerdale Water.

Camping in Ennerdale

We offer 3 pitches: 1 x Large tent for up to 4 people, 1 x Medium tent up to 2 people, and a single pitch for walkers on the Coast to Coast.  Campers have shared use of toilet and bathroom.  The shower currently only has cold water as we are awaiting the installation of Solar thermal water heating system.

If you are on the Coast to Coast Walk (or Duke of Edinburgh group) please phone for availability (01946 861270) as we can usually accommodate Coast to Coast walkers on a single night basis.


The site has chairs and tables and an undercover area to store equipment or for cooking, for occasional use when the Lake District weather is unusually inclement!!  If you don’t fancy cooking we can offer breakfast at £7 per head and for evening meals you could head down to Ennerdale Bridge to savour the local cuisine at one of the 2 pubs there (2.5 mile lake-shore walk), or you could enjoy an evening Bar-B-Q watching the sunset over Ennerdale Water.  The perfect location for the start of many great adventures

Please phone Susan on 01946 861270 for all camping inquiries
