Camping, Glamping & Lodges

The perfect place For a night under the stars

Having been a licensed camping and caravanning site for over 20 years and provided the perfect setting for many happy memories made here, we cannot wait to start our 2021 season with our exciting new plans to extend and improve our caravan and camping and glamping experience. It’s been a few years in the planning and a huge investment for our family! We hope you enjoy our new development as much as we will.

We are a Covid secure business and have put in place all measures required to comply with health and safety guidance. PLEASE ensure you read our letter here so you are prepared for what facilities are and are not available due to Covid-19 during your stay. General site rules and regs are available here and plans of estate grounds.

If you would like a booking request form please fill in the bottom section of this page and we will reply with availability. We look forward to hearing from you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Got a question? Check our FAQs or message us in the form below

  • What’s happening during our stay?

    Check out our Events Calendar. There may be some activities or events that interest you or may affect your stay. There’s plenty to do/see/play through-out the year at Blaithwaite, so there is always something happening and something for you do! Such as woodland walks, family days, craft fayres, treasure hunts etc! Or maybe some guided Outdoor activities for the children to attend, so you can make the most of some adult time.

    There are occasions when we have weddings and events, necessary estate activities such as upkeep/ maintenance or livestock / nature needs when we may restrict access within the Estate. We aim to keep this to a minimum but the information is available for you prior to your stay to enable you to make the very best of your stay with us.

    All our available activities are on our activities page (highlighted and  linked) should you wish to find out more. We strongly recommend you book prior to your stay, being a small family run business we need to plan ahead… and we really don’t like to disappoint!

  • If I book multiple pitches will they be together? / Can I request a pitch?

    Sometimes we can, sometimes we can’t. it all depends on what you and your friends/family have booked, don’t worry though you will never be far from one another.

    No, it is one tent per pitch. If you would like to bring two tents then you will need to book two pitches.

If when you get to the office you find there is no one there to check you in please ring Kate or Mal and someone will come and show you to your pitch.
