Tranquil and surrounded by breathtaking views overlooking Ullswater, this campsite is a mile from the nearest road so the only sounds you'll hear are fellow campers and the rural ambient bleating of sheep. This is camping for people who really like camping – groups must be OK'd before they arrive – and hillwalking in ideal surrounds: in this case Helvellyn, England's third highest peak, and Striding Edge. For a change of pace you can hire a bike or a boat and get up to other out-door-y antics.

Busy in bank holidays and not much for kids used to portable DVD players, a few hours of lovely entertainment awaits those taking the steamer from Ullswater to Howtown and walking back.
