Overwater Woodlands is a hidden gem situated in the Northern Lake District National Park. It is an ultra-small scale camp (only 5 pitches) with a focus on sustainability and food. The camp itself is located in densely forested woodland with incredible views of Skiddaw and neighbouring fells. The camp is returning for 2024 after an amazing 2023 season. We (Lois & Nick) want to make your stay with us as enjoyable and comfortable as possible, so will be around to help with anything from eating/drinking recommendations, tips on walking/cycling routes as well as insider knowledge on where to pick the best local wild raspberries! We have owned this land for 20years so know the area extremely well! We are both experienced chefs (Nick has worked in professional kitchens) and we love to share food with our guests. A freshly made breakfast sandwich (sausage/egg) is included in the pitch price. We make the bread fresh each morning and source the eggs and sausages from local farmers/butchers that we know - you will be eating the very best local produce that tastes out of this world. Dinner around the fire is also available each evening (at an additional cost). We happily cater for vegans/vegetarians and people with gluten intolerances. We are both big believers in the 'analogue world' (and non-believers in the digital world) so we want to warn you that we do NOT have WiFi at the camp. Come and stay with us if you want to disconnect from the digital stresses of 21st Century life. If we ever need to get online we either pop down to the Sun Inn in Bassenthwaite village (which is our lovely local pub) or head up to the equally fantastic Mae's Team Room in Uldale. You may also find that to get a phone signal you will have to walk 100 meters up the road. You will truly be at one with nature at Overwater Woodlands; we regularly see red squirrels, deer and all manner of birds. Given the remote location of the camp we get the most amazing dark skies that are truly incredible for star-gazing on clear nights. We have everything you will need at camp in terms of facilities. There is a compost toilet, washing-up facilities and a hot shower on site. This is the closest you will be able to get to Wild Camping whilst still having a hot shower on your doorstep!
