Loved everything about the Social District campsite. Beautiful fields right on lake Windermere with access to the water through a stunning oak forest. Hosts Abbie and Tom were friendly and attentive.
No overcrowding with plenty of space for all camping groups to have plenty of space.

Excellent stay with welcoming hosts! Amazing views of Lake Windermere, smart access down to the lake allowing for a very peaceful lakeside, relaxation period. Suitable for a country getaway for all ages. Very close to local shops and activities such as water sports, forest walks and site seeing.

Would highly recommend staying at Social District!
