Rydal Hall Campsite, Ambleside

Campsite Covid-19 Protocol

Our tranquil campsite set in the woodlands surrounding Rydal Hall is ideal for individuals or families looking for a quiet stay in the outdoors. Situated in a conservation area, it is perfect for those wanting a simple base from which to explore the Lake District.

The shower and toilet block sources water from our private supply, whilst electricity from our hydro-electric plant augmented by solar power ensures excellent facilities and keeps our carbon footprint to a minimum.

The site is not suitable for campervans, caravans or motorhomes, and there are no electric hook-ups.

It is perfect for those wanting a simple base from which to explore the Lake District, England’s largest National Park.
