Waterside House Campsite is in a beautiful part of Cumbria, on the northern shores of Lake Ullswater. The pretty village of Pooley Bridge is one mile from the campsite and can be easily reached by road or the lakeshore footpath.
Campers: All are welcome at the campsite however groups of adults or families looking from late nights and nightlife are discouraged as we have a strict noise curfew. Waterside House provides excellent facilities and a peaceful park in which to relax and enjoy your holiday in the midst of the Lakeland Scenery. If you select a non electric pitch you can choose your own pitch on arrival. This means your pitch is allocated on a first come first served basis. However, if you would like to know where your spot would be, then electric hook up may be the way forward. Our online booking system allows you to choose your preferred option.

Our camping pods are like an upside-down boat, clad with a wraparound roof, all very well insulated with sheep’s wool in the walls, and with a special foil layer under the tiles to help keep summer temperatures in check. There’s good head height and plenty of light from the double-glazed lockable French doors which, together with a smaller high rear window, provide a good through draft.
