Waterside House is a beautifully situated family run Lake District campsite situated on the northern shores of Ullswater in the Lake District. Our Bell Tents look directly out on to Lake Ullswater and have amazing views of the surrounding fells.

Our 5 metre diameter Lakeside Nordisk Bell Tent is perfect for a larger family. The raised side panels allow for a roomier glamping experience. The bell tent is fully furnished and samples the best view of the Ullswater Valley.

Waterside Farm is perfectly positioned at the foot of Barton Fell, it is an ideal base for mountain biking, walking, sailing, fishing, and pony trekking or simply relaxing. The pretty village of Pooley Bridge is one mile from the campsite and can be easily reached by road or the lakeshore footpath. Here you will find local shops and cafes as well as inns serving excellent bar food and traditional real ales.

"Fantastic stay"

Mrs R Collier-Baker - Stayed with family, Aug 2017

Absolutely loved the bell tent we stayed in. Everything you need for a great camping trip without any of the faff/preparation of regular camping.

Everything you need for a great camping trip without any of the faff/preparation of regular camping. Plus it was so spacious and very comfortable and warm. The campsite location is fabulous and we had a great weekend enjoying the outdoor adventures the lake district has to offer. My only slight niggle was we booked this weekend because of a last minute cancellation and no reduction in price/allowance for less nights was offered. However once we got there and enjoyed the weekend it was worth every penny !!

Stayed with my 13yr old son, the clamping pod was booked as a bit of novelty accommodation but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and facilities contained; Double bed, TV, WIFI, built in bluetooth speaker, table and 2 chairs, shower and toilet, induction hob and cooker, seating area, towels, cooking equipment and probably additional things I have forgotten to mention. Everything was spotless and in working order as new. Its well placed for a short walk to Grasmere for shop and restaurants. The owner made us feel welcome and helpful in parking, storing bikes and general advice. I do not have anything negative to say as, it was all fantastic.

We recently stayed in the Bell tent-Tipi and it was a wonderful setting, unfortunately the weather wasn't on our side as it rained pretty much the whole time, so we struggled to cook and keep warm. It would be nice to have somewhere to cook on wet days, like a basic camp kitchen or just a veranda for shelter, but other then that we enjoyed our stay, and it's a nice walk to Pooley Bridge from the campsite.

We Stayed in The Tipi section of the campsite and we were delighted with the Bell-Tent size, cleanliness, security ( a Padlock) and the facilities provided. The staff were great from a comprehensive introduction to regional knowledge and friendliness. The site was on the Ullswater Way so a fantastic base for wallking, and close proximity to Pooley Bridge (15 mins walk) for pubs and restaurants and the magnificent Steamers that sail regularly each day. Will definitely return to this campsite.

"Bell tent with fabulous view"

Mrs S Emms - Stayed with family, May 2017

It was lovely to arrive and have everything set up for us. Staff were helpful and provided more throws when asked. The setting was beautiful with easy access to local attractions. The description of what was in the tent could be more comprehensive and a cheese grater... It was lovely to arrive and have everything set up for us. Staff were helpful and provided more throws when asked. The setting was beautiful with easy access to local attractions. The description of what was in the tent could be more comprehensive and a cheese grater would have been useful. My family found the cushion beds a little uncomfortable and the futon would be very small for 2! However we had a great time and would visit again.

"A great location and a great camping"

We stayed in a Tipi which was well equipped and had a great location right next to the lake and had a great time. If you like water activities you can't beat it as Ullswater is a fantastic setting and the lake access is good. The walk to Pooley bridge was pleasant and there's a variety of pubs etc to give a break from camp food. The campsite is a basic site with good washing facilities and showers, a basic shop and kids play area, but at the end of the day it does not need more. This sort of site is all about camping near a lake and that's what it offers. If you have a boat, canoe etc. then you can't beat it. We went in the second half of the May holiday week and while a fair few on site, it was not overly busy. I suspect it was busy over the bank holiday. The only thing really needing some attention is the main jetty which needs some maintenance work. Great British camping in a fantastic location.
