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

The Tipis are made from cotton and have a raised floor which is carpeted, providing a warmer camping experience. Everything you need is inside the tent including futon bed, cooking utensils, gas stove, rechargeable lanterns and fairy lights. An outdoor fire pit is included as is the first basket of kindling and logs.

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.

"Overall very satisfied"

Miss S Boyer - Stayed with partner, Sep 2018

Couldn't fault anything. You get what you pay for. I think it was very good value for money in my opinion. Will definitely return. The only thing I will say which may be a downfall for others, however we didn't mind, it states that pooley bridge is a 15 minute walk... Couldn't fault anything. You get what you pay for.

The only thing I will say which may be a downfall for others, however we didn't mind, it states that pooley bridge is a 15 minute walk when really it is around 35 minutes.

"Beautiful location but tipi very run down"

Dr J Tweedlie - Stayed with family, Sep 2018

The location of our tipi at Waterside House was amazing with spectacular views across lake Ullswater. However, it was expensive for what you got as everything in the tipi felt cheap and worn. The bed was broken, the pan we used had a broken handle. All cooking utensils... The location of our tipi at Waterside House was amazing with spectacular views across lake Ullswater. However, it was expensive for what you got as everything in the tipi felt cheap and worn. The bed was broken, the pan we used had a broken handle. All cooking utensils looked dirty, unfortunately the shabbiness of the tipi has put me off returning.

I stayed here with my family last week for a couple of nights in a tipi and throughly enjoyed it! Despite the weather being very windy, (our tipi luckily stayed standing) we all had a great time exploring Ullswater. Staff were very friendly and helpful, Debbie gave us some great places to visit and walks! The tipi was clean and had everything we needed, as well as the toilets and wash facilities! Would definitely reccomend and will be back! Thank you for our stay.

Stayed in a teepee on the farm .Excellant location area was lovely and clean.Arrived early and the lady in the shop was incredibly helpful and all with a smile .Accomadation was spotless .The only issue we had was the futon it was like sleeping on a wooden pallet and because of this we left a day early as we were unable to sleep it was so uncomfortable.Would be better to recommend on website to bring air beds and to use the futon as a base.We set off very early and realised there’s no drop off for your key might be worth having a post box for this as paying a deposit I was concerned someone could access our tent once we left .We would definitely recommend this campsite great value for money clean,quiet and beautiful just don’t forget your air bed .

Mrs J Guest - Stayed with family, Jul 2018

First stay in one of the Tipis, fantastic location right on the lake shore. Camp site nice & clean, recently refurbished shower/toilet blocks. Security came round at night so no issues with any unsociable behavior, very family friendly.

"Total tranquility"

Miss S Alexander - Stayed with family, Jul 2018

If you want to relax and get in touch with nature, you can't beat this calm campsite for friendly staff, cleanliness and little finishing touches that made our day - such as the marshmallows in our tipi on arrival.
