Our brand new camping pods are timber built and insulated, taking away the stress of packing and unpacking a tent. The family pods can comfortably sleep 2 adults and 2 children or 3 adults (dimensions 2.7m x 4.4m). They have double glazed doors and window, electricity and a wall heater.

The pods are completely empty so you will need to bring camping gear, minus the tent. However, there is a picnic bench outside the pod.

Situated in the heart of Wasdale, arguably Cumbria’s most majestic valley, Church Stile Holiday Park and Campsite offers visitors the most spectacular location from which to explore and enjoy the Lake District.

Nestling in an idyllic oak woodland setting on a traditional Lakeland sheep farm, the area is a haven for wildlife with stunning views to the mountains. Yet the pretty village of Nether Wasdale with its 2 wonderful country inns serving hearty meals and fine ales, is only a two minute stroll away.

Wasdale is home to England’s deepest lake, highest mountain and smallest church and yet the wonderful beaches on Cumbria’s coastline are only a few miles distant. Whether you wish to simply enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this unspoilt valley or take advantage of the many opportunities for walking, climbing, cycling and kayaking or visit some of West Cumbria’s many attractions, Church Stile is your perfect location.

Things To Do while glamping in Wasdale in the Lake District

Wasdale is one of the big mountain valleys of the Lake District with the stunning scenery making a wonderful backdrop for your glamping holiday. The valley is home to England’s highest mountain (Scafell Pike), deepest lake (Wastwater) and smallest church (St Olaf’s). Church Stile lies at the heart of the valley in the pretty village of Nether Wasdale making it the ideal base for your holiday.

Wasdale offers wonderful walks both on the high fells and valley bottom. Wasdale head is nearby leading to Scafell Pike (977 m) and Great Gable (899 m) while others such as Yewbarrow and Kirk Fell are also easily reached.

Lying just 1 mile from Church Stile, Wastwater Lake, England’s deepest lake allows kayaks, canoes and rowing boats. There are numerous places to picnic or swim. The view across the lake was voted ‘Britain’s Best View’ in 2009.

Return to Church Stile

Turley, Janet - 19/10/2023


We returned to Church Stile after staying in a pod last year so knew what to expect,The pods are ideal for a cosy stay, but we had trouble making the heater work on the first night. When we let the staff know, they came round to fix it. When it still wouldn’t work for them, a plug in heater was delivered from their house, Great service. The shower blocks are warm and clean, the camp sit itself well organised and set out and Wasdale is beautiful.

Great camp site in a beautiful setting.

Round, Micheal - 18/09/2023


It’s a great site, in a great setting with excellent facilities. I particularly like the way the site is divided into different fields by nice hedges: it gives the site a smaller feel when in fact it is a decent size.

Atkinson, Lisa - 06/06/2023


This was our 2nd visit and we'll be back! It's a lovely, friendly site, I a beautiful location. A short drive or bike ride to Wastwater.The shower facilities could just do with an update, this is the only reason it's 4 and not 5 stars.That being said, I would still go back tomorrow. Fab holiday at a bargain price!

Excellent map so we could quickly find our way around. Very clean toilet & shower block, handy water and rubbish disposal points. We were in a pod near the woods, lovely spot. Whole site calm & peaceful with beautiful views. Pod has heating, lighting, electric sockets, lockable doors. Byo bedding. We were very happy & cosy.

Perfectly located with good facilities

Hines, Elizabeth - 07/04/2023


We stayed in a pod which was very clean, as basic as camping except no tent to put up/take down and the bonus of a radiator and plugs. Well located for our walk up Scafell Pike. Shop on site with good range of essentials(plus yummy sausages) and a pub in easy walking distance.
