Cumbria, England, United Kingdom

We are about half way between Kendal and Windermere. The main cycle lane into the Lake District is directly across the road, as is the Dales Way walking path.

The Den is in a semi-rural setting with views to the surrounding countryside.

For clarity's sake, during busy rush hours there is some traffic noise from the road, but evenings and nights are typically quiet.

Please note that we are not the Windermere Camping Site, despite the AirBnB map showing it close by!

During your stay
We are happy to help as much as you need, or leave you completely alone to do your own thing!

Can possibly collect you from the local train station (Staveley) or Oxenholme if I'm around the Kendal area already.
