Nestled in a beautiful woodland setting on a traditional Lakeland farm, Church Stile Farm and Holiday Park in Wasdale occupies a stunning valley location in the Western Lake District and is only a few miles from the Cumbrian coastline.
We are a family and pet friendly holiday park with accommodation options including hard standing and grass camping pitches with electric hook-ups, luxury static caravans and our superb glamping option – The Shepherds Huts.
Facilities onsite include disabled access toilet blocks with showers, a children’s play area, laundry rooms, washing up areas and campers can park for free onsite.
We have three caravans sleeping between 4 and 6. Both have full central heating, shared family bathrooms with shower facilities and fully fitted self-catering kitchens with a fridge, freezer and microwave.
Our hand crafted Shepherds huts are a popular glamping choice - providing a 16th Century alternate to tent camping. There is space next to each hut for pitching a tent and both huts have their own BBQ and firepit with outdoor furniture.
These romantic and cosy huts include a comfortable sofa bed, wood burning stove, rechargeable lanterns, cups, plates, kettle and utensils.Bed linen is provided but please bring your own towels, torches and food (and a cool box for summer).
The huts have access to a nearby toilet block with showers and laundry facilities.
Our camping pitches are set on 7 acres of land with pitches for up to 70 tents, hard standing pitches for camper vans and 17 electric hook-up points.
We recommend booking electric hook-up pitches in advance to avoid disappointment. Cars can be parking next to your pitch and the area has its own fully equipped shower block with disabled facilities and a laundry room.

Wasdale is one of the most striking scenic valleys in the Lake District National Park and is home to England’s deepest lake, highest mountains and smallest church. The area is a hub for outdoor activities giving plenty of advantages to enjoy walking, climbing, cycling and mountain biking and kayaking opportunities.
Whist we boast a beautiful location in the Lakes, we are also only 7 miles from the seaside town of Seascales and the Cumbrian coastline’s shingle and sand beaches.
