The view from our motorhome and campervan pitch site


Located within the peaceful grounds of Brathay Hall, we have six grasscrete pitches available for weekend stays, and some mid-week stays in summer, including electrical hook-up. 

Access to a water supply is available onsite, but please note that this isn't at the pitch site.

You are welcome to enjoy the grounds of Brathay Hall during your stay.

We are unable to offer toilet or showering facilities, or disposal of chemical toilet waste. Whilst canopies for campervans/motorhomes are fine, we do no permit pitching of tents.

Please note: the site is on sloping ground, so level-up wheel ramps may be required.

Add some adventure to your stay!

Add Adventure!

If you're using one of our pitches and want some extra adventure, we've got a range of exciting activities for you on the Brathay Estate!

Choose from a variety of adventurous activities overseen by our fully qualified instructors.

Take to the water and enjoy kayaking, canoeing (solo, or in groups on our Challenger canoes), or a voyage on our vintage whaler rowing boats. 

We also have expert-guided aerial activities including high ropes, climbing walls, zip wire, tree abseiling, the exhilarating 'leap of faith' and the 2-person challenge of the high Vs.

If you'd prefer something a bit less adrenaline-fuelled, we can take you on a guided walk in the local area, with a level of challenge to suit you, from a couple of hours enjoying the views from a small hill, to a full-blown mountain day.

Plus, we've got the thrills of local ghyll scrambling, discovering bushcraft skills, and some fascinating problem-solving exercises.
