Beautiful isolated campsite on the quiet eastern side of Consiton Water in the Lake District. You have to hire the whole site but it can accommodate up to 40 people. It doesn’t have much in the way of facilities (no showers or drinking water) but if you’re after a secluded active weekend it’s hard to beat. It’s also a great place to walk into Grizedale Forest from or explore the lake where you can visit Peel Island, the inspiration behind Wild Cat Island from Swallows & Amazons.
