Low Wray Campsite, Low Wray, nr Ambleside, CumbriaA night or two camping at this lakeside location is, quite frankly, unforgettable. Low Wray National Trust Campsite sits on the quieter western shore of Lake Windermere, and if the weather holds to give a decent sunrise over the lake, it can feel like the most relaxing place on earth.

As you'd expect from a National Trust site, it's well organised with good facilities. There are two main areas for camping; one set back from the lake in a clearing surrounded by trees, another right on the shore with a scattering of trees and expansive views across the water. The latter is the best place to pitch, despite a surcharge (which varies according to location: £7.5 - £10) and longer walk from the car.

Aside from the great location next to England's largest lake and the possibilities for sailing, kayaking, and fishing, the campsite is well positioned to take in some of the Lake District's 'dry' attractions. There are plenty of opportunities for walking and off-road cycling, with paths leading directly from the campsite. Not forgetting that this is also Beatrix Potter country, so there's a plethora of Peter Rabbit-related activities to enjoy.

COOL FACTOR Unforgettable lakeside camping.

WHO'S IN? Tents, small campervans, dogs - yes. Caravans, groups - no.

ON SITE About 120 pitches; no hardstanding. New reception and shop; laundry (tokens from shop); kids' playground; showers; disabled facilities; boat launch (non-powered craft only). Timed barrier in place for arrivals. Midges can be vicious - take repellent. No campfires; BBQs off the ground okay.
