Welcome

When we found Kestrel Lodge we were immediately smitten with the area. We wanted to create a traditional camping ground with lots of home comforts. A hot shower, covered areas for rainy days and a place to clean muddy boots and canine friends.

At Kestrel Lodge Campsite we allow campfires, as we know there is nothing nicer than relaxing around a roaring fire underneath the stars after a busy day out on the fells. We found Kestrel Lodge and fell in love with the area, we hope you do so too.

We're all looking forward to meetings you soon.
