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 now accept a couple of small campervans as well as tents.

We're all looking forward to meetings you soon.

From Sunday the 17th of November we will be closed until Friday 3rd of April 2020 when we will open again for the new season. We are still able to take your bookings for next year so please call 017687 76752 or email to let us know you're coming.
