New for 2020…Mongolian Yurt Experience

Camping in luxury? Oh yes. Our new Mongolian Yurts offer the perfect glamping option for a stay with family, friends, and you don’t even have to leave you furbabies at home if you book our dog friendly yurt.

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.

Well, folks, with the second lockdown we've now decided to call it quits for 2020. It's been a year like no other for everyone but as Scarlett said, "tomorrow is another day."

Next year we'll be open by the Mayday bank holiday, but are uncertain of Easter at this point because of COVID lockdowns and the like so please give us a call so we can discuss it with you and see where things are at and what the likelihood is.

We are still able to take your bookings for next year from Mayday weekend onwards in line with current COVID-19 regulations and restrictions, and our terms and conditions, so please call 017687 76752 or email to let us know you're coming.
