Does it rain a lot in the Lake District?
Actually it does rain rather a lot but as the saying goes… ‘there is no such thing as bad weather, just inadequate clothing!’
While Cumbria does have a high average rainfall, we rarely get the boring and often miserable cloud and drizzle that often blights the southern and eastern parts of the country for weeks on end. The light quality is often fantastic, particularly during the autumn, winter and spring.
Weather transitions in the lakes can be fast-moving and one can occasionally experience all 4 seasons in less than 24 hours.
Family camping holidays in the rain bring back nostalgic memories for most of us but things have moved on significantly in the last 30 years…
All of our grass pitches have a central core of fine round pea gravel, virtually eliminating the bottomless muddy area that would have formerly passed as a pitch. Yet these pitches retain the greenness of the pitch once the tent is up.
Camping Pods provide a simple alternative to tents and eliminate the need for erecting and packing away tents in the rain.
Hobbit Holes come with a soft sleep ledge, WC and a large covered deck so you can sit out and admire the awesome alpine view while staying dry!
