Originally down as a Grasmere trip but Great Langdale (Baysbrown Campsite in nearby Chapel Stile) is as close as we could get camping.
Grasmere - Home of one of the world's finest poets. It's unlikely you'll wander lonely as a cloud, or see daffodils but there are some wonderful walks and classic Climbs to enjoy.
Grasmere is in the heart of the lake district and plenty of walks start right in the village. You can head up Helvellyn and do the horseshoe backwards or amble up the delightful Loughrigg for fantastic views to some of the highest peaks.
Or walk / scramble up Helm Crag, the only Wainwright that Wainwright never managed.
There's plenty of opportunities for swimming too, in the local tarns.
Climbers won't be disappointed with the tremendous rock routes in the area.
There is even a classic scramble, Jack's rake, for those who can't decide on whether to walk or climb.
Nearby Ambleside has a cinema and two rather good vegetarian restaurants if you fancy some alternative fun.
And, of course, Grasmere has the finest gingerbread in the central lake district.
