I'm going to Great Langdale next week, all by public transport and walking - no car - but should make for a great adventure. Oh I should mention it's for my wedding anniversary, my wife is a very reluctant camper but I manged to persuade her to do it for me
All our other trips have been to places like Rome and Las Vegas, this one is my trip so we're going to the great out doors just down the road and I'm sure it'll be more romantic than seeing the Trevi Fountain or renewing our vows in a white wedding chapel performed by Elvis I just hope the wether holds out or else I'll never hear the end of it he he he

I grew up in the lakes! Wasdale Head is great place, to avoid the crowds park up in the pub car park in the early evening, get a few carry outs from one of the the best pubs in the world (Wasdale Head Inn) and hike up to Styhead Tarn. Bivvy by the tarn then get up v early for the sunrise on top of Scafell Pike. Awesome feeling, and you can be back down by mid morning to drive somewhere else! Early morning walking is the only way to see the Lakes in the summer, otherwise there are too many blundering ramblers association idiots.

Camped at Little Langdale site many times back in the 8os whilst doing my DofE awards. The man who runs the site can be scarry. This was back in the 80s so he may well not be there anymore. We nicknamed him Grizzly, he also ran the shop and if you did not know what you wanted straight away he would ask you to leave and join the back of the queue.
The showers are hot and clean with an area to wash your plates and stuff.
The Stickle Barn eating place/pub is good for food and there are some easy day walks all around.
Good times there.

The National Trust site can get full very quickly once camping season starts we always stay at Chapelstile site about 10 mins away.

Again lovely scenery a really simple site no hook up or proper pitches, 4 pound a person 2 quid for the vehicle at least it was that last year.

Anything a bit low may struggle in over the hump back bridge but our stock height bay goes in a treat. Ground can be a bit boggy if it has rained alot (Lake District alot) but the road is solid (not mud) there is a river and a brook running through the site.

Pub within walking distance 5 mins proper food and ale Cartwright or cartwheel can't remember which.

Default camped here last month...

A wicked and chilled out site. Stayed in a tipi which is alway an amazing experience, plenty of space for campervans though! However this site is not reccomended for the very low!!
