This little-known campsite is one of my absolute favourites, so let's keep it a secret, ok? The Lake District has arguably one of the most glorious landscapes in Britain, which can make it a pretty busy place in summer. Not so at Tarn Foot campsite. This unspoilt meadow is tucked away in the quietest corner of Cumbria. Green hills soar above the camping field and right next door is the beautiful lake of Loughrigg Tarn, perfect for wild swimming, tadpole hunting or just a spot of sunbathing on the shore. If you fancy iconic views and an ice-cream, the famed waters of Coniston and Windermere and the pretty streets of Kendal are all short drives away. You might struggle to leave the peace of Tarnfoot, though. This is the place to come for proper, old-school camping – there are no campervans or real facilities, just a rainbow of tents nestled in a heavenly valley.
