Camp Eden offers boutique camping, food and drink, and music with a range of outdoor activities on the doorstep including biking, hiking, wild swimming, and kids’ adventures.
The organizers say: “Camp Eden will be an incredible experience for anyone who is dying to escape into nature and unlock their wild side. After twelve months, we are looking forward to a summer in which we will revive our passion for nature.
“We are fortunate to have the stunning Lake District National Park on our doorstep so families and groups can stop by Camp Eden during the day and explore the neighborhood before returning for a hot shower, wood-fired pizza, and craft beer and relaxing on the Campfire. “
