Lake District Holiday Tipis add a unique charm to camping.
Wow! Just look at these Tipis on the National Trust Camping site .... a romantic glamping vacation but they also have two singles beds so could just easily be a fun adventure camp for the family
As you can see these Tipis are fabulously kitted out and each Tipi comes with a wood-burning stove with a basket of eco-logs too. There is an outdoor cook area with all the necessary crockery, cutlery etc. A full list of all the thoughtful inclusion can be found here, you really just need to bring yourselves a towel (shower/toilet blocks have recently been refurbished) maybe some additional lighting and a book!
There is a small shop on-site but you if you are going to be self-catering then you would be advised to bring whatever you want to cook along too. The Tipi has a cold box for your use reusable ice blocks which can be exchanged at the shop. The Wasdale Head Inn is a short walk away and has a very popular walkers bar.
*One of the Tipi is also dog friendly. Read exactly what is included and more about the Wadale National Trust campsite, availability right here.
The Tipi at Grasmere is definitely a fun alternative to camping and saves you the bother of putting up a tent too! They sleep up to four on mattresses and also have a lockable chest for 'things' and a couple of waterproof bean bags. They come with solar lighting and a wood burning stove too for those chillier evenings.
A shower and toilet shack are available for guests and if you don't feel like doing your own cooking then check out the breakfast menu and pizza/evening meal menus at the YHA to save you the bother.
Availability and full details including sample menus available at the Grasmere YHA can be found here.

A wonderful location just as you head down the valley towards Ullswater. Plenty of walks from the campsite and just a short distance to the start of the Cumbria's famous Striding Edge on the majestic Hellvelyn.
The Tipis are operated by Nomad Events (see below) and will be pitched for you at the Skyeside Campsite which is adjacent to Brothers Water Inn and has the added bonus of serving meals daily in addition to having a camp shop.
