Open all year Ideal for walkers Coast nearby

The Old Post Office is a well-kept secret, hidden away towards the western side of the Lake District.

It is ideally positioned for getting to the mountains of Eskdale and particularly Wasdale, where you will find Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain. The site is also a perfect base for relaxation with the River Irt running alongside and fishing is available.

The Old Post Office is next to the village of Santon Bridge and The Bridge Inn is just across the bridge, serving bar meals and real ale.

There are grass and hardstanding pitches with electric, plus some fully serviced pitches. Facilities include toilets and showers, a washing up area, laundry and disabled/family room.

The coast at Seascale is only six miles away.

On site you can enjoy:

  • Grass and hardstanding pitches
  • Electric hook-up
  • Fully serviced pitches
  • Toilets
  • Showers
  • A washing up area
  • Laundry
  • Disabled/family room
