Reviewer: Zephyr55 3 reviews from this member

 Had a two night stay here and was really impressed by standard of site and facilities, showers, shop, games room etc. Great view over fells and some fantastic sunsets.

Ground when we visited was very soft and this was causing problems with cars but summer 07 was very very wet.

Can't comment on how kids would rate play facilties as only had a teenager who was most impressed with showers and the nearby pub.

No drawbacks apart from the its a canny slog up from Keswick with bags of shopping.

 This campsite is one of the best we have been to.

Wonderful views, clean facilities, games room and a campers kitchen where campers can go and use a kettle and microwave.

Also on site is a shop which sells basic things like bread, milk eggs.

The path down to Keswick itself runs down by a stream and have to say it is a long walk back up to the site but if you go to Keswick most people are there to walk anyway.

I think you have to book this site well in advance if you are a tourer it was full when we were there but well worth booking.

You will not be dissapointed.

 First visit here - would definitely come back.

Views over Keswick were superb. Site was very clean, main shower block was always clean and tidy. The toilet block nearer the pitches was more basic and in need of updating, but again clean. On site shop was very well stocked and the attached 'restaurant' served good home cooked food.

Bit of a walk into Keswick - about 25 minutes downhill through the woods - if you have small children then this might be the only problem, especially at night.

All in a great site with good facilities and in a great posistion.

 This was my third visit here.

Nothing had changed, it is still a fantastic site.

The facilities are first class, The toilet block is modern and clean and wherever you pitch its not too far away.

The campers kitchen is brilliant and the cafe serves an excellent breakfast.

Keswick is a lovely mile and a half walk away,through woods and next to a stream.

The site itself is set in a peacefull location with stunning views and has easy access onto the fells.Walla crag or bleaberry fell is a short walk away.

Highly recomended.

 Beautiful clean site in a stunning location.

The top toilet and shower block was very clean and spacious. Plenty of hot water. The block on the camp field appeared older and not quiet as good.

The caravan pitches vary in size and some are very close to the neighbouring pitches. Also the best place on the site is near the top due to the views and a long walk back up a steep hill to the shower block from the lower pitches. Remember to take a big hammer and some decent hard ground pegs as the ground for your awning is quite hard.

A shop on site with adjoining cafe which serves an excellent breakfast at a reasonable price. The shop itself is well stocked with food, bits and pieces, beer and wine. There is also a pub just outside the main gate. An excellent campers kitchen is provided which uses tokens available at the reception. This includes microwave, hobs, toasters and kettle. Wash-up sinks are in this area and large with plenty of free hot water. There are tables and chairs available. The room next door has seating with games and a drinks vending machine. This is the area where we believe you can get wireless Internet connection. There is a games room with ping pong, table football and pool table. There are laundry facilities.

There is a public footpath just by the entrance that takes you into Keswick.

All in all this is a very pleasant site and I would recommend a visit.

 Castlerigg hall is a beautiful site in an idyllic setting. The site is very clean, and the facilities are excellent - with the exception of the camping field shower block. It is a bit shabby and in need of upgrade (its clean though and kept clean throughout the day).
The campers kitchen is fantastic and has electric hobs, kettles, microwaves, tables and chairs and a freezer - oh and don't forget the telly! We used this a couple of times due to our tent leaking every time the rain started.
The camping field is on quite a slope, and its not really too easy to find a good pitch when its busy. Having said that, if you don't mind sleeping on a slope then there's not a problem. The site is quite well drained too and no mud baths when packing up in the rain.
One negative I have is that a lot of drivers were choosing to park their vehicles beside their tents, which was taking up space on the field and also leaving big tyre marks too. There is ample space for parking around the field.

The other shower block was fantastic and had small wash cubicles as well as showers. Games room was good too and the laundrette. Another thing that impressed me was that the site has free wifi access too. The on camp shop was great and reasonably priced too. As was the on site cafe - food is cooked to order, so don't be surprised at a slight wait for your breakfast. It will be worth the wait.

There isn't a kids play park, but there's a fab big field for ball games etc and the views from the field are phenomenal. The staff were efficient and generally friendly. No problems on site with noise either.

This site is fantastic and the only thing that let it down for us was our tent - which was returned to the shop after our visit.

 Had 2 nights here and had wanted to try it out since we'd had a wander around whilst stopping at Castlerigg Farm across the road.

Its a nice site with excellent facilities though we only used the showers, toilets and bathroom (so nice after a hard day on the hills to be able to soak in a bath). The showers are free and the bathroom is available for £2.50 for half an hour.

Facilities on site which we never used are a kitchen and dining room, games room, laundry room and shop.

There are three separate toilet/shower blocks, one at each of the 2 tent fields plus the main block near the reception.

The tent fields themselves are quite big, both fields are sloped though so if you like flat pitches you're out of luck, though if you are lucky you may find a patch of ground that isn't to bad.

There is a large recreation field for the kids to stretch their legs playing ball games or whatever else they want to do, can recommend kite flying as the field always seems to get a breeze.

Lovely views from the site, handy road access to the rest of the Lake District, 555 Kewick to Lancaster buses stop at the end of the lane leading to the site so if you have a walk down to Keswick and don't fancy the steep walk back up its not a problem.

Lots of walks from the site are included in a guide book available form the reception together with a map of the walks.

All in all a great site.

 This was our 1st visit to Castlerigg as we normally head for Limefitt, however that campsite is alot smaller than it used to be so we headed for Castlerigg Hall. 
We had a brilliant time, it was cold on a night time but the views and the walks are amazing. The staff are all very friendly and the toilets etc are very clean. We were only going to stay for seven nights but ended up staying for ten. Very laid back campsite and nothing is too much trouble for the staff,  we hope to back for August bank holiday fingers crossed. Our daughter also loved the goats and the pony.

 Stopped on this site in july amid heavy downpours
the tent pitch we had was well drained. The site shop was well stocked and the staff helpful. The toilet block near reception was nice & clean hot showers and driers. Laundry, kitchen & lounge area kept nice. The whole of the site very pleasant what would have made it even better would be hook ups for tents.

 Have camped here a couple of times and whilst it is a great campsite the field for tent pitches is on a hill, I'd often wake up in middle of night halfway down the bed
