 Stayed 2 nights, Fri & Sat after failing to get in at Caravan Club site on the lake in Keswick which was full to overflowing. Having seen the hoards of people there, Castlerigg turned out to be a much better option. Site is in a beautiful location with fantastic views over the lake. Grounds are well maintained. On site takeaway / cafe was very handy, Saturday night pizzas and early morning bacon butties went down well with the kids. Pub in the hotel at the end of the drive (not part of the site) is a bit shabby but decent enough for a drink and bite to eat. Toilet block in tent field was clean but only 2 showers, main toilet block near reception was much better, modern, clean, plenty of showers and loads of hot water. Free freezer in Campers Kitchen was useful, able to buy food for bbq at the market in Keswick and store for a few hours. Weather was superb which always makes a difference. A childrens play area would have been good but kids were happy enough kicking a ball around on the football field. Overall a very good site, would certainly return.

 A word of warning - this site is not for those of you who prefer very basic sites, or ones with few facilities in remote locations. However, Castlerigg Hall has much to recommend it.

The views from the wooded tent camping field are exceptional. From the pitch we chose there were uninterrupted views of Skiddaw, Keswick and Bassenthwaite Lake, and these were especially impressive in the evening. Tents and caravans - never ideal bedfellows - are completely separate.

The camping block has toasters, freezers, hobs, washing machines, excellent showers, a games room and an exceptionally well stocked shop. This means it is far removed from the type of site we usually head for. Despite this, we couldn't help but be charmed by Castlerigg Hall.

The site is incredibly well looked after, and the owners and staff have a clear conservation agenda that goes well beyond the usual commercial concerns of such large sites.

One of the best things about the place is the location. The proximity to both Keswick and the Castlerigg stone circle are clear advantages. The walk into Keswick is along a very beautiful path through some glorious woodland, with terrific views of Derwentwater.

I came here with a small group of friends and we would definitely all stay here again.

 We visited this site near Keswick at Easter this year, this was our second visit. We were very lucky, we arrived early and avoided the rush, the staff were very accommodating.

The facilities here are generally excellent, the cafe provides a takeaway menu in the morning and in the evening, portion size is great for the price, however it gets busy. We noticed that they would make up flasks for campers who had limited kit, we felt that this was real old fashioned service.

The campers kitchen and lounge area came in real handy when the weather turned cold one evening, very relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

One downside is that the shower block on the camping field is starting to show signs of age, it would benefit from a real deep clean. However a short stroll and you at in the main facilities, centrally heated, all mod cons, at no extra charge, it is worth the short walk!

Great site, but it does get really busy at bank holidays, best to have a back up plan as they don't accept bookings for tents which is a real shame, I think they have a great campsite, it would be nice if they could reward repeat customers with the facility to book a pitch in high season.

 It was my first time staying at this site as was unsuccessful trying to book on a near by "camping and Caravan Club" campsite for one night so we took a chance and drove down as they don't allow tents to book as it's first come first serve.

When we arrived the staff on reception were very helpful, and looked like they had lots of information on the area. The Tent field is off to one side and well away from the road, during the day you could slightly hear some traffic but it's really background noise and at night no traffic can be heard. They have plenty of tent spaces with us having a big tent (a Vango Diablo 400) we had plenty of room for the car as well and the field could of held more tents.

The toilets and showers were always clean and tidy.

Would recommend to people to visit here, and I will be revisiting this site in the future.

 This camp site is all that the reviews have said about it. The cafe is good and clean and tidy throughout. The pub just outside the camp site is ok, only veggie meals. If you want a good meal go to the Packhorse Inn in Keswck, the food there is very good, best to book.(01768 771389). Also pub called The Lake is good.
Glad I found this website, my other half had found a place to camp which seemed it was still in the dark ages.

 We stayed on this site just after the new school term started so the site wasn't that busy. The shop is wonderfully well stocked and the cafe was very handy. The kitchen facilites were a huge plus as well as the large chest and upright freezer for campers use. We had lots of fun in the games room playing table tennis, take your own bats and ball otherwise its 20p per hour.The showers, toilets and wash ups were impeccable as was the whole site. The views of Lake Derwent were stunning during late afternoon,not even the mast slightly obscuring the view put us off. Keswick is a lovely town and it is possible to walk which takes about 20 mins. There is also a walk to the lake from the site and further up the road which I was assured is worth it. The only downsides I can think of about this site are, you cannot book for tents so in the high season it must be quite difficult to get in the second being that the tent field was on a slope and 70 % of the tent pitches are like it. Only the pitches nearly the toilet block are flat so if you go out of season and pick a flat pitch you will have a whale of a time. One slight add on was there was no children's play area.

 Have just come back from a long weekend at Castlerigg. This was my first time solo camping. I loved every minute of being on the site and didn't want to come home. The views were stunning and facilities 10 out of 10 for cleanliness and friendliness. I have stayed on many campsites in the past few years but this will definitely take some beating. Everything about it was perfect (even the weather!). Look forward to spending time at this site again.

 I love this site, it has excellent facillities, clean toilets and showers and an excellent indoor picnic area with a book swap facility.
The only problem is that you can not book for tents, only managed to get on once after trying several times a year for many years.
I often recommend this site to friends but maybe I should keep quiet so that I will have a better chance of getting a pitch.

 This is a spacious, clean and well maintained site; we stayed here once before 10 years ago and will certainly consider visiting again. One point worth noting, not mentioned by other reviewers is that (like many sites in this area) they do not take bookings. If I have any criticism, it is that the site was difficult to contact by phone and they did not respond to e-mails.

 1st time I've camped out in a tent, it will not be the last. The site was perfect. It was clean, had showers with hot water, clean toilets, a kitchen area to wash dishes and prepare food. The kitchen contained a fridge and a free freezer for guests to use. There are also 2 hot rings to use to cook on.
There is an area where guests can get together with a selection of games and books. On site is a large shop with a cafe attached if you do not want to cook. The best part off this site is the views.
Outstanding! The views are fantastic rain or shine. Site well recommended
