 It was my first visit to Castlerigg Hall and my first time camping, after reading some postings prior the july postings I was a little unsure on what to expect as people mentioned overcrowding which I didn't experience and lack of showers, yes the toilet block we were near only had two showers, but the nine days I was there, I only had to wait once and that was only five minutes, the showers were hot and very clean, there was another block near reception that has a lot more showers.
It's a well looked after site, with a shop that sells quite a wide range and a cafe ideal for breakfast. And the bonus for me was a small pub just outside the site.
It's a site I will visit again, great staff and very helpful and friendly

 We arrived after 9.00pm on friday night with a wobbly front wheel on the motor bike. Seeing the full sign our hearts sank but we were told if you can find a space, pitch your tent. My partner's first time EVER in the lakes and we picked the best site.
The Crag hotel, at the entrance was a lovely little pub, good cider, friendly staff, the only disappointment was it was 100% veggie, we had to go into town to find some proper food.
The views from the site were stunning, if you ignored the phone mast. Definitley coming again, but hopefully earlier and certainly for longer.

 Many a people have told me about this site so we thought we would give it a try, much to our dismay! We arrived first thing in the morning as to get a slot on the tent field, what a nightmare! The field is a slope which isn't really a problem for me, but you couldn't move, tents were crammed in every nook and cranny! The toilet block was old, and rather dirty, we never once saw it being cleaned or a member of staff around the field! To top it off the was a lovely dead rabbit next to our tent that had been there for days! (lovely) So we were pretty much disappointed with this site much to or dismay, maybe we just got there on a bad week, who knows! (Oh watch out for the midges!)

 First visit to Castlerigg and definitly not the last,l ovely site, clean facilities, friendly staff and the view from the site is something else.
Very good base for walking the fells, Keswick only 20 mins walk away, good food at hotel next door if your of the veggie variety and pizza's and cooked breakfast available at site shop if your not.
Loads of rabbits and bats at night, oh yes watch out for mister badger if your on the tent field, leave any food out at night and he'll be off with it faster than a kid with an ASBO.
The only one gripe I can think of is on the van pitches you'll need VERY strong pegs if using an awning (mine may as well have been made of plasticine for all the use they were!). Trying to book again for later this year.

 Lovely Site, terrific facilities especially for walkers/cyclists, spectacular panoramic views, friendly staff.perfect for us on our first camping experience. Even though the tent field was on a slope, it was easy to pitch. Ideal for exploring Keswick and the lakes. Will be back.

Reviewer: Me_moto 1 review from this member

 We saw this campsite on the internet and was very impressed with the facilities and location etc. It was the first time we had been camping with our One year old Son so we was a bit unsure as to what we may need in a campsite. We were more than impressed with what was on offer, the Camper's Kitchen is an excellent idea as it enabled us to warm up bottles of milk, however regardless of whether you have a child or not it has a seating area, use of toaster, kettle, microwave and hobs. Also free use of the TV which was brilliant as the World Cup was on.

The showers were cleaned to a high standard, we only stayed one night but we saw the cleaner three times, which is always a good sign.
Excellent shop, it is open 12 hours with everything you need for a Good camping trip. The views were stunning. There was plenty of space between tents and you don't feel like you are all crammed in.

Overall this is an excellent campsite, highly recommended and we will be definitely visiting again soon.

 What a lovely site! We arrived to find the 'site full' sign across the entrance, but had a drive round and found there to be lots of available space, asked again at reception and were told that we could pitch if plenty of space would be left around us. Pitched at the bottom of the site near the cow field, over looking Keswick and Bassenthwaite beyond - gorgeous views and even better sunsets. Agree with all previous reviews. The site's on a bit of a slope so make sure you think about this when pitching. Lower toilet block could do with more showers, there were only two here, but more available in the upper block (near reception) which is brighter and seems to be newer. Also the only water stand pipe we found was next to the toilet block, which meant a little walk each time. Could do with more dotted around the site. Hungry Hikers breakfast cafe attached to the shop, serving breakfasts to those of us too lazy to make breakfast and then do the washing up - bit slow on service, and had to ask for cutlery and butter for the toast but otherwise the food was great and the staff really friendly. Definitely a good start to the day. The site was quiet and almost everyone was snoring by 11:30! Great to have a field for recreational use only. It meant the kids could play in a large area without bothering others with balls and frisbees. Good to see a site that thinks it not all about making money by cramming as many people on as possible. Two nights camping (2 adults, 5yr old and 2yr old) 31 pounds. Pub next door is small but has a nice beer garden. To sum up - Good value, lovely site, great views, helpful and friendly staff, fab facilities, kids were happy so we were happy - we will definitely return soon.

 Excellent site. Toilets & Shower facilities kept clean. If you forget anything, there is a well stocked shop. Views are fantastic. Friendly & helpful staff. There is a path through the woods which makes a nice evening walk into keswick. Plenty of room in between the tents. The only downside was noisy people in the next tent when they came back from the pub, however I will definitely be returning.

 Excellent and well run site, Great food in the cafe/shop, everything you need is there. The views from the site were fantastic, overlooking the derwent lake, great for those picture moments.

The Toilet/shower facilities were kept in excellent condition, very clean, spotless. (10/10)

I would definitely go back and I ve already told my friends about it. Not one to be missed!

 Beautiful well run site, fantastic views, excellent breakfast in cafe on site. Toilets immaculate, pub next door ok food, must rate as one of the best sites if not the best site in the lakes. Games room for kids to keep occupied, path from site into Keswick takes about 30-40 mins, downhill there uphill back .Good range of shops and lots of different choice of cafes, restaurants and pubs.
