Had a great two night stay here recently. The site is on a hill on the outskirts of Keswick. We had a hard standing fully serviced pitch. We were on the bottom tier. Nice and peaceful, good tv reception. The toilets were very clean and the showers were wet room type walk in. Very nice!

You can walk into the town down a ginnel alongside the site. Keswick is probably the best town in thew lakes. You can also walk down to the lakeside along the shore and again back into town. The walk back is a bit of a pull uphill especially in the hot weather we have had of late, but thoroughly enjoyed it.

The site shop is great. They have all the bits & pieces you may forget. Food, books, maps etc. There is also an on site restaurant although we didn't use it so can't comment.

2adults, 7. 5 m caravan, full awning, Land Rover free lander pitch 22/fully serviced, hard standing.

Reception staff exceptionally helpful. Grounds staff in evidence every day-checking vehicles, outfits, problems etc-also on hand to show you to yr pitch. Was told 10 amp electric but never caused us an issue. Pitch quite tight for our set up-only space for 2chairs to sit out if we pulled the car forward. Strip of grass to front of pitch was like a runway for the bunnies! And where you get wild bunnies you get plentiful droppings so had to be careful not to tread into awning. Shower facilities excellent-wet rooms with sinks, well separated so clothes never got wet. Touch controls simple to use. Nearest to our pitch was the small block by the pods-3 ladies showerooms/plentiful toilets and 2 rooms with just sinks. We had breakfast one morning at jiggers cafe-good value for money well prepared and lovely cafetière coffee. Oddly the best lake views were from the recreation field but able to take chairs and sit there all day if you wanted. We were unfortunately hit by edge of storm hector so 12 hours severe winds-not nice experience. If we go again - we would request a pitch on the lower terrace 28/29 as definitely more room for our gear and similar views of the fells. Only 4or 5 pitches seem to have the stunning advertised lake views, but clearly informed through the website. We were given an extensive information pack which included discount vouchers for selected performances at the theatre by the lake but we had already booked our tickets as an anniversary treat. Lovely small theatre and cafe has views of the lake.

We would recommend cellar 12 coffee rooms in Penrith-(we had to go to town to get some caravan supplies otherwise wouldn't have bothered) again lovely staff delicious food and reasonable prices. Keswick is my favourite Lake District town as it seems a good mix of farming folk and visitors unlike Bowness or Windermere.

So impressed with the whole experience. Best shower block I’ve ever seen. Very new looking facilities with private washroom and shower all in one cubicles. Bar restaurant and laundry facilities including iron and board. Stunning views and very helpful reception staff.

Booking early is recommended as gets really booked up very early

The access road is steep and narrow but this is a lovely site with a 30 minute downhill walk through the woods to the town where there are plenty of attractions. Frankly, and looking at previous reports, we find the 'lake view' very over rated from any point in the site. That being said the scenery generally is attractive. There are rabbits everywhere you look!

We had had a small bump on our way and the nearside rear light cluster was smashed. The warden (Duncan) was unbelievably helpful spending a couple of hours replacing bulbs and adjusting wiring to ensure we could proceed within the law. We cannot thank him enough for his endeavours. Indeed, we found all the staff to be most helpful and considerate at all times.

There is a bus route back from town which runs every 30 minutes.

We had a most enjoyable stay.

Beautiful setting with wonderful views of Derwentwater. Facilities are good with kitchen and seating area to use for when it's wet outside which happens quite a lot in the Lakes. Showers and toilets are modern and clean. Keep your dogs tethered as per the rules of they'll be off after the rabbits in the area. Shop is good for provisions and local info.

Fantastic site! The site is easy to find and well signed. It is close to Keswick and is easily in walking distance for those who are there for walking. We used the site for the Keswick Mountain Festival so did the walk several times! The site is really well set out and many of the pitches have lovely views. The facilities are all very clean and modern. The thing we really liked however was that the prices are clear on their information and unlike some sites in the area, they did not hike their prices for the Keswick Mountain Festival period. This alone means that we will certainly use the site again as I like to support people who are fair.

Stayed here on 1st night of a roadtrip to the West Highlands. Splashed out on a superior pitch E2 which was fabulous but did cost £35. Excellent toilet/shower facilities - piped music and modern fixtures/fittings - the only possible improvement would have been underfloor heating. Great little shop and on-site bar/restaurant + takeaway pizzas. The bar/restaurant had a lovely terrace with views of the lake. Walked to the stone circle and also the other way to the Great Wood (saw wild deer there). Rural site - great if you like walking direct from the site. Would definitely return.

This is a commercial site with shop café, bar etc.

The site has lovely views.

The staff are helpful and polite.

The wc/showers are as good as any I've seen in 45 years.

On the negative side this 3 day stay (not bank hol weekend), cost me more than 3 times my 3 day stay at CCC Kendal earlier this month. Both EHU etc.

The return from shopping in Keswick is a strenuous 1. 5 mile walk or category 4 cycle climb.

For the first 2 days I failed to recognise that the area that was overgrown with 2 years bramble growth was the sink for my pitch. Quite a few pitches were also weedy.

NOT acceptable at this price!

We stayed for two nights at this site with our two boys on our way up north and really enjoyed our stay. The facilities were first rate - with a very substantial shower/toilet/washing up/laundry/campers kitchen facilities all in the same building. There was also a very good shop on site and the best bit for us was the on site restaurant, which served the most delicious food! We still say now that the steaks we had were the best we've ever had! We really weren't expecting such a high standard of cuisine on a campsite, so it was a nice bonus and so handy not to have to venture out looking for somewhere to eat.

The campsite is on a slope down towards the lake (Derwent Water), but most pitches seemed level, as ours was, being on a terrace. This meant we had a beautiful views across the lake to the hills beyond. The site is in a good location, very handy for Keswick and all the amenities here.

There seemed to be always plenty of staff on hand at the site, in the reception, who were always very friendly and helpful.

Nothing negative to say about this site, we would definitely return.

One of the nicest campsites we have ever been to. Wonderful views over Derwentwater, though not from all pitches. We did not have a view from our pitch but saw it on the short stroll to the really excellent on site restaurant and bar. Terrace with a view, lovely food, friendly staff and reasonable prices. The washroom facilities on site are clean and modern, I particularly liked the underfloor heating in the showers. The shop is well stocked, we had some delicious local bacon. The walk in to Keswick, on the footpath through the woods is lovely, taking about 40 minutes, and there is a cafe on the way. Coming back is uphill most of the way, but not really too strenuous. We will be back.
