 Great location for many of the Wainwright’s walks.

One directly from the camp site.

Really enjoyed our stay.

Good size pitches and excellent toilet blocks.

Fab views over towards the Catbells.

 I've reviewed this site before a few years ago but these are very different times with Covid-19 affecting everyone's lives. With overseas travel being affected, campsites are much busier as we head through summer 2020 so we were only able to book 2 consecutive nights. That was fine though as we moved on to another site in the Lakes for a few extra nights.

On arrival the barrier raised as our number plate was recognised as being pre-booked. The reception staff were friendly and information, and the warden was called to escort us down to our pitch. I think we got the last available campervan pitch, no 16, which is a little tight for motorhomes but fine for our 'van. Although tucked away it still had a pleasant view towards Derwentwater and the hills behind us.

The toilet/shower block is just round the corner too. I think it was one of three so plenty to go around for the campsite. The campsite used a wristband system which you hook on the door as you go into the block - the rule being no more than 6 people in at a time. Clever idea but sadly not every one stuck to the rules. Still, there were never more than 3 people in during the times I used the facilities. The cubicles and showers were always very clean and tidy too and the shower was lovely and hot!

Keswick itself was lovely as always albeit a bit busy. Shops insisted face masks were worn, which is currently "the norm", so we could still get around a few shops. There's a nice walk back up through the woods back to the campsite. We also had a car-free (and care-free) walk to castlerigg stone circle one evening too which takes about 25 minutes. There's endless walks in all directions if you really want to explore.

All in all, it was just great to get away for a few days in a beautiful, scenic area. The campsite is in a nice location if you don't mind being a little out of Keswick. Walking and buses are an option for the return journey. I'd highly recommend the site and the area.

 Amazing site with fabulous views. Facilities and ways of distancing were second to none. Couldn’t have felt safer.

Clean, well maintained site.

Will definitely visit again.

 The site and toilets are immaculate and the views from every pitch are awesome.

The Covid precautions in place are reassuring and enhance the quality of your stay.

Good well stocked shop and plenty of well maintained recreational space.

A perfect site!

 Great site. Steep in places if you have mobility problems, but there are level pitches available.

Well stocked shop and reasonable prices. Amazing views.

The showers and toilets were cleaned and maintained to a high standard.

 Stayed several times and love the location and the views are stunning being up on a hillside above Keswick! Pitches for tourers are more or less level although some would be tight to access without a motor mover. Toilets are clean and modern and there is a shop on site.

Site is in a fantastic location for the walks as you would expect and Keswick can be accessed via a walk through the woods with more stunning views or by the road. Be aware it is much harder coming back although reception do have plenty of numbers for taxi firms.

Keswick is lovely for an evening in the pub once most of the day troopers have gone home. We tend to visit the Dog and Gun which, like many other pubs, is dog friendly.

Our only gripe is that like many other sites in the area there seems to be a minimum 3 night stay which makes it impossible for people who work during the week to enjoy a weekend away only being able to stay Friday and Saturday. Other than that excellent.

Reviewer: Cpw1984 3 reviews from this member

 This was our first camping trip as a family (1 year old and 5 year old) and we stayed in one of the camping pods. The facilities were excellent, toilets and showers very clean and a well stocked shop on site. We were even able to take the kids for a bath on site.

The camping pods are a bit on the small side. Once you have the camping beds set up there isn’t too much room for much else (as you’d expect with a 4 berth tent). We managed to fit our beds and camping wardrobe in there and there was a bit of space left to store the chairs in there at night. In terms of keeping us warm and dry, the pod was perfect though. The decking area had just enough shelter to keep dry whilst cooking on our cadac safari chef.

The site is a bit out of Keswick and is up a steep hill so we drove into Keswick most days as we had the little one in a buggy. The views over Derwent Water are amazing though and the site was very quiet and peaceful.

We had a great time and would really recommend the site. We’ve recently bought a bell tent and would love to go back to castlerigg Hall, but the inability to book in advance means that we will probably book elsewhere when we return to Keswick next year.

Reviewer: Trevor + Jo 109 reviews from this member

 Well maintained site with excellent facilities and shop, but you pay for this in the price. The camping field is mostly sloping although there are some flatter areas in places.

This does mean that the tent field is open to campers earlier than the other site in Keswick on the shores of Derwent Water. I got the feeling that the site is set up for caravans and motor homes with the tent field as an added extra.

There are some fantastic views and you can walk to Keswick, but after a day on the fells, possibly too far for a night out! The stone circle and Walla Crag are very close by for an evening walk.

Although the washroom facilities were new and spotless the biggest disappointment was the water temperature in the showers. Warm at best, not what I needed after being outside all day in March.
