 After our booking at Keswick CCC was cancelled due to flooding, a quick scramble to find another site at short notice found us heading to castlerigg hall. And we were not disappointed

Pitch 22 saw us overlooking the Derwent and the fells, large gravel pitch EHU water and grey waste.

Site is immaculate, check in was seem less and a member of staff showed us to our pitch.

Reasonably sized site, immaculately kept, 2 shower blocks on site, Elsan and motorhome waste point. Also has a small shop and a pizza van visits a few times a week.

2 toilet blocks are immaculate 3 large shower units 3 toilets, 3 sinks and always a fresh mop bucket and mop available to clean the showers after use.

Castlerigg sit above Keswick with a short walk through the site down hill into the town, around 20 mins or a 30 min walk by road. Be warned the walk back is steep in places.

Site is well situated for many walks and a lovely trek over to castlerigg stone circle is worth the effort

Overall a great site, not cheap but worth it

 Nothing to dislike.

Lovely well laid out spacious site with multiple choices of pitches at differing prices.

You pays your money and takes your choice. We chose a tiny pitch to suit our small campervan. We couldn't see another unit but had a superb view all for £27.

Lovely staff with the right attitude.

 A well kept, quiet site.

Parts of the site are terraced. Many pitches have fell top views.

The facilities were clean and well maintained.

Several walk from the site through woods, down to lake, to Stone circle or Walla Crag.

Short drive or can walk (uphill coming back)to Keswick where there are shops restaurants etc.

 This was our second time at castlergg & it doesn't disappoint the view is fantastic.

Toilet and showers are spotless well stocked shop,

20 minute off road walk in to Keswick but it is steep the bus back stops at the end of the lane if you can't make it.

Excellent base for walking in the lakes.

 A very well organised and clean tidy campsite with good facilities and level pitches. Thereís an on site reception and shop that sells the basics.

A 40 minute walk into Keswick where there are plenty of cafes pubs, outdoor shops, a Booths supermarket and the famous Pencil Museum!

I chose this campsite because I was the organiser for a group of friends who donít have a campervan like me so they were able to stay on this campsite in the camping Ďpodsí.

This site is ideally situated for walking straight from your accommodation - we walked to castlerigg Stone Circle, Ashness Bridge and walked down to the ferry to cross the Lake and walked Catbells.

The views from the campsite of the lake and surrounding mountains are beautiful.

Altogether a great campsite and I will definitely return again!

 This has to be one of the best sites I have stayed on!

The showers and toilets were lovely, clean and very spacious.

The extra touches - campers kitchen, campers lounge, doggy showers all added to it being an excellent site.

The site shop stocked everything you could need along with quirky little gifts and local produce. Above all though the views were outstanding.

Only wish we had been able to stay longer to explore area more as our stay was to visit nearby family.

 Wonderful site with great views of Derwentwater.

Facilities are excellent, showers were well above average with heat control on the water and plenty of room to get dried. Facilities block were warm and very clean.

Well stocked shop with camping sundries as well as local beers and gifts to remember your visit.

There are excellent cooking and relaxing facilities for campers or caravanners getting cabin fever if the weather isn't so good.

Food is available on site from Taco Chateau and Magic Mountain Pizza, you need to order beforehand from the latter, but both were top notch.

There are lovely walks from the site. Heading back down the approach road there is a path just after the Heights which goes through the site and takes you into Keswick, but be aware it is very narrow in places so be careful if you have a reactive dog.

Staff were really on the ball and had all our details ready, the barrier works on number plate recognition which is great if its raining.

The only issue I can find was that the drain on the service pitch was raised so it was a bit awkward getting the hose in but I did get it sorted.

Overall this was one if the best trips we have had, well done castlerigg Hall!

 We absolutely loved this site. Stunning views - we saw a fabulous thunder storm from the caravan over derwentwater.

Great location just out of Keswick so nice and quiet but able to walk down to town on footpaths and get the bus back up the hill from outside Booths every half hour!

Food vans every night if you were feeling too lazy to cook. Great shop and friendly staff. Great dog walks in every direction from the door. Fab shower block, warm, modern and music playing!

Access from the main road was good, not too tight - my husband said it was one of his easiest to tow the caravan into from the main road! Water and grey waste as standard on pitch.

Only slight downsides were; pitches slightly tight to get the caravan into and we felt quite close our neighbours.

We had a standard pitch as booked late. Some of the pitches were spectacular but another regular said they book up fast and I can see why.

Site advertised Wifi but we couldnít make this work anywhere on site. This didnít really matter to us but my son was a little disappointed!

There was a big field in the middle for kids to play games, had the best views but it was very slopey so not the easiest ball games weíve ever played! But I didnít want to leave here and we will definitely be back.

 Pick your pitch carefully. Whilst the staff, facilities and location are hard to beat the pitches vary greatly.

Although we only have a small Eriba caravan our pitch was extremely tight and whilst many pitches have great views ours didn't.

With high rainfall in the Lake District It makes sense to have hard standing but it would have been nice to have had some grass to sit out on.

Looking at the back of another caravan we felt we were in a car park. Not all pitches are like this so study the pitch plan before you book.
