 Great little campsite, nice and quiet,

The children loved playing in the woods and the walk along the river to Rosthwaite.

Bit of a walk to the shower block but we didn't mind this.

 Stayed at the Woodland Field.

Field is quiet and relaxing, great place wind down and enjoy the great views around.

Walking trails start form the your tent directly.

On the field a toilet clean block with cold water. Hot showers are far away in the farm (550m walk), which is not ideal especially at night.

 I enquired using the form on here and received a quick reply from the site owner letting me know they had space, to just turn up and that it would be £10 for me in my campervan, and that included use of the toilets and showers.

On arrival I went pas the site to the farmhouse to meet the owner and pay my fees. She explained where the facilities were and let me know that I could go anywhere on the main camping field.

As it was very wet I asked if she minded if I camped on the gravel road that runs through the site, she was fine with this although she did assure me the far end of the site would be fine as drainage is very good. She was not wrong, the grass was not too bad considering the rain we had had and I did not get stuck.

The site for campervans is a good size field with gravel road way running through the middle. There are a few fresh water taps on this field. There is another field that is tents only, with no vehicle access and this also houses a couple of pods, fresh water taps, the bins and the toilet block. The shower block is back up the lane toward the farmhouse.

Toilet blocks consist of 2 toilets and urinals in the mens and 4 toilets in the ladies. Both had sinks and there is a washing up attached to this block with fresh water points too. The showers are a block of 4 and they are push button, non directional, however they were very warm and was a great shower after my long walk.

Walking from the site is in abundance with footpaths leading in all directions straight from the site. I walked up Castle Crag that had fantastic views over Borrowdale and Derwent Water. Fairly tough, but a nice circular walk. I also walked into Grange, however not a lot there apart from a tea room, a river and a church!

Close to Keswick, 15 minutes in a car with loads of normal shops, outdoor shops and a large Booths for your food shopping or a Co Op if you want a bit more reasonable prices.

There is so much to see and do in the Lakes and this is perfectly located for Windermere and so much more.

I will be back as at £10 for then night it is a real bargain in an awesome location and 4G on both GiffGaff and Three was very good.

 We did not end up going. We have been many time before and is a beautiful place dog friendly

Two main fields top one more for family's and tents as toilets and washing pots and pans are in that field. Bottom field is for campervans and tents water taps in this field.

Showers are short walk about 2/3 mins away near farm house.

So many beautiful walks from campsite. Kids love it

 The location of this campsite is absolutely stunning, enjoy the walk up to castle Crag or in the local woods.

Right on a lovely river, decent flat field for tents with no marked out pitches. Toilets are OK but have a few cobwebs and tiny sinks.

Short walk up to shower block but great powerful clean showers.

 Setup camp here for our conquering of Scafell Pike via corridor route (had wanted to stop at Seathwaite Farm glad we weren't able after walking through on way up mountain)

Laura (owner) via friendly and accommodating, we even changed our stay to catch better weather.

We camped on the open field, no way you'd get on the Woodland Field with anything but a tent; you can't park next to your tent in the Woodland Field, it is a great location though in trees rugged landscape to behind. River Derwent couple hundred yards away with easy access.

Woodland Field had the toilets and washing up facilities (the standard cold water only) toilets clean and well stocked.

Open Field had flat marked pitchers (think this was a COVID thing) with water points, 3min walk to toilets, no bother to us with portable unit. (no N0. 2s!) Showers 3min in opposite direction at the farm house, again clean, hot, powerful and free!

A few younger families on site which created the usual babble that young children together creates, (we've been often added to that blouse in the past) towards the end of our stay it seemed the location was attracting a few; what I'd refer to as COVID campers (running the car engine to charge the phone, music at the level of volume the whole site can hear etc) not the sites fault at all, but as others have said in busier periods I'd have enjoyed it far less.

Not much in way of food/drink locally, best bet is to drive back into Keswick about 15mins away. Village of Grange did have at least 2 very busy cafés.

 Great scenery amongst the trees and the crags of Borrowdale. The site has large pitches divided with plastic tape. The site owner was friendly and made us welcome upon our arrival.

The toilet block in the tents only field, so it is a short five min walk from the open field to them. The showers are next to the farm and again a five minute walk, but in the other direction. Both blocks were clean and the showers hot. There are lovely walks from the site by the trees and river valley.

Grange village has a couple of cafes, but the Borrowdale Gates hotel bar wasn't open to non residents.

It was very busy due to the school holidays when we were there, and the site was full, so if you want peace and quiet maybe pick a better time. It didn't really bother us though.

 Great site with good facilities. The no electric camping field was a very long walk to get to the loo's washing machines etc.

The main problems we had were not with the site but other campers, who had no idea and did not care about campsite etiquette.

Children playing recorders at 8am, same children singing and dancing around other peoples tents at 10pm.

We left 3 days early, kids, weather and general - just want to go home.

 Lovely location and easy to book. You need to know the width of your van when driving down the single track road and through the gate!

Good hot showers at the farm and very clean, nice toilet block albeit a short walk from the vehicle field.

Will go again for sure because its so rare to have oak woodland, an unspoilt river and crags in view, all in one place.

It's the ideal venue for getting back to nature.

 We have visited this site several times now and enjoyed each visit, beautiful site with a river beside suitable for paddling and swimming.

Lots of walks close by great for us as we travel with 4 dogs, the dogs are welcome on the site and there is no charge.

We tried the left side field this time, advantage is cars parked beside the tent, disadvantage farther away from the toilets, but closer to showers. Owners and staff very friendly.

We will definitely be returning again :)

The price at £7 per adult is great and they didn't get charged extra for our 7. 5 metre tent even though it was August and school holidays.
