 First visit. Superb reception by the friendly staff.

Very clean and wonderfully managed. Soooo clean.

Very happy with my stay and will be back.

I was working leading groups in the hills and then meetings in Keswick.

Short walk into town centre and not far to walk back after a few beers.

 Another great year at Derwentwater. We stay every year for a week and the site was as good as ever.

The facilities are clean and tidy and just about cope with the numbers using them in peak season although there were often queues for the showers.

The location of this site, close to the town, is what makes it perfect for us, and there is so much to do in the surrounding area that we rarely use the car when we are there.

I said this in my review last year but I will say it again to try to stop any disappointment. Because of the name of this site, people often get it mixed up with the site next door which is called the Keswick C&CC site.

Although this site is called Derwentwater, it does not have access to the lake, it is the Keswick site that has lake access. This year another family arrived with their canoes and stand up paddle boards etc thinking that they could launch them directly from the Derwentwater site and they were extremely disappointed to find that they had booked the wrong site and couldnít launch their crafts.

If you want direct lake access for canoeing and paddle boarding etc, you need to book the Keswick C&CC site next door, not this one.

 Great location easy walk to town or the lake.

Facilities immaculate though the showers were a little too hot.

The site is very well maintained in all aspects.

Staff were friendly and helpful.

 Site perfect for us. Easy access to shops/supermarkets etc but also easy access to lots of walks and buses to others areas.

Washrooms immaculate but shower water almost too hot, push button with no temp control. No direct access to lake but only a short walk to it. Very quiet and peaceful with distant views of the hills.

We took the bus to Grasmere - very touristy but with interesting shops. Perfect cafe for tea/cakes-lots to choose from. Hourly on the half hour there from Booths then hourly on the 3/4 hour back. Very scenic route. Flat fare £2 each way until June.

Pitches narrow but long enough to park our car in front of the caravan. Only room for smaller awning without pegging onto the grass. Plenty of room between pitches.

We will gladly come here again if we can get in. The only odd thing is the position of the 2 super pitches

 Another great stay at the best site in the lakes.

Very welcome arrival and a pitch of our choice.

The toilet blocks were immaculately clean.

The site kept impeccably. Despite very cold frosts, yes we had -8C one night the paths were kept gritted.

Best dog friendly town in Britain, come on other towns !

We will be back again and again.

Reviewer: Pixie_Hez 107 reviews from this member

 We stay at this site every year in order to attend the Keswick convention and it is perfectly placed for easy access to the convention centre.

This year the site was as good as ever with clean facilities and friendly wardens.

The fact you can easily walk into town and to the lake is what makes this site perfect for us.

However, please note that this site does not have direct access to the lake, it is the C&CC Keswick site next door that has direct access.

There is not much for kids to do on site as it is really geared up to adults and without a play area, some kids were constantly being told off by the wardens about kicking balls and riding bikes and scooters.

The kids didnít bother us at all but if you have kids, you might prefer the next door Keswick site as it is better set up for kids.

My only complaint about this site is the price. It keeps going up and up and when we booked for next year a few weeks ago we were shocked to see the price per night for next July is £47. 50 for 2 adults!

 Excellent place. The best showers.

Can't miss with this place.

They went out of their way to help me when my power cable did not reach the power pole.

 Lovely peaceful site with excellent facilities and very friendly and welcoming staff.

An easy 10 minute walk into the town centre and down to the lake shore.

 Lovely site within easy walking distance of the bus station and town. Turn right out of the site and a few minutes walk over the field brings you to the shores of Derwentwater.

We love it here as it is within easy reach of the buses and shops.

The site is very clean and well maintained. The toilet block is spotless. It is also very quiet and everyone is very respectful.

One morning we saw a young man pushing his motorcycle to the exit, We asked if he had broken down and did he need help. No, he said, I just donít want to wake anybody up if they are still asleep. It was ten oíclock in the morning.

 Good and ideal place to stay while in staying around that area to explore.

Place was looked after and you could tell the facility was cleaned regularly.
