Keswick is a two-minute walk from this site with water-based activities on Derwentwater.

Our lovely little Derwentwater Club campsite is nestled between Skiddaw and Derwentwater in the north of the Lake District and is enticingly close to the pretty market town of Keswick. In fact, pull on your walking boots and you’ll be in the centre in just minutes. It’s easy to see why Keswick is the major centre for tourism in the region with its many varied shops, restaurants and museums, not to mention the lure of water and the hills.

Our Derwentwater campsite has recently been full refurbished to the high standards you would expect from a Club site, whilst maintaining its peaceful ambience. The National Trust’s Crow Park and Hope Park are close to the campsite. The latter offers crazy golf and a putting course. Enjoy low level walking around Derwentwater’s shores or if you want more of a challenge Skiddaw, Helvellyn and Striding Edge and Blencathra are close by.p>

Head to the Keswick launch and hop on board a cruise boat for a 50 minute tour of the lake or jump off at one of the seven lakeshore jetties.

Back in Keswick the Cumberland Pencil Museum, the Keswick Brewing Company and the Theatre by the Lake are all worth visiting.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

easy to get to large enough for most and just the right size if you prefer a bit of piece and quiet. a short walk from the town 5 minutes tops, and bang in the middle of the lake district. wonderful just wonderful.

One of the best club sites we have stayed on.

This review is for Derwentwater

One of the best club sites we have stayed on. However, trees planted in the centre island area put half of the site into perpetual shade and the friendly site managers spend a lot of time moving units from the shaded area onto a lighter pitch as soon as one becomes available. The removal of just a few trees would make such a huge difference to the attractiveness of the site as a whole.

This review is for Derwentwater

The staff here work so hard keeping the site well maintained & though the facilities may not be as luxurious as on bigger sites they are always clean & well maintained. When in the area it is well worth getting a ticket from reception for a trip on the lake. There are plenty of good places to eat & drink in Keswick & personally I would recommend the pack horse in for quality food & good selection of beers including 6 cask ales. If you fancy a treat keep a look out for sweet treats in Keswick which is an old fashioned sweet shop selling things I haven't seen since I was a child. I would recommend this site to anyone that wants to be out exploring or just wants to sit in peace & quiet to relax.

The welcome to the site was great and all the Staff were very helpful indeed.

This review is for Derwentwater

The welcome to the site was great and all the Staff were very helpful indeed. The site is ideal for walking in the Lakes. The Bus terminus is close by for those who wish to travel further into the Lakes for their walks. It is only a short walk into the Town for anything you require. There is a nice cafe just opposite the site entrance (in the new block of flats) the food is good and the Sunday lunch well worth it. The access is a bit steep but you can access the Block from the main entrance to the flats. The site is in need of some TLC which we understand is on the cards hopefully sooner rather than later.
