Enjoy great views and easy access to Keswick and Derwentwater from this site.

Our lovely Troutbeck Club campsite is the perfect base for exploring the Lake District. Its idyllic location surrounded by countryside and with fantastic views of the fells is a walkers’ paradise.

Blencathra and Sharp Edge are easily accessed from the campsite. Less strenuous is the half hour walk to the White Horse pub in Scales. The Coast2Coast cycle way passes by the campsite. Another popular mountain bike route is the Old Coach Road which has splendid views of Blencathra and Skiddaw in parts.

After a day on the hill our campsite offers a peaceful place to relax and soak up the views. Pitches are spacious and toilet and shower facilities are top notch. And there’s a laundry and disabled room too. Children have a small play area and there is ample room to exercise your dog on site. The campsite shop sells local free-range eggs, meat and real ales.

Rookin House Farm Equestrian and Activity Centre in Troutbeck offers horse riding, archery, quad bikes and karting. Ullswater, south of the campsite has numerous sandy beaches. Sailing, canoeing, kayaking and windsurfing are all possible here, and fishing for those with the appropriate rod licence.

This review is for Troutbeck

We've been to Troutbeck several times now, it's easy to get to just off A66 and a convenient base for touring the Lakes - easy to get to Keswick, Ullswater, Rheged and any number of walks. The views of Blencathra are stunning. Site is always clean, the shop sells basics and local products and a small selection of beers and wine. It's a little distance to walk to a pub across the busy A66 in Scales but there's plenty of choice within a short drive. Our only sadness is that the farmer has apparently stopped access to the designated dog walk so there is nowhere to walk your dog for a quick morning/evening outing apart from down the road. Apparently people were letting their dogs off leads in the livestock fields thus having spoilt it for all of us! It would have been helpful for the site manager to have advised us when we arrived or even checked out if we had a dog. Sadly it will probably affect our decision to return for anything longer than a couple of nights as our dog is not good on roads even quiet ones.

This review is for Troutbeck

Have visited Troutbeck for many years progressing from a tent to caravan to finally a motorhome. The toilet facilities are excellent apart from the location which is at the top of the site so a long trek from the tent field. The shop / reception carries stock of most basic requirements if you forget any essentials. I have always enjoyed this site as it is small, quite secluded and near Penrith and Keswick. Sadly I believe the site is being neglected and needs some TLC to bring it up to standard. I now take my grandson with me on occasions but the play area Is totally inadequate and in a poor state of repair. The bark laid around the play area is muddy and waterlogged. This was my first visit this year and I expected a level of maintenance work to have been carried out over the close season but nothing seems to have been done. The exit barrier is still broken and just laid on the ground. The roadways are still waterlogged and need holes etc filling in. The hard standings are slowly being take over by grass encrouching onto them, plot number signs broken and laid on the ground, generally the place looks untidy and neglected. It begs the question about investment and the standards of a C&CC club site. I for one don't think it meets what I expect from a club site and wouldn't recommend any friends visiting until some remedial work is carried out to the items I have noted. I won't be returning and will visit an alternative site in the lakes.

“We had a lovely time for 2 weeks in the Self Catering 6 berth Caravan. Its a beautiful van with central heating. That was a good thing as the area was covered in snow when we came up from Cornwall for our Easter holidays. This our 5th visit to Troutbeck. We visited first with a tent as a couple. We now bring our 2 small children and other family members. We will book again for next year. We will need the Static caravan and our own tourer as each time we come more family want to join us.The site and the owners and staff are all Fab.”
