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).

Worth Noting

We have just returned from a wonderful 7 night stay on this lovely site.

This review is for Derwentwater

We have just returned from a wonderful 7 night stay on this lovely site. It is well run and beautifully kept, with immaculately clean facilities. It is a small site and is very sheltered, being surrounded by trees and hedges, while still enjoying great views of the surrounding fells. Derwentwater site is perfectly situated for enjoying all that Keswick has to offer. The town centre shops, bus station and lake are a few minutes walk away. Pitches are level and of a generous size. The wardens are friendly, efficient and helpful without being intrusive. This was our first stay on this site and will be our first choice for caravan holidays in the Northern Lakes from now on.

This site is wonderful.

This review is for Derwentwater

This site is wonderful. Excellent location 5 mins walk from Keswick which has some lovely individual shops and eateries. The site is run by very friendly and helpful managers and kept spotlessly clean and tidy. The facilities are top notch and cleaned daily. The surrounding area is great for walking and while we were staying there we were lucky to have good weather and managed some long days out on the hill. A small peaceful and very friendly site. Cant wait to return next year. hill.
