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).

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Worth Noting

Minimum booking for stays may apply – please look online for information. No accessibility for launching canoes/kayaks onto Derwentwater. Keswick site, just a few minutes away, offers a true lakeside setting. Some pitches may require a 25m electric cable. When arriving at site, drive past the lane to Lakeside Holiday homes and we are the next gate on the right.

A farmers' market is held in Keswick on Thursdays and Saturdays.

WOW, what an experience, second to none.

This review is for Derwentwater

WOW, what an experience, second to none. We normally take our tent, however due to my physical issues used the Ready Camp tent this time. Julian and Sheila were above and beyond whatever you would expect from hosts. Sheila sourced a mobility scooter for me when I found I could not walk using her own time. That made my holiday so special. Both Julian and Sheila always made time to talk and with a calm and obviously interested attitude. Brilliant.

The staff have obviously put a great deal of hard work into making this a lovely site to stay on. It is spotlessly clean and we�ll maintained.The flowers are lovely upon entry and it is a very peaceful site despite being only 5 minutes away from the town. A complete joy to stay on
