Reviews of Castlerigg Farm Camping & Caravan Site

As I write this review I'm sitting in the entrance to my tent looking at the magnificent panoramic views which surround this site. To my left is Walla Crag which is shrouded in mist, to the front of me is Derwent Water with Catbells behind. To my right, in the distance, I can see Bassenthwaite Lake and looking further right I can see Latrigg and Skiddaw. Moving clockwise I can see the Blencathra range of mountains and behind me is the Helvellyn range of mountains, this uninterrupted views must be one of the best if not the best in the area. The cloud is low today but the effect is dramatic, what a wonderful place to relax.

This site has to be up there in our top 5 sites and as seasoned campers we have stayed on a lot of camp sites all ove the Lake District. The facilities are clean and tidy and include showers, toilets laundry and shop. The Hayloft cafe provides a very good breakfast and we have thoroughly enjoyed the meals in the evening sitting beside their lovely wood burning stove. There are 2 fields and both have tents in them but one field also seems to have pitches for caravans and motor homes. The site is easy to find and the closest main road, the A591 is about 1/2 mile away so there is no noise of passing traffic.

On arrival the staff point out they require silence from 10.30pm which is right up our street and one of the reasons why we decided to visit this site. Its worth pointing out there are 2 sites on this lane and Castlerigg Farm is the second site on the LEFT, not to be confused with the much bigger caravan park across the lane.

Keswick town centre is a pleasant walk down through the woods and it takes about 25 min to walk in to the town centre. Its also about a 25 min walk to the ancient monument the Castlerigg Stone Circle. We've been here 4 days and have so far not needed to use the car as there are plenty of walks directly from the site. A top class site which we can see ourselves returning to again and again.
