Alan Rogers Review

Borrowdale Caravan and Motorhome Club site is a delight to the eye with the lovely fells soaring up and wild flowers in bloom everywhere. Located about 5 miles from Keswick and set in National Trust woodland, the site offers numerous walking paths to explore the beautiful northern Lakes area. It doesn't have to be strenuous - forest trails, nature trails, guided walks and farm walks leave you spoilt for choice. There is a convenient bus service that runs from the site. The site has 59 hardstanding pitches all with 16 amp electricity.

If the Lakes themselves are the main attraction on your holiday break, Borrowdale Motorhome & Caravan Club site puts you within easy reach of Derwentwater, popular for its boats and vibrant marina, not to mention its range of pubs and restaurants. Bassenthwaite Water is also a short distance away from the site and merits exploration for its Sailing Club. If more tranquil surroundings are what you're after, the charming waters of Buttermere and Crummock Water would be just the ticket. The lovely local scenery also includes the dramatic hills of Castle Crag and Cats Bells. The hamlet of Grange, with a tea shop on the picturesque banks of the river is only a short walk away and local pubs & restaurants are within easy reach of the site.

N.B. Non-members may join on site and make a substantial saving on pitch fees, please speak to site staff for more details and to check pitch availability before arrival.

Please note: This site does not have a toilet block.

Location

Please only use these recommended directions for the final approach and not sat nav, due to alternative routes being unsuitable for towing. Leave M6 at junction 40 onto the A66 (Keswick). On the outskirts of Keswick keep right onto the bypass (signposted Cockermouth A66). Within 1.5 miles at the roundabout turn left (signposted A5271 Keswick, Borrowdale B5289). At the T-junction turn left; and at mini roundabout turn right and follow signposts onto the B5289. In about 4.25 miles (about 0.5 mile past Borrowdale Hotel) turn right over the bridge (care required) into the road signposted Grange, Newlands (note width restriction warning sign). The site is on the right in 1 mile. Please note: when towing, do not approach or leave site along the west side of Derwentwater. Also, before turning right off the B5289 at Grange, check that bridge (takes all caravans) is clear. Care needed through Grange village, on double hump back bridge and on final approach (narrow) and turning into site.
