Alan Rogers Review
Braithwaite Village Camping and Caravanning Club in the heart of the beautiful Lake District is an outstanding site offering facilities to suit all needs and tastes. Located within the Lake District's National Park near the beautiful market town of Keswick, Braithwaite Village is ideally situated between Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite Lake. Braithwaite Village is nestled in the impressive backdrop of the Coledale Horseshoe and enjoys dramatic views towards Skiddaw and the Northern Fells. Whinlatter Forest has superb mountain bike trails, walking and impressive children's adventure playgrounds and Go Ape! high ropes course. The site is located at the foot of the Whinlatter Pass, making Braithwaite Village the perfect base for exploring the northern Lake District. The site has 150 grass or hardstanding pitches.
N.B. Non-members are welcome and may join on site. Please speak to site staff for details and to check pitch availability before arrival.
Braithwaite Village site is set in the village of its name sake and is a few minutes’ drive from the market town of Keswick. The town can also be reached by bike within 20 minutes – there is a four-mile cycle route from the village centre heading east to Keswick that takes in Swinside Fell. Plenty of walks can also be enjoyed locally too, such as the circular Newlands Valley route.
