Castlerigg Hall Caravan & Camping Park is a well laid out park that was started in the late 1950s by the Jackson family, who over the years have developed and improved the site whilst maintaining its character. Good use has been made of the traditional stone buildings to house the reception and shop, whilst another building houses a modern amenity block along with a really excellent campers’ kitchen. Gently sloping with some shelter, the 120 pitches have fine views across Keswick, Derwentwater and the western Fells. Each terrace has a maximum of eight pitches with 10/16A electricity and almost all with water and drainage. The 65 hardstanding pitches, 52 of which are fully serviced, overlook the lake.
Places to visit include Keswick (about 20 minutes walk), Derwentwater, Ullswater, Penrith, Carlisle, Hadrian’s Wall, Rhegad (the village in the hill) and, quite close to the site, Castlerigg stone circle which is believed to be some 4,000 years old, and of course as much walking as you might want. The Jacksons are committed to conservation.
