Derwentwater Camping & Caravanning Club site located between Skiddaw and Derwentwater in the North of the Lake District, is also close to the market town of Keswick. It is 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. The National Trust’s Crow Park and Hope Park are close to the site, the latter offers crazy golf and a putting course. The site has 55 hardstanding pitches, some serviced. The site also has 9 safari tents available for hire.
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.
Head to the Keswick launch and hop on board a cruise boat for a 50 minute tour of the lake or hop off at one of the seven lakeshore jetties. The Cumberland Pencil Museum, Keswick Brewing Company and the Theatre by the Lake are all worth visiting. Walkers have the option of low level walking around Derwentwater’s shores or if you want more of a challenge Skiddaw, Helvellyn, Striding Edge and Blencathra are nearby.
