Keswick is a two-minute walk from this site with water-based activities on Derwentwater.

Our lovely little Derwentwater Club campsite is nestled between Skiddaw and Derwentwater in the north of the Lake District and is enticingly close to the pretty market town of Keswick. In fact, pull on your walking boots and you’ll be in the centre in just minutes. It’s 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.

Our Derwentwater campsite has recently been full refurbished to the high standards you would expect from a Club site, whilst maintaining its peaceful ambience. The National Trust’s Crow Park and Hope Park are close to the campsite. The latter offers crazy golf and a putting course. Enjoy low level walking around Derwentwater’s shores or if you want more of a challenge Skiddaw, Helvellyn and Striding Edge and Blencathra are close by.p>

Head to the Keswick launch and hop on board a cruise boat for a 50 minute tour of the lake or jump off at one of the seven lakeshore jetties.

Back in Keswick the Cumberland Pencil Museum, the Keswick Brewing Company and the Theatre by the Lake are all worth visiting.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

Close to town and lake. Car was not used for 5 days due to closeness of town and lake.

This review is for Derwentwater

Close to town and lake. Car was not used for 5 days due to closeness of town and lake. Bought a selection of Lakeland leisure walks �2.50 local shop and spent 3 separate days putting them to the test! One tired dog but what amazing views! Shower and toilet facilities immaculate. Lots of places to eat in town centre. Everywhere dog friendly. Site small, quiet and welcoming. Booked another visit before we left. We loved it!

This review is for Derwentwater

We enjoyed our stay at Derwentwater Oval site very much, Keswick has a lovely holiday atmosphere and is so welcoming to walkers and their dogs! Great for walking from the site, we caught the bus to Seatoller and walked the 10 miles back to the site it was beautiful! Another favourite of ours is the Catbells walk we caught the launch back to Keswick which is always a treat. The great thing about the site is that it is so central, you don't have to use the car, great for the bus too. We found the site very peaceful, great for couples. The wardens are so enthusiastic and the keep the toilets and showers so clean. A lovely holiday we will certainly visit again!
