Award winning, friendly park only 1.5 miles away from Keswick Town centre. Set in an elevated position in a scenic area just outside Keswick, Castlerigg Hall enjoys exceptional panoramic views of Derwentwater & Bassenthwaite Lake set against a dramatic backdrop of the surrounding fells.
With caravans for hire and areas for touring caravans, motorhomes, camping and camping pods, Castlerigg Hall is the perfect Lake District camping & caravan park.
There's a lovely heated campers' kitchen with twin hobs and a microwave (50p tokens needed), free use of toasters and a kettle, ice pack freezing, free WiFi, and a sun terrace. The toilets, showers and bathroom have underfloor heating.
Castlerigg Hall occupies a superb position in the heart of magnificent Lakeland countryside. Numerous scenic walks from the Park present breathtaking views, while just nearby is the fascinating Castlerigg Stone Circle, thought to date back some 4000 years.
Climbing, golf, pony trekking, fishing and all kinds of watersports are available close by, while for the less energetic Keswick has a variety of museums, leisure pool, theatre, cinema, relaxing parks and gardens and a wealth of interesting shops. There is also a wide variety of restaurants, inns and cafes in Keswick and the surrounding villages where you can sample such specialities as Cumberland sausage, Windermere char, Borrowdale tea bread and Grasmere gingerbread.

Another lovely visit to this first class site. Although we were running late due to Friday night traffic the team waited for us and even offered helped to position the caravan. The wash facilities are a firm favourite with the family - highly recommend

We are new to touring and decided to stay at Castlerigg Hall C & C Park after spending a week in one of their statics a few years ago. Based on our previous stay we knew to expect a warm, friendly welcome and some spectacular views.
We noticed various improvements since our last visit including a WIFI zone in the Camper's Kitchen (which also has food preparation and dish washing facilities) and an on site restautrant serving breakfast and evening meals (including a dedicated pizza night). Other facilities include a laundry room, a well stocked shop and a recreation field providing ample space for children to play. The pitches are well spaced & many are fully serviced with their own water supply and waste point. The toilets and showers are well maintained and spotlessly clean. There's even a private bathroom available at a cost of £2.50 for 30 minutes.
There's a s bus stop a short walk from the site on the A591 with buses into Keswick and beyond including Windermere, Grasmere and Kendal. Alternatively, the centre of Keswick is just a 25 minute walk away. In Keswick you'll find an abundance of pubs, cafes & shops. Many of the pubs serve excellent food and local real ale. Our personal favourites are The Dog & Gun, Lake Road and The Bank Tavern, Main Street. Booths is the main supermarket located right by the main bus stop - they place much emphasis on stocking local produce and a wide range of bottled beers from around the country.
If you're feeling energetic you could try one of the many walks that start from the campsite. The climb up Walla Crag provides a stunning panaramic view of Keswick and Derwent Water or you could take a more leisrely stroll around the Lake itself. We did both and can't wait to return to discover more of what Keswick and the surrounding area has to offer.
