Castlerigg Farm Camping and Caravan Site is a superb family run site, with modern facilities for the discerning camper.
Situated in a quiet area on the edge of Keswick, Castlerigg Farm Campsite is found half way up Walla Crag, with exceptional panoramic views of the surrounding fells.
The site itself looks down towards Derwentwater and in the distance Bassenthwaite Lake. The sunsets can be amazing.
Keswick town centre is approximately a 25 minute walk down through the woods or a 5 minute drive by car. Keswick is a busy market town with its shops, pubs, tea shops and restaurants.
