    What are the chances of getting on this site on spec 7-9 may. Not members and not been here for a while but remember it being very popular, worth a chance or no chance as its weekend after bank hols ???

    Currently showing grass pitches available, with or without electricity, for that weekend, but no hardstandings.

    If you don't want to commit, it's always worth phoning on the day, but given the popularity, I don't think I'd risk just turning up.

    BTW, minimum booking period for Keswick is 3 nights, except for the non-electric pitches which is two.

    We are going up to Keswick for a few nights tomorrow, will drive over and have a look at the cc site might be a handy stop-over.

    We spent ages trying to book a grass pitch shown as available.. to no avail.

    After phoning it appears that motorhomes are not allowed on the grass pitches because of flood possibility and wet ground.. this seems to be a permanent rule now.. :Sad:

    We much prefer the Walker Park C&CC site at Keswick. Its just further down the lane than the main Keswick site - only difference being that its not on the lake shore. Also there's no electric, but if you are only going for the weekend that shouldnt be a problem.

    As its not on the lake, it also tends to be much less busy - hence why we prefer it. Just a nice walk into Keswick - fab!

    Just checked, and there are still pitches available for that weekend.

    Enjoy - lucky you!! :thumb:

    We are booked there 20th to 23rd April and hoping for a dry period, though we have heard it is going to be cold. As long as it is dry that will be fine.

    Walker Park still has the same views - just without being on the lakeside.

    Its basically just a big field of grass - pitches are around the edge. nly drawback (if you can call it that) is no electric. Also theres no waste disposal point - you use the main site for that. There is fresh water point though.

    Much, much quieter than the main site. Excellent. Cant wait to go back. :Smile:

    At the Keswick site it shows grass pitch under 26 foot available, but it won't let me go further

    It may be easier to ring the site direct

    We have stayed at Castlerigg Farm on occasion,certainly up the hill a bit but a nice spot.
    Facilities basic but clean and the added bonus of a really nice eaterie on site.
    Next door is Castlerigg Hall site, took a walk round and it looked nice with shop etc, walk from both to town centre probably about twenty minutes.

    Sorry just had a look at Castlerigg Farm website, toilets etc. have obviously had a major upgrade since our last visit - would recommend even more now.

    Thanks for that, yes we have stayed on Castlerig hall last year however daughter who is nearly 18 "does not do walking up hills" or down em even if there are handbag shops and the promise of pizza awaiting. Probably wont have much choice other than scotgate which is a flatter walk but futrther (its the one at braithwaite) never stayed there but the reviews seem ok. Anyone been to scotgate ???

    Two daughters of my own, don't quite know what happens when they reach a certain age legs seem to only work if they are surrounded by racks of clothes etc. then they can go all day.
    Show them some grass and heaven forbid a hill and thats it, legs don't work.:BigGrin:
