    Is there any reasonably good places to stay near Cockermouth Cumbria in order to attend Woolfest festival at the end of June 27/28.

    Hi Ann & Harry, There are quite a few caravan club cl sites around and a few ccc sites. There is a face book page for the festival you could try asking on there as there are lots of other things going on in the area. We stayed in Workington as we have family there but the ccc site was to noisy to recomend.

    Thanks for the replies I have now had a look at the Facebook page and am awaiting reply from them about the other things that are going on at night as well.
    Ann is looking into the Silloth on the Solway.
    We have never stopped anywhere near there as yet and are looking forward to something new.
    Kindest regards
    Ann & Harry

    Hi A&H, just my personal opinion but Silloth is a bit tired these days and a bit out of the way.There’s a couple of big sites there with good facilities ( swimming pool, bars and bowling ) but not much in the town. I think you’d struggle getting a decent bus service too.
    Scotgate campsite at Braithwaite just outside Keswick is a nice site with a smashing toilet block and fantastic views. The bus stops not far from the site and you’re beside the A66, straight run to Cockermouth. There are a couple of nice pubs in the village too. Keswick and Portinscale are accessible on foot. There is also a big layby just before Braithwaite where we have parked our van through the day and have seen others overnighting but don’t know what that involves.
    Graeme.
