We have just had two nights there on the way home from Scotland. We roll up at Keswick CCC site, "can we have a pitch please mister". "We're full", in a very friendly way, "try The Oval". The oval is an overflow site 100 yards away. So again, "can we have a pitch". "Will a bsic field pitch do ?" "Yes of course". So she went on to apologise for lack of facilities, just two portakabin toilet blocks ( to be improved ). Showed us to a big flat, dry field and charged us £23 for two nights. It was a delight, almost totally silent, save for the sound of copulating rabbits. A short walk to town and a short walk to the lake. Keswick is a typical lakes town, 10,000 hiking shops, super markets and restaurants. And of course, The Pencil Museum. Nice neighbours. One guy, a Norman Wisdom lookalike, said he'd been a member for 44 years. So highly recommended but may be worth phoning first.
