Coalbeck Caravan Park

General

  • Quiet and secluded site with spectacular views of the Lake District
  • Five-minute drive from Bassenthwaite Lake; 15 to Keswick, Cockermouth
  • Spa next door; five minutes' walk to the Lake District Wildlife Park

Could trips to Cumbria get any more spectacular than at this serene site...? Answers on a postcard please to Coalbeck Caravan Park... in a central setting for touring the Lake District and nearby coastline, this haven has views of the region’s woods, fields and hills from its spacious grounds.

Getting you to linger a little longer before heading out for explores, the spacious pitches at Coalbeck Caravan Park are prime for spotting creatures like rare red squirrels among the pretty planters, and are a suntrap when the rays come out too. But if rain’s threatening? A spa next door to the site means you can book in for a treatment (or three…?).

Back outdoors, the site’s a five-minute drive from Bassenthwaite Lake – one of the only bodies of water in the region with no settlements around it – so it’s got a peaceful vibe yet is close enough to many of the main sights in the northern part of the lakes. Case in point: it’s around a 15-minute drive from historic towns like Keswick and Cockermouth and about a half an hour to the coast.

If you’re looking for leisure without having to get behind the wheel Lake District Wildlife Park’s 24 acres of land home to more than 100 animals is a five-minute walk away. You’ll also need to ditch the car to visit The Lakes Distillery: this artisan gin, whiskey and vodka producing place a 25-minute stroll from the park has tastings, tours and a small shop where you can wander off with some of its wares...

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

    The site was very clean. Lots of room for the motor home and grassed area for dining out in. Liz and Sid were extremely friendly and helpful. A 2 mile walk to a great country pub called The Pheasant. Close to Lake Bassenthwaite and lovely walks through the forest. Clean toilets and showering facilities and separate washing up area. Just far enough outside Keswick to not be too busy. Dog friendly. Can highly recommend.

Local attractions

For ambles around art galleries and wanders in Wordsworth House and Garden, Keswick is eight miles away. Cockermouth on the other hand, about the same distance to the south east, is just the place for meandering through medieval and Georgian alleyways under castle walls.

Or for classic Lake District outdoorsy options instead, Derwentwater's walking and cycling circuit (set aside about half a day to complete if strolling) takes half an hour to reach in the car.

To break up traipsing around the tarns inland, Solway Coast Area of Natural Beauty is 40 minutes by car, while underground explores at Honister Slate Mine in Borrowdale are 45 minutes away.

If you fancy staying above ground and sauntering southwards, Lake Ullswater steamer cruises are also 45 minutes from the park and Lake Windermere is where to waterski (an hour and five minutes away from Coalbeck Caravan Park). To scale one of the region’s highest peaks, Scafell Pike takes an hour and 15 minutes to reach.
