Newlands Valley Campsite: Peaceful sunny day

General

  • Well-maintained Lake District site half a kilometre from Derwentwater
  • A five-minute drive from Catbells; 15 minutes from Whinlatter Forest
  • Pub with a beer garden a short walk away; adventure centre nearby

Mountain biking, high ropes, quad biking and boating… whatever your calling, you’ll be well placed for mucking into all sorts of outdoor activities from Newlands Valley Campsite in the Lake District National Park. Half a kilometre from Derwentwater and 10 minutes’ drive away from Keswick, this family-run pop-up site will plant you firmly near to fells, lakes and forests.

You’ll be able to channel your energy into the outdoors from here, as there’s an activity centre five minutes’ drive away (climbing, archery and kayaking included). The nearest fell is five minutes’ drive away for a challenging hike and there are more trails including mountain biking or cycling courses around Whinlatter Forest Park, 15 minutes’ drive away.

When you’re ready to give your feet a rest and refill with some tasty food, the local pub is 10 minutes’ walk away up the hill – it’s quite the cosy spot with a beer garden so you can stay in the fresh air if you please while you indulge in a homecooked meal.

As a pop-up site, the facilities on site simply take care of the essentials – as you’ll likely be a little mucky from your adventures out and about, there are showers, toilets and clean water where you can freshen up.

Please note

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

    We couldn't ask for better place to stay. Weather was fantastic. After just one night we changed our 3 night stay and add one more night! It still wasn't enough to do all we wanted and see everything what this beautiful place offers. The owners are amazing and friendly people. They worked hard to keep site clean and tidy!Fantastic hot showers after all day activities were very relaxing. Next year we promised ourselves to stay for full week! We would like to say a big thank you for such a lovely time we spent at Newlands Valley Campsite!

    The family who ran the site were fantastic, helpful and friendly. The location was perfect and our girls spent a lot of time fishing in the stream and visiting the ice cream van. The showers were lovely and hot.

    Disliked: 

    The toilets were lovely and clean but they did have a slight ammonia smell due to the tank in use. This couldn’t be helped and staff were noticeably cleaning the facilities throughout the day.

From the manager...

Hi!

Thankyou for your feedback it really helps!

The heat didn't help the toilets but we made sure we cleaned them regularly as you must have seen! ❤️

We hope to see you again soon!

Hi Jack,

Thanks for your review.

We had 3 toilet blocks and 1 shower unit, which adds up to 4 in total which were all in a row at the front of the site? They were bright white?

Many Thanks

Directions

Local attractions

Those of you who are ready and willing to get a little mucky (go on – you’re on holiday) might want to get started with some quad biking or Segwaying 10 minutes’ walk from the site. You’ve got a few ways to get stuck in at Whinlatter Forest Park (15 minutes' drive) – aside from hiking, cycling and mountain biking, there are zipwires and treetop obstacles to tackle on the Go Ape course.

That’s not all in the way of outdoorsy pursuits. The local adventure centre (five minutes) runs kayaking and canoeing, scrambling, rock climbing, archery and another high ropes course. If you like a challenge, Catbells (five minutes) is a fell with a six-kilometre hike.

Otherwise, take a more leisurely route (or a boat, if you want to rest your feet) around Derwentwater (10 minutes’ walk). Aira Force Waterfall (half an hour’s drive) has more spectacular water scenery.

For more of those chilled-out activities, be sure to call by the Lake District Wildlife Park (20 minutes) and Castlerigg Stone Circle (15 minutes), a Neolithic stone circle.

Must see

  • Whinlatter Forest & Visitor Centre (2.1 miles)
  • Castlerigg Stone Circle (3.1 miles)
  • Mirehouse Historic House and Gardens (4.3 miles)

National Trust

  • Wordsworth House and Garden (9.8 miles)
  • Grasmere and Great Langdale (11.6 miles)
