Caldbeck Camping: Woolly visitors

General

  • Quiet site on the outskirts of the Lake District National Park
  • Right on the Cumbria Way at the edge of a forest and Caldbeck village
  • Carlisle, Penrith and Keswick all within 35 minutes’ drive

On the edge of the northern fells in the Lake District National Park, skirting a handily placed village and sitting on the Cumbria Way, it’s fair to say Caldbeck Camping is in a cracking location. In fact, this site makes a rather ace base for explores whether you’re planning on surveying the sights from a car or tackling hilly terrain on two feet.

But back to the local area first: the park’s on the edges of Caldbeck, a settlement with a small shop and a post office as well as a pub and two cafés, and is also five minutes’ drive to Hesket Newmarket’s Cumbrian ale brewery. After a bit of harder liquor? If you don’t mind travelling for 35 minutes in the car you can soon be at the Lakes Distillery for tours and tastings.

Manage to keep the booze to a minimum and walks can be had on the Cumbria Way straight from site, eventually leading to the famed Lake District towns of Coniston (an hour and 15-minute drive or a rather long wander...) and Keswick (35 minutes’ drive).

Of course, you can pick and choose the parts of the path you want to ply, scaling the peaks of the Langdale and Borrowdale valleys for views over the lush landscape. Guests who’d rather roam closer to home, meanwhile, can set off into the forest straight from the site to have a leafy lope about, pick a streamside spot for some fishing or stick about by their pitch to set up for a relaxed evening by the barbecue or campfire.

As this is a small site, facilities are kept to a minimum but guests have access to toilets, a shower, a washbasin and recycling area.

Please note

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

    Being woken up at 7:30 in the morning to the sound of a motorised mower cutting the grass on the tent pitches.

From the manager...

Thanks for your comments John.
But I can assure anyone reading this that nobody was cutting grass at 7:30am.
All maintenance work is carried out early evening or on a weekend, late morning and afternoon.

    Wonderful atmosphere! Wonderful campsite! Scenic and had everything we could have hoped for! Quiet, apart from nature (owls and river) neighbors were friendly and only a short walk to the town.

    The dog loved it, however she would whine at the sheep a lot x

    Take a walk up the hill at sunrise along the public path, it’s stunning!

Large pitches, clean facilities perfect for backpacker's12/09/2021

  • Liked: 

    Large pitch, picnic benches and a fire pit provided for each pitch. Basic facilities which were very clean. They also provided a warm shower as well. Loved camping near to river. Walking distance to a lovely well stocked village shop with local produce. Well worth the price paid for our stay.

    Disliked: 

    Public footpath runs straight through campsite. It is really busy at times. It's a bit off putting eating your lunch with a constant stream of locals and backpackers gawping at you as they trudge past. Not the owners fault at all and something that can't be helped. This camp site is perfect overnight stop for those travelling the Cambrian Way.

Directions

Local attractions

When in Cumbria you’ll surely be wanting some time near the lakes, so factor in a trip to Bassenthwaite (about a 35-minute drive from the site) for watery walks. Derwentwater’s about the same distance for standup paddleboarding, windsurfing and canoeing, and Pooley Bridge is the place for sailing past peaks on the famed Ullswater steamers (35 minutes’ drive).

The countryside is of course cracking round here, but history can also be had at spots like Carlisle Castle and Mirehouse House and Gardens about 30 minutes away. And if you’re toying with the idea of eloping, Gretna Green takes about 40 minutes to reach.

In this land of plenty, guests are also close to the coast – Solway’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is about 40 minutes by car for views over the sea, with the beaches being a tad further if you want to get your toes stuck into some sand.

Must see

  • Mirehouse Historic House and Gardens (9.3 miles)
  • Castlerigg Stone Circle (10.4 miles)
  • Carlisle Castle (11.0 miles)

National Trust

  • Wordsworth House and Garden (14.1 miles)
  • Acorn Bank Garden and Watermill (19.2 miles)
