General

  • Peaceful scenic Lake District site three miles from Keswick
  • Excellent base for walks at Skiddaw, Catbells and Derwentwater
  • Pubs, shops, bus stops and hiking trails within walking distance

Heading to the Lake District for handsome scenery and hikes? Hotfoot it to Cumbria’s lovely Lanefoot Farm, in a fab location between the little villages of Thornthwaite and Braithwaite (both within a 15-minute walk for local shops and pubs), and a five-minute drive from the bigger town of Keswick.

Plenty of everyday essentials can be taken care of on site – there’s an information point stacked with local maps and leaflets, a drying room to sort your kit if you’ve been caught in a downpour and a small shop supplied with vital bits and bobs (including wood for the campfire, marshmallows to poke into the flames and ingredients for a tasty breakfast). The site’s toilet block has well-kept toilets and showers, and underfloor heating to avoid chilly toes of a morning.

With all these necessities sorted, it’s time to turn your focus on the scenery: Lanefoot Farm has gorgeous views over the surrounding fells towards Skiddaw, the Helvellyn range and Catbells, among others. If you’d rather see them from closer quarters, you’ll be chuffed to hear that they’re all easily accessed with a short drive, as are other Lake District faves including Whinlatter Forest, Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite Lake.

In excellent news for folk travelling without a car, some fells, such as Grisedale Pike and Lord's Seat, can be reached on foot from the farm. Nearby Thornthwaite is the place to pick up the C2C National Cycle Route or flag down a bus to Keswick, Penrith or Cockermouth.

    The views from the site are stunning and it’s a lovely walk to Keswick if you take the back roads.
    The toilets, showers and washing up area were kept spotless, even when there was mud everywhere.

    Disliked: 

    The lanes to the pitch’s could be a little wider, several cars got stuck in the mud because the was not enough path to turn on.

    How well kept the site was - it was immaculate despite wet and muddy conditions. The underfloor heating in the showers was brilliant. Well maintained site that still felt rustic and had a lot of character.

    Disliked: 

    Difficult to get hold of ahead of arrival - calls and an email went unanswered, was thankfully all ok.

    Nice little camp site, the facilites are clean and well maintained, although there are only three showers it wasn't busy and we never had to wait, there is also underfloor heating in the shower block which was fab. The site is located a short drive from Keswick with easy public transport links and also a short walk from Braithwaite village and the Royal Oak pub ( other pubs were available). The guy on site was friendly and helpful, the site also has a really effective drying room. The only drawback was the mud, but it is October in the lakes and it was very wet. I had read this in a previous review so we were prepared for it! Would definatley go back again but would take a tarp to go under the awning.

Local attractions

Where to start with all the fab things to see and do in the Lake District? Well, if you’re a walker perhaps with a canter up Catbells (10 minutes’ drive), as a warm-up for an attempt to summit the 931 metres of Skiddaw (20 minutes). Castlerigg Stone Circle (10 minutes) is good for a stroll if you’re after something a tad less strenuous.

And if you fancy a few different outdoorsy days? Perhaps an outing to the marina at Derwentwater for sailing or canoeing (or cruises for lazier days), or to Whinlatter Forest Park, where daredevils can take to the downhill mountain bike trails or zoom along the ziplines at the Go Ape adventure park. Both are about five minutes away by car.

There’s some excellent local wildlife to be spotted all around this area, of course, but it’s also worth a visit to the Lake District Wildlife Park (10 minutes) to see a few things that are rather more exotic. If the weather’s a little damp round the edges (it happens…), drive to Keswick (five minutes) for theatre shows, shopping and the pencil museum. Or you could take refuge in the brewery, of course…

Must see

  • Whinlatter Forest & Visitor Centre (0.6 kilometers)
  • Mirehouse Historic House and Gardens (3.6 kilometers)
