Setmabanning Caravan Park: View from the pitches

General

  • Working farm site in the Lake District with stunning fell views
  • Just off the A66 road in Threlkeld, a 10-minute drive from Keswick
  • Blencathra, Skiddaw and Helvellyn ranges within 20-minute drive

Looking for a lush location to settle down in while exploring Lakeland? Step foot in the family-run Setmabanning Caravan Park, then step off site towards top spots like Keswick and the Castlerigg Stone Circle (10 minutes’ drive).

This site really is very easy on the eye: it’s got spectacular views of Blencathra and the surrounding fells, making it fab for frolicking about the Lake District (or just having a bit of R&R in a rural bolthole).

During a break here, the more energetic among your travel crew could tackle the Blencathra, Skiddaw and Helvellyn ranges, all within about a 20-minute drive, while strollers seeking easier trails might prefer the pretty footpaths and cycle tracks around the local valley and towards Keswick.

Sticking to the site is always an option too – being a working farm, there’s lots to see and do, whether it’s watching the sheep being sheared and the cows going out into the fields with their calves or feeding the chickens and ducks as they wander by.

When it comes to filling your own stomach, it’s a 25-minute walk to the centre of the nearest village, Threlkeld, which has two country pubs serving Cumbrian food and ales. Meals are also to be had at the golf club, and the Threlkeld Quarry & Mining Museum (10 minutes) is worth a quick nosey around as well.

Please note

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

At least one of the party members must be aged 25 or over.

Owing to government regulations, groups of 6 or more people are not permitted.

This site has no on-site toilet and shower facilities.

    Very rural, right in farm and loads for kids to see. The owners were very tolerant of all their questions! Amazing bike ride down into Keswick right from campsite. Recently opened and beautifully kept. Lots of walks from the campsite, nearby parks for kids.

    Nothing not to like about this place. We had a large pitch at top of site beside little bridge. Sun all day. Very friendly owners,a typical working farm.lovely walks anywhere you wanted to go, especially by the streams.No signs telling you to keep off the land. Eggs and sweets and cakes in honesty box. The toilets and showers might be dated and very basic,but the best and most powerful we've had .20 minute walk to pub called horse and farrier. Will definitely be back. The views were amazing.

Directions

Local attractions

The site is on a cycle path leading to Keswick, so you could either drive to town (10 minutes) or ride there by bike. Once you’ve arrived, have a left-of-field hour or so learning about the history of pencils at the Derwent Pencil Museum before gazing at artefacts dug up from around Lakeland in the Keswick Museum & Art Gallery.

Just on the outskirts of town is the Castlerigg Stone Circle, dating back as far as the Neolithic area; check this historic spot out, then trudge up to the 2,848-foot Halls Fell Top at the peak of Blencathra. The mighty mountain ranges of Skiddaw (20 minutes’ drive) and Helvellyn (10 minutes) are also local to the site if you’re up for another hiking challenge.

As you’re in the Lake District, you’ll surely want to be inspecting some of the area’s bodies of water too. The closest to Keswick is Derwent Water (15 minutes) – ace for boat trips around the Theatre by the Lake – but Thirlmere (10 minutes) and Ullswater (20 minutes) are within easy reach as well.

Must see

  • Castlerigg Stone Circle (3.2 kilometres)
  • Mirehouse Historic House and Gardens (9.4 kilometres)
  • Whinlatter Forest & Visitor Centre (9.7 kilometres)

National Trust
