- 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.

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.
