General

  • Peaceful family-run farm site next to the River Derwent
  • Excellent base for hikes: walk to Scafell Pike in two hours
  • A 20-minute drive from Keswick and five from Honister Slate Mine

Setting forth for the Lake District to seek out some scenic views? Settle in to Seatoller Farm and you can start on the scenery-seeing without so much as moving from the site. The views from this family-fun Cumbria farm are stunning whichever way you turn, taking in vistas of the Borrowdale valley and the River Derwent, which runs past the site.

A nifty central location in the Lake District National Park means this site is well placed for lots of fab walks, whether you’re up for scrambling up Scafell Pike, ticking off lots of the Wainwright fells or just taking a more leisurely riverside ramble. Protected woodland runs along one side of the farm, so you’re likely to encounter wildlife even just pottering around on site – bats, buzzards, woodpeckers and owls are among the frequent visitors.

Facilities on site have been kept low key to preserve the relaxed rural vibe – separate gents’ and ladies toilets are close to the pitches, as are washing-up facilities and drinking water taps; showers are a short walk away at the main farm building.

Campfires and barbecues aren't allowed here, to avoid stray sparks causing trouble in the woods, so if you need to warm up after a walk it’s a fine idea to wander down to the nearest pub a mile away, for drinks and dinners. More pubs, restaurants and a supermarket are a 20-minute drive away in Keswick.

Please note

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

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

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    That the shower block was about a ten minute walk away. You could drive but the car park near the showers is national trust so you have to pay

    Myself, my girlfriend and my dog stayed her for the long bank holiday weekend in August. The campsite was easy to find and we found a lovely pitch right by the river. The campsite has good facilities which were kept clean (even on the very muddy Friday!). The next few days were very hot and the walks available on the campsite doorstep were amazing, we rarely used the car. There is a regular bus into Keswick near the entrance to the campsite which was also handy.

Excellent site with clean facilities, friendly staff and level pitches09/01/2019

    We booked this trip because we needed a break from just buying a house and being so damn busy and occupied with it.
    I haven’t been camping in a while and usually I stay in Pooley Bridge so I was worried about booking somewhere new but oh my how glad I am I booked here!
    It’s just a short drive into Kewsick, and the camp site itself was lovey. Clean, tidy, beautiful settings.
    Although it was bank holiday weekend we nabbed a spot on flat ground with a small walk to the toilets (which were always lovely and clean) and close to everything we needed! Although the showers are in the farm block and not on site, the walk was no bother at all and the showers were perfect and clean. (I’m usually fussy with showers because I have long hair and bad water pressure riles me) but the showers were perfect and the walk it fair enough because the views are gorgeous and the farm is lovely.
    If you’re looking for a camp site close to activities for the daytime but don’t mind spending the night just cosy on the site getting to know each other that little bit better then this is your place. The vibe on the site was lovely, everyone was happy. And Daniel (who seemed to keep the site clean and also collected the money) was a lovey guy.
    I’m from Newcastle and have been to the lakes before, my partner is from Essex and had never been.. didn’t even know what they were! I warned him he’d want to make sure it an annual trip, and I was so right. We’ve both agreed we’d love to come back and stay at this site again. And we absolutely will! Absolutely outstanding value for money.

    Disliked: 

    Our only dislike is that when we went out during the day in our car, returned to a super busy camp site and somebody had taken my spot in front of our tent (the busy was nice because the atmosphere was good) but just meant that although the spot was ideally for our tent (and they had three cars for their tents opposite us) we couldn’t park there anymore and had to park our car a little bit away and I was a little worried about it. Not a bit deal though, and not the sites fault.

    The location of this campsite is breathtaking. A perfect spot for those looking to be completely surrounded by the natural beauty of the area, though close enough to Keswick for the shops and good food. Steven was a great host for us, always present in the morning to answer any questions - no matter the weather!
    Would seriously recommend for those that are fans of basic camping, the toilets are right on site while the showers are a short and beautiful walk away meaning the site is as natural as possible.
    The ground was a little rocky for our tent pegs, bring some sturdy ones!
    Thanks again!

Local attractions

Dust off those hiking boots, for Seatoller’s surrounds are stacked with walking trails to suit all comers, from those seeking a gentle stroll through woodland and across heather-strewn fells to those in search of more vertical challenges. A couple of the national park’s top climbs are within hiking distance here – Great Gable is an hour and a half away on foot, and mighty Scafell Pike a couple of hours.

Roam a little further afield for hikes on Catbells (15 minutes’ drive), around the Castlerigg stone circle (25 minutes) or on the slopes of Helvellyn (half an hour away, and a fine choice for mountain bikers too). If you’d like to have a crack at climbing in a controlled environment, try the via ferrata route at Honister Slate Mine, five minutes away, and worth a stop for an underground mine tour even if you’re not up to clinging on to crags.

All sound a little tiring? Less demanding days out include the Lake District Wildlife Park (half an hour) and the sculpture trail at Rydal Hall Gardens (40 minutes). It’s worth knocking around Keswick for a bit too, visiting the eccentric Puzzling Place exhibition and Derwent Pencil Museum or taking tours and tipples at the town’s brewery.
