Fully serviced 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.

    Stayed for 2 nights in September so toilets and shower blocks were closed due to Covid situation, but we knew that so went prepared. Quiet even though it is a working farm. Rural views were pretty and a taxi into Keswick was £20 return, so not to bad.

    our pitch was spacious,flat and fully serviced which was great for us. We were next to the farm so had all the entertainment from the animals that were around and lovely visits from their friendly dog. Perfect location for lots of varied walking and a bus service from the nearby village of Threlkeld where we had a great pint in the pub. Will definitely use it as a base for walking again.

    Was not clear, initially, where we should deposit our rubbish. Bins shared with some static caravans in another part of the park, hence some were very full.

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 Cumberland 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)
  • Cars of the Stars Motor Museum (5.6 kilometres)
  • Mirehouse Historic House and Gardens (9.4 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Grasmere and Great Langdale (19.6 kilometres)
  • Wordsworth House and Garden (21.2 kilometres)
