Kestrel Lodge is a quiet, family friendly, Lakeland campsite suitable for tents and trailer tents. We are a traditional camping ground with a modern shower block, situated in a quiet corner of the National Park.
Sitting in an enviable position, below Skiddaw with views across the valley to Bassenthwaite Lake, Kestrel Lodge Campsite is surrounded by some of the best fell walking routes in the country. It’s a perfect base for exploring the Lake District and Northern Fells.
Keswick and Cockermouth are within a 15 minutes’ drive. You will find a large number of shops, cafes, restaurants, and other attractions. Within a short stroll away from the campsite is the village of Bassenthwaite, which has a great local pub, serving comforting hot food and traditional ale.
Kestrel Lodge Campsite is all about peace and tranquillity. We are located off the beaten track yet within easy access of everything. You really will feel like you are in the middle of the countryside, without being too far away from amenities.
At wet times it may be necessary to ask visitors on grass pitches NOT to take vehicles on to the grass. If it is wet our priority is to protect the ground, vehicles may be required to park on hard standing close by.
Electric hook-ups are available but in limited numbers. Booking would be recommended, so please call to avoid disappointment if you need electric!
During October 2021 the campsite will only be open for camping through the weekend and the October half term holiday, then we will be closed until the 15th of April 2022. We've already got bookings in the diary, so if you want to get a head start on planning your 2022 getaway...it's never too early to give us a call! We do also have two pitches for small campervans (T5 type with no toilet or need for chemica disposal point) that are open year round. As there are only two pitches, booking is highly recommended.
To book please call 017687 76752 or email to let us know you're coming.
