We came for a week in June this year with our tent and our two dogs having been recommended by a friend.
The campsite itself was awesome!! Lovely large camping field with trees and shrubs. Spectacular views across Derwent Water and of the surrounding mountains. The campsite was extremely peaceful during the week and even on the Friday night it wasn't too noisy even though it was busier.
There is a well stocked shop on site with everything you might want as well as a helpful reception area with leaflets and very friendly people on reception.
We ate at the on site restaurant one night and then again for breakfast on the last day. It's competitively priced and good service.
Shower blocks were the best I've ever seen on a campsite. Always clean and you never needed to queue for anything. They were warm and the showers were always hot. Sometimes a bit too hot. We were fortunate to stay during a spell of super hot weather and a cooler shower would have been awesome . There is also a campers kitchen. There are toasters and microwaves you can use for some money but also a deep freezer you can use for free (helpful for refreezing your ice bricks).
Our dogs were made to feel very welcome. There are dog walking areas on site but also some excellent walks directly from the campsite. I especially liked the secret tunnel through the campsite into Keswick. There is also a handy dog wash if your dog is particularly grubby and need a hosing down. This is also heated.
I will definitely be coming back. Best campsite I've ever been too.
