Stayed here for one week in order to attend Week 3 of the Keswick Bible Convention from 26/07/14 to 02/08/14. Seven of us rented 2 apartments (1 and 2). Several of us walked into Keswick along the route of the old railway line and it took about 25 minutes if strolling and 15 at a faster pace. Walk was reported to be lovely as was the walk by the river.
POSITIVE: Accommodation was very good with decent sized bathroom (separate bath & over the bath shower), comfy sofas, balcony on to the garden and good general facilities. Clean carpets, curtains and kitchen. Dining table and sitting area are combined. The bedroom with 2 single beds was perfectly fine. The kitchen had a small dishwasher, good sized fridge and most of the crockery, glasses and utensils you'd expect to need if you are cooking any meals. Bedrooms had good curtains that kept the light out in the morning/day. The site was quiet and uncluttered and clean with good parking close by. There were dogs on site but they were always well controlled and there was no sign of "fouling".
NEGATIVE: Double bed was 4ft 6in, which (had my husband been with me) would have driven us mad as we have a Super King at home and as so many people now have larger beds at home, it is a great negative to not be able to sleep well. Some kitchen items claimed in the inventory were not there such as kitchen scissors and grater and if we had not been sharing with our friends in the other apartment, we would have found those missing items annoying. But I think the owners would have dealt with that information had we realised and reported it early on in the week. A spare "black bag" for rubbish would have been a great help. The dishwasher in one apartment was also "coming on" but not doing anything other than that. We reported this to the owners. Closer checks on inventory before new visitors arrive would be good! A cafetiere and a decent spatula would be helpful additions to the kitchen. And there is very little storage room for tea, coffee, tins and jars and food generally. I would suggest hanging the ironing board high up on the wall, putting the rubbish bin by the tank cupboard and fitting a set of 2 narrow cupboards (or even just one would help!) by the door. And there are places in the bathroom where a couple more short towel rails could with a bit of ingenuity, be fitted so that we could have all left our towels in the bathroom.

We have been to Low Briery many times over the year's. Excellent place to stay, friendly and helpful staff, clean and well maintained, quiet location but close to Keswick centre, perfect for our dogs, looking forward to returning again.

We have been going to this site for 17 years now and always take our dogs. it is very peaceful not like if you stay in town which we have with the market setting up noise and the nightclub.

Low Briery lets you really relax and loads of walks for the 4 legged ones.

I have looked at other places in Windermere and Ambleside for a change, but cant find any caravan site which is as good value most want £80 a week per dog, but not at Low Briery just a small charge.

Well worth checking out this place if you want to come to Keswick with your dogs.

Room tip: all the caravans are great they come with everything you could need.

We stayed here with extended family and 3 young children.
Stayed in Briery a House which was perfect so we could all be together.
Child's indoor play area was used every day by the kids and the paddling pool is a perfect depth for little ones.
Easy 20 min walk along old railway line into Keswick is ideal for buggies or bikes as is all off road.
1 hour walk the other way to a small village with a great pub with fantastic food.
Staff at Low Briery couldn't have been more helpful and friendly.
Will return.

We stayed in a Canadian Log Cabin over the Easter period. The accommodation was extremely tidy and well equipped. The site has a games area where my 2 sons loved playing ping pong and pool. The location on the river is excellent, and the path next to the site runs to the outskirts of Keswick and will realistically take 25 minutes into the centre on a level walk. We walked back once with torches late at night, on all other occasions we got a taxi at fare £4 (we paid £5).
The staff were excellent and knowledgeable about local area, and when I found the mattress caused a problem with my back, my wife informed reception and while we were out for the day the mattress was changed for a firmer one and my back was fine afterwards (superb service).
We go away for a week each Easter and will definitely return next year as the site is so good and there is so much to do in the local area.
Eating out in Keswick is really nice with the Packhorse and the Dog and Gun our favourites.
