Perfect CL

We've had two trips to this site, both in December when the Lakes are at there most dark, wet and drear. But this CL has ticked all the boxes on both occasions - fantastic views, easy access and set-up even in the dark, neat and tidy hard-standing, peace and solitude, good walks from the site and great pubs nearby. Looking forward to our next trip, hopefully in the summer when it'll be even better

Great CL amazing views

We finally managed to get up to the Lake District for a week and what a week - the weather was glorious aside from a couple of thunder storms but even this meant we had a spectacular light show to watch over Keswick. Unfortunately the flies came out with the good weather but this was not a site issue, more of a local area issue and it didn't stop us having a great time. The site is well kept and the owners are friendly - we are still enjoying the supply of double yolk eggs we brought back with us. The views over Blencathra and beyond are spectacular and this CL was a great base to get some more Wainwrights ticked off - Blencathra included. Even though it is just off the A66 - very easily accessed - there is no road noise. We can't wait to come back :-)

Eggsactly the ideal place to stay !!!

I have stopped at this site at least once a year for the last 20 years and never had a problem. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The view of Blencathra is exceptional and when you add that to the view down towards the peaks around Keswick you won't be disappointed. As others have said the eggs are a treat. Shower and toilet are clean. As with any working farm the owners are not there to be at your beck and call but more than happy to help if ASKED.Already booked in for 2020 and looking forward to it.

Ten days with outstanding scenery

We spent 10 nights at Askew Rigg in early October. Access is so easy Just off the A66. There is a little background traffic noise during the day but we were out most days so it wasn’t an issue. The view over Blencathra is outstanding. The site is so handy for exploring in all directions. There are 3 or 4 pubs within a couple of miles - I think we tried them all on our way home from days out exploring in the car. The pitches are all good and hard-surfaced, with individual dustbins very handy. The ground between pitches can get a bit soggy; how the owner still managed to mow the grass one day was unbelievable. Eggs are sold from a cupboard in the farmyard - they are huge, mostly double yolkers- there aren’t many eggs that you can share one between two people! Tv advice - use your aerial vertical for best signal. It was a bit temperamental in bad weather, but on the whole ok. We loved Askew Rigg and the northern Lake District - So beautiful - and Keswick market on a Saturday morning was a good find. There is no doubt You will enjoy your stay here.

Our first CL Site Stop - Perfect scenic location

This was our first CL site stop and we will definitely be returning. The views are truly amazing and the location is a great base for getting to Keswick and exploring the surrounding hills and walks. We only stayed three nights but wished it were longer, 2 adults, 2 children and a dog - we had a great day out walking the hills and then explored Keswick the next day, walking around the Derwent Water and the town. We stopped for a meal at the Mill Inn which is about a 1.5miles towards Mungrisdale - basically turn right out of the site entrance. The food is out of this world and the welcome for children and dogs was very nice too. The CL site itself is clean and tidy and all you would expect of a rural site. We had electric hook up and experienced no problems at all with it or the tv signal despite some rough weather. The facilities are clean and basic but not lacking, take some 20p coins for the shower and you'll be fine. Everything you need is there. All in all a great site, good value for money, in a truly beautiful location - :)
