Why stay here ...
With the lovely fells soaring up and wild flowers in bloom everywhere, the Borrowdale Club Site is a delight to the eye. Located about 5 miles from Keswick and set in National Trust woodland, the caravan park offers numerous walking paths to explore the beautiful northern Lakes area. It doesn't have to be strenuous - forest trails, nature trails, guided walks and farm walks leave you spoilt for choice. There is a convenient bus service that runs from the site.
If the Lakes themselves are the main attraction on your holiday break, Borrowdale Club Site puts you within easy reach of Derwentwater, popular for its boats and vibrant marina, not to mention its range of pubs and restaurants. Bassenthwaite Water is also a short distance away from the caravan site and merits exploration for its Sailing Club. If more tranquil surroundings are what you're after, the charming waters of Buttermere and Crummock Water would be just the ticket, as here there is only the occasional passing rowing boat to disturb your lakeside reveries. The lovely local scenery also includes the dramatic hills of Castle Crag and Cats Bells. The hamlet of Grange, with a tea shop on the picturesque banks of the river is only a short walk away and local pubs & restaurants are within easy reach of the site.
Please note: This site does not have a toilet block.
Please only use these recommended directions for the final approach and not sat nav, due to alternative routes being unsuitable for towing. Leave M6 at junction 40 onto the A66 (Keswick).

In about 4.25 miles (about 0.5 mile past Borrowdale Hotel) turn right over the bridge (care required) into the road signposted Grange, Newlands (note width restriction warning sign). The site is on the right in 1 mile. Please note: when towing, do not approach or leave site along the west side of Derwentwater. Also, before turning right off the B5289 at Grange, check that bridge (takes all caravans) is clear. Care needed through Grange village, on double humpbridge and on final approach (narrow) and turning into site.

Came the wrong way round but only in a 6m Motorhome so did it, just. So worth it, the views were amazing. Great welcome on arrival and perfect COVID-19 safety in place. If you really want to get away from it all can’t recommend here enough. Pitch sizes were huge but beware pine needles. We had wind and rain and they got everywhere. No ones fault. We saw red squirrels, twice!! Fantastic walks from site. Definitely able to walk to pubs and tea rooms if averagely fit. Tip, if driving into Keswick in a Motorhome, get there early!
PS The ferries are not running at the moment, only doing a round trip from Keswick and back
