With the lovely fells soaring up and wild flowers in bloom everywhere, the Borrowdale Club Campsite 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 Campsite puts you within easy reach of Derwentwater, popular for its boats and vibrant waterfront, 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.

I was down with my daughter for some mountain biking at Whinlatter Forest and stayed at Borrowdale Club Campsite. The campsite is a lovely little site right on the banks of Derwent water. I was towing a caravan and please, do yourself a favour and come down the East Coast of the lake!! I made the mistake (despite being advised by the gentleman at the site over the phone) of coming down the West Coast of the lake and not following the Sat Nav as it's not the most caravan friendly road. My Sat Nav took me up a blind lane and I scraped the side of the van unfortunately. The East Coast of the lake is much more driver friendly! The site is incredibly peaceful and relaxing and the pitch we were in afforded easy access to the lake through a little gate. It was also a sub-20 minute walk into Keswick for restaurants. The best thing about the campsite was the staff. A genuinely lovely couple who were very friendly, helpful and kind. I wish them all the best for the close season and I hope to stay at the site in future... via the East Coast of the lake!
