- Campervan overnighter near Keswick
If you’re coming in via the A66 and turn off onto High Hill (eventually turns into keswick main st) there’s a right turn that leads to a foot bridge to Portinscale. I’ve often seen camper vans, mobile homes etc parked there so you could try that. (as mentioned above ha ha)
Scotgate Holiday Park is nearby, not sure what they charge for campers but won’t be much now it’s off season.Posted 1 year agojekkylMember
Newlands Valley? – Couple of pints and dinner in Buttermere then up the hill by 5 minutes. It will be deserted and pitch black, atmospheric with the sounds of the waterfall in the dark. http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?x=319301&y=517640&z=120&sv=319301,517640&st=4&ar=y&mapp=map.srf&searchp=ids.srf&dn=550&ax=319301&ay=517640&lm=0Posted 1 year agosharkattackMember
I’ve spent a few nights in the lay by off High Hill. It’s easy to spot as there’s always loads of vans there. Get there early as it fills up. If you search ‘Cumbria Way Keswick’ on Google maps, it’s at the west of that footpath above Derwent Hill.
I’ve also stayed at Castlerigg next to the stone circle. Again, always other vans there. Less likely to stand out and get hassled.
(might be nice to get a shower).
If you find anywhere, do let us know.Posted 1 year ago
Horse and Farrier was great. They let us stay in the carpark overnight. Food was good and we dried our kit in front of the open fire.Posted 1 year ago
We did Nan Beild on Sunday in the worst wind I’ve experienced on a ride and we got snow too.
Then today we did some ridiculous bike hike from Whinlatter, finishing off with a descent off Grisedale Pike.
I’ve not had a shower yet 🙂
