Lake District July 2017 - Keswick

On Sunday morning we were up and ready for the long trip north to our first stop in the Lake District.  We had stayed on the Keswick Camping & Caravan Club site back in 2010 so we knew the views were stunning if you were lucky enough to get a good pitch. 

We arrived before 1pm (the sites strict arrival time!) and joined the queue with the other early arrivals.  The site is very well organised with one warden seeing in each unit, asking you to book in at reception, and then a second warden bikes you around the site to give you a choice of pitches.  We were lucky enough to be given the choice of two pitches both with views of Derwentwater, so we happily pitched up for the next 3 nights!

After pitching up we strolled into Keswick and found a lovely Cumbrian pub where we had a Sunday roast and a pint. We then had a walk (and an ice cream) through Hope Park and down to the Keswich Launch before walking back to the site to spend the evening relaxing with those views!!
