My Review:

Bridge End Farm
Thirlmere
Keswick
CA12 4TG
Tel: 017687 72166

Visited August 2007

First impressions were "Oh dear, where have we come"....and not helped by our pitch with awning space not being available untill the following morning.

How wrong we were!

Once on our pitch and awning erected, we discovered what a lovely little spot this site is in. Just off the Keswick to Ambleside road, up a narrow lane which takes you around Thirlmere.

There are 15 touring pitches with electric hook up points.
Although the toilet and shower block was only small and pretty basic ( 2 loos and 2 showers in the gents, and 4 loos and 2 showers in the ladies), they were kept clean and useable. Both had wash hand basins. Showers were by 20p slot meter.

Next to the touring pitches is an area for static caravans, and across the lane is a large field for tenters.
We were there on a Bank Holiday weekend when the site was busy, but didn't encounter any queues for the facilities. (we don't do mornings, lol)

It's about a ten minute drive to Keswick, and half hour to Ambleside.

Prices were £7 a night for a caravan or tent with 2 persons, one pound a night for the awning, and £2 for the electric hook up.
At ten pounds inclusive, in the Lakes, at peak time, I doubt you could find better value.

It is a working farm, and the owners were quite friendly.

Got to agree a lovely place and tents could camp up on the hillside too, giving you a lovely view down the valley. Regulars that we spoke to who came to the site most weekends stated it was a superb retreat and with fishing, boating and walks all nearby....Thirlmere can be fished for £6 course and £8 Trout fishing per day........Really had a relaxing week there. Will go again.

Well, we turned up in the lakes on a Bank Holiday and hadnt advanced booked. OOOps. The owners of Bridge End Farm were very friendly, took pity on us and said they would find us a spot for the night. Then the next day said we could stay for the 3 nights....result. Great area to be in for both walking from the site and a short drive takes you to some great walks and places of interest. The site is well managed. The toilets and showers are clean. The prices are very cheap £24.00 for 3 nights in a caravan with awning for 2 adults!!! We will be visiting again

Visited again this August Bank Holiday. Sylvia and Stuart the owners are very friendly. Toilets and showers cleaned daily. Lots of campers up on the hill....brave souls! The site was a little muddy but then it has rained most of the week. Still a nice place to visit and central for the Lakes. Recommended.

We visited on Friday 9th July till Sunday 11th July 2010 , My 1st camping trip for over 30years !! It not only poured down for 43 solid hours it was torrential rain, but we still had a superb time , camp site is a perfect base, it is very clean and well looked after, will deff be visiting again . We also walked the the Kings Head for dinner :( never have the Fish and Chips we were all very disappointed the fish seemed to be a cheap frozen type and not very nice at all , but the setting was very pretty.

Caravan / Campsite name (if applicable) .......... Bridge End Farm
