If you are visiting the Lake District you will surely want to make the most of the natural landscape here. One of the popular spots for camping and enjoying the spectacular sights in Cumbria district is Kestrel Lodge camping. There are several camping spots here and you can take your pick as per your personal preferences of amenities and landscape views around.
When you visit Kestrel Lodge camping you will find an old farm setting which the owners have turned into an enviable camping location. They have turned an old farmstead with some quirky countryside touches as well as modern amenities like modern showers that convert into an idyllic camping site for many. It is located close to the Bassenthwaite Lake which is in the southwest of this campsite. You will enjoy grasslands with patches ready to climb into from where great vistas open up for you to sit back and look at. Enjoy the hills falling away in the adjacent areas along with woodlands nearby.
The owners of the camping site offer you a personal and friendly camping experience. Whether you want to know the hiking trails close by or a pub that you could hit in a spot of your favorite drink and dinner meals, you have the right local expertise even as you enjoy the wilderness experience. With three generations of a family who run this site, they enjoy sharing their fond memories with every guest as well as offering their personalized experiences and tour guidance as you require.
Kestrel Lodge has about 30 grass pitches along with electrical connections as well. They are particular to whom they offer the pitches to which usually includes families, scouts along with pets. They are hesitant to offer the same to stag or hen parties though. You will get toilet and shower blocks along with a cooking area, facilities for laundry, freezer, and shop for the basics and fire pits.
It is needless to say that the camping site is ideal for families. Even if you get muddy footprints by the end of the day, you will surely have a good day out by the Lakes. Skiddaw is the mountain that looms on the horizon as well as the Bassenthwaite village in the backdrop. I climbed this mountain with my friend from http://www.ridofitvancouver.ca in 2007. Here you can visit the Sun Inn where the comforting pub food and ales running through the taps provide the perfect end to a day of hiking. It is located about 30 minutes walk from this campsite.
