Low Manasty Caravan Club Site - Keswick

Post by MrsCC on Thu Jul 19, 2012 8:05 pm

Low Manesty Carvan Club site near Keswick, set in National Trust woodland, close to Derwentwater Cumbria.

The last mile to the site was narrow with a single width double back bridge stated 6’ 6”width to negotiate and at a weekend the narrow road had vehicles parked along the left side making access difficult uncertain . The site itself recommends when leave to vacate your pitch by 1130am to ensure you don’t meet any incoming vehicles to the site! However during the week this part of the road appears clear! up!

The entrance to the site was clearly marked and easy to find and its was set within woodlands. We were met by the wardens and made welcome. They went through the site map, identifying where the motor home service point was – this site had no toilet block – but again no problem with the Nuevo as it has all the facilities we need on board.

After driving slowly through the woodland we identified a pitch. All the pitches are set in a woodland offering privacy from other pitches. Pitches are set in groups so you have a wide choice to choose from depending on your preference. The pitches are hard standing and appeared to be fairly level but were suffering from a touch of overgrown greenery! However as the site was in the woods this added to the character of the pitch. We chose to pitch up in “Squirrels Leap” other areas were – "Lakeside Gardens", "Cat Bells", "The Avenue". We had hook up and TV all the luxuries you need! allthumbz

An information room was present on site with a few leaflets in it read and a selection of places to eat BBQ and the reception had a small selection of shop products girl-thinking .

The site had a dog walk walkies though the trees onsite or alternatively there were 2 pathways off the site. one marked “to the Lake” and the other “to Manesty Woods” the walk to the Lake goes to the southern end of Derwentwaters a wonderful walk and view, the walk to Manesty Woods takes you into the woods with birds in abundance and raised tree roots under foot. The morning we were due to leave the site I took candy for a walk starting off at the “to the lakes” path and coming back through the “Manesty Woods” walkway a round walk of 20 minutes. content

Ideal site for walkers and for visiting Keswick, Wordsworth Museum, Pencil Museum, Derwentwater, Whinlatter forest visitors centre and many more local attractions. It is a great peaceful location in which you can relax and un-wind in a enchanting Forrest location. best_friends
