I have used this site for over 15 years, both with school groups and with friends during climbing trips. It is a generally quiet, unpretentious and reasonably well equipped farm site blessed with stunning views, friendly hosts and within easy reach of Keswick by car or even on foot! The essentials are all there; clean toilet blocks, hot showers, wash... More

This site is just outside of Keswick and a great little site it is. We had a 4 night stay here and have to say we loved it. There is a mixture of static caravans tourers and tents. The views around the site are breath taking, with blencathra, skiddaw to name but two mountains in view. If you go out... More

We stayed here as we wanted a tent pitch with electric, at last minute, and dalebottom farm said there was plenty of space and quoted a much cheaper price than other sites in the area. Dalebottom is located in a lovely valley, it was very windy the day we arrived but we were very sheltered and hardly felt a breeze.... More

I stayed at Dale Bottom campsite for one night on a hot day in July 2014. The owner was friendly and helpful after I arrived slightly dehydrated after two days hiking. I camped in the bottom field which had lovely views of High Rigg fell. I like the informal sites best as they are usually a bit cheaper and suit... More

Lovely site just out of Keswick, owner was very friendly, did not mind our late arrival. Little shop on site with some essentials and fresh eggs. Toilets a little basic but clean and working. Would stay here again.

The campsite is average at best, the owner had a attitude problem and very little manners. When arriving on the site, the owner was very abrupt. There are better campsites in the area. Avoid this site.

Convenient for Derwent, Bassenthwaite and Thirlmere lakes which is important to us for kayaking. Great walks to be had from the campsite. Lots of hot water in the ladies block and plenty of cushion soft loo roll! There's a little shop on site which the farmer mans when needed. Not sure how well stocked it was but my children bought...

I don't normally write reviews but I visited last week and I feel it's only fair to give a bit of positive feedback to this campsite as it was instrumental to a very enjoyable stay for my friend and I. We drove around a couple of places before choosing Dalebottom as it looked right for us. The people who ran... More

This is a basic campsite is cheap and for the price.you shouldn't expect anymore than what you get! Toliets and shower block are clean and be thankful they are there instead.of complaining. You will not get a 4 star campsite for the price this farmer charges. I have stayed here twice and I don't have.a grumble.
