About UsA Warm Welcome Awaits
Welcome to Castlerigg Hall. My grandfather Billy and grandmother Laura arrived at Castlerigg Hall Farm in 1938 on horse and cart to take on a new tenancy and farm the land here under the shadow of Walla Crag. It was my father John and mother Betty who took on the farm in the 50’s and despite many setbacks were able to purchase Castlerigg Hall and began to develop a caravan and camping site. Roads and terraces were created by my father who had purchased a digger whilst my mother and grandmother took in guests from around the world in the farmhouse providing them with dinner bed and breakfast whilst also continuing to take in casual campers that had been coming for many years.
Lake District ConservationWhen you think about it, few other businesses can give wildlife a home in the way a park can.
Our Green Ethos
As our roots are in farming we feel it is important to support and use local suppliers.
Although we have had to plant many trees over the past 50 years, the panoramic views over Derwentwater, Bassenthwaite Lake and Keswick are still the parks unique attraction. Adjacent to the park is the Derwent Holiday Camp, quite possibly the earliest permanent holiday camp in the country, dating back to at least 1909! This was purchased in the early 70’s by my father and is now part of our holiday park.
Together with my wife and son we continue to reinvest in the park improving the facilities and looking to provide special holiday memories that have been happening at Castlerigg for 110 years.
