Brilliantly situated Lake District glamping, close to both Derwentwater and the charming market town of Keswick.

Tucked away between Dertwentwater and Skiddaw, and just a few minutes' walk from the local tourist town of Keswick, there are few better locations to find safari tents in the Lake District than Derwentwater Campsite – an expansive but peaceful site ideally located for all the delights of this ravishing part of Cumbria. Close by the north shore of Derwentwater, it is, unsurprisingly, a fabulous base for water-based activities, but it's also well placed for exploring some of the Lakes' most famous hiking routes. For active campers the place is a boon.

In total, there are no less than nine safari tents in their own sheltered area of the campsite. Each has two bedrooms furnished with proper beds (each tent can sleep 4 adults or a family of 6), a living area that extends outside to a pleasant terrace, and a kitchenette fitted out with everything you need – hob, microwave, fridge, pots and pans, crockery and cutlery.

Once you've settled in, you can get out and explore the surroundings – Keswick, with its shops, restaurants and other attractions is a perfect place to stock up on supplies before heading up the nearby hulk of Skiddaw – a 3,054ft summit (the sixth highest in England) that dominates the skyline here, and is accessible by way of a beautiful and surprisingly easy trail. 

There are equally pleasant walks to be done around Derwentwater's shores, but you could just as easily stay put and contemplate life in the site itself, an easy choice once that all-pervading sense of relaxation takes hold.

Your time spent…where it matters

Time away with family & friends is great, but let’s be honest - it can sometimes be hectic to even think about!

Ready Camp takes away some of the stresses and hassles of camping - having a pre-erected, canvas-wrapped haven with real beds, a kitchen and dining area. There’s no need to fill the car rammed to the rafters with an endless supply of ‘just in cases’. We give you back the time to do the fun things together with your friends and family.

Pack your bedding & a sense of adventure

Walk into a comfortable haven with cosy furnishings and oodles of little luxuries.  With two bedrooms, an open plan living/dining area where you can wine and dine to your hearts content or put your feet up on the comfy settee after a long day’s adventure.

The Kitchen area includes a fridge, microwave and hob, along with basic cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery. (We’ve even supplied the corkscrew!)

When it comes to light’s out…we’ve even included a torch for those midnight toilet trips, or just to make funny shadows on the tent!

Family Break

We have just returned from a family 5 day break at Derwentwater ready camp. To sum it up - everything but the kitchen sink - LITERALLY!. You just need to pack your bedding and clothes and everything else is provided. The tents were really spacious and clean and were situated at the entrance to the park right near to the washing facilities (a brand new toilet/washing area was being assembled as we left which looked fantastic). A short walk to Derwentwater lake and an even closer walk to Keswick town centre/supermarket. Would definitely use these again when returning to the lake district and would definitely recommend to stay.
