Nice spot to stop for a spot of lunch. Free for NT members.View all reviews by SimonMorley
Lovely quite spot. We pulled in late afternoon (twice) and asked others leaving the CP for their ticket, which saw us through to midnight. Had 3 nights here in total in August 2019. On the last morning a warden informed us 'no overnight parking' ....OK, but a bit late. Anything longer than 8m may struggle.View all reviews by izzy
Lovely car park but on the pay machine it states “ no overnight sleeping in vehicles” in small letters but enough for us to move on.View all reviews by marshallman
Secluded spot, well sign posted. We arrived late (00.20hrs) so paid £7.50 which gave us a full 24hrs to park but we think the clock resets at midnight so you only get until midnight on the day you arrive. Its free for national trust members however. No signs saying no overnight parking either, very frendly ranger who gave us some local information. 5 minute walk from lake derwent. 1 mile from keswick which has a range of outdoor shops, cafes and the like. We didnt use the transport links but there were plenty of buses passing theough. Recommend!View all reviews by ptayls
Very quiet and secluded location. Quite isolated. Someone in another MH told us the National Trust representative will occasionally knock on your door early morning and ask for a contribution to the National Trust if you do not display your membership sticker. No facilities or view other than woodland but beautiful walks across the road around Derwent Water.View all reviews by pollyw
Fantastic location just off Derwent water in the Great Wood National Trust car park.View all reviews by admin
Busy during the day with walkers etc, but after 6pm everyone goes and we had the place to ourselves.
Nice and quiet and felt safe, police came patrolling every night but just drove round the car park and left.
We joined the National Trust and got parking fee refunded (also got 25% discount of the fee for being camping and caravan club members) as this entitles you to park for free in any of the NT car parks in the lakes. The NT warden said officially you are not allowed to overnight but they turn a blind eye to NT members.
We had a great walk around Derwent Water - about 10 miles and another walk up Cat Bells (13 miles) on Easter Sunday.
Easy 1 1/2 mile walk into Keswick or there is a bus stop 100 yards down the road with half hourly service up and down the lake.
