9ecff4bd-6a03-4dd2-b472-387200042745

The Camping and Caravanning Club has acquired two campsites in the Lake District National Park.

The campsites, Scotgate and Braithwaite Bridges, are owned by Scotgate Holiday Park and located between Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite Lake close to the Lakeland town of Keswick.

When combined the two campsites total nearly 18 acres, cater for all forms of camping and are just 500 metres apart. They include 250 camping pitches and a 1.8-acre rally field. There is also a licenced shop and café on Scotgate, with planning consent for further hardstandings, along with a shop and café at Braithwaite Bridges.

Bob Hill, the Club’s Sites Director, said: “The Lake District National Park is hugely popular with tourists. To secure these two campsites in prime, scenic locations is a real coup for the Club and is thanks to our Commercial Development Manager, Nathan Goodyear…We’re looking forward to working alongside the existing holiday park management team as we move into the 2019 camping season.”

The acquisition brings the Club’s total number of campsites in and around the Lake District to eight.
