Setmabanning is a beautifully located family run caravan and camping park in the heart of the Lake District with stunning views of Blencathra and surrounding fells. It is an excellent base for both exploration or simply relaxation. The more energetic can tackle the Blencathra, Skiddaw and Hellvelyn ranges which are all located nearby or if you fancy something a little easier there are beautiful footpaths and cycle tracks around the local valley which can also lead to Keswick.

We are popular with both families and walkers.

Open March to October.
