New for 2020…Mongolian Yurt Experience

Welcome

When we found Kestrel Lodge we were immediately smitten with the area. We wanted to create a traditional camping ground with lots of home comforts. A hot shower, covered areas for rainy days and a place to clean muddy boots and canine friends.

At Kestrel Lodge Campsite we allow campfires, as we know there is nothing nicer than relaxing around a roaring fire underneath the stars after a busy day out on the fells. We found Kestrel Lodge and fell in love with the area, we hope you do so too.

We're all looking forward to meetings you soon.

COVID-19 UPDATE - Kestrel Lodge will not be opening as planned. At the moment we’ve put back our opening until the beginning of May. This may change, but we will review that as we get closer to the time.

We are still able to take your bookings for next year so please call 017687 76752 or email to let us know you're coming.

    Banff!!

    More of our winter escapades and entertainment. Banff. Yay!.... But, no. It's not another winter holiday in the gloriously gorgeous Canadian Ski resort, this is the wonderfully exciting, informative, and inspirational Banff Mountain Film festival held at Keswick Theatre by the Lake.
