I have a mate who`s going up to Keswick tomorrow in his motorhome and he asked if i knew what the parking was like at the Lakeside Car Park in Keswick ?

Personally i don`t know but i said i`d ask on here as i`m sure there are members who regularly go there.

It is purely daytime parking and he will not be wanting to spend the night there.

He has a 7 m motorhome and wants to know if there`s anywhere he can " overhang " so as to only occupy 1 bay ?

He also has a Blue Badge and wants to know if it`s free or is it the extra hour on top of what`s paid that some councils operate ?

If it's the one next to the theatre on the lake I have stopped there on numerous occasions including overnighting in my recently sold 6.5 metre c class.
I just overhung the rear onto the grass but to be honest numerous others didn't bother and had no problems. I would suggest your friend gets there early as it's always busy regardless of what day of the week it is.
When overnighting I tend to arrive after 10.00 pm as the carpark is empty after the theatre customers have left. I then get a parking ticket early next morning and spend the day in Keswick.
I cannot help regarding blue badge charges, sorry.

Hi Wooie, Tell your mate if he has any trouble parking on the lakeside car park to try the rugby club just down the road, I have parked there a few times in the past and as far as I recall it cost less than a fiver for the day.
regards
Phil
