This is a great site - easy to find (signposted off the A66); clean and well-kept toilet/shower unit; plenty of even ground to pitch on and lovely scenery.

It's about a half hour walk to the nearest pubs in Threlkeld, both of which do good beer but take advantage of the tourists and over-price their food accordingly!

Despite being so busy that an extra field was opened up when we were there, queueing for toilets and showers wasn't much of an issue and it still felt quiet and relaxed throughout. No children's play area but the kids who were there seemed happy enough playing ball / frisbee etc on the field - there's enough space for them to do so without landing on other people's tents.

Very short drive into Keswick from here, close to Castlerigg Stone Circle and plenty of walks from your doorstep (or flap-step if you're in a tent!) Rates are reasonable for the quality of the amenities.

Caravan with two people, we booked in for four nights. Nice flat pitches and enough spaces between each unit, the area is beautiful and the walks amazing.

Close links to A66 and yes you can here traffic a touch but only when the site is silent which happened at a reasonable time while we were there.

Washing up facilities were very good and the showers clean and well stocked excellent stay for a very reasonable cost will we return YES

Reviewer: Gunjur team 1 review from this member

Whilst we initially only wanted to stay for 2 nights whilst we commuted to Workington for meetings we decided to stay an additional couple of nights as the place is so peaceful. We found the site to be well organised, clean and quiet.

The owner Linda was very obliging and we would recommend this site to others. We stayed with our 1 year old son. There are many beautiful low level and high level walks from the site - with our son in toe we opted for the low level walks!

There is great access to Keswick and also to other parts of the Lake District - easy access off the M6.

Stayed here for a couple of days in early May. It's easy to find and the shower block is excellent and was immaculately clean the whole time we were there.

The site is very quiet, though as it's a working farm, this could not always be said for the animals. If you are a light sleeper, I would recommend taking some ear plugs.

The pitches are flat and appeared to have good drainage.

The owner was very welcoming and the prices are very reasonable. The Horse & Farrier Inn in Threlkeld does really good food and is worth a visit.

It is a little outside Keswick and there is not a lot to entertain your kids, but if you are looking for a peaceful easygoing site, thatís a good base for walking, I would highly recommend this site and would be happy to go there again.

Reviewer: Louise2202 1 review from this member

I used this site as a base for my hill walking activities around Keswick.

The site is signposted well from the main road and is very easy to find, the owners were extremely helpful and welcoming.

Pitches were unmarked but other campers were considerate with their pitching.

The facilities were excellent and sufficient, very clean and well stocked.

Would definitely recommend and would stay here again, ideal for backpackers or those who want to get away from it all.

A wonderful campsite, it's situated four miles out from Keswick and a mile from Threlkeld (which has two good pubs).

The facilities are excellent - the gents contain three shower cubicles, three toilet cubicles, urinals and washbasins.

It's very easy to find, it being close to the A66.

The site provides electric hook-ups.

There's plenty of sinks for washing up.

There's a laundry room.

There are no children's play area.

Linda was very helpful, showed us to the field straight away and we had the pick of the pitches (it being just before high season).

The site is part of a working farm - you will hear the sheep and lambs baa-ing in the morning, but I agree with the previous reviewer - much better than a standard alarm clock!

We went on a dry week so can't comment on drainage.

All in all, it's a lovely site, worth the money with decent facilities. The views of the hills are spectacular.

We will go again.
