Reviewer: Blupton 8 reviews from this member

Fabulous site, very helpful staff, great shower/toilet blocks.
 
Location is on the edge of the lake district and so you need to travel a few miles to get to Lake Windermere and beyond.
 
Definitely would visit this site again, but will perhaps go nearer to Ambleside next time.

We spent six nights at this site.  This campsite is very much a contrast to many other CCC sites.  It is large (350 pitches) and has a bar on site.  The whole site is beautifully landscaped and one gets the impression that one is on a much smaller site because it is divided into small areas.  As usual, the loos and showers are superb.  There are launderette facilities and drying lockers for wet walking gear.  Pitches are level and well-drained, if a bit stony.
 
The site attracts many holiday-makers, as opposed to dedicated campers, and they don't seem to respect the 'quiet after nine' rule.  Kicking out time on Friday and Saturday nights can be quite noisy. 
 
It is a little way out of Windermere itself and there are no shops nearby, but the site shop sells the basics.
 
I will definitely go back to this site, despite my comments about some of the other residents, because it is almost impossible to fault in any other way.

A well set out site in a lovely setting miles from anywhere. Staveley is a couple of miles down the busy dual carriageway which is ok but if you like a night out drinking like we do then it is probably too dangerous to attempt the wobble back. However there is a pub on site, the whistling pig, which does the job.
Good situation for visiting Bowness, Ambleside, Hawkshead and of course Windermere.Toilet blocks were expectantly clean but there was an awful drain smell as you approached them when we were there.We went to Bowness for a meal one night and returned after 11pm to find the barriers down and had to settle down for the night outside the gates, which was different I suppose but rules are rules.

Reviewer: Faulknerf1 8 reviews from this member

Just spent a weekend at this site and it was lovely - only sorry we couldn't stay longer!  Good mix of all types of units and lots of friendly campers.
It's quite a large site but very well spaced out and plenty of toilets, showers, etc to cope.  Toilet and shower blocks spotlessly clean.
Wardens were very pleasant and really helpful.  Small bar that does food and takeaway on site - but all still lovely and quiet come 11pm.
Took 11 year old daughter who said the play area was a bit young, but then hardly saw her and is now asking when we can go back! 
We will certainly be visiting this site again.

Reviewer: Imellor 5 reviews from this member

I agree with previous reviews regarding excellent quality of facilities, however no one has mentioned space. We were crammed in like sardines, so much so that the warden paced out 6ft from the adjacent units to fit us in and left no room for our car. A family from Ireland were placed 3ft from the bins! For this reason we will not be returning.

We spent a week here and it is a fabulous site.  The facilities are spotless, plentiful and warm.  Perfect!  The bar on site is nice, the food is very good and they do take aways too if you are that way inclined.  No smoking policy throughout the bar & family room.  The pitches are nicely sized, and the site location itself is very good for the Western Lakes.  We will definitely go back again!
