Great location, near Kesick. Not far off the M6.

Busy when we were there so they opened the 'overflow' field. Plenty of space. That field was a little bit on a slope but if you stay in the normal camping field it is ideal.

Facilities clean, warm water. Unfortunately very low pressure so it was a bit of a trickle of water.

Excellent views!

Good pricing.

This campsite has an enviable location a few miles outside Keswick, and truly spectacular views (from the non-EHU tent field, anyway -- from the caravan and EHU fields the views are still lovely but not QUITE as impressive).

It will get busy in peak periods but the facilities remained beautifully clean (and with no, or very short, queues) throughout our week's stay, even through torrential rain and mud. There are laundry facilities but you have to get the key to the room (which involves hoping that the person before you has returned it).

Friendly welcome on arrival and lots of places to visit and things to do in the local area.

Lovely site with very friendly helpful staff, Linda showed up to the camping field on arrival and gave us a choice of two pitches to choose from one on each side of the electric hook up field. The facilities were heated which was really nice. Facilities lovely and clean and never too busy. Pot washing facilities were under cover which was good as for the first few day's of our visit it rained constantly. The kids loved the fact that a chicken came to visit us at our pitch and my daughter who loves sheep was able to see the sheep in the fields and on the farm. The only downside is that there is no children's play area which I knew before booking and not many sites in the area seem to have a play area. No room on the electric pitch to play ball as a path runs through the middle. We visited a lovely play area for children of all ages at Fitz Park in Keswick which was open all the time we were there at 8. 30pm one night. Quiet site no noise on a night time. Beautiful part of the country with lots of things to do in both good and bad weather. I would stay at this lovely site again.

Just got back from a great weekend at this site. Had a warm welcome from Linda and was taken to a decent sized pitch near the toilet block. The shower block was nice and clean with lots of hot water, no queues, despite there being quite a few visitors over the weekend. Had a nice walk along the old railway line that runs close to the campsite. Great pub nearby in Threlkeld, the Horse & Farrier, excellent food, might be advisable to pre book though, it was extremely busy when we went and they just managed to squeeze us in.

In a nutshell. A great holiday was had. Lovely countryside. Friendly owners. The site can be a bit boggy after the rain, which it did a lot of. Great showers, warm toilet block and very clean. Wifi at 10 a week. No kids play area or dedicated dog walking spot but neither seemed to mind. Very quiet on a night time, although it states no noise after 11pm it was quiet after 10pm. Lots to do in Keswick and the surrounding area's.

This is, generally, a lovely site in a beautiful location. The family who run the farm and site were friendly and helpful, but totally unobtrusive, and there is a delightful lack of the usual signs and posters telling campers what to do or not to do.

The camping field doesn't have electric hook-ups, although these are available elsewhere. It's fairly open but with trees round the perimeter which would provide a little shelter or shade, depending on the time of year. It's on quite a slope, but it's perfectly possible to find a comfortable spot and it doesn't matter which way you face - the views are just amazing in every direction. The slope probably means it would drain reasonably well, although it wasn't as issue when I was there. There is one drinking water tap at the top of the field, near the gate which leads to the rest of the site, including the facilities blocks.

The main block is heated (overheated, even in early April! But mostly comfortable) and has, in the ladies, 4 loos, 3 showers, basins, hand dryer and power points. These were kept as spotless as it's possible to keep anything on a farm by committed and friendly staff, everything was kept well-stocked and were very well maintained. The older, original block was open in addition during my visit and, although it was kept very clean, was definitely the second choice. The showers are push-button types and are not temperature adjustable. In the main block, they stay on for a decent length of time but in the older block, it's two or three seconds - very annoying. The temperature of the showers was far too hot, except for one evening when they were not heated at all. As soon as the issue of cold showers was raised, Linda was immediately on hand to try to resolve the problem, checking with customers and explaining what had happened. Exemplary customer service. However, when hot water was restored, the showers returned to just short of boiling! Even at a quiet time, mid-week in early April, it was necessary to wait for a shower at times.

There are plenty of walks directly from the site, which is great, given how difficult, rare and expensive parking spaces can be in this part of the world. The choice is wide and varied, from a gentle stroll to straight up some of the biggest hills in the area. Lovely to then return to a barbecue (which are permitted, with care), a glass of something and a great view of where you've just been. Keswick is close by for shopping and supplies.

The site could do with having just a bit more information available - a map, weather forecast (no phone signal on O2), emergency phone numbers etc. There really isn't anything.

The price was very reasonable, the location is excellent, staff great and facilities clean and reliable (if hot!). I would return at a quiet time and would recommend.
