Our 4th visit to this site & the fact that we keep coming back (and will continue to do so) speaks volumes.

The site was, as on previous visits, clean and friendly with spacious pitches so you don't feel as though you're living in your neighbour's pocket.

The shop on site is well stocked and staff are friendly and always on-hand to help out (had a problem with wasps and this was dealt with immediately).

The play areas are ok but would benefit from more equipment as they get full once there's more than a handful of kids on site, but this didn't bother ours too much as the site is very family friendly so they were able to play on their scooters in front of the pitch or play football on the grass.

There is a little restaurant/pub on site (meals are a little on the pricey side for what you get but nothing extortionate) which is handy as the site is not within walking distance of any towns.

Overall, very pleased and will continue to come back.

Firstly be aware the site is not at Windermere which is a good twenty minute drive away. The nearest place of any size is Kendal.

Large site, somewhat expensive site fees, but we have never had a problem getting a pitch. Access road to the site is fine & no problems passing with a caravan. There is a small shop and the site has its own bar. There's a Morrisons at Kendal and a Booths at Windermere for supplies.

Staveley - a big village - is the nearest place and there's a nice walk over the fields to Staveley from the site. If you have a dog, it will need lifting over some of the stiles. Staveley has a Spar, a couple of pubs and a chippy as well as a large bike shop and the Hawkshead Brewery. The public bar is always worth a visit at the brewery and it is dog friendly - try the Brodie's Prime!

Although this is The Lakes, there are some nice walks from Staveley - Potter Fell, Reston Scar and the Cumbria Way along the River Kent. There are footbridges at Staveley & about a mile south of the village so the river walk can be circular

One of the best small big sites I have stayed on. The staff are not at all officious as is the case with some other club sites I have stayed on but they keep the place immaculate and are always helpful.

The on site bar may not suit everyone but the beers are excellent and very welcome as it is quite a walk to the nearest alternative in Staveley (the beer hall at Hawkshead brewery in Staveley is worth a visit though).

Plenty of wildlife on site, rabbits, Pheasants etc. Doesn't feel like it is as big a site as it is.

Three toilet blocks with staggered cleaning times is helpful.

A beautifully maintained site with staff that are willing and eager to please. Shower facilities are extremely modern and well maintained and are included in the price of your stay.

Dogs are welcome on site but not in any of the covered facilities, leaving you to seek solace in the nearby village of Stavley where they are welcome almost everywhere.

Windermere is not as close as is suggested on the owners website. It's a good 20 minute drive if the roads are clear, longer if there is a fair amount of holiday traffic.

There is an on site dog walking area, though it is very small, but just outside the site is a wooded area with a public footpath that goes on for a good few miles through the woodlands and streams.

The on site shop/reception area stocks only the bare minimum so it's best to get directions to the nearest shops or come stocked!

We've put N/A for child friendliness as we don't have children but there were some on site, although they were extremely quiet!

We have arrived back from a great week at windermere site, the staff we very helpful and pleasant. The weather was very rainy but we enjoyed the week as all the facilities were very well kept, better then some dearer sites our hook up was not long enough so they lent us a extension no trouble to them at all.

In all we will be back to a great site that the caravan and camping club should be very proud

We had a lovely walk to staverly where we got the bus to windermere. The pub in the village looked very nice. We will go next time we are there

Just back after six nights at this superb site with our F. C

The pitches are level and very well maintained,

The toilet and shower blocks were spotless as were the dish washing facilities.

The on site shop is very well stocked, also there is a small bar with a family room (we used this on two occasions) the food was very good.

The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them, we were made very welcome.

Stavley is not far away and is in walking distance, with two good pubs and the hawkshead brewery.

This was our first visit to this site but it will not be our last.
