This was our third visit to this site, with our Folding Camper. Absolutely love it, it is one of my most favourite sites. Easy to get to, good level hardstanding pitches. Toilets and showers are always clean.

I think there are new wardens, as I didn't recognise them from last year, but they gave us a lovely warm welcome and always gave you a wave if you passed them round the site. The shop is stocked well.

We popped in at Plumgarth's Farm Shop and bought some of their sausages and a Victoria sponge cake, both delicious.

We didn't use the bar on site, but we did have a walk to the Eagle & Child at Stavely, takes about 40 mins and is about a 4 mile round trip. But is a lovely walk. We had a meal in there on our last night, it's great as you can take the dog in the bar and the food is lovely, good hot home cooking.

We had a day out in Grasmere, which is lovely.

Weather was a bit mixed and we had some heavy downpours.

The dog walk is good and if the sheep aren't in the field you can let your dog off the lead for a good old run!

We are hoping to return again, later in the year.

Just returned today from 2 night stay for New Year. 2nd year running we have spent New Year at this site. It's one of our favourites. Despite the wet weather it doesn't dampen (excuse the pun) our time in the van. Site suffered from slight flooding but as usual the wardens did a fantastic job in trying to drain the pitches. Some suffered more than others. I can highly recommend this site for Christmas and New Year. Many vans decorated with lights, Santas & trees. Entertainment in marquee for New Year with some folks braving the elements and welcoming in the New Year in their awnings. Very friendly site with great wardens. A credit to the C &CC!

My first visit to a camping and caravan club site and I was very impressed. This was my first stop on my way to tour Scotland and it was a great start to the holiday. The people are very friendly and cant do enough to help and the pub on site was run by a great landlady who let me take the dog in but I was told that this was only possible as it wasn't busy. The site is spotless and the pub is great with local ales served and a real friendly atmosphere. I'm still on my trip as I write this review as all I can say is that the other 3 campsites that I have visited since Windermere could learn a thing or two about how to run a great site from the staff at Windermere. I liked it so much that I may well stop off again on the way home. Well done Windermere !

We spent a good weekend here, 2 of us in a caravan and 3 in a tent.

Despite it being a huge site, it really does not feel too big, as there are lots of different areas. There is a good children’s play area and the loo and shower block was kept nice and clean.

The bin areas could have done with being emptied a bit more often, and it is a shame that they only accept recycling at the entrance to the site. (I know it is not too far to walk with your bottles, but obviously some people thought it was, so perhaps having crates at all the bin areas would assist more people to recycle. )

We used the on site pub for a meal as the weather was so awful. Children are not allowed in the pub side, but are in the dining room side. This was a bit grim in terms of décor and atmosphere, but it certainly was convenient for tired, soggy families. The adult meals were all around £10, the kids were £4.

Obviously the location of this site is the real draw, although you cannot see any lakes, they are on the doorstep.

This campsite was nice to look at and the toilet facilities etc were good. Unfortunately, what let it down was the attitude of the staff and the rigidity of the sites rules.

On arrival we were subjected to very serious conversations about the shape of our tent and also how close we had camped to our neighbours. I agree with safety rules but the way we were spoken to was not pleasant.

It was raining during our stay and so we tried out the on site pub. Please don't make the same mistake. Very over-priced poorly cooked food. Again more rules - no kids allowed on the soft seated side. Families were subjected to a very grim area with TVs blasting and canteen tables.

We are usually very easy to please but can say we would not recommend nor visit here again mainly due to poor welcome. We have even gone as far to cancel camping and caravanning membership in fear they are all that rigid. Was also very pricey for no electric.

This is our umpteenth visit to this handy site in the heart of the lakes. Its as you would expect, plenty of space. The staff are helpful and friendly and guide you to your pitch on arrival. The toilets and facilities are excellent. Clean and well maintained.

There is a restaurant on site and a shop. But be aware that they only take cash or cheques, no cards. It was a bit of a pain for us as we wanted to eat there but had to go and find a cash machine - almost 6 miles away. So we found a pub nearby and ate there instead.

We found the site quiet and tranquil, its also very close to several paths and walks, so ideal if you want to walk from the caravan door.

We are regulars there and would recommend it to anyone
