Large site with a large amount of static homes. Touring pitches could do with a bit of TLC, grass uncut, weeds on hardstanding. Showers and toilets are basic - no shower curtains in cubicles so clothes get wet. Covered pot wash areas and chemical disposal areas. Newish bar/restaurant. Shop has all the basics. Good views from some pitches. When busy some of the touring pitches with awnings have cars parked in front making maneuvering difficult. Need to pay extra for wifi. Would appear to be plenty to do for children. During school holidays beware of lots of children riding around on bikes unsupervised with no road sense.

Very nice well maintained caravan park.

Stayed on a premium fully serviced pitch with small garden and seating, has enough room for a full awning plus car.

The shop on site has everything you need.

Laundry room is clean and tidy with plenty of space.

Swimming pool was lovely and clean, just a shame it's not heated.

Kids play areas were also nice and clean.

We will definitely stay here again.

Stayed in campervan for 5 nights.

Site is good for kids, and my 12yr old particularly enjoyed the swimming pool and the games room.

Toilets/showers fine.

On site shop a real gem.

Restaurant is only average, with a limited menu and average quality.

Location is obviously very isolated, and a good 30 min drive to anywhere.

Not located in lake district national park.

Kids enjoyed it though, so that's main thing.

Stayed here for 3 nights early July

As it was early season the site was quite empty which was ok.

On site shop was really expensive, had most things you needed though.

Good clean toilets and showers.

Couple of play areas one for the smaller kids and one for the old ones.

Overall very pleased and would stay again if they sort out the pool. They had it open though was so cloudy you could not see the bottom, dangerous in my opinion!

This site had the most spacious, well-equipped and clean facilities we had ever seen at any site and there were multiple toilet/shower blocks with ample washing-up facilities. Nice extra touches like a free service allowing you to freeze ice-packs. The staff were very helpful. The site was pleasant with a magnificent view of the Pennines. Would recommend to anybody, especially families.

We have just returned from a weekend in a wigwam at Wild Rose Park Ormside. We (being my husband and I and our 6 yr old son) had a wonderful time. Even though it was the coldest weekend this year and there was snow outside where it was -3 overnight, we were lovely and snug in our very warm wigwam We had all the facilities we expected, including microwave, toaster, TV, cutlery, crockery etc. All we needed was bedding, food and wash stuff. The washrooms were relatively near to the wigwams in the touring caravan area next door. They are very large and plentiful and had lovely warm showers. They maybe do need a bit of a spruce up but its all just cosmetic and functionally were perfect.

The Cock a hoop bar was brilliant. The food was lovely and the staff were so friendly and welcoming, we spent both fri and sat nights in there (which is unheard of for us), they even had a chess board set us so we had great fun teaching our 6 yr old how to play and then subsequently being beaten by him . There are 2 parks on site, one of which was directly opposite wigwam 1 so great if you have kids to want to keep an eye on. Again both parks could do with a spruce up, a bit of a lick of paint and generally a hug but it is January and perhaps they have plans to do this when before the main season starts again. Functionally both parks were entertaining for the kids, safe and tidy. Although it is in Cumbria the site is not in the Lake District National Park and it is a good 40 V 60 min drive to a decent area of the park, just in case youre considering this as accommodation for a park visit, but there are stunning views all around this site and plenty of countryside walking and places to visit in the near vicinity and we found that generally not being in the park meant everything was that much more reasonably priced. Up on the tops of the fells we saw some of the most stunning views of the Lake to the right, the Yorkshire Dales to the left and the Lancashire flats in front of usV all covered in snow, we felt like we were quite literally stood on top of the world. On a final note, the is also an outdoor swimming pool and paddling pool and general stores but as we were out of season these were closed. We loved our stay so much we booked another weekend in June. Cant wait to go back :)
