This is a lovely clean well laid out and well run site. Approximately 18 Static vans and I think about 20 touring vans and a camping area. Its a family site with a play area for the children. The facilities are extremely clean and are cleaned daily, even over the Bank Holiday. Its good to visit a site like this and listen to the children playing. The only down side is the noise from the A66, its quite loud at times, not intrusive but there. I would still recommend this site to anyone looking for a good family site with good facilities.

An excellent site in easy reach of all the lake district.

The toilets were always spotless, free showers with lots of hot water. Not the push button type.

Owners of the site are very friendly and helpful.

Probably the best site we have been on.

Village pub not open but the Sportsman a mile away was excellent.

Great little site. Clean facilities, showers were free with plenty of hot water. Lovely feel to the site, not too big. Children had a great little play park. Laundry facilities were excellent, clothes got clean and dry on first attempt! The owners were very friendly and gave us a bin bag as there is always something you forget!

The site has a freezer for your ice blocks. Washing up facilities were excellent. A quiet site generally, though there is some road noise from A66, however that means you have great access around.

We will be back!

Just spent 6 nights here, super little site, adequate spotless facilities, laundry room, Very easy to get too. Friendliest site owners I've encountered for ages had a problem with a snapped bolt on my stabiliser lads took it into their garage drilled it out supplied a new bolt and charged me pennies for the job. Excellent location for walks up Skiddaw, Helvellyn, Ullswater and Derwent water. Dog friendly and kids playground. Superb value for money at 18 a night. Will definitely visit again.

We stayed with you for 7 nights recently while we were exploring the Lake District and we thought we'd leave you a review that you can put up on your website, if you feel inclined.

We were there in August with our tent which we pitched on nice firm level ground in a sheltered area of the site, under a line of trees. Whilst there is some noise from the nearby road it didn't bother us at all.

That main prerequisite of a camp site, the loos we found to be exemplary. I wish more campsites maintained their facilities to such high standards. The free showers were always hot, no matter what time of day, always clean, and there was never a queue, there were even free hairdryers in both men's and women's areas. The loo roll always available, and never on the floor, the mirrors were clean and the air clear and fresh, very impressive! The hand soap dispensers were always full and paper towels were always available, the bins were never over-flowing either. Our only quibble is that we would have liked a few more hooks to hang clothes on when in the shower.

The washing up facilities were maintained to the same high standard and again there was always hot water. The area also contains clothes washing and drying facilities which while we didn't use them seemed to work well for other people who did. We feel it would be useful to provide somewhere to freeze ice-packs for campers, but if that is the only gripe it can't be much. Another plus is that in the washing up room there are books to be borrowed and much local information to be gathered.

Children are catered for with a nicely set out play area with a bark chipping base and things to clamber about and swing on, and even a Wendy House.

The site is also blessed with full 4G phone and Internet, very useful for getting weather forecasts on your 'phone! Behind the site is a dog walking area and a bin for waste.

We had a very pleasant stay, exploring the Lakes. Ullswater is really just down the road, Derwent Water is very easily accessible and Thirlmere is a fabulous, peaceful and beautiful lake a little further off, Beckses proved to be a great base for exploring the whole area.

This is a great site, we were put on a grass caravan pitch as the tent site was full but it was great, quieter part of the caravan park and sunshine all day! Yeh we had a prefect week of hot sunshine! Fab!. Now the two gents that run the site were polite, helpful and would enough a chat with you and tell you anything about the surrounding area and where to visit, all the facilities were well placed water taps etc etc and the toilet blocks and showers were always very clean and well stocked, they were what I'd call old school and by that I mean they were old but perfectly kept, very clean and of a high quality which has stood the test of time. The morning birds and a little road noise may wake a light sleeper but weren't a problem to us, the site is perfectly placed to go either way into the lakes or to the motorway to go to either north or south lakes.

We walked skiddaw one day and parked in Keswick footie Carpark 3 which is great value and you put it in a honesty box a great way to sponsor the football club get there before 9am as it fills up quickly. Scaffell pike 25 minute drive to park in seathwaite free on the grass verge but get there before 10am as it gets busy or 3 in the farmers field.

We walked to the local pub and booked a table on a Thursday which is steak night 2 steaks and a bottle of wine which was very nice for 25 and the food was great so worth a visit.

All in all this site was perfect we will return if camping in the lakes as 23 per night EHU on bank holiday in the school holidays in the lakes was a bargain, I rate this campsites now in my top 3, go visit you won't be disappointed.
