Great site with very good facilities. Friendly staff with good local knowledge. 3 pubs within easy walking distance that serve food. Magnificent views. A good choice of accommodation, tent, caravan, yurts, huts, mobile home.

Great campsite though it gets a little like a car park at peak times. Love the informality of everything. Now got more electric hook ups so becoming more popular at weekends so plan ahead. Only gripe really is the 5 booking on line fee.

Have camped here a few times and a fabulous site with friendly helpful staff. Great local pubs serving tasty food. Perfect for climbing Scaffel pike etc. What more can you ask for. Oh and there's a drying room, to dry boots and clothes. Just in case the weather isn't on your side. Back there in August.

Friendly welcome from National Trust staff and pointed out where to pitch. Details had been left on the door with a map provided too but we had personal service having arrived after 3pm when shop was open. We thought that was when you had to arrive as it is not very clear from the website - but other people seemed to arrive at all times. Would have ben useful to know where water points were on arrival as it was a long way to carry it to our campervan once we had pitched - only two water points at shower blocks. Fabulous views all around and we did walks in all directions without having to drive anywhere. Imagine it would be very busy in season with over 200 pitches but lovely and quiet in March - only a few campervan pitches but they seemed to be flexible at this time of year for those who didn't want hook up. There were even some brave tent campers. Website says you can only book 24 hours in advance which seems silly considering you have to pay the full amount then too - surely most people having paid will turn up.

Several pubs in walking distance and all dog friendly - completely different feel to them so depends what you like. In fact we each preferred the food in different ones! Large toilet and shower blocks which were clean and warm - could do with a floor mop/squeegee to leave it dry for those following you. I'm sure we will be back but not in high season !

Great Langdale means Very Long Valley - this is a clue to the approach road that is officially graded B but is almost single track with passing spaces. There is a good reason why the site does not allow caravans and large motorhomes will find access quite exciting too.

That said, the site's setting at the end of the valley is stunning with the fells rising steeply on every side. Plenty of trees for shelter but also plenty of midges on our visit. This probably wasn't helped by the hot, humid weather and rather long grass.

The staff gave us a friendly welcome. Reception has a shop selling basic food and camping gear. There is a small Co-op back up the valley otherwise shopping is in Ambleside.

It is a large site but well broken up into sections with two large toilet blocks. These are functional rather than decorative but kept clean and the water was always hot. Drying rooms available. No mobile reception or wi-fi. Bring some change for payphones!

There are two pubs both serving meals within walking distance but we didn't try either so can't comment. Other folk were saying nice but expensive.

The walking, climbing and biking is all excellent straight from the site. Otherwise there is very little to do. Wray Castle (Nat Trust) is a car drive away and primary school child friendly with lots of activities.

Beautiful location. Stunning mountains all around. Plenty of showers which were always available with hot water when we wanted them. Well stocked shop. The children were especially fond of the morning croissants, bacon baguettes and freshly baked bread which were available. Good walks in the area. No fancy facilities but some good honest pubs in nearby locality (if a bit pricey!)
