Lovely, clean and very quiet (except for the sound of cows and sheep)

Toilets and separate shower block both very clean - we really enjoyed a nice and relaxing break and would definitely return when we next feel the need to holiday up in Kendal.

Mixed feelings about this site, there's excellent points and not so good points.

The Good Points

Lovely, friendly and helpful welcome

Stunning views of the surrounding hills & livestock

Friendly & very helpful fellow caravanners

Handy for Kendal for supplies

Concrete levellers on the pitches, as site is sloping

Clean loos, didn't use showers (used van)

Site, pretty, very well manicured & maintained

Handy green folder with lots of information in, which proved useful

Beautiful horse just over the wall to watch

The Bad Points

Pitches very small and very on top of each other, giving a hemmed in feeling

No noise policy until after 9am a bit over the top, 9am is quite late for campers, we needed water as we had sprung a leak late the night before & having been up since 6am, felt a long time to wait to get water for a brew, very silly rule.

Pitches very tight to get in and out of without going on the grass, not just us, saw others struggle too

Dog walk area, very small, with no dog poop bin, dog mess was to be bagged and then walked up the hill to the main rubbish area and thrown into heavy lidded biffa style bins, tricky while your'e trying to hold onto a dog and the bins are quite high. (also tricky to do quietly)

Cows mooing although nice for some, one morning the noise was very loud indeed, also lots of barking dogs noise late night and early morning from local farm, which was a bit annoying considering the no noise until after 9am policy

No mobile phone or 3G on 02 (expected issue) bought their wifi which constantly logged you out of your'e devise

TV signal for us was extremely poor, we ended up buying an ariel from asda.

A bit on the expensive side for the amount of facilities, but its the lake district, so I guess you're paying for that alone

Surrounding area is beautiful a real getaway, bridle paths to walk dogs along, however are quite overgrown and a bit rocky and trecherouse, so be mindful of that. The lane is quiet enough to walk along though, just the odd car and tractor.

Access roads to site are very narrow, but traffic very little coming the opposite way, so didn't pose too much of a problem.

Would we stay again? Probably, despite the issues, I would however avoid pitch 11 which is sited right next to chemical toilet disposal point and the water tap. Would also wait to see if the no noise policy before 9am was dropped.

This is a well maintained site. Slopes down from the toilets near the top to the bottom pitches, so an uphill walk to the toilets/showers. Pitches have concrete pads/slabs to locate wheels on to help with levelling. Need transport as quite out of the way. Sheep in one field and cows in the other, we could also watch some sheepdog training, which was interesting. TV reception not too great. Had to pay for wifi card which is a bit much given the price per night. Toilets, showers and pot wash were all immaculate. However, only 2 showers for the whole site which was inconvenient when it was almost full. Also only 2 toilets in Gents' and Ladies' and no clothes washing facilities.

We had a fantastic stay at this beautiful part of the country, it was so we could see friends who live in kendal. We gave them a ring to see if we could go a day early and they were very accommodatin.

Alison was lovely and very helpful, places to go etc. Alison and hubby keep the site extremely neat and tidy, the one and only thing that they were lacking was somewhere to wash our laundry, even if it was just a sink because there isn't enough room in our van sink. We went to Morecambe had a lovely walk along the front and a smashing lunch at frankie&bennys, great lunch and would definitely recommend it.

We had a day at Cartmel, what a quaint village, very reasonable parking prices. We spent an hour or two looking around the priory, we went for a cuppa and a slice of almond tart at a lovely cafe called the mallard cafe, very popular with the locals apparently, very busy place. We visited the brewery, the cheese and bakery, had some lovely tasting sessions 😊, we also went to Lancaster, we went to the Vue cinema to watch the new startrek movie, comfy seats and great film, although they charge plenty to see it and too much for popcorn, way too much. We also had some time with our friends. We love kendal and the surrounding area.

We would definitely recommend ashes site to anyone who wants a lovely quiet and relaxing holiday all that wakes you up is the sheel bas, cows moos and the birdsong. Perfect xx

Stayed here for a week recently and could not fault it at all. We were welcomed by the friendly owner and directed to our pitch. All the pitches are round the perimeter with a well kept grassy garden area in the middle. Facilities were spotless at all times. Only a few miles from Kendal and a short drive to the lakes. If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing break this site certainly fits the bill. Would certainly return if in the area again.
