We stayed at the site over the Bank Holiday weekend - first impressions were great. Friendly welcome by Thonas the manager. Gave us lots of useful information about the local area and what was going on. Pitches were spacious and level. Site facilities were immaculate - showers & toilets very clean and well maintained, operated with a key fob. Great play park for children which was away from the main site so children could make a lot of noise which did not disrupt others. Play park locked at 9pm which I felt was great as my children would have wanted to be there all night! Lovely fishing lake and great riverside walk into Bentham where there were pubs & shops etc. Family games room which is great for wet weather. I read reviews prior to staying here and was a little apprehensive about the comments about rules & regulations which were mentioned. I needn't have been - this is not the place for a rave up but we sat outside in the evening having a quiet drink with friends and there were no problems. The rules keep this site enjoyable for everybody and didn't stop us from having a lovely weekend. I feel that first impressions are usually an indication of how the site might be and in this instance they were - I would recommend this site and would visit again ( even without the children!)

A one-night stop-over on the way south from Scotland. Although this is quite a way off the motorway the detour was well worthwhile. There’s good scenery in the surrounding area and the site itself is excellent, with 5-star hotel washrooms and toilets plus the river and fishing lake. Everything is well-tended. Some on uk camp sites object to rules and regulations, but in our experience it is often those campers who tend to spoil things for others when there are no rules.

We were amazed at the number of shops and pubs in the village and nearby. We will definitely look at this for a longer stay in the future.

First time at such a large site found it a bit too sterile and regimented for our liking.

Very clean and great for kids as there is a decent park for them. There are a lot of rules to adhere too which puts a bit of a dampner on things, the worst one being no noise after 21. 30 which we found was far too early and have never come across a curfew that is so early. The toilet facilities were ok but don't think they were cleaned properly everyday as one of the female toilets had run out of sanitary bags on the Thursday and was not replenished until the Saturday.

The pitches themselves were flat, well drained and the grass was very well kept and the pitches were large and well marked out. It was a great place if used as a base for exploring the area but nothing to keep you entertained on site. The town was nice and had a couple of good pubs.

Overall not bad but not for us we prefer a livelier atmosphere

Beautifully kept site. Very big but sadly lacking in atmosphere. The pitches are more than adequate. Well drained & marked out. Toilet, showers & facilities block was spotless & well presented. Staff very welcoming too. The problem I have is we are sociable people & this is the kind of place where people arrive, set up & then sit in their caravans watching TV all weekend until it's time to leave. It's just not us. Way to many rules & regulations. CCTV watching your every move too. If your the kind of person who likes to sit out & socialise this isn't the place for you. Major wasp problem too. High Bentham isn't far & has a few pubs & shops but it's not a particularly pretty village. We ate in the Black Bull & although it wasn't the most well presented pub but the food was good & reasonably priced. One more niggle. On a personal level. We were in a tiny teardrop caravan with a gazebo & we were charged more than those with a huge twin axel caravan & awning as awnings are free & gazebos aren't. This did seem very mean.

We had a nice time but it's doubtful we would return.

This is our first visit to Riverside, Stayed three nights in August 2015, cannot find one fault with this site. Large friendly site, quiet but not too quiet. Lots of good walks. Shower blocks are amazing, really clean and fully tiled, under floor heating etc. High Bentham 10 minutes walk great pubs serving great food and yes they allow dogs. The staff at Riverside are so friendly and make you feel really welcome. Pitches are large clean and well kept, the site is kept beautifully trimmed and clean.
