All touring pitches were close to main block, which housed a well stocked shop, information centre, , laundry, really lovely staff and fabulous bathrooms. There were two loos, with sinks and hand dryers and 4 key operated bathrooms with loo, sink, shower, shelf and door pegs for clothes. Really clean and user friendly. 10/10 for re-cycling too as there were bins for everything, but all clearly labelled.
On top of this, it was a very short and scenic walk into Kirkby Lonsdale. Now I've found it, can't wait to visit again.
An extremely well placed and well run site. Staff were extremely helpful, showers impeccably clean and great rooms with loo, sink and shower-great for getting showered with the kids (4 and 4months. Beautifully kept and just a short stroll to devils bridge and the town.
The shop sold gorgeous fresh bread and everything in the shop was reasonably priced- not a rip off like many campsites. We have stayed on many sites and for us, a family with young children this site is the best we have stayed on.
Close by to rivers to explore and paddle in.
The wardens were friendly and able to advise us on local walks and the best parts of the site for our 4 year old to ride her bike. We will definitely return. Thank you woodclose for a fabulous holiday.
Just returned from a few days at this lovely campsite. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly showing us where all the facilities were.
The pitches have ample space for awnings and a car and the site is very well looked after. EHU Water and TV Aerial points are on each pitch.
The shower/toilets are huge and very clean there are 5 or 6 rooms with a shower, washbasin and toilet in each which feels much more private - this layout was the best yet.
Lovely peaceful site we never experienced any noise.
The lovely walk into Kirby Lonsdale took about 10/15 minutes on a nice quiet lane - no traffic apart from when passing Devils Bridge where bikers meet, mostly at weekends.
Kirby Lonsdale is a lovely town with nice shops, tea rooms and pubs/restaurants. We ate at the Snooty Fox which was a nice pub meal, Platos which was excellent and The Sun Inn which was also very good.
To sum it up Woodclose Caravan Park is in a prime location to visit so many lovely places and is exceptionally well looked after. We will definitely be returning as often as possible.
Not a lot to say really, apart from this is a site I can highly recommend. If your into camping this site has something for everyone, touring 'vans, static's, wigwams & tents.
The site it's self is well laid out, clean and well maintained, the showers ( with ample hot water 24/7), toilets, laundry and pot wash areas are modern and kept spotlessly clean, to the front of the shower block, is the reception desk and site shop, where the staff are friendly and helpful
There is ample space for kids to play and in the centre of the site is a medium sized picnic / kids play area with benches, tables and kids climbing frames etc.
Wi-fi is available on site but isn't free( £6 for 48hrs), but no worries with tv reception, for those that want it, as each pitch has it's own aerial socket to plug you into the sites system, also as well as having electric hook up each pitch has it's own water tap too
A 10 - 15 minute walk away is the market town of kirkby lonsdale, here you'll find dog friendly pubs, restaurants, supermarkets, an excellent chip shop, even a 'proper' sweet shop as well as some fantastic veiws of the surrounding area
A short car ride away is lake windermere and all the pleasures of the steam cruisers up and down the lake, again I would recommend taking one of these cruise's and call into Bowness or Ambleside.
The only minor draw back is that there is no 'dedicated' dog walk but it really is only an very minor niggle as there are a couple of public bridle paths just outside the site gates
This site is definitely on our 'will' return to list
Just spent two nights during the half term in a Wigwam at Woodclose. The site is mainly statics and lodges, plus a touring field, however tucked away to one side of the site is an area with seven wooden wigwams, plus four tent pitches.
The wigwam area is sufficiently secluded not to feel like you are on a large site, and there are fields and woods to one side, and we could hear owls hooting in the night. The Wigwams (and I assume tents) have their own modern toilet block which is key accessed, and consists of separate cubicles each with a toilet, sink, hand dryer and shaving point. These are modern and very nice for a campsite! You can borrow a firepit to have a fire outside your wigwam, but I don't think you're allowed one anywhere else on site.
In the centre of the site is the reception, well stocked shop, laundry, pot wash and main shower and toilet block. The showers are in individual shower rooms which are code accessed.
There is a play area in front of the shop with a new looking climbing frame and slide, and a table tennis table (which seeing as it was blowing a gale when we arrived seemed a little optimistic!). There didn't seem to be anywhere for ball games though.
Staff were friendly and helpful, and the site was very tidy and well kept, especially as it was the last week of their season when we were there.
There are several walks direct from the site, including a short stroll down to Devil's Bridge.
There were no brave soles in tents while we were there, and the tent area looked quite boggy.
All in all, a well looked after site, with good facilities. For us though, the large number of static vans detracted a little from the feel of the site.
