The location for the hook ups is amazing as it is just off the beach. I adore the sea and as we stayed at a blustery time of year it was great to watch the waves crashing and listening to it at night was wonderfully soporific! Even in November the cafe/shop and pub were both open everyday and there are a couple of decent restaurants in St Bees. We went to The Manor and had a lovely meal there. It's worth making the effort to check out the chapel as they had an interesting find there in the 80's that is on display. There is a train station also and a trip to Carlisle fills a day nicely. Some negatives now. The toilet block is bizarrely placed and it did make me feel uncomfortable visiting it in my bathrobe. The showers were hot but not cleaned during our stay and didn't drain properly (yuck). Also, I would imagine during busy periods the facilities would be completely inadequate. The waste point was part of the shower block but was not lit, which made it impossible for me to use it before we left early in the morning. It was fine for a couple of days at a quiet time of the year but I wouldn't rush back.

Lovely site and helpful staff.

The toilet block was a good walk away from our plot which had water and electric. Cleanliness was lacking in the ladies. The two showers share one plug hole which did not run freely, not nice sharing someone else's dirty water. The two toilets were not very clean. There were sinks to wash at and one had a baby changing shelf thing. The Crabby One says the gents loos were pretty clean.

Just outside the site is a lovely play park with public loos (didn't use them) there is even a dog loo area - brilliant idea. The beach was lovely and clean, it has won an award this year (don't know about other years).

The coffee shop over the other side of the car park was very busy, the Crabby One says it is very reasonably priced (he pays). The hotel on the other hand charged us 8 on the night for our drinks but the next afternoon it was 7. 50 - that will be queried tonight! There were several tv's with sky football on (if you like that sort of thing), two pool tables (mainly used by children) and one tv showing a film (I think).

There are some lovely walks in the area.

Stayed for one night so that we could be up early to vist the RSPB sea bird viewpoints so we did not have time to use all the facilities. Although the site at first glance seems full of static caravans it is a static caravan park! Don't be discouraged if you are a tourer - your site will probably be near the sea, the staff are pleasant and helpful, the toilets and showers are hygenic and warm and the site is quiet and in a beautiful part of the country.

I did read other reviews before booking and by and large they got it about right. This is a big static site with space for a few tents and tourers. The hardstandings for the tourers are in a fabulous spot facing right onto the beach only yards away. There is a narrow promenade between the site and the beach and you can pass away most mornings just watching the dozens of C2C walkers starting their trips.

So the situation is great and if you have dogs and/or children it's a great place with miles of sea and sand at low tide, lots of space and a great playground. There is a hotel/pub very close by but the meals are basic pub fare. There is also a tearoom/shop but it's stock of supplies is minimal. St Bees is a 15 min walk but there's not much more there -4 pubs and a post office which doesn't stock much more than the tearoom. So go with supplies or be prepared to unhook an travel into Whitehaven or get the train (not on Sundays).

But the big disappointment is the toilet facilities. They are a bit of a walk from the tourers and the dishwashing facities were filthy and had no hot water. The toilets and showers were as bad. We were there 3 nights and they were not cleaned once. I have seen worse but not many.

So overall nearly very nice. We might go back but will use the motorhome facilities if we do as there is water on each pitch.

At 18 per night it wasn't the cheapest either.

A fantastic site. Had a pitch over looking the sea right next door to the beach and gate straight onto path. Hotel near by which serves nice meals. I though it was great value for money but camping for a samll backpackers tent was expensive. Basic toilets and showers could have done with a clean but have seen a lot lot worse.

I always had this notion of wild camping/ caravanning on a beach, so with this site I finally got my wish with the inclusion of fresh water and an electric hookup as a bonus. We got here during the Scottish school holidays and it was quite, so I can't comment on when the English hols start around 18th July, main things that may effect you, shopping is best done before you come or in nearby Whitehaven where they have a wonderful Indian takeaway Indian spice try it you won't be disappointed, the site is very dog friendly and being on the beach our dog just ran her legs off, note that sand is only available at low tide so check tide charts for low tides to plan your beach walk, there is also a coastal walk which started right where my van was pitched so plenty to watch, it goes the 7 miles to Whitehaven and there is a train which will bring you back to St Bees, another small point to watch for is the shower block which in my opinion is a wee walk to empty gray water and chemical toilet, also men's block had 3 large disabled size toilets and 3 large showers however watch what shower you use there is only one takeaway drain and you could be standing in other folks muck if you pick the last on the right, all in all great site, great position ( NO AWNINGS OR CANOPIES) on the touring pitches as it restricts the static vans view, the dog loved it and so did we, T. V poor reception except the BBC channels and T mobile signal good I use this for tethering on internet, I write this as I'm sitting here looking out at this glorious beach, enjoy your stay
