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

Stayed here for two nights.

The Tent Field is a long way from the facilities block. It seems odd that the toilets/showers are situated in the middle of the static caravan park and not near the people who need it.

On the subject of the facilities block. It is not the cleanest place after about midday and ran out of toilet roll both days. It appears to be cleaned in the morning only.

There is good laundry facilities and two washing up sinks with hot and cold water.

The tent field is on a bit of a slope but careful pitching can help deal with that.

The views are lovely and the beach is only 5mins walk away and is great for an evening walk.

We did not eat in the village but the local store has most things campers need.

Overall the site is a bit tired and could do with better toilet/Shower facilities

We enjoyed our one-night stay here, but it could have been better. The washroom had hot and cold water and was clean, but only had one sink. In the evening both the men's and ladies' toilets had no toilet paper and needed cleaning. However, at 10am they were clean and well stocked. Although the tent field is not next to the sea, it did have a limited view of it, and excellent views of the low hills around. The field was very level, with good length grass, and excellent tent pegging texture. There was some rubbish left in the field by other campers, which we tidied up. There were four other tents in the field with us overnight on a Monday to Tuesday. There were lots of caravans nearby, with one visitor generously allowing most of the site to enjoy or not enjoy his music until 10pm on the first night. Dog walkers walked through the tent field with dogs not on leads, and one mobile home resident walked through the field to the somewhat unsightly tip at the other end with his wheelbarrow. This site gets a rating of 8 out of 10 for value for money despite costing £18 for two people, a small tent and a car, only because there is a shortage of campsites close to the sea in Cumbria.

After reading some of the reviews about this site, I must admit, I started to panic! However, my fears were not as needed as I thought they would be.

The campsite is not the poshest of the campsites we have been too in the past, however we had a pleasant stay.

Yes, the toilets/showers/elsan point/laundry block is a tad too far from the Touring/Tent Fields. But as long as you plan your visit there it just becomes part of your daily routine. The staff do attempt to keep the showers and toilet blocks clean, but when they have some clientèle that appear to not want to help keep those facilities clean/rubbish free, then they are fighting a losing battle.

The campsite is in the majority full of statics, some of these are privately owned and the owners were really friendly people.

The beach location is wonderful and we were lucky to have the best weather of the year so far. Only downside, again is to people visiting the beach who appear to have a lack of understanding of how rubbish bins work!

Nearest shops are in Whitehaven, so make sure you plan your shopping trips around that point. The beach shop is expensive and does not stock much. Nor does the General Store in the village.

Lots of lovely walks, and from the touring pitch you can watch the Coast to Coast Walkers setting off or completing their journey.

If you are like us and have dogs, quick note, most people on the beach let their dogs off the lead, so if your dog(s) find this stressful and do stay on their leads, take this into consideration when walking on the sands.

All in all, a pleasant stay and not as worrying as I thought it would be after all the bad reviews.

We've used this site several times and have never been disappointed. If you want 'posh' facilities and entertainment laid on, this isn't the site for you. On the other hand, if you love a quiet, unspoilt beach, space to pitch your tent without someone pitching on top of you and unlimited free hot water in the showers, you won't be let down!

The site is, essentially, full of static caravans with a few tourers but the campsite is situated away from these and bordered by fields full of sheep.

Only a tiny moan about the toilet/shower block: it's a 3 minute walk from the tent and can get a bit sandy if the site is busy. It's obviously cleaned on a regular basis though but would maybe benefit from a mop and bucket for in between cleans.

The beach is two minutes walk away and is made up of large smooth pebbles and, when the tide is out, huge expanses of sand. Five minutes walk through the static caravans brings you to a children's playground and a small shop/cafe which sells essentials and newspapers along with delicious Hartley's ice-cream. The cafe is very reasonable and sells home cooked meals and cake.

If you need a supermarket, Whitehaven is a 15 minute drive. It also has a lovely harbour with an excellent fish and chip shop (crosby's) where, if you ask, they'll wrap your food well and it'll still be hot when you get back to your tent!

All in all, we'll always go back at least once a year as the location is amazing!
