We visit this site on a regular basis and find it to be outstanding. The site is very well maintained. The owners are both friendly and helpful in every respect. We also find the payment system (by envelope) very convenient. The shower and toilets are clean and tidy. All in all we think this site is a little gem.

We have just returned home after another wonderful peaceful stay at Riverside. The site just gets better and better, and is a credit to John & Dawn (the owners).

The facilities are always spotless and so practical. The unique Envelope Payment system is a real time saver when you arrive at the site, when all you want is to get set up and relax with a brew.

Unlike the previous reviewer, we don't mind getting out of the car to open the gate.

We have been visiting Riverside for over 10 years and love the area and its peaceful location in relation to the nearby villages and the Lake District.

We look forward to our next visit in June.

The campsite didn't quite live up to its glowing website description. The facilities were minimal - one shower and one toilet. Each housed in a tiny wooden garden shed, although heated, they were clearly difficult to keep clean. We were intrigued by the request to place our payment in the envelope provided and 'post' it in the on site box for the owner's attention - clearly no need to queue at a reception desk. Just as well as there wasn't one! Whilst we appreciate that a site should be gated for security; constant exit and entrance in and out of the car is tedious; automatic opening with a keypad or swipe card would be more user friendly. The site is beautifully situated next to the river, but its location in a tiny hamlet means there are no facilities nearby, therefore a car journey (or cycle ride) is necessary to the nearest village (Hesket Newmarket) for the shop and pub. Whilst it is in the Lake District National Park, being just on the North Eastern perimeter and a 25 min drive to Keswick, it is not very central for exploring the whole area. However, the countryside all around is beautiful and deserves exploring for its own unique qualities. Caldbeck, in particular, is a delightful village with many walks around it to explore.

Would we return? No

The site is really well run, clean and everything we expected. Very quiet and peaceful - as long as you don't mind sheep bleeting, birds singing and the river flowing over stones, just wonderful!

Lots of things had been thought of to help especially for those of us with motorhomes, like tubes to help when emptying your waste tank.

Information provided both on line and at the site is extremely helpful.

Don't be put off by the toilet and shower in wooden 'garden sheds'. They are heated and very clean with plenty of room and information/books and leaflets to read while doing 'other things!'

Each pitch was large and privately divided with conifers in between.

Highly recommended and we hope to be back soon.

Nice site and most of the reviews have covered the sites shower and toilet sheds. The red light system is handy knowing when the facilities are in use.

Overall a peaceful site, didn't see much of the promoted wildlife however, there is nothing in Millhouse village and any local pubs are a car drive away, this fact took the edge of the site for me. The site is well north of the northern fells and a good drive to get to Keswick or Buttermere side.

Would I stay again? No, peaceful site, nothing to do locally and a touch too far from the fells, other than that all good.

Reviewer: AVON EAGLE 4 reviews from this member

This small site has 2 parts - 5 spaces for CC members and 9 spaces for anyone. It's a cracking little site easy to get to (just be careful - sharp bend and building on corner after you turn off to the access road. ) The toilets and showers are in little sheds but plenty of room and as it's a small site not often full.

Just one word of warning whilst showering - don't turn off the water to soap down as you will get scolded when you turn on again.

We have been to this site several times and will use it again.

There is a pub down the road about 5 minutes drive - micro brewery and another a few minutes further on.
