This was our third stay at this beautiful little site, top marks to John and Dawn for keeping it so immaculate. I never saw any scrap metal or garden waste anywhere, the grounds are actually beautifully maintained. Quite how a previous reviewer didn't find the shower is beyond me as they are right next to the toilet, which he apparently did find.

It only has 10 pitches which are spread in two areas of the site, but it's certainly not big enough to require a map! And to say there's nothing to do?! We climbed Carrock Fell and other nearby peaks, rowed across Derwent Water, and visited the nearby town of Keswick, and the villages of Hesket New Market and Caldbeck, both of which are picture postcard perfect by the way. There's plenty of things to do.

The site is so tranquil, and we were able to sit out most evenings reading and hearing nothing but bird song, bliss! The red squirrels put in plenty of appearances for us as well.

We're off up to Durness in the Highlands in the summer, but we can't wait until we can visit this little gem of a site again, 10 out of 10 from us, thank you!

Just returned from another relaxing stay on the riverbank, at Riverside. Thanks again John & Dawn for providing such a well kept site.

The previous reviewer must have been reviewing another site, as we never saw any garden waste or scrap metal any where, and all the site is laid out perfectly with smooth walking surfaces. Also the shower, (which has a big sign on it) that he never found, is just 3ft away from the toilet.

We found the WiFi very useful. Ok, it is a bit slower than we are used to, but it is a very rural area. You've got to admit, at only a £1 a day its well worth it.

Apparently the two recently constructed phone masts on top top the nearby hills go live in April, and 4G from most of the networks will be available on site, which will be an added bonus for our next visit in May.

We just love the quietness of the area. There are such variety of gentle gradiant walks on the nearby Northern Fells which we enjoy, with the bonus of the unrivalled scenery, which is completely uncommercialized.

Keep up the good work John & Dawn.

You've got the mix spot-on.

Great location right by small river. Lovely sound. Reasonable access roads to site for vans.

All facilities fine. Sweet little 'shed' for toilet. Never found shower but didn't need to.

Could have done with map of site for those unable to walk around it too far, and to aid orientation, although it is very small.

Disabled toilet but no other facilities for disabled, such as decent path for walking/ being pushed/riding round site. Wouldn't take much to make a few proper pathways.

All very uneven and whole site extremely untidy with garden/general waste and scrap metal.

'Riverside dog walk' about 12 feet long and made potentially lethal, as another camper put it, by tree roots. Really not a functional dog walk at all. A serious accident waiting to happen.

However, it is ok to walk dogs around site itself.

I got no Vodafone signal on site at all.

Would not have seen owner at all had I not gone to house, however, very pleasant re booking and times.

Money to be posted in envelope by toilets.

Leaflets re local places to visit were in toilet, along with a book swop.

Many were damp and stuck together. Bit unpleasant.

Wifi - advertised as available for daily charge. Paid charge but never got any connection. Only £1 a day but should have been possible if advertised. Tried with laptop and iPad and moved away from van.

Perhaps this should be verified if it is to be advertised.

Didn't find a lot to do in this area c/w other sites around the country.

Also, some roads unsuitable for units wider than 2 metres which can cause problems.

A fantastic idyllic site with plenty of space. Owners were very helpful. The toilets and showers although they look like sheds are in fact tardis's in disguise, you have got to see to believe. A good week was had despite the weather. Mobile phone signal absent so it's well worth the very small fee for wi-fi. Will visit again.

This was our second visit and it won't be our last. The site is immaculate, well laid-out and a credit to John and Dawn. It is in a quiet backwater, but that's the attraction for us - Drive around Caldbeck Commons and drink in the beauty of the countryside! Get out of the car and walk and it gets better. Highly recommended for total relaxation and good access to the parts of Cumbria that the masses don't bother with.

What a little hidden gem of a site this is. Me and my wife have just returned from a 7 night stay and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Ok the showers and toilets aren't the best we've come across but they certainly aren't the worse. Small and compact but cosy and more than adequate. We had a pitch overlooking the river and enjoyed sitting there watching the wildlife which included woodpeckers, nuthatches, finches etc. And even an otter ! John the warden goes about his daily upkeep and business without you knowing he is there most of the time but always has time to answer any questions or queries about anything or even if only a chat. It's extremely quite and peaceful with lots of options to visit like Keswick, castlerigg stone circle, Penrith and historic carlisle which is more than worth a visit for heritage reasons and shopping too. All in all we both really enjoyed our stay and won't hesitate to visit this beautiful site again.

A big well done to John and his wife for this site. It's well worth going.

Well done !
