A great location close to Keswick and Castlerigg stone circle. The electric hookup pitches were flat and close to the facilities, but for the rest of us a sloping field too far to pick up the wifi. The facilities although dated were clean but one of the three showers in the gents was out of order. The showers are free and the water always hot and the push button stayed in for more than 5 seconds so it was possible to enjoy a relaxing shower without spending all your time pressing the knob. I always avoid the school holidays to avoid noisy kids running around so it was disappointing to find a school party had taken over half the field. The cost of 21 per night for two people and one tent seemed a little pricey even for the Lakes, so I don't think we will return as looking around we found other sites nearby with better facilities and pitches and cheaper.

A lovely simple little site with stunning views. The ground was quite wet when we arrived, but we were able to pick the best of the pitches available. Toilet/shower block was fine, although a little muddy and slippery coming along the path from the field. Nice spacious washing up area. Helpful and friendly owners. Nicely situated for walking and driving into Keswick town. We had some very heavy rain towards the end of the week so the ground got very boggy underneath the tent - not surprising!

Quite a basic camp site, but would definitely return. It was enjoyable to be on a working farm, seeing the chickens walking around the tents and hearing the sheep bleating every morning.

Just returned home from a 10 night stay at this site. Arrived Thursday tea time with the wind and rain lashing down, met by Linda who was very welcoming and showed us to our pitch (even apologized for the weather!). We soon pitched up and immediately felt at home.

Despite the shocking weather and the busy-ness of the site the facilities held up, yes the showers weren't very powerful but they were always hot and clean. The rain passed over the next couple of days and we had a wonderful spell of sunshine where we could really take in the beautiful surroundings. The site is perfectly placed to explore and we spent many days canoeing on Derwentwater, Bassenthwaite and Thirlmere which is absolutely stunning.

We don't go for sites with club houses and entertainment so for us this site was perfect, few do's and don't's, adequate warm and clean facilities, stunning location, and best of all a lovely 'feel' to the place. We will be back for sure.

Location location location. This is a small site that's all about the views. Smallish L shape camping field with great countryside views. Arrived mid Friday afternoon and had choice of a couple electric pitches. Expected it to get much busier over weekend but nicely surprised was still not full with plenty of room around tent. Toilets dated, could have been cleaner but for a fussy camper, wouldn't stop us returning. Quite a long walk into village, and up steep winding country lane on way back, but all with awesome views. Worth the walk though, lovely village across the main road, (via crossing point) quaint houses and welcoming pub serving food. Close enough for short drive into Keswick, 3 miles, glad we drove to castlerigg stone circle up long steep lane. Nice site would return.

I booked for 2 nights from Sunday 30th August-Tuesday 1st September (bank holiday weekend).

On arrival, I went to the office to speak to the owner. She came over to the site with me & explained that they had had a lot of rain the previous week & the ground was soaking wet. She said that we could just pick the best place that was not sodden. We found a spot with a lovely view of Blencathra (we had been before so wanted this view)! It was the first time that we had used EHU. It was forecast rain, thunder & lightening on the Sunday night. There was a slight drizzle through the night & that was it! Misty in the morning but then the sun came through & burned the mist off. As previously, the shower/toilet block was clean & warm. The showers were hot. I'll probably regret this review when we can't get booked up but it is a wonderful site & very reasonably priced.

Great location, near Kesick. Not far off the M6.

Busy when we were there so they opened the 'overflow' field. Plenty of space. That field was a little bit on a slope but if you stay in the normal camping field it is ideal.

Facilities clean, warm water. Unfortunately very low pressure so it was a bit of a trickle of water.

Excellent views!

Good pricing.
