Blessed by the unusual Easter weather (sunshine), we stayed on a serviced pitch and were delighted by tranquil surroundings (even though the site was almost full). Ideally situated for the northern Lakes without the large crowds normally associated Everywhere was kept tidy and the toilets were very clean. The dog walk area is fantastic, just make sure your pooch will come back when called as there is access to the beck! Our only gripe is no wifi, and be aware that O2 has no mobile signal.

Arrived on the first day of opening at 1230 and already 12 units pitched up. As stated in previous posts the toilets are underfloor heated including the shower basin! Absolutely superb site, with great, friendly staff and views to die for! Superb weather made it even better, although sub zero most nights for our 5 night stay. Up early with my dog I watched Roe deer and buzzards in Matterdale Forest behind the site - good walking along logging tracks. Penrith has a Morrisons with fuel plus a new Sainsburys, Aldi, Iceland and a Go Outdoors. Other outdoor specialist shops in Keswick, and Ambleside make for retail therapy. There is a barrier system in operation along with a one way system, on our next visit we might try the fully serviced pitches - those closest to the toilets still have the views but are closer to the forest tracks and some have a flagstone patio area from when statics covered this area, nowadays there is only one on site. Yes there are no close amenities with the exception of pubs and a farm shop with fly fishing but if that's your bag then go elsewhere don't whinge about it - you have been informed if you read these reviews

Location

Situated a mile or so from the A66, it's an easily accessible site and well placed as a base for the North Lakes, Keswick and Ullswater. It's a bit isolated with little to do in the area, so it's best to have s car or bike to travel. Pub at Troutbeck is a mile away and does good grub.

Facilities

The site is modern so the facilities are excellent. Pitches are huge and well spaced out.

Price

20 per night approx.

Great site!

This was our second stay on the site, and it is just about as good as it gets. Near to the M6, easy to find, and surrounded by drop dead gorgeous views. Everything is immaculate, and both Keswick and Penrith (each with a Superstore) are only a short drive away. Ullswater is nearby, with Glenridding at one end (with eateries and a service station to fill up, and ample parking), and Pooley Bridge at the other (again with eateries and parking). There are public footpaths for stunning walks all around the Lake, and Aria Falls which is a stunning walk alongside waterfalls. A mobile 'chippy' is on site Thursday, Friday and Saturday teatime; my Wife enjoyed her fish and chips, and although my chips and curry sauce was lovely, the chicken fillet seemed to have been boiled for too long and was tasteless, a bit pricey too. The service pitches are faultless, and the site coped well with torrential rain. You get a weak mobile signal, but TV reception was excellent. The site doesn't have WiFi. We would not hesitate to go back.

We stayed at Troutbeck on a serviced pitch for the weekend. Check-in was very efficient and we were allowed to choose our own pitch from those available. We stayed on pitch 26 up towards the dog walk area as we have stayed up here before and it has great views (when the weather allows).

The serviced pitch area of the site was not very busy but the standard pitch part of the site was a lot busier.

Despite all of the rain which fell over the weekend, the toilet block stayed remarkably clean. There are all the facilities you need here, washing up facilities, chemical toilet points, games room even a mobile fish and chip van on a Friday and Saturday. The showers are good with a relatively high pressure on them and lots of hot water. The site roads are nice and wide so make moving the van round the site easy enough.

Our pitch was fantastically flat and plenty big enough. We did not put the awning up as we were expecting bad weather and only there for two nights. Our pitch had a little patio area at the back for bbqs or seating.

My only criticism is that the waste point on our pitch was at a higher level than the pitch so the waste water sat in the pipe rather than draining away.

The site is very very easy to get to and find, approx. 10 minutes from Junc 40 of the M6. It is a great base for exploring Ullswater, Pooley Bridge, Aira Force, Blencathra, Great Mell Fell etc.

I would definitely stop here again as the site is very well maintained and there is so much to do in the local vicinity of the site.

This site is situated just about a mile of the A66 and is a good base for touring the Lake District. All pitches are large and well maintained and the toiled and shower facilities are spotless. Staff on site are really helpful and friendly. The nearest pub is a mile away and serves good food.

Locally, Ullswater is a few miles and worth visiting for excellent hill walking and water sports. A bit further is Keswick, a great town on the shores if Derwentwater and great for access to Borrowdale.

It cost about 20 for a motorhome with electricity.

Great site. Recommended.
