We visited as first time campers and were very impressed with the facilities on site. We never used the pub for the food but it looked reasonably priced.

The site is about 5 miles from Windermere itself but that wont put us off from another visit. The pitches are very level but we needed rock pegs and quite a few. All in all a great site friendly staff well worth it.

It was our first time in a C and CC site having only joined two days earlier and we managed to book this large site on the day we went despite it being a hot weekend.

Having driven down on a Friday night after work we got there, booked in and then found that our car would not start again! Several staff came straight out to help push the car into the site carpark and then hitched up our folding camper to an on site tractor and took straight to our pitch.

They even brought water in a dish for our dogs! With offers of tools and any help we needed they then left us to sort our camper. OH was able to fix car later so the holiday could go on.

The site is well ordered, nice level pitches and clean, warm, plentiful showers / toilets. Separate washing cubicles also available as was in door dishwashing facilities and a laundry room.

Park for kids and a bar serving meals also there though did not use these but they looked fine, at decent prices for a range of meals too.

The lack of loud noise, people talking, music after 10.30 etc. was great for relaxing after a working week and the size of the pitches just added to a really nice weekend. Each pitch had a nice grass area at the side.

Digital tv could be picked up fine with our ariel too.

We had a hardstanding pitch with ehu at 16amp but also checked out the tent fields for visits with family. There was a field for basic tents and a larger field for tents / caravans / motor homes to be together on grass with ehu. We even saw a huge RV so they are able to take all types.

They do take non members too though prices will go up. Dogs are welcome though the dog walk area was quite small. For exercise the site was large enough in the heat, with leads on of course (we were lucky with the weather)

Will definitely go back here again.

Just got back from a brilliant 2 night stay over the May Day Bank Holiday. Lovely site, really easy to get to. Friendly wardens, booked us in and then showed us to our pitch, gave us loads of information about the site and the area, very helpful.

Showers and toilets were very clean. The site was pretty much full but didn't seem overcrowded.

Little boot / cycle / dog wash area which was great. There is a small shop with all the essentials and a bar / restaurant, we didn't actually get to try it out!

Ten minute drive to Windermere. Few miles from Staveley, we had dinner from the chippy there last night, it wasn't the best we have ever had!

Popped in at the Watermill on the way back from Windermere, lovely pub, good ales, we didn't try the food. They welcome dogs into part of the pub which was great.

All in all a lovely weekend and we hope to return in the summer.

Great site, easy location off M6 then A591. Pitches flat with either hard-standing or grass. Good showers, never had to queue (but then again I get up early)

Friendly wardens take you to your pitch and help you onto site. If required a small tractor will help pull on/off. Dog walk in vicinity, few miles walk to Stavely.

Short drive to Windermere. Site is busy at bank hols. Lots of children on bicycles. Get there earlier enough and try and get a pitch on The Mound. Not too many kids there!

We made a last minute booking here on our way back from Scotland.

Very friendly reception with well stocked shop. You pay a premium for having a restaurant and pub on site (which we are not bothered about when we go camping). We are C&CC members and at Easter for 4 in a Motorhome, it cost us just under 35 a night-for this price, I'd expect a heated swimming pool!

The site was obviously well kept and toilet and shower facilities were excellent.

We had a lovely walk across fields to Stavely, the station being about a mile and a half away, with trains to main line stations. Stavely has a pub, spar shop and fish and chip shop. There were pheasants wandering around the site and it was lovely watching people enjoying themselves after spending the previous night at a caravan club site.

We came here when our holiday abroad was cancelled due to ash cloud. Lovely site, near to lake Windermere by car 5 to 10 minute drive. Windermere has lots to see and do, boat trips, Beatrix Potter, and shopping. Clean site with great facilities, dog bath, pub/restaurant, with very nice food and reasonably priced. Lots of walks nearby. Toilets and showers clean and well kept. Would definitely go again, one of the best sites we have visited. Cannot wait to visit here again hopefully this year sometime.
