Lovely site, quite easy to find and the showers were clean (if a little cramped in the normal cubicle) and warm. The kids play area was good but could be fantastic if more effort were made.

The shop was quite well stocked and the staff friendly.

On the down side the pitches were a little small. We paid to put our awning up but didn't get a larger pitch and ended up with very little space to park our car. If we didn't have an awning we would have more room for less money.

The pub was very nice, however we were not allowed to use it as we had children with us and we had to sit in the recreation room to eat. We have been in pubs up and down Britain and have never been sent out because we have our children with us.

As a consequence the bar remained empty and the recreation room was packed with families.

The food served in there was very nice if a touch on the pricey side but be warned, they don't take debit cards, it is cash or cheque only! There is a good pub just down the road towards Windemere that does take debit cards.

Really nice camp site not far from the Lakes. We stayed here en route to the Lakes and its a lovely site. It has a small shop which stocks basic items and the couple who run the site seem very friendly.

We are not members of the club but were able to stay here and pay a fee as non members. There are a large amount of pitches but over a few different areas and there is enough space between pitches for privacy and the pitches are on hand standings.

The facilities here are very good and well maintained. The washing up area is very good and the sinks are large allowing you to do a lot of washing up. Toilets and showers are heated and very good and have a coded door for entry.

The site seemed very family friendly and is in a lovely location. Not sure I would fancy taking a a caravan down the access road as it is narrow and had various pot holes but in our campervan it was fine. Caravans had gone down this road, so its just my opinion!

Really would recommend this site and would re visit when we are in the area again.

Site was superb upon arriving we were escorted to our pitch has it was nearly dusk. It was two days before christmas eve. First time of staying on such a large site .The decorations on site were pretty impressive I must say. You were left to spend xmas how you wanted.

The pub on site was catering for xmas lunches but you had to book in advance for that. Local shop on site that sold fresh local produce. On site shower and toilet blocks were clean and warm bearing in mind some nights the outside temp was -6.

The views around the campsite were superb. The one thing that we liked was you didn't have to take the car out if you didn't want to cos there was some nice walks around the site.

There is a morrisons in kendal if you ran out of anything major. We were surprised at how busy the site became during the Christmas festivities. We would certainly visit the site again.

Loved this site! It is easy to find & a great base from which you can explore the lakes.

On arrival a chap escorted us to our plot & worked out how far away we should be from our friends neighbouring tent so we were within fire safety regs. When we put the wind break up between the two tents he kindly asked us to move it - unknown to us it was a fire hazard being so close between the two tents. We were impressed with their safety conscious attitude.

The site is very well maintained & spotlessly clean. Plenty of toilets & showers which are very thoroughly cleaned. There is also a backpackers cabin which has sinks plus a couple of benches to eat at inside.

Security is very good & you have to obtain a key fob in order to get your car in & out of the site (10 refundable deposit). Entry & exit is prohibited from 11pm at night & a second barrier goes across the entrance to ensure this.

There is an 11pm quiet policy too. They adhere to it strongly to the point that last orders at the bar is 10.30pm with kicking out time at 10.50. Site is lovely & quiet so we all managed to sleep very well.

Plots are very flat although can be a little stony so make sure you bring plenty of pegs as we bent a few.

The main bar is lovely & has a quaint lakeland feel to it. They have a stock of playing cards & domino's for you to borrow too. We didn't use the shop but it did look well stocked.

The children's play area is great & we look forward to bringing our children with us on our next trip as they will love it.

Basically this site isn't the cheapest as you have to pay an additional 6(ish) for being a non member but it is absolutely worth every penny. If you are looking for a rowdy, cheap & cheerful site then this is not the one for you. If you are looking for a quiet, immaculately well maintained campsite then this is the one for you. We will definitely be staying next year!

Well, torrential rain and camping with children doesn't always mix! However in this case, we had a brilliant time, and a large part of that was down to this fantastic site.

We managed to do all the no-no's. An oversize tent, a short notice booking and we brought the Manchester weather with us! After a quick book in, we were led to our pitch and shown where the shower blocks, play area and fresh water points were located. Although there was standing water on some of the pitches ours was fairly dry, appeared well drained and had recently been reseeded - a slight word of caution though, we needed a few rock pegs in places.

The weather was appalling, and I don't think any site would have coped with the amount of water that fell over the next 72 hours. Most mornings saw the site staff draining standing water from many of the roads and from some of the hard standings.

The showers and toilets were always spotless, push button showers but always warm - never that few seconds of icy water just to wake you up! The shop sold basic provisions, the on site bar and family room was a bonus, although my two boys will never be any good at pool! The washers and dryers came in very useful.

Don't forget the 10 cash deposit for the entry key fob (we did!)

Overall a great site and one we will definitely be coming back to.

Stayed here for 10 Nights. With my wife and Two kids. Lovely campsite, very busy. Staff where quite friendly and polite. Campsite was very well maintained.

Play park is ok could do with a few more things in it.[only an observation not criticisim]

The only negative points that I have is that when it rains you do not wat to camp or pitch a Caravan at the far end of the site beside the statics and Wc block as it goes under at least 8 inches of water or more. Staff worked very hard to clear it away in Torrentle rain. This seems to an on going problem for quite some time.

Also a water supply at every pitch would be Handy as you could have to walk a bit to fill up.

Also not that I have a problem with Tents, as I am a Duke of Ed Leader, But they where pitched on every piece of grass, especially between to very narrrow tracks one for site traffic and the other for a few caravans, not good if you have kids in your Tent. Also Mobile phone signal is very weak, But did not bother me.

Overall a quite enjoyable Stay and we would go back again.

Things to do; Beatrix Potters House was excellent. Fell foot park and sizeurgh castle where very good. Most are National Trust propierties, so membership saves yo a small fortune.
