 Lovely clean site with plenty of toilet facilities and free showers with plenty of hot water. Camp kitchen with free use of 2 kettles and 1 toaster and use of hob and microwave at a small charge.

Well stocked shop on site with everything you possibly need and pub just outside site entrance. Tent field on a slope and not many flat positions to put your tent up, on the plus side you can park your car outside the tent and erect your tent where ever you wish.

Site owners very laid back but well run site

 Nice site with very good facilities and excellent views- campers kitchen and lounge were a welcome break from sitting in the tent in the rain!

 Second visit to this site this time in tent not caravan. New showers beautiful best I've seen hope mirrors go in soon though! Staff very friendly and helpful. We met some super fellow campers despite terrible rain most of the week. The views are stunning of Derwentwater and from bottom of field bassenthwaite and keswick.
Hairdryer is 50p for 1 minute tokens from shop cost me a bit with long hair but shower free. Half hour to Walla Crag super views and Stone Circle well worth a visit. Do try on my recommendation!

 The facilities on this site are very good and we had a wonderful stay. The views are outstanding and it is a quiet well kept site with lovely areas to walk. It is an ideal base camp for exploring keswick and the surrounding areas and the staff were very helpful.
The only thing lacking was a childrens outside play area although they had a lovely big field for them. My son (9) had a great time in the games room as they have table football, table tennis (take your own bats as the reception ones are a bit dilapidated) and pool.
The showers were excellent and I got long enough to wash hair and self within two timed goes. Shop well stocked and nice cafe but we felt it was a little pricey. The pub just outside the camp was so quaint but get in early for a seat as it is popular.

All in all a very enjoyable and untroubled stay.

 Well run site, beautiful views. Shop and cafe good but a bit expensive. In the new shower block the shower water was too hot! Also need mirrors there!

It would be great if the recreation field had seats at the top end for people to enjoy the fantastic view. Pub got very busy quickly and we had to wait ages for food and it only opens at 7PM.

However it is a very good site in a prime location.

 We stayed on this campsite in July 2008 and were very impressed on our first impression. The reception was homely and inviting, staff very helpful - even the cat came to say hello!

We were booked in quite quickly and given information on the facilities. Our pitch was on the left hand camping field with approx 30 other tents, though not on each others doorsteps.

The facilities were excellent, toilets and showers very clean, launderette excellent. Games room and kitchen both clean and tidy (although we didnt use them we did look in).

We found the prices in the Hungry Hiker restaurant a little expensive, but the money you save on camping, you can spend on dinner.

Altogether, we had an excellent time, no trouble, 10.30pm quiet rule was adhered to.

Definitely recommend and definitely will return.

 We've stopped here before and willingly came back as its such a cracking site.

With regards the toilet block in the tent field, the lady mentioned them to us as we checked in and she did say she was hoping they'd be finished in a couple of days, a week later when we left (Thursday 24 July) they are still working on them but they have cleared a lot of the rubble away.

Hopefully they'll be finished soon, incidentally the work being undertaken is to extend the block and to include disabled facilities so for this the site should be applauded, maybe the work hasn't gone as smoothly as the site owners would like as I'm sure they'd have liked the work to be finished for the peak season.

Two minor niggles this time around were that we went out for the day and came back to find someone had pitched their tent right up against ours, their guyropes actually blocked our doorway, a passing site worker quickly sorted this out as he told the owners to move their tent so that there was at least a 3m gap. The other was that we went with 7 ice blocks and came back with 3 even though they were clearly marked with our surname.

Other than that the site is still great value and very scenic.

 Wow! Thats about all I can say, everything was fantastic! The views were out of this world and the facilities were impressive. What an amazing find! And lovely fresh bread and rolls in the shop! Heaven on Earth!
Keswick was just a few minutes drive, didn't manage the walk as my poor legs wont let me! Big superstore called Booth's in Keswick was very handy and plenty of local produce, which we always like to try when travelling!
Wonderful drive through to Windermere, with some of the most spectacular scenery I have ever encountered. One thing if you have never been to the Lake District before is remember the insect repellent, I got bitten all over by the midges!

Reviewer: Hollyberry 1 review from this member

 We have visited this site many times in the past and found it a great quiet site.

Disappointingly the toilets, showers and washing up area on the camping field were shut for re-development and that the site was covered in a lot of rubble and building materials which we were not told until after we had booked in.

The view as usual was stunning and the staff friendly and helpful, the area in which the site is set has some wonderful view and the rest of it was wonderful even if the weather was freezing!

Reviewer: Graham5034 2 reviews from this member

 This is the third time we have stayed here and enjoyed it every time, already booked for next year. The views from this site are great and the walk into keswick over wella cragg also has great views.

The pub round the corner from the site has vegetarian food (not to our liking though).
