Just got back from a fab weekend at this campsite. One of the best we have been too. Absolutely beautiful area, scenery stunning. On Ullswater and about 5-10 minutes away from Pooley Bridge where there are a few shops and pubs/eating places.

The campsite itself was spotless, really well looked after and organised. Always hot water for the showers which cost 20p. The shop was well stocked and the staff really friendly. The club house was great if you have little kids and there's a nice park for them too. It's not the cheapest campsite but it's well worth paying that bit extra. I would definitely go back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Recently spent a weekend at Park Foot. The site is located in a stunning part of Cumbria, with a very short walk to the beautiful lake. There were a number of pubs nearby for meals out.

The site itself was great, the pitches were well spaced out. The site shop was well stocked and very reasonably priced.

Showers / toilet block was always very clean, saw someone in there cleaning everytime I went in.

The only downside was a very large, foul mouthed family who arrived for our second night there. Campsite security did ask them to keep the noise down but unfortunately this was ignored.

No problems at all with the site/facilities, just a pity you can't choose who gets put next to you!

Just returned from our stay at Park Foot. With it being the half term holidays as you would expect the site(s) were very full but despite this there was still enough space to find a suitable pitch for everybody's own tastes.

£22.00 per night was the fee for two people a tent and one car which is a reflection of the lake district premium but is still a rate not far from one you could pay to stay in a local B + B! Due to the weather we are currently having the ground was rather hard and so pegs were sometimes difficult to get in.

The toilet block in our area was well maintained and clean with showers available most of the time or a short wait due to the number of campers. 20p allowed for 6 minutes of shower.

The site had plenty of things to do and was more than adequate for our needs whilst we were there as we were out in the sun making the most of our days then returning to camp ready for the bbq!

We have just returned from 2 nights at this site.

The site was pretty full as it was half term, but we found a pitch convenient for the toilet block.

The showers were good, and the 6 minutes for 20p was more than adequate.The shower cubicles were good as there was somewhere to put clothes and a screen to stop them getting wet while you used the shower. Finding a time to use the shower was more difficult as there were often a lot of women and girls in the block doing their make up and hair.We waited until we thought people would be cooking their evening meal, which turned out to be a good move.

The toilets were averagely clean. There were a lot of children on site and I only managed to use the (one) handryer in the loos once because for some reason children seemed to enjoy playing with it!

There is a 'dogs on a lead' rule which was not obeyed or enforced. I mentioned to a member of staff that I had seen a dog roaming free and he wasn't interested.

The site was very noisy until midnight, when it did quieten down. The rule is quiet between midnight and 8am.

There were security guards who patrolled at regular intervals in a truck, and we also saw some on foot. We have not come across this before, and did not know whether to be glad that they were there, or worried that they were needed.

We paid £31.50 a night, which seemed pretty steep. We did not use the facilities on the main site at all so can't comment on them. We did walk over there but it was even noisier than our site.

We were given a luggage label to display on our tent to show we had paid, and someone came round daily to check.

This isn't the type of site for those wanting a quiet time. We spent a lot of time out- if we had wanted to stay on the site all day the noise from next door's radio would have been quite a problem.

We won't be going back, but it did provide a base for us to discover what the lake district had to offer.

Just got back from the bank-holiday weekend - this was our 2nd visit to the site - overall a great site if a little crowded and this is in no way a reflection on the site its-self becuase I'm sure mid-week or quieter week-ends it would be different but it does seem to attract the kind of people that would be more at home on a stag/hen in Benidorm! - spoilt it really and its a shame but would probably not go back and next time in the Lakes will look for a quieter site.

Its not cheap at £36.00 a night either but I guess you get what you pay for but out and about on the site you don't get that feeling your getting ripped off ala Haven sites etc - great well stocked shop with decent prices and great freshly baked stuff in the morning - bar prices in the club-house were not too expensive although the clientèle spoilt it (must have picked a bad week-end because it wasn't as bad last year)

Great location with a nice little walk into Pooley Bridge with a couple of decent little pubs - showers great and hot although at £36 a night without ehu would have been nice if they were free!

This was our first trip to Park Foot and byt the end of the year we will have been 3 times. Love this site, yes it is a busy one but we have never had any trouble with noise or problems with anyone on the site.

It is a lovely setting very close to the lake and a lovely 20 minute walk into the village (Pooley Bridge). The facilities are always clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful and we have been very happy with our stays there this year and we will be returning next year.

We have always stayed in the Top Shop field where there are EHU available for tents and they are not hard standing they are grass pitches, level ground with facilities close by.

My only niggle would be that the facilities (even though there are quite a lot) do still get very busy and so you have to pick your showering times very carefully - if you go between 8-10am and 5-7pm expect to queue but if you go outside these hours there is usually no problem and at 20p for 6 minutes you get more than enough time.

Looking forward to our return visit already !

Stayed here 1st Bank Holiday weekend in May. Last minute booking, so were lucky to get a pitch. Excellent staff - couldn't have been more helpful. Pitched the tent Saturday afternoon (bought an electric pump from the well stocked shop for the air bed - excellent price) and went off to the village for pub dinner. Village pubs all really busy so we travelled up the road to Penrith. Not far and good choice of places to eat.

Definitely a family site - loads of kids running round with water guns etc and a noisy club house, but come 11pm the place was pretty quiet. Just being the two of us, we weren't even asked for a noise deposit.

Showers & toilets were really clean, and I never had to wait for a shower. 20p for 6 minutes - which seemed more like 10.

All in all, a lovely weekend. We were happy to pay the few pounds extra compared to other sites as the facilities are excellent.

Stayed for 4 nights in May. The site is clean, the toilets and showers are always clean and tidy. The shop is fairly priced and so is the club house. There is plenty of pitches to put your tent, the staff are very helpful.

Its nicely situated near lake Ullswater, Pooley Bridge is not far to walk into, where there is nice pubs and shops there.

Myself and my family had no problems at all whilst staying at the site, and would fully recommend it to people.

Just returned from the bank holiday break at Park Foot and have to say as a family of ten (7 adults and 3 children) not one of us were disappointed with our stay.

The campsite itself is idyllic, looking over to Lake Ullswater and the rolling hills in the distance. We had two tents on pre-booked electric pitches and the fact it was half gravel, half grass didn't matter, as we took tarpaulin to protect the ground sheet.

Facilities were superb, especially the showers and the toilets. We also used the take away and the bar a few times. A lovely friendly campsite and it was all agreed we would come back.

Just returned from a great weekend at park foot. Weather was glorious. The site was quite quiet and kids loved it. Great facilities

Only bad point was coming home, oh and the couple in the next tent that were very loud.

But overall fantastic weekend there and can't wait to go back
