Date of Visit: March 2008 Unit:  Motorhome
Reviewer: Ianjren 2 reviews from this member

We stayed on this site for 2 nights and on arrival were impressed with the site itself and the cleanliness of the facilities. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the on site bar and restaurant are handy, although not very big.

The only down side with this site was the fact that it is a little in the middle of nowhere, with the nearest village being a 3 mile hike up and down hill - so not recommended for children or pushchairs.

Windermere is a little further than implied on the literature about the site and without a car this can be problematic as local transport can be hit and miss.

Overall the site is very good, but not ideal if you want close by amenities and are reliant on foot or bikes, so as not to unhook your motorhome.

We visited this site with our touring caravan late last year. We have previously visited this site on several occassions with our tent.

The site has excellent facilities, including a small pub, shop, and games area where you can also order food to eat in or take away.

The food prices are reasonable and the menu is quite nice. Came in very handy when we visited with the tent when I was pregnant and feeling quite fussy about food and was craving for a pizza (not easy to cook on a BBQ).

We have stayed on two tenting areas. One opposite where the wardens stay, and the other was to the rear of the site. Both were lovely.

When we came with the caravan recently we found the staff really helpful in helping you pitch and cycling round keeping an eye out.

There is a strict 'No Noise' policy (like other C&C club sites) which came in handy for us with the children as you really don't want to be kept awake late at night.

We love this site. It is ideally situated in location, has great views, and very helpful friendly staff.

We can't wait for it to open for the season again this year so we can visit again.

Great site. We booked to go for halloween weekend with two other families. We had a Great pitch with electric hook up and plenty of space. The toilet and shower block were clean.

We didn't use the washing up and laundry room although I was led to beleive these where very adequate.

The shop was very small but provided the basics but there is a local supermarket at either windermere or kendal. (although I sent my husband and didn't see him again for over 1 hour and half!)

The site has a restaurant which we ate at on the Friday, the meals where nice and the childrens portions where very generous. Attached is a pub. My only critism is that they only take cash or cheque. There is no card facilities at the restaurant. (although I am led to believe that from next year they will accept card.)

We really enjoyed our stay.

Fantastic site. We booked it on the last minute & we were not disappointed. We had a lovely pitch with electric hook up& had plenty of space on our pitch even with a large tent. The toilet & shower block were spotless (like being at home) as were the washing up & laundry room.
There is a small play area for the children & plenty of room to make friends &play. There is a very small shop with basics & an ice pack service (40p per pack). There is a Booths at Windermere. They have a small pub which closes at 10.30pm & a family room for evening meals which are fantastic. Shame we only ate in there on our last night. The site is kept beautifully & all the staff are helpful & very friendly. There is coarse fishing available almost next door to the site & you can buy day passes from the b.P garage.

You are about 10 minutes drive from Windermere & Bowness with all the tourist attractions. If you are looking for entertainment or late noisy nights then this is not the site for you. Only the owls to be heard after 9.30pm. Bliss. Will definitely be returning

We recently bought a tent as a family of 4 and to be honest just made a quick decision to visit Windermere Camping and Caravanning Club Site.† I just wanted to say that we couldn't have picked a nicer place.† The staff were wonderful and so helpful, taking†us personally to our pitch and answering any questions we had.† Right opposite our tent pitch there was a 'Campers Retreat', which was a lovely immaculately clean log cabin with stainless steel sinks and worktops for the campers to wash up and prepare food in, also there was a table to sit at and eat if you so wished.† The showers were not very far away and they too were immaculately clean and heated with lovely warm water.† There is a cafe with a snooker table in which served nice food and a separate bar where children are not allowed, but that wasn't a problem as you could get a drink and take it outside anyway.† Last but not least, the play area.† This was really good with big wooden structures for the kids to play on and we spent several hours playing hide and seek there.† The setting of the site is perfect and although we weren't really there long enough to go on any walks, it goes without saying that there are plenty of lovely walks in the surrounding area.† I would really reccomend this site to everyone and hope to visit again soon, weather permitting of course.

Stayed two nights - 2 Adults here and all I can say is friendly, clean, VERY quiet - what more could we ask for???

Oh yes, the two chaps who guided us to our pitch on bikes unhooking our caravan and locating it on pitch for us - felt bad for not giving them a tip.!

Shower and toilet facilities were the best I have seen in ages.

The pub (Whistling Pig) is rather small, but quaint - quite adequate for the site I would say.

SUPER SITE - we will be returning.!
