This was my first time here & it will definitely not be my last.

A couple of mates went up on Monday & stopped 4 nights. I drove up on Tuesday & stopped 2 nights.

The views are STUNNING. Just sitting outside the tent having a brew each morning is truly breathtaking. We managed to get some cracking weather as well.

There is a large 2 sink wash area & the water is always steaming hot. Next to it is a large toilet/shower block. Very clean & more than adequate. It has hand driers & shaver points. Showers are free.

Its a working farm so has sheep & fowl so you can get fresh eggs at good prices.

The owner was friendly.

An excellent base for walking the various countryside which has to be seen to be believed (can you guess this was my first time in the Lake District ?)

The local town (Keswick) is only about 3 miles away so is easily walkable in under an hour. The taxi back is on average £10. Keswick has an abundance of what I call `proper`pubs :) Most serve Jennings Real Ale. Very palatable.

Will I go again ? YES is the answer to that question

HIGHLY recommended

This was our second visit to this site and no doubt, it won't be our last. The owner is very friendly and accommodating, nothing is too much trouble. Very professional, yet a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. The facilities are excellent, if not a little over-stretched at peak times, but are always clean with plenty of hot water. We were lucky with the weather when we visited at the May bank holiday, except one day was very wet and windy. But the site coped extremely well and the fields have good drainage.

A good base for exploring the surrounding lakes and mountains and about a ten minute drive to Keswick town centre for shopping. Or if you aren't very adventurous, the views from the site are spectatular if you just want to sit outside your tent and relax with a drink or two. Being a working farm, there are always animals to keep you amused as well.

Highly recommended. We look forward to visiting again.

Have stayed at this site more times than I can remember. First came when the toilet and shower were across the road in the farm buildings, that was basic!

Fantastic views all around, walking from the door.

Shops and pubs not far away.

Linda always makes us welcome.

Bank holidays are always busy, as with any campsite. Stay when the crowds are gone, you may have the site to yourselves. Enjoy and relax.

Spent one night at this excellent site and will certainly return. Despite previous reviews, we found that the facilities were plentiful, although we were staying at a quiter time of the year. The scenery is outstanding and there are several great walks from the site, such as Blencathra, Keswick and Castlerigg Stone Circle. Showers were hot, clean and well maintained and the site owners were great: nice relaxed 'pay as you leave' ethos.

Reviewer: Roger A 1 review from this member

We stayed here during the floods affecting that part of the country and the club sites weren't coping very well with all the water. This site was relatively dry had no problem coping with the weather, probably because being a working farm life has to go on.

The site was great, the toilets were very clean and modern and we did not have to queue to use the facilities - any more than we would at any other site, where you tend to avoid peak times like first thing in the morning.

Linda and her family were very friendly and helpful, we had a problem with noisy neighbours and as soon as Linda was made aware the problem was resolved.

The scenery was beautiful when the black clouds permitted a view and local amenities were close by.

We will certainly use this site again the next time we are in Cumbria and when we visit Woolfest.

Reviewer: Crumblecustard 1 review from this member

This site is surrounded by spectacular scenery.† Lynda and her husband are very friendly but the lack of facilities spoilt our visit.
There are 2 washing up sinks,†3 toilets (per sex), 3 showers and 2 wash basins to accommodate 2 fields of campers and another 2 fields of caravans.
The grey waste had to be†disposed†of at the†chemical unit which was a hole in the ground, it did have a cover but nobody replaced the cover (probably because the cover had splashes of other peoples chemical waste and was a bit rusty).† we had noisy neighbours at the other side of the hedge (loud tv until after midnight).
If you used any of the facilities between about 8am and 10am or after tea you could more or less guarantee having to queue.
We will not be visiting the site again.
