A great family site, the table tennis and table football proved a real hit with the children in the evenings while the log fire in the bar hit the spot with the adults.  There was a lovely big area for kicking a football (a must for my son) and adventure play equipment as well.  A well stocked shop was on site and the showers were always hot and we never had to wait for one (clean loos as well!).
Very friendly staff and a nice quiet location all goes to make this the best site we've been to in the Lakes - we'll definitely be back!

What a delightful experience ! Gorgeous site, very clean, well equipped, friendly staff, beautiful position and views, great facilities for kids - toddlers through to teenagers, 2 family bathrooms - again making life much easier with small children, most interesting campsite bar I've ever been to - lovely old beams.

And the owner is making every effort to run an environmentally friendly site - something that we should all support and encourage.

There are lots of good walks that you can start right from the site (you can download walk maps from their website) and the local area is FULL of very interesting things to do -both for adults and kids, the site is well equipped with local information.

We will definitely be visiting again - very soon !

Just back from a three day pre easter break at this great little site. Set in a fab location a mile or two from ullswater we were made feel very welcome by all the staff.
This was our first time camping so we wanted somewhere quiet and this site does exactly what it says on the tin.
The best feature of this site, and it's been mentioned before is the bar. On first entering I thought we'd walked onto a Hammer film set. It's taxidermy central! The log fire was great seeing as April in ullswater was as cold as a penguins foot.
We will be going back again in June we loved it that much,when it's a bit warmer.

A beautiful site. Excellent facilities very well maintained. There is everything you would need all supplied subtly to be in keeping with the environment. It is not the cheapest site you will find but you do get more than on some other sites. Previous reviews have mentioned dirty toilet blocks well we never saw anything along these lines - they were lovely and clean and never even had a cobweb or spider to be seen (quite rare in camping toilet blocks I have found!) There were other guests that may have been more suited to a Haven type site but you could not fault the management for this as in all sites you never know who will turn up! It seems that some guests do not know 'camping etiquette'! What makes people think everyone wants to listen to their radio blaring from their car or their dogs barking at 10 pm at night? Despite this we would definitely visit again as these things were no fault of the management or site and the same guests could turn up anywhere!

We are a family with two young children, the dog took a holiday with Grandad. We loved this site. The pitch was on a slight slope, but that was okay. We have a large tent and had plenty of room around us. The bins were emptied every morning. The toilets and showers were cleaned thoroughly every day and always warm. The washing up facilities were satisfactory - hot water was a bit slow - and some people forgot to clean the sink out after them! There were two private (heated) bathrooms where you could spend a bit of time bathing the children or having a soak yourself. The shop was well stocked, the staff were always helpful. In the log shed near the shop, there was a microwave, fridge and freezer. Ball games could be played on a large grass area away from the tents near to the play area. Last but not least was the wonderful pub, great real ale, roaring fire, play room for the children, games room for the older children. Location was secluded, but there was easy access to the main roads. We are planning on going again this year.

This is a great location for walkers and we thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay.

The site was quiet and the facilities were far from stretched as a result. However, this did not mean they were always as clean as they should be!

The bar is wonderful and the log fire is a real treat- shame there was no real ale on tap due to low visitor numbers but this must be a real bonus in peak season.

The wardens were very friendly and helpful and our pitch was perfect- flat hard standing with good access though there are a number where this is not the case due to the hilly nature of the terrain. Overall it lived up to it's name but showers and toilets let it down- these are in need of some upgrading and to be cleaned more frequently and effectively.

By the way, if you have a dog this is heaven for them.

We stayed at this site in August and I must say we were quite disappointed. The pitches were small and untidy, mine was too small for an awning. And the toilets were old and not very clean. Oh and the electrics tripped out all the time. I have to say the staff were very nice though.

Just got back from this great, family, dog friendly site situated in beautiful surroundings.
There are four showers and could maybe do with a few more but we didn't have to queue at all and the site was very busy.
Staff very friendly. This was our second visit and we love it here.
The pub is wonderfully warm with a huge log fire (great for drying your wet socks). It does get busy but you can always find a seat. It would be great if the pub did chips or toasted sandwiches. There is also a playroom for the little ones (or little at heart), a games room and tv room for the teenagers.
We will have a flat pitch next time tho' we are now experts at getting our cooker at the right angle so our eggs stay in the pan! (it's not that bad honest).  Plenty of dogs on the site but not a sign of any poo or litter.  Bins emptied regularly.
We liked the fact that there are several walks straight from the site so no need to drive anywhere. Recommend the aira force walk and the walk round Little Mel Fell(great views from the top).
Will definitely be going there again and you should too.

The owner raises head out of trench to say…. “BIG apologies to Di and Mick, It has felt a bit like Wembley Stadium here this week! The good news is that as I type the sweet smell of fresh tarmac is trickling thro my window indicating the end of a week I would rather forget! The work links the site to a newly formed reed bed, which is central to our commitment to do things in an environmentally friendly way. Normally this work is carried out in the closed season but could not be carried out on wet ground. Sorry again. DH

Just returned from a four night stay at this site and overall it was very pleasant.

I thought the toilet/shower facilities were a little poor - very slippy floor, dirty sinks and the soap dispenser in the ladies was always empty.

The site unfortunately did not live up to it's name because there was building works going on the whole time we were staying so we awoke to diggers and building noise. It might have been useful to have been told this when we booked!

This is a great site if you want to be secluded and away from it all, as when it is quite it is very quiet.

Just one other thing to mention is the walk advertised in the site leaflet to Aira Force is not for the faint hearted, it has no warning on it to say how hard it is and I just felt it was a little dangerous.
