Reviewer: Alan Bewley 1 review from this member

 What a wonderful secluded site for people who prefer the quieter break. We have a caravan and are self sufficient and this is our favourite site for the Lake District. There is hook up, water and a toilet. Plus views of Blencathra to the west, and the Pennines in the east. Mein hosts. Craig and Liz are most welcoming. Although we use it as a Base

, there are a lot of users either en route to Scotland or returning. The town of Penrith is close by.

 Great wee site. Five hard standings and grassy area for tents. Good level pitches for caravans, nicely laid out, one toilet and no shower. Not a problem for us as we use our caravan shower all the time anyway.

Beautiful location, very rural. Easy access to Penrith which is a lovely little town.

Only had one night here but intend to return and spend more time. It's easy access from the M6 and you can visit the lakes easily from here.

An information notice board gives you details of supermarkets, eating places etc plus leaflets on local attractions.

Craig and Liz were very welcoming and very quick to respond to my enquiry in the first instance when I was booking the stopover

 I used this site as a stop over heading south, for this it is ideally located being only a few miles from the M6. Even though the facilities are the basic they are in excellent condition and very clean. As it is a small site it doesn't have play facilities on site but the kids enjoyed running up and down the hill.

The owners were very friendly and gave us the directions thought the fields to their local. It was a glorious summers night so we took their advice and found the pub easily.

There was only one more caravan on site when we visited so it was very quiet at night.

I would return here and recommend it as a great base for visiting the local area.

 This is a very pretty quiet site with lovely walks, excellent for dog owners. Weather was cold with snow showers during our visit but this did not detract from our enjoyment. We walked through the fields with our dog and had a lovely lunch at the George and Dragon hotel which is very dog friendly. The site owners are extremely friendly and the rules are few and based on consideration for others and respect for the environment. I can recommend this site to those wishing to tour the Lake District or merely to enjoy the hospitality and stay on a beautiful quiet site in the countryside.

 Excellent site tucked well away from the road and with lovely views over the fells. Helpful proprietors, who even have an honesty box if unable to meet you. Basic but very clean facilities. Also only 3 miles from M6 so great stop over if travelling to Scotland. Level hard standings with water nearby. Camping field on very slight gradient but not a problem, would fully recommend this site.

Reviewer: Annieeds 1 review from this member

 For us, this site offered us a great base for which to explore the Lakes and surrounding areas. The site is brilliant for short and long stays and would be a great halfway point for those doing the Coast to Coast route.

The site is well signposted from the main A6 to a secondary road. Any large outfit would turn gracefully into the large stack yard down on to the well proportioned hard standing serviced sites. The site nestles into rolling hills to protect you from any noise.

The toilet and grey waste water emptying facilities are clean and easily accessible, an absolute must if you intend to stay for long periods of time.

Penrith offers great facilities for young and old. Good pubs and an array of eateries. Good infrastructure. Intend to stay again shortly, we hope that we don't outstay our welcome! Oh forgot to say, the owners are pretty good as well!

Reviewer: Billyblade 1 review from this member

 Visited this great wee site for 5 nights in late July. The owners have created a lovely, peaceful 5 pitch site which is very well maintained with very spacious, level pitches ( hard stand for car and van, awning on grass ), The owners could not have been more helpful, thank you both. The site is so easy to get to and from, only a few minutes into Penrith where you can get all you need, and plenty of dining out or take away. Very accessible from M6 too but no noise at all on the site. Great wee stop over on-route so try it out! Craig has also managed to get a WC and wash facilities on site now for those with tents, and has further plans for the site in the near future. Prices are very reasonable at 12 for caravan/motorhome with EHU, and 8 for tent with up to 4 people. Well behaved dogs are welcomed. Will definitely be visiting again ! Thanks again for a lovely stay.

Reviewer: Tony t bone 10 reviews from this member

 An excellent site. Arrived and pitched up and was then given a warm welcome by the site owners. The order of this site was peace when we visited as we were the only unit there. Facilities minimal and this is reflected by the 10 per night price which represents excellent value. Clean water, EHU, grey waste and chemical disposal all available and all spotlessly clean. On leaving the site we were again visited by Jamie, the site owner to ask us if all was well. He even asked if we had any suggestions as to how the site could be improved. To be honest I don't think much can be made in the way of improvements. Jamie is already looking at providing a Toilet and Shower block. If anything I would suggest WIFI.

Plenty do do in the area and a good meal is to be had at reasonable prices at the Beehive Pub. A thoroughly enjoyable stay and this site is now firmly on my favourites list!

Reviewer: Kazndsteve 1 review from this member

 What a great find we wanted a site near to the Lakes but also close enough to the M6 so we could visit Scotland and this ticked all the boxes. Although only 10 mins away from the M6 the site is set in beautiful countryside with great views, it has five pitches two which are fully serviced which was great. Pitches are flat and set on stones / gravel, facilities were clean and in easy distance. Although no shower or toilet block at 10 per night we were certainly not complaining. Locally there were good pubs and places to walk as well as castles and places of interest. Penrith was 10 mins away by car, we took the opportunity to shoot up the M6 to Gretna (not to get married) to visit the famous Blacksmiths shop which was great. The owner was extremely polite and friendly and was happy to help and give advice if needed. We would certainly go back as it was a great place to stay to explore. Our only minor gripe was that the electric could do with being uprated as it tripped a couple of times however the owner is sorting this out. Lovely place, Thank you!

 This is a real gem of a site! it only opened this year and is still being developed but still, WOW.

We came up for a weekend with the intention of visiting Penrith, which is comfortably within walking distance or a very short drive, we loved it. Easy access for motorhomes and caravans off the A6 and just five minutes from M6 J44, we were amazed at how beautiful the countryside around the site is with loads of great walks, pubs and places to go and see. The site is currently five large hard standing pitches with electric and a large area for tents. There is fresh water, a toilet and grey water and chemical toilet disposal point, at the time of writing this there is no shower or washing facilities but hey, you have them in your unit anyway. The site owners are friendly motorhomers who understand what we need and really helped us out when we has a serious issue with our vehicle, we will definitely be going back to Crossfells Campsite and would recommend you give it a try too. My overall rating is our personal rating as we don't have kids and don't crave posh camping facilities, although I'm certain that in time these will all be available here.
