 Views lovely! If paths/roads were covered with stones/ gravel it would be much nicer as it was very muddy and lots of pot holes.

Little shop and cafe on site but didn't use.

Short walk to lovely Pooley Bridge Village.

 What a beautiful place! We stopped here on the way to Scotland and really wanted to stop here on the way back!

Views were to die for, right on the lake ( we parked up further back but could still see the lake) within a short beautiful walk along the waters edge is the village with pubs and restaurants - really yummy food!

Site has all amenities. be careful after driving over water drain to deposit your water its a tight turn back out if you don't go back a little. I didn't and nearly took their drainpipe off!

The people working there are so nice and helpful.

Great for having fun in the lake.

All in all a great find and we will come back in the summer.

 The upside; The Locations is good. You can walk along the lock to Pooley Bridge.

You can hire a canoe on site. Dog friendly.

The downside; It is a big busy site, the facilities were unclean it was busy.

Plenty of children running round.

 Beautiful campsite. Very popular and busy. I enjoyed my stay here. Everyone was very friendly.

Amazing views of Ulswater lake. If you have inflatable water rafts or anything to enjoy the lake pack it! I think you can do wild swimming. Double check with the campsite though.

 Lovely site but just so busy and noisy! Toilets ok but really not enough for the amount of people.

Signs in the ladies shower block saying do not brush your teeth there(!) There is a freezer for blocks but no fridge available. Sinks for dishwashing are in the open with no shelter apart from a couple at the entrance.

Donít consider this site if you want peace and quiet, itís full of families and friends in large groups. If that suits you itís lovely with access to the lake and a lakeside walk into pooley bridge and lots of dogs.

Doubt if weíll be back though.

 Waterside site is in a beautiful location, with amazing views, situated right on the banks of lake Ullswater

Excellent facilities on site

Site staff were very helpful and friendly, even with the site being full throughout our stay!

Very quiet site after 10pm

 We usually avoid large sites but this one was nice - adequate facilities, plentiful hot water, good weather, lakeside site (kayak and paddleboard hire)

Reasonably quiet (even during the Euros),

Friendly staff and easy walking distance to Pooley Bridge.

We'll use it again.

 Fabulous setting, very helpful and polite people working at the site.

Ideal place for walking from site or travel by car to start your hike. Not far either into pooley bridge which offers few pubs, cafes and shops.

You could actually stay at the site and fish, swim or kayak, loads of other things to do than just walk.

I will be back.

 Just returned having spent 3 nights in a POD at Waterside Farm.

The location was PERFECT, the PODs are separate from the rest of the site.

Stunning views, so lucky with the weather.

I was able to access Barton Fell and follow the scenic Ullswater Way to Howtown and back, a steady 8mile undulating route. Fab.

The facilities on site are 1st class, the staff are accommodating and happy to pass the time of day.

Pooley Bridge is a short walk away along the lake shore.

For me it was the easy access to the fells and get away to enjoy nature.

We'd forgotten just how good it is to spend some time in the UK and only 2hrs away.

A great site, thankfully not too commercial like the one nearby that we don't talk about. Horses for courses and all that.
