This beautifully keps site was our location for the May Bank holiday weekend.

The site is well laid out on a gentle slope with a large landscape garden in the centre, creating a pleasant outlook from all pitches.

The pitches are gravel hard standing with two concrete pads for wheels. With our van parked on these we had perfect level side to side. Our pitch sloped downwards slightle and levelling blocks for the front steadies was essential.

EHU was close to the pitch and I only needed my 5m cable this time.

The only issue I could see was that one pitch was right next to the chemical disposal point. While this was clean with absolutely no smell, it would be a bit of a busy pitch with frequent visitors to the facilities (which included myself)!

My husband and I wanted a few days break after caring for my Mum full time for 6 months. We needed peace and quiet so picked an adults only and that is what we got. Site was spotless quiet and beautiful. Only noise was the sheep. Owners and wardens very helpful and the file given on arrival is a great help. Site is sloping down and we were pitch 13 the furthest from the toilets but still only 1 min walk.

We found the site perfect for getting around the Lakes and very close to Yorkshire locations too.

Will definitely return when we need more rest. Very good value too.

Our 1st long weekend of the season so chose this very local to us adults only site. Very easy access and welcoming wardens. Small site and small pitches, hardstanding room enough for van and awning or in some cases just the van. Cars parked on grass next to pitch which in the inclement weather we have just endured got churned up a bit. Beautiful back drop of rolling fields and hillside and no road noise, the only noise was that of the sheep, lambs and birds tweeting. Due to the severe weather apocalypse we had, very strong winds and extremely heavy rain meant the loss of our small porch awning, the pegs remained but the fibreglass poles didn't survive the onslaught. Now we know for future reference that a more substantial winter awning would be better for this exposed hillside retreat. Minimal shower facilities, but only a small site so not a problem for us as we use our own facilities more over. The site was well maintained with very short grass, no weeds on hardstanding that I saw anyway and communal areas spotless. Lovely area in the middle of site comprising of flowers / shrubbery and a couple of picnic benches. Lots of bridlepaths to walk the dogs along and most are well signposted and in the information pack given on arrival, lots of local info for activity ideas and places to visit. Will visit again but be more mindful of the weather forecast as the winds really didn't make for a very comfortable restful evening with the van rocking like it did. Would recommend the Station Inn at Oxenholme for a wonderful sunday lunch. I would happily stay again, a weekend is long enough here for us but being only 40mins away from home, and ideal quick and easy get away.

This small but perfectly formed site is in an awesome setting & even though it is only 3 miles from the motorway it is so peaceful.

Loved the concrete places for tyres as caravan was level. Loved the underfloor heating in the showers with lashings of hot water. Lots and lots of places to go. Try Wray Castle an unusual property. We went to Cartmel, home of the famous sticky toffee pudding well worth a visit. This was a 41/2 trip for us us from home to site but worth it. We will be back and stay longer too.

Another night stopover on our way to the Hebrides. This site is so convienant to the M6 but you wouldn't think so as it's surrounded by farmland. The campsite is beautifully kept. The showers etc are spotless. The small enclosed dog run is excellent for 3 excited terriorists to let off some steam. A warm welcome from the wardens too. We have decided that next time we'll spend more than one night in this hidden little gem. Highly recommended.

We stayed at The Ashes for 7 nights as the major part of our three week tour Up North. The owners and the wardens are all very friendly and helpful, and between them they keep this small site looking immaculate. The facilities are all well looked after and are just about right for a site with only 24 pitches.

If you are looking for a small site that is nestled in rolling hills then you need look no further. It is well placed just a few miles from the M6 and Kendal with its good selection of shops is only ten minutes away. The lakes Windermere and Coniston are only a short drive away, so The Ashes is not far from the beautiful scenery of the Lake District.

National Trust must dos are a trip on the Steam Yacht Gondola on Coniston Water, and the old farm house Townend at Troutbeck near Windermere. Just north west of Kendal is Plumgarths Farm shop which is very good for fresh meats, eggs, fresh bread baked by the Artisan bakers and cakes from the cafe.

We stayed at the Ashes twice. We had three nights there on the way up to Scotland and were happy to stop there again for one night on the way home. This is an immaculately maintained site, very tranquil in a lovely setting of rolling hills. The only noise was from the lambs in an adjacent field and a nearby farmer who spent many hours training sheepdogs.

The grounds are beautifully kept. The site is on a slope and so the owners have built strategically positioned concrete slabs into the pitches so as to ensure that caravans will always be level. Nice touch and a very simple idea.

The toilet and shower block is small but very clean and maintained to a very high standard.

The dog walk is a very small area at the bottom end of the site and so any meaningful exercise for your dog would need to be off site.

The owners and wardens are very friendly and helpful. We would thoroughly recommend the site for a stay or as a stopover as it is only about 2 mies from the motorway and 5 from Kendal. All in all a lovely little site

Spent a week here at this Adults Only site near Kendal on the edge of the Lake District. Really easy to find as its only 3 miles from Jct 37 of the M6, but you wouldn't think so as it was so peaceful, the only sounds we heard all week were from the sheep and cows in the surrounding fields. Good size flat handstanding pitch with inset concrete areas for the wheels of the van to go on. I can see the idea behind this but it did cause us problems with our porch awning as it meant that we couldn't get it right next to the van because our rock pegs to guy it down wouldn't go through concrete so there was a gap between the edge of the awning and the van. Wardens provided us with a pack of information which was really useful and we added to it during the week. Facilities were good and always clean, showers hot and quite powerful and come with underfloor heating. I do have slight niggle with the showers though - there was only 2 which is a reasonable number for the site, but they open directly on to the outside so if they had been occupied there is nowhere to wait which could be an issue if it was raining (which being the Lake District it does quite often). Paid WiFi was available (reasonable cost I suppose) and the TV signal was excellent. In summary a nice site and we would return if we were in the area again.

Stayed for 3 nights at this gorgeous site. We were met at the gate by Alison and she went through the details about the site and handed us a folder with a lot of info about the area.

The site is beautifully kept. Pitches and grounds are perfect. The ablutions are second to none and the hot showers are free! TV signal is retransmitted and delivers a perfect signal.

My only grip is the cost of the WiFi but luckily when strategically placed we got 3g

Thank you for a lovely, peaceful stay.

Definitely recommended to all.

Well signposted and easy to find, this is a small quiet campsite but well looked after and in a nice location with great views of the countryside.

Our pitch had been constructed to be level (some others looked to be done similarly) even though the site was on a slope, which was a nice touch and saved getting the blocks out and levelling up ourselves

Showers & toilets were clean and well maintained as well as laundry & washing areas (although didn't use these).

Only stayed the one night but thought this was a pleasant site and good value for money
