Date of Visit: April 2014 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Iforce 2 reviews from this member

 On arrival at this site it was unattended by the owners, but we were told that if they were not on site then just choose anwhere on the site for our caravan. We met the owner about 4 days later and a very pleasant gentleman. The site is in a very secluded and quite location, and just the way we like it.

There is only 1 Shower (unisex), and while it is very clean and spacous, it is also I think quite expensive at £1 minimum per use. My main gripe is the power supply. I don't know what the amperage is but it was constantly tripping, fortuatly you are able to reset the trip yourself.

It is quite close to Egremont village with a large selection of Pubs and takaways. Whitehaven is also only ashort drive, there are many country and seaftont walks in the area.

I would visit this site again only if the Electric were better as it was quite a cheap site in comparison to most other sites. Goos overall value.

 A absolute gem of a site, if you want peace and quiet then this is the place for you. Lovely location, spotless site and facilities, fantastic hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them, the local area is breathtaking. We will be back for sure, it is a must for any camper/caravanners, fantastic value for money!

Just a word of advice for those travelling from the south, use the directions given on Rosegarth Farm`s own web site from the M6, we followed them going and had no bother, but was 20 miles further than the sat nav route. So decided to follow sat nav when we left. Big mistake with a tourer, we were up and down dale, on roads not much wider than a track, very hairy if you meet something the other way. We managed, but won`t make that mistake again!

 A fantastic site which we have used on 3 occasions. Owners are lovely, nothing is too much trouble for them, they don't live on site but visit every morning/evening to check you are ok. Facilities are basic but clean and the surrounding area is beautiful. Nearest shop (Co-op) is in Egremont, a 10 minute drive. We visit in a tent so a weekend is the longest we can stay as there are no facilities for refreezing ice blocks or doing laundry etc, something the owners are hoping to add in the future hopefully if planning permission is granted. It would certainly be a welcome addition to an already lovely site. 

Date of Visit: June 2013 Unit:  Motorhome
Reviewer: Liane1948 11 reviews from this member

 The owners of this site do not live here and when we stayed we were all alone! As we did not know the area we worried about our Motorhome when we went out. It just wasn't what we were used to I supposed.

The positives, this is a very nice site and very good value for money. Lovely views (Sellafield is not a problem its a long way away).

The shower is coin operated but great and kept lovely and clean as were the toilets.

Would visit this site again if others are staying too.

 An easy review for this site -

Location, location, location. The owners are excellent hosts and maintain a high standard throughout every aspect of the site along with exceptional value.

We have stayed here many times without disappointment. To correct a review posted by another visitor 16amp power supply is available in various locations on the site.

I believe that plans to extend the toilet/shower facilities are drawn & awaiting approval.

This is a must visit site for anyone exploring the peace & tranquillity of West Cumbria, the natural beauty of the lakes & fells or the vibrancy of Whitehaven etc

 Great little site, cracking views of the lake district though you may have to mentally block the glow from Sellafield.

Lovely little beach just down the road at St Bees, decent sized Coop at Egremont and all supermarket chains represented at nearby Whitehaven. Well sited just off the A595 so access to the NW of the lakes is easy. We had a week and spent four days in the lakes, and 3 at the beach.

EHU is a little light rated - we tripped it a lot, I think it was 6 amp. It is 'over 18s' but don't be surprised to see the odd kid there, they'll stay out of your hair though.

Showers are a quid and overpriced if I'm honest, would rather they were cheaper so you didn't overpay. We could get three showers out of a pound. That said you'll often find enough credit built up to cover your shower gratis.

All in all though, very quiet enjoyable stay and would definitely return.

 Rosegarth is a very quiet and very well run site. This was our second visit this year and it is now at the top of list. Steve and Mark are fantastic owners and keep the place spotless. The grass is cut regularly and although basic, the facilities are all you need.

The views from the site are tremendous, over fields to the mountains in the distance with fantastic cloud formations to watch especially at dawn and sunset. The beach is just minutes walk away. (You can hear waves instead of traffic noise. )

There are two garden centres close by, one with a restaurant and bar and Egremont (10 minute drive) has a medium sized Co-op, pharmacy, tourist info. Centre, pubs.

A perfect base for exploring the less crowded western lakes of Ennerdale and Wastwater, and Ravenglass gives easy access to Eskdale.

 We found Rosegarth through an internet search for camp sites without midges, following a previous break that was cut short by a midge plague.

Rosegarth is a small site near the sea in Cumbria. When we arrived there was only one other party pitched and it felt as if we had the whole campsite to ourselves. The owners were very helpful and made us feel welcome.

There is one shower only, which was ok for us due to the site being quiet. The washing up area is under cover, which would be useful in rainy weather.

There is a Cafe across the road, which is handy for a snack or if you don't feel like cooking.

All in all we had a lovely weekend break and Rosegarth and have added the side to our 'definite come back' camp sites.

Reviewer: Johnjory 124 reviews from this member

 Happy to agree with previous reviewers’ positive comments about what a nice site Rosegarth Farm is, and add some additional detail.

We used their permanently sited 1994 Adria Forma twin axle ‘van which comes equipped with everything except your bedding. Considering it is the Lake District and our visit was peak season, we felt it represented excellent value for money.

Overall, a very pleasant experience, however, you might like to note that the on board water heating has been disabled so you rely on boiling the kettle. Also that all water has been turned off and the sink removed in the toilet area, so there is no effective personal washing on board. No real problem as you are very near to the facilities.

The site is very quiet, level and beautifully presented with 4 hard standings and a further grass area. There are 3 horse paddocks adjoining the pitching area which contain Mark & Steve’s horses. , Despite flood warnings covering all Northern England and 6 days of very wet weather, the site showed no signs whatsoever of becoming boggy.

The facilities ‘block’ is a conveniently located small Portable cabin containing 2x wc’s and 1x shower (£1). The interior is very modern, well decorated and maintained. An excellent facility in CS / CL terms.

Vey dog friendly (no charge), but obviously they must not worry the horses. In fact dogs seemed to be accommodated virtually everywhere we went.

Make sure you arrive with provisions as, other than the restaurant in the nearby garden centre, there are no local shops. Nearest are in Egremont, and the major supermarket chains are in Whitehaven.

The Hardnott Pass between Boot and Little Langdale must be the most extreme public road in the UK. It is a great drive, but I strongly recommend not going in anything larger than a car / 4x4; not going during adverse weather; and exercising every caution. I am not exaggerating!

To sum up: Steve & Mark are very helpful people and their permanently sited ‘van saved us a very long haul with our own ‘van. Happy to recommend Rosegarth Farm in every way.

Reviewer: Shellles 6 reviews from this member

 We have just spent a lovely 3 nights at this site. The site is small and quiet, the owner was very friendly and helpful, often see him around the site doing various jobs and helping other campers.

Sufficient toilet, shower and waste facilities which are kept spotless. Within walking distance to beach, which our puppy loved. It can be a tight squeeze through the lanes to get to the site, but other drivers very good at reversing when necessary.

The site entrance is very well laid out, not too tight upon entering and the gate is far enough away so you are not blocking the lane whilst it is being opened.

Lots of room on site for manoeuvring the caravan and the owner told us the best position to face as the wind direction on windy days, which was very helpful as it did get very windy on one particular day.

Will definitely be coming back to this site.
