Just back from a week at this lovely peaceful site. On arrival we were greeted by the friendly, helpful Warden, who showed us our pitch, and pointed out the location of the facilities etc.

The Ashes is just 3 Miles from J37 of the M6, and the access Roads are very good. The location is great for visiting both the Lakes and the Western Dales.

The site is very well laid out, the Toilet and Showers immaculate and although only 2 Showers, as mentioned in previous posts, we never had to queue, even though the site was quite busy. The grass is very well kept, as are the hedges and shrubs. You can see why it has a 5 Star rating.

Within a couple of hours of arriving, my Partner had decided this was a site we'd definitely return to, which says a lot!

WiFi access cost 15 for a week, which is good value compared to 'Club' Sites and connection was very good. Digital TV reception is excellent due to the Booster provided.

The site really was very peaceful and the only noise was from the Sheep in the adjoining Field. We were blessed with good weather and it was so relaxing, sitting outside the 'van.

Kendal with all the Shops you could ever need is about miles from the Site, and you'll also find plenty of places to eat.

The Owner is a fellow Caravanner, and this certainly shows with the attention to detail she gives to the Site.

This is a Site you must visit if you want peace and quiet. We will certainly return.

I am a disabled caravaner and was made aware that the site was not fully disabled friendly prior to booking, from what I saw it was the site for us. There is one toilet I found adequate with handles etc. Though there is no specific disabled facilities. Not suitable for wheel chair bound.

You are greeted when you arrive by very friendly owners, they offered to assist setting up. Was given a pack with all the local shops doctors and all kinds of very useful information including post codes for the sat navs.

The site is kept immaculately including the facilities and has very nice views of the surrounding countryside with a distant view of Morcombe bay.

The country side around the lake district is stunning, nice friendly people. Great shopping in all the larger towns. Plenty to see and do even for disabled folk like myself.

Would definitely stay there again and would recommend to others. Ideally situated to tour lakes or Yorkshire,

Recommendations to the owner and not to put people off,

Its only a small site would ask you to consider water taps to pitches or more points. I found it difficult to collect water.

Possible another waste water disposal point further up the field.

Thank you for an enjoyable stay

This site is a little bit misleading as it seems to be on the outskirts of Kendal whereas it's actually a fair distance away both from Kendal and everything else. Nice little site but not as peaceful and quiet as we were expecting as, the entire afternoon and evening of our first day there we were deafened by the sound of some sort of motor or grinder coming from a tractor repair place behind the site. The second day it was only on for a couple of hours but we were glad we weren't staying long. Other than that, there is absolutely nothing to do here - the bridleways are so badly overgrown you can't possibly walk them and the bus timetable is so complicated you need to be a Philadelpia lawyer to even start to understand it. The facilities on the site were spotlessly clean but, come on, 1 shower and 2 loos for the ladies and the same for the men on a site potentially holding just under 50 people? Not at all acceptable. I won't go back.

First of all the negative points. There are none! A beautifully well maintained site set in a small hamlet some 10 minute drive from the M6. On arrival we were met at the gate by the site warden, shown to our pitch and given a useful folder containing local info. It is a small site with a spotless toilet/shower block, there are two showers and male and female toilets, but at no time did we ever wait to use the facilities, outside the shower, a mop is provided to clean down after use, and as I said they are spotless.

The pitches are hard standing so pack rock pegs, though the warden does have them and levelling blocks to purchase if you need them. We take our dog with us and as mentioned there is a small exercise area, but the lanes around the park are very quiet for further jaunts.

Kendal is a 10 minute drive away and is a lovely town. The rest of the area outstanding beauty. We will visit this lovely site again and almost want to keep it a secret as it's wonderful!

We've just got back home from our 2nd stay at this site. Absolutely awesome site with bags and bags of peace, quiet and relaxation. Just as it was last year everything is kept in pristine and spotless order. You could not improve this site if you tried. The owner is more than helpful if you have any questions about the surrounding area and towns. The pitches, borders, flowers, shrubs, wash and shower facilities plus the washing up and veg preparation area are still second to none. This site is extremely highly recommended. We cant wait till our next trip there next year. A+++.

Great little adults only site with very clean and warm facilities and with fantastic views, totally surrounded by rolling Cumbrian countryside.

Its a 3 mile walk to the local, so there and back tired me out, although it was worth it.

It's a 10 minute drive to Kendal which is an interesting old town with traditional and modern shops.

I like this site because its only about 7 minutes from the M6, so easy to get to and well sign-posted. Access is good eastwards to Sedburgh and the moors beyond, plus of course its right on the edge of the Lake District.

The site manager/owner is lovely, being helpful and knowledgeable.

Wi-fi is chargeable, but I can't remember that it was too expensive.

Would we go again ?? Well we've been twice already

Returned to this site because we had such a Great time before. The site is quiet and the owners and wardens are very friendly and helpful. As it is adult only there are no young children running about, for pet owners (it is a dog friendly site)there is an area for them. The toilet blocks are always very clean as is the shower facility. There is an area for washing your pots etc. And they do a laundry service for a reasonable price. It is well positioned to explore the Lakes to the west, and the Yorkshire moors to the east. Kendal the nearest town is good to visit and there are many shops and supermarkets to go shopping for just about anything.

What a beautiful site this is. The grounds are kept extremely well with a huge amount of attention to detail. On arrival you are shown to to your pitch and also given a green folder packed with all sorts of information on things to do and places to go on your stay. We were lucky enough to meet a lovely couple whom we had met on a previous site this year.

he showers, washrooms and washing up rooms are spotless with plenty of hot water. There is a pen to exercise and walk your dog inside with plenty of fields and walks outside of the site if required, our dog loved it. There is a tv signal booster aerial which gives a good picture to most freeview stations.

One or more days visits into Kendal is advised as its a lovely little town with plenty of shops as well as places to visit. All in all a lovely place to stay and will definitely be going there again, especially as its only an hour or so away for us, ideal for a long weekend as it was for us. We only wish we had gone for longer.

We stayed here for over 2 weeks in August. The site is spotless. Very clean toilets and showers.

The views are really lovely and it was wonderful to wake up to the sounds of farm animals and birds, opening your curtains and seeing the beautiful surroundings.

Quite a bit out of the way but some really beautiful countryside walks. There is a bus to Kendal although its about 3/4 mile away. Station is about 2 miles away with directly links to London and Manchester Airport.

TV and internet excellent.

Would recommend this site.

Stayed here for 8 nights. An excellent adult only site with country side views in all directions. The site lives up to its 5* rating.

The warden was very friendly and welcoming on arrival and showed us to our pitch. The information pack was very useful.

The on site facilities were immaculately kept.

The location was very peaceful and well worth a visit if you are looking for a relaxing break in the Lake District.

Walk to the nearest pub was very pleasant - approx. 45 minutes thought the lanes with lovely country side (about 10 mins max by car).

Site was easy to find and very close to the M6 and other towns. Kendal 4 miles.

Well worth a visit to Bowness - on Windemere and can recommend the boat trips.

Wi Fi was available and good reception.

Will look forward to visiting the site again and highly recommend a stay at this site.
