Site not far off M6 which is convenient for stopover on way to Scotland.

Site was pretty and very clean as were the toilets and showers. Only two ladies' cubicles and two washbasins so was very cosy. I prefer a larger room with more facilities. Thoughtful provision of spray air freshener, did not need to use my own! Friendly and helpful owners and wardens with comprehensive information folders.

Missed not having a small shop or sale of bread and milk in reception area. Forget anything and it is a car ride away. Peaceful and nice scenery with cows arriving on the adjacent hill every morning. Suit campers who like to get away from it all.

Stopped here on the road home to break up the journey. Ended up staying 2 nights. A very busy site. It put the full up sign up shortly after we arrived and for every van that moved on, another replaced it soon after!

Nice setting in the hills just outside Kendal. Very handy for the town and surround Lakes area. Just off the M6 so its a very handy stop over for onward travel. Asda very near the site and the local pub was welcoming and had lovely food, however a long walk (only a couple minutes drive tho).

This site is very well kept, the toilet block is immaculate. The toilet is small but well laid out and warm. There is a TV booster which worked brilliantly, just extended the Status ariel in the 'van and connected the Freeview and got a great digital signal.

I will definitely be staying here again.

Stayed one night here in VW campervan with my border collie. Booked late and got pitch (11)next to water point so was quite busy. Quite nice views beyond the water point!

Toilet/shower facilities great - very new and clean.

Did not visit any local facilities like a pub or shop and there did not appear to be anything obviously close. Off-lead dog walk on footpath about 50 yds from site entrance.

Site OK for 14 per night. Thought the two-day wifi charge at 5 a bit steep, when only staying for one night.

Well this is the third time on this camp sit. If its peace and quiet you want, then this is the place for you, stunning views from all angles, spotless toilet / shower block.
Set in the lovely village of new hutton, there are no shops or pubs within walking distance but kendal is only 4/5 miles away, you can catch a bus from the main road about a mile from camp or go in the car.
Visit sedberg or dent two more lovely places with good pubs,cafe's etc.
Back to the site itself, very very well kept and one of my favourites with a very warm welcome from the proud owners.

Absolutely beautiful setting for this site. Very rural even though only 4 miles from Kendal. Everything immaculate and clean. Very modern toilet block, showers adjustable, rubber mat and a wooden seat inside. The one next to the ladies has the biggest standing area. . 16.50 for a hardstanding pitch with EHU in high season. Good value. Need blocks as this is a sloping site. Lovely grassed area in middle with flowers. Wardens on over weekend and owner rest of the week. WI-FI available, first time my husband has been able to use his lap top on a site. Costs 5.00 for 48 hours. Boosted TV signal as well. Point aerial towards the loo block.

It was glorious weather when we were there. 7/8/9th August. Sheep dog training in field at bottom of site. Poo area at bottom of site for doggies. Half the caravans had dogs. Adult only site, brilliant. 2 days deposit required. Barrier system at gate. Recycle bottles and cans. Unlike another reviewer I thought the bins outside the site was a good idea, no smelly bins on site. I think its also so the bin lorry doesn't need to be let through barrier. Something wrong if you can't walk a short distance to the litter bins. The furthest away caravan can only be 130 meters to bin.

We went to Grange-over-Sands, lovely old town, lots of eating places and nice walks. Would come again when in area.

My wife and I were booked in for a week but only stuck it for four nights. Only two showers, three toilets and one urinal, not enough for potentially forty eight people and no shelter if its raining and they are all full. Dog walking area is the rain run off area and very small, not allowed to put awning on grass and the extra long rock pegs that we brought wouldn't hold down the awning in the wind ( and it does get windy here ) because the ground is very loose due to the added drainage required to prevent flooding.

The facilities were indeed spotless and the owners friendly and helpful as stated elsewhere.

However just be aware that there is nowhere to wash your pots and pans. We planned our stay along with friends in 2 other vans. When we meet up, we like to take turns hosting our evening meals. As you would expect, the washing up for 6 people is a real pain in a small caravan sink. Maybe we don't get around enough, but this is the only site we have visited without washing up facilities.

2 showers for 25 pitches and notices in the WCs saying basins for washing hands only don't quite seem up to 5 star standards to us.

However the site was very popular and every pitch was in use during our 5 day stay, so maybe it is just me.

Had a wonderful two night stay here in in July. Perfect peace and quiet and lovely area. Spotlessly clean site throughout, an absolute credit to the owners and wardens. Owner was hugely helpful on arrival pointing out where everything was, even giving us a ring binder full of ideas for things to do and places to visit locally. Will certainly be returning here soon.

Didn't enjoy this site, facilities on site are clean but lack essentials.

Only 2 showers to cover 27 pitches, likewise the gents toilet has only one cubicle and one urinal, as far as I know the ladies had two cubicles. There is also no dish wash up area.

The new drainage system exits into the on walk area so don't forget your wellies.

Got friendly with a Welsh couple who at 8.30 in the evening asked where everyone was, they laughed when I said probably in bed as its the most lifelest site we have ever been on.

I stayed here for 2 nights and what a lovely site it is, what can i say that as not already been mentioned. The owners and staff are so helpful nothing seems too much trouble to make your stay pleasant.
The facilities can only be described as first class, spotlessly clean, the grounds are very well looked after new drainage as been laid to prevent flooding on lower pitches (after the rains of 2008}.
I will certainly be staying again in the near future, anyway dont take my word book a visit and see for yourself, if it's peace and quiet you want this is the place to be.
