10amp hook up & WIFI on site. All hard standing pitches & levelled concrete pads on each pitch. Only one chemical & waste water disposal but two fresh water fill up stations
19.50 per night high season, very clean, dogs free & small dog walk area. Need of car to go anywhere. TV reception very good, site is exposed so the wind can pick up on those odd days.

Our second visit to Ashes and cannot praise this adults only site enough. The facilities are first class and absolutely spotless. We spent 4 nights of absolute peace and quiet here with only the sheep and birds for company.
The site is well laid out with all pitches being hardstanding. We didn't use an awning but there were larger pitches that could accommodate an average size awning but I think some of the larger ones may struggle to keep them within the confines of the allocated pitch. Very easy access to the site from the M6.
If you are looking for peace and quiet and superb facilities and adults only you must try Ashes.

Have just returned from this fantastic site. Owners and wardens could not have been more welcoming and very helpful.

We really enjoyed as it is a adults only site.

The toilet blocks are the best we have ever seen, the whole site is immaculate. If anything the pitches could be slightly wider especially if you wanted to put an awning up.

We are looking forward to a much longer stay next year,hopefully it won't be so wet next time!

Absolutely fantastic in every way - easily accessible from M6 and what a gem! This was our first outing with our caravan and picked this site because of the fantastic reviews and accessible location and we were definitely not disappointed.

We arrived in the most horrendous weather to a cheerful, friendly welcome and a file packed with tourist information. Through the wind and rain, Alison guided us on to our pitch and gave us time to explain and point out the facilities.

The modern toilet and shower block (like the whole site) were always immaculate. How nice that everything worked as it should and was always so clean! The grounds are kept equally as pleasant - well kept grass and attractive borders. Upon each departure the hard standing was even freshly raked.

A reassuring feature of this site is the barriers for entry and exit - with a new caravan with every security device fitted possible, this was the icing on the cake!

All in all, a lovely, small, friendly site in a beautiful, peaceful location - thank you for a memorable stay and we look forward to our next visit.

We were delighted to discover this wonderful site which is set in beautiful countryside near Kendal. There are plenty of easy walks from the site and enjoyable excursions to the pretty towns of Kendal, Sedbergh and Kirby Lonsdale aswell as the fells of the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.

The friendly owners keep the site immaculate and well run. The pitches have delightful views and are extremely well mantained. There is a very smart toilet block which is the cleanest site facility that we have ever seen. We will certainly be back soon and would recommend the Ashes to others - but you need to book early as it is so popular.

We have just returned from yet another lovely stay at The Ashes. This is a little gem of a site if you like peaceful surroundings and clean facilities.

Luckily the weather was kind to us after all the torrential rain there has been this summer and we even enjoyed a little sunshine.

Having just read the review below we think some of the comments are a little unfair. We have been to this site a lot and will continue to return, rain or shine!

Reviewer: Brian Liz - Rhyl 2 reviews from this member

Found site to be very clean and ideally sited for all of Cumbria and Yorks. Dales. But downsides -were - site sloped both ways, estimated 10 feet in length over 13 pitches and estimated 3 feet across its width. Reviewer 'Tres' in 2007 mentioned flooding of pitch 13. We experienced 2 bad floods on pitch 16 with 2 mini rivers flowing through our awning and having to lift things off the floor in our 1 week stay. Also occupants of pitch 13 left after 3 days of a 2 week stay due to same problem and pitch 14 had same problem but were still on site when we left. Told by occupant of pitch 17 that same problem had occurred several days before our arrival. On site warden and on site owner not to be seen during floods (at night) and no info given by owner of flooding occurrences at times of booking or arrival. After booking some 4 months earlier and asking for a nice pitch I was told 'all pitches are nice'.

Must admit that following mornings after the heavy rains/storms, water had all but disappeared. Also good point - superb TV signal boosted by on site relay system. Pitches, hard standing were not over spacious if you had the regular 2.5/2.8 meter awning and car was on grass.Refuse point was outside excellent barriers but perhaps too far away. Good access road although anti clockwise. Only 1 sit down toilet cubicle in gents but spotless. Kendal only just down the road by car for other facilities and provisions.

Spent several days at this site whilst touring the lakes and then Scotland. It was the best site we stayed at over the whole two weeks.We were greeted by the wardens on arrival and shown to our pitch. The pitches were a good size with plenty of room for our camper and awning (you will need rock pegs if pitching an awning -warden sells them if like us you forget)and an additional grassed area for a car or in our case trailer with motorbike. Plenty of space between each pitch and beautiful tranquil surroundings.

We were a little concerned when told there were only two showers, although this is a small site it didn't sound enough. However it wasn't a problem at all and even if there had been a little waiting around we wouldn't have cared as the quality was excellent. We were treated to a whole heated room with a shower cubicle better than ours at home and plenty of space to get changed - no balancing on one foot trying to keep dry and get dressed. Toilets were immaculate too.Personally we enjoyed the peace and quite of no children running around too.The only slight problem we had was the lack of a local shop for milk etc.Supermarket near Kendal was closest - 10 min drive.

Friendly, welcoming wardens, great surroundings, peace and quite and fantastic facilities.Would highly recommend this site.

What a superb site, visited in June and was met by Bruce and Celia the wardens who help you on to your pitch, they are on duty Sat Sun and Monday. The Owners of the site then take over for the rest of the week who are also very helpful. The site is Immaculate and very peaceful, check out the sheep dog trial training near to pitch 13 in the evenings.
Toilet and Shower facilities consist of 2xLadies wc cubicles, 1x Gents wc & urinal also 2 unisex individual room showers where you have complete privacy once inside, also 1x unisex wc self contained also for disabled. These facilities are without doubt the cleanest I have ever come across. When a caravan leaves the site Bruce rakes the gravel area ready for the next visitor!
Kendal shopping centre is quite large and situated about 4 to 5 miles away with Asda being the closest Supermarket. The Station Inn pub is about 2 mls away serves nice food I would recommend this site and mark it as 10 out of 10 !

This is the second time we have been here and would return again.
No children playing football or running around caravans just the sound of birds and sheep and the odd low flying plane. This is a site where you can relax and enjoy the views and watch the farmer train his sheepdogs.
The showers are proper showers no push buttons, you can adjust the water temp to your own liking. As you would expect on a adults only they are very clean as are the toilets. The pitches are spacious and you dont feel that you are close to the next caravan. The wardens and the owners are very helpful giving you a green folder on arrival with lots of info in it that is very useful. The site is not far from the M6 or Kendal and is easy to get to. We found that it was a good base to go sightseeing around the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.
