 Great location, minutes walk away from the lake and pubs, small town centre etc. Little narrow road leading to site which can be a disaster if you meet someone coming the other way, (which we did going as they don't seem to enforce arrivals after 12 rule!). Quite a small site, very popular must book early. Only problem we encountered was squatters in a tent who found the only empty pitch next to us who arrived after midnight, laughed and made noise all night and drank, then packed up at 8am and drove off! Reported this to wardens, very unsympathetic and disinterested. No security barrier on site. Would go again despite this, just make sure you're not next to an empty pitch!

This site is managed by the CC. The toilet block is similar to a regular CC one, perhaps not quite as good but certainly very clean and acceptable. The pitches are smaller than the usual CC ones so if you have a big van with a big awning you may struggle.

This is a very busy site so you will need to book well ahead at peak times. There is plenty to do in the area, and good tourist info available on-site.

My view was that you pay for the location, not the site. It's right in the middle of Bowness and so you've got a really nice place to explore on your doorstep without paying for parking. Its also a good base to visit Ambleside, Grasmere, etc.

The site itself is fairly basic - just shower / toilet block (which was very clean). There isn't a play area or anything for the kids but there is a nearby park. We thought the pitches were tight - if you've got an awning you'll have to park your car across the front of the caravan because they'll be no room at the side. We went at Easter when the site was full and it did seem a bit packed but didn't really bother us. All the pitches are hardstanding so rock pegs will be necessary for the awning.

The site shop doesn't really stock anything except milk but there's a co-op in Bowness itself.

 This is a Caravan Club Site however nonmembers are admitted.

Thursday morning, outfit ready, Grandson and dog excited, Wife relaxed ( no navigating to do ). Destination Braithwaite Fold cc site (non members welcome) in Bowness on Windermere.

A pleasant compact site, helpful wardens, "tip", try and avoid the pitches near the entrance, a little worse for wear. Dog walk 150yds away, poop-a-scoop, plenty of cow and sheep muck though. Fishing for Perch, Rudd, Pike, Trout, 500yds away , "N.T." land.

Great place for kids and parents, Road Train, Mini Golf just outside the site. Ten minutes walk away, lake cruises, cinema, shops, museums, pubs, etc. 25 will purchase a family ticket on the Lake cruiser, return trip on the Lakeside & Haverthwaite railway (usually steam) and back on the boat. A full and interesting day out, with plenty to do and see.

Personally I do not feel that Windermere is the jewel in the Lake District Crown. For one, I would not be tempted to row or even hire a low powered motor boat, too much speed and the occasional accident. All said and done, the Lake has a lot to offer other than messing about in the water.
