 We are a couple with small two birth touring caravan.

I would seek Barbara's advice if taking a large touring unit.

Barbara sent an email with directions a few days prior to our visit these turned out to be useful as you will avoid steep narrow winding roads.

We had a great few days loved the area best views from pitch four and five, plenty-full great walks from the site, near to the village 1. 8 miles away where you can get all your needs, a short drive will take you to places of interest and more walks.

The single toilet doubles up as an information point.

The site and facilities just as described, level hard-standing shale, well worth a visit/stay.

Nights stayed: 2 Travelling as:  Mature couple
Reviewer: Bofs 83 reviews from this member

 We have just spent 2 nights here and had a relaxing and peaceful break.

The site seems rather small at first sight but the 5 all hard-standing pitches are well laid out and fairly private despite being quite close together. There is an electric hook-up for each pitch and a shared water point and grey water grid. The toilet, chemical disposal point and bins are down a short path towards the owners' house. The site is right next to the road but there is little traffic and it is very quiet day and night. We had no problem entering or leaving the site with our 6. 3 metre long caravan and think it would be fine for all but very large outfits.

The owners are friendly yet not intrusive and have taken a lot of trouble to add the little extras that make a huge difference to a site, such as a bench overlooking the amazing views and a grassy hollow with a picnic bench and an open fireplace for barbecues etc. We particularly appreciated the laminated instructions for local walks along the many public footpaths in the area, which were detailed and easy to follow, and the very informative things to do / places to go sheet, all obviously written from personal experience. Despite seeming to be in the middle of nowhere, the village of Broughton-in-Furness with cafes, pubs, an assortment of independent high quality food shops, a petrol station and a Tourist Information Office is under 3 miles away and Coniston Lake and village are about 7 miles in the other direction. In the summer there is a bus service (2 or 3 times daily I think) to both these places (and beyond) which will pick you up and drop you off at the campsite gates - timetables are in the Toilet / information room.

This was our first visit but we will definitely return especially as the site has the advantage of being open all year.

 We have just returned from a great weekend at this beautifully located CL.

The owner Barbara and her family made us feel very welcome and were very informative about the local area.

The site is located 3km from the village of Broughton in Furness, it took us about 40 minutes to walk through the woodland to get to the village square.

Here you will find 3 bars, a general store a butchers and a lovely bakery which has a tea room adjoining it.

At the back of the site, over the hill you will find another pub called The Blacksmiths, and we were told it serves fantastic food.

If you are looking for a relaxing break this site is a must.

We will definitely be returning. 


Date of Visit: June 2012 Unit:  Campervan
Reviewer: Bendwg 14 reviews from this member

 Just returned from a couple of days at this site. Great little place with great views and some good walks direct from site to local village.

Basic facilities, single toilet with hot and cold water, kept very clean. Only five pitches so ample. Owners very pleasant and you get a lot of feedback on booking and your left to your own devices on site but they are available as needed.

Your pretty close to your neighbours and the road but there's no noise on a night, roads very quiet.

No problem for us but if I had a larger unit I would check out the access as its a little tight. That said there was a twin axle caravan and a discovery on site with no issues.

Will gladly return for another relaxing weekend.
