 A great site. Beautiful flat pitches, lovely grass.

On the edge of the lake district. Plenty to see and do.

A quiet site with just a hum of the nearby M6 and also handy for the A66.

Great welcome from site owner who was very helpful.

Site is approx 3 mile walk from Penrith centre, or 2 miles from parkrun.

There's nothing on site for children.

We paid £20 pn inc EHU.

I'm sure we'll be back

 What a well kept and clean site, Pitch 2 we were on was perfectly level, no ramps needed.

The toilet was super clean and obviously well looked after and a very good drive over point for motorhome waste.

Spoke to the owner's who were very easy going and very helpful, the and site is within easy reach of the M6, a little bit of road but not annoying.

The surrounding areas have plenty so see and do and with supermarkets only a 10 minute drive away.

Very impressed, and only £20 pn with EHU

 This was a quiet site handy for both the M6 and A66.

It was a tidy site with hard standing or grass for caravans or motorhomes and water and electrics on each pitch.

There were lovely views

Reviewer: MALCOLM WAIN 4 reviews from this member

 Small and friendly campsite, ideal for Kendal Calling where my wife and I were working.

You get exactly what is listed.

Owner allowed us to stay extra night at very short notice and was willing to allow us a late exit without extra charge if we preferred.

 Easy to book and on line paying system good.

Well kept site with beautiful views.

No showers and just one toilet which was very clean.

Owners very friendly. We got a taxi into Penrith itís well worth a visit. However, we struggled to get one back please be aware of this.

Reviewer: Hoedown 77 reviews from this member

 We were squeezed in at the last minute on a grass pitch and paid £17 pn. One toilet is available as well as a drive-over drain for motorhomes.

You have to phone on arrival to get the code for the gate and are told your pitch number, we did not actually see the owners whilst we were there.

It is handy for a stop-over but there is not much to do in the immediate area

Reviewer: Zozo3791 6 reviews from this member

 An absolute gem of a site. We stayed for one night while heading to the highlands of Scotland. Easy to find and very peaceful.

Code required for the gate. We were up and off early the following day.

We will stop again next year to break the journey up. Couldn't fault the site for a stop over.

 Just staying the one night to break the journey north to Scotland, like many others. Easy to find, not far off the motorway so there is a bit of road noise in the distance.

The site is spacious and tidy - pitches around edge of field and grass area in the middle (for tents?) with one WC, no showers but water, CDP and some local info. We paid £17 EHU.

We didn't see the owners and wouldn't expect to for a one night stay but spoke to them to get the gate code.

There was a strong farming smell on our arrival day (slurry spreading??) so we had to keep our windows closed. The pungent smell was gone the next day when we set off. Just one of those things on farms!

Also, all nearby pubs were fully booked or only open to residents for meals or not serving meals that week so book ahead!
