 Well set up small quiet site in a lovely setting.

Some walking from the site & handy for Penrith & the Eastern Lake District.

Recommend to us by a friend,

We would stay again.

Reviewer: Hoedown 55 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

 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!

Reviewer: Mdware 1 review from this member

 It was our second visit to this very pleasant campsite. Ideally located just off the M6. Perfect for stopovers or for longer stays.

Very friendly and helpful owners. Quiet, peaceful, surrounded by fields.

Hardstandings and grass, both with EHUs.

Highly recommended.

 No fuss, basic camp. Secure in a rural location.

No showers or toilets but everything else. Clean, quiet.

Just off M6 so good one night stop off with local attractions.

Reviewer: Caroly 1 review from this member

 A quiet peaceful rural setting with friendly efficient booking and welcome, despite covid restrictions.

Friendly campers nearby as usual, a beautiful sunset over the open fields to complete the evening after a rural walk along well- marked footpaths.

Reviewer: Peterinmalaga 5 reviews from this member

 An excellent site and very friendly and helpful owners. The location is perfect for a stay in the Lake District. Penrith is the best place in the area for shops, pubs, cafes and travel links (road, rail and coach). Clifton Dykes is 5 minutes from Penrith and 15 minutes from Ullswater, 30 minutes from Keswick. If this site is a stopover on the way north, spend an extra day or two visiting the Lakes, the most perfect place on the planet imho.
