 What can we say about Alanholme - we've found our happy place! Part of me doesn't want to leave a review as we want to make sure we can always go back to this gem of a site.

Our 23 nights spent there this summer were actually in 2 blocks - 14 nights, then we went home for 2 weeks and then we returned for a further 9 nights. We originally booked another site for the second dates but loved our time at Alanholme so much that we desperately wanted to go back.

The site is just a couple of miles from the A66 but be warned that the road off the A66 that takes you to Long Marton is national speed limit and some drivers seem to think this is a target; take it steady as the road is only just wide enough for 2 vehicles.

Traffic on the A66 can be problematic as there are often accidents and roadworks which cause jams.

The village of Long Marton is lovely with a nice pub and the locals are so friendly. There are some great walks from the site, taking you across fields with fab views.

There isn't a shop in the village but it's only a few miles to the nearest petrol station on the A66 which has a shop selling the basics. Penrith isn't far away with plentiful shops, restaurants and takeaways. Appleby is even closer with a well stocked Co-op, nice fish & chip shop and other shops and cafes.

Facilities on the site are communal with showers charged at 20p for 2 minutes or £1 for 10 minutes so take some change with you. Joanne and Sam the owners work very hard to keep them spotlessly clean and Sam takes great pleasure in frequently mowing the grass on his ride-on mower.

There are several taps dotted around the site and waste water is disposed of by pouring on the side of the road through the site which has a soakaway. There's an Elson disposal point and the 16 amp electric hook-up is very reliable.

The free Wi-Fi is good but does slow down when the site is busy. Mobile phone reception is good. There is no play area on site but it is a very short walk to the one in the village. On a clear day the view from the site is quite simply stunning.

There is so much to do in the area which is in the North East of the beautiful Lake District. We walked miles with our dog who had the time of his life. Favourites were Glenridding/Ullswater, Pooley Bridge, Keswick where we walked around Derwent Water (11. 5 miles), High Cup Nick, Haweswater (12 miles of quite difficult terrain for over half of this), Brother's Water, Kirkby Stephen, Barnard castle and our favourite Buttermere.

We've still got lots to see in the area and have made friends with some lovely campers on seasonal pitches on site so we will definitely plan a return visit or three.

 Beautiful location, and a nice campsite with good facilities -

Toilets, showers, facilities for washing up.

The owner, Mike, was very friendly and helpful.

Wouldn't hesitate to go there again

 Nothing to dislike, beautiful views, when clear but then one cannot do anything about the weather.

Joanne and Sam a very hospitable couple who kept the place immaculate, the grass nicely cut and the recycling and waste bins washed out on a daily basis.

We has 3 good weeks and although the weather was very mixed didn't hold us back. Plenty of nice walks and places to visit.

Would certainly revisit and definitely recommend.

We always use our own facilities in the van but those on site were spotless. Thank you both.

 Stayed in the camping pod at Alanholme Caravan and Camping after a recommendation from the owner of another local site. What a find this place is!

Arrangements were made by email and the comms were very timely and concise.

On arrival the site is well manicured and very well run, the owners Joanne and Sam clearly have a lot of pride in their business but there is still a very laid back feeling at the site.

The shared facilities, toilets, showers, washing area etc were cleaned regularly throughout the day and I always found them in immaculate condition.

The location is amazing. We were there to do some hiking and there was a plethora of good walks within a stones throw. High Cup, Cross Fell, Dufton Pike could all be walked from the door and many other walks are within a short drive.

The pod itself was clean and tidy and contained all of the things you would need for a short trip. All we needed were airbeds and sleeping bags. The pod had heating and electric and a nice large deck out front. Perfect for visiting at any time of year and great value.

My 6 year old son enjoyed every moment of his stay and made some amazing memories. I can say that we will be back. Thank you

 Pleasant and very friendly stay and will return.

A bit lax on Covid protocol though with no signs or recommendations etc. This did not spoil our stay but made us very cautious about entering the amenities block.

 Excellent campsite very clean and well looked after by friendly hosts.

Plenty of walks around the area, such as Dufton Pike and High Cup Nick which begin in nearby Dufton.

We visited the Mason Arms Pub, a 5 minute walk from the site and the food was excellent.
