 Stayed here many times over the years, including a memorable tent invasion by a hungry hedgehog.

This was our first time with the campervan, there are four dedicated campervan pitches otherwise you park on the car parking hardstanding along the access roads.

Shower block was toasty warm with hot showers and underfloor heating, shop was adequate though pricey and quirky {no cereal bars, chickpea curry).

A short stagger to the Old Dungeon Ghyll pub which has a renowned climbers bar with fire, food, local ales, dog=friendly and free WiFi.

 I was blown away by this camp site

Stunning location

Considering the camp site was full it did not feel crowded at all.

The facilities were wonderful and very clean! I absolutely enjoyed my stay and would recommend 10/10

 All excellent, but no internet and even no mobile connection.

I forgot my watch in toilet, and found them in reception to my big happiness.

All clean in toilets and showers.

 The location is just stunning with awesome walks in all directions from the campsite. The campsite is generally well maintained and the facilities immaculate.

There are plenty of trees and hedges for shelter and this also breaks the site up into smaller units.

The place has a very safe feel and there was a lovely, friendly atmosphere.

However, it's not all good. The water pressure in the far wash block was poor and the showers weren't that hot. It seemed better in the wash block by the reception. The biomass unit emits an annoying intermittent hum so don't pitch too close. T

Here is no phone reception or WiFi, although this could be seen as a benefit!

26 for two and a medium tent isn't exactly a bargain either.

Finally, I had a hole chewed in my tent door by rats after a loaf of bread so the vermin control policy needs improving. Never had this happen before in over 30 years of camping.

There are two pubs within easy walking distance and a shop for essentials on site.

 Lovely campsite, the facilities are nice and clean and the staff are extremely helpful.

Our tent was a little worse for wear after a storm and they fixed it for us whilst we were away from the site.

There is absolutely no phone signal or Wi-Fi on the site which is great if you want to enjoy the peaceful surroundings without interruption.

Also two pubs situated nearby with friendly staff and customers.

Overall I Would highly recommend this camp site ❤️

 Great campsite with amazing views. Good value for money and all the amenities that was needed.

Make sure you take strong pegs though as I bent a few trying to put them into the ground 🤣

 The site itself is fantastic - an old favourite in a scenic location and close to great pubs.

We haven't been for a few years and were pleasantly surprised to find they now space people out a lot more - in the old days, tents were crammed together.

Also, the toilet & shower block has moved considerably upmarket with lovely tiles and heated floors - very luxurious for a campsite!

There was some confusion about our booking as we did it online at short notice and didn't get a reply.

However, we managed to get a space when we arrived as there are a small number of campervan spaces not booked in advance. We were very lucky.

Reviewer: Jbb1003 6 reviews from this member

 Second time we've been, and second time the campsite has flooded. We expected it this time, given the forecast, and pitched on higher ground, plus packed wellies and ponchos which made packing up much more pleasant.

However, the first time we went (summer '20) we were lucky with our pitch, but had to move our friends' tent and help several other campers move theirs. Either we are missing something, or there is no information provided by NT about possible flood zones here.

The campsite is great, the drying room is wonderful, the location is amazing. The fact that it floods, in a valley next to a lakeland beck, is unsurprising, but it would be nice to see it publicised a bit more (ie at all). The warden did come round last night and chat to everyone warning them the place was about to flood - but a bit late after you've already pitched.

Other comments

Toilets must have been installed by someone with no tape measure, the pans are way high off the floor!

Drying room is FAB and wish more sites had one.
