 One of the nicest sites we have been to and we loved the location. 10 minute walk on a footpath to pretty Hawkshead village with pubs, cafes, shops, bus, and everything you need.

The site was spacious and light with lovely open views. Extremely generous fully hardstanding serviced pitches and a modern toilet/shower block, 4 showers in each block.

The staff were helpful, especially with change for the laundry.

We paid £27. 50 per night.

We found the road from Coniston very narrow in places so took the bus to Ambleside.

 Absolutely gorgeous site.

Shower blocks etc the best I’ve ever seen on a campsite.

Quiet site with friendly staff.

Only a few minutes walk from the delightful village of Hawkeshead.

 This was a great site run by a lovely family who deserve great credit for the set up they have achieved.

Spotless site from the toilet blocks to the actual grounds.

Just a short walk into Hawkeshead and a short car drive into ambleside. You can take the path from the site into ambleside if your feeling energised.

Fantastic stay and a little gem set in breathtaking scenery.

Reviewer: Creasey-jones 3 reviews from this member

 What a lovely site! Booking and arrival by phone was very easy and meant zero contact so extremely covid safe. The site is very well laid out, very clean neat and tidy. Spacious pitches and nicely arranged over the site area. Very clean and plentiful showers, toilets and washing up areas, plus a laundry should you need one.

It's a 1/4 mile walk along a grassy footpath by a little steam into Hawkshead so boots probably required when it's wet. You probably could walk along the road but there's no footpath and it's a busy road, which we couldn't hear from our pitch!

Hawkshead is a beautiful and very popular village so this is an ideal site.

The pubs are having to turn people away due to covid issues ie staff shortages, which apparently has resulted in people giving them bad reviews, very sad and unnecessary I feel as we couldn't fault any of the pubs we managed to get in, the food and beers were spot on.

You just have to accept its the way things are at the moment, these people are doing their best and trying to earn a living, no need to make things even harder for them.

Plenty to see and do in and around Hawkshead. Coniston and Windermere are both walkable, which I've done in previous years, not by road I may add, it's a hike to both so you need to be prepared, but if you're walking in the Lakes you'll probably have all that in hand anyway.

Wish we could've stayed another night but it was fully booked. Would definitely book again.

 We had a lovely level hardstanding pitch, the facilities are excellent and the showers were very good.

The staff are helpful especially in my case with change for the laundry.

There is a footpath between the campsite and the village where there is an excellent selection of shops and eateries, the footpath also leads to other walks.

 One of the best sites we have been to. Loved the location. Easy 10 minute walk on footpath to pretty Hawkshead village with pubs, cafes, shops, bus, and everything you need.

The site was spacious and light with lovely open views. Extremely generous fully serviced pitches with hardstanding. Immaculate modern toilet/shower block, 4 showers in each block.

We found the road from Ambleside very narrow in places with the caravan but have been told there is an easier route from Newby Bridge which we will try next time.

We will definitely return.

 A lovely site. Well maintained, facilities very clean.

Pitches are well spaced. It really has been a pleasure to be here, even in torrential rain !

The local pub, the Outgate Inn serves very good pub food.

As previous reviewers have said, this really is a find. Will definitely be back.

 In terms of location, spaciousness, camping facilities (toilet/shower block is 5 star), cleanliness & friendly staff, Hawkshead Hall is right up there with the very best.

We’ve stayed twice, and without a doubt will be back again soon. Superb well run campsite, which can’t be recommended highly enough. Recycling & refuse cleaned up & disposed of daily.

Centrally situated in terms of fell walking and only a 10 minute off-road walk into Hawkshead.

Only possible downside, obviously nothing to do with the site, is the access road (B5285) which is very tight in terms of large motorhomes & caravans - although definitely achievable with care. Don’t let the access road put you off !.

 It is impossible not to award Hawkshead Hall top marks. - one of the best sites that I have stayed on in the UK.

To start with, very sensible, effective, appropriate and proportionate Covid measures are being taken (unlike some other ‘way over the top’ sites - which I think is partly down to laziness). ‘Remote’ reception was very friendly and efficient.

The site is immaculately kept. The facilities block is something else - a spacious, modern, clean, beautifully tiled facility - a pleasure to use. And (unlike many other sites), full recycling facilities are available at the rubbish disposal point.

Last but not least - the site is nestled in an absolutely beautiful location - with easy access to the surrounding fells, and only a 10 minute walk from the village of Hawkshead, via an off-road path.

If Carlsberg did caravan / motorhome / camping sites - this would be it !
