 I donít normally return to the same campsite, but washing up one evening I spoke to a lady who had been coming here for the last 20 years. I might do the same for the next 20 !

Stunning location; excellent shower/wash up facilities. And need I say more but a fabulous idea of an honesty box to purchase home made cake. Letís just say the Lemmon drizzle helped the climb up Scarfell Pike.

 Very laid back and basic campsite with amazing views.

Clean toilet block and facilities with a breakfast van on site.

The site was busy during our visit but it never felt that way as everyone seemed to be like minded and all appreciative of the surroundings

 Basic campsite with good robust facilities at the farm, a short walk from the riverside meadows. Can be (was) windy.

Nice shelter for backpackers to cook in.

Village has pub and shop about 10 mins walk away.

My third visit - superb location for walking and climbing, ; narrow access road and bridge.

Breakfast butty van and pizzas at summer weekends.

 Picked this site as it was on my walking route. When I arrived, I was greeted in a courteous fashion - the owner was doing a daily clean of the showers, which meant they were spotless.

There were no additional charges for showers, which was great, and they were hot with plenty of changing room. Homemade cakes were on sale via an honesty box system.

The facilities were basic for a campsite - potable water, toilet, shower, bins, washing up point - which is really all you need.

I think this place is a hidden gem, right at the heart of a number of great walks.

Reviewer: Macburns36 1 review from this member

 Loved this "proper" campsite

Wide range of campers, some overnight backpacking/cycling some with larger sets ups. Bbq's gazebos, flags bunting staying fir a week a more, & D of E/expedition groups.

Fantastic location, huge choice of pitches over 4/5 fields, loads of space to choose from. Good job as no advance bookings. Clean hot showers, good washiing up facilities, also a covered area for cooking if weather is really bad. Owner bakes cakes with honesty box for payment.

Quite noisy with wildlife & livestock as working farm. Also first time I have ever seen a peacock whilst camping lol! Dog friendly. All others campers very friendly.

Absolutely loved it, can't wait to go back.

 Lovely campsite enjoyed how quiet it was considering there with kids and dogs.

Could really do with another set of toilets facilities in the middle as it's a far walk to top of campsite if staying lower down

 Fantastic site, found a good level pitch, grass is kept short so dries out quickly.

Very peaceful and the baying of the belted Galloways was music in the beautiful Langdale valley.

The facilities are sturdy and basic but kept very clean. You cannot teach some people to clean up after themselves (if you know what I mean) on camp facilities.

Location is excellent if you are walking or just relaxing.

 Stunning views - mountains and lakes

Great area - stones throw away from lake you can swim and play in

Adequate toilet/shower facilities - very basic and equipped well for Covid-19 (hand sanitiser outside)

Long walk up to facilities from bottom camping area - not a major issue if you donít mind walking

Great value for money - £10 per adult per night and £5 per child per night

Lots of space for tents. Donít worry about turning up there should be plenty of room. If in doubt email and they get back in touch straight away (although customer service skills once there could improve - maybe he was having a bad day)

Would visit again :)

Reviewer: Campanula 7 reviews from this member

 This is a decent basic campsite - all the facilities you need (toilets, showers, washing up sinks - I think you could ask for ice block freezing at the farmhouse but we didn't need this). It is a big site and all the facilities are by the farmhouse - as there are some none camping fields between the upper and lower camping fields this means you will be a long way from the toilets in some areas.

It was very busy at the weekend of our stay - we were glad we arrived on the Thursday when it was a bit quieter. There did seem to be quite a lot of groups around so very noisy during the day, and I'm not convinced that all the fires were enclosed (one quite near us was in a fire basket which had quite a sizable fire underneath on the ground), but it did quieten down for the night.

Then the only thing disturbing us was the bird life :) If you come at this time of year and hear some really weird noises in the night, they are the display 'drumming' or 'bleating' sounds of Common Snipe: the males make the noise with special tail feathers! Very bizarre noise - we couldn't think what could be making it!

As others have mentioned, the sinks are placed really high in the main toilet blocks - I think someone 6'6" must have put them in! There's a small sink round the corner, and the smaller toilet block had a single sink at a more normal height, so my younger son used this one. The showers only have a few hooks and no internal divider, so plan accordingly, and there was no mop so the shower floors got very messy at the weekend.

Overall, it's not my favourite campsite ever, but it's decent, good value for money and in a superb setting - and the snipe were a bonus I've never encountered before!
