Date of Visit: August 2021 Unit:  Tent

Reviewer: Wetwellies 13 reviews from this member

 We have been coming here for years.

Great play areas and access to the lake for kids, shop sells nets and practically anything else you might have forgot, including bags of ice for cool boxes.

It was very busy when we went and there was always loo roll but the facilities could have done with an extra clean during the day (but staff all looked super busy and no doubt were short staffed due to covid)

Takeaway on site OK but not fantastic quality. A very busy site, depends what you are looking for, if you like to pitch your tent on your own chosen pitch this place is good (on overflow field), but with that comes more groups together and its noisier at night. Site staff did come around and deal with a rowdy shouty woman at 2 in the morning.

If you want to stay a few more hours by the lake after you have put tent away you have to spend five pounds on lakeside parking which is a bit unfair really when you are paying that bit more for the nights you do stay in relation to other sites locally, they could include this. Kids also loved the streams by lake and through site.

I would say this is a good site for a few nights in a tent, but would prefer somewhere a bit quieter and less busy with a young family for a week or more. However teens love it here and you feel safe enough to give them some freedom, plenty of space to roam on site.

 Fabulous views, across the lake, with a lovely walk along their own private path into Pooley Bridge.

Although we didn't have children, the kids all seemed to have a great time.

Campsite very clean, quiet at night time, which is how we like it.

Great value for money.

We'll definitely return here.

 Absolutely Superb in every aspect although didn't use he clubhouse but looked spectacular.

Staff were very friendly and helpful, the park was beautiful with superb amenities and the area was stunning with lots to do. Will definitely be visiting again. 5 star +

Only downside is no mobile or internet signal on site but for me was a massive bonus.

 We stayed in The Woodside Cottages, it was beautiful. The views from the back of the house of The Fells were amazing.

Lovely seeing the ponies, sheep and red squirrels every morning. Also the views of Ulswater Lake from the front of the house were lovely too.

We were told the house had been totally renovated and it had been! Fantastic open plan layout, so spacious, also the decor and furnishings were very hi spec. The very large showers and bath were just what we needed after a day's rambling.

The Take Away on site was brilliant. Very good value for money and food always piping hot.

We also booked a table in the restaurant on our last night, which again the food was amazing. The Steak Pie was the best ever! Compliments to The Chef. The restaurant was also Dog and Child Friendly. We were made to feel very safe in these Covid-19 pandemic times.

The on site shop was ok, but we did feel it lacked in stock some days.

You can walk to Pooley Bridge, good 15/20 mins but well worth it. Lots of quaint shops, country pubs and places to eat.

We would love to return in the summer, with the light nights to take advantage of the seating area outside the patio doors from the lounge and enjoy the sunsets.

Didn't quite get this in October, and it rained every day!

Thanks for a lovely stay

 I cannot fault this site. Everything you need is at hand. A fully stocked shop, takeaway and restaurant.

The site is immaculate, showers and toilets are spotless.

Pooley Bridge is a pleasant 10 minute stroll away.

Well done to all staff who work there.

 Fantastic week away at Park Foot. The site is very well organised, play parks well equipped and suitable for all ages, kids loved it!

Shower/toilet facilities Very clean and well monitored.

The staff in the office and all around the camp site were extremely helpful, friendly and professional, listening to our needs and taking their time to support us as a family.

A short walk into the village and to the lake where you can use your own water equipment, go fishing or just throw stones into the water.

I have been coming to this campsite since I myself was 7 years old, 20 years on I am now bringing my family and will continue to do so. We just LOVE IT!

 Huge campsite on the shores of Ullswater.

There are several areas, but we used Aikbeck which is closest to the lake and Pooley bridge.

Club house and entertainment provided on site.

Well stocked shopping.

Facilities modern and well maintained.

 A site with lovely views of Ullswater, spoilt by its massive size, overcrowding, tiny packed in pitches & badly run by teenagers.

So if you’re loud, brash with a shed load of kids & couldn’t give a monkeys you’ll love it.

 My partner & I were lucky to spend 4 fantastic nights on this campsite. The weather was sensational making the views even more glorious. This is a large campsite divided by the road.

We were pitched at the lower end with fab views of the Lake. We spent our days walking in the area, using the ferry & bus. I thought the shower facility was ok, free & warm, with a small area to sit or place your clothes.

The 15min walk into Pooley Bridge is fine, there are 3 pubs, but due to the incredible no of people partaking of liquid & food refreshment we did not eat at any of them.

It was obvious the glorious weather had drawn many people to the area. We returned to the site on Friday after walking in Patterdale only to find that all camping fields were filling up with tents, in fact I thought it resembled a refugee camp.

There didn't seem to be any form of warden control & people were virtually doing just as they liked. The same old story that some thoughtless so & so's thought it was ok not to clear up after their dogs (& there were many dogs, which I don't have a problem with as I have 3).

Signs saying dogs to be kept on leads were ignored (mind you some children needed keeping on a lead). It did seem at times that all & sundry had access to the private footpath down to the lake.

Had it not been for the good weather I would have been very disappointed.

It was not a site for me & it is highly unlikely that we would visit again, which is a shame because it is in a great location
