The campsite is very quiet surrounded by fields, it is kept very tidy. There is only two showers, two toilets in the ladies, and according to husband one toilet and one urinal in the men's these were kept very clean. If you are going to be late arriving make sure you have essentials as it is eight miles to Morrisons or Asda there are no village shops nearby. The information pack was ok for info about the Lake District but didn't have any general info about pubs, takeaways, caravan accessory shops(which we needed) supermarkets. I got the feeling that the site is more suitable for stopover or short stays the pitches are very small not suitable for full awnings you feel very hemmed in. We had booked for ten days but came home early this was partly due to me not being very well and partly due to the pitches. Although the wardens were pleasant when I spoke about the pitches the man agreed it did get tight when it was busy. Would I go back, maybe but only for a weekend.

Stopped here for an overnight break on the way to Scotland, mainly because the Camping Club site wouldn't take a one night booking. How glad we were! The Ashes is a little gem of a site!

The site is about a mile down a narrow lane not too far from the M6 and overlooks beautiful lakeland countryside. Were met at the site entrance by the resident warden and assisted to our pitch. Very peaceful.

Although the amenity block is small it seemed to cope with the demands on it from a full quota of caravans. At 23 for one night it seemed quite reasonable. It is Adults only - brilliant!

There is a pub that serves meals about 2 miles away at Oxenholme, although car parking was an issue when we went.

We must go back to The Ashes next year!

Please note this site has reopened under new ownership for 2018 following a brief closure during 2017 whilst for sale. The site is once more taking bookings for the 2018 season onwards

Lovely, clean and very quiet (except for the sound of cows and sheep)

Toilets and separate shower block both very clean - we really enjoyed a nice and relaxing break and would definitely return when we next feel the need to holiday up in Kendal.

Mixed feelings about this site, there's excellent points and not so good points.

The Good Points

Lovely, friendly and helpful welcome

Stunning views of the surrounding hills & livestock

Friendly & very helpful fellow caravanners

Handy for Kendal for supplies

Concrete levellers on the pitches, as site is sloping

Clean loos, didn't use showers (used van)

Site, pretty, very well manicured & maintained

Handy green folder with lots of information in, which proved useful

Beautiful horse just over the wall to watch

The Bad Points

Pitches very small and very on top of each other, giving a hemmed in feeling

No noise policy until after 9am a bit over the top, 9am is quite late for campers, we needed water as we had sprung a leak late the night before & having been up since 6am, felt a long time to wait to get water for a brew, very silly rule.

Pitches very tight to get in and out of without going on the grass, not just us, saw others struggle too

Dog walk area, very small, with no dog poop bin, dog mess was to be bagged and then walked up the hill to the main rubbish area and thrown into heavy lidded biffa style bins, tricky while your'e trying to hold onto a dog and the bins are quite high. (also tricky to do quietly)

Cows mooing although nice for some, one morning the noise was very loud indeed, also lots of barking dogs noise late night and early morning from local farm, which was a bit annoying considering the no noise until after 9am policy

No mobile phone or 3G on 02 (expected issue) bought their wifi which constantly logged you out of your'e devise

TV signal for us was extremely poor, we ended up buying an ariel from asda.

A bit on the expensive side for the amount of facilities, but its the lake district, so I guess you're paying for that alone

Surrounding area is beautiful a real getaway, bridle paths to walk dogs along, however are quite overgrown and a bit rocky and trecherouse, so be mindful of that. The lane is quiet enough to walk along though, just the odd car and tractor.

Access roads to site are very narrow, but traffic very little coming the opposite way, so didn't pose too much of a problem.

Would we stay again? Probably, despite the issues, I would however avoid pitch 11 which is sited right next to chemical toilet disposal point and the water tap. Would also wait to see if the no noise policy before 9am was dropped.

This is a well maintained site. Slopes down from the toilets near the top to the bottom pitches, so an uphill walk to the toilets/showers. Pitches have concrete pads/slabs to locate wheels on to help with levelling. Need transport as quite out of the way. Sheep in one field and cows in the other, we could also watch some sheepdog training, which was interesting. TV reception not too great. Had to pay for wifi card which is a bit much given the price per night. Toilets, showers and pot wash were all immaculate. However, only 2 showers for the whole site which was inconvenient when it was almost full. Also only 2 toilets in Gents' and Ladies' and no clothes washing facilities.
