We fancied a last minute get away and decided to try this site which is only about an hour and a half from home. When we arrived, the check in procedure was quick and easy, despite a number of outfits arriving at the same time. We were given a map of the site and told to pick our own pitch. This is where the problems began. We circled the whole site and could not find a single reasonably flat pitch. Every pitch seemed to be on a side to side slope, some of them excessively sloping. The site is made up of a number of smaller cul de sac type areas with 6-12ish pitches in each area and if you turn into one of these and change your mind, the only way out is to reverse. This is not easy as the site has many steep hills and narrow roads with steep drop offs on one side. After driving round a few times we eventually settled on a pitch which appeared to be the flattest available but even so, we still had to put the caravan on the second level of our levelling ramp. This made the setting up process very stressful as we had to adjust the van several times in order to get the van level and the Alko wheel lock on.

The site has 2 toilet blocks which are both fine, kept clean and nice and warm.

There are lots of nice walks directly from the site. We did one on each of the days we were there, one along the river Kent and one through the woods to Sizergh castle which is a National Trust property. There is also a nice farm shop with cafe a short drive from the site or about a 30 minute walk. The Strickland Arms pub is also within walking distance. We didn’t eat there but just popped in for a drink but the atmosphere was nice and the food looked good.

The wardens were very helpful and when we had a problem with the EHU bollard, they came and sorted it out for us very quickly, even before we managed to walk back to the van from reception! Overall, we liked the location of this site and the fact that there were lots of good walks nearby but I would think twice about going again due to the stress of setting up on very sloping pitches.

It’s been a couple of years since we visited this site and we forgot how busy it can get - despite being told on arrival by the warden that there were several pitches still available we drove around 3 times and couldn’t see a single pitch free - not helped by the small cul-de-sacs where it is not obvious which pitch is which and the fact that cars were parked on pitches that they were not occupying. We did eventually find somewhere to pitch up.

The whole site is pretty much under trees so if the sun is out, you don’t see much of it. The dog walk is through the woods and is adequate - As we have 3 dogs we now find it easier with a large enclosed field where they can run off lead and we still have visibility of them all, just a personal preference.

Did notice quite a few people with camp fires which, given the dry weather and moorland fires we have been experiencing, plus the fact this is a “caravan club” site, I was very surprised at.

This site is great for a stop off point due to its close proximity to the M6 but that’s probably it. Doubt we’ll be rushing back.

Stayed here for a week mid September. Lovely peaceful site with level gravel pitches. TV booster cable required. Excellent staff on the reception which also has a chiller cabinet with milk and other essentials. Fresh bread available daily as well as newspapers to order. Fish & chip van comes on Fridays. Two toilet/shower/washing up blocks on site were always spotless. Acess to site is narrow with passing places which is fine as long as the departing outfits leave on time, which did not happen in our case. Fortunately we had just turned into the lane, but had vehicles behind who also had to back up. Bus to Kendal about a mile walk through the lane to the main road roundabout. Bus takes under ten minutes.

We have just spent 3 fantastic days here and what a fabulous location. The site is very clean- showers are very clean and warm. We had lovely weather walked into Kendal ( which took about 2hrs but couldn't manage the walk back so called a pet friendly taxi who took us back. The driver was brilliant.

We walked up to the Strickland arms on 2 nights ( only 15mins walk) the food is fabulous as is the locals- We were made very welcome.

We have just had 3 very enjoyable nights on this site. The site is laid out into small bays which have around 4 or 5 caravans in, so there was plenty of privacy. The ground was very hard for awning pegs and I cannot help but think I should have had a fracking licence when I was hammering them in. The toilet block was adequate and was clean. Some of the roads on the site were steep for short stretches so if anyone has any mobility issues it may take some planning. It was utterly peaceful however, and so quite at night - thoroughly relaxing. It was very easy to find from the M6 but the access road is a bit tight. We used the site as a base for cycling to Hawkshead on one day and down to Arnside on another day. The country lanes are perfect for cycling with very little traffic. The Strickland Arms (10 minute walk away) was a lovely pub for a well earned pint and to sit and relax in the beer garden.

Always find it difficult to give an honest review with just a one night stay, as we were on our way back to South Wales from Scotland.

On arrival, staff were very welcoming and explained the layout of the site which can be slightly confusing.

We were soon hooked up in a clearing along with I believe, four other units.

Water points, grey water and chemical disposal were all conveniently near.

The toilet and shower block we used were spotless.

Perhaps October is not the best month to visit this site, we had heavy rain all night and with the overhanging trees it sounded like we were being hit by lego blocks all night.

Having said that, I can imagine it being glorious in the right weather.

Hard to criticise the site on a one off nights stay with bad weather.

Would we return, probably in finer months.

This is our third visit to this site (strangely always in September).

It is a lovely site which is easily accessible via the M6 and is nicely situated for visits to Barrow in Furness, Morecambe and the Lakes. (We spent our time going to all 3 due to Family connections)

The site has nice pitches that are a little different to the usual caravan club style, it has areas where you find 4/5 caravans. It is based in an old gun powder works and you can still see some of the crumbing ruins and the water channels to assist the works. It has a lovely dog walk and you can go further afield easily - and there are walks along the river Kent.

Our 2 springer spaniels had a great time and everyone we met with dogs commented on what an excellent location it is for them.

When we were booking in the wardens were delightful and were telling us that they were fully booked over the weekend.

There are 2 toilet blocks both cleaned and maintained well.

We will continue to use this site (especially for visiting the family), we are already thinking about September next year :)

Stayed five nights early July midweek. No children around our area of the site. Very shaded pitches however we did encounter quite a few insect! Wildlife in abundance. Single track access road but did not meet any other vehicles when we arrived or departed. Walked into Kendal and walked to the Strickland Arms pub a few times for evening meal, which I can recommend. Needed levelling blocks for our motorhome.

Amenity block with lots of clean showers and hot water was fine and well maintained but a bit dated. Lovely friendly staff thanks for hints and advice.

Our first caravan trip after a 20 year break and we were a bit nervous! But after surviving the towing we arrived at this beautiful site. From the moment we arrived the wardens could not have been more helpful, taking time out to help us set up correctly and just helping us along the way all weekend.

The site is beautiful and the pitch we had was separated from others by mature trees. The facilities are immaculate and the surrounding area perfect for exploring.

It was a great return to caravanning and this is the site by which we will judge all others.

Enjoyed our short stay here in mid October 2015. Staff were pleasant & helpful. At the time of our visit the approach single track road had many potholes. Site facilities blocks clean, warm & plenty of hot water. This is a hillside woodland site with a good tarmac road through it with clusters of pitches of it. Did feel a bit dismal at this time of year. We visited Sizeburgh Castle (Nat Trust)& RSPB @ Leighton Moss. Did not look for playground so cannot comment. Shopped at Morrisons in Kendal before arriving at site as it is a good distance from Kendal & anywhere else really. Probably an ideal site for dog walkers/walkers in general. A good 30min walk to bus stop we were told. Did not use the 'local' pub as some negative comments in visitors book and it was, in parts, a potholed road to walk along in the dark to get to it.
