 Great site, extremely helpful staff.

The facilities are all well kept and great.

The view is great.

There is a pub that does good food within a 5 minute walk.

 A cracking campsite, perfectly located just off the A66 in the village of Braithwaite. Braithwaite hosts two cracking pubs both within a few minutes walk from the site. You can walk in to Keswick within 30 minutes, the quick way or far better is to walk over the fields towards Portinscale, this is 20 minutes longer but far quieter.

The site itself is pan flat, all the pitches we've been on have been hard-standing but there is a flat field for camping on.

The toilet blocks are what all campsites should have. Plenty of cubicles and showers, underfloor heating and plenty of room inside. The reception staff are great, very friendly and polite. I have no complaints about this site at all.

 We stayed two nights on spec. For the Tour of Great Britain Whinlatter events. Hardstanding and hook-ups were booked up, not a problem as we stayed on grass (flat, no hedges/trees) and have solar. Management were very accommodating; well-stocked shop; toilet/shower/washing up facilities amongst the best we've ever had in the UK. Both local pubs had good beer and food. Direct access from campsite to footpath network along river bank, convenient for Grisedale Pike/ Whinlatter Forest visitor centre footpaths and mountain bike trails.

 Firstly a fantastic site for facilities and location to local walks and Keswick. The staff are brilliant and directions to pubs, walks and Keswick were spot on.

The toilet facilities are up with the best and spotless.

We booked a motor home without awning pitch and they are on the small side. I have made enquiries with the site since and if we call and ask for a bigger pitch with an awning they would accommodate this. If you were staying for a few days this might be a good idea but for our two day stay the smaller pitch caused us no worries.

The local pub (2nd nearest to the site) is very dog friendly.

Walks great, site great and people great. We will look forward to going back when our journey takes us this way

 We stayed overnight on our journey home to Scotland. I was a bit wary as we always book a certain campsite, however on this occasion I'm pleased to say that our usual site was fully booked, and we were fortunate to get an electric hook up at Scotgate, at short notice.

And ---- A human person actually answered our last minute telephone call WOW! So sick of calling sites and getting a recorded message at the other end, telling you to leave contact details but never getting a call back to advise whether they have vacancies. Well done Sir!

What a fab site! Toilets immaculate. Great on-site shop. On-site cafe serving good value, freshly prepared meals.

It was busy, tents a bit 'tightly packed', but all lights out at an appropriate time and a 'real campsite atmosphere.

There are two local pubs within a short distance that also serve food.

A river runs along the site, and the kids and our dogs were having great fun splashing around.

Waking up to a spectacular view, and the sun was shining, we didn't want to leave.

We can't wait to return, but shhh! don't tell everyone!

 Not much of a reception on arrival, only' your on pitch 25 over there' Nevertheless had a nice hard-standing pitch near the stream and for such a large site was very quiet at night. Thought the shower/toilet block a bit dated but functional. Nice walk adjacent the stream to Braithwaite village itself with three pubs in it and a shop. There is also a well stocked shop on-site which even sells booze. Bus stop near site entrance which is convenient for Keswick.

 What a lovely friendly site. On driving up the M6 heaving snow hit and we had to stay at a service station overnight and allow the bad weather to pass. The campsite owner was so helpful with us arriving a day late and remained helpful and friendly all week. The site is in a beautiful position with walks onto the hills straight from the site. We were given a pitch close to the toilet block which was always clean and warm - very important in March. I will be back

 We have used this site for caravanning for many years now, and we never fail to enjoy this site, it has magnificent views/ walks, with bus stops just outside the camp. In the village, there are friendly pubs and shop that sell tasty homemade pasties/pies etc. Toilets and facilities are brill! and cope well even when the camp is ultra busy.

Toilet/ shower block always nice and warm with underfloor heating.

Staff we have always found to be friendly and very helpful.

With a couple of nice walks from camp to keswick town we would recommend this site, no problem!

 Fantastic site, excellent location. The showers/toilets are always spotless even at height of season.

All pitches are flat and most fully serviced with water/drainage and tv point. Free wi-fi which works all over the site.

Only approx 40min walk into Keswick and plenty of walks from the site.

Fully recommended.
