Very quiet and scenic, just how we like our sites. Appleby lovely to visit and great walking from the site.

One toilet and shower in what looks like a shed but actually very clean, spacious and warm inside.

Gladly stay over again and best of all, the cheapest site I've stayed at so value for money it is up there at the top.

We called up looking for 1 night and the lovely lady owner told us to come over as had a space.

The CL is down a lane which is a no-through road, very quiet and peaceful. The 5 pitches are on grass but well mowed and despite a fair bit of rain not at all muddy. Each pitch is a good size with ehu, there is a toilet and shower towards the back of the site. No wifi as you are a little out in the sticks.

The views over the vale are stunning, hardly a car passed and it was so quiet we could have been a million miles from civilisation and yet Appleby is just a 10 minute drive.

For £12 a night including the electric it is a real bargain, the owners are wonderful and very friendly and approachable. For us a near perfect little CL we would recommend.

We loved our stay here. We came to do some nearby geocaching around Eden Valley, some of which we could walk to without using the car. The views were wonderful - within a few minutes of arriving I saw a sparrow hawk and during our stay we were regularly treated to the sight of geese flying to and from the fields down by the little fishing pool. We watched buzzards circling and calling over the fields in front of the van. One morning I saw a stoat or weasel running across the lane. I don't think I've ever been to such a quiet place. And the stars! There's no light pollution so when the stars were visible they were really clear and bright.

I chose this one because of the loo and shower - we do have a loo but our bathroom is a tiny one so I like to use a bigger shower. The little cabin was very clean and spider free (!) and the shower was very welcome after a day's walking in the hot sunshine.

Appleby is lovely to walk round - especially the church of St Lawrence, and has lots of little shops including a Spar shop.

Finally I can't praise the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners enough: they leant us a battery charger because we had problems with our electrics, a chair when our daughter arrived for our last night and we only had 3 chairs with us, but most of all for the help and support they gave us when our car died literally just as we had pulled out of the entrance onto the lane to go home. They let me use their landline to call the breakdown service as neither of our phones could get a signal, and then let my kids and I sit in the empty static to watch tv while we waited anxiously for the breakdown truck to arrive. Definitely worth the 5 stars for the welcome. We will be back!
