Good site with friendly helpful wardens. New excellent facilities and pitches. New means there were some teething problems with rainwater/waste water on a couple of pitches when we had extremely heavy rainfall, although these didn't affect our pitch. The wardens were working hard to keep the site in tip-top condition.

Very peaceful with good views from the upper area. Good local walks and although there's no specific off-lead area the dogs there is a track where trusted dogs can be allowed some freedom (side areas with muddy ditches). We would be happy to recommend ths site.

Great location, friendly staff, ample size pitches, great showerblock, very busy as can be expected for a Bank Holiday weekend, our weekend totally spoilt by inconsiderate dog owners letting their dogs bark and yap on at all hours, the woman on the next pitch to us thinking it was great to take pictures of her dog while it was wagging its tail and barking its head off, we've visited this site many times over the years and found it to be very peaceful and relaxing! How this Club has changed, those days are gone, not slating dog owners because I would say half of them on the site were very considerate as for the warden, when I feedback to her, her response was 'we get a lot of dogs on here' not even an apology, I've cancelled our membership, our relationship with this overpriced Club ------OVER

Troutbeck is a handy CMC campsite if you wish to explore the Lake District or overnight on the way to Scotland (it is fifteen minutes off the M6 at Penrith). The central amenities block is clean and modern, and there are water points handy for most parts of the site. Television reception can be a bit hit-and-miss (although booster sockets are present on ehu blocks if you have an extension cable).

A good nearby walk is the circuit of Gowbarrow Hill and Aira Force, which takes about three hours to complete, but affords excellent views of Ullswater and the waterfalls that feed it. Both Keswick and Penrith boast shops, pubs and restaurants.

Enjoyed our week with the plus of some very warm weather. This site is set in beautiful surroundings and its layout means you don't feel the site is as big as it is. We were lucky enough to get a pitch by the stream and the caravan could be parked nose in to enable the view to be enjoyed.

Lovely and peaceful with the occasional noise from the neighbouring outdoor centre - quads, clay pigeon shooting, but doesn't go on all day. The site has a couple of play areas although only one was in use when we were there, along with a games room. Useful for those with children when the weather isn't so great.

Facilities were spotless and the site is well maintained. Good dog walk from the site where you can let the dogs off and another short one on site where they need to be on leads.

Sampled the Fish & Chip van on the Tuesday night (comes twice a week). Not a huge menu, but very tasty. Penrith has Morrisons and Sainsburys for your main shopping, plus fuel.

Overall a lovely site with the benefits of being close to some great towns and the amazing scenery of the north lakes. We will return.

We stopped off here for 3 nights after a 7 night stay at a privately owned site in Scotland which we paid very little pppn with the same facilities. CC prices are no longer good value compared to some private sites but it was a convenient stop over to extend our holiday just a few more days. On arrival, wardens were welcoming but I did feel overloaded by the directions around the site given to me without the lady drawing breathe and even the site map was compact and not easy to read. We pitched on a corner with the most picturesque view of Blencathra and of the activity centre next door to the site. Dog walks from site lacking. We did find the forestry walks but non were circular so it was there and back. The only other walks would take us onto a busy road. Fish and chip van on site twice a week. We sampled on Tuesday night and found them to be very tasty. Typical CC site moan also about relentless grass cutting. They come with a strimmer for the very edges, then a walk along mower for the edges and then a big ride on mower for the larger area cuts. As all pitches are surrounded by grass we had to endure nearly a full afternoon of mowing noise! We won't visit again but can see this site being a good base for tourists to drive from and enjoy the Northern Lake District.

Blessed by the unusual Easter weather (sunshine), we stayed on a serviced pitch and were delighted by tranquil surroundings (even though the site was almost full). Ideally situated for the northern Lakes without the large crowds normally associated Everywhere was kept tidy and the toilets were very clean. The dog walk area is fantastic, just make sure your pooch will come back when called as there is access to the beck! Our only gripe is no wifi, and be aware that O2 has no mobile signal.
