 Turned up at troutbeck site first so make sure you put the right one in the sat nav which and donít trust the other half with it.

Lovely site on arrival, choose your own pitch, choose carefully as there is quad bikes frequently on the farm next door, it didnít bother us too much though.

Canít say much in the way of walks as our old dog had had enough the day before, but we enjoyed relaxing in the sun and listening to the birds.

 Great welcome by wardens to this typical C&MC site.

The toilets were open good for them as C&c site at Keswick were shut and no reduction in fees. The facilities are very good and there is a small games room which of course was shut for covid.

The views from the site are amazing but best from the non serviced pitches. Walks straight from the site into the forest and onto the hills behind. This is big wild country.

Disappointingly the two local hostelries both within walking distance at Troutbeck and Dockray were all shut even though they could have served outside. Mountain bike enthousiasts try the Old Coach road part of the C2C which passes a couple of miles away from the site.

Amazing views and great off road track where we met a jeep safari.

 A winter weekend break with our staff at Troutbeck Head.

Fantastic site recently renovated. Spacious pitches, modern amenities block and very helpful wardens.

Forest walks are minutes away and are great for the dog. A must visit.

 Very well maintained, tidy & peaceful site. Lovely views of Blencathra (Saddleback). Of particular note are the excellent, newly-refitted (2018 Season) modern showers and toilet blocks - HOWEVER it does have a significant issue with mosquitoes, horseflies and (especially) tiny black biting midges (the type that are tiny enough, it seems, to pass through flyscreens. Arrrgh).

The answer, as we found, after being badly bitten for the first few nights - was to acquire a 'Jungle Formula' brand plug-in electric vaporizer (£8 on Amazon - the type that has a 2-pin Euro style fitment, so also grab a UK plug adaptor for another £2 odd) - and to leave it gently fuming away in the van (completely odourless) - the liquid reservoir claims to last for 45 days. (Happily) the first morning, after deployment - there were around 50 of the wee buggers in various stages of rigor mortis on the windowsill.

Also be aware that the on-site grocery shop is (for some reason) cash only. Equidistant for both Keswick and Penrith - at an easy 15 mins drive to each, the latter with several large Supermarkets (Sainsburys, Morrisons, Aldi, etc. )

 Nice site but make sure you take insect repellent with you as there over run with miggies. Besides that the site itself is ok.

Usual good clean standards but a bit pricey for whatís on it

 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.

Reviewer: Fimmy joster 4 reviews from this member

 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.
