 Liked: shower and toilet facilities were clean and close to pitches. Drinking water taps were plentiful and close to pitches. Pitches were well maintained. Great proximity for Scafell Pike / Great Gable etc. No phone signal at all but free WiFi at the shop.

Areas for improvement: check in deadline being 8pm is quite early, especially on days where people will be travelling after work and travel delays aren’t uncommon. We called to say we were running 30 mins late and got told if we weren’t there by 9pm there was a chance we wouldn’t be allowed on the site - not ideal after a 4 hour drive!

Turns out the owners to check you in actually live on site so felt a bit draconian to threaten we may not be allowed on (we got checked in fine!). But also a sign on the shop door to point to the house would be helpful as there was no one around and no directions given on the phone of where to go even though we had called ahead so we were wandering round trying to find someone for about 20 mins on arrival.

Overall good location for that area of walking, beware you are in the middle of nowhere though so no phone signal at all!

 This was our first visit and I honestly cant believe we’ve not visited before.

The facility’s are superb and very clean and the area is perfect for ticking off those Wainwrights and scaling Scafell.

The owner couldn’t do enough for us, he made us feel so welcome, he even offered to lend us a hand putting up our tent, certainly will not be our last at Church stile

The views are amazing, you certainly won’t be disappointed at this campsite. Brilliant.

1. Great location - scenery from the site is glorious and only a 10 minute drive to Wast Water and about 20 minutes to the car parks at Wasdale Head for climbing the fells around Wasdale (Great Gable, Scafell Pike).

2. Toilets and Showers are good / clean and were within 1-2 minutes walk from the pitch, although if you’re pitched in the non EHU fields its a bit further. Plenty of hot water.

3. Pitch was of good size and flat, with EHU. Not too cramped.

4. Water point near to the tent

5. Peaceful and quiet with dark skies.

Minor Issues:

1. No phone signal (with o2 network) for most of the area. Rarely get an E let alone a 3G. Forget 4G. Also there’s no WiFi on the site (except for at the cafe). Makes it a bit awkward to check weather on the go, which is important for walkers

2. Dishwashing point is at the toilet block, which is a bit of a trek when you’re carrying lots of items. Our pitch was relatively close, but this could be annoying for those pitched further away.

3. If you want to explore more of the Lakes than just Wasdale then you really should reconsider camping here. Places like Keswick, Buttermere, Coniston take about an hour and a half to get to.

4. Cafe overpriced. A roll with bacon, sausage and egg is more than £5. Coffee wasn’t great either (weak).

 Stayed just one night to give my 8 year old grandson his first experience of camping! The site in situated in the heart of the lakes with stunning views all around.

There are several fields to choose from, clean toilets and a laundry. My gransdson felt very grown up going to 'The Strand' pub just around the corner for tea.

We were greeted on arrival at the reception/site shop by a friendly young lady who got us checked in and given a map and directions to find a pitch.

So, we had a successful outing and I'm glad to say Louis enjoyed the trip and is looking forward to the next one. Would recommend.

 We typically prefer smaller/quiet sites and usually travel out of peak season, so this was one of the biggest, and by far the busiest sites we've stayed at. This obviously made it pretty noisy (from our point of view) - from groups of kids playing to people chatting (not very loudly but nearby, because it was so busy), both late into the night and early the next morning.

There aren't a lot of toilets/showers for so many people but we didn't have to queue at all. The facilities were modern and clean, repeatedly checked throughout the day/evening.

There is a small section of woodland on the site for exercising dogs.

The reception/shop sells fresh bread & local ice cream, which was a treat. It was open until well into the evening too. All the staff we met were friendly.

The village pubs are less than a minute's walk from the site entrance - good food & drink selection.

Obviously excellent walking opportunities nearby and we enjoyed swimming in Wastwater too.

We'll probably return at some point - but would stick to quieter times to avoid the crowds.

 I have used this campsite several times over the past few years. I love the location in the fabulous Wasdale Valley.

England's deepest lake is 20 minute walk away. The campsite is very clean and tidy.

The pitches are very generous. Fire pits are available to rent (we take our own).

The campsite shop is amazing, their breakfast rolls especially.

This is a beautiful, quite site in the most impressive valley in the Lake District.
