We moved up to this site after spending a week touring the southern lakes. A great little site. Very helpful wardens, a small shop, clean shower blocks and other facilities like washing up are, waste disposal, information hut, and laundry. upon arrival we were shown which pitches were available and left to choose where we wanted to go. Great views from the pitches. Some previous reviews have mentioned that the activity centre next door was noisy. I did hear some clay pidgin shooting one morning but it didn't bother us, and after all we were there to see the Lake District not listen out for noisy neighbours. Good size pitches. Very clean and tidy, a credit to the wardens. Will visit again.

Small family owned site - helpful friendly staff always happy to help! Pitches spacious and well cared for. Excellent position for touring the Lake District and Fell Walking just at the base of Blencathra. The site has many ideas for places to visit also maps for local walks which start from the site. Plenty of family friendly country inns all serving lots of local produce on their menus. Couldn't be any better.
