The ideal site to stay !

Its been a while since we have been to Appleby and so glad we decided to stay at Crofts End very last minute when Wales went into lockdown as Crofts End will be a return destination. Easy to find once we turned left at the junction over the bridge instead of right :-) Andrew was on hand to guide us to our spot and even advised on which way to site and get the best of the views. Electric hook up and water close by and also the grey water drain. Not too big of a site which made it even better. A decent walk into town to stroll around and take it all in again after last being there. Fresh duck eggs on the site entrance to buy, which we did and had for breakfast the next day. Spoke to the owners daughter in law who was really friendly and welcoming and even bumped into her in town as we were going around the outdoor market. Overall a great experience for just our second time away.

Delightful friendly, well run, fully serviced CL. We will return.

CROFT ENDS, APPLEBY CL234 29-23 July 2020 Lovely CL. Well run and friendly. 30 minutes walk into delightful market town of Appleby, and good walking onto the fells directly from the site. Easy access through immaculate and “flower decked” farmyard. Set of five spacious pitches each with electric hook up, own drinking water and own grey water disposal. Each pitch has a hardstanding surrounded by lawned area with plenty of space between units. The front three pitches having excellent views across the valley. The rear two being staggered to also provide good views. Excellent and spotless stainless steel chemical toilet disposal point which is cleaned regularly and also disinfectant spray provided. There is an additional and almost identical set of five pitches adjacent which are actually a licensed site. The two areas seem to work well together and do not detract from the CL experience. Longer term storage is also offered with caravans being moved from out of sight storage area behind farm buildings onto the CL and sited as a service to customers. Lots of thought obviously been given to Covid situation and translated into sensible practical action such and collecting refuse from each site. An obviously well invested, friendly and efficiently run site. Thanks to Val and Andrew for a great stay. We look forward to a return visit. O

Marvellous stay

This CL is outstanding. The welcome from the hosts was genuine, the 'super-pitches' were a luxury we hadn't experienced previously, and the immediate area had footpaths that are well-signed and actually exist! We were sited on the top of the 3 mini-sites so had uninterrupted views across to Dufton and Merton Pikes with High Cup Nick in between. In a 3 night-stay we got up all of them straight from the site through Brampton with very little road-walking needed. Cows and calves were in the neighbouring field, with inquisitive chickens and ducks walking around the site. The upkeep of the grass and site was top-notch with sensible extra covid measures introduced. Certainly an all-year site with hard-standings and paved drives. We will be back.

Stunning site

We stayed here for four nights over New Year. Amazing views and so peaceful with lovely walks from the site. Wished we could have stayed longer, we will return.

What a find

I was looking for a small site not too far from Ullswater as we were dropping off our grandchildren on an Outward Bound course there. So glad I came across this one. Immaculately kept, even the barn/ garage where the very clean toilet is is in apple pie order. Still here as I write this watching the ever changing weather over the North Pennines, don’t think I would ever tire of it. As others have said, a warm , helpful welcome . Easy to access many areas, Appleby-in-Westmorland is a pretty little town only about 2 miles away. Yet to discover other places but now the grandchildren have been dropped off we shall do so! I’ve stayed on a few sites, large and small in the Lake District and surrounding areas but this little site is hard to beat
