Why stay here ...
Splendid site set in 4 acres of land, (all pitches hard standing,) with a picnic area, picnic benches, a fire pit, plus several connected footpaths and lovely views of the open countryside.
Great starting point for many walks, Beacon Tarn, Woodland Fell, Broughton Mills, Broughton in Furness. Circular walks taking in pubs, cafes and shops ( grocers, butchers, bakery and post office) in the village 1.8 miles away.
Walk or cycle on the Coniston old railway line which is traffic free so safe for children with the added incentive of a good playground at the end.
Excellent site for exploring the uncommercial south lakes, but Coniston is just 8 miles away.

We visited this site looking for a quiet site which with the A road being right along side it was quite noisy. The entrance to the site is not very big and our caravan only just fitted through the gate which did not impress hubby. With it being on a busy A road you had to be careful when leaving the site because of the speed of the traffic.To get the caravan back out the site I had to stand in the middle of the road to stop the traffic and then someone else had to watch the back end so we didn't hit the stone wall or the fence. We could not get a tv reception and someone else told me it was not good on the site and they had trouble. If you put your awning up then there is no where on the pitch to park your car. Luckily there was no one on one of the pitches as the owner only uses 4 out of the 5 so we could park our car there. The rubbish bins are right at the end of the owners drive and to get to the toilet and chemical waste you have to go down a steep slope. On the last night we had problems with out electricity going off for no reason
Comment from the Club:
Thank you for your review. The CL Owner has been in touch as she works really hard to ensure everyone has the best possible time on their site. Please be advised if you had mentioned the tv signal the CL Owner would have been more than happy to have helped you with this and could have also righted the electric for you. As they were not aware of this they couldn't assist. With the site being small they only ever take 4 units so there is always a space for cars to be parked, this way it keeps everyone comfortable.
