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.

Great little site

Had a lovely stopover in our campervan last week during our tour of the Lakes. Barbara is very helpful and welcoming even before we arrived! Lovely, quantity and spotless little loo packed with all the essential information you need. Looking forward to returning and spending some quality time at this little gem!

What a wonderful place to stay

We came her as our first explerience of a CL site. It was wondeful, the locaton was fabulous, the site superb and the hosts very, very welcoming and helpful. There were plenty of walks locally and the information very helpful. A very peacful and tranquil place to visit and if all the CL sites are as good as this we are going to have some good nights in our van. Really recomend you go there to see for yourself.

Off the beaten track lakeland

Before I start I make it clear this is an excellent small CL. There are a few minor warnings, the site is just off a 'A' road, however all is not as it seems - said 'A' road has very little traffic - we certainly did not notice it. The road is narrow though in places so follow instructions carefully. The site itself is small, however shamefully not many people visit, this meant that we had the site to ourselves for 5 or 6 nights out of 8 nights over Spring Bank Week - so if you like the peace it should suit nicely. I am not a fan of hard standings and prefer quick drying grass pitches, but this is the Lakes and we were thankful for the hardstandings with the wet weather, better having a dry difficult to erect awning than a dirty caravan. Toilet facilities and information room are always handy and this certainly did not disappoint. In addition Barbara and Howard were friendly and helpful. If you have read this far and want to try a different (quiet) part of Lakeland, give it a go. I think you will find it rewarding.

The Old School House

Stayed here in November, & really liked the place, very friendly owners & a toilet too. The site is just off the road & access is a bit tight only attempt it coming from Broughton so you can turn right into the site! Do not attempt it from the other direction! Although the site is right beside the road after 10pm it's a very quiet road & noise is NOT a problem. The pitches are surrounded by mature trees which does obscure the views somewhat. This would be lovely place on a summers evening, there are picnic tables & even a fire pit. TV reception is OK on an omni. We went out in Broughton in Furness & had a great night. Lively place & friendly. It's not too far away but there are some steep hills. You can walk into town via a footpath or along the narrow road takes about 25 minutes.... get the local mini bus taxi to bring you back... it's worth it! A great place to explore from!

Quiet tranquil.

We are a couple with small two birth touring caravan. I would seek Barbara's advice if taking a large touring unit. Barbara sent an email with directions a few days prior to our visit these turned out to be useful as you will avoid steep narrow winding roads. We had a great few days loved the area best views from pitch four and five, plenty-full great walks from the site, near to the village 1.8 miles away where you can get all your needs, a short drive will take you to places of interest and more walks.  The single toilet doubles up as an information point. The site and facilities just as described, level hard-standing shale, well worth a visit/stay.
