A comfortable CL with good facilities

We stayed here for a single night, and we had no complaints at all. We missed the site entrance at first when using satnav - best not to! The entrance is a bit strange through a caravan sales forecourt, but the site is level with good hardstandings. The toilets and showers are very good, and clean. Useful for a visit to Carlisle.

Good CL , helpful staff.

We stayed end of may 2019. Two adults and two teenagers. The staff were friendly and helpful( unlike the dalston hall caravan site who would not honour a booking they took from us in the January to attend a wedding at the hall). The staff of this CL really got us out of a whole when the hall site let us down at the last minute. TheCL has flat , hardstanding pitches with elec, water and waste water, TV reception excellent (even with our "bee sting" aerial!!). Well located for local attractions. A bit of road noise, but not noticeable at night. Good showers and toilet facilities.

Great location.

Great location for lots of different things to do. Carlisle city centre is only 10 minutes drive away. Local shops in Dalston have lovely local fresh produce. Nearest supermarket is Aldi just a couple of miles away towards Carlisle. Good, level and big hardstanding pitches with water tap and electric hook up. We will definitely come back here in the future.

A good little CL worth giving a try

We spent 4 nights on this site having been allocated a pitch number when booking, which I thought was a good idea in case we couldn't be personally met on arrival. The site is located to the rear of a sales/servicing business, which at times was busy but not intrusive as the CL is well back from the activity. The pitches are hard standing separated by grass and are a generous size, well separated and level. A water tap and drain is located on every pitch. A clean and tidy large toilet and separated shower is provided and a reasonably priced washing machine and tumble drier is also provided. The swimming pool is a waste of time as it has to be pre booked and works out very expensive unless at least 6 or 7 of you share the price. The owner was in no rush to take my money saying at least twice, - 'oh see me later, there's no rush'. In the end I had collar him with money in my hand as we were leaving the day after. There is a busy road which passes in front of the premises, but the pitches are well back and no disturbance was experienced. Phone and tv signals were very good. The view from the pitches was only onto a grassed area but was pleasant enough. Each pitch and the whole site was lit at night. The EHU's were only 12 amps so you had to be careful what you switched on together. All in all, a smashing site well worth another visit if only to get in more visits to more places of interest, having had a good nights sleep.

Great location! Good overall but a few snags!

We stayed on this site for 5 nights from the 11th July! Booking was easy. We were greeted and shown to our pitch which was level and spacious. Good clean facilities. Great location with easy access to the coast, Hadrian's Wall, the Lake District and the city of Carlisle. We had days out in all these places. The site is part of a caravan retailer business so there's lots of caravans on site albeit empty. This creates quite a busy atmosphere. Also there is caravan storage which is accessed through the CL. Although there wasn't too much traffic it was intrusive having cars coming in and out driving at speed which wasn't safe in my opinion when there were young children about! We would stay here again but only as an overnight stop rather than as a holiday base.
