Perfect CL.

Bolton Hall
The site has some of the best views in England. Superb location for walking, cycling and exploring this amazing part of the country. The site has been carefully planned to give amazing views whilst being secluded and quiet. Don't tell everyone!

A lovely site, very dog friendly with a fenced in dog run. two good beaches at Seascale and Drigg. A short drive to Wasdale and Scafell Pike we will be returning for a few more times this year. The owners Karen and Dave are very pleasant and helpful.

Finding Gold

Bolton Hall
We found this amazing hideaway after staying at another site close by that could not unhelpfully accommodate a longer stay! How lucky we were as we found Bolton Hall the "Gem of the Western Lakes". Tranquillity in abundance, easy access to the Mountains or the Coast any the many attractions that the area has to offer. An added bonus is the direct access to a multitude of Bridleways and Footpaths directly from the site, which means that crossing roads is kept to a bare minimum Karen & Dave are fantastic hosts and will help or leave as you require. Grass pitches are not at all muddy as the base is natural sand with the best drainage. Open all year round Cumbria has beautiful seasonal changes that should not be missed Near by are a multitude of good places to "Eat & Drink" serving delicious food. Once you visit Bolton Hall you will want to return time & again

March Visit en route to Scotland

Bolton Hall
We stopped at this lovely site on the way up to Scotland recently and hope we can go there again. We were met by the owner and she was so lovely, friendly and helpful. She gave us a copy of a map showing walks from the site. The site is lovely and quiet (except for the very windy night we experienced on first night I thought was going to blow us away) We weren't there very long but would've loved to stay longer (hopefully another time) We thoroughly recommend it As has been previously stated please don't be put off by bad reviews try it yourself first

True Gem Hope to return in Spring

Bolton Hall
There's not much to say that hasn't already been said in previous reviews but don't let one bad review put you off. We booked for 5 nights ended up staying 11 think that says it all. The owners were extremely friendly & full of local knowledge of the area. Karen was always about to offer help & advice but not in your space (if anything probably me keeping her talking). Dave was more than happy to show us his pet Stag & Deers which he kept behind a walled enclosure. Even their household pets & the horse were friendly too. There are lots of wild birds in the are if you are like me & feed them I suggest taking a lot of bird food. The site is well maintained although it was mid Oct when we stayed there was plenty of colour from the plants n shrubs around the site, can only imagine what it looks like in Spring/Summer. Single track road leading to the site but no different to most CL's. We were lucky enough to stay on the sites second field 2 narrow posts to get through but wider than you think just take it steady. Toilet adjacent to outbuildings didn't use so can't comment. Lots of cycling & walks directly from the site so no need to use your car, For the more adventurous just to name a few Scafell Pike, Haystacks & Old Man of Coniston aren't that far away along with Wastwater, Ennerdale, Buttermere, Crummack & Bassenthwaite. If you like scenery I would suggest a drive over Hardknott and Wrynose Pass not for the fainthearted. also worth a visit is Muncaster Castle, Eskdale Railway, Ravenglass its a pretty village, the start of Coast to Coast @ St Bees just a little up the coast road, you can see the IOM too, slow roads but you are in the Country . In the Village of Gosforth which is walking distance you'll find a small Coop, ATM, couple of pubs & a baker's OMG their meat n mushroom pies are delicious. Pub in Santon Bridge again you could walk to it, Service Station n store in Holmrook, Tesco in Millom to name a few. We are both on 3 network & didn't have a problem with signal whatsoever even took Now TV stick & tethered to catch up on TV. Will definitely return Thank You once again Tracey & Andy
