Why stay here ...

For well over forty years I have enjoyed welcoming Club members to Kaker Mill Farm, which though 1.5 miles from Junction 36 of M6, is in a peaceful rural setting midway Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale off A65. The CL, a former orchard and is lawned.

As well as lovely local walks it is an ideal centre for visiting the Lakes, Coast and Dales.

Fishing nearby - be my guest. Bus service and village shop within a mile. New shower also recently installed.

On our way to Scotland

We only stayed for one night but will make an effort to return to stay a little longer. Beautiful all round views with great access to the Lake District and what a lovely warm welcome from Mrs Clarke Just a couple of words of warning, make sure you have blocks and ramps as the pitches are sloping and access can be difficult / slippery when it’s been raining

A hidden gem

What a wee gem of a site. The welcome from Mrs Clark couldn't have been better. She is a wonderful person for whom nothing is too much trouble. We were put in the yard opposite the site - we were only staying one night en route from Scotland to South Wales, so it was perfectly fine. The toilet was very clean but definitely rustic! We thought this CL was beautiful.

Enjoyable 3 week stay - but

This CL is in a really quiet part of south Cumbria on the outskirts of the Lake District National Park - very tidy - the grass is cut every week - a lot of the pitches are sloping - and plenty of room. Cassette toilet emptying is a bit quirky - down the WC toilet bowl and grey waste down a grid in the street - very different. Excellent location for exploring the South Lakes " the best part of the Lake District". Our stay was spoiled on the last weekend - there were 9 outfits and 11 dogs on site - 6 of the 11 were roaming free and none of them knew their names - so were out of control. Oh - nearly forgot, - a garage that fills Safefill Bottles about a mile away. We will not be returning as i believe more than 5 outfits occurs quite often. John and Carole

Overcrowding

I would love to give this site 5 stars but there was more than 5 vans on this site as per previous review.

Mixed feelings

We were booked in to stay on this site over the early May Bank holiday. When we arrived on the Friday there were four vans already on site, but the owner said that there had been some confusion and she thought some people might arrive who had not sent their deposit but didn't confirm how many. This is a lovely site in a nice setting and the field is relatively large. It does undulate though and there are limited pitches which provide level ground which does restrict where you can site the van. Our worries that there may be some significant noise from the nearby M6 was ill founded. Having pitched up we became concerned when during the rest of the afternoon two motorhomes and a caravan arrived and set up as well. Across from the entrance to the site, the owner has a barn with a yard in front which had one van on it when we arrived, but two motorhomes and a caravan also pitched up in this area the next day. These additional vans use the same water, shower and chemical disposal facilities as the CL. despite the web site saying their use is exclusive to the CL. The next day one of the motorhomes left the CL but another one took its place. Whilst we appreciate it was a Bank Holiday weekend, we purposefully choose to stay on CL sites with their 5 van limit. It is our suspicion that this was not a ‘one off’ event and that it could be repeated at other times of the year so if you are intending to stay on this site please be aware.
