Spent 4 nights in October. View from the pitches towards Borrowdale is fantastic. Site is very quiet. Somewhat muddy in wet weather. Access is easy from the A591, though you come across the site entrance at very short notice when driving from Keswick (More detailed directions are available on Kiln Hill's own website). Under new ownership and management since August 2019. We received a warm welcome and were invited to choose from the available pitches, which are all on a slope. Approach to customers is friendly and relaxed. We only used the EHU, waste disposal and fresh water facilities so didn't verify the other facilities advertised.
The hardstanding makes this perfect for winter caravanning, with fabulous views through the valley towards Bassenthwaite Lake. Welcoming owner, and The Castle Hotel is around the corner for food and drink - although we preferred the home-cooked pub grub at The Sun about a mile away in Bassenthwaite. Plenty of walks on tap. Our only gripe was the dog toilet on the grassy apron in front of the caravans. Watching a dog defecate while eating my breakfast wasn't on. This was used by caravanners and guests staying in the adjacent holiday accommodation. Also, while it was picked up, I still wouldn't want my kids playing on the grass in the summer. Get it moved somewhere else out of sight, please.
