Good time at Kiln Hill Barn

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.

Beautiful setting with amazing views looking over the valley and mountains. A great shame that the owner was very unpleasant to us and others with regards to where to pitch and park, no people skills considering he is in the holiday business ! The facilities were adequate but the grass was uncut for a week and a half of our 2 week stay, but we were not allowed to pitch up or park on the grass anyway.

Amazing Site

We booked this site in the depths of winter when you really need a summer holiday to look forward too. We were not disappointed. The views are spectacular and we found many walks we could do from the site. The site is well maintained and very clean. We are now planning a holiday next May with our neice and nephew and hoping to stay here then.

Delightful return

We stated this time last year that we would return here as it is a delightful place with wonderful views and for once the weather was the icing on the cake. Great base for walks and access to Keswick and nearby areas of interest. Lambs bouncing around with bird life of all varieties. Peaceful site and good for stargazing toboot. Even enjoyed the diggers preparing the New water pipeline. Once again we enjoyed a great c/l site and look forward to our next stay.

Great site, but one gripe...

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.
