Disappointed

Wallthwaite
Studied the reviews as we always do, picked the site for so many reviews as peaceful. Arrived Sunday for a 2 night stay it was lovely and so peaceful, 4 other vans on site no noise whatsoever from them. We awoke on the Monday morning our only full day, to the sound of workmen and power tools from a property next to the site. We left the site for a trip to Keswick at 9.30 returned at 13.00, thought we’d have a lovely peaceful afternoon back at the site. Not to be, returned to workmen with their work bench’s outside the property they were working on, loud music and constant power tools. We tolerated this for couple of hours then felt we had to leave the site for some peace. I txt the site owner who responded quickly, he had just left to go on holiday but informed he he does not own the property which is right next to the site field but he would try to contact his neighbours. He was very apologetic and did offer another another night. Tuesday morning as we left again more power tools. I’m sure everyone can empathise with how disappointing such a trip is, we really needed a relaxing short break we are self employed have usual stresses of daily life and have a very recent bereavement. From this stay I now will ask the question before booking does the site owner know of any planned works, it’s not something I expected on booking a CL.

Amazing views, great CL

Wallthwaite
We arrived on the Mayday bank holiday. Our first thought was what a magnificent views of Blencathra. The CL is situated between Penrith and Keswick so you have a good choice of shopping opportunities in both towns. Access is over a cattle grid and through an unfenced sheep field which was also full of very young lambs. It was delightful to see them though you do have to be careful as they do have a tendency to be quite skittish and run in front of the car if you spook them. There is a gate at the other end of the field to go through. This was fine for our caravan but we did think it might be a bit tight for an 8` wide caravan. The site is then to the right past some old farm buildings. You just need to be a bit careful at this point but it is not difficult to negotiate at all. Just a note here, don't be tempted to come via the small road leading from Troutbeck. This is single track road and there is a hump back bridge followed by a steep right turn. I am sure a caravan would ground on the bridge. Waste grey water is just disposed of by a pipe to the rough grass at the sides of the site so that is one less job to do. The chemical disposal point is a simple cover over a sewer. The site had not long reopened when we visited. Phillip, was very friendly and approachable, he visited about twice a day. He was telling us he is renovating the old farmhouse and will be moving in shortly. The pitches are all hardstanding though some people did opt to park on the grass instead and turned their caravan around to get a good view. TV reception was good when we realised you had to change your aerial to a vertical position. You need to point your aerial towards Keswick. Mobile reception was also good on Vodafone and EE. We loved this site and will come back next time we visit the North Lakes. It was a ideally located to reach Keswick, Ullswater and the Borrowdale Valley.

Wallthwaite CL

Wallthwaite
Stayed for 5 nights in October. Very pleasant CL, although compact you didn't feel on top of each other. We didn't see the owners due to Covid. Potable water and waste were easily located on the right hand side 1/2 way down. Refuse bins located near the gate, although there didn't appear to be any separation for re-cycling. Easy access for the A66, although you may need to check the the lane to Wallthwaite before turning in as there isn't any passing places. Enjoyed or stay here and will hopefully return again.

Perfect for walking up Blencathra

Wallthwaite
We stayed here in our motorhome for a few nights in September. There are great views of Blencathra. The site was easy to find, and although the owners are isolating due to Covid, we had no problems locating the facilities. If you are hillwalkers, you can walk from the site up to the top of Blencathra (we did a circular route with a pub on the way back). The site is not quite flat, and we needed blocks under the wheels on one side. Mobile signal was good. We would stay again.
