Peaceful and lovely sote

This site is in a beautiful location located next to a small river with beautiful views over fields and the fells. It has been easy access from the M6 and A 66. This is a working farm and several pu be lucky footpaths fun through the site into the surrounding countryside. The site is immaculate with the grass cut short regularly. Easy access to water and toilet waste disposal. Basically a site not to be missed a credit to the owner.

Perfect

This is exactly what you expect from a CL. Peace and tranquility - far enough away from A66 for it not to be heard. All you can hear is the babbling stream , sheep and birds … oh and hens in next field . The view is to die for - in the shadow of Blencathra with smaller peaks to the south - snow covered when we visited ! But the most amazing thing is how helpful the owner is - we arrived and set up awning and all - to find our water heater had packed up . We tried several local caravan repair places to no avail so thought we’d have to move. However a last thought to call the owner to see if he could help led him to offering us the use of the bathroom in the on site holiday cottage. He even refused to take any extra money !! What an absolute star. The cottage also happens to be brilliant so if you have non caravan friends I can recommend that too Thanks Philip you saved our holiday !

Another enjoyable visit.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this quiet part of the Lake District. There are some lovely walks from the site. Our car was never used during our stay. Beautiful views of Blencathra and surrounding Fells. Easy walk to the A66 where you can catch an hourly bus service to Keswick and beyond of Penrith. The pitches are well spaces and level hard standing with the usual water / waste and electric facilities. We look forward to returning. Thank you Philip.

Disappointing for the money.

This site used to be one of our favourites under the previous ownership. It was a no frills, very basic site but good value with great views and a good location. Since the new owner has taken over it still has the views and the basic facilities but the price has gone up. Overall the site is starting to feel neglected. The approach track is through two gates and is very tight in places. It's ok but I wouldn't want to do it with an 8' wide van. It's made worse because you have to avoid some potentially damaging potholes. The pitches are well spaced hard standing but are very narrow and the grass/mud is starting to encroach on to them. Fine in summer, but very muddy in winter. There is no re-cycling, just a small domestic bin on the other side of the entrance gate. The chemical disposal point is fine but is of the "you get to stare at everyone else's sewage" variety. The water pressure is low. None of this is a problem for us at the right price and and you can see from one of the reviews below that in June 2021 it was advertised as £13.50 per night when in reality it was £15. It is now advertised as £15 but when the owner visited to take our money (he doesn't live at the site) he had put the tariff up to £17.50. This was never mentioned when we made the booking! When you are on holiday you don't want an argument so we just paid up but it doesn't seem right. We understand that energy prices are increasing and tarrifs will increase but all we ask is that we know, up front, what the price is! For this reason I wouldn't recommend the site and if you do book, check how much it is and get it in writing.

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.
