Very Welcoming

Riverside
Very well organised site! And so very peaceful.The owner,John, does everything himself. A qualified electrician, he has also made the sheds( toilet and shower) ,done all necessary plumbing and kept the grass cut and pruned the conifers. When I arrived my small tv aerial didn’t seem to work so John gave me an old aluminium post on which to attach my aerial( which I did with a couple of elastic bands). With this extra height my tv worked perfectly! The WiFi worked well mostly during the day but seemed to go down during the evening, though this didn’t spoil the holiday.( perhaps due to the rural location. I was only a half-hour drive fro Ullswater where I found the start of my climb of Helvellyn ( at Glenridding) and easy access to the lake for some kayaking. On top of this the weather was superb. Would highly recommend this site.

Fantastic little site.

Riverside
What a lovely peaceful site, extremely well kept, excellent communications prior to arrival, facilities (toilet and shower) are in separate sheds but more than adequate and extremely clean. Easy access to the north lakes, Penrith and Carlisle. Certainly well worth visiting.

An absolute gem.

Riverside
Bank holiday weekend and so peaceful. Lovely setting next to the river with immaculately kept grounds. The owners work so hard to keep everything so perfect. Clear instructions on arrival and good communication on booking. Friendly welcoming and helpful. Spacious level pitches. Quite cycling direct from site and the wonderful beer at the Crown at Hesket Newmarket is a short ride away. We cycled to Penrith one day and around Skiddaw another. 48k Hardly saw a car. Perfect.

Still dinner conversation

Riverside
We loved this site - quiet, peaceful and beautifully kept. The facilities were memorable - really clever and very quaint.. we still tell stories of the little sheds! The site is located on the outskirts of the Lakes, an ideal spot to avoid the holiday crowds, requiring a bit more driving to get to the peaks, but well worth the extra effort.
