Our Favourite CL in Cumbria!

We have been coming to this CL for nearly 10 years now and it's in the top 5 of all the CL's we've stayed at in our 12 years of caravanning. Mrs Richie's late parents ran the CL for many years beforehand and they were lovely folk as are Thelma & Andrew - it's a compact site but very well kept and Mr & Mrs Ritchie are always pleased to see us. There is a bus stop just outside the CL and you can take the bus to Keswick or Penrith as well - Just around the corner is Rheghed Visitor Centre and we sometimes pop over to pick up a Wi-Fi signal or just a cup of coffee. I really can't praise Thelma & Andrew enough for their assistance and help over the years.. I should also note that Harry (Thelma's Dad who ran the CL with his late wife) passed away recently so I'm sure she & Andrew can be forgiven up there were one or two mix ups in bookings as per a previous review. Over our caravanning years we've kept a record and a rating of all the sites we been to and Slapestone Villa comes out at 88% (Five start all round)!

3 day stop

Stayed here for 3 nights end of March 2018. Really nice site with fantastic views towards the mountains south of Ullswater. Easy access to public transport, and a nice pub in the nearby village of Stainton (Kings Arms Inn). Does great food, and the ale is not too bad either. No problems with booking, the pitch was marked clearly with our name to reserve the spot. Will definately be back.

Booking Disaster!

In June 2017, I requested 10-17th & 31st August 2017 + 1st September 2017 for the start and finish of our Scottish holiday with Mrs Ritchie (owner). She was unable to book the 31/08/2017 & 1/09/2017 as full. We were informed that the 7 nights pitch was on her additional site of two caravans. We arrived and found a note on door stating she was away, so we pitched on the only available 7th pitch where she described, set up our awning and settled down to tea. Mrs Ritchie's daughter then called and informed us that we were not booked in for August as her mother had booked us in for July 2017. Mrs Ritchie stated on the phone that she had another customer arriving the next day on a 3 night booking and that we would have to move off. The fact that we had booked last June for seven nights in August, me being a disabled pensioner and my wife with high blood pressure, made no difference as Mrs Ritchie was adamant that it was us who had to find an alternative site and not her or the other customer. Both my wife and I and her daughter were all upset, however, within an hour, her daughter had found another site just 5 minuets away and took me to view it prior to booking for the remaining 6 nights. She and her partner also helped us to dismantle our awning ready for departure. I am still waiting for an apology or explanation as to why Mrs Ritchie ever thought that we would want a booking in July when I explained in full our August bookings. Would strongly recommend an email or text message from Mrs Richie confirming your future bookings. Only for her daughters hard work and sympathetic understanding, I would have given this site one star.

Charming little site.

A little gem of a site ,great base for Northern Lakes. The site is well cared for with spacious pitches and wonderful views towards the fells. Convenient access to and from M6 . Beware of the narrow entrance especially if you have a large caravan. Site is good value for money.
