Why stay here ...

Set in National Trust woodland, Kendal Club Site is so peaceful you'll not want to leave. From the country lane approach running beside a tumbling river, to the glades where you can pitch amidst the wild flowers, this caravan park is a small slice of heaven. Some will be interested to know that Kendal Club Site is on the site of a 19thC gunpowder mill.

Kendal Club Site lets you enjoy nature to the full, from the swoop of the fells to the luxurious blue of the lakes There are several scenic walks to be had and don't forget to bring along your binoculars because the bird life is varied and colourful. If you're a wild flower enthusiast you won't be disappointed as you'll see a range of marvellous blooms on display, not least wild orchids. For those who enjoy the sport of fishing, the caravan site also features a river that is popular amongst anglers (with a National River Licence). When you fancy a bite to eat, the nearby market town of Kendal is famous for its mint cake and trusted for its hearty meals. Nearby facilities including a farm shop, supermarket and cafe, enable you to conveniently stock up on supplies for your holiday.

The site is a great base from which to explore the delights of Cumbria and an ideal stopover point for onward travel towards Scotland.

New favourite Lake District site

Kendal Caravan Club Site
After a 10 year gap we decided to revisit the Kendal site. We've been going to Coniston the last few years but couldn't get in this summer. Absolutely loved this site. Best welcome we've ever had at any of the club sites. With two older boys there was the freedom for them to play by the river, in the woods and go biking. Excellent shaded pitch which was great first half of the week when it was very hot but no so great when it rained in the second half. Had some noise from young people having late night parties across the river on the hot weekend. Swimming, alcohol and drugs not a great combination but we were grateful they all went home safely. Despite that we'll definitely be back.

Probably the best site !

Kendal Caravan Club Site
We visit the site regularly as only a few hours drive. Fantastic walks with inviting woodland setting keeps us returning with our dogs. This is one of our favourite sites. Wonderful layout with a sense of space and freedom. Over the last year, no fault of the wardens or Club, we have noticed more dogs running around off leads. Dog mess NOT PICKED UP by owners, dogs out of control and barking at what or who ever passes by. Owners of the dogs seem oblivious and do nothing. We have 2 dogs that travel with us, so its no get at the dog owners. Kids play in the woods in and around the site, so the constant dog mess is not only dangerous to these children but is now spoiling the walks, dodging the mess, that we often pick up and correctly dispose of. Inconsiderate members/people are starting to ruin the experience. Also many blue NON awning pitches are on the whole pitched up with awnings out, taking up their neighbours pitch space. Why? What is the point of having these blue peg pitches if no one follows rules & wardens fail to even approach these people to remove awnings from other neighbouring pitches. We saw an older couple being very nervous about someone who was in a blue pitch next to them. They had to squeeze their unit in and park car across their pitch to accommodate an awning that shouldn't be there. The Club needs to mae members aware PLEASE.

Tranquil woodland haven

Kendal Caravan Club Site
Stayed 3 nights here and all aspects met club standards. Good sized pitch for our 6.35m van with room for canopy and more. Warm welcome from staff who met new arrivals and got everyone processed efficiently and timeously. Relaxed attitude to choosing your pitch with the advice to drive round as many times as you’d like before making final choice. Weather on the whole good - trees provided natural shelter from the light rain showers. Plenty of opportunities for us to explore the area on foot and/or bike. Lovely riverside and Forest walk. walkAn ideal spot to break your journey if travelling north/south or vice versa. Low rating for good for families as this didn’t apply to us but am sure the families we saw there were enjoying themselves.

Excellent site staff and facilities.

Kendal Caravan Club Site
This site is in a beautiful setting by the side of a lovely river with a mixture of pitches which can be in either sunny spots shade or dappled shade. Upon arrival the friendly staff guide you into a well managed holding area for reception and booking in and you are given a selection of pitches to choose from. Everything is well maintained and clean and in our 10 day stay every member of staff we encountered were friendly knowledgeable about the local area and happy to help us with any of our questions. There is an excellent farm shop a 10 minute walk from the site and plenty to do within walking distance in the area too or jump on a bus get a taxi or just drive into kendal which is 5 miles away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this site and highly recommend it 10 out of 10.

Wooded, peaceful campsite

Kendal Caravan Club Site
This is a lovely campsite very wooded and shady, you can walk to local farm shop that also has a cafe. Also a walk along the river which is beautiful with waterfalls and very unspoiled. Some form of transport would be useful if staying several days. However the approach road is particularly narrow and severely potholed ( I don’t know why this is not rectified) . Also it can be difficult to find a free pitch as the site is divided up into little cul de sacs which makes it tricky to locate a pitch.
