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.

Lovely two weeks exploring the Lake District

We arrived to a very friendly welcome from the wardens, we paid and took our instructions to drive around and select a pitch. We were lucky to find pitch 21 was available, and thoroughly enjoyed our own ‘private’ glad for two weeks. There are two facility blocks, cleaned daily and at different times, so there is always one block available for use. The on-site shop stocks a range of food items, including all important ice creams on the hottest day in the UK. The NT woodland provided ‘on our doorstep’ daily dog walks, including to the local farm shop (with a cafe and sells a range of produce, including: fruit, vegetables, meat, cheese, bread and deli items). Or an extended walk up the River Kent to Hawes Lane Bridge, returning on the other side of the river and crossing back across the footbridge. We also enjoyed a longer day walk into Kendal and back, with a lunch stop at a pub in Kendal. We ventured further afield to explore Tarn Hows, Grizedale Forest, Arnside, Ennerdale Water and Ulverston Canal. We thoroughly enjoyed our first stay on a full club site, and would recommend this great site with friendly wardens. We are looking forward to our next club site stay. PS we were not staying with children so our star rating against ‘good for families’ is a bit of a guess (a ‘Not Applicable’ option needs to be provided).

The most beautiful site anywhere, PROVIDED you like woodland.

This lovely site is based around the historic ruins of the New Sedgwick Gunpowder works. It comprises a series of woodland glades on a hillside above the river Kent. You can rarely see more than about five other outfits. As others have said the approach is narrow and some pitches require above average manouvering skills but there are also plenty of straightforward ones, including a large flat area if you have a really large outfit. The site was unusually quiet last week giving plenty of choice of pitch. It is heavily wooded with lots of undergrowth and the birds, hedgehogs, rabbits, etc that this environment encourages. The facilities are immaculately clean and well maintained, and the wardens this year are some of the most friendly and helpful I've met in my many years of using Low Park Wood, (Kendal).

Lovely site - tricky access for larger caravans

Kendal is a lovely peaceful site in a woodland area very close to the main town. Small secluded areas create a peaceful setting and create a true sense of being in the middle of the countryside. Facilities were good, though the toilets are a bit of a hilly walk from some pitches so be sure to mention when booking of you have any mobility issues. Our main problem was the tight access to the site, and then to the pitches. The main access road is single track with passing places for the last half mile or so, however the passing places are quite tight and some distance apart. One on the site, the roads are quite hilly and very narrow in places with steep verges and embankments in some places. We have a twin axle, 8 foot wide caravan and found access to be too restricted in some places, though we made it with extreme caution. We were lucky on delarture that the pitch opposite us was empty (motorhome left for the day) so we able to use that to manouvre onto the road - had the pitch been occupied it would have been almost impossible to get out due to steepness of the road and sharp turn required to get onto the exit route. We'd recommend the site to anyone looking for a peaceful location - it's lovely, however we probably won't return with our current caravan which is simply too large for the site. We'd recommend that the Club mention the restricted access on the main site webpage, perhaps mentioning that some visitors might find the narrow roads difficult to negotiate with twin axle or extra wide caravans.
