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.

Peaceful

Booked a three night stay and we decided we wanted to arrive a day earlier and it wasn’t a problem the wardens are extremely friendly and helpful they spend a lot of time going around the site checking everything is up to a high standard. it’s full of wildlife and streams which run through the site, the sound of a running stream while sitting out with a cuppa is beautiful. It’s absolutely perfect for dogs. You don’t have to drive anywhere if you want somewhere to walk it’s on your doorstep. The toilet facilities were Immaculate and there’s plenty WD’s dotted around the site. This was our first stay and it won’t be the last.

Peaceful Stay

Stayed here for 3 nights on our way back home to Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿.Very easy access from the M6 if you follow the route recommendation from the club. We arrived and were greeted by the very very friendly staff and soon began to choose our pitch. The pitches are set in Woodlands and they are very large the facilities were spotless and the overall experience was a credit to the Clubs Wardens.My only complaint was the very poor tv signal despite having a tv hook up connection on the pitch otherwise the stay was excellent

Lovely - but other guest causes despair!!

Had a lovely peaceful stay with family over the weekend and cannot fault site or staff and would thoroughly recommend it. Only issue was another guest's behaviour. The washing facilities were well maintained, but on one occasion was marred by the irresponsible guest who decided to wash their dog in the baby and toddler washroom. When my daughter took my 2 year old grandchild to bath him the room (first one you pass on entry ) had been left in an absolutely filthy state by someone who had clearly been using the facility to wash their dog. It is not a case of cleaning it after use, but you should not be using it in the first place. I know some people treat dogs like their babies, but this is ridiculous and thoroughly unhygienic. It is something I will be monitoring in the future and will not hesitate to challenge anyone who decides to be so stupid and disrespectful.

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).
