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.

Excellent Site

We stayed for 4 nights and loved this site. the setting in the woods was amazing with loads of space between pitches and friendly staff (we enjoyed the treasure hunt). Nearby attractions were only a short drive and we will definitely be back.

My husband and I went in our caravan recently. We loved the peace and quiet, the scenery and the staff were great. Will book again.

First time stay at this lovely site

After a horrendous journey up the M6 in torrential rain, it was lovely to receive such a warm welcome from the site staff. The site is split into small cut de sacs and you have the choice of pitching with other units or on your own. We thought it was a really lovely site and will definitely be back either before they close this winter or early spring next year. Unfortunately we only had one night here on the way home, but really enjoyed the stay and thought it was a beautiful site. Very interested in the old gunpowder works and hope to do the tour on our next stay. Facilities are as you expect on a club site and were spotless. Wardens do fantastic job of keeping the site clean and tidy given that it is in a forest. Highly recommended.

Won’t be back.

We arrived later than expected and perhaps that’s why we got a horrid site at junction of 3 roads. As is usual with this Club one is told where there are spaces but by the time you get there it has been taken. Very difficult site to drive around, tracks going every which way. Was pleased we had only booked for one night. Will definitely not stay here again.

excellent site

This was our first time with a motorhome and we couldn't have chosen a better site to start with. It was as if someone had taken my wish list and turned it into a camp site. From the lovely woodland approach, to the tranquil , small cluster's of pitches it was perfect. The toilet and showers blocks are 2nd to none, they are so clean you could eat your food in them. Perfect for dog walking, the staff were so friendly and helpful, The only downside is, it has spoilt us for any other site lol, We will defiantly be returning soon, in fact we didn't want to leave.
