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.

First Visit to Kendal Club Site.

Kendal Caravan Club Site
First visit to kendal club site in September 21. this site was easy to find was just off motorway J36 of m6 . loverly reception greetings from warden's not your usual club site set on the grounds of an old gunpowder mill, there is a river that runs down one side of the site. toilet facilities are very clean. TV & WiFi very poor reception , pitches mostly hard standing surround by trees in little alcoves . plenty of dog walks round site, this is a big site easy to get lost. will return next year really enjoyed this site.

Secluded Pitches

Kendal Caravan Club Site
First stay here. Pitches not in rows but in little enclaves scattered amongst the trees. Really liked this. Very easy to access the Lakes or the peninsula - as just off major routes close by. Farm shop with restaurant close by - really nice food including cooked breakfasts. Facilities very clean.

Great Location poor facilities

Kendal Caravan Club Site
This is a great site , one of my favourites. the walks from site are splendid. Sizergh castle and Levens Hall are within walking distance and are spectacular places to visit. Walks around the site and river are attractive. Ask the Warden for an information sheet on the Gunpowder works, ruins of which cover the site; fascinating. The only downsides are the lack of a shop on site; The internet access is abysmal and don't expect the plug in TV to work further up the site. This includes all the serviced pitches. You may think you have paid for this facility but you will be told in no uncertain terms that you have not, so hard luck. Dogs off leads and barking are a common problem, never addressed. Yes the approach road is dreadful but you're missing a treat if you let that put you off.

Dark

Kendal Caravan Club Site
Sorry if repeating what others have said. It’s a pretty site, very rural but not far from M6. Because it’s set in beautiful ancient NT woods it is dark, that said if you walk along the river to Kendal you’re soon out of the woods and in open countryside, it’s a lovely walk but it is over 3 miles each way. The farm shop and cafe is close by and looked lovely but didn’t use, same for the pub. If you’re like us, in a motorhome, it’s bit remote, no bus service, 2 nights was enough.
