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.

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.

Short break.

Kendal Caravan Club Site
This CAMC site maintains the high standard you'd expect. Access is clearly described but is down quite a long single file drive. Although it's quite a big site it's separated into small groups of pitches so feels secluded. The walk across fields to Sizergh Castle is well marked and passes a high quality farm shop. The walk along the river into Kendal is longer but very pleasant. There's a site TV aerial feed, but it's not maintained so not all pitches actually work. ( Our own aerial picked up a signal.)

Wonderful! Apart from the road up to the site.

Kendal Caravan Club Site
We are regulars at the Kendal site and have stayed on many of the pitches over the last few years. As with all CMHC sites, it is well-kept and facilities are spotlessly clean. It's in a beautiful wooded location, shaded in many parts however this has never been an issue for us as the sun doesn't shine a lot in the Lake District anyway! The walks from the site are stunning if you like woodland and wildlife. There is also a river adjacent to the site which provides stunning views and adds peace and tranquility. The walk to the farm shop is lovely and also nearby is the Strickland Arms which has a nice beer garden and does decent food. This time we visited Leighton Moss RSBP which was a lovely walk, and also the Foulshaw Moss Nature reserve, both worth visiting if you enjoy birds and wildlife. Arnside and Silverdale are worth a visit (the chippy in Arnside takes some beating) and it's not far to drive up to Windermere if you want to battle with the tourists. The only issue I would like to raise is not the fault of the site at all, but I feel I should warn people about the terrible condition of the road leading to the caravan site. There are some serious potholes which could really damage your caravan - please beware! I wonder if the CMHC could contact the council or whoever owns the road to get it repaired?
