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.

What a wonderful Weekend Away

This was our first visit to the Kendal site and I cannot give it enough praise. The location is wonderful, nestled in the woods which gives it a wonder atmosphere. Very relaxing and a great location to unwind and recharge your batteries. We only went out walking locally but the river and ruins are great if you are a photographer plus plenty of wild life with birds and squirrels to keep your attention. I would recommend this site to everyone wanting something a bit different from a open flat camp site.

Our favourite Caravan and Motorhome Club site

We have stayed at this site many times over the past few years and will continue to do so. The setting in the ruined cordite factory grounds is magical. With trees all around and separating individual placements, you never feel overlooked or crowded. The facilities are always immaculately clean and the wardens are really helpful. There are brilliant local walks in the area, especially up to Levens Hall and to the surrounding villages. It is also well placed to visit other areas within the Lakes and Yorkshire.

Trials and Tribulations of the access to the site

I feel that I have to share my recent experience with both fellow members and the club team with a hope that some action is taken so to avoid others having to endure the same experience… When arriving at the Kendal site earlier this week just after 13:00 as is requested by the club (note that the latest departure time is 12:00) towing out 7.5 meter caravan we were confronted with a large motor home heading towards us on the single track road leading up to the site who had no intention of making any effort to look for a suitable passing place resulting in a stand off until we “shoe horned” ourselves into a passing place coming perilously close to hitting a grass embankment and eventually passing the motor home with centimetres to spare. The driver of the motor home words to me were “it’s not my problem”. Can’t the club make it clearer through appropriate signage where there is restricted access to the site not to try and leave the site around the time new arrivals are allowed to turn up and secondly surely members must realise this as its made very clear when new arrivals can start to turn up when booking that there is likely to be some congestion?

Great lakes walking stay

This is a lovely peaceful wooded caravan site. Nice friendly wardens and with easy access in and out of the site. Really nice dog walk from site across a wooden bridge then left along the river side where we sat on the river bank and just watched the world go by. We had a drive to Ambleside which was about 25 minutes away from the site and went up Loughrigg fell which the views at the top were amazing. Good site to stay at for visiting different place in the lakes, would definitely stay here again.
