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.

Our first ever club site

This was our first visit to a club site since joining last year 2019. Due to the situation of 2020 and Covid we have not had any holidays this year and in the past we have always gone abroad On arriving at Kendal site we found a warm welcome and a charming wooded site. Our pitch was private which makes it easier with a dog. The toilet facilities where spotless and we did not have to queue to long due to the Covid rules which most followed without question. the odd moaner was soon put in place by the sensible members. The walks along the river are stunning and both myself and the dog enjoyed them however the path is rough which does mean those with reduced mobility like my wife cant enjoy any part of them. A walk or cycle up the local farm shop for coffee or a trip under the main road tunnel to the pub is well worth it has both provide excellent food. The national trust site under the tunnel is also worth a visit. Overall we were very pleased with our visit to our first club site

A peaceful break

Had a 3 day break at Kendal. It’s a woodland site with many cul-de-sacs for between 1 and 6 units, giving a level of privacy. Campsite delivers a lovely ambience ( especially when the sun shined) and is kept clean and sanitised in the public areas. Only issue is location of site. Bus stop is available but is 20m walk away. Nearest pub is also 20m walk away. If you have a car, then this site is ideal

First visit

We visited the Kendal site as part of our trip to the lakes, in August. We found the site easily, and queued for registration. . This site has lots of different bays for pitching, and although extensive, the Caravan Club approach of “find your own pitch “ and a one way route mainly, saw many unit's passing us in the waiting queue, going back to previously discounted pitches for a second circuit. Site is convenient safe and pretty, even though it is wooded. Facilities are good, and staff more so. Numbers in facilities were better, with yet another band system change. We will use again.

Not our favourite type of site

This is really down to personal preferences so not a criticism of the site or wardens. Although it’s called Kendal caravan site it’s located miles from town in the middle of a heavily wooded area. Therefore sunbathing, if it ever makes an appearance is a hit or a miss. You really need to plan ahead if you want to stay here and make sure you have all your supplies beforehand or else pack everything away (motorhomes) and drive to town. The toilet facilities were spotless and the wardens polite and friendly.

Fabulous stay

It was my first visit to this site. I was a single traveller with my dog. Felt very safe the whole time. Plenty of hot water for showers which are always immaculately clean as are the toilets and wash room facilities. Close to Kendal for amenities and essentials. Great base to explore the lakes. The beautiful river Kent runs alongside the site but was running very fast due to the rain. You can hear the owls at night. Excellently laid out with single secluded spots to several pitches in blades of their own. All electric hook up. The staff were meticulous in cleanliness, even a person walking about with a leaf blower daily keeping the road surfaces clear of slippery leaves and debris. All in all a fab stay and would definitely recommend a visit. Great!
