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.

Great Location

What a lovely site with friendly and efficient wardens who worked well together as a great team and although I think that they are all fairly new to this particular site they were all excellent and well organised like they had been together for years This is an excellent site and all though it’s quite a big site you can’t really tell because of the groups of glades which separate all the areas of the site and vans are all located in little groups - it was our first time, really don’t know why we have not been before but we will definitely return as the site itself and the walks by the river were so pretty with some great dog walking in all directions w Kendal is only a few minutes away by car and is worth a visit for the shops and pubs etc Can’t comment about the toilet blocks as we used the shower etc in the van due to the pandemic Mobile Phone signal was good (EE) and we got a good satellite signal (pitch 96)

Lovely, peaceful woodland site

A lovely site just outside Kendal. Nice clean facilities and friendly staff. Satellite TV coverage is non-existent and WiFi service is very poor and needs improvement.

Woodland site

This is a beautiful site, set in woodland. Although quite a large site it doesn’t feel like it as the pitches are set out in small areas. We stayed in April 2021, and the toilet facilities were open and very clean, operating a band system for entry. Although in woodland our pitch had a good amount of sunshine which was lovely and sheltered. There is an excellent farm shop just up the road at Sizergh, about a mile to walk, and we made daily visits for ice cream, hot sausage rolls and other delicious treats. If you go at 3:30 you can see the cows being milked. There is also a vending machine for raw milk. We went on some lovely walks, including along the river towards Kendal, and passed a swan sitting on its nest, just off the path.

Nice site

Situated just south of Kendal this is excellent for visiting Holker Hall, Sizergh castle, Holehird and Levens Hall. The site is in a wood and above the River Kent. Excellent walks on either side of the river. We got a level pitch for the motorhome on flat ground near the river. The toilets were closed. Mobile phone signal was good. Will visit again next year...

Fabulous!

I’m a single caravanner with my elderly dog. I just love this site. Safe and friendly which is why I’ll keep coming back. Set in amongst a beautiful woodland alongside the meandering river Kent, there are multiple glades for people to choose their own spot. There is a one way system in place and it works perfectly well. However, I did see two camper vans turn around pointing in the opposite direction to the one way but this was only so they could sort their grey waste and fresh water filling out. Maybe they should bring longer hoses in the future?. One of the camper vans was approached rather quickly by one of the wardens who pointed out the one way system to them and asked them to turn around, again this was in a polite but assertive manner. He was only doing his job and he did it well. The only one thing is the access so please bear in mind the departure arrival times. These have been put in place for good reason. It’s a single track access road which is about half a mile long with very few passing places especially for bigger outfits. On my last visit I saw at least three outfits leaving late afternoon and also some outfits arriving by eleven. Not good people and it’s not the sites fault as they do everything they can to keep people to the allotted arrival and departure times. Other than the access pitch up and enjoy enjoy enjoy!! Stay safe everyone.
