Why stay here ...

Set in National Trust woodland, Kendal Club Campsite 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 Campsite is on the site of a 19thC gunpowder mill.

Kendal Club Campsite 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.

Fantastic Stay

Kendal Club Campsite
What a lovely hidden gem. We were blessed with lovely weather but also had a great pitch in a secluded spot. The walk by the river is gorgeous and the wardens could not have been more friendly or helpful. One point though, on the exit from the site people had dropped dog poo bags, I just cannot understand why decent people would do this, one nearly did a lot of damage to our puppy who had to be taken to the vets for emergency treatment. Again the wardens could not have helped us more. A wonderful stay and we will definitely be going back, but depressing to think that a minority of folk can behave irresponsibly.

A wonderful welcome

Kendal Club Campsite
We arrived to spend just a couple of nights to check out our new vehicle and received a first class welcome from the staff. Our first visit to this site and it did not disappoint, lovely clean facilities, a quiet forest setting with lovely walks around for our dog . The only downside is there is no kids play area, a forest play trail would be good.

Excellent site with some serious downsides

Kendal Club Campsite
A beautiful site with a layout very different from the usual regimented pitches. Friendly, helpful, staff and good facilities. But there are some downsides. Despite being in the ‘silver’ Wi-Fi category, the service was, in fact, hopeless. We (and we were by no means alone) didn’t manage to connect once in ten days, despite drawing the attention of staff to the problem. The TV connections on our EHU were both broken. But far, far, more serious, was the almost total disregard of the 5mph speed limit (even, I’m afraid to say, by members of staff in their electric buggies). Our pitch was adjacent to a site roadway and it was not at all unusual to see vehicles travelling at speeds in excess of 15mph (and on at least three occasions at a speed I calculated to be in excess of 20mph). This pitch (and others like it) would have been extremely dangerous for anyone with children. There are a few ‘sleeping policemen’ on site roads but by no means enough. I have been a Club member for 35 years and this is just about the worst site speeding I have ever seen. The Club really needs to do more to curb this dangerous behaviour.

Magic

Kendal Club Campsite
Yet another visit to Kendal Club Site. As always a warm welcome was at hand on arrival. Within ten minutes we were pitched and unpacking. A wonderful site for a quiet and relaxing stay in a woodland. You can do as much or as little ad you want, knowing that you are only ten minutes from Kendal, for all the things you could need. The old works are visible and plenty of information about it can be found in the information room, or on line. The staff were always at hand for any questions or problems you may have. I had a wee problem and thanks to Jo for sorting it out. Will be back…..

Lovely site

Kendal Club Campsite
Lovely site with pitches set in a wooded hillside, especially beautiful as the bluebells and wild garlic were in bloom when we visited. Nice clean facilities.
