On our way to Scotland

We only stayed for one night but will make an effort to return to stay a little longer. Beautiful all round views with great access to the Lake District and what a lovely warm welcome from Mrs Clarke Just a couple of words of warning, make sure you have blocks and ramps as the pitches are sloping and access can be difficult / slippery when it’s been raining

A hidden gem

What a wee gem of a site. The welcome from Mrs Clark couldn't have been better. She is a wonderful person for whom nothing is too much trouble. We were put in the yard opposite the site - we were only staying one night en route from Scotland to South Wales, so it was perfectly fine. The toilet was very clean but definitely rustic! We thought this CL was beautiful.

Enjoyable 3 week stay - but

This CL is in a really quiet part of south Cumbria on the outskirts of the Lake District National Park - very tidy - the grass is cut every week - a lot of the pitches are sloping - and plenty of room. Cassette toilet emptying is a bit quirky - down the WC toilet bowl and grey waste down a grid in the street - very different. Excellent location for exploring the South Lakes " the best part of the Lake District". Our stay was spoiled on the last weekend - there were 9 outfits and 11 dogs on site - 6 of the 11 were roaming free and none of them knew their names - so were out of control. Oh - nearly forgot, - a garage that fills Safefill Bottles about a mile away. We will not be returning as i believe more than 5 outfits occurs quite often. John and Carole

Overcrowding

I would love to give this site 5 stars but there was more than 5 vans on this site as per previous review.

Mixed feelings

We were booked in to stay on this site over the early May Bank holiday. When we arrived on the Friday there were four vans already on site, but the owner said that there had been some confusion and she thought some people might arrive who had not sent their deposit but didn't confirm how many. This is a lovely site in a nice setting and the field is relatively large. It does undulate though and there are limited pitches which provide level ground which does restrict where you can site the van. Our worries that there may be some significant noise from the nearby M6 was ill founded. Having pitched up we became concerned when during the rest of the afternoon two motorhomes and a caravan arrived and set up as well. Across from the entrance to the site, the owner has a barn with a yard in front which had one van on it when we arrived, but two motorhomes and a caravan also pitched up in this area the next day. These additional vans use the same water, shower and chemical disposal facilities as the CL. despite the web site saying their use is exclusive to the CL. The next day one of the motorhomes left the CL but another one took its place. Whilst we appreciate it was a Bank Holiday weekend, we purposefully choose to stay on CL sites with their 5 van limit. It is our suspicion that this was not a ‘one off’ event and that it could be repeated at other times of the year so if you are intending to stay on this site please be aware.

Lovely site

We stayed at Kaker Mill farm for a kite festival that we attended in May; what a gem of a site. Mrs Clarke is welcoming, giving all the pertinant information needed. We stayed for 5 nights and have booked to stay again at the end of October for our kiting end of season bash! Mr and Mrs B Cooper

NOT FOR MOTORHOMES

The CL site itself is very nice but you will not be on it if you are in a motorhome. It seems we tear up the grass but cars pulling large caravans don't. Instead you are diverted to a yard on the opposite side of the road. The sheds in this yard appear to be used by other businesses and they arrived to open these and load a van at 7am including trying out a petrol strimmer. Not for me.

Helpful owner

We only stayed one night as a stopover on our way home to Scotland. Mrs Clarke had forewarned us in a phone call that the site had suffered a lot of rain and suggested that we use another part of her land to park our motorhome on as this was basically hardstanding. This was really helpful advice: our pitch was flat and still had access to an electrical hook up and the shower and toilet facilities. We were very happy with the site as a stopover as it's pretty close to the M6 with a filling station nearby.

Difficult to review.

I really want to give this cl full marks but it impossible... the location is lovely and the elderly lady that lives on the site is as friendly as anyone can be... but unfortunately the field was a bog. The field has the biggest slope that we have seen on a cl so far which with the wetness made it very tricky to maneuver, we had to park our van about 10 feet away from another just to find a level spot. I know this site would be an absolute gem in the summer but because of the unusual amount of rain it was nearly unusable. It is probably unkind to review this site after so much rain but its important for other members to know that without my Range Rover I don't think I could of got to my pitch. To cut a long story short this site would be right up there in the summer but be careful after rain - and take those ramps.

A return visit

Returned to this site which we love - beautiful views a warm friendly welcome and close enough to Kendal to visit the family. We arrived on Good Friday and Mrs Clarke brought round home made meringues to each van as an "Easter Egg"! A lovely welcome and we will return. There is an excellent shower room built into the garage, although the toilet in a little shed is a bit more rustic, but always clean.
