Welcomed by Mr Taylforth who ensured we could fill up our motor home with fresh water. He has a very long hosepipe which made this very easy. We had our pick of the 3 hardstandings, all with electric hookup which worked perfectly. The hard standing was very solid and despite 2 nights of heavy rain our classic and very heavy camper did not sink one bit. Views from our pitch were of fields of sheep, Lakeland fells and picturesque greenery. Travelling from the south we used the route via Newby Bridge recommended by another review and found this route straightforward and a pleasant drive in. Closeness to Hawkshead is superb with options of road or permissive path and it takes about 10 minutes to walk into the village. There is also the option via the permissive path to join another path to Ambleside which is signed as 6 miles. Overall a perfect place to use as a base at a very reasonable price. We will return.
