Peace & quiet

We stayed at Sweethope Lough for 4 nights in mid September 2012. The site is fairly isolated but it is well set up with long terraced hardstandings, electric hookup and a dedicated water point to each pitch. No awnings are permitted, probably due to the narrow pitches and the boggy nature of the grass dividing strips between pitches. Views across the lakes from the pitch are stunning whatever the weather. There are short walks around the two site lakes although, during our visit, the fishery & boating businesses were closed, so it was very quiet. Great Wanney Crags are close by where you may encounter some ”crag rats” attempting some quirkily names climbs such as Nosey Parker, Broken Wing & Willing to Sin! Some of the footpaths in this particular area were a bit of a quagmire giving us wet trousers, socks & boots! The nearest shops appeared to be the hotel/filling station at Knowesgate on the A696 crossroads which is probably 3.5 miles away. We didn’t get to see the site manager at all, so we left our site fees in the fishery “returns” box at the entrance building.
