Little gem

We stayed for 2 nights in October so that we could visit friends in Maryport. Booking over the phone was casual, so I had an idea what to expect on arrival. We were told how to get through the locked gates and found this to be perfectly straightforward. On arrival Anne was extremely friendly and helpful to us, advising on best location as the ground was quite soft. She also loaned us her bread boards to avoid sinking. The site is all grass set within the grounds of an old mansion where only part of the building remains. It is surrounded by trees and next to the Ellen river, both of which do an excellent job of masking any traffic noise. The site is a 5 minute walk to the centre of town, (we can highly recommend the lifeboat bar and restaurant for excellent pub grub and Her Citi for lunch or coffee and cake. Sluice could be indicated more clearly as it is tucked in behind the Lodge house which has nothing to do with the site. It’s not fancy, there are no signs with lots of rules, they clearly assume you will be sensible and know what you’re doing, which we rather like! Perfect location to meander round Maryport which has enough to offer the visitor a couple of days activities.

Lovely couple of nights spent here.

We decided on Thursday night that we would head away for the weekend and wanted somewhere within 2 hours of home, did the usal checks and best forecast was Maryport so thats how we ended up here. I called to make the booking and Eileen was very friendly and helpful during the call, she told me she might not be there when I arrive and would leave a key. Unfortunately I couldn't find it and had to knock the house door which I now know isn't Eileen's. Eileen arrived with in 5 mins and due to the wet week we've had she recommended we stay on the drive as no one else was booked in, this wasn't and issue. The site it's self is basic but lovely at the same time and Ideal for walking into town or the coast path. After chatting to Eileen on the day of our departure she mentioned they had toyed with the idea of adding showers and toilet, in my opinion this would spoil the site and the price would have to goo up. In my opinion £8.50 a night with hook up on the edge of town can't be beat.

Dogs Running Wild

We really liked this site but it was spoilt for one reason......dogs running wild. The site manager has 3 large dogs that roam the site when she is around. They are never on a lead. A caravan arrived with 4 little dogs that were allowed to roam the entire site and on one occasion one of them chose to leave me a present....I was NOT happy. I complained to the site manager who coughed and spluttered because she knew she could not enforce the club rule because her own dogs run around off the lead. Then another van arrived with a dog which was also allowed to run around the site. This meant we had 8 dogs roaming the site. The 4 little dogs were just plain horrid, barking at everything and everyone for no reason without any control from the owners. Things then became totally unacceptable when a motorhome arrived next to the caravan with 4 dogs. It was occupied by two people probably in their 70's. One day the dogs started on the older couple as they returned from a walk. The old lady absolutely freaked and I mean freaked and was clearly very distressed! What is it about dog owners? Why can't they enforce a simple club rule? Why is it acceptable for dogs to terrorise old people? Why is acceptable for dogs to leave you a present outside your awning? Would it be OK for me to creep out one night and defecate outside an offending caravan/motorhome? The answer to that is clearly 'NO'! So why is it that the answer to my other questions is 'YES'? I have complained to the club.

A Hidden Gem

This is a beautiful site, hidden in the grounds of a faded country estate. The site is located in a walled garden, adjacent to a Pele tower. It is rather basic at present, but electric hook ups are planned. The grounds are lovely and it was a pleasure to walk our dog through the woods and along the river. Luckily I like the smell of wild garlic. The manager, Miss Eileen Boyle, is very pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable about the estate. There is a bit of noise from the nearby road and occasionally from the nearby railway line, but only minor and you probably won't notice it above the birdsong. We'll definitely return.

Netherhall Estate

I have to admit that there is some road noise from the very busy A596 to Carlisle road affecting this CL though less so at the weekends. However, unless you are a very light sleeper this is a minor inconvenience when weighed against the overall merits of the site. It is huge, dry, interesting and convenient for the town and seashore. The warden is helpful and knowledgeable and at £5.00 per night this has to be the best deal in CL land. The venue lends itself to a family get together as there is ample space for children of all ages and family pets to have a good time together without spoiling the peace for other campers. And no grass clippings! Absolutely brilliant - you must give it a try.

Very convenient for Maryport with a fascinating history.

The site is in a semi-urban setting set in the grounds and next to the last remaining part of what was Nertherhall House. There is good easy access to the pitches down gravelled tracks, the pitches themselves on on flat well maintained and drained grass surrounded by trees that when in leaf would provide good screening. The site is well placed to visit Maryport. The site manager is particularly helpful and friendly with extensive knowledge with regards to the very interesting history of Netherhall.
