We were excited at booking a CL in the middle of the beautiful Cumbrian fells. However, the experience wasn't what we had expected. The CL is situated just above the farm yard on a patch of waste ground with no outlook whatsoever, and there was generally a strong smell of manure being in such close proximity to the farm yard (and I was raised on a farm). It was absolutely impossible to pitch our twin axle caravan on the proposed site (although we had informed them of its size on booking) and I am used to used to reversing tractors and trailers. There was also old concrete/tarmac around the pitch which would have made pitching an awning impossible. On walking to the farm house to speak to the owners, I was bitten on the hand by one of the many farm dogs roaming loose (not great for our little children), but this was vehemently denied by the farmer's wife (who was no where to be seen, but who we contacted by email later).
There were also caravans pitched on the side of the farm drive (exceeding the limit of five per cl).
I had trouble getting off the site due to the lack of space and off we went. This left us in a tricky situation as we had four young children, had travelled from South Wales, and were here for two weeks. We were fortunate to get a pitch on another site.
In all, a disaster of a cl which shouldn't be in existence. Those who have enjoyed the site are welcome to it...
