The Best Site in Cumbria

In our opinion this site is one of the best ones we have visited in the whole network, but definately the best in Cumbria. The location is quiet and yet near enough to cockermouth or Keswick if you wish to visit. The Wardens are extremely friendly and helpful and we have visited here before and we look forward to visiting again. They are very hard working and are constantly making little improvements to the site. The site now has a wifi booster, (which could be a bonus, depending on how much you want to get away from it all), which is located in the information area and this is a nice dry, large area to deal with your urgent emails etc while you're away. Some of the pitches are not completely flat, but if you're prepared with ramps this isn't an issue. There is a lovely stream running by the side of the site and we purposely choose a pitch near to the stream so that we can hear it babbling through the night as it is very soothing and sends us to the land of sleep every night. I would hesitate to recommend you to visit this site as self preservation, as if I do recommend it I'm at the risk of the site being fully booked the next time I want to stay!

THE QUIET SITE

Just spent eight nights here, very peaceful, well kept site with nice friendly wardens. Good roads to take you to coast or mountains or just so relaxing staying on site.. good walks starting from Cogra Moss. Cockermouth well worth a visit for shops and eating places.

Peaceful place

We had a couple of days here in June the site is improved since our last stay a couple of years ago a lot of the pitches have been improved making it easier for bigger units to pitch. The wardens are very good and welcoming and keep the facility points spotless despite very poor weather and the flowers are lovely. The lack of toilet block no probs we always use our own the phone signal is better too

Perfect club site

We loved it here. Quiet - superb location - excellent and very helpful couple running the site. We never use a toilet block so no loss to us. We will be back

No toilet block

We should have read the facilities guide before we booked! Not pleasant to empty the Thetford.. Other that that I felt this site just wasn't up to the usual CAMC high standard. Apart from the Toilet block, the TV signal was terrible - On our Power Post the TV point didn't work so we used the one next door and we got 6 channels but they kept dropping out. The phone signal is also very bad - This site needs WIFI (And a toilet block) as a matter of priority in my opinion. The area is stunning, although the closest village is a very long way away - too far to just walk to. There is a dog area, but it is tiny - just enough for the toilet. Local dog walks involve going through the neighbouring farmers field and he was a little grumpy! Even though our dog was on a lead (As he always is) he still felt the need to tell us to keep him on a lead. This may suit 'off grid' style caravaners - but we prefer a few more home comforts - and the toilet block is a clincher for us. The staff are LOVELY and very helpful as ever. We moved from here to Coniston Coppice and IMHO that is 100% better than this site.

Perfect!

Just returned from a long weekend stay here. Directions to the site were good, mostly A roads with a short section of narrowish road. Welcome from the wardens was warm and friendly. They gave me a choice of three pitches due to the size of my outfit- any would have been fine. Unusually for a non facilities site, there were a number of families with young children who were all having a great time amusing themselves as little ones do. They were a pleasure to watch. The site was beautifully kept by the two wardens with not a blade of grass out of place. The best part for me was the fenced dog walk where my two pups could practice their recall skills in safety! At about 2 hours from home, definitely a site I would use again.

Good for get away for peace and quiet in the country.

Peace and quiet in less busy part of Lake District. Good for walking and cycling and easy access to places by car for those less able to walk far. Good views of surrounding hills and reports of Red Squirrels visiting the site but not unfortunately during our recent visit end April 2017.
