New van new site

Tried a no facilities site for the first time and we were delighted we picked this site. Very quite and peaceful. Some great walks near by. Cogra moss a hidden gem don't miss it.  Also try the drive past loweswater and over honister pass through borrowdale to Keswick . You won't forget it!

Easter and places spare due to bad manners by Members

We have just started after a 10 year break. This was our first outing. On arrival we were informed tea as we had been honest about no awning there was only choice of 3 pitches.  What really hurt was that about 12 bookings did not turn up. Not only annoying to us because of the above but also very bad manners as other Members were unable to book over a Holiday weekend. Change the rules please.

Favourite Site

This must be our favourite site on the network. Quiet, attractive, wonderful part of the Lakes. Whatever the weather it's a beautiful, dramatic, ever changing place to be. If I could only ever stay on one caravan site again it would be this one because of it's location.

excellent, made our holiday

rookies to new caravanning our last was in the days of gas only and no confusing heating and electrics. However after a disastrous start, my wife had a minor accident, my fault !!.Several members rallied round to help connect up and settle us in.We shall remain ever grateful to all of them. Then came the awning and here the Warden followed on from the evening before when his wife greeted us with such friendliness and help and got it erected within a few minutes yet more unsolicited help and advice. All this began to get the holiday off to an excellent stay Well done Warden and wife and to all the help and advice from caravan club members

Delightful & quiet

Took a chance on getting a pitch un-booked in early early August - no problem.   Stayed a couple of nights, relishing the peacefulness and good weather! The wardens were wonderful, ever so helpful and cheery.  Also has the bonus of no toilets, meaning there is at least a chance in high season of finding a pitch!

Disappointing

We booked a week at Dockray Meadow earlier this year & was so looking forward to a relaxing holiday in the lakes, however for some reason we didn't quite take to this site. The wardens were lovely, the site was immaculately clean & tidy, as are all the Caravan Club sites but we didn't find it to be the "hidden gem" as described in the write up. We found the pitches to be very short. After giving up on an attempt to pitch up on one plot, we eventually managed to fit on a pitch across the far side of the site, but only just! We only have a single axle caravan so we were surprised at the difficulty in finding a plot big enough to take our caravan. It is definitely imperative to select your pitch wisely on this site as you can feel a little hemmed in on certain pitches, I think this may have been our mistake & probably the reason for not enjoying the site as much as others we have stayed on. Cockermouth is a lovely town, as is Maryport, definitely worth a visit.

Out of this world

A pleasant site, ideal for some R&R away from everything.  The Warden’s were very welcoming. Great place to explore The Lakes from and a definite one on the list to return to.

A hidden treasure

Very helpful wardens on arrival. Pitches well spaced and maintained. Plenty to see within reasonable driving distance. A must visit site for anyone touring this region. Would go back to use site anytime. TV booster use required ( so what) to keep up with weather reports.

Far from madding crowd...

Real getaway from it all - no mobile phone signal, no wi-fi. But you can plug your tv into the club's ubiquitous booster system. Surrounded by hills, it's a taste of the Lake District, being on its back doorstep. No loo block restricts the sort of 'vanners it attracts - a plus point for many!  Very few really level pitches, so levelling blocks needed. Wardens friendly, a laid-back site with no barriers, swipe cards, keys or access codes to remember.
