On The Right Track Wardens

We telephoned to say we were in a major traffic jam on the M74 but Jane and Andrew's only concern was for us, we arrived and were greeted to a very warm welcome and were told just to settle in and let them know what pitch we were on the next day.  Jane and Andrew are fantastic and so is the location, we much prefer North Lakes as they are not so commercialised but still have wonderful views.  Another site we will be rushing back to.  See you soon.

May tour 4

One of the best sites in Cumbria, quiet clean and welcoming, the wardens are so friendly and helpful. Been here 3 times now and will certainly be back. Red squirrels in the trees if you are lucky enough to see them, a small stream runs on the one side of the site.This site is very handy for visits to Buttermere etc. A little gem for sure.   Be back soon.

The Quiet Hidden gem

We have just come home from Dockray Meadow after a 4 Day break and had to write in to praise the efforts the wardens have put in. The site was immaculately maintained with a well mown and enclosed dog walking area, pitches were clean and weed free, the information centre was well stocked with local information with additional information available from the Wardens office i.e. Walking route etc. For the Dogs and Walkers in general there are routes out from the site such as the walk around Cogra Moss which takes about 1.5hrs at a steady pace( this is signed as impassable at the moment due to tree falls but we found it passable with a bit of clambering!) The site is in a great position for the North West lakes with easy access to Lowes water, Crummock water, Buttermere and Ennerdale. All in all if you like peace and quiet and walking this is a Great Site not to be missed. And for those who prefer towns etc. Keswick and Ambleside are only 30mins and 45mins away or you can try the coastal towns of Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport. All in all a great site which we will be returning to and I can highly recommend

Lovely stay!

A lovely peaceful site surrounded by fields and a water stream.  No traffic noise just the sound of horses, birds and sheep. We were fortunate to see a Red squirrel ! The pitches are spaced out well and not too close together. We were at the top end of the site wherr there is a large grass area for the kids to play. Wardens were very helpful and friendly. Will definately be returning.

Perfect

Surprised how idyllic this site is. Peaceful, quiet, lovely scenery in an excellent spot. Well looked after by very friendly wardens. Pitches well laid out, great dog walking area, small, but enclosed so that you can let your dog off the lead. Our first visit to this part of the Lakes and is definitely now one of our favourites, we will be back.

A suprisingly good site

Stayed here at Easter 2015 and was very pleasantly surprised by the site. Despite being on the very edge of the National Park the site had a fantastic backdrop of a large hill. Not near any heavily trafficked road and the site was idyllically peaceful, generally with only the sound of the sheep and the birds in the background. Although it was busy and we did not get a choice of pitches they are all well-spaced out and the one we were allocated was in a decent spot in the top field which got the evening sun. Very well maintained and staff very friendly and helpful. Walked and cycled to nearby lakes so did not have to take the car out. Places to eat out in the area are too far/on busy roads to walk or cycle, but the reviews I read in the on-site review book rated some of them quite well. Definitely the “hidden gem” as another reviewer had called it.

Peace perfect peace

We love this site been for last eight Easter breaks perfect for leaving your car and walking from site Cogra Moss is beautiful and just a pleasant 35min walk away. Wardens very welcoming and considering site was only opened a few weeks earlier they have done a great job of getting ready for new season well done to them. Some Moron had driven right across a grassed areas between pitches when the ground was soft what a mess but after a couple of hours of attention from the wardens it was repaired seeded and looking good. Nothing but praise for this site we will be back next Easter Go visit you will not be disappointed this time of year the baby lambs are wonderful to watch right out of your caravan window.

Lovely quiet site

Lovely peaceful site in beautiful surroundings. There is no toilet block but we chose it for that reason, reckoning that even over the Easter weekend, the lack of that facility might deter too many families with children. We were not disappointed. Very friendly and helpful warden. Not fare from the North Lakes and a short drive to the coast. Will definitely come back
