It's the third time on this site and we have grown to love it a little more each time. It's a little remote but lovely and peaceful in a delightful area not far from the pretty little town of Grange over Sands.
The site offers a small number pitches with beautiful views over the bay (although we have never been able to get on one of these, you have to get lucky I suppose), some grass pitches and some which are hardstanding. Our pitch was a little sloping but nothing we couldn't deal with, it backed onto a small area of woodland which was pretty and, at the time we stayed, full of blackberries which we helped ourselves to and made some jam! The wardens were friendly when we booked in however we didn't have any other contact as it was not needed.
The COVID regulations were clearly explained and the wrist band system worked well. The toilet/shower block was immaculately clean and we were grateful that these were open (unlike on many other sites!). The only small gripe I had was that there were notices in all the toilet cubicles threatening to shut the block 'with immediate effect' if any were left with 'waste' - I agree that the toilets should be left clean however they were worded quite aggressively and could have at least included a please and thank you or have a more pleasant tone we thought! Sounds quite petty but I think it's important to word notices carefully and be more supportive than threatening.
We love the area, Grange is picturesque - we recommend a walk down the prom and an ice cream at the cafe at the end. The walk from Grange over Hamps Fell to the hospice and down to Cartmel is fantastic with stunning views, and Cartmel is lovely to visit. We like Kendal for shopping, Booths supermarket in Milnthorpe, Arnside for a walk down the beach and the chippy there is a must (ring to place your order and then eat on the little pier watching the sun go down). It's a bit of a walk from the site to the nearest town, Grange, down the road but great for cycling. The nearby Woodlands Hotel is the only place nearby, but has a nice bar and you can get pub food, nothing special but absolutely fine.
We will definitely be going back to this site as it's convenient for us, it's very pleasant and we love the area. I just wish there were more fully serviced pitches as we never seem to be able to get one!
