Lovely site if a little isolated. Penrith & Keswick circa 7-8 miles away. Friendly & helpful staff when questioned about what roads should be avoided en rte to Coniston. Cocklakes Farm Shop is a must for quality & exceptional value meats, there is also a tea room there but we didn't use it. Parking is directly off the A66 up an incline but adequate parking for motorhomes. Well recommended if you have alternative transport or just want to 'chill'..... Adjacent activity centre has quad bikes & pony trekking amongst other things.
