Lovely Site

We were welcomed by the lovely wardens on arrival and although we didn’t book a service pitch in advance having taken a drive around the site we felt the available standard pitches that were left were a little closed in. Therefore we paid the extra and stayed on a service pitch for a week which in my opinion felt we had more space around us. The dog walk at the the top of the site goes on for 1.5 miles and was ideal for out mutts. We didn’t use the toilets etc as we didn’t need too so won’t comment. The site is excellently situated for endless walking and only 5 miles from Ulswater. We weren’t disturbed by the clay shooting ground at all and probably heard about 10 shots all week. Overall a cracking site and we will surely return if visiting the lakes again.

Lovely site shame about a thoughtless dog owner

We visit Troutbeck as often as we can we love the site and there is so much to do and see in the area. On this occasion we were using Troutbeck as a transit point as we were travelling down from Scotland on our way to Dorset. Whilst at the site we met friends and who live in the area and went out for dinner in the evening. Our visit was partly spoilt because of a thoughtless lazy dog owner who had left a plastic bag full of dog mess in the grass at the back of our overnight pitch. Had my partner not seen the bag and it's contents I would have walked on it. We were very angry that anyone would just toss this waste onto the grass in this fashion, not nice. We reported the matter to the warden and she said told us that it is not an isolated incident, she apologised on behalf of the club. She needn't have apologised on the clubs behalf the fault lays clearly with the dog owner who was to lazy to take the waste to the bin. We know that there are many responsible dog owners in the club who enjoy using the sites and amenities and take care to clean up after their pooch. It would appear however that there are others who do not take such care which is a great shame.

Good location for Ullswater with a warm welcome

Great welcome from the team for the busy May bank holiday. The site was pretty packed with lots of families but we found a nice pitch on the edge next to the brook. Facilities were excellent and spotlessly clean. We valued having a chance to do our washing in super large machines and dryers since the weather had been really wet. It's well located for cycling. The site is very family orientated and and on balance we'd probably prefer something smaller and quieter. But it's a great location with lovely views.

Be aware of the shooting noise from next door.

Fabulous site in every way except my dogs were scared by the noise of the clay pigeon shooting next door. Had hoped that staying on a Sunday it would not be taking place but I was wrong. If that is not an issue for you then everything else is excellent for dogs with miles of walking with no sheep.

Overnight stop

Cant say too much about this site as we arrived later than expected, and left reasonably early, but , first impressions were lovely, with wide ope skies, and lots of space on pitches. The facilities were lovely and warm. WE will not hesitate to use this site again.....Well Done

Easter @ Troutbeck

First time visiting this site, friendly check in, drove round to look at pitches and took pitch 85 which was slightly away from the main body of the site with a great view of glencartha. Pitch sizes were massive, grassed area in front was great for our pooch. Toilet blocks both immaculately clean and newly refurbished. One shut 10.30-12 other 2.30-4. Quite a large site but our daughter made lots of friends at the park and paddling in the stream. Wardens were friendly and maintained the park well. A good location to visit Ullswater and Aira Force. Recommend the walk from Glenridding to Horton and boat back.. beautiful 6.5 miles.Really enjoyed our visit here. Would have been even better if.. (i) 5th shower in toilet blocks had hooks. (ii) Slight drain wiff in Ladies toilets sometines at entrance was looked at (iii) Noisey in middle area when full (iv) Local Information lacks suggested walks which have to be bought, £2.90 for five photocopies was a little steep.

Our first visit since the refurb.

It remains one of our favourite sites. We were lucky enough to get a pitch in our favourite area of the site, with an uninterrupted view of Blencathra in all its glory. It’s always beautiful, but this time, with varying amounts of snow, it was wow! This is a lovely, open site with a spacious feeling. The new hard standing pitches on the old grass pitches are a wise move. The refurbished loo blocks are perfectly clean and well looked after by the wardens, but I have to say they were a bit of a disappointment. They used to have underfloor heating, a real luxury, now gone. The old huge showers have now gone. However the new ones are standard club showers, so can’t complain. There is one extra shower – the world’s smallest shower! You have to stand diagonally to be able to bend down to wash feet. Also, no shelf/seat. The loos are all together now, no problems there, and there is loads of space, but not even a hook or a shelf to put things on and you have to resort to putting coats, towels and wash bags on the floor while washing hands. The wardens were all very pleasant and professional and when the electrics went off on our pitch they were very quick to help us out. We can’t wait to return.

Lovely, peaceful site

Just back from a 4 night stay at this site, thoroughly enjoyed staying here. Lovely views. Pitches, hardstanding were wide and level.Toilet block was immaculate. TV reception was excellent using a cable extension which plugs into the back of the electric point. Mobile signal wasn't great for the network we used EE but still managed to get online with it and make phone calls from inside and outside our caravan. Plenty to do and see in this beautiful part of England.. Ate at the Horse and Farrier in nearby Threlkeld, super food, reasonable prices and excellent service. The site has good access from major routes and the access to the site itself is very easy. Highly recommended.

Beautiful views from this site

Recommended. A great site with brand new shower blocks, a large activity room and a dog walk which leads to walks through the woods of Matterdale. Beautiful views of Blencathra and Skiddaw from some of the pitches. The site is lovely, flat and well laid out. The wardens work hard and keep the site nice. You can get out and about in the car to many places in the Lakes. We went over Christmas and New Year which cost £33 per night which is expensive.

Good value

Recently refurbished site and a great job they have done. Facilities, as you would expect, are first class. Shower blocks are really warm with plenty of hot water. Great 4G signal and TV signal was vary good. We stayed on a fully serviced pitch which gave easy access to the dog walk (not that we have a dog) and a large forest walk with onward access to further footpaths. I can imagine that the activity centre next door can get a little noisy by day but it was very quiet during our stay. The wardens are very helpful with a good sense of humour! Our caravan is over 8mtrs long and was easily accommodated, the access road is first class with easy access from the A66. This is an excellent site which we highly recommend.
