Good for families

Beautiful location but need transport for any visits

We stayed here in Aug/ Sep 2020 for 5 nights - one of the few sites in the Lake District with some spaces still available - probably because it is a bit isolated, and you need your car/ transport to visit any attractions (i.e. nothing within walking distance, except neighbouring activity centre). What we liked: a) beautiful location - you really feel the best of the Lake District all around you; b) good layout with generous sized pitches - site feels small & intimate (despite having over 100 pitches); c) close proximity by car to Keswick, Penrith and Ullswater; d) facilities kept very clean; e) enjoyed short evening walks around the site What we disliked: a) cannot walk to any activity directly from the site (apart from neighbouring activity centre) - have to use car to go to any village/ town/ pub etc. We tried walking cross country to the Troutbeck Inn which proved to be a disaster (no clear footpaths; boggy/ marshy ground etc.); b) a little overzealous with the Covid-19 restrictions in toilet blocks - only 2 male & 2 female toilets available in each block, despite being protected any way by enclosed toilet & shower cubicles - but I guess the Club does not want to take any risks (health & safety) We will definitely stay here again, but probably for fewer nights, because we prefer sites where we can leave the campervan parked up and walk directly to local walks, pubs, villages.
