The surrounding area

Our Kendal Club campsite is ideally located for those who enjoy walking and cycling. The hills and peaks of the southern Lake District are on the doorstep while the Yorkshire Dales National Park is around a 30 minute drive away.

Windermere is around nine miles from Kendal campsite. Here you can board a steamer, launch a boat, windsurf or canoe. Back on land the World of Beatrix Potter at Bowness on Windermere offers the chance to meet Peter Rabbit and his friends. On the western shores the National Trust owned woodlands, Claife Heights, is great for walking, cycling and wildlife spotting.

Amblseside at the northern tip of the lake is the starting point for the challenging Wansfell, the Langdales and other mountain. You can also walk to Stock Ghyll Force from the centre of the town. Pretty Grasmere is worth a visit. Treat yourself to some of Sarah Nelson’s famous gingerbread. You’ll find the Grasmere Gingerbread shop tucked away in the corner of the churchyard.

The staff were friendly and helpful,the site mostly needs chocks,toilets and showers old but clean and tidy,the same for the washing up room / laundry room,there is a pleasant walk along the river but you have got to be able to climb through some very tight spaces,you can walk into Kendal along the river or along the road which takes about 45 minutes,Kendal it's self is a very lovely place to visit.especially the chocolate tea room,🍰

This review is for Kendal

We arrived at the site from the North and came straight down the A6, in hindsight I wouldn't do it again as you have to go over Shap, which is quite steep in places. That said we arrived in one piece and received a warm friendly welcome. We were shown to our pitch and even given assistance in reversing our caravan onto the pitch. All went well although there isn't much room for error as the road through the site is very narrow. Some of the pitches are quite un-level so chocks would be a good idea, The site itself was very clean and well kept but we found the showers and toilets to be very basic. The approach road to the site could do with improving as it is full of pot holes, which isn't good when your towing! That said we would still go back. Kendal itself is a lovely little town with plenty to see and the South Lakes are a short drive away. We visited Boness on Windermere and had a lovely day. In addition we also had a day at Lancaster (a castle tour is well worth doing and very good value for money). All in all we had a very enjoyable few days and our only regret was that we could not stay for longer. Certainly wouldn't hesitate in stopping there again if we were in the area. However, I would try and avoid the Shap route.

We stayed here one night on our way south.

This review is for Kendal

We stayed here one night on our way south. We hadn't booked and the owners were most helpful fitting us in on a lovely pitch overlooking the fields, with attendant sheep and lambs! The facilities were very good. It is ideally located for supermarkets just along the road. Although we were only there a short while, we managed a lovely walk across the field and beside the river. We enjoyed our stay and would use the site again on future travels,
