Pitch up here at this lovely hillside campsite at the gateway to the southern Lake District.
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.
This beautiful campsite feels secluded yet is within walking distance of Kendal itself where you’ll find a selection of shops, a supermarket, two castles, the Abbot Hall Art Gallery as well as the award-winning Quaker Tapestry Exhibition.
The campsite enjoys lovely fell views, offers spacious pitches and has good range of facilities including a laundry, children’s play area as well as toilets and showers.
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.
Some pitches are sloping and chocks are required.

The site is well placed for walkers with Longsleddale valley and Kentmere valley easy walks close by and for more strenuous walks there is the Kentmere fells beyond.
There are several houses and gardens to visit and Beatrix Potter's home and garden at Near Sawrey with a beautiful easy short walk from the house along routes she walked to three tarns, the views are amazing.
If you are a gardener then you must visit Larch Cottage a spectacular garden centre but not like what you would be expecting. They have an immaculate garden which is open only on Sundays with it's own church. Their restaurant has a wisteria bedecked balcony over looking trees and plantings that give an Italian feel, it is fabulous.
Shopping for groceries etc is only a short walk from the site at Morrisons and Aldi who share the complex with Next, Currys, PC World and others.
It was our first time to this site and we agreed we would definitely go back.
Sorry have no comments about local eateries as we did not use any - except Larch Cottage.

Been promising new shower block for years; why the delay! It lets down a good site. Anyone over size 12 would find it virtually impossible to get undressed/dressed. You need to be a contortionist. A great pity as we will be looking at other sites now until shower facilities are updated.
