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.

We received a very friendly welcome and were shown to our pitch promptly. While close to the road (A6) the site is screened from the road by the terrain so no road noise. Well kept grassed areas. The facilities block was clean and adequate. The gents had 2 showers and 2 toilets - not enough if the site is busy. It is showing its age a bit and an upfit aught to be planned in the next 12-18 months.
Having said that I would not hesitate to visit again - it's a super site. Well positioned for Kendal / Windermere.

Lovely clean site in a great location, close to Kendal town centre, which has a good selection of shops, our children enjoyed the play area & the dog walk was nice, we had a very warm welcome which was much appreciated after an extremely long drive! I've only marked it down slightly on the facilities as the showers, although very clean were extremely small & were busy in the mornings and often had a queue.

Site shop small so does not carry much stock except ice cream and toilet chemicals, not much else but Morrisons and Aldi within easy distance so not an issue not to have fully stocked site shop. Pitches good size and spaced out enough not to feel crowded by neighbouring caravans, tents or motorhomes, some pitches sloping a bit but easily rectified with levelling blocks. Main lakes within easy driving distance and local town of Kendal very nice town centre and kept nice and tidy with beautiful flowers dotted around in baskets adding to the attractiveness of the town centre. Site very pleasant and country views and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, even had lazy days sitting outside our motorhome watching the world go by, very unusual for us and we were treated to the site of lots of sparrows and other birds feeding on the bird feeders which were maintained by the site management, thoroughly recommend site as a nice place to stay, quiet but pub nearby which serves good basic pub food plus excellent chip shop just across road from pub, all making the site and area a good place to be for holidays.
