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.

This is a quiet site and while the A6 passes the entrance there wasn't any appreciable traffic noise. Easy to find being only a few miles off the M6 so would make an ideal layover stop if you're travelling any distance up/down the country.
The toilets and showers are kept clean and tidy but in truth could do with a bit of an upgrade to bring them in line with the very best sites.
The site provided a list of eateries both in the town and aroundabout the local area. There's a Morrison's and Aldi less than a mile away so provision shopping wasn't a problem.
If you're using a Garmin Satnav with the clubs POI file to locate this site the actual entrance is another 150m past where the Satnav thinks it is as you head out of Kendal. Turn where instructed and you'll head up someone's driveway.
Would I use the site again? Yes to that.

Very friendly welcome, even though it was the end of the season and I was only staying one night. Beautifully cut green grass. Helpful suggestions for tent location facing a nice view. Bricks available for my stove and pans. I was very pleased to have instructions for a walk by the River Mint included with the camp information; just what I needed after a long drive. The weather was good (it only rained at night).
