Overview

  • Campsite is located within a National Park

    Site within National Park

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.

Nice quiet site with lots of walks, the retail part only a ten minute walk from site has supermarkets, a further twenty minutes will take you into Kendal with good shopping, pubs etc. The site is well kept but my only concern is that the toilet block needs upgrading. There are only two showers so you may need to wait, and a small area to get dressed in, if I return will shower in van. I would still recommend the site though as good location and very friendly wardens.

The welcome we received when we arrived was second to none, even helped us position it on our pitch. Very clean and friendly site, and a nice dog walk area plus lovely walk into Kendal. Our dogs loved it. If you are looking for somewhere to eat, highly recommend the Gateway Inn on just off the A591 at the big roundabout. Fantastic food and service .

This review is for Kendal

We arrived at this site and received a very warm welcome from all the site staff. We had a hard standing pitch for our caravan and awning. The site was spotlessly clean and well maintained. There was a good dog walk off the site and a nice river walk into Kendal (you can get the bus back to Morrisons if required) Lots of great walks in the area, you also have Windermere not too far away, We visited the Hawkshead Brewery in Staveley for traditional beers and great food, (try the beer tapas!)there is also an artisan bakery next door. All in all a great site and we will be back soon!
