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.

This review is for Kendal

Wardens Chris, Catherine and Geoff were very friendly and helpful and my many stays at this pleasant site have been very enjoyable. The site is just on the outskirts of Kendal and has a peaceful rural setting. Having said that the pleasant market town of Kendal is close by so you have all the facilities that offers. The site is also very handy for exploring the southern lake district or the western dales. Site facilities are due to be upgraded this winter, as I understand it. Personally I didn't mind the somewhat basic facilities, but I can understand why some will appreciate an upgraded toilet/shower block. Its a little gem of a site, actually!

wardens very nice thats the plus now the minus, booked 12 nights but went home after 5 lane to site and site roads pot holes water and mud, we were on hard standing water running through, I know the weather is out of sites control but the dog walk and grass by pitches were just mud, the showers and toilet block are clean but need up date, with the state of the pitches and roads on site it should have been closed and refund given or a different choose of site.Have stayed at this site before but it has gone down in standard while pitch fees and membership keep going up

This review is for Kendal

The warden was very friendly and helpful, However the hardstandings are small and most are not level. Even with using the largest ramp I could borrow I couldn't get my motorhome level. Also THERE IS NO GREY WATER DISPOSAL POINT FOR MOTORHOMES. Access road is full of potholes as are most of the roads on the site. The facilities, although clean, desperately need to be upgraded. Considering the popularity of the Lake District this would be one site I wouldn't recommend.
