The site is accessed easily from the m6, although a better discription of the access from the main road would be in order, as it was much easier to find than it would appear from the site book instructions....it is a perfect location to explore the lakes, this was our first visit, and wont be our last.....we found everything handy, even the local superstores in Kendal.

Immaculately clean, beautifully kept pitches Everything you could need for a base in Cumbria.

Immaculately clean, beautifully kept pitches Everything you could need for a base in Cumbria. Greater emphasis on caravans not tents. But that is not a bad point, just there are more caravans than tents Bar was reasonable too.
