This review is for Windermere

We stayed on this site on our way to Scotland and receive an excellent greeting from the site staff who were all very friendly, however we were disappointed to find no phone signal which forced us to try the site wifi which did not work properly and we wasted our �4.00 (two attempts). other things that were annoying were no tap adaptors on the taps at the camper service pitch which was not marked on the map provided. also difficulty in using the tilt grey waste lid (not the usual lift off lid) which you had to tilt and the reverse over. We enjoyed the catering facility which was very convenient but thought one poppadum was a bit mean. Overall a good site with a good location but needing a few niggles sorted out. Recommended for a quiet break with lovely outlook, but not recommended if phone/email is important to you.

This review is for Windermere

There are walks from the site. There is easy to access moderate and harder walks. The site is between Kendal and Windermere if you want to shop or eat out.There are micro breweries not far away that offer an excellent variety of beers and or food. Provided you bring a choice of clothing you should have a great time. We always do each time we stay at this site and we will continue to return. The site is also convenient for our children to either stay or visit as it is just a few miles from the M6. Therefore if you want to tour the site is I feel in a good position for this. Only problem is the access road off the A591 as it comes just at the end of a dual carriageway and this road is in need of repair but it does mean the site is secluded. Although we do not use it much there is pub on site that serves the local beers and provides meals and breakfasts on Saturdays and Sundays, ideal for campers. The staff are helpful and friendly and keep the site in great order.
