A hidden gem.

This review is for Scales

A hidden gem. Lovely to find a CS in a lovely location off the main tourist beat and track but in stunning scenery with good dogs walks. We were lucky enough to have the site to ourselves on our 3 night visit. The site is about 5 miles off the A66, easy towing, with good access to Keswick, Rheged, Ullswater and Borrowdale. There are no showers or toilets as is common on CS sites (we quite like that) but all other facilities spot on including chemical toilet disposal, waste recycling and fresh water. The views of the surrounding fells are amazing and although our weather wasn't great it did clear enough for us to appreciate the views. The owner, Rhona, was great and even invited us in for tea and biscuits with our muddy collie when we went up to pay. Greystoke Forest is just down the road, excellent dog walks (apart from when they are testing rally cars or running the foxhounds as we found out (check the notices!!). There is a pub in local village Mungrisdale and in nearby Greystoke although both would need to be driven to probably. We'd definitely return and recommend this great little site.

The site has great views; it's peaceful; the owners are helpful and friendly and the facilities are more than adequate for a hideaway. We would definitely recommend this site. It's lovely.

New owners very friendly and site as stunning as ever. We even had beautiful weather and had the barbeque out - on a Bank Holiday weekend in Cumbria! Beautiful views and sunshine, what more could anyone ask for?! We will certainly return soon!
