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.
Some pitches are sloping and chocks are required.

What a great little site this is. Arrival couldn't have been easier. The manager Phil was really helpful showing us to our pitch and getting us level etc. There is a Morrisons and an Aldi 10 mins walk away and plenty of places to eat in Kendal. Windermere is about 8/9 miles away and Ambleside a further 4/5 miles. Great little dog walk area is available, and there's a lovely walk into town along a riverside path. I would recommend the site to anyone. First Class !

Lovely hosts - warm, friendly and extremely helpful.
The site was well laid out, the facilities were immaculate and the views fantastic.
We were surprised that there was no way to freeze our own ice packs and felt the 'rental' arrangement at 50p per ice pack per day was unnecessary, over-complicated and inconvenient for both guests and managers.
The major weakness of the site, especially for tent users, was the traffic noise. The A6 is an incredibly busy and very noisy road. The rush hour seemed to start at 6am but there was traffic all night long - passing at great speed within a couple of hundred yards of the tent. They must have surfaced the road with a particularly noisy material because the noise level was even higher than the traffic levels warranted. A shame, because this spoilt what was otherwise a perfect site.

warm welcome from the manager and his wife who also gave useful advice on places to visit and how to get there.T he sit was very clean and well looked after.The shower/toilet block was clean but could do with updating having said that the showers were nice and hot. Morrisons just 5mins drive away and site easy to find. Look forward to visiting again.

The facilities are so far behind some of the other club sites it's a great shame and makes me think again about booking for another holiday. The walk in to Kendal takes 40 minutes and there are no buses that stop near to the site. (Not the clubs fault! Just letting folk know.)
