Overview

  • Campsite is located within a National Park

    Site within National Park

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.

Top site.

This review is for Kendal

Top site. The shower cubicles are a little small but PLEASE don't 'upgrade' them to those dreadful push button cheap and nasty ones that are appearing on so many sites.

We had a fab activity holiday.

This review is for Kendal

We had a fab activity holiday. Easy access to lakes and mountains for long and challenging walks, went outdoor climbing and scrambling and canoeing with a company called RiverdeepMountainhigh - can't recommend highly enough ! Locally Sizergh castle and farm shop definitely worth a visit - watch cows being milked! Kendal climbing wall is also only 20 mins walk from site. The Brewery Arts Centre was a nice place for a drink while kids in cinema at same place. The site was exceptionally clean and well maintained with lovely hanging baskets and planters, the hard standing pitches include the area the awning goes on so would be useful to take some rock pegs, we didn't have these and the assistant site manager kindly lent us some. The shower and loo block was fine - cleaned regularly and even though there were only 2 showers in the ladies I only had to wait once to use them - the water pressure was good and there was always copious amounts of hot water! We had a fab family holiday!

A lovely site with very friendly and helpful staff.

This review is for Kendal

A lovely site with very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent access to the nearby facilities of Kendal. Good walking and opportunities for exercising dogs on the leash (some sheep in fields). Very well placed for access to other Lake District centres. Limited shower and toilet facilities are being addressed and new facilities are planned for next year. We enjoyed a three day break and would return.

This review is for Kendal

Stayed here for Hawkshead Beer Festival at Staverley about a 1 mile walk to train station which takes you to Staverley or you can carry on to Windermere. If you carry on walking about 1/4 mile you end up in Kendal Town Centre. Lots of activities in this area.
