The surrounding area

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.

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.

I got a very warm welcome when I arrived, the site was clean and very well looked after, with I will say spotless toilets and showers. located close to local supermarkets and a nice stroll into the town with special taxi rates for site guests. Would stay there again with pleasure.

This review is for Kendal

A brilliant small site with fantastic wardens. Thank you for looking after our group of five families so well. They made sure that we were all together and all had a warm welcome. It was brilliant that we were next to the park and even better that it had football nets. (In seperate field) Some of our friends had never camped before and had a great first experience. Thanks again

This review is for Kendal

Father and young daughter travelling from the west country to Scotland, camping in a family size tent. This was a perfect location for a 5 night stop along our route lots in the area to keep us busy. Great welcome and friendly staff as we have come to expect. The weather was very wet so a limited choice of usable pitches. Happy to settle for the fairly level/dry spot considering the conditions.Dog noise from other visitors and the grass cutting began to chafe the nerves at times. The showers were small and could do with some investment. No family room so the small showers did not work well for us. Good site for a motorcaravan,Ill return to the area but not to this site in a tent.
