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.

This is not a large site and so the facilites are close wherever you park.

This review is for Kendal

This is not a large site and so the facilites are close wherever you park. The hardstandings are fine - yes, you will need ramps depending on how your unit balances. But they are spacious and close to power points. The toilets and showers are 'tired', but are beautifully clean - the staff work miracles with old buildings. But don't be put off - they are fine, and the water is HOT! Fresh and grey water are easy and OH says the CDP is just the right height (its amazing how high some disposal points are). We will go back because its in a beautiful area, with easy communications. The town is not the most friendly if you have a large unit and trailer, but you only have to do it once to get in and once to get out! Ideal for walkers.

Excellent welcome as we arrived on spec without booking .

This review is for Kendal

Excellent welcome as we arrived on spec without booking . Made very welcome and asked if they had a fairly level pitch as we had no chocks. They happily found us a nice level pitch ( note that some are quite sloping so bring chocks next time). Facilities are dated but were clean and functional with plenty of hot water and powerful showers with stools and mops etc. Built in hair dryers meant you could easily dry hair. Good washing up facilities . Wardens available and very pleasant and helpful. Advised how to get to local shops via footpath through field of very friendly delightful sheep. Made ideal stop over as accommodated us for just one night but would happily return for weeks holiday.

Stayed here for 5 nights with our 2 small boys.

This review is for Kendal

Stayed here for 5 nights with our 2 small boys. Great sized site for them to run/scoot off and yet still be in sight. Hedged off play area kept them safe and entertained, only a few swings and a slide but plenty of room to kick a ball about without being in the way. The toilets were always immaculately clean and the showers were lovely and powerful, infact, think we encountered the hottest powerful water pressure ever experienced-bliss! 2 sinks & 3 drainers in the pot wash room, along with washer/dryer & iron. All more than adequate, we never needed to wait. Plenty of hard standing pitches, some a little slopey but not too bad. Great dog walk through the fields or along the river. Aldi/Morrissons (with petrol stn)/Halfords/Next & Matalan just around the corner, 10mins walk from site.
