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.

Had a fantastic 5 night break, watching the mist lift in the morning to reveal the local scenery was worth the trip alone. Christine & Mike were both very friendly and helpful. Toilet block although a little basic was clean, warm & dry. Would happily recommend Kendal to anyone, in fact we already have. We intend to use this site again, soon.

Although the site is near the supermarkets which is useful it does not detract from the quiet location of the site. We had a lovely time there with our two grandchildren. The walks by the river with the dog were lovely.Christine and her husband are very welcoming. Kayaking at fell foot park is great. The steam train and the local farm are good places to visit. There is only two showers and three toilets which are kept spotless but if the site was full there would be a struggle. But don't let this put you off visiting.

We were welcomed at the site by the owners who took us to a selection of pitches, the fact that we choose the 1st pitch we saw did not seem to be an issue.
Our pitch was large with open views, toilets were close by and the showers a short stroll away. The facilities were spotless and the water warm.
The site has a shop and pub both of which we used, no complaints, decent food and not to bad prices.
We walked to the nearest village (about 35 mins over the hills) which provided transport links to Windermere and beyond.
Couple of things that I would say, the site is quite isolated, if you don't like walking or cycling there is not much on the doorstep. The other thing was this site describes itself as suitable for couples, in my opinion I would say this is a family site, our trip was maybe not ruined by the number of children on the site but certainly impacted the 'peaceful' aspect to our holiday.
This is a large site, well managed and in a nice setting. We would not return to this site as I don't think it is suitable for couples not for any other reason.

Had a most enjoyable break over Easter period. Welcome and service from wardens was quite exceptional. Facilities are quite basic but are well maintained and spotlessly clean and perfectly adequate. Site is easy to find and access straight off the A6 but is surprisingly peaceful and it is hard to believe you are so close to Kendal town centre when on the site. No hesitation in recommending to others and look forward to return visits.
