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 review is for Kendal

Well laid out pitches; toilet & showers were very clean but could do with increasing as people were having to queue each morning. Site was within walking distance of a Morrisons & Aldi; and the town was about 1.1/2 mile away. Buses run from outside Morrisons and taxi service from site was �5 each way which meant we could leave our motorhome sited. Kendal town wasn't the best for parking, but otherwise a good town.

We visited Brockhole on Windermere - loads to do and often hosting special events, Beatrix Potter Attraction (theatre - where is Peter rabbit was excellent!) and Ambleside - all easily accessible by car. The riverside walk from the campsite was lovely to do in an evening. Close by Morrisons and Aldi for supplies.

This review is for Kendal

You have a very good staff working hard to keep this site up to standard the club requires to spend a lot more money on the site if you refurbished this site would be excellent the pan wash & washing room was claustrophobic To say the least a track over the hill to the showers toilets would make a difference .
