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.

Very friendly welcome, even though it was the end of the season and I was only staying one night. Beautifully cut green grass. Helpful suggestions for tent location facing a nice view. Bricks available for my stove and pans. I was very pleased to have instructions for a walk by the River Mint included with the camp information; just what I needed after a long drive. The weather was good (it only rained at night).

On arrival to the site we were greeted with a lovely warm welcome from the site team. ( I would point out that the site is not very well sign posted from the main road and the entrance is pretty tight I would say especially if you are towing a large caravan)
The site itself is what I would describe as a real old fashioned and well layed out. The shower block is a bit dated, but they were spotlessly clean as was all of the site and for me was what made this one the best sites we have visited over the 10 years of membership with the club. It is handy for Kendal a lovely easy to walk around 30mins along by the river bank.
There is also a Morrison's supermarket 10 mins walk across the lovely countryside which if you do not feel like walking into Kendal you can get the bus just outside Morrisons which we did on our return journey from Kendal.
We will defiantly be returning to this site for another relaxing break and would recommend this to anyone who likes a quite location for piece and quite.
