We were unable to have our favourite pitch as the Club Site Committee were booked on to the site and had bagged all the best pitches. Other than that our stay was as always great. Staveley is close by and you can walk there in about 20 minutes but you have to careful as you have to cross the A591 which is always busy. The food in The Eagle and Child is good and they have some nice beers on, they have a nice outside seating area overlooking the river. There is another pub in the village called The Duke William but we have never been in it so can't comment on it. Further down the 591 is the tiny village of Ings where there is a great pub called The Watermill Inn which has its own micro brewery and excellent food child and dog friendly. Further afield you have all the delights of The Lake District to explore either on foot, loads of footpaths accessible from the site, by bicycle road or mountain bike, by bus main bus route within walking distance on the A591 or by car if your feeling lazy or of limited mobility.

We still think it is a shame, and a bit odd that dogs are not allowed in the on site pub.

This review is for Windermere

We still think it is a shame, and a bit odd that dogs are not allowed in the on site pub. As we understand it, this is because of some camping and caravaning club rules about dogs not being allowed into enclosed places i.e toilets and shower blocks! We think a pub is a bit different? There are so many people who take dog with them on their holidays and are unable to enjoy the pub during bad weather as dogs are only allowed in the "beer garden" where there is nowhere to shelter from rain etc. The large majority of pubs in the Lake District allow dogs on their premises without any problems. Changing the rule would also help to boost business for the pub.....it seems to be quite empty most of the time!!! When the campsite is full of dog owners.
