This review is for Windermere

This site and it's staff are probably about the best you can get, service with a smile and they work very hard to keep the place clean and tidy. Location is ideal if you want a quiet relaxing stay, and the pub on site serves wonderful food. Showers/toilets to a very high standard and spotlessly clean. Short walk into Staveley by public footpaths for nice pubs and food made this a relaxing break (nice weather helped too!). Hope to visit again before the end of summer, would recommend to anyone.

This review is for Windermere

Great site whuich I would have no hesitation in recommending. The site is well laid out and is well maintained. The toilet/shower facilities are modern, clean and warm. There was a little pub on site which we did not use. Papers and provisions are available from reception. Great facilities provided for backpackers in the shape of a wooden lodge with picnic tables, drying room, washing up and cooking area for primus stoves. Bricks were also provided for disposable BBQ's - thoughtful little touches. We really enjoyed our stay - weather was a bit mixed but that's one thing that none of us can control!

This review is for Windermere

I cannot blame club for weather, which was mainly rain with some sunny spells, how-ever for the money the club charges I feel the field could be made more even and drainage improved. I and my family have been camping for best part 40 years,and can honestly say this was one of the worst fields we have camped on. The good parts, the site is located in a very nice part of the country, is well laid out, friendly staff, clean facilities, and the small pub by reception selling reasonable priced food a bonus. I would say this site would be fabulous if weather sunny, but hey this is the United Kingdom

This review is for Windermere

Approach is via a long narrow road with few passing spaces. Luckily we didn't meet a caravan coming the other way when towing even if we had to pull in and reverse a few times when just in the car. The site offers both sheltered and open pitches and most service roads are well maintained, minor roads can be a bit rough. Toilet blocks are a little utilitarian and fellow guests aren't always that good about leaving them the state you would like to find them so we used our van whenever possible. On our pitch, TV reception was poor but other pitches had a good signal. Overall a lovely holiday in a beautiful location but a little extra investment in service roads and toilet blocks would be welcomed. We hope to return and would consider a seasonal pitch as long as it is in the open areas.
