This review is for Windermere

We stayed here for 3 nights to break our journey from the highlands and were disappointed but fair to say what we expected from ccc sites. Staff were rude and appeared not interested, there were lots of caravans/awnings which had been there for so long they were covered in green slime, both grass and hard standing pitches flooded. There is a site shop which sells newspapers, gas etc but only takes cash, there is also a pub/restaurant on site that's reasonably priced

Third time we have been here and pleased to say things haven't changed.

This review is for Windermere

Third time we have been here and pleased to say things haven't changed. Nice big open pitches and well maintained facilities. We were basically having a chill out time after spending a week with our grandchildren - tiring but fun. One point for improvement (if the site wardens read this??) on our pitch 85 the edge of the tarmac was significantly higher than the very loose stones which formed the pitch hardstanding. As a result, when I came to leave using our motor mover, it couldn't pull the caravan over the lip.
