The "lake District". A place I always wanted to visit along with my wife. A place of stunning views and outstanding beauty. HOWEVER if you decide to drive around and look for these views it will cost you plenty. Everywhere are so called "car parks". Camera activated, so when you drive in you have to PAY!! We stopped four times... More

For those who love to get out in nature from busy city buzz...find solitude in the Lake District. Well kept and good access...a lovely change to OxfordStreet London. Weather changes fast so have all ready in case of cold or rain...even if day starts sunny...

The theory is that your car registration number is photographed upon entry and exit and you put your car registration number in just before you leave and pay the charges accordingly. However fail to put the correct registration number in with honest intent, fail to clear the car park fast enough, and you get a letter telling you pay £25... More

I parked at the white moss car park on 18/4/15 for about 1.25 hours and was charged £2.35 for the privilege. When I went to pay I started putting coins in the machine before I noticed one of the coins I needed was foreign. I tried to cancel the transaction by pressing the return coins button on the machine. No... More

The system on the car park is awful. The suggestion is that when you drive in your number plate is recognised and you pay on exit by following the instructions. Well when the sun is directly on the screen that in itself is not easy. We went to pay for our time there before leaving. We made the assumption that... More

white moss , park with ease, is a scam to charge , as the machine was not working and now after 11 month we are being harassed to pay £100 parking fine with the Threat to take us to County court and ruin the Credit and huge court fee up-till £300.

WHIT E MOSS CAR PARK (PARK WITH EASE) This must be the worst name thought off. Beware do not use this car park. I too have been caught out. I had to use this car park, when I was having a asthma attack, to enable me to take my medication, this was at 7.10am. I was the only car parked,... More

We drove round this area for twelve hours, stopping every now and then to admire the views, we had local people (family) to show us round this beautiful countryside, well worth a visit, even if it is raining, the views from the car are as spectacular as the tops of the hills. If you are wondering where to go on... More
