Don't go here! We want it to ourselves! No noise or fire after 11. Families only, no groups. Site is checked at 11 and farmer gets shirty if you ignore curfew. Inherently beautiful site even when it's wet. Take a piece of rope and make a swing. Talbot pub 10 minutes walk but you may scrape your nose on the... More

It's a great place but you need to look after yourself by taking torches, food, a bucket to carry water and a tactful approach to a few noisy people who spoil it at busy times. The entrance is too narrow for caravans or big camper vans, so luckily they go somewhere else and pay a fortune. There's a postbox near... More

Stopped here on Saturday night, got to site late, very friendly owners, found a nice spot and pitched tent, very nice site, would love to go again. Lovely walk in the morning to the tarn so children could have a early morning swim

If you are looking for an old fashioned, somewhat primitive campsite in a little corner of paradise, this is the place! Hard to find, near Skelwith Bridge, but worth the search. Priced at £3 per person (2008) and with just a couple of toilets in old outhouses and a big old sink in the farm yard for water/washing, don't expect... More
