Camped out here for 2 nights over the weekend. This place is absolutely beautiful, set out very well. Everyone was really friendly. Very busy but not cramped at all we had a big pitch and felt very relaxed and comfortable. Toilets and showers were spotless at all times. Lovely place we will definitely be back. Thank you.

The Old Post Office is a very good campsite indeed. It runs along a river bank and is literally a three minute walk from a good local English pub. The site is clean, basic and quiet. We pitched to the right at the back of the site (as you drive through the gates.) The owner is very relaxed and you... More

Arrived earlier today. Neat little site tucked beside the River Irt at Santon Bridge. Owner is a friendly type, his dog prefers to reserve judgment. This site accepts dogs as long as they are well behaved, under control and cleaned up after. The owner lives on site. The hygiene facilities are well kept and more than adequate. A shower will...

We were located approx 2metres from the calming noise of the river which was fantastic unless you woke up in the night then gave you a slight urge to use the bathroom .George the owners dog happily wanders around site like security usually seen...

Nice site overall, however we stayed bank holiday weekend and the site really was cramped. No space in between and at one point really blocked in with a tent and car that had been squeezed between our caravan and someone elses caravan, would return but definitely not during a bank holiday. We have had far better pitch sizes and a... More

This campsite is a little gem. Lovely location and the owners have great pride in it making sure that everything is working well for their visitors. We were lucky enough to camp on the edge of the bank so listening to the birds and the flowing stream was perfect. It was fairly quiet when we were there 04th June and... More

We arrived on the Tuesday after bank holiday, it was very busy and had to pitch on a slope as the two other available pitches were a bit boggy. It seemed that the tents were all too close together really for comfort. The owner didn't seem to remember anything that we had discussed by email and said I'd not paid... More

Although I was with three friends, this is a great site for families with tents, caravans or motor homes as well as couples and independents. This small site, bordered by a stream has good basic facilities that are clean and tidy and are good for a site of this size. The owner was on hand to recieve visitors and gave... More

The Old Post Office campsite is the perfect base for an expedition to Scafell Pike, the highest peak in England. The owner is unfailingly friendly and helpful, and the nearby Bridge Inn is the final piece in the jigsaw. Single Step Tours will be back!
