Great place to Visit - Take Great CARE AT WHITE MOSS Car Park. This is just on the edge of a local walk for us, and a great place to visit, but we finally got caught by the ANPR camera system not recognising our number plate. As others have said this is a Scam - complain to the British Parking Association about Initial Parking and their lack of working machines. The more that complain, then the more likley that Initial Parking will be barred BPA membership and hence access to DVLA records. Don't bother with POPLA or appealling to Initial Parking as you won't get anywhere, even with proof of a valid ticket. There are lots of other good places to park nearby - Grasmere and Rydal car parks that are run by LDNP, but they get full early because of White Moss so take note. For Lowther Estates - this car park is a disgrace and affects the local area badly - replace the system with something far simpler and stop employing the cowboys.

NEVER PARK in WHITE MOSS CAR PARK - there are plenty of others to use & start your wander of Rydal from anywhere else. You will only be haunted for months after paying legitimate tariff to park & harassed & bullied for penalty payments. IF you chance it make sure you get ticket AND receipt for tariff paid & take photo of the machine T&Cs & be prepared. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

A brilliant walk with the family that ends up at the caves at the top. Views are great all along and the kids like the echo of the cave walls and stepping stones to the back of the cave

THIS CAR PARK IS AN OUTRAGEOUS SCAM! My partner and I were in the Lake District for 4 days in Early December and used several different pay by phone/ pay and display car parks with not one single problem. We spent ages trying to use the online system and had issues paying with the card machine as it was not working so paid in cash for our stay and even rushed our walk to make sure we arrived back well ahead of time for our ticket expiry. We came home today having been in lockdown with family over Christmas to a debt collection letter demanding £170 from Debt Recovery Plus for “unpaid tariff time” at the white moss car park. (we categorically paid for a ticket) and have not received a single notification or letter prior to this final demand dated 15/01. This is 100% a scam and the volume of people who have been subject to this scam is absolutely appalling. We will be appealing this, writing to our local councillor and seeking legal advice. This is clearly a huge issue and one which I hope our warnings prevent anyone else experiencing the same horrible experience.

Car Parking. There are many reviews on here, and all bad by looks of it. I too have been issued with PCN having paid by the recommended "Flowbird App", which wouldn't then let me purchase extended period. After doing some investigation, turns out the site owned by Lowther Estate appointed Initial Paking Oct 2020. Previously operated by Park With Ease and Parking Eye, both these companies also had terrible reviews. Also turns out that Mark Edward Ashby (Director) was previously director of Smart Parking, Smart Parking UK Ltd and Town and City Parking, all of which have terrible reviews, one as high as 99%. Turnover of Initial Parking in first year of trading Jan 19 to Dec 20 (11 months) over £400,000, with only 2 employees. Approx 70,000 PCN's at £60 a pop. Easy money. Suggest everybody with terrible experience writes to the Lowther Estate, Lowther Estate Office, Lowther Castle, Lowther, Penrith CA10 2HH. Tel 01931 712577. email info@lowther.co.uk
