I stayed in my tent in without electric hook-up and I think it was probably the best accommodation on the site. As we drove in to the site and over the old and tired looking tarmac road thats turning to gravel we looked at all the chalet's and static caravans rotting away. The pictures you see on tripadvisor from others are pretty accurate. It looks like they haven't invested any money in the site in the last 25 years or so.
On the plus side it was half term and the site was really quiet, I know why now. The swimming pool is clean, basic, but clean. The Jacuzzi is really just part of the main swimming pool with bubbles. There is a sauna too, which is clean and nice and hot. We wasn't given any passes when we checked in and when we tried to get in the pool the man said in broken english "passes" we said we didn't have any and he just said "ok". There is an old golf course to the rear of the park, which is now an overgrown buttercup meadow (but the tee's are still there). There is a small farm with a miniature railway (although I never saw a train on the tracks). Inside, the farm is a couple of pigs, donkeys, al pacas, deer, and a cat! There is a pitch and putt 9 hole next to the farm too. On the site is a bar which serves pizza/chips ect and a entertainment room upstairs. We decided to check out the entertainment room upstairs and as we approached there was litterally 4 people in the entire room playing bingo....we left.
On the touring field there is a shower block which in the mens has 3 toilets, 3 showers. I never had to queue, but the site was quiet. The toilets was clean, but is is probably best to wear flip flops in the shower. The water was a comfortable temperature. There are 4 sinks for dish washing and a chemical waste disposal unit.
Overall we paid £70 for 6 nights camping, this fairly cheap for cumbria, and we know why now. We didn't have an unpleasant stay, but we didn't stay in their accommodation, and didn't use their facilities.
I wouldn't go back, or recommend it to my family or friends unless they was desperate.
