Beautiful site nestled on the shore of Lake Windermere, we stayed for a week in August. We had a pitch on the 'island' with room for only 2 tents, luckily nobody else came so we had an isolated spot, surrounded by trees and a stream. The pitches around the site are well spaced, in woodland by the lake or open field. Our nearest toilet block was not too far for a dash but we heard no noise from hand dryers! It was cleaned regularly with good free hot showers and electric points. The washing up sinks were clean and easily accessible. There were no electric hook ups to my knowledge. There is a good childrens play area, a visiting 'burger van' from local farms and a shop that catered for the essentials, 20p to have your ice things frozen, staff were helpful, particularly when the stream rose and the rain caused us difficulties getting off the island, they put more bark down so our little bridge remained dry.The site is remote and if you want organised entertainment this is not for you. The views were stunning and having Wray Castle literally a 10 minute walk. Pitches are booked in advance so eliminating the last past the post competition for a good pitch. Good facilites if you take a canoe etc. Best site i have visited for a good few years, i will try a National Trust site again.
