Me, my wife and 2 daughters arrived on a rainy Thursday evening and received a warm welcome at reception. Asking to stay for 3 nights we were told to find a pitch and then just let them know where we were which is much better than being told where to go and what to do. Services on site are more than adequate for camping needs and the social area in caravan field with cooking/fridge facilities is a good idea that many other campsites could learn from. To go to sleep listening to sheep rather than counting them is a concept that takes about.......1/2 hr to get used to and the views in the morning when you put the kettle on are priceless. Overall value for money and location make this a perfect place to stay if you are in Cumbria and looking for a small slice of proper camping. Well done Gill head.
