This is a lovley little caravan site. fantastic location and a short walk from the local town. plenty of local cafes, pubs, restaraunts, attractions and shops around. Windermere is stunning and the site is situated on the lakeside. We don't have kids so I cannot comment on facilities for them but I know there is no pool and to be honest there didn't look like much to do for children. However, I think there are other parks nearby with the same owners where you can use the facilities for free. The caravan we stayed in was ample. Everything you need (including wifi) I think parking may be an issue for some. We had our own parking space but the lady with whom I booked informed me that not all caravans have their own parking space (something I have never came across when staying in caravan sites)
The site itself is lovley. Lots of little flower beds etc and very well kept and well maintained.
We had a couple of drinks here and there in the on site bar (The Boathouse I think it was called) However, I felt the staff in here were a little abrupt. We tried to have dinner one night and were told food doesn't start until 5pm (fair enough, but were told kinda sharply) we were late getting back to the site one night and were again told very sharply that food finishes at 9! the final time we tried to have dinner here, there was a few things off the menu including one of the only things I would have liked (vegetarian) Ach maybe I'm being sensitive, but I sometimes got the feeling we weren't wanted in there! However, there are many places to eat nearby within walking distance so no big deal.
No cash machine on site either which was a bit of a pain.
But all in all, a great little site. The little niggles I have certainly wouldn't put me off staying here again.
