A lovely little campsite with stunning views and a relaxed feel.
Myself and three others stopped for a five day period in early june and had a great time, the campsite is clean and well looked after, and the staff at the shop/check-in are attentive and friendly. The shop is fairly basic with just the few essentials to see you by, however keswick is only a 12 minute drive away and with a local inn a five minute walk away, good food at nights isn't a problem.
The toilets are kept clean and the free showers are a bonus.
The hot bacon sandwichs in the morning help set you up for the day ahead.
Would of been five stars but the shop could stock more items, and the weather wasn't great.
Would stay again, and i have recommended to my friends.

We tried here after getting turned away from a couple of other sites due to them been full on a very busy weekend, only to be met by some of the rudest customer service I have ever encountered. Granted we were 3 guys turning up without prior arrangement but we did politley explain that others were coming later on with females in the group and that we just wanted somewhere to stay while we did some walking over the weekend and that we would behave ourselves.
After some persuasion the woman at the reception said it would be ok, but her continued rude and obnoxious manner made us feel like we we rather sleep in the car than give them our money. We made our excuses and left.
I Cant comment on the quality of the site or its facilities, but if you would like polite and friendly service I would probably try elsewhere.
