We had a lovely stay for 3 nights. Great walks from site straight onto the shore Ullswater Lake, Site was clean and tidy and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. I would highly recommend the site. The scenery was lovely , the site was well equipped, We will be back.
Stayed here to break up the trip to Scotland. Campsite has loads of space, especially compared to the campsite down the road. We managed to get a waterside pitch which was lovely, plenty of flat ground. There’s a nice looking cafe but we didn’t stay long enough to sample it. Bathroom facilities are good - tidy and plentiful.
Very special place right next to the lake. A pity about the weather, very windy and wet. Pooley Bridge is only a 5-10inute walk along the edge of the lake. A few places to eat and drink with some great vegan food.
Staff friendly and helpful. Toilets so clean and posh, it was like using a bathroom at an expensive restaurant. Showers clean and free. Free hairdryer available. There was an area that had washing machines, dryers, coffee machine, books and chairs. There was a a camp shop. They had a restauant and bar, we didn't use it but the prices seemed reasonable. There were kyaks etc to hire. The best thing was that they had a quiet time from 11pm to 8am which people abided to. It is about 20 mins walk to Pooley bridge along the water which is really nice. In the evening you can walk around the campsite and along the waters edge. It is very picturesque. I have already recommneded this site and we will definately come again.
Love the location of this campsite, the views across Lake Ullswater are spectacular but believe it could do with a few changes in my opinion. Firstly it could do with more bins around the site. Apart from the cafe bins which you can only put cafe rubbish in you have to walk across the site to the bins at the back. Secondly I understand its a working farm but on the Friday night there were loads of cows in the shed and they "moo'd" all night which kept us awake. One more thing which I believe the site could benefit with is more gravel where the premium pitches are. Being the Lakes it rains a lot and the grass around the tents gets very muddy and that transfers on to your boots and clothes. I understand its camping and you can't stay 100% clean but again in my opinion I believe it will help. I do love the location and the view and the food at the cafe is very nice. Again these are my thoughts.…
