Our son, daughter-in-law, grandson & disabled grand- daughter were staying nearby & we were so grateful to the wardens who allowed them to bring their car up to our caravan. This hasn't always happened. The onsite pub serves good meals at reasonable prices. It is very easy to get into Kendal, the southern Lakes & also to Keswick & the northern Lakes from the site. In spite of it being a large site it was never noisy, and the children were able to play on scooters and bikes with ease...though sometimes rather too quickly!! We hope to use this site again next year.Towing: Moderate

I purchased wi fi 20 for season. I have been to two sites Chipping Camden and Windermere.
On both locations the service was very poor.
I feel this is not acceptable, when I complained at both sites the answer was it can be difficult when busy. I have had better service on sites where the Wi Fi was free. I feel as the club charges 20 the service should be betterTowing: Moderate
