Touring caravan holiday – June 2014

Rating: 9/10

I keep looking at this site on but never got round to going. We decided to give it a try so I rang up and booked, no hassle no deposit required.

This site is just over an hour from home, a bit longer due to traffic. The site is only 2. 5 miles from the M6 J36 but you can’t hear the traffic.

The entrance to the site is a bit off putting as there is a bit of an industrial area with wagons and coaches we wondered where we were going to. Once you drive up the lane to the site it is totally different. It is a long narrow site with a river on one side and a stream on the other. There is a nice reception and a bar. There is a barrier and a £10 deposit is needed for the barrier card, which is returned once the card is returned.

The toilets were clean and showers were warm, push button operation.

We walked down to the pub on Friday and people from the site with statics and seasonal pitched were sat out enjoying the sun and having a drink. They invited us to join them so we did. We went in the pub again on Saturday evening, the prices are very reasonable £2. 50 for Thatchers Gold cider.

The people on this site are very friendly and we were made really welcome. One of the most pleasant sites we have been on.

There is the Crooklands Hotel about 300 yards from the site that does food. Kirkby Lonsdale and Kendal are both 6 miles away.

This is a jem of a site, It is really peaceful and relaxing. We are glad we finally went and we will definitely be going back
