Lovely setting, friendly enough. Few facilities though. One urinal and one flush toilet for all the men, and two flush toilets for the women, and one sink for washing up isn’t enough. No policing of noise meant a couple of late night ‘difficult’ conversations with rude imposing neighbours. Not a bad site at all, it’s ok, so close to everywhere you’d want to go, a short walk from the pub, a short cycle to the forest park … but the sanitation facilities need expansion.

Me and my partner do a lot of camping trips around the country and especially love a visit to the lakes. This was the first time we have stayed at the campsite and it was brilliant. It was one of the most efficient campsites I have been too in the lakes that aren't just out there to rinse you of your money. It is very cost effective for what you get. The facilities are great, I personally seen the owner re stocking the toilets and wash room with items and doing a clean to ensure everyone is happy. You are allowed to have camp fires on site which is amazing and to top it off the owner has sacks of kindling and logs you can buy for cheep so you can have a campfire at night. The owner is very friendly and will chat to you and asks for your honest thoughts and feedback. He also gives you a few tips about the lo Al area and some nice walks. For a campsite it is everything you would need. If you are a person who is wanting luxury then there are pods and huts but again it is a camp site and a working farm so don't book and expect the hilton.

Been camping since I was about 8. This place was spot on. Seen some negative reviews, which have nothing to do with the site, the location, the amenities or the two running the place. Arrived after the better half, pointed towards her in a brilliant and friendly manner, choice of two fields to stay in. Loads of room, plus as an added bonus, pizza available freshly cooked on a Monday and Tuesday! For the price these guys charge and the facilities available, the people giving less than 3 stars need to give their head a shake. Many many places in the lakes charge a lot more and give a lot less! Would 100% come again.

This campsite is a back to basics campsite but we really do love it. There is a pub that you can walk to within 5 mins which serves great food and good beer. The campsite is quiet and we spent our nights watching the shooting stars there is 0 light pollution so the skies are amazing. There's lots of nice walks you can do which start from just outside the campsite. The facilities are basic but clean, Emma and Arthur are great and can't do enough to help you. We can't wait to return in 2 weeks

If you're keen to be kept up until 3/4am every night listening to the sound of selfish drunken middle aged groups of people with no consideration for anyone else on the site, then this is the place for you. It seems that due to covid, groups of people not able to travel abroad are frequenting campsites, and it seems, are not familiar with the usual etiquette of quiet after 11pm.
