Just returned from the Tarnside and all I can say is ''We escaped'. It is basically way out of the way. It took us 1hr 30m to get to Amberslide, Windermere area, 45 mins to get to Keswick and this is why I say that it is not for everyone.
Agreed that the place is next to the beach but it feels so unsafe. It is not Tarnside's fault, the people are very good actually, it is Hoseasons who are at fault for mis-selling this as a 'family caravan park' becuase it simply isn't. As someone said here, it is a caravan park for the workers at the Sellafield Nuclear plant. being next to the beach is not as good as it sounds. Last week the wind was blowing all night, we had the caravan heating turned up to max.
It must be said though that the caravan was neat and clean (except the linen). There are radiators in all rooms which is great!
Go there only if you prefer living away from the crowds and you dont want to visit the main areas e.g. Kendal, Windermere etc but otherwise please dont go.
The one big mistake I made before booking this is the fact that I did not read the Tripadvisor reviews before booking it! Big mistake!
