Having studied the large number of negative and positive reviews of this site we booked it with great trepidation.
However our one week stay was almost entirely wonderful. From the beautiful location, with soft grass and soil (my first camping experience without a bend tent peg), to the friendly staff, and off course the brilliant fire pits (my tip is to always keep the logs vertical to give them enough air).
Certainly the site was crowded over the Bank Holiday period, but all our neighbours (with one noisy exception) were friendly and quite at night.
It was perfect for the three young children we took, who were able to find all kinds of adventurous activities to keep entertained.
My only criticism would be the rather small and distant toilet block, which although always clean, did get crowded at 'rush hour'.
I would be happy to return to this beautiful and less touristy part of the Lake District at any time.
