“Lovely site in lovely area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2010

This site is lovely and in a very pretty location next to the river. It is well kept and the toilets and showers were very clean. Gareth who manages the site and his dog George were very friendly and welcoming. (Thanks to Gareth's sister and her 2 friends who were visiting for the weekend for keeping me company on Sat night) The only critiscm was the hairdryer in the ladies which was neither use or ornament, and there was nowhere to plug in your own. However it wouldn't put me off staying there again.
We can definately recommend The Woodlands tea room which is about a 5 min walk from the site - the cakes there are delicious!

Site pleasant, riverside location, tranquil, although facilties basic, toilet block very basic, no hair drying facility and in need of updating; showers expensive at £1 a go. Miles away from any shops facillties etc. nearest at Gosforth 5 miles away. Good pub next door, excellent food ( regulary local celebrity Eric Robson!!!!)

Campsite small but adequate, person meeting us could have been more friendly, felt like we were viewed as pound signs. Wanted cash or cheque - no cards.....Facilities basic but adequate, not impressed at having to pay an extra pound for a shower on top of the booking fees.
Saving grace was the fabulous pub next door, the Bridge Inn. Food was excellent, staff very friendly and accomodating. Ideal for walking Scafell Pike.

This is a lovely quiet campsite with basic but clean facilities. The campsite has now been taken over by new owners who are very friendly and updating the facilities.

Stayed at this campsite - dirty showers, you could not breath without the owner interfering. The only saving grace was the lovely pub next door - the bridge inn, terrific food, great beer and friendly staff.
