A good little CL worth giving a try

We spent 4 nights on this site having been allocated a pitch number when booking, which I thought was a good idea in case we couldn't be personally met on arrival. The site is located to the rear of a sales/servicing business, which at times was busy but not intrusive as the CL is well back from the activity. The pitches are hard standing separated by grass and are a generous size, well separated and level. A water tap and drain is located on every pitch. A clean and tidy large toilet and separated shower is provided and a reasonably priced washing machine and tumble drier is also provided. The swimming pool is a waste of time as it has to be pre booked and works out very expensive unless at least 6 or 7 of you share the price. The owner was in no rush to take my money saying at least twice, - 'oh see me later, there's no rush'. In the end I had collar him with money in my hand as we were leaving the day after. There is a busy road which passes in front of the premises, but the pitches are well back and no disturbance was experienced. Phone and tv signals were very good. The view from the pitches was only onto a grassed area but was pleasant enough. Each pitch and the whole site was lit at night. The EHU's were only 12 amps so you had to be careful what you switched on together. All in all, a smashing site well worth another visit if only to get in more visits to more places of interest, having had a good nights sleep.


Great location! Good overall but a few snags!

We stayed on this site for 5 nights from the 11th July! Booking was easy. We were greeted and shown to our pitch which was level and spacious. Good clean facilities. Great location with easy access to the coast, Hadrian's Wall, the Lake District and the city of Carlisle. We had days out in all these places. The site is part of a caravan retailer business so there's lots of caravans on site albeit empty. This creates quite a busy atmosphere. Also there is caravan storage which is accessed through the CL. Although there wasn't too much traffic it was intrusive having cars coming in and out driving at speed which wasn't safe in my opinion when there were young children about! We would stay here again but only as an overnight stop rather than as a holiday base.


Lovely site close to Carlisle

We stayed at this site in March as we were going to a concert in Carlisle. The site is lovely and the facilities excellent. Carlisle was within walking distance following the Cumbria way. We only had one night so didn't have chance to explore the wider area but would stay here again. The road outside the site is quite busy which is why we have only rated peace and tranquility as 3.


A great CL

We were here in September, and really liked it. We arrived quite late due to having to wait in Wales while we had a repair done to the water system, but it was not a problem. Just drove in and pitched up on the pre-allocated pitch. We were so impressed we added an extra nights stay on our return trip from Scotland, and would definitely go there again. There is lots to do in the area, especially if you like anything Roman.


lovely little site

very clean huge pitches great shower and toilet, very clean. there is a pool on site but needs to be prebooked before your visit. this is a CL not a full holiday site. very welcoming couple too
