Questions:- (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Swift Kontiki 669 tag axle – 8.56m)
What are the pitches like?
All hard standings of varying sizes (there are about 25 touring pitches in total)
This is a large park consisting mostly of lodges, set on the hill leading down to the water. It is steep in places so probably not for those with limited mobility.
(Can I just say that, for some reason, we neglected to take any photos onsite so have to rely on photos of the area instead 🙂 )
Is there water on each pitch?
What is the electric like?
At least 10A– we had no problems
By the toilet block
What’s the site access like?
Access is good from the main road – the 1st entrance you see (coming from Bowness) is actually the exit – it’s important to use the 2nd gate on entry. Steep windy road down to the site. You will pass cottages and lodges – when you get to a bit where you’re not sure what way to go – go right!
What are the Sanitary facilities like?
Toilets: 1 sanitary block with ladies, gents and family room. Excellent facilities for both ladies and gents. You are given an access key for use.
Toilet paper provided? Yes – plentiful
Showers: Excellent. Everything kept immaculately clean
What other facilities are there?
Bins and CWD
Washing up area
Motorhome service point (drive over wastewater disposal)
Launching facilities for boats (additional fee)
Launching areas for kayaks
Is there any internet; if so how much and how good?
There is separate internet available for a charge. Good signal if you have your own.
What’s the welcome like?
Good welcome with lots of information.
How much is it?
We paid about £24 per night including electric in October, on an offer! This is a very popular area, hence the higher cost.
What’s the area like?
Lovely. Right on the water. Not far from Bowness.
There is so much to do with lots of walking to be had. And of course water sports (not really for the time of year we were there though!)
We didn’t like so much:-
The weather! Obviously not the site’s fault AND we missed the worst of it – in the days before we arrived there were many floods.
We moved on to Knott End near Blackpool to meet friends.
