The Ashes is a small, friendly, adults only park in an extremely peaceful setting in the rolling Cumbrian countryside, yet less than three miles from the M6, and only slightly further from Kendal. Thus it is not only a convenient night stop, but also a useful base from which to explore the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. A very tidy park, the central grass area is attractively planted with shrubs and bushes and there is an open vista (with little shade). There are 25 hardstanding gravel pitches, all with 10A electrical connections. These are neatly placed around the perimeter with an oval access road. The whole area slopes gently down from the entrance, with some pitches fairly level and others with a little more slope (levelling system for caravans on all pitches). No tents are accepted other than trailer tents.

Alan Rogers Review
A small, purpose built stone building with a slate roof houses two unisex shower rooms (underfloor heating) and the washing and toilet facilities. New facilities for disabled visitors. No shop. New electronic barrier. TV signal booster. Dog exercise area. WiFi (charged).
From M6 exit 37 follow the A684 towards Kendal for 2 miles. Just past a white cottage turn sharp left at crossroads signed New Hutton. Site is on right in 0.75 miles at a left bend. Only approach and depart using this road.
