Kendal Camping & Caravanning Club site is perfectly located for those who enjoy walking and cycling. The hills and peaks of the southern Lake District are on the doorstep while the Yorkshire Dales National Park is around a 30 minute drive away. This attractive site feels secluded yet is within walking distance of Kendal itself where you will find a selection of shops, a supermarket, two castles, the Abbot Hall Art Gallery as well as the award winning Quaker Tapestry Exhibition. Windermere is nine miles away. Here you can launch a boat, windsurf or canoe. Back on land, the World of Beatrix Potter at Bowness on Windermere offers the chance to meet Peter Rabbit and his friends. The site has 50 grass or hardstanding pitches most with electric hook-up.
N.B. Non-members are welcome and may join on site. Please speak to site staff for details and to check pitch availability before arrival.
On the western shores the National Trust owned woodlands, Claife Heights, is great for walking, cycling and wildlife spotting. Ambleside at the northern tip of the lake is the starting point for the challenging Wansfell and the Langdales. You can also walk to Stock Ghyll Force from the centre of the town. Pretty Grasmere is worth a visit; treat yourself to Sarah Nelson’s famous gingerbread at her shop in the corner of the churchyard.
