Alan Rogers Review

Windermere Camping & Caravanning Club site provides water-based fun, walking and all the attractions of the lakes which are accessible from this site. It lies between popular Bowness-on-Windermere and the bustling market town of Kendal. Sit back and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the site, with plentiful wildlife and the wonderful views. Windermere site is not only spacious, but also well laid out and boasts many environmentally friendly facilities. Across the fields is the village of Staveley as well as a shop, supermarket, a couple of pubs and the Hawkshead Brewery. There are many walks to enjoy from the village, including Potters Fell and Reston Scar. Bowness-on-Windermere offers plenty of water-based activities including cruises, canoeing and wind surfing, plus attractions such as The World of Beatrix Potter and Aquarium of the Lakes. Take the chain ferry to the western side of the lake and visit the pretty village of Hawkshead and Claife Heights. The site has 215 pitches as well as camping pods, lodges, mobile homes and safari tents to rent.
