A lovely well-kept site and thank you for the extra touch of the Kendal mint cake. My husband is enroute to Johnogroats so found it great on the hills to Penrith. Thank you

Was very impressed with the site. The location was ideal for what we wanted. The level of helpfulness from the hosts was top class and an example of how to run a successful campsite. Would highly recommend & will be staying again.

Would just like to say we have just returned after spending six nights at The Ashes and what a brilliant site. You have everything right. The toilets and showers are spotless as is the site. An absolute credit to you. Anyone wanting a lovely relaxing break then this is the place. Val and Fred are so nice will do anything for you. Cannot praise them enough. Thanks again. We will most certainly be back x

Not the first time we've been and certainly won't be the last. Fantastic camp with lovely people and even welcomed with kendal mint cake. The site has certainly been upgraded since our last visit with all fully serviced pitches. Only stayed the one night this time but will certainly be back for longer. The only noise you hear are the sheep... fantastic!! Worth a visit if you've never been. See you soon x

Could not have asked for more from this camp site. Our first trip in a camper van and we were warmly welcomed, everything we needed to know was clearly explained and even given some Kendall mint-cake from owner. Very clean tidy site and super quiet - just as we like it! Will definitely stay longer next time to explore this beautiful part of the country!

  1. This was our first outing in our new caravan. Stayed for 3 night. Fabulously peaceful and quiet site with wonderful surrounding views and walks. Immaculate site. Weather wasn’t kind so will come back when the sun shines.

  3. Would like to add a comment about this little gem of a caravan site. Thank you Valerie for the very welcome treat of kendal mint cake on arrival, such a lovely surprise . Thanks also to Mike & Christine for your assistance when our caravan charger decided to break down, without your help we would have had to cut our holiday short !!
    This 5 star caravan park is in a beautiful, peaceful part of the stunning county of Cumbria, it is perfectly located within easy reach of all the lakes and pretty villages. The site is kept immaculately clean by wardens Christine and Mike who are also on hand and very helpful. I would recommend anyone to visit this caravan site if you are visiting Cumbria and will certainly be a repeat customer … thank you Ashes for making our break better .

  5. We decided to go to the lakes for a few days to have a break from our work,we wanted a quiet place to stop at,we came off the A6and pulled into a lay-by,I got my phone out and looked at places to stop,first one to come up was The ashes we looked at a few more but decided to give it a try,we decided we was going to go to different places in the lakes,we pulled up at the gates and went to the reception was told to go down to the gates we met a nice couple who guided us to a pitch,we parked up and settled in we just thought it was for a day and we would move to another place the next day, well we was very pleased with the staff and site no one under 18 was the rule the next day we paid again then the next day,well we decided to stop 6 days in total it was lovely,clean and tidy, we will be going back again soon and think we will pay for the days we are up there instead of a day by day,we came stressed out and went home chilled out we would like to thank the owner and staff at the ashes thank you and will see you again Kev and Kev

  8. We stayed for six nights recently and it was one of the best experiences ever. Christine and Mike, the managers, were so helpful from start to finish. It’s so quiet, even when the park was full at the weekend it didn’t get noisy. Just the way we like it.

    The toilet block was always spotless and everybody respected that and looked after it, which was lovely. That really helped to make you feel you were staying with like-minded people.

    We’re already planning our next visit to the site.

    • Many thanks for your lovely comments. We are so pleased you have enjoyed your visit and extremely happy to know you have had an excellent experience at The Ashes. We hope you will be back to visit soon and look forward to providing an equally great atmosphere for your next holiday. Thank you again, Val.
