We broke our journey with a stay for one night at The Ashes on our way to the West coast of Scotland. We were blown away, even though it was getting late (we did ring ahead as we were held up on our way from Devon) we were shown to a choice of pitches and the welcome pack of Kendal mint cake was a lovely touch. The grounds are beautifully tended, the showers were spotlessly clean, there is even a dog exercise area. Our only complaint is no other site we stayed at could compare! We were totally blown away and would definitely stay again!
Stayed in campervan for one night. Really nice site offering excellent facilities. Use again no problem.
We were very lucky to find this booking last minute after a disappointing booking nearby. Love, love, love this site spotlessly clean facilities, beautifully tended gardens and fully serviced pitches the only downside is that we are only booked for 1 night. Highly recommend this site x
Well, where do we begin to tell you all what a fabulous site The Ashes in Kendal is. The booking process was excellent, Rachel was very helpful and managed to extend our booking at very short notice. We arrived on site, to be welcomed by Fred, what a wonderful person he is, not only did he show us to our pitch, but he also helped us to unhook and set up: this has never happened before at any site we have stayed at. Nothing was too much trouble, we felt very valued as customers. Val welcomed us with a pack of three, Kendal Mint Cake bars, what a lovely gesture, again this has never happened before at any site we have stayed at. Fred maintains the site to the highest of standards, the array of well-manicured flower beds and plant pots is lovely to see. The views of the countryside are breath taking, the site is very quiet, you can hear the birds sing all day long. It was lovely to see all the animals, sheep, cattle, and horses; it was fascinating to see the farmer train his sheep dogs in a field below the site. There are around 24 pitches in total, and we would say that 50% of these are seasonal pitches; the seasonal caravaners are all warm and welcoming. The pot wash facilities are spotless and even though there is only one sink, we never saw any queues. The toilet and shower facilities are maintained to a very high standard, there are two showers in total but again even though the site was full there was never any queues to use them; Showers and toilets are cleaned between 4-5, we personally thought this was an excellent idea as we like to take things easy when on holiday. We will return to The Ashes as it is an excellent location for anyone wishing to tour the Lake District and Yorkshire Moors. Thank you Val, Fred and Natalie for making our stay so enjoyable.
An amazing Platinum Jubilee picnic organised by Val, Fred and Rachel for all the caravanners and local people from the village. Wonderful afternoon, thank you for making this such a special event.
What a wonderful peaceful site so glad we came across it.. we will definitely be returning as soon as we can. Excellent dog play area. Grounds spotless and well maintained. Owners are so helpful they go out of their way to help you enjoy your stay
An absolute diamond of a park , fabulous scenery spotless facilities, and park. Sych a lovely, friendly welcome , thank you Fred for your help. We will definitely be returning
What a great site. It is in the perfect location with stunning scenery. The facilities were spotless and the hosts Val and Fred were lovely. I emailed to ask for a pitch near the shower block for medical reasons and we were right next door. Perfect pitch for us. We will definitely be back, many thanks.
Lovely, small site, perfectly kept. The owners are both very welcoming & helpful, even gave us a selection of Kendal mint cake on arrival. Showers & toilets are immaculate, the fenced in dog run was perfect for our two to run around & let off steam. The wi-if was excellent- kept our fire stick going with no issues. Nothing but fields around the site, gorgeous views & the only noise was from the sheep. We only stayed two nights but wished it was longer. We’ll definitely be back soon.
Another Spring at the Ashes Caravan Park; so glad to be back. Quiet, restful surroundings, beautifully clean shower block and ever helpful Fred, Rachel and Val. Happy 2022!
Stayed here last week during Easter. It was a very last minute booking for myself and a friend with our camper vans. Not only where the views surrounding the area stunning but the park itself was amazing. On arrival we were made to feel very very welcome getting given Kendal cake to try for the first time and the facilities are some of the best I’ve ever stayed at. The showers and toilets were always getting cleaned and the underfloor heating was a bonus! Each pitch had everything you could have wanted and if it’s something you look for the wifi was also brilliant. Overall the stay was fantastic and we ended up staying an extra night than we thought because of it! Couldn’t recommend more and we will 100% returning. Thank you for the lovely stay!
This caravan park is set amongst the most stunning scenery and is spotlessly clean throughout. Val was most accommodating and found us a space so we could arrive on Saturday evening then move to another pitch for a further 3 nights. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return again in the future.
Well what can I say we had a fantastic holiday peace and quiet toilet and shower block very high standard lovely for the dog would recommend and a big thank you to Valerie and Fred for making us welcome and a big thank you to Fred for helping with the awning .
Thanks for a warm welcome..the place was super clean and well kept.. absolute pleasure to stay here..10 out of 10 Rob & Deb

Our first stay in the Swaledale shepherds hut. Absolutely fantastic accommodation, Amazing layout in the hut and includes own bathroom with shower. Have booked to stay again as we loved it so much. Thank you Val and Fred 10/10
We booked 2 overnights separated by a weekend at this delightful site nestling in the hills. On each occasion we were greeted promptly and efficiently and quickly directed to our pitch. A sense of peace and oneness with the clouds and landscape soon swept over us. The facilities were kept spotless. A return for a longer stay is definitely on the TO DO list. Thankyou so much for providing this site!
