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.

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!

THE ASHES,Anyone searching for a quiet peaceful spotlessly clean site this is the one for you,surrounded by rolling hills the only sounds are the bleating of sheep and the occasional call and whistle from a nearby farmer to his dog as it rounds his sheep up.From being met at the gate by Val(owner of site) escorted to our pitch and even offering help in putting our awning up in it was like home from home,Fred Vals partner was always about checking everything was ok for us.Definitely on our return to list,many thanks again Val /Fred we had a lovely week with you.11/07/2001.

This is our second visit, but with a new caravan, Val and Fred couldn’t have been more helpful when setting up new items. The site is immaculately kept in a beautiful tranquil setting, having 2 dogs with us the walks around the site, plus the on-site dog area was invaluable. The fully serviced pitch was great no more lugging water around. The site is a credit to the owners Can’t wait to return

We stayed for 5 nights and what a treat, just 4 miles from Kendal and easy access to the rest of the Lakes. Quiet well kept site and the owners couldn't be more helpful. We will be returning for sure!

The Ashes is a beautifully maintained site in a very peaceful area. Val and Fred are a lovely couple and we can only echo what everyone else has written about how helpful they are. The site is a credit to you both

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

  1. Stopped over here on route home to Scotland we were well impressed. The site was immaculate,the wardens very friendly even although they were busy cutting the grass. Toilets and washrooms spotless. Easy to pitch perfect due to concrete plinths to put wheels on for side to side level.
    Think we will be back for a longer stay.

    • Thank you so much for your great comments and feedback. It was a pleasure to have you stay with us and would love you to come and visit us again soon. We are so glad you enjoyed your time at The Ashes. Thanks again, Val.

  2. What a lovely, peaceful and friendly place to visit. From the minute you arrive you are greeted with a warm welcome by everyone, other visitors too, (and their dogs).

    The scenery is quite breath taking and the park is pristine.

    Lovely, clean showers and toilet block

    It makes for a great base to travel a little further into Windemere or we found the lovely quaint village of Kirby Lonsdale which housed one of the best bakeries and tea rooms we have ever tried.

    Many visitors to the park seemed more than happy to stay put, enjoy the beautiful sunshine and get to know their neighbours as we certainly did.

    So much so, we have booked to return already and can’t wait, see you all soon.

    • We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Ashes and look forward to seeing you again very soon. It is lovely to hear such wonderful comments and your great feedback is much appreciated. Thank you once again, Val.

  3. We recently stayed for 3 nights on route to Scotland. The site is immaculate, pitches very well maintained in a beautiful coutryside setting close to M6. Site wardens Christine and Mike very friendly and helpful. Facilities excellent standard, very clean at any time of the night or day. Peaceful, tranquil and relaxing would not hesitate to stay on this site. We met the new owner Val the site is a credit to her. A super adult only site. Onsite dog walking for the early/late night toilet stop. Thank you for a lovely few days we will be back. Carol and Gary

    • Thank you for such lovely, positive feedback. We take pride in The Ashes caravan site and are delighted to hear that you have had such a great experience with us. We look forward to seeing you again very soon. Val, Christine and Mike

  4. We were lucky enough to find availability at this ADULT ONLY site at late notice for the May Spring Bank Holidays. What a great little find it turned out to be.
    We stayed for a week accessing both the coast and the lakes during our stay. The wardens were exceptionality friendly and helpful, offering advise to a number of couples on the site.
    We will definitely visit again and would recommend this little gem. Especially if you plan to visit various places during your stay as it is only 10mins from Kendal and 35 mins from Windermere, Morecambe and Grange over sands.
    Situated in a countryside location, no shops or pubs nearby so if peace and quiet is what you crave then this is the site for you.

    • Thank you for your great comments and recommendation. Its always a pleasure having visitors to stay, especially when we receive such lovely feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back very soon. Thank you again, Val

  5. We stayed in our motorhome from 15 May 2018 for 6 nights. We had booked for 4 nights but were so impressed with the site we stayed longer. The site, facilities and views are exceptional as are the wardens Christine and Mike. If you want to stay in an Adults only, fully serviced pitch with just the sound of the birds this is the site for you. We will certainly be returning here.

    • Many thanks for your lovely comments. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Ashes, and equally glad you extended your stay with us. It was a pleasure meeting you and would love to welcome you back any time. Thanks again, Val

  6. We needed a caravan pitch for a night on our way south from Scotland and this was ideal – just a few miles from the m6, easily found and in a beautiful location. We had a lovely welcome from Mike, Christine & Val and wished we could stay longer. Everything was immaculate and lovely countryside views.
    We shall definitely use this site when going up or down the m6 and hope to come back for a longer stay soon !
    Many thanks
    Sue & Andy

    • Thanks Sue and Andy. It was a pleasure meeting you both and thank you for your great comments. We look forward to welcoming you back anytime. Thanks again, Val

  7. What a hidden gem this site is. We were searching around for a seasonal pitch when we came across The Ashes Caravan Park and from the moment we first saw it we knew it was the site for us. The site is relatively small and nicely tucked away in lovely countryside within easy access of the Lakes and the Dales National Park and, a very big plus point for us, it is for adults only. The facilities are spotless and well maintained. The site is a credit to Val, the new owner, and to the wardens Mike and Christine. Everyone is very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We hope the site will be a home to our caravan for a good few years to come.

    • Its lovely to hear your comments and we are so pleased you are happy with The Ashes. We hope you will be using our site for as long as you would like as its a pleasure to meet such lovely people. Thank you so much, Val.

  8. We really could not believe our luck when we booked a last minute stay at The Ashes.
    We arrived on a Sunday afternoon to a lovely welcome by the owner of the site. We were given a choice of pitch, Valerie brought us an information pack aswell as some delicious Kendal Mint Cake!
    The site is immaculate – the toilets and showers are pristine. Underfloor heating in the large shower rooms are a luxury.
    A most tranquil, relaxing atmosphere was obvious as we sat down for our first cuppa – taking a look at our surrounds – which are stunning. You can’t help but sigh at the sheer beauty and relaxation that is all around.
    We met the wardens on our second day, lovely people who could not be more helpful.
    The site is a credit to its owner and wardens.
    Highly recommend, we will be back as often as we are able to!

    • Thank you so much for your lovely comments. It was a pleasure having you to stay with us and we are so happy you enjoyed your time at The Ashes. It was lovely to meet you both and would love you to come back and visit. Hope to see you again soon, Val

  9. Chris and Anne, stayed 6/4/18 for a couple of nights and it was a lovely weekend, the site has a new owner who is very nice and helpful, the site is in a lovely scenic rural spot which is away from the hustle bustle of busy life, it is a clean and well looked after site for adults only, great if you want to get away from the kids and grandchildren. all the best in your new adventure.

    • Thank You Chris and Anne. We are so glad you enjoyed your weekend. Come back and visit us again soon. It was lovely to meet you both and thank you for your best wishes, Val

  11. What a brilliant site, lovely views over the rolling fields. We stayed over Easter for 7 nights, nice to watch the lambs been born in the fields. Cycled to Kendal, about 5 miles. Pub 25 minutes walk , very good food etc. Site is immaculate, spotlass and warm shower rooms with constant hot water. Toilets spotlass. The wardens Mike and his wife are so friendly and helpful.
