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!

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.

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

  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.
