Spacious tent pitches

General

  • Family-friendly site on the edge of the southern Lake District
  • Handy location a mile from the M6 and a 15-minute drive from Kendal
  • Well-maintained site with bar, picnic area, pool table and TV room

Lake, forest, and spectacular countryside… what’s not to like about this fantastic setting in the southern Lake District? Add in level pitches, a goodly collection of facilities and a friendly welcome on site and you should be all set for a fab family break at Waters Edge Caravan Park.

Because of its handy location close to the M6, this is a nifty spot for getting out to all of the Lake District and Yorkshire, or even popping up to Scotland (it's only an hour's drive away). After day trips, head over to the clubhouse to ponder the fine selection of beers and spirits in the well-stocked bar – if the sun’s out, take them out to sip in the fresh air on the patio. There's a friendly vibe at this place, so just try not to get too competitive playing pool with new pals or watching sport together in the TV lounge.

For food, you may like to create a picnic or fire up one of the barbecues over by reception (pick up bits at the shop on site or set out for a well-stocked store half a miles away. Not in the mood to cater? Make a break for meals at the pub a couple of minutes' walk away.

Other amenities around the place include outdoor taps for your drinking water, a washing-up area, a laundry room and bathrooms with individual washing cubicles, showers and accessible toilets.

    Really enjoyed our stay at Waters Edge. Lovely small, quiet campsite. Bathroom facilities are well kept. Friendly staff. Close to a hotel/restaurant that serves good food. There’s also plenty to do around the area. The weather wasn’t the best but that’s always a risk when you’re camping, we still enjoyed ourselves. Thanks!

    Disliked: 

    The bar area wasn’t open but we were aware of this before and it’s quite understandable due to the current Covid restrictions :)

    Pleasant site, great location, not too big so not a lot of coming and going. The gentleman who greeted us when we arrived was v friendly and most helpful. Never used the facilities as we have our own so unable to comment. Would use this site again and/or recommend to others.

Not a bad site with clean facilities.14/09/2020

Reviewer's country: United Kingdomsuzanne d.Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Not a bad site with clean facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Facilities are quite a distance from the tent pitches and very near to caravan/motor home/static pitches which doesn't make sense as they will all have toilet facilities anyway.

    They must have had some rain previous as the ground for tent pitches was very wet and muddy (I guess you have to expect that in September).

    Very noisy campers at night, I think there was a party going on in one tent until quite late with no effort to keep the noise down, No point complaining to the staff as the staff was present?

    Overall not a bad site but nothing for children to do. It seems to me that this site is mainly for tourers and statics that have a bit of grassland so are trying to get extra income from there.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Head into Kendal (15 minutes' drive) for golf days or to shelter indoors at the local leisure centre, which has a pool, squash and gym. You may also like to take wanders around the town's castle ruins and museums or pop in for a pint (or a tour) at Hawkshead Brewery.

Hop on horseback and make your own great western adventures in the surrounding woodland and countryside with the nearest horse riding centre (10 minutes' drive). If water-based antics are more your thing, it's a 15-minute drive to a lake for waterskiing, windsurfing, sailing and fishing. Or keep an eye out to see what's on at the Westmorland County Showground (10 minutes' walk), which often stages smashing family-friendly events.

If you fancy exploring the wider region, it's an easy drive to Morecambe Bay beach (20 minutes), and the Yorkshire Dales (25 minutes). For kid-pleasing days out, aim to lose them for a while at Lakeland Maze Farm Park or head off to meet the animals at Lakeland Wildlife Oasis; both are around 10 minutes away by car.
