Kirkby Lonsdale Rugby Club Camping

8.4

This park does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Spacious and simple site in a 30-acre Cumbrian country park
  • Five minutes' walk to Kirkby Lonsdale for pubs, shops and a market
  • Walk to Ruskin's View for spectacular views across the Lune valley

Scrum down and stay in hilly splendour at Kirkby Lonsdale Rugby Club Camping. Fear not, you won't be woken by 15 burly blokes chasing a ball: the club makes its home in Underley Park, some 30 acres of lush nature between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District.

Art critic John Ruskin declared this region 'one of the loveliest views in England, therefore the world' when he saw the scenes painted of it by Turner: you'll likely not argue with that on your hikes around the surrounding land, especially to Ruskin's View: sky-high panoramas will be yours for the snapping, with views right across the Lune valley.

Hose your mucky self down back at base, where the club's showers and washrooms are well praised by visitors. And then to bed... with such a spacious site, there's plenty of room to pitch up and lose yourself in the Cumbrian countryside, even though it's only a five-minute walk from the centre of Kirkby Lonsdale.

Guests are welcome to use the players' gym for an extra fee.

    The amazing view.

    Disliked: 

    Only facilities were rugby club toilets; showers & changing room. No toilet seats; just bare pot toilets and these were also in use by the team training which were then left filthy. Smell of broken drains and only 1 water tap for the whole site. No warden & no security - you are just left in limbo. £30 per night is an absolute rip off for this site with only EHU.

    Facilities. Price.
    On the PitchUp website they claimed only 3 places left. The site was deserted when we arrived!!
    We hunted out a cleaner in the Rugby club who claimed the Camping season was supposed to be over. According to the PitchUp website it still had 5 days left.
    The rugby club changing room was our showers and toilet...communal arrangement and freezing!
    We had electrical hook up, as thankfully the electricity hadn't been cut off.
    We were charged £30 by PitchUp which was a rip off. £10 would have been too much!

    Look carefully at the reviews. The positive ones cannot be relied upon. Never again.

The view….09/26/2022

    The view….

    Disliked: 

    We didn’t see any staff for 3 or 4 days. The drain from the toilet block has failed/is blocked. Foul smelling soak away was heading to our pitch after rainfall. Fencing around soak away inadequate. No steps up the bank to the toilet block - Dangerous.
    Loud and excessive noise including fighting from clubhouse. No warning when booking about planned Young Farmers party which we were advised was a “sit down” event, it was clearly a disco until way after 12. We think late season charge of £30 per night is overpriced, it needs to be £10-£15 max, as all we are paying for is HU.A significant amount of money needs to be spent on making this site acceptable and pleasurable. Several couples left early due to the noise. H&S and Enviromental Health would have a field day. It’s a shame, as this could easily be a great place.

Local attractions

There's a bit of a scrum over Kirkby Lonsdale, with the Lakes, the Dales and even the Forest of Bowland all claiming the town as their gateway… and why not indeed…

There are many fine old inns among the 17th- and 18th-century houses of this handsome old market town, and visitors to the 11th-century church should find peace and reflection. With the river flowing right through, you're well placed to go fishing or paddle a canoe downstream; paths make for excellent easy riverside rambling too.

Head half an hour north and you'll hit Windermere. Take in the view, then take a walk: at the top of the lake, Ambleside (45 minutes' drive) is a hub for many paths up the high tarns and fells.

Clamouring for your attention to the east, the three peaks of the Yorkshire Dales are in easy reach, with Ingleborough closest (half an hour). If you don't fancy going up, head down to the fab caves instead. Meanwhile, armchair adventurers can settle in a comfy berth on the scenic Settle-Carlisle railway starting in, er, Settle (an hour's drive) or see the lakes from the decks of a steamer on Windermere.

Must see

  • Levens Hall & Gardens (8.0 miles)
  • Sizergh Castle and Garden (8.8 miles)
  • Lancaster Castle (13.7 miles)

National Trust
