We've stayed at Church Stile several times now and are very happy with the site. It's in a quiet corner of the Lakes with the Wasdale Valley just down the road. There are a couple of pubs just a few minutes' walk away, both serving excellent food and ale.

The only thing missing from the site is a drying room, for those odd occasions when it rains in the Lakes!...Read less.

We typically prefer smaller/quiet sites and usually travel out of peak season, so this was one of the biggest, and by far the busiest sites we've stayed at. This obviously made it pretty noisy (from our point of view) - from groups of kids playing to people chatting (not very loudly but nearby, because it was so busy), both late into the night and early the next morning.

There aren't a lot of toilets/showers for so many people but we didn't have to queue at all. The facilities were modern and clean, repeatedly checked throughout the day/evening.

There is a small section of woodland on the site for exercising dogs.

The reception/shop sells fresh bread & local ice cream, which was a treat. It was open until well into the evening too. All the staff we met were friendly.

The village pubs are less than a minute's walk from the site entrance - good food & drink selection.

Obviously excellent walking opportunities nearby and we enjoyed swimming in Wastwater too.

We'll probably return at some point - but would stick to quieter times to avoid the crowds....Read less.

It’s location is virtually on the edge of one of my favourite lakes Wasdale. A short walk takes you to the water and inspiring views.

The only thing for me was the distance from the tent pitch to the toilet /shower was a reasonable walk specially at night & when u have blisters from walking seemed a bit odd that static vans were near to the facilities when they have no need to be.

Great for walks or a drive to some absolutely incredible scenery. Well laid out and everything was pretty clean. Pitches were in good condition and generally had a nice atmosphere. I visited on a bank holiday and it seemed very popular with kids, on my second visit it was much emptier and very peaceful. There is a pub within staggering distance (200m) that serves pretty good food and another one opposite which I didn't visit but looked ok. I have been there twice now and may well return.

We enjoyed our stay throughout. Although it was a short stay, we took advantage of local walks and attractions. Park is located in beautiful surrounding and has got sense of ambience about it. Place was not overcrowded but peaceful, without loud entertainment facilities one may enjoy but this is how we prefer. To keep focus on nature and people without need of distraction.

The shop facilities were more than enough with plenty of local produce. And staff was more than friendly, helpful and accommodating in every aspect.

The only reason we wouldn’t come again is because we mostly camped here for scafell pike, unfortunately it was too far To travel for our other activities that we planned, therefore only spent 1 day within the immediate area.

Some feedback is that in the week we camped here there wasn’t many other campers and loads of pitches empty but 3 times we had new neighbours, there was loads of spaces remaining yet they kept getting pitched right next to us.

We would’ve preferred everyone spaced out, we would’ve mentioned this but didn’t expect the 2nd or 3rd new neighbours and thought surely they would be pitched elsewhere with all the room. I’m not sure if this is something to do with keeping other pitches unused to maintain them/use them less.

Apart from this it’s an excellent camp site, ensure you bring strong pegs (we use aldi’s and they didn’t once lift) as it was VERY windy and you’re quite exposed in the open field....Read less.

Once we arrived at our caravan and we had started to unpack we realised there was everything we needed and more to fulfil what we wanted to be a self catering holiday (plus a night at the local pub for dinner). It was cosy and comfortable and the beds were a dream. All very clean. We went here as it was local to climb scafell pike and it was very local and all the local walks were just beautiful! The farm shop had all sorts of goodies in and it catered for all. There are 2 very local pubs just outside the gate.

We loved the cosiness of the shepherd's hut. It was beautifully decorated and very clean, with plenty of wood for the woodburner. Having electricity was brilliant, so we brought our own toaster. We also appreciated the unexpected addition of a kettle, washing up bowl and liquid etc. The light provided was efficient, and we were glad we remembered a torch because the site is very dark during the nighttime.

Initial enquiries about booking were dealt with very helpfully over the phone by Brian. Our drive to the site should’ve taken just over five hours, but instead took nine due to Friday (BH weekend) traffic 🤦🏻‍♀️ I rang ahead to say we might not get to the site before 8pm and, again, Brian was very helpful and understanding. On arrival we were welcomed by very friendly staff, and Brian introduced himself. The site is in a lovely spot, a working sheep farm, surrounded by trees, hills and mountains. We bought homemade lamb & mint pies for our ‘late dinner’ which were ‘proper pies’! 👍🏼 We really couldn’t fault the site on any aspect, and other more experienced campers we spoke to said the facilities were like ‘glamping’ in comparison to other sites they’d used previously. The shop stocked everything you could possibly need as well as being a cafe providing hot drinks and breakfasts if you'd rather not use your own stove for a change! Would definitely recommend the site - walking distance to two lovely pubs too! - and hope to visit again 👍🏼👍🏼😊...Read less.

Wonderful site in a picturesque location. This place could not have been more perfect if you want the peace and quiet of the Wasdale area, and an ideal base for walking the local fells.

The site itself is spotless and well kept, with clean facilities and free hot showers.

The shop is well stocked, and the staff are very welcoming and friendly.

The dog walking area leads up to the most amazing views across the valley, with a public footpath that I assume ends up somewhere near the lake.

My only issue is with the single road from the shop to the actual site, a bit awkward when 2 cars end up front to front with limited places to turn/pull in, and nowhere for pedestrians to be as cars pass.

Other than that I would recommend this site to anyone. We're hoping to book in again later in the year 🙂...Read less.

Perhaps on the more expensive side. £22 for a two night stay seems slightly above average but the location made-up for that. There are A LOT of rules and terms and when we first arrived, we felt quite on edge. A bar would be good on site as this would give you a chance to socialise with other campers.

Great site with very good facilities. Great staff who are very friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the local area. The little shop in the reception building is equipped with basic essentials you might need, food and equipment, plus has the bonus of freshly baked pastries, breakfast snacks and yummy local ice cream! The showers are free and the cubicles are large with space to get dressed. There is a little laundry room but we didn’t use that. The park is great for all ages and has plenty of equipment and space to play, there is also a small field for ball games.

The local village has a couple of pubs on the doorstep and there is a shop within driving distance. This area of the Lakes is quiet and unspoilt, not at all like the more popular tourist areas such as Windermere. There are loads of walks to try, mountains to climb, water to paddle in and other villages to explore. It really is worth the extra travelling time for a more authentic Lake District experience....Read less.

We stayed in Irt Cottage for a week which was warm, clean and comfortable. The location offers walks for all abilities and many of the walks that we did were from the cottage doorstep. Wasdale Head is a 10 minute drive away, from where you can access many of England's iconic mountains including Scafell Pike, Sca Fell, Great Gable, Kirk Fell, Steeple and Pillar. The Strands and Screes pubs are a few minutes walk away for good food and beers. we enjoyed the stay and are looking forward to going back....Read less.

What an amazing gem of a place. Ok so it's a caravan park but not a caravan park in the sense that it is blissfully quiet. The van I rented for a very decent £50 per night was incredible. It looked brand new inside. They even make the beds up for you. It is situated in the quieter part of the western lake district. Two proper pubs within walking distance. Phone signal is minimal at best but who cares about that. Great base for local walks, western lakes and Scalfell Pike. I will definately be returning next year....Read less.

We enjoyed a 4 night stay here.

Pro's: Park was clean and a decent farm shop for supplies. Herdwick lamb burgers were delicious. Pitches well laid out and a good woodland walk to explore on site.

Con's: Grass could be cut on pitches more regularly, grass was very long. Showers could be hotter, I found them Luke warm at best, even when I was the only one showering at the time.

We were in the furthest field away and on our own from the facilities. It would have been nicer if we were closer to the washrooms, especially when there were so many empty pitches in between.

The campsite is great. Lovely green, large pitches, clean facilities and a wonderfully stocked shop/cafe. The staff are super helpful and friendly too. We hired a pod which was also spotlessly clean. However, it desperately needs at least some hooks and small shelves. I understand that it is camping with everything but the tent, however, a tent at least has pockets where you can put keys, hang a light or put your toothbrushes. Where do people hang their damp clothes?! The lights are very bright so unusable after my daughter went to bed or when going to the toilet in the night. The green space outside Pod 2 is less that you'd get with a camping pitch. It's great to get a picnic table though. Anyway, we did have a lovely stay and I hope our feedback helps!...Read less.

Been to this campsite a few times now and enjoyed every single moment of our stay on each occasion.

It has been lovely to see the campsite grow since it has been in the current ownership.

The owners are so lovely and friendly and hands on involved with the guests and general running of the site and the staff employed are also kind friendly and very helpful.

Can’t praise this site enough and just wish we could have more holidays to be able to spend quality family time here.

There is limited mobile phone service in the area generally and free WiFi facility from the small well stocked shop with charging facilities and seating areas. So nice to get away from social media and technology of current life unwind and relax.

We camped in Fletchers field in the overflow field and we had ample room for our large tent, some parts were a little stoney underneath so some rock pegs may have been handy.

I had emailed the campsite due to having no luck online finding a pitch with an electricit hook up for 12hours time, within the hour I received information and a contact number to which I called and there was a VERY welcoming and polite young lady who explained that the campsite owners had managed to organise a last minute pitch for us. I have to say I think it was the best pitch in the house. We had a view of the forest and the mountains from inside the tent with the door open! All the staff at the campsite where approachable, friendly and helpful. All the on site facilities where kept clean and easy to use and the shop is reasonably priced, great ice cream too. Will be back next year we hope. Thank you for an amazing week....Read less.

We stayed over two nights as a small group of friends heading up to climb the nearby Scaffell Pike. The surrounding area is lovely and the views in Wasdale are amazing. There are two pubs in the local village so we ate there one night and were impressed by menu choice and food quality. The staff who checked us in were very helpful and also gave us some tips for our climb up Scaffell! The reception and shop on site are well stocked with a wide range of things. There was no phone signal or wifi on the camp site which I found nice to switch off for a few days! There was wifi at reception that you can use for anyone who can't go without! On the route to the site, my satnav took my through some quite steep and winding roads so I would avoid this way if you arriving late at night or in the dark.

Fantastic location with amazing walks from the site. Showering facilities always spotless and laundry facilities appreciated as mid point in our touring holiday. Staff go out of their way to be helpful. Everything is well organised and pitches feel quite secluded and private, despite the size and number of people there. The quality of food and service at the local pub was amazing and ice cream in the shop on site a well deserved treat after a long walk. The one draw back for us was the noise from the children - only because we no longer have young children and now appreciate a quiet tranquil setting. However, it was quiet at night, and the children were just enjoying their holiday, so not a big issue. A great family location....Read less.

Pre-paid and booked in with a party. Arrived after a very long drive to find a long check-in queue and nowhere to park at the entrance. We knew where we had been allocated (having been with the Morrish party for around 20 years) and drove to that specific field.

30 minutes or so later I returned to the reception to confirm our attendance and pay the balance. I was scolded like a small child for disobeying the camp rules, 3 times. I apologised on each occasion and promised it would not happen again. I informed the lady that I thought my actions would be of assistance, given the size of the queue. And I was surprised at how little empathy I got following a long and tiring journey.

It worries me that what I once knew as a personal and friendly family run camp site, may be turning into an impersonal business. Many camp sites have that feel to them. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come....Read less.

After visiting the village we returned later to find there was only one other tent in the field pitched as close as possible to ours!!! We were not best pleased, and they had piled all their gear onto the picnic table. we regained use of said table, upon which our neighbours walked to the opposite end of the field and carted a table which they then put under their awning !

If the field was full it was not a problem, but maybe you could add to your list of rules, 'pitch far away from others when possible' or something along those lines. We were incredulous!! there is nowt as queer as folk thats for sure....Read less.

We've stayed at Church Stile on several occasions and always found the facilities and site to be clean and well-kept. As the site is set in a small village in the Lake District, the approach roads are single track with passing places in some cases. This is not a real problem as the village is generally very quiet. Touring pitches are available for tents and motor homes; whilst the services are accessible, a dedicated motor home service area would be helpful. Sometimes we find the pitch numbering a little confusing so this could be improved.
