Our 3rd holiday at Irt Cottage, and another great week in this fabulous location. We love Wasdale, as there are so many routes for walking, high fells or pastoral valleys. It's great to know our dogs are welcome and easy to manage as they sleep by the back door.

Irt Cottage has every convenience we could need, including good WiFi to browse our next walking area and stay in touch , and everything is always clean and comfortable. I'm sure we'll be back before long!!...Read less.

Caravan we stayed in was great. The site itself was very well presented with a lovely woodland walk and excellent pubs nearby.

Shame the cafe/shop was closed though. As that was the only WIFI hotspot, I would have definitely purchased a few coffees and cakes whilst waiting for my friends to arrive.

Would love to return one day.

Staff could not be more accommodating.

We had an issue before we came that meant we would not be able to stay for the two nights camping that had originally been planned. After ringing to explain the situation and asking if we could swap for one night in a camping pod, staff could not have been more helpful and kindly let us swap.

The campsite itself was great. There's a footpath that leads directly off from the campsite making it a great place for a dog walk. There's plenty of room for children to play and the facilities were great.

The camping pod itself was really clean and very spacious (we were two adults and one child).

On site fires are allowed and fire pits can be provided if required.

I would definitely stay here again :)...Read less.

We stayed for a walking week mainly due to location and completing the Wainwright Western Fells. Have stayed many times before over the years and the park remains consistently good, everything we needed for what we were doing. It does seem that the park has expanded since our last visit with more static homes and glamping pods and the NHU campers have been pushed out into the less "glamorous" fields but to compensate the views were probably better. The only issue, as usual, was the Friday night when the revellers come in and create a lot of noise. We were surprised to see a very loud party going on outside one of the statics, then a group of young men starting a (contained) fire after 11pm, then continuing to sit outside their tents talking and laughing loudly until after midnight. We originally came to this site because of problems at other sites, Church Stile was always well controlled. It says in the rules no noise after 11pm and that checks are carried out, but in this case there were obviously no such checks. There was also a drunken lady screaming and shouting until the early hours. Despite this we enjoyed the rest of the week and would certainly consider coming again, it is a great location and the site has very good facilities at a reasonable price....Read less.

We had never been to this side of the lakes before and was pleasantly surprised on how beautiful the area is. The caravan park is in a great setting and the van was relatively new and spotless and clean, although there was a problem with the central heating ( a funny smell which wouldn't go away ) and also with the shower which was dealt with promptly. There was also an unpleasant smell in the shower room. This said the staff were very good and helpful. The pubs in the village were very good too.

Church Stile is a fine campsite in a great location. The reception area and shop are excellent. If I have one minor gripe, it is the blanket ban on dogs being allowed off leads.

Really attractive campsite in stunning location. Ideal for exploring the western Lake District although it’s a bit of a trek to get to the core parts of the Lake District. Really handy for Wasdale and hiking in that area.

Campsite is laid out nicely. Toilets are clean, and showering facilities are good. Plenty of hot water.

Dishwashing facilities are good. Depending on where you’re pitched, though, the facilities block could be a little trek.

Plenty of water taps throughout the site.

Security good. Cafe/shop on site is a good addition because there’s little else in Nether Wasdale. There’s a decent convenience store in Gosforth though, which is 15 minutes drive away.

Will possibly return to the area but not for some time. Would recommend the site to anyone looking for a site in this area.

Not the site’s fault but phone signal is poor and therefore internet through 4G or 3G is non existent. There is WiFi at the cafe but nothing throughout the site. Given that a large number of folk will want to plan days out, walks, and therefore look at up to date weather forecasts, having WiFi throughout the site could be a useful improvement....Read less.

A bit of a trek to get to but well worth it.

Very near to Waswater which was great on a hot weekend for a paddle and swim and at night we could sit and stare at the stars. We would have hired a fire pit, but were told none were left.

This was our second stay at church stile and again we had a great stay. The only issue we had was that the very small freezer available to campers for ice blocks was too small for the number of campers and didn’t work for the whole 4 days we were there. This meant a fair amount of the food we took with us went off with the warm bank holiday weather. I imagine it works fine during less busy times but when the site is full the only option is to buy food as you go along which becomes expensive and not always practical. Don’t get me wrong, we’ll still go back but perhaps at a less busy time or if an electric hook up is available....Read less.

Our 3rd stay at Church stile over the last 10 years, returning with now grown up children! The site remains well kept and peaceful, it has a quiet after 10.30 rule which is generally observed. The site has grown a little but still has a small campsite feel. the refitted toilet block and shop/café show the owners continue to invest in the site. In an area near the bins there is a persistent smell from an on site sewage system however this may have been due to heavy rain fall and could not be smelt from our camping area so a minor issue which does not detract from the main reason for staying at Church stile - the stunning location, it is in the quieter western Lakes area and surrounded by hills with Wasdale head at the other end of the lake and access to superb walking. There are no evening entertainments, no pool, no caravans but you can hire a fire pit and sit with mountains and stars - perfect!...Read less.

On arrival in Gosforth our sat nav said we had arrived, we took the directions from the website so this may be something that needs updating, however once we had traversed the lanes we entered into the village and into the campsite. The location we were offered was good, near to the water tap. We booked late so no electric hook up but this did not cause an issue. The site is clean, very quiet at night. The only improvements could be some lighting (not bright) to aid the walk to the toilets in the dead of night. The reception carried a good supply of goods, and not overpriced which was nice to see. The local pubs were good, good food and beer at reasonable prices. We spent most of the day time at the lake which is beautiful, quiet and relaxing, especially with glorious weather.

Very impressed with the staff, they were friendly and extremely helpful. Great shop with cafe.

I know we visited on a hot, busy Bank Holiday but tent pitches were not clearly defined and our neighbours, 3 tents plus cars and windbreaks spilled over. I understand that privacy is not probable on a camp site but felt that the site was too overcrowded, even taking in to consideration it was Bank Holiday. I also felt the position of some tents was a fire hazard. Unfortunately this would put me off revisiting....Read less.

Thank you for your feedback. We do have an excellent team of staff working at Church Stile. The non-electric camping is very informal and most people like this aspect as it means that people that want to pitch together can. We do tell people not to pitch too close to neighbouring tents but if people are together they sometimes cluster. We didn't notice that they had pitched too close to your campervan hardstanding but if you had come in and spoken to a member of the team we would have certainly come and assessed the situation. We are sorry that you feel it impinged on your enjoyment of such a wonderfully sunny Bank Holiday weekend....Read less.

We had an amazing Bank Holiday weekend at this campsite. The weather was perfect and the area beautiful. The staff were friendly and helpful, everywhere was clean and thd shop was well stocked. The only slightly negative point was that there aren't any lights around the campsite which makes walking around after dark very tricky, and means people tend to go to bed very early and we felt we couldn't talk! You are asked to be quiet after 11 but from 9 the campsite was very quiet and we felt self conscious talking! It is a lovely site though and I would recommend it for a quiet weekend....Read less.

I am very sorry that you had a noisy group next to you for the last few nights of your stay. We do know the group you are referring to as we did speak to them on multiple occasions during the evening patrol and they have subsequently been blacklisted from returning. The group you are referring to were part of a group of families that were staying in various accommodation options. They were told on booking that we have a "no noise between 11pm and 7am " policy and the site is patrolled at night. Unfortunately, whilst they promised to be respectful of our site rules the reality of their behaviour was very different. However, whilst we police the site as best we can, had we received complaints about them from other campers we would have asked them to leave. Incidentally, they also gave us a bad review on another forum complaining that the staff were rude for asking them to keep the noise down....Read less.

Chose this site to spend a few days camping with the family and our 2 dogs and we weren't disappointed. It was nice and quiet with good facilities and its nearness to the Cumbrian coast and access to many nearby walks and lakes. There was a good woodland walk on the camp that went up a rise to give wonderful views towards Wast Water and Scafell pike. The shop provided a range of local produce and bread and the washroom was kept very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful with good local knowledge to provide expert advice if needed. We would definately recommend this site

Within a 5 minute walk from the campsite were 2 local pubs providing a good range of food and beers etc, although we found The Scree to be the cheaper priced of the 2 but still good value for money

I stayed in one of the shepherd's huts on this site, comfortable, clean, well laid out. The staff were very friendly and only too happy to help with directions I enquired about.

My one constructive suggestion is a small change to the leaflet or location driving instructions - the arrow @ present is between Ravenglass and Gosforth. If it could be moved so that it is clear that one should turn off the A595 @ Gosforth it might make it easier to find. Following my sat nav's instructions took me off before Gosforth and I appeared to be heading for a campsite called "The Old Post Office camp site". I came to Church Stile entrance eventually, but I was tempted to turn round thinking the sat nav had sent me down the wrong road....Read less.

With excellent fell walking and scenery on the doorstep this site is definitely worth considering. It is in the heart of the village a short stroll to two local pubs with menus.

You can get a big sack of wood from the camp shop for a fire pit, which they even deliver to your tent. Only £4. The woodland walk was brilliant for the kids and our dog. It is a lot bigger than any other campsite dog walk we've been to. The amount of walks on your door Step is fantastic. The village pubs serve gorgeous food at a very reasonable price. They brew their own ale too. Wast water is just breathtakingly beautiful and so close. So many things to do in the area. Cannot wait to return. Absolutely brilliant find....Read less.

I was really happy with our stay at the Church Stile campsite and would totally recommend it, particularly if you are looking for something away from the crowds during peak season. We arrived after the reception had shut (long drive, delays on the motorway), and the staff had left everything we needed in a poly pocket taped to the reception door, so that we could find our spot.

The camping fields are pretty level and sheltered, and each is fairly small, which makes it a more friendly camping experience than those with the bigger spaces. It's a lovely setting, nestling in a valley between some stunning mountains. Nether Wasdale is about 2 miles from Wastwater, which is one of the wilder lakes of the region, and also close to the beautiful Esk valley - I recommend a walk up the Esk to Tongue Pot and the waterfalls. There are plenty of walks you can do from the campsite itself.

The Church Stile also has the best showers I have ever experienced at a campsite. The cubicles are large and each has a bench for clothes, etc, and hooks; water temperature and pressure just perfect. There's room for parents with young children and a place for your clean clothes - hallelujah!

The campsite shop / cafe was also pretty good - pastries in the morning, or some cooked breakfast items; sausage rolls and frittata from the deli counter (which were a good addition to our picnics).

We had a small issue with our booking - the electrical hook up had been missed - but it was sorted out on site, with no quibble, efficiently, and in a way that suited us perfectly.

For those who want to keep waste to a minimum - there is recycling on site for glass, cans and cardboard, but not tetrapaks or plastic bottles (AFAIK) and no food waste facilities - but are there ever, at campsites? Would be nice to have a freecycle / swap space for camping items etc that people no longer want, perhaps?...Read less.

A place to sit in the bedroom also and to do your hair if needed with a mirror. A bedside lamp! Warm on cold days and enough fresh air when windows were opened. Enough plugs. Information about surrounding area/activities kindly placed in accommodation. Kitchen and showroom immaculate. Upholstery and carpets colour choice was divine - lovely and light and fresh and the views from this static caravan were just outstanding!

Thank you for your feedback. The shower block gets a check (wipe down, bins emptied, toilet rolls and hand towels replenished) multiple times during the day, especially during busy periods which is probably what you observed. The toilets get cleaned properly during the middle of the day, when most people are out and about, and the showers are pressure washed at least once a week.

The toilet/shower block was always spotless and I never had to wait to use the facilities. A small playground kept the children entertained and the camp shop sold a small range of necessities.

Bear in mind that there is very, very limited wifi (only at the camp shop) and I had no phone signal either. It's quite remote but 2 pubs just outside the entrance have good menus...Read less.

Lovely location in middle of nowhere, peaceful. Just what we wanted, got a lot busier on our last day there but it was start of school holidays, only downside was some yapping dogs. Wash facilities very very good and free too. Everything you could want. Shop is good too for supplies and free WiFi, two local pubs are within 2 minutes and have amazing food and beer with real ales. Scenery is stunning and walks plentiful, lake walks are amazing, will definitely go back. The local roads are interesting to say the least, very narrow and of course totally different to city driving, loved every day we were there for, 5 days in total....Read less.

Church Stile Farm isnt too much or too little of everything you need for a lake district base for your short or long holiday.

Camping, caravanning, pods, sheperds huts and statics available. Great little shop also serving breakfasts, baps and bacon butties.

The Strand & Screes pubs are literally on your doorstep. Highly reccommend the Screes for being warm and friendly & serve fantastic food at very reasonable prices.

Close to Scafell and other amazing peaks & walks, though my children hated me for taking them up Scafell pike! they'll thank me one day.

Church Stile gets 5 stars overall from us.

This is my 4th stay at Churchstile and I love it. The staff are very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble.

Only thing I would say is maybe move the children’s play field away from the quiet areas. I was in the small enclave near the pods but there was a continual stream of children running through. not easy to stop kids (I have 3) but maybe make it more defined quiet space.

We will be returning soon!...Read less.

Unfortunately our stay was severely disrupted as were other campers nearby by the positioning of a large group booking of about 4 families all being situated next to us. This allowed for late partying, loud conversations during the day and evening. Ball games being played around everyone's pitches. This ruined the tranquil setting and the peace that the site promised. Our first days stay was amazing, the rest were very spoilt, stressful & greatly disappointing. We feel when taking group booking consideration should be given to individual family that are nearby. We felt that the site was not patrolled enough, if this had been the case this situation would have been recognised....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.

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. It is very handy for Egremont which is why I was in the area....Read less.

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.

When we were packing to leave, we thought about coming back 😊 Place worth recommending for any stay length: caravan or tent.

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. No signal at all but this was perfect for us as we wanted to switch off for 5 days. Thanks for a great stay and we will return again one day!...Read less.

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.

Fabulous site, will definitely come again, great pub just a short walk away too! Lovely walk around the river with the dog. The only very small issue was that I booked a large pitch and upon arrival was told there would be room for my car to park alongside the tent, however there was not as each tent in the field were large family tents, it was no big deal, however a little more room might have been nice after paying extra for a large pitch....Read less.

Stayed end April and were only a handful of people the night we stayed so can't comment on what it'd be like on an average summers weekend but was very quiet and peaceful and toilets and shower facilities are great, basic but very clean and plenty of them! Dish washing facilities maybe could be improved over time. Really warm and informative welcome at reception, no issue with us checking in early (although again that may be as it was quiet). Well sign posted and easy to find...Read less.

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.

I have camped at this site for well over 20 years. It has always been an excellent site but the owners have constantly reinvested to improve facilities for campers.

Second time visited campsite-both times in Spring. Had stayed at the NT campsite is Wasdale before but found facilities not as good. Of particular concern was that the NT campsite didn't heat their toilet/shower block and in spring: can be cold that time of year, where as Church Stile was lovely and warm.

Simple things like bench tables to sit on were useful as well as the camp shop/cafe.

Always very neat and tidy. Excellent value for money!!!!...Read less.

I have been a regular visitor to Church Stile campsite now for many years. It was good when I first visited, but over the years it has been developed and improved, without losing its charm and character as a friendly, family-run site. The owners, and team that run the site are lovely and will always do their best to help, they have an excellent little shop/cafe/breakfast bar; and the nearby pub(s) in the village (both under the same management) offer superb food and real ales. There are countryside walks starting right from the campsite, and Wasdale Head is just a short drive away for access to the higher fells....Read less.
