site not far on the main road alongside ullswater , check in done quickly only moan was that you were not shown to your pitch . Some were numbered some were not . Site was very clean as was the toilets and washrooms . Dog walking area for pet lovers . Campsite is a mix of caravans/ tents , and camping pods . Electirc pitch were very spacious . Another good point as they had a fish shop open on Friday and Saturday , bar on site though we did not try it . Would return again without hesitation ....Read less.

Booked for two nights in one of the camping cabins with my wife and son. The cabin was great with plenty of room for the three of us. The sight is in a great location, very clean and has good facilities. Very child friendly with a well equipped and safe playpark. The toilets and showers were very clean with plenty of hot water. There is a covered outdoor eating area with a microwave which is very handy. The shop is well stocked and not overpriced. There's a coffee shop and on Friday and Saturday nights a fish n chip shop. We had fish n chips on the Friday night and they were excellent and good value. There's a pub a short walk away with a soft play area. Overall the sight is great and well located for exploring the local area. We will be back....Read less.

We loved stopping in one of the cabins, It had heating (for a small charge) and lighting. The only negative we have was the bunkbeds for the children. The black foam mattresses were extremely hard, even with sleeping bags on top ( they're too small to put airbeds on). My kids had a very poor nights sleep the first night, so the 2nd night I had to put my little boy in next to me on the floor and I put our towels and an extra sleeping bag on the bunk bed for my little girl to make it more comfy.

We were right next to the park, which was great for the kids. The on site chippy was good too.

We weren't told it was up a steep bank, so be warned if you have pushchairs/ wheelchairs or young ones....Read less.

I cannot fault this site at all ..views from the top non electric field are breathtaking although that area was not as flat ..but more laid back and quiet .wifi bonus in cafe , gamesroom , bar area

I had stayed at this site previously and was happy with the location so decided to recommend to friends and go again. I booked a number of months early so we could all pitch together. I contacted the site on the day of travel as I couldnt locate booking reference and just wanted to check this would be ok. The site had made an error on the booking and didnt have one pitch reserved until the following day. I did find the staff were helpful in trying to accomodate us and it did turn out that I had a smaller tent on this ocassion. If I had been camping with my usual one it would have been impossible for the 3 families to camp together. Its a shame that the staff made this error in booking as it did spoil the overall experience and would make me concerned about booking in the future....Read less.

We stayed in cottage No 10 which had a conservatory on the year with wonderful views. Great place to read my book. On first appearance the furniture looked dated but everything was so clean and felt homely. The bathroom looked recently installed. We're not used to immersion hot water cylinder at home and wondered why water was cold til we realised we had to turn it on! Boiler was noisy when running hot water but reported to staff when we left. Beds were very hard but I've always found holiday home mattresses aren't comfy compared to home. Would definitely recommend and love to return in the future....Read less.

Our friends booked this site for caravanning and we joined them in a tent. Consequently we ended up on different parts of the site. The site was some distance from dinghy launching facilities. We booked those at Glenridding Sailing and activity Centre which were first rate. This autumn we intend to swap to a trailer sailer. It turns out that Ullswater Holiday Park have a tie up with Fairfield. If you stay on their campsite then you can park and launch your trailer sailer for £6 per day including launching. For a short stay this is brilliant and we may use it further down the line. For the next season though the guys at Glenridding have us hooked and we will base ourselves there to explore the lakes on our first season with the new boat. If you are dinghy sailing there is a decent Launderette. Staff were very flexible allowing to depart late on the last day. Wifi was the main thing that lets the place down. On O2 there is no phone signal and you have sit on one of four outdoor chairs 2ft from the bar window to get a wifi signal. In the evenings you could sit in the bar. The signal is switched off over night and comes back on again at around 07:30am. It was hard work for us planning our activites without access to forecasts....Read less.

Lack of free flowing hot water taps made it difficult when washing and rinsing dishes, to fill a sink you needed to keep your hand pressed on the tap for several minutes to fill it. The gents shower head was fixed to the wall and also to close to the wall so you could not direct the water, and the only hand dryer for seven toilets was powerless and ineffective in both ladies and gents. We visited at a very quiet time, middle of May, so not much happening on the site. it was clean the staff were very helpful and more than pleasant.

An excellent site and a real bonus to have the place virtually to ourselves. Couldn't have picked a better week.

The pitches are well spaced and we had more than enough room for our tent and awning. The ability to pre-select your pitch on a site you hadn't been to before takes away the lottery of ending up somewhere you don't particularly like.

There was a only (very small) minus - the lack of hot water pressure in the showers in the main camping field. I know others have mentioned this in their reviews, but as the site was quiet, we were able to take our pick of the other toilet blocks, where the pressure was good and the water hot.

We've stayed at other sites on Ullswater, and although it doesn't benefit from being lakeside, the abundant wildlife, especially the cheeky red squirrels, and the peace and quiet more than compensated. Plenty of walking roundabouts - we did a circular to Aira Force and back over Gowbarrow.

Will definitely return before the summer is out...Read less.

Enjoyed a short four night stay with family and friends over Easter, the evening entertainment was varied and very good. We arrived quite late and in the rain, by the time we got set up cooking was the last thing on our mind so we made use of the on site fish and chip shop which was very good.

Small criticism, where we were on site there wasn't enough toilet and shower facilities, one male one female and one family, also the outdoor dishwashing facilities could have done with a cover, particularly as it was cold and raining for the most part. That said the kids play park was great, plenty of open space to play and walk dogs, we will go again....Read less.

Enjoyed our stay in April 17. Good position for exploring Ullswater and surrounding area. Site amenities good and site is well maintained. Toilet block ( one near the main reception ) clean and well maintained.

We stayed on the touring caravan pitches with hardstanding and with water and waste water facilities. All good but got a little fed up with nearby property to the site with dogs barking a lot, Only other gripe is the payment cards for the electricity supply needed for our caravan. You are given 1 unit of electricity per night of stay on a card you have to insert in your pitch post. I found this a pain having to keep check that the meter didn't run out of credit and the caravan left with no power. The fridge could have been left with no power all day and power could have gone off late at night when reception was shut and unable to buy more credit. We were told they have installed these electriciy payment cards due to people leaving their heating all day. Maybe so but a big inconvenence to caravan owners. I'm sure summer electricity consumption is low to compensate.

We did enjoy our stay at this site and would probably stay here again if we wanted to visit the Ullswater area....Read less.

We arrived later than we expected, but the lady had waited for us (after closing hours) above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you. The pitches were easily found and it was a pleasant surprise to see every pitch had its own water and waste water and electricity point. Countless bins encouraged you to keep the site clean. Loved that although the site was large, it had been well thought out with tiered sections making it feel very peaceful and secluded. Lots of hot water for showers and washing up, which was another lovely surprise. The shop was well stocked and not overpriced (like many camp shops). I would have liked a mirror near the plug socket in the lady's top shower block as the plug socket was on wall and the mirror on another. Also, a light by the top washing up facilities. A great find, lovely staff. Was so so glad that our first choice site was full, and found this one. Much nicer. Loads of lovely alms from site and fish and chips to boot on the weekend.

I recently stayed at the Ullswater caravan park and was very pleased. This was my first experience of this type of accomodation and I was pleasantly surprised to find it very modern, warm and well set out. Unfortunately being the week before Easter the chip shop and games room weren't yet open. This would have made cooking so much easier. The caravan itself was great. My only complaint was the terrible knife and glass chopping board. A bottle of 'Jif' or other cleaning product would have been useful.

All in all a very pleasant stay at a very reasonable price!

Booked for an overnight getaway with my partner and dog, took our chances with the weather by booking for march but the gods were favourable and we had unprecedented weather for the time of year. Arrived slightly late for reception to be open but they had called and asked if it was ok to leave directions for us which it was except j hadn't thought about purchasing an electricity card so had no heat overnight (bad choice) i have to stress was user error not campsite error.

The site is very clean, facilities are modern and well kept. Beautifully maintained grounds and very welcoming and friendly staff.

We enjoyed our stay, an excellent location, with friendly helpful staff. The washroom/toilet facilities were excellent, always clean, and showers were warm/hot but the campsite was not busy at the time. The fish and chips from the on-site 'chippy' were very good, we did not use the on-site bar mainly because it was only open on Friday and Saturday . We may possibly use this site again but there are some improvements that can be made to improve the camping experience on this site :-

1. We found the ground for the tent pitches very soft/wet and sloping. The ground in the central area was exceptionally wet/soft. Better drainage and landscaping would improve ground conditions.

2. No Wi-Fi at the camping pitches. It was very was inconvenient having to go to reception to get wi-fi.

3. The picnic barn could be improved to include a freezer for our ice-packs, there is one but it is located in the wrong place at reception.

4. Some campsites provide wooden pic-nic tables, that can be used by campers, at their tents , we have always found this a great addition to our experience when sitting outside the tent on a pleasant day.

Booked site as only one we could get in at short notice. Couldn't get hook up but that was ok. Was given few numbered pitches to choose from when booking but they weren't on the online plan so just picked any. Upon arrival the tented pitches were not numbered and were so close and crowded it was like being at a festival! Our heart's sank but we continued further and found a quieter area near the back of the site, altho pitches were very wet and muddy in parts. Later that evening on visiting toilets I saw another small camping field and went to have a look-very wet and muddy. There was another over-spill field beyond this and when I entered I couldn't believe my eyes-the whole thing opened up and the views were amazing. Only problem was that grass hadnt been cut for an age and it was very uneven. Having said that, we moved pitches the next morning and had weekend of peace and quiet away from main (and very busy) site, with some of the best views we've had from campsite. Would return if knew we would get that field again but wouldn't bother with rest. Another thing to bear in mind-after heavy rainfall several ponds appeared in that field!...Read less.

Arrived at ullswater holiday park on Friday it is a beautiful location but a bit far from anything and on a very steep hill to walk to anywhere, went to go in the showers on Friday which were very busy as only 3 in the block near our pitch so had to wait for a while for them, to find when I got near the front that they were very dirty and grotty, didn't end up going in them as they were that bad, went to bed on friday only to be woken 3 times by the family near us maling lots of noise, wasnt happy with this as the park is suppose to operate a noise free camp after 11.30pm, woke up early Saturday waited for the showers again that morning and they were still the same, wasn't impressed by this and therefore we left the campsite that day, also the pitch was very soggy though pea gravel had been put down to try and stop this. Won't be coming back for these reasons. Which is a shame as the staff were lovely and very friendly and it also has lovely views.

Lovely park in an ideal location. Great range of onsite facilities. Site well maintained but in the interests of improvement:

Couple of things that could be better:

- main' toilet block in touring area had poor shower water pressure and had to service a lot of people. Satellite toilet block above play park was lovely but too small for number of pitches serviced. Toilet block nr reception was good but a trek from touring area.

- Unfortunately there was a lot of noise from other visitors into the night. Not the site's fault, but perhaps there could be areas designated for families with no noise past a certain time? We have stayed on leccy pitches in the main area and in the overflow camping fields above the play park and unfortunately had noisy groups both times. Guess this is a common issue though, so shouldn't put people off....Read less.

Although the site is very well kept and ideally located for the surrounding lakes and activities, it's not a place to go if your looking for a quiet relaxing break.

It can get very busy during the summer holidays and attracts large families which from recent experience enjoy shouting screaming and staying up late listening to 'club' music especially after a few hours at the site bar. We are a young family and appreciate it would be noisy but a few nights it was over the top and wished we had booked a pitch further away from the main field or a different site all together.

It would be unfair not to recommend it as the staff were great a well stocked shop and even a fish and chip shop on site which came in handy one night. Wifi can be used up by the bar as general phone signal is pretty non existent.

Maybe it's just me getting old and grumpy and not liking people but this is just my opinion and hope it can help.

Nice campsite with relatively flat pitches. Included is £1 a night electric but to be fair it was more than ample. Shop and coffee shop staff were very helpful and friendly. Shop fairly basic but stocked lager and wine but no beer! Internet connection was required for my work and was extremely slow and intermittent. Showers and toilets were always clean and tidy but as they are designed like a wet room cleaning consisted of a good karchering everywhere including the mirrors - this did result in soggy toilet rolls!

The bar didn't open until 8pm when the coffee shop closed which was a little late. With poor wifi and no TV signal it was a step back to the 80's when people had to talk to each other. The bar however was disappointing - it was like a 1960's social club with formica tables and chrome stools. The peeling dilapidated sign gave a good indication of what was to follow. Dingy lighting, lacking atmosphere with 3 staff on almost equelling the clientele! Cobwebs from the curtains to the ceiling and smelly toilets with lime green sinks just rounded it off. It was a shame really because it had great potential - a lick of paint, inside and out, a new sign, better lighting and a toilet refurbishment would sort the place out for less than a grand. It was still ok for a peaceful break. The local pub is quite a walk away so you are quite isolated and it costs £10 for a taxi for the 3 mile journey to Pooley Bridge....Read less.

We were really pleased we chose to camp and caravan here. The site is big and it was very busy but we didn't feel crowded and there was plenty of space. It is clean and tidy, with the bins being emptied daily. We camped on a gravel pitch as we were with my parents who were in a tourer. The pitches we stayed on were very big and well spaced. The only criticism about the pitches is that they would look better if there were less weeds growing through the gravel and the small gravel drive through the pitches was better maintained (in wet weather it became very muddy). Also the wash up at the top of the site was not protected/sheltered from the rain. This was a nuisance as it rained often whilst we were there and having to stand in the rain to wash up was a bit of a nightmare. However, none of these things would put us off staying here again. The playground is great and we felt able to let our children go and play. The entertainment at the main reception was fab and there was plenty to do. The shop and cafe was lovely- it was amazing the amount of stock the shop had.....everything you could need that you may have forgotten to pack!

This park is great value for money, cheaper then a few others, this is the 3rd year running we've stayed here. My "kids" are in their late teens all 16+ and they like it here, but I think it's more geared to young families. My youngest son would go up to play on the pool tables and some times had to wait till quite late on when the younger kids had to leave to go to bed. I was a bit disappointed in the lack of entertainment, we stopped Monday to Monday, and they only had entertainment on, on Saturday, which was a disco, again more for the younger kids, with a quiz, then one round of bingo which was Very hard to hear for all the kids screaming and running around. So if like us you' have an older family or no kids at all, not much going on on a night.

However like I said this is our 3rd year here, so they are obviously good, they are nice clean park friendly, and conveniently placed for exploring the Lake District.

We stayed at this site for three nights in August (meant to be staying 2 nights but extended stay) with our three children (11, 9, 5). The site had a lot more space than many of the other campsites on Ullswater, there was plenty of grass space for our tent and loads of room opposite us for games of cricket, football etc. The play park was great for the kids. The bar was lovely, not too busy, just right, we enjoyed watching the Olympics on an evening in the bar and putting some songs on the juke box. The games room was just enough for the kids, not too much for them to waste their money on but enough to keep them entertained. The toilet/shower facilities were very clean and we never had to wait in a queue. The site is only 5 minutes drive from Pooley Bridge where we hired a boat and had a great pub lunch. Aira Force waterfalls is also just a couple of minutes drive. The views are lovely on this campsite and the stars at night are breath-taking. I would definitely return to this site....Read less.

This was our first camping holiday with our family at this site and we were extremely disappointed with the toilet/shower facilities on the camp site. The toilet/shower block was very dated to say the least and very rarely cleaned from what I could see. I also think that the pot wash area could do with being in an enclosed area.

Security of the site was near to none existent in comparison to other sites we have been to and the Internet/wifi access was awful considering that we now live in the 21st century and we can fly men to the moon!

The chip shop at the top however served excellent food and I would recommend it to anybody.

The pitch was waterlogged and got worse as the week went on. Considering the not so insignificant sum of money we paid for a weeks camping we thought that it was definitely not good value for money.

There doesn't appear to have been any money spent on the site for a number of years....Read less.

The evenings were lovely enjoying the fish and chips from the on site shop relaxing on a picnic blanket at the front of the of the caravan looking at the view. The staff on the site were always lovely and knowledgeable about the local area, one day we visited tge stunning aria falls which was not to far away from the site and I would highly recommend.

The general shop on the site was not hugely stocked but did have the essentials at a reasonable price.

For the price and the quality of the site we have already decided to stay hear again ( but for longer next time) and we have already recommended the site to family and friend who are looking into booking for later in the year !

Thanks for a lovely stay ....Read less.

I've been to this campsite 4 times now and love it. The grounds are beautiful. We stayed in a cabin this time, which was brilliant. They have a fish and chip on site, but i wish they did pizzas as well and if the cafe also did breakfast, i think theyd make a bomb. That's easy for me to say though.

This is in no way a negative comment, I love this campsite.

Could do with an onsite cash machine or cash back option as I am useless at having cash in my purse but hey I suppose that is my fault!

Both times we have been we have been unlucky enough to have noisy neighbours. Park warden had strong words with them the next day which sorted it for the rest of our holidays. I do think the noise cap should be earlier than 11.30 though.

Dish drainers at the washing up sinks would be useful.

Microwave is an amazing option please don't take that away.

Overall a lovely park and will totally be back....Read less.

We stayed at the Ullswater Holiday Park for a short break and was very satisfied with the quality and cleanliness of our caravan. I also used the toilet in the park and again that was well looked after. The staff at reception and at the bar were all helpful and friendly that I would not hesitate to recommend this site to my friends and family. I would just like to suggest if they could put a number on the caravan itself so it could easily be identified when you first arrive. The area around the park was beautiful so overall, we were all happy with our stay at the park....Read less.

We loved the site - delightful setting, friendly and helpful staff and very clean facilities. Our only disappointment was the noisy neighbours - first on one side, a couple who were noisily talking and laughing after 1230 am and even later with their cosy 'night-time activities'. Then the family on the other side , who had a child that screamed and talked very loudly all day and up till 1129 pm when they (observing the 1130 curfew strictly) finally got it to bed. Not suprisingly, the child started again at 0645 in the morning.

When we took our young daughter camping and she was noisy, we took her off the site - either by car or in a push chair - for the sake of the other campers. We sadly are unlikely to return to your lovely site as the general public has a culture of noise that we cannot expect to change single-handedly (and we don't want them to scratch our car or let down our tent!)....Read less.

The camp is clean and tidy, and good value. Unfortunately the noise restrictions are not enforced, so ultimately you people up until 2am making noise when you're trying to sleep, then when you get up at 7.30 the people who were up late are moaning because you're making a noise at 7.30. This spoiled th whole experience for me and would only revisit if we were assured there would be security on site to enforce the noise levels....Read less.

Excellent facilities and children's play area. Location close to the Lake is fab and we were able to access off site attractions easily. On site fish and chip shop and shop were excellent.

We stayed in a beautiful, clean and well maintained cottage which provided excellent accomodation. Shop on site was reasonably priced and staff were very friendly. Children's playpark was excellent and well used by our 3 children. Main downfall was lack of onsite facilities and the irregular times they were open. I understand this was off peak season but feel customers could have been better catered for as we still paid alot of money for staying (which we feel was only for 4 walls and not much else!)

We enjoyed our quiet holiday but wouldn't return as there wasn't enough for us to do. Would recommend this holiday park to people looking for a slower paced holiday or for outdoorsy people....Read less.

We have stayed in the cottages in Ulswater Caravan Park over several years, with our sons as teenagers and with friends, this stay was to help us recharge our batteries. The acomodation was of a higher standard and everything we needed was supplied, the view of the lake was amazing and we spent most of our time relaxing in a tranquil environment. There was a very old wooden bench and table near the cottage but i'm sure if we'd asked the staff would have sorted something for us, they were very obliging, friendly and welcoming. We particularly like the idea of short breaks at not outlandish prices....Read less.

The shower/toilet block we used was very good quality and very clean, although for women's showering it would be more helpful to have a removable shower head as opposed the fixed ones.

Very well maintained site; immaculate and professional.

Location - top of a hill about a 15 minute walk uphill from the lake. Beautiful views, a lot of loud sheep.

Facilities - amazing play park for children; clean wash facilities however the flow of water in the camping area washrooms is a barely adequate, dissatisfying trickle - the showers in the other block are much better and had a lovely shower; good washer and drier; (didn't use games room).

Food and drink - good sized bar; cafe - opens a bit late to be of use to me (9am) and would have liked something more than just cake available, eg sandwiches. Sadly the Fish and Chip shop only opens Friday and Saturday when we didn't stay so couldn't try it. Shop - good for basics only.

WiFi - not available from the camping area, small area outside of bar (and in bar) where it was available and pretty weak signal. Adequate to check your emails but difficult to download attachments. Mobile phone reception poor but existant in area....Read less.
