    I thought you wanted to be near Kendal not the M6

    Wateredge site is at Crooklands with just a hotel bar close by. Kendal is a good 6 miles from there and not really walkable. The Kendal C&CC site is the only site that I would call walkable into town. You have Morrisons about a half a mile away on the edge of town then it's about a mile to the centre.

    Some good restaurants here but the pub scene, sadly has declined. Places I would recommend for a pint of real ale would be. Burgundy's wine bar on the narrow street down the side of the town hall or the brewery arts centre has a huge range of drinks. There are other places but none that I bother with these days.

    The C &CC site known as Windermere is actually closer to Kendal than it is to Windermere. It isn't within walking distance but does have a cosy little pub on site which serves bar snacks. It is also open for Xmas and the New Year.

    Agree with Tootles post above: this is one of our favourite sites and even though it is CC the layout is very informal. No straight lines and not a mower in sight!

    Ditto comments on Sedgwick CC site. We stopped there just for one night on the way back from Scotland and felt it was a place we could easily have spent a few days at.
