    Any one any suggestions for MH storage in South Cumbria. I live between Windermere and Kendal. Nearest CaSSOA Sites are Carnforth and Bardsea both about 20 miles away.

    Hi Paul, you could try Grate Farm at Prizet, just off the Kendal by pass. I'm pretty sure they have room. £300 a year come and go as you please and we've been there these past 2 years without a hint of any trouble. Don't know the number but will be in the book, ask for Nancy.

    Thanks @dally location is ideal. We have a MH on order so will take a look. Any problems with insurance as its not a CaSSOA Site? Do you ;eave your car there when using your MH? Thanks Paul

    Hi Paul, no problems with insurance, I just named the site location as it's over night address. It didn't add anything to the premiums, that's with Safegard insurance. As for the car, yes, we leave our car in our allotted space while we are away. This is also a good indication to the owners that there isn't a problem with who might have taken the van. Access is open but it's through the farm and past the owners house. It's a working farm so expect there to be a bit of muck about. On the whole, it's ideally situated and the price is reasonable. Have a look, Nancy won't mind.

    @dally Unfortunately not until September but can't wait. Have you used a weighbridge and if so where?

    Hi Paul. I haven't I'm afraid. The nearest one, if it still exists is at Carnforth, left turn just before railway bridge which is just before Callender caravans. I think it belongs to Thursby's but it's been a long long time since I've heard it being mentioned.
    At the risk of being controversial, I have never worried about the weight of the motorhome nor have I ever been stopped by the police. If fact, considering I have been lorry driving for 30 years, I have only been stopped and weighed maybe 5 times. :)
