    Just a short thankyou to Marilyn & Steve (Scran) and Chris & Bill (Tick59) for being good funster companions for the weekend at Ambleside. Saturday bwas a bit of a let down, weather wise, but other than that it was fine. Smashing little venue & we should do it again sometime :BigGrin:

    Nice enough site if you have full on board facilities. There is a freshwater supply & the "Elsan" point is a little "Heath Robinson" but operational.
    The views are great and you couldn't ask for better access to Ambleside.
    There is a hard standing area, but we found the grass section OK.
    Hope you enjoy it as much as we did :BigGrin:

    Hi Gerry we are sat there now
    Brilliant site:thumb::thumb::thumb:
    £6 for vans under 6 metres long
    £8 for vans over 6 metres
    Tap water available and the Elsan point is still work in progress but usable
    If its wet there are 15 hard standing pitches available
    If its dry there is another area with plenty of choice
    Its just a short walk the town centre , and we have just sussed the Buses to Grasmere and Hawkshead

    I must admit I did not know what to expect when we headed for here, I was thinking it was going to be a bit of old waste land, but its not, nice and level site with great views

    We just rang the site owner on
    07708 310986
    or you can email him on
    mfmcambles@hotmail.com

    To get on site you need the code for the locked gate
