Reviews of Whinfell Hall Farm Camp Site

I spent 3 very pleasant nights at £17 per night with electric, (arrived Mon 30 Jul - departed Thu 2 Aug), at the Whinfell Hall Farm Camp Site which is spread over 3 small fields. There is a mixture of electric and non-electric pitches which are a good size and level. The site is dog-friendly and is suitable for families with kids with space to play ball games - providing the site is not busy!
Whilst the site may not be 5 stars, it is basic, whether you are a solo, couple or a family, I do recommend it. Overall I enjoyed my stay and I will definitely be returning later this year, if this summer continues, I may squeeze in two short trips.
The site is located within the Vale of Lorton with the River Cocker just across the road. It is a 10 minute or so drive to Cockermouth where there is a Sainsbury's and usual shops and facilities and the nearest pub the Wheatsheath is only a 5-minute walk down the road.

The site is very quiet, spacious and great location for visiting Loweswater and Cockermouth area, and very good value for money.
The washing, shower and toilet facilities are very clean, with hand scented soap available in the toilets - but there is no hand dryer (take a hand towel!). Though there are only 2 wash-up sinks where there is a freezer, 2 toilets and 2 showers in the gents, they are very clean and tidy, with plenty of hot water. However, it may involve queuing at times. Whilst they are very clean they are very tired and in need of a bit of modernising.
The owner is very friendly and welcoming, and only a phone call/text message away with their number displayed at the reception office.

There was no appointing of the pitches, so it is a bit of a free-for-all on arrival with no manned reception. There was a camper who booked electric, but ended up with non-electric. Some pitches had stakes with a tag labelling them as reserved, but no names on the tags. I was fortunate as the owner showed me to my electric pitch.

The path through the site is uncovered, so after rain or in the wetter months the trek to the small centrally located toilet block can be very muddy.

The refuse bin opposite the shower block was in need of being emptied, it was overflowing on my visit - a bit unsightly.
