Herdwick Croft Cottage

Fryer, Lynn - 09/07/2024

5

Herdwick cottage surpassed our expectations. A beautiful cottage finished to a very high standard, with high quality furnishings and tasteful decor. The kitchen was very well equipped and has a large American style fridge/freezer as well as a wine chiller. The dining room is a great social space for enjoying meals with friends/family around the 8 seater dining table. The weather was mixed on our visit but we managed to take advantage of the outdoor space to have a BBQ and a soak in the 2 jacuzzis. The surrounding area has a lot to offer too. Nice walks lead us to The Lakes Distillery where we had a nice Sunday lunch and Armathwaite Hall Hotel. Our last morning we had breakfast at Bassenthwaite Lake Station Cafe, which is a must. The restaurant is in the carriages of an old steam engine. (Apparently Murder on the Orient Express was filmed in the carriages) I cannot think of any negatives and would highly recommend Herdwick cottage.

Lovely view and right next to the lake

Chetwynd, Helen - 05/07/2024

Beautiful grounds, well kept, friendly clean, good swimming at the lake that's a few minutes walk away. There's a bistro on site, can get coffee in the morning.For camping and tourers, its a slope. Even on chocks I couldn't level up, they kept sinking into the grass, bear that in mind when booking a grass pitch. I'd booked electric hook up but had to borrow an extra cable as plug was too far away for even my very long cable. Make sure you know which way round to park.The toilet block not good. 2 showers each for the whole campsite and they are too hot, can't see clothes for steam. 2 toilets that always sit in a puddle of water, showers leak and it seems to be coming up through the tiles, they move and squish when you stand on them. Taps are push taps that have so much pressure behind them that half the water squirts out top and the rest hits the sink then you. When dark, the sensor doesn't come on until you're right inside, there are 2 steps to mind, not just one. (Still bruised)

Excellent

We had the most amazing week, the caravan pitches were perfect with the most exquisite scenery. The staff were all lovely friendly and very helpful. Our stay brought back beautiful fond memories of the past when we use to visit my nan and Grandad who had a static on site for years and visiting mrs wilson in the house which is now a lodge. We went swimming in lake , local whisky distillery is just around the corner and plenty of good pubs to enjoy. Our friends who joined us, will again re visit.

Rubbish information

Lloyd, Norman - 30/06/2024

Lovely clean site. No reception & no one to tell you where anything is. There is a phone no but no one answers. They do not even give you any information on their website. All you get is a pitch no. They do not tell you where to get water or were to dump your waste water. You have to find out were the showers & Elson point are your selves. No information on walks or where to catch a bus. The worst site we have been on. It is such a shame as it could be a lovely site. As when we were leaving we found out you can flag down a bus at the site entrance.

Good on site facilities

Missen, Robert - 29/06/2024

Our 3 night stay at Herdwick Croft was very peaceful, there is no commercialization of Bassenthwaite Lake so it was a quiet stay with quiet walks. The facilities on site were excellent although we didn't try out the Bistro. The walk to Bassenthwaite Lake Station was definitely worth it. The only missing thing was a drain for grey waste that we could park over, we were in a hired van with no separate container to collect it and take it to the drains against the toilet block walls as others did. Would definitely consider going there again.

Peaceful, good location and decent bar- but change the taps

Johnston, Siobhan - 27/06/2024

A lovely, quiet site with excellent access to Bassenthwaite just outside the gates. Walking distance to the lake distillery and alpaca experiences. Great addition of the bistro and bar since my last visit. Food was good. Feel that the shower/toilet facilities are limited (2 of each) and a bit far from the camping pitches. The taps are dreadful and drench everything within a ft radius then turn off before you can actually use them. Very difficult with children who need to lean over to reach the sink and end up soaking up puddles of water with all their clothing. Changing the taps and adding a stool for children would make a massive difference.

Beautiful site very near bassenthwaite lake .staff are helpful and friendly and the site and facilities are always tidy and Clean .would give 5 stars but I do feel the toilet and shower facilities need improved as if it was really busy 2 of each male/female toilets and showers would not be enough .Love the bar food is great .Thee site pricing is same as others close by maybe should be slightly less considering the facilities being so small but allmin all enjoyed our stay and would return and recommend
