The holiday park and surroundings was very nice. A few things not particularly happy with, did not get caravan we booked, was given another one eventually after 4pm but seemed as if no one really knew what was going on. Another thing, although the park said dog friendly which admittedly dogs could stay on the park and in accommodation, the one thing they was not allowed was one step past reception. There was no separate room where dogs and their owners could go and have something to eat or have a couple of drinks in the evening. We have been to other dog friendly campsites where this is possible and to be honest it makes a lot of difference to be able to go and sit somewhere inside with your pet to unwind and have a meal or drink. This was a definite No No on this campsite. I feel that you must lose so much custom because of this. I think that if we were to come back to the lake district we would enquire more into this to make sure dogs were allowed into their own bit. Because of this I do not think we will visit this particular caravan park again.
