Hi Andy

we stayed one night at Englethwaite Hall and want to go back for longer! We
used it to break our journey back from Scotland. Only small downside for us
is that the final road to get there is very ridgeback but so long as you
keep the speed down to below 30, you should be fine.
The rest is very positive, it is as usual a very clean Caravan Club. It was
very quiet and spacious with lots of space with, if my memory is correct,
trees surrounding the place making it even quieter, although not dense to
make it dark. For dog walks, there is a wood with access from the site. We
went through the wood and walked for a couple of miles to a nearby village
with a pub (probably Cotehill) - can't remember if they did food, but the
beer was ok!

Hope this helps

Englethwaite Hall


Lovely quiet and peaceful site, a lot of the pitches are spacious and
easy to get on. We use it as a stopover when travelling up to the west
coast of Scotland and back.

Bunree


Absolutely magnificent site but you would need to book it well
beforehand if you are planning on going almost anytime from June
through to September. The line of pitches that are along the lochside
are specified as non awning pitches though they are very spacious
pitches. The last time I went there was the first time I had booked
the site by phone to CC headquarters and on arrival found that when
they take a booking for a non awning stay thhey actually book one of
the lochside pitches. If you book with the wardens normal conditions
apply you take what is available, though all the pitches on the site
have wonderful views. The midges there can be fierce if the weather
has been a bit damp ( quite a normal situation for the area ). Dog
walking directly from the site ( short walks ) is not the best but if
you go up to the main road and take the road opposite into Inchree and
go as far as you can along there the walks in the forests there are
superb ( it's about a mile from the site ). Alternatively take the car
up to the corran ferry and park there, go across the loch as a foot
passenger ( free ) and turn right when you get off the ferry, about a
quarter of a mile along there is a track that leads into the woods,
it's a lovely walk, and comes out on the other side of the wood, where
you can walk along the road back to the ferry. Lots to do in the area.
The ride over rannoch Moor and down through Glencoe on the way in to
the site must be one of the most beautiful drives you will ever do.
Highly recommended.

Yellowcraig


another superb site, I have booked a part seasonal pitch there for
next september/ October. Thesite is about 400yards from a large open
sandy beach. walking from the site is excellent, access to Edinburgh
is easy, if you are a birdwatcher there are lots of birds around and
lots of places to go. North berwick has most things you could need.

and Meathop Fell?


A pleasant site, we use it frequently in the winter. there is access
to the the lake district, kendal is pleasant, the coast down to
Morecambe is quite accessible, lots of places to go from there.
Several good pubs in the area where the food is excellent. I have a
friend who thinks this site is the bees knees, unless he goes up to
the far north of scotland he rarely goes anywhere else.

If you want any more information send me an e-mail and I will send
photos and the like ( though the photos may take some time as they are
on a machine that I am awaiting a replacement motherboard for). If you
e-mail me don't just use the reply function please it will take ages
to reach me. Better to use bill hyphen lord at uku dot co dot uk.

I can confirm Bills recomendation on Bunree, he told me last year how good
it was , we went 1st week March, but he should have said it is BRILLIANT,
not just good!! If you go, try and pitch on the top road by the fence at the
foot of the wooded hill, the view is brilliant and if you plant a couple of
bird feeders by the van window, you will see allsorts of birds within a
matter of minuets, keep you entertained for hours. But as Bill says, watch
out for the midges in their season!!
