Nowt on! I've never been so busy - propping up what feels like every small business around.  I'm knackered  :-X

If you didn't keep hearing about the problems on the TV you'd be oblivious to it round here - but I did drive past Burns Farm yesterday - not one car, caravan or tent in site  ;D

Cor blimey you lot are needy! †;D

I have been speaking to a privately owned outward bound centre. †Proper beds, dorms that sleep 1 - 4, private hot showers, plenty of electric, bbq welcome, downstairs bar and meeting room if it's wet like last time and if booked in the school holidays/half term provides exclusive accommodation.

No need to bring all the camping kit, perhaps share lifts, sleep in a bed yet it's set in the most idyllic location 2m from Keswick.

Cars welcome and carpark/hardstanding.

I only have 2 things to sort out - how many cars/people can they take and how much. †It'll be more than a space in a field, but less than a B&B and we're all together - dry and warm and comfortable.

I'll speak with them again this week to firm up costs and dates and see how we get on. †If not the owner also owns a farm less than a mile from Burns Farm and may lend us a field......... ;)

Now that sounds like a good idea to me, and a bar, what more would you want....... :y :y :y

http://www.seacote.com/ :y

This is a nice place, camping is on a field away from the caravans, there is a pub nearby for food, toilets are usually clean, the beach is literally 150 yards away and the sea is warm too.....   very highly reccomended, Whitehaven is a few miles away... ideal for families... oh! and reasonably flat too...

I've been with a group of males doing the coast to coast and with my family at a later date too...

Possibly a bitch to get to though - probably 50m-1hr beyond Keswick, as all shortcuts are small, slow roads (unsuitable for vans) - you either go Keswick way (North around lake district), Barrow (South) or via hardknot and wrynose passes (through the middle)

Agreed, awkward for vans.. ideal for just tents... the middle road is a great driving road...  :)

Hoping to get to The Lakes this year.. :y

I've finally got round to a Lakes alternative venue.

Given the support shown for York I've put together a late season deal with this place http://www.activity-centre.com/

This is a bit more cost than usual but is a different concept entirely...

It has 137 beds available in dorm style rooms or 2,4,8 beds - yes bunk beds do feature! Separate showers †- newly refit and very clean.

£24 per person per night - on B&B basis (no room only option) inc all bedding, but not towels. Not sure about kids - forgot to ask †:-[

Large BBQ on site available - or they can cater for BBQ at £6/7 per head inc a sticky bun for a pudding. Bring your own plates and plastic forks to keep cost down.

Fully licensed bar and indoor meeting area (the bar) - but that means you can't bring your own booze I'm afraid - unless you sneak it in your room after dark.

Field available at the end of the short drive to park all of the cars and ok to work on here too. †Also limited tarmac hard standing area if required can be used.

Sorry no dogs.

So for £30 a night, you can sleep in a warm bed, feast at a communal BBQ, have a hot shower before waking up for a cooked breakfast and if it's cold or raining you can slouch inside too and the only things you need to bring are a change of clothes and some tools  :)

Dates available are based on Fri/Sat's of:

31 July - 2 Aug
7-9 Aug
16-16 Aug
4-6 Sept
11-13 Sept
2-4 Oct

I'm off to Austria now but please feel free to comment if you think this is worth looking at and I'll pick up the thread next week. :y
