If you like the quieter parts of the Lake District, a friendly, clean and cosy site, next to a good pub, close to the coast, lakes and mountains, and good value, this is worth a look. Equally a long trail off the M6 from both North and South, but excellent Deli driving around these parts.

I doubt if it will be open next week, Mr. D  Smile I'll need you to remind me to remind you! As for your 'No trees were harmed...' line, two have blown down on Monday night into my garden/ patio, courtesy of our local phenomenon, the Helm Wind. Miraculously, no damage to house, and plenty of logs for the fire! Gotbeanz, let me know when/ where, perhaps meet up for a 'Howdy' ,.

A. If you want to sleep in the van you pay motorhome rates, so take a small tent and say your sleeping in that.  Rolling Eyes

B. Yes; a few years back. Some friends were doing a walk from Keswick to Seascale, via Wasdale Head. I was providing ground support, so had lunch there before heading up into the hills to setup and have a hot evening meal ready for them. They spent the night up on the fells. I slept in the van, in the pub carpark.  Laughing

If my drive away awning 2.5M X 3M passes muster as a standard tent, then £12/night is good value by Lake District standards. Pub yard might be ok for a single van for a single night, but if more people for more nights, I think the camp site would be preferable. I can't see the publican letting you light a fire or barbecue in his yard, and drinking your own beer or whiskey!

That's just what I need, for my one night stopover on the way to visit my friend in Scotland  Smile
I always divert to ogle "The Lakes" on the way "Up North"

From visiting you last year, a place like that (closer to you) would have persuaded me to stopover on my way home, .
It was nice to see you at home - but it meant doing a lot of driving in the dark.
I go out travelling to see scenery. Not that the A1 offers much  Sad

Mr D. SantonBridge is well over 11/2 hours from the M6 at both Kendal and Penrith, so not a good stopover when travelling to Scotland. On the other hand, I am only 20mins east of J40 M6 Penrith!

PS Gotbeanz. Whitbarrow Village is halfway between Keswick and Penrith (slightly north) and around 35 mins. from me. (Just so you don't overshoot!)

A) I think you mean 1 & 1/2 hours  Wink  So - After driving over 300 miles on the M 6 to J 36, another 40 odd miles is "local"

B) Why not  Question Driving to there, I might see parts of "The Lakes" I've not seen previously.
Not living local to that area, there's a lot I've not seen.

C) Where you live is very nice. But - - -

1) On my way to Scotland, if I were to stopover at your place overnight, I would not have time to go visit The Lakes, when I left yours.

2) That pub appears to have a nice sheltered car park. - - - Do bear in mind, I have a "Late Routine" -
Does not suit folks that I visit to stay up late. - - - When folks are spending, many pubs stay open late  Smile

In all my life I've only "camped" four times in The Lakes. First time on me bike, in the early 60s, somewhere near Cockermouth

Three times In the Deli. Once at the Kirkby Lonsdale car park, on the Hardknott Pass, and thanks to you  Smile the Coniston campsite.

I've not seen the Honister & Winlatter Passes, are they worth seeing/driving on  Question I'd like to, am I missing anything  Question

For everyone looking at this, just off J 36, head S. East (A 590) then North W. on the A 65, is the Canal Garage (Lancaster canal) = cheap Diesel fuel  Smile

The Honister is a bit like the Kirkstone, rugged, steep sided and rocky, with a river/stream running beside it. Plenty of places to pull over for dramatic landscape photos. The Whinlatter ascends through mixed forests, more attractive, less mono-culture than the more boring, tall dark pine forests of Kielder, and has a visitor centre half way up, to educate you about the local flora and fauna, which I think you would prefer to avoid. You can easily do both passes in a loop off the A66, but beware of mountain bikers appearing out of the forest and crossing in front of you. I agree, an unhurried stop-over at Santon bridge is a good way to break your journey to Scotland, or when next visiting Blencarn.
