The CC have now taken Braithwait Fold site off the list of sites with Immediate effect. This site was in the heart of the Lake District in Bowness almost ajacent to lake Windermere. The council, who own the site, have refused the CC's offer for renewing the contract. Along with Coed Helen at Carnavon thats two gone. They give no other details but it makes me wonder how much the owners where now expecting from the club for the continued sites?

I wonder if there is more to this closure than meets the eye.

Seem to imply that a car park might be built at Braithwaite Fold as part of a masterplan to re-develop the area.

Now it makes some sense, I have also found this, www.lakedistrict.gov.uk/__data/assets/pd...ed_options190911.pdf
There is a good plan map of the intended development of the area, page 7 of PDF, which as stated, braithwait fold as a car park with loads of revenue nodoubt.

I have just compared the PDF map to google earth, and it looks like the car parking won't encroach on the former CC site.
So it remaines to be seen just what will happen to this site?

Looks like the C&CC have been awarded the management contract for Braithwaite Fold.

Great that a site will still be available, sorry to say that C&CC are not my favourite what with two night min. booking on a lot of sites ( maybe all ? ) Staff are all fine as in my experience are CC staff.
Note the council brief states to achieve max. occupancy ? ever tried to book B.Fold under C.C. ?
Am I wrong to see £££'s in the deal ?

I don't think the CC has a good record for re-negotiating leases at caravan sites where it doesn't own the freehold - they've lost a few over the years which subsequently carried on as caravan sites under different management - they also have a number on very short leases because they can't reach agreement for a longer deal.

Most recent caravan reviews

Swift Eccles 580 - Apart from the neat silver roundel placed on the front nearside corner to mark 100 years of Eccles caravans, this exterior looks much like any other Swift model, with a black front panel and understated decals (© Practical Caravan)
Venus 460/2 Deluxe - Venus 460/2 Deluxe offers sharp graphics, glazed door, smart alloys and a large front window. Service points are placed on the offside (© Practical Caravan)
Coachman Pastiche 520 - Clean lines and understated decals give the Pastiche 520 an elegant exterior, and Al-Ko ATC and stabiliser mean it should be an easy tow (© Practical Caravan)
Adria Altea 472 DS Eden - Maximising the window area has helped Adria create a roomy feel, and the whole interior exudes a sleek, modern look that's unusual at this price (© Practical Caravan)
