Nick Gill and Kayley Kennedy from Stonethwaite Farm Campsite in the Borrowdale Valley near Keswick have taken to social media to announce that his facility is to close for the next few weeks due to "idiot" campers that have been unable to follow guidelines issued following the Coronavirus pandemic.
The pair, who manages the campsite and traditional working farm which is located on a site of special scientific interest, said:
"It pains us to say this but we made have the decision to close the campsite from Thursday, 20 August, for the next few weeks. Unfortunately, many of our campers have been unable to stick to our guidelines let alone Government guidelines, making stays far less enjoyable for our regular campers and ourselves.
"Not only that, we are unable to keep up with the sheer amount of rubbish - including tents, gazebos, airbeds, chairs and even a mop - which not only makes the site look untidy but also adds a huge cost to ourselves to get rid of.
"Idiot campers - Please take a long hard look at yourselves and learn to respect your fellow campers. Playing music until 4am when it is against our camp rules AND you have already been told to turn it off is not acceptable. Groups are limited to a maximum of six or two families by the government, so stop turning up in groups of 10+.
"Regular campers - We are sorry we have come to this decision but hope you understand. The site has been busier than ever and while it has been good to see you again, we're sure you'll all enjoy it more when normal service has resumed and the peaceful, laid-back atmosphere of our campsite returns.
