We provide a natural setting to encourage birds and wildlife and maintain the farm in keeping with our surroundings. Consequently you will see many species of birds as well as rabbits, if you are very lucky you may also get to see deer, foxes and badgers. Our farm changes greatly throughout the year so make the most of us being open all year, so why not come and visit us for Christmas and New Year.
With the Lake District National Park on our doorstep you can have many invigorating walks on the adjoining mountains and moors.
If you want to do something else then golf, fishing, fine dining and horse riding are all to be found nearby.
£10 night

outstanding in this time of social distancing.... The lake,the location and tranquility was great. A bit cold at night due to the temperature dropping to 6c but nature is to blame for that. The price for fishing and camping is very fair and the lake produced some good fish. Great for a 2/3 day stay due to limited washroom facilities. Just one word of caution TAKE HEAVY DUTY TENT PEGS the ground is hard but that's the lake district for you... The owners are 10 out of 10

A lovely tranquil spot in the countryside, especially if you like wildlife. Amazing views of the fishing lakes and hills beyond. Only 5.2 miles from Kendal and not too far from lakes Windermere. We only stayed one night as we were on our way up to Scotland but we'd definately return to this site.

We stopped overnight on way to lake. £10 for the night. We were only campers there. Nice pull ins around a small lake with lots of birdlife. Owners very friendly. Felt very safe with gated access. Basic loo, but no other facilities. Suited us just fine as we are set up for off grid camping with diesel heater in our camper van, so no need for EHU anyway. We enjoyed the peace and solidtude. Our type of camper vanning :)

Fantastic Spot, very quiet. Secure inside a gated entrance. Unfortunately now no electricity so need to be self propelled! Price this year is £10 per night. Fishing seems to be excellent if your that way inclined.
