Cumbria at its Best

Croft Ends Farm
This site has a WOW factor. It is set a couple of miles from Appleby town centre with stunning views over the countryside. You get a very warm welcome from the owners, Andrew and Val, who are both very knowledgeable of the local area, giving great advise. We had initially booked for eight nights, however with this being such a peaceful and tranquil site we booked another nights stay. We would highly recommend this site and will be visiting again.

Second stay at this lovely site

Croft Ends Farm
Just returned home after a three night stay at Crofts End Farm. We received a very warm welcome, as usual, and were shown to our pitch and given all the relevant info including matters relating to Covid and disposal of waste. The views from the pitch were stunning, and the pitch itself was more than ample and level so no ramps required. Found it very nice to have fresh water and waste water drain on the pitch. Toilet spotlessly clean and site immaculate. Short walk (about 30mins) takes you into Appleby with the usual mix of shops and cafes. We found the locals to be very friendly and helpful. We had a good walk up to High Cup Nick, and if you park in Dufton village car park (toilets available which again were immaculate) its just over eight miles there and back. All in all a very enjoyable stay and we hope to return later In the year to take the alternative route up to High Cup Nick.

Disappointed!

Croft Ends Farm
This site on paper is everything we look for when we are looking for places to stay, sadly I cannot pin point why I didn't like it but i felt a little disappointed. Our welcome onto site was straightforward, we were shown our pitch and told there was no bins due to covid, were handed a bin bag and told to take any recycling to Appleby to dispose of!. No other site we have visited has dispensed of their bins and we also had a pile of dog poo bags on our pitch as there wasn't even a facility to get rid of them either on site or out and about. We noticed other dog owners doing the same. Our pitch wasn't level and even using ramps, we couldn't get right. We had a high hedge on one side of us and sadly the views everyone talks about were obscured by the empty bin storage facility and other units. Looking at the other pitches, they were much better placed for the views. The pitches were fully serviced and enormous, very much a positive for the money. The roaming hens were delightful to watch from the van. Plenty of walks from site but the lanes were quite busy and traffic fast moving. The many off road footpaths were either well overgrown or through fields with livestock in them and I will not use these as dogs and cows with there calves are not a good mix. Access to the site was easy and the site is very popular and reasonably priced. Nearest town is a good walk, 30/40 minutes but with no pavements so not ideal. Didn't observe any public transport in the close vicinity either. There is a train station at Appleby however. This site is perfect for those who tow as they can use their cars to get around the area or for 1 night stopovers maybe.

Peace Tranquility with Outstanding Views

Croft Ends Farm
If you are looking for peace and tranquility, surrounded by beautiful countryside, then this is it. Easy to find. Just take care as you approach the farm as the sign is not easy to see. The fully serviced pitches are basically level, large and well spaced with excellent views across to the Pennines. The pretty village of Appleby is half an hours walk and has a couple of small supermarkets and several places to eat. Excellent CL.
