Great views and user friendly

Croft Ends Farm
We have just come back from a short break here (en route home) and have booked a week in August. Great views and a level hardstanding pitch with its own water supply. We visited Barnard Castle (Bowes Museum) which we very much liked - we took the long way round over Alston (what a road that is.....). Will go into the Lakes next time. Owners are nice and helpful.

Outstanding!

Croft Ends Farm
Despite caravanning for eleven years we hadn’t tried a CL until now. Can’t believe we haven’t before! Absolutely stunning location overlooking the farmland. Warm welcome as we arrived. Pitch hard standing and fully serviced with a toilet available on the site. There are excellent recycling facilities, an abundance of walks locally, including Appleby itself which is half an hour walk. Such a pretty and peaceful location, many thanks to the lovely owners.

Return Visit Did Not Disappoint

Croft Ends Farm
This was one of our favourite sites from last year and a second visit did not disappoint. The views are beautiful, there are local walks and the welcome from Val and her family is very warm. This time we walked into Appleby from the site and managed to find our way back over the fields. We will return again.

Excellent

Croft Ends Farm
Everything about this tranquil site suited us. We were warmly welcomed, the views are fabulous and the serviced pitches are generous and well laid out. The access to the site is easy. There is lots to do in the area and I have no doubt we will return. This really is one of the best sites that we have used.

Great site lovely hosts

Croft Ends Farm
This was our first winter trip and was unsure what to expect out of season. We had no need to worry, Val and Andrew were superb hosts always at hand for any questions or help finding our way around Appleby. We experienced one particularly windy night and was worried that our awning would take off, but Andrew let us use one of his sheds to store our equipment prior to the storm arriving. Nothing was too much trouble and we are looking forward to our next visit in March. A lovely peaceful location with beautiful views and ideal for sightseeing around Cumbria.
