A beautifully maintained site with the added ease of no arrival/departure restrictions which was really b helpful as we weren't sure of either! warm and friendly owners who are not intrusive. Would definitely return and plan excursions using this as a base. Thank you to all the Errington's!
We have used this site for quite a number of years now as an overnight stop usually for two nights at a time, three or four times a year. We usually arrive without booking and find the site well manicured,( it seems to be the owners pride and joy), recycling facilities and chemical disposal point always in a clean and tidy state. The site itself is contained within well maintained hedges cut at a height to give privacy and shelter and also,so as you can still enjoy the spectacular views over the Eden Valley and the surrounding area. The site is not a busy site and even though it sits adjacent to a main road, that is not too busy, and the traffic seems to calm down during the evening allowing you to have a peaceful nights sleep. We look forward to returning to this site later in the year.
Found the site easily from the M6 by following the site book directions. The site is very well maintained with the grass cut like a bowling green, EHU's are on all sides of the site so it's easy to pitch as you wish. The site is situated on the junction of a minor B road with the A6071, so some road noise can be expected however the night we stayed there was during haymaking time and tractors were travelling along this road almost constantly, but during the night we were not disturbed. The site is halfway between Longtown and Brampton (51/2 miles either way) Brampton is by far the the most interesting of the two towns with a couple of pubs, takeways, and cafes along with a Spar supermarket. parking is free (2 hours) with a disc which can be obtained from the Post Office without charge. The local beauty spot Talking Tarn is worth a look at, and Hadrians wall is not far away, in fact Hadrians wall footpath crosses the A6071 at Newtown just a couple of miles from the site. carlisle is also only 7 miles away. The nearest Pub is at Smithfield 1 mile but there are no footpaths along the A6071 and they don't sell food. We did find a Pub at Laversdale which did food and very nice it was too. Would we stay here again most certainly yes in fact we did so on our way home from Scotland, and will do in the future.
