Crofton Hall Certificated location (CL) is set in the walled garden of Crofton Hall, at the heart of the Crofton estate. Whilst the Hall no longer stands, many of the surrounding buildings still remain intact and give a real 'country estate' feel to the area. The walled garden itself is around two acres, through which we have spread five generously spaced pitches, each with its own water supply and electricity hookup. Waste water and chemical disposal points are provided in the corner of the site, along with refuse and recycling bins.
Located in the wall of the garden are several small buildings, one of which contains a full-sized table tennis table as well as a notice board displaying local services that may be of interest. Just outside the garden, in the West Wing of the Stable Block of the estate, is a well-equipped bathroom with two WC's, four shower cubicles and two sinks with mirrors, lighting and electric shaver points. Also located in this building are a small lending library and a selection of toys and games for younger children. Just across the lane from the site is the old estate Dairy. Guests have the opportunity to visit the Crofton Cheese Farm, where you can watch the cheese being made from locally sourced cows' and goats' milk and can even purchase some if desired.
Also located close by is the Crofton Fishing Lake. The lake is a real wildlife magnet and makes for a beautiful walk in all seasons. Walkers will have the opportunity to see the resident family of grey herons, and otters have been spotted here too.
The estate was once ringed by stone walls which created a deer park for roe and fallow deer. Some of these can still be seen when walking on the public footpaths around the site.
The CL is centrally located between several areas of outstanding natural beauty, including the Northern Lake District, The Solway Coast and the forest parks and picturesque towns of South-West Scotland. The Border City of Carlisle is just eight miles away.
Well-behaved dogs are permitted on site at no extra charge. Our pricing is charged at a flat-rate and includes your caravan, awning, car(s), pets, children, extra adults, power, water and usage of the bathroom.
