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.

Please check availability and make all bookings through website link (top right), where you will also find much more site information.

Lovely site

Crofton Hall
We have stayed at this site twice this year and due to go back again in August. The location was excellent for getting to Carlisle and to and from the motorway. The size of the pitches were incredible, the biggest pitch size we have ever stayed on. Each pitch had their own electric point and water supply. We will definitely make this a place to go to again and again.

Crofton Hall
Our second visit in twelve months the first last August for one night and so impressed we are back for a few nights now in late April The pitches are excellent and the entire site is well maintained WC/shower facilities are a short walk away offering and are clean but basic Crofton cafe on site is wonderful find breakfast and lunches are not to be missed and the glass shop next door has something for everyone. A lovely walk around the fishing lake next door very suitable for those with mobility issues including wheelchair users Carlisle and the Solway coast are very close and the northern Lake District is only a short drive away I’m sure we will return very soon

Lovely Site

Crofton Hall
Lovely site and everything was great including the pre site arrival instructions which is good as we didn't see anyone all weekend. Our only slight criticism was the family bathroom which despite having male and female toilets and 4 separate showers, it can only be used by one person or family at a time which must cause queues at peak periods.

Crofton Hall
We have been here quite a lot over the last 4 years and loved every minute. It's well looked after and peaceful. The pitches are level and huge as is the site. the owners are very nice, helpful and understanding as we have had to cancel twice this year due to issues with a new van. Local shops within a 10 0r 15 minute drive, the lakes maybe a 40 minute drive but well worth when you can come back to such a peaceful place and relax.
