A Hidden Treasure

Ellerbeck Farm and Fishery
A secluded and peaceful site set in a clearing of woodland and overlooking the fishing lake. This site is surrounded by the breath taking landscape of Cumbria's hills and open fields. Despite its quite location, it is only 2 miles from the center of Cockermouth. All pitches have hard standing with plenty of of space between each pitch and the owners were very welcoming and friendly. I will without doubt be making frequent visits to this site.

Beautiful tranquil site set in the most beautiful surroundings.

Ellerbeck Farm and Fishery
Absolutely beautiful couldn’t wish for a nicer quieter place. Owner very friendly & helpful & even brought us fresh farm eggs for our first breakfast. Shower & toilet very clean. For a CL site very good facilities. All the bins are set out for recycling & emptied daily, couldn’t fault it. Beautiful walks in the woodlands & around the lake & situated on the outskirts of the lovely village of Brigham. Ideally located site for visiting the Lake District & the coastal areas. Charges £12 per night for our Motorhome, well worth it. Will definitely return. Thank you to the owners for our lovely stay. See you again soon👍

Great little site with excellent fishing.

Ellerbeck Farm and Fishery
Stayed here foe week in June. A quiet site with shared facilities. Shower & toilet were basic but very clean with plenty of hot water. These are shared by anglers. The site is very well kept with plenty of space between pitches. The EHUs were well places - one per pitch. The bins, water disposal & fresh water were near the showers. Bins emptied every day. 10 mins walk to village shop that stocked everything we needed - fresh food, milk, tinned goods, beer, wine & ice creams. The meat from local farms was first class. Pity there's no pub now in the village. I was there for the fishing & it didn't disappoint. Primarily it's carp @ bream water. The carp were spawning so showed zero interest in any baits whatsoever. In the 7 days I was there I didn't see a carp caught. I did catch lots of quality bream though, best at 6lbs 10oz. The carp were there but on the surface & wouldn't even look at floating baits. A great week though & I'll definitely return. The charges were £12 per night for me campervan including EHU plus £5 per day for fishing. Highly recommended.

Hidden Gem

Ellerbeck Farm and Fishery
Only stopped here for a night as a starting point on the C2C cycle route. Its easy to find off the A66 and we were greeted by the owner on arrival. Its all quite self contained there is a shower and a toilet which were pretty clean and water and waste etc all within easy reach. Nice dog walk around the fields and its only 10 mins form Workington and Cockermouth. If your around in this part of the lakes it would make a good base for exploring the area.

Our kind of site

Ellerbeck Farm and Fishery
This lovely little site ticked all our boxes. Greeted by a friendly owner who gave us our own choice of pitches and showed us where the services were. All 5 pitches were hard standing and level with EHU. The pitches are in a lovely suntrap surrounded by a woodland dog walk and the only noise is birds singing. There are two fishing lakes which are very well kept and hubby says full of healthy fish. All in all this is a site we will definitely be visiting again
