Laid back approach

Shoulthwaite Farm
This is our third time here for one or two nights each time. This is our go to site in the lakes. Down to earth farmers run the site. It is rough and ready, but that is part of the charm. Yes, there were 7 units on site this time, but we were thankful to be accommodated. There was no overcrowding. We have been on other sites with 5 units which were much more crowded. Stunning views all round and easy access to Keswick and south to Grasmere etc

Beautiful views and friendly welcome

Shoulthwaite Farm
We just spent 9 nights here and loved every minute. The views are beautiful, the stream running alongside is the only noise and it's fairly easy to get to Keswick and also Grasmere & Ambleside. Walks from the site or a short drive, and the fells all around you. Bus stop at the end of the drive. The site is grassy but hardstanding pitches which was helpful in the wet and the owners were really welcoming and friendly throughout our stay. Definitely one to return to.

A lovely, relaxing stay

Shoulthwaite Farm
We have just returned from a lovely week's stay at this certified location. Very peaceful place with lovely, friendly owners and amazing views of the surrounding hills. Easy to reach off a main road. Babbling stream running behind the site. Despite the rain, the pitch drained really well. We fed the visiting red squirrel each morning with monkey nuts. Turn right out of the site to get to Thirlmere which is a lovely walk/ride around. Turn left out of the site to walk into Keswick. Regular bus service in both directions. We had a very relaxing stay and we will be returning again next year.

Disappointingly overcrowded

Shoulthwaite Farm
Newbies! We've just started motorhoming. This was our 8th site. We arrived at the allotted time only to have a 1hr wait whilst "our" pitch was vacated. So, No ease of arrival/welcome was definitely not good. 5 van site? Does 8 equal 5 ... then No. I have photos of the site with 8 vans on it plus occupants. One of these was sited in the barn/farm vehicle shed. We'd booked 5 days but left after 3 as the situation got no better. It was pretty cold when we were there. The 16amps may well be "spread" across the pitches as we could not cook & heat the van at the same time without overloading the supply so we used our gas. Yes .. brand new motorhome so we do know how many amps were pulling. That being said the farming family really are nice, albeit a tad naive pehaps. Access to lots of walks & bike rides is excellent right from the site & we so love this area. We've walked in this area for some 20 years before motorhoming ... this is not the first time we've seen the site with more than 5 vans on it. So, if you want that overcrowded, hemmed in feeling like a club site then this is the place for you. Such a pity.

Cracking site

Shoulthwaite Farm
Very easy to find. Spacious with lovely views, peaceful and quiet. Loved the sound of the stream with waterfall running beside site. About 3 miles from Keswick with shops & pleasant gardens. Unfortunately the walking paths from the site are still closed & will be until October, at the earliest!
