Farmyard

Basically we were asked to pitch in the driveway to the farm which at times was not only noisy but quite dangerous with some traffic moving quite quickly. The shower was less than basic and also required money in the meter to operate. Great access to the sticks pass route to Hellvelyn. Nice cafe and a pub relatively close.

Found it after overshooting as instructions not very clear. Do not rely on post code! Wonderful views on a working farm, a bit noisy but you expect this on a farm. Advertised as good TV signal but only via box provided by owner but signal then too strong! Never heard of this? Internet search reveals we needed a dB attenuator but given we were in the Lakes could not acquire one for days (not even Amazon prime).

Helpful owner

We had a friendly welcome here on this busy working farm. Walking from the site is easy and on the day of the recent royal visit to Keswick we were able to walk up the fell behind, along a ridge and down to Thirlmere and back along the side of the lake. As it’s a few miles out of Keswick we benefitted from the peace and tranquility, but the theatre and amenities of Keswick are there if you want them. Television reception is not brilliant but the owner offered us a cable. Eggs from the farm too were a bonus.

Lovely Countryside Site

The site is beautifully situated, and considering it is a working farm, well kept. It's not very large, but there is adequate space for all and , yes , there are farm noises at all hours - but what should you expect ? The facilities are OK. The weather was mixed, but that's the lake district for you. Overall we have a great few days here and would not hesitate to stay again.

Glad we went

We almost didn't book this CL because of the bad reviews that it received a couple of years ago, but decided to give it a try and were pleased that we did. We found it interesting to watch all the goings-on at the farm, and the surroundings and views are lovely. We always leave the van on site and found pleasant walks straight from the farm. We saw masses of bluebells and heard a cuckoo. If we had stayed longer we would have caught the bus into Keswick and maybe to Grasmere as well. Don't be put off by those old reviews- this is a nice place to stay.
