A working farm with excellent access to multiple Wainwrights

Having read some negative reviews we were slightly apprehensive, however the owners are down to earth Cumbrian hill farmers. The area we were allocated was very good. You may need blocks but the area has lovely views We came here for access to the fells, which totally delivered. No, there’s no WiFi or TV signal but that’s not what you come to this part of Cumbria for. Shower immaculately clean with loads of hot water, though it is £1, and the toilet again, scrupulously clean. Come here for access to the Dodds, Helvellyn, Thirlmere and a farm experience. Recommended.

Worst CL site I have seen

We were booked in to this site, first of all the directions are appalling, we only found it after my husband walked up a lane. It is the worst CL site we had ever seen. I am amazed that Caravan and Motorhome club accepted it. When we arrived there were 4 men jet washing scramble bikes. Loose dogs barking as I walked about. Our impression straight away was that it was a travellers site. The owner eventually came out and pointed to 2 places that we could chose, one was on the side of the road where there would have been nowhere to sit out. Vehicles would have been passing all the time. The second pitch was in a very small area where there were other vans that had obviously been there for a long time, plant pots around the caravan.Again not much space to site out. I immediately told the owner that I wasn't impressed and wouldn't be staying. I would not recommend this site to anyone.

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.
