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.

Beautiful views, helpful owners

We have just spent a very enjoyable 9 nights here over Easter. The family were always friendly and helpful, despite clearly being busy, even lending us a sky box and aerial lead to help us get TV reception (Freesat not freeview here - may save others time!) They even organised some of the best weather I can remember in many years for us :-) Our kids enjoyed their time on the farm and not once did I feel they were at any risk from the dogs - they were always friendly. To be able to look out on the fells and see the sheep (and lambs) with your morning coffee is fabulous and we made the most of the walking available from the site and nearby. The site is not the biggest but there was plenty of space for our van and awning and we would happily go back in the future.

Working farm with beautiful views, perfect for walkers

A lovely location, with the warmest of welcomes. The cl area is quite small behind the farmhouse and some levelling is required but is on hard ground so no issues with being stuck. The working dogs do bark early and farm noises are also early but to be expected. W.c. and shower, whilst not in the first flush of youth are kept spotlessly clean. The half hourly bus service between Keswick and Lancaster run at the foot of the farm access road and we used them frequently which saved moving the motorhome once pitched. We really hope to stay here again, enjoying the hospitality of this very hardworking family.
