Low Moor Head is a very peaceful, quiet site just outside the hamlet of Easton, near Longtown the gateway from England to the Scottish Borders. The site is located within one acre lawned area, on a slight incline, with the beautiful backdrop of Heatherbelt Wood, part of Netherby Estates. All our pitches are spacious, all hard standing with both electric and individual water supplies. On arrival visitors and pets are greeted with a warm, friendly welcome, together with six free range complimentary eggs.  In addition we have a small car park on the site for guests, which also houses our heated toilet/shower, with disabled facilities.

In adjacent fields which border the campsite visitors can enjoy watching our Shetland ponies play, together with  3 donkeys, ducks chickens, 2 pigmy goats and sheep.  In early March visitors can enjoy the new born lambs as they play!

The site is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area known as the Debatable Lands, battle ground of the Border Reivers, which is steeped in history, and close to South West Scotland, the World famous Gretna Green, historic Carlisle, Lake District and the Solway coast.

The town is within a mile of the site and provides an excellent selection of shops, hotel, restaurants, cafes, chemist,  Post Office and supermarket. Visitors can enjoy a walk or cycle into the town, where they can take a beautiful riverside walk, along the banks of the river Esk a renowned salmon river (speak to owner re permit), or visit the Coop house, Arthuret Church, Netherby Hall or the largest sheep sales market in the country.

We are located an easy 6 mile drive from Hadrians Wall. There is also a new Border Reivers cycle route in addition to Sustrans Route 7 - please ask the CL owners for more details when you arrive. There is a summer house information and recreational area which provides tourist information, local history and other local information.

Opposite the entrance to the CL are three woodland walks of varying distance and excellent for dog walking (dogs must be on leads at all times) and local wildlife (red squirrels and roe deer as well as wild birds and flaura and fauna)

Luxury Norwegian log cabin, sleeping four with hot-tub available, please speak to owner.

There are smart meters on each pitch. If the daily limit is exceeded, additional electric will have to be purchased.

Wifi is free. 

Please note: directions - when nearing the CL please use driving directions and not Sat Nav.

Warm welcome by owners and livestock alike!

We have just spent the bank holiday weekend in the most wonderful surroundings. The owners Owen and Adele couldn't have done anymore to make our stay enjoyable. The site was immaculate as to were the shower facilities. Great care and thought into all aspects of the CL experience. They were very welcoming and had great knowledge of cafes and restaurants in the area. We have a camper and Glawning, (bell tent with wood burner and driveaway awning), although they had never seen one before, they were very open to the idea and everyone on site was intrigued by our setup and came over to have a look. What a wonderful attitude to a relatively new idea. We will definitely be revisiting Low Moor very soon.

Peaceful Site

Stopped over at this site en route to Scotland. A very well maintained site - good layout with plenty of space between pitches, hardstanding, easy to access water and electricity points and a clean, well equipped shower room. We enjoyed our stay at the site and were given half a dozen eggs which were much appreciated. The farm animals are very entertaining and not at all noisy! Our only concern was the policy regarding the use of electricity on the site. When we arrived we asked Mrs Taylor about what was required if we exceeded the daily limit on electricity. She told us that, with an Alde central heating system in use, we would exceed the limit - but we weren't told what the limit was, nor how to monitor it, which was all a bit confusing. Although Mrs Taylor said she would monitor our electricity usage, we didn't have a clue how to monitor it ourselves and were concerned that we would run out of electricity in the middle of the night! However the next day, Mr Taylor advised us that there is a meter on the electricity post, so you can see what your usage is. We still couldn't find any indication of what the actual limit is though, so we were none the wiser by the time we left! Fortunately we didn't need to have the heating on too often, but it still was a concern and I found it offputting. It would have been much easier had we been given all the necessary information on arrival. I would recommend therefore that if you are going to this site in winter, you check this with the owners beforehand and pre-purchase extra electricity if required. A lady who was staying in a campervan told us that she was unable to turn the heating up in the shower room as there was a cable tie on the heater which prevented her from doing so! This didn't affect us as we use our own shower in the caravan, but it would put me off going to this site in the colder months. I have been on other sites where a polite request has been made for people to not leave their heating on when they are away from their vans as it racks up the electricity, and I'm more than happy to comply with this.

Outstanding CL

We recently stayed at Low Moor Head Farm for two nights on our way down from Scotland. I can honestly say that in over forty years of caravanning we have never been made so welcome. The site is perfect every pitch is a super pitch. A charming cabin in the field houses a beautifully equipped shower room with full disabled facilities. A small summerhouse is the information room. There is so much to see and do nearby that we will certainly return. If only all CLs were this good.

Snowy week

We’ve just spent a week here on this lovely site, all by ourselves. The day after we arrived it began to snow with the ‘Beast from the East’ and then we had Storm Emma. We were safe and snug in our caravan although the water froze. The site is lovely and spacious, with a good shower/toilet block. There are woods across the road where you can go for a walk but you need wellies at this time of the year. We got out every day down to the shops for supplies, which are about a mile away but didn’t have the opportunity to explore the area much. The snow was so bad that all non essential travel wasn’t advisable and we had everything that we needed in the caravan. The owners popped around to see us bringing eggs and stayed for a chat. They were very busy with their farm animals and especially the sheep that were due to lamb. There are plenty of farm animals around to watch in the fields. We did get out and drove to Gretna Green and Carlisle. Had the weather been ok we would have done much more exploring as it’s an ideal site to get out in all directions. We will have to come again when the weather is warmer.

Frozen to the core

This was our first stay on this site for a long weekend in December. We were greeted to a very warm reception by both Owen & Adele on a very cold winters day. The site is immaculate and the hosts very friendly. We arrived on a very cold Friday, woke to an even colder Saturday morning and everything was frozen solid. Sunday was even colder but didn't deter us at all. We enjoyed two beautiful clear days out in the lakes and in Dumfries & Galloway which are ideally accessible from the site. We packed up on Monday morning to -8 degrees ( -11 during the night) and fully enjoyed our stay. We'll be back in the new year for sure.
