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.

Low Moor Head Farm
This is what we like a site to be like, booked the site before arrival for six nights prior to heading to the Lake District. The road from Longtown to the site does narrow up as you approach the site and can be used by HGVs going to or coming from farms further along the road. An extra to this is when you are leaving the site in a car/caravan combo you have to have good neck muscles ( a mirror fitted across the other side of the road would be a benefit ) or get your passenger to stand in the road lol. When on the site, we were placed on pitch 4 nothing wrong with the pitch but you do need long fresh water and grey water pipes to reach the tap/drain. We placed the van and awning on the gravel and left the car in the parking space, no cars allowed on the grass. Adele brought us some eggs around which were much appreciated, the local food outlets are very good we had Sunday lunch at the Graham Arms Inn and the chips from the Esk cafe are very good. We had a ride out to see Carlisle Castle but as we have seen most of the Border Regions we stayed on-site and benefitted from the excellent weather the problem with that, was that one of the local biting insects decided to leave me with an infected leg. The day before we left Adele was talking to the member that was stopping on pitch 5 about being a Calor gas retailer and mentioned that she had a couple of Lites in stock, mine had just run out so a deal was done at a very good price. We will be back as Arnold says.

Very good site.

Low Moor Head Farm
Stopped here for one night travelling North. Very nice site with easy access and water and waste to each pitch. Very warm welcome on arrival and shown which pitch to go on. Toilet and shower were immaculate. No dog walk on site but lovely woods opposite which could be accessed through gate across the road. The lane was also very quiet for walking the dog. This would be a good site to explore the area so we will be back for a longer stay. One tiny gripe, the site is one way but the opposite way to a roundabout and naturally I went the wrong way round and was jokingly told off!

Just up our tree!!

Low Moor Head Farm
Our ideal site - Small (5 vans), fully serviced, adult only, dog friendly, forest walk directly across the road, fab views from the pitch, hard standing, spotless, friendly owners - what more could we ask!! Adele and Owen are very proud of their site, rightly so, and keep it immaculate. No OTT rules when you arrive and then Adele brought us some of their eggs as a welcome. We had a picnic table with sun brolly next to our pitch. Then, icing on the cake, the weekend we were there we bought afternoon tea which Owen and Adele organised from a local lady, collected and delivered to us. Delicious. We will be back!!!

Lovely CL

Low Moor Head Farm
We have just spent 4 nights at this CL and it was excellent. We were greeted on arrival by the owner who was friendly and helpful. Site is easy to get to only 10 mins from the motorway but it has a very rural feel and has nice views over towards the hills of the Lake District. There is a cabin on site where there is a toilet and shower which was handy and always kept spotlessly clean. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area as the site is close to the border towns, Solway coast and the Lake District. Highly recommend this site and we hope to return soon.

Just the break we needed!

Low Moor Head Farm
We will definitely be visiting this site again. It was just what we needed after what has been a crazy year. We were welcomed warmly by Owen, Adele and their son and they couldn’t have made us feel more welcome without being overwhelming. Anything we asked was never too much trouble. Loved waking up in the morning listening to the live stock and taking in the fantastic views. We really felt like we had got away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With Longtown village just over a mile down the road and Carlisle just a short drive away we didn’t want for anything. The facilities were spot on and kept to a high standard cleanliness wise and it was obvious that COVID was high on the agenda and that everything was being done to protect us.
