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.

Fabulous site!

Low Moor Head Farm
Just back from an impromptu weekend at this wonderful little CL! The owners are friendly and helpful. Their priority is making sure their guests have a lovely holiday on their site. The standard of the site is first class, and immaculately maintained! All pitches are fully serviced, there's an information room and a really well equipped toilet and shower facility! A super finishing touch was being presented with 6 freshly layed eggs! Highly recommend! 👌

Lovely little spot

Low Moor Head Farm
Lovely little site, well spaced out, good facilities and nice welcome. Lots of free range ducks, geese and chickens which entertained the dog! Was worried the roosters would be noisy overnight but they weren’t at all, think they were put inside overnight.

Relaxation at its best

Low Moor Head Farm
Wow. What can I say, except if your thinking of visiting this site then don’t wait, book now. From the moment we arrived we were put at ease, felt so welcomed by the owners. Nothing is a bother, there’s always a friendly smile and chat (sometimes about the most random things- love it) If your looking for total relaxation this is the site to book. The chickens, geese, ducks, hen cock all just “mosey” about and provide hours of entertainment. I think lots of people may have struggled with mental health over the last 18 months and I can honestly say that staying at low moor farm for a week has been a tonic and helped our mental health massively. We will definitely be back on the CL and I’m hoping the Shepard’s hut too. Thank you again guys your are all amazing. Xx

Perfect stopover

Low Moor Head Farm
We stayed for just one night en route to a holiday in Scotland. A lovely, peaceful CL with very well thought out pitches and facilities. On a farm with ducks, chickens and guinea fowl wandering merrily around. We plan to return for a longer stay.

Will be back

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.
