Beautiful peaceful site

Great site, good location and dog friendly. Access roads from A590 are narrow but passable even with large motorhome. Warm Cumbrian welcome and directions to pitch. Hardstanding pitches helped and there are plenty of electric points. TV reception reasonable. Really nice walk from site up to surrounding fells. Will stay again!

Lovely quite site

Review Crosslands What a lovely little campsite, so quiet and out of the way but also close enough to explore all of the Lake District. Great directions from the owner so we found them easily! We’re in a medium sized campervan and had no trouble down the lovely windy roads, bit tight in places when there was on coming traffic but not an issue most people moved out of the way and we shared the roads! The pitches were a good size for us, we also used our canopy and did not feel too close to other pitches. I guess if we had a large outfit eg car caravan awning we may feel closer but the other campers were all caravans at the time we stayed and most of them had stayed before with no problems. there’s an open grassed area at the bottom which plenty of people chose to use and this appeared to be more spacious. We met lots of friendly campers and would definitely go back there again 😄glad we ignored the negative reviews as these nearly put us off visiting! Perfect campsite 👌

A real treat!

We had an extended stay at Crossroads farm with David and Anne, our Hosts. It was an absolute delight to stay here and we cannot wait to get back. The site itself is lovely and rural, with great views across the valley and of the Lakeland mountains. We often saw red deer in the evening whilst sitting out enjoying the tranquility of this site. We also we're lucky enough to spot Osprey, buzzards and one red kite. Walks from the site are plentiful and varied and the owners are extremely knowledgeable about the area and more than willing to share this with you. We did many bike rides too, from easy country lanes to more challenging rides in Grisedale forest and again right on the doorstep. High Dam is a fantastic spot for wild swimming, kayaking etc and only a short stroll from the site. We cannot praise David and Anne highly enough. They really are the best Hosts. We stayed on the grass area in our motorhome and it was lovely and spacious with amazing views all round. The valley is a special place to be. You will not be disappointed. Deb and Jon

Crossland Farm in need of a refresh

Pitches very close together if using an awning then they will be very close Need paths to Elsan point and fresh water tap need wellies to get to them Sheep dropping all over and they were using the van as scratching post ad to keep showing them away also using the data lite dish to scratch on Scingle base to the hard standing full of moss and very sloppy No area for grey waste to dispose Electric tripping out when you put 2 things on so had to use gas on job could not use electric ring Quiet being the only good point Site in need of a total refresh

Beautifully secluded

Well off the beaten track, very peaceful and quiet, lovely views. Owners very helpful. No TV or phone, site basic - all of which we wanted! The directions in the handbook are fine and probably the only safe way to get there towing a van. Although the approach from the main A590 road over several miles is long and occasionally narrow, the only real problems are at the start (after you leave the main road where there is a narrow blind hill), and at the end after turing into the road to Crosslands Farm. There isn't anywhere to stop at the farm without blocking the road, so you can either do this or continue to the site which is about 200 yards further on and where there is plenty of room to turn. Don't do what we did which was to try to pull in opposite the farm, where there is a low roof which we collided with causing some damage
