Best CL so far on this tour, A Gem of a place.

Crosslands Farm
If you want real peace and tranquility but still within easy reach of all the Lake District attractions then this is the place for you. We arrived here three days ago and only intended a two night stop but we are going to stay a few days longer as its lovely. It is extremely quiet, you could hear a pin drop here in the dead of night if there is no wind. Lovely views and walks from the site. Michelle my Wife, did High Dam the other day which you can do directly form the CL (Small tarn / lake and summer swimming spot up in the hills). We are in a 7m motorhome but we carry a scooter on the back so its ideal for us to travel around some of the most stunning areas in the Lakes. Just a 15 min ride to the ferry across Windermere, Hawkshead, Amblside, Consiton etc all in easy reach as are to the south Cartmel and Grange over Sands. The roads here though between Coniston and Windermere are narrow and take a bit of getting used to but we are finding our way now. Please please please though take notice of the carefully provided instructions from Anne and David and follow them to the letter (very easy really) as to how to get here and do not rely on the sat nav. The road from the south up to the CL is totally fine though as long as you stick to it. Its a very quiet road and in the four miles or whatever it is from the main road we never met a single car but it wouldnt have been a big issue if we had. Spot on! We will return for sure.

Really liked this site. Will definitely make a return visit at some point.

Crosslands Farm
Nice little spot. Thoroughly recommended. Owner was very friendly & responded to emails within 24 hours. No mobile signal on Three. Other people have commented that Vodafone is ok but I haven't tested that. Like most CL's, it is a working farm & is surrounded by other working farms, so expect a bit of farm traffic. We went early July & there were regular tractors driving past the site with hay bails, so I guess it was hay season. Very quiet at night. As for most locations in the Lake District, the access roads around the site are a little narrow, especially if you have a big caravan, but you are going to have this issue wherever you go. The site is split across 2 fields. The main CL which looked very tidy & well kept, then a second "overflow" field about 100m or so away on the opposite site of the road. We stayed in the second as the main CL was full. Both sites have electric hook ups. If staying in the overflow, there are 3 sockets near the gate..........make sure you have a long lead with you! My biggest annoyance was that there was no chemical disposal point in the second site. You have to put the toilet tank in the boot of the car & drive it across to the main CL to empty it. To be fair, it would probably cost too much to install, maintain & keep emptying a second chemical pit. I guess that the ultimate test is whether or not I would make a return visit & stay there again.......yes I would!

Very peaceful site

Crosslands Farm
Lovely peaceful site in beautiful area. Levelling blocks are essential on every pitch. No TV signal and no phone signal for Three network but perfect for Vodaphone. CDP had no water hose although there was a no drinking water tap further down the site all about access to supplies I guess Lovely walks from site. Access roads very narrow but doable with care..

Beautiful peaceful site

Crosslands Farm
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

Crosslands Farm
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 👌
