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 👌

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
