Spring visit to Moss Thorn

This Cl is easily access being about 3 mls from the M6. It has a wide entrance off the quiet B5288 from Penrith to Greystoke and has 5 H/S pitches, some of them newly laid, with EHU, views over the adjacent fields and a toilet. Although there is no dog walk on the site there's a broad grass verge from the gate for about 100 m to a farm track ideal for walking ones dog(s). Penrith, 3 mls away, has all the usual supermarkets. The site is handy for exploring the northern lakes, being about 8 mls from Ullswater and 15 from Keswick, and Rheged, the Lakeland Heritage Centre is only 4 mls away. At £10 pn this site is a real bargain and we will certainly return.

WELL-PLACED AND WELL-KEPT SITE

We stayed at this site for the first two weeks in June and found it easily accessible and easy to find following the instructions in the Club handbook.   Ideal centre for exploring the Northern Lakes and the Penrith area and for the M6 to Scotland. A well-organised farm, with hardstandings marked out and lovely views. .   As "townies", we enjoyed watching the grass being cut in the fields and then being piled high in the barns;  and a horse being shod - we now have one of the old horse-shoes hanging on our wall at home. Good pub, the Boot and Shoe, nearby in Greystoke. Would certainly return.

Handy Stopover

Stayed one night on way back home.  Handy for M6. Nice outlook, easy to find good facilities although toilet had run out of soap and paper towels.  Would use again.  Good value at £10.
