Why stay here ...

A warm welcome is extended to caravanners and mobile home owners to come and relax and to visit our lovely area. Our 1.25 acre lawned site is located just outside the small village of Laithes, away from main roads. All our pitches are level and have access to electric hook ups and stunning views over open countryside, woodland and fells. The site overlooks our adjoining 2.5 acre field, ensuring your privacy.

The sunsets over Blencathra are breathtaking and are well worth looking out for. Located on the edge of the Lake District National Park, we are an ideal base for touring, walking and cycling. Our site is ideal for those wishing to break their journey going to, or coming from Scotland for an overnight stay and for those wishing a long stay to appreciate our beautiful area.

Spacious Cl with entertaining chickens

A large CL with electric hook up points along a fence line in the centre. The chickens were a great source of entertainment! Fresh water was from a tap near the entrance and the chemical toilet point behind a gate and near the toilet for use by motorhomers/caravaners. The grass was short and the entire site looked well cared for. We stayed here for ease of access to the Skelton Agricultural Show. We found a circular walk to do that was slightly over grown, and attempted another which a farmer advised us not to do (it went through his farm yard so maybe not keen to encourage walkers or else it really was a walk that had not been maintained) - nothing to do with the CL but for information really. The Cl was peaceful and a lovely place to stay.

Perfect site for our 5th wheel

This was our first CL and only our 4th campsite with our new 5th Wheel. We were slightly worried about access and manoeuvrability but had no problems negotiating the entrance on arrival. Once in we had bags of room to park up and had a choice of either of the two fields. As a totally grass site we were fine as we were in the middle of a heatwave and the ground was bone dry, the grass manicured and pretty flat. We used the hookup which was fine. The single WC was perfectly adequate for our needs. Views were superb across to the Northern Fells where we took several walks and some wild swimming in the Lowther and Eden rivers. All in all a friendly site that was a perfect antidote after 3 weeks in larger sites. We'll be back.

Just perfect.

Just returned from an eight night stay on this beautifully kept site. We stayed on the larger field of the two which gave our two boys plenty of space to play. The hens roaming freely around the site were a delight to see and very entertaining, 1 hen even came into our caravan daily. Great tasting eggs to purchase from them too. The weather was very good which was an added bonus, many many places to visit within easy distance the area is just outstanding. If you like a site full of peace and quiet (apart from the roosting crows!) then this is a must! We have travelled about abit in our van but this was by far one of the most enjoyable holidays we have had. Thank you to the lovely mr and mrs noble for such a great site. Have booked again already to secure a spot as i do think it has its returning members. . The turner family.

SO PEACEFUL.

Came across this CL as we were needing access to North Lakes for a change. We had recently been to Penrith which is a vibrant town with all you will need and more. The site is really well signposted and gives you lots of choices as where to pitch,{bring 2 power lines to increase your choices}. Peaceful yet so near to the shops and its so nice to put another spin on The Lakes by being North.
