Why stay here ...

Our CL site is set on a small working farm in the idilic Eden Valley, between the Lake District National Park and the Outstanding Pennines.

Adults and children are most welcome (no dogs allowed). There are hard standing and grass pitches with electrical hookups and space for an awning. There is also a shower/toilet block. Shepherd hut & cottages also available on farm.

The site is ideally situated behind a small wooded area up the farm lane, within easy reach from junction 41 of the M6. It is perfectly located for exploring the surrounding area with Lake Ullswater only 10 minutes away, Carlisle 15 minutes and Keswick and Kendal 30 minutes. Given the location it is the ideal stopover for breaking up journeys into Scotland.

We stayed here for two nights on our way to Scotland it was a lovely site, the showers were very clean and the owners very helpful. It was easy to get to off junction 41 of the M6. We will not hesitate in using this site again.

Stayed one night. Fresh water and EHU on each pitch. Some road noise, but not intrusive. Lovely showers and toilet. Recommend as not far from M6

All round excellence

Woodhead Farm Caravan Site
Lovely CL with choice of 7 pitches, although one is smaller than the others which are very generous. There is a well kept little play area and two individual shower rooms that are fully equipped with large shower, sink, toilet etc and each pitch has its own water tap. Shower rooms are individually designated one male/one female and as the site is small timing is not usually a problem. There was even an evening visit from an ice cream van on occasion. Whilst we were there the site had a mixture of very short stays and longer ones so sometimes full and always interesting. It is a very short drive from the motorway and easy to find with clear instructions. Penrith is about 5 minutes drive away and it’s worth knowing about the 3hrs free parking at Sainsburys/New Squares, the 1hr disk scheme and 2hrs parking at M&S. It is a very compact town so all the parking is close by and we happily browsed the town and had lunch with the free parking several days. You have Keswick and Carlisle relatively short drives away but beware of going westwards and the Hardknott Pass. Lovely owners, always busy and on top on things, cleaning, mowing etc. Was initially dubious of the electric cap, people worry enough about things like that at home without having the added pressure of it on holiday however: we used things as ‘normal’ for the first 24hours and used just under 10 units. By turning off the 24hr heated towel rail, only heating the water once a day, minimal heating due to nice weather and gas for brews instead of electric, we averaged under 6 units a day. We don’t have a TV and any heating was restricted to a partitioned 1/3 of the caravan. If we had been a large caravan with family and it was a cold spell our usage would no doubt have been much more but for us in summer, it was not a problem and an interesting exercise in use. And of course, we could have made more use of the gas. All round brilliant site.

Great CL well placed for Penrith

Woodhead Farm Caravan Site
We stayed here for two nights as a stop over as we travelled up to Glasgow due to it's proximity to motorway. However, it has much more to offer than that. The hardstanding pitches have electricity and water. The toilet block is of a really high standard ( although we tend to use our own facilities) . I would come here again.

Fantastic site

Woodhead Farm Caravan Site
We stayed 10 days here the owners Dave and Julie are brilliant if you want to talk to them they’ve always got time for a chat. The site is in stunning condition the pitches are easily big enough for our twin axle caravan all are hard standing with water and electric for every pitch. Fantastic toilet block huge shower, toilet and sink with dressing area as well there is one for men and one for women which Julie cleans every day and checks throughout the day. The site is ideal for access to the whole of the Lake District we did two boat trips loads of places to visit coast is not too far. I’m a cyclist so loads of great rides Hills are in abundance. We will definitely return.
