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 communal shower/toilet block.

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.

There is a small shop/petrol station within walking distance. The nearest pub is just over a mile away and the local town of Penrith is only 5 minutes away which has all the local amenities such as cinema, leisure centre, supermarkets, train station and an array of food establishments.

Surely award-worthy!

Like so many others we stopped off here on our way north at half - term and were amazed by what we found. In beautiful surroundings, the young and open-hearted owners have worked so hard to create a superbly appointed CL. Our level, hardstanding pitch, with its own service point was only a skip from the outstanding toilet and shower facilities: must be seen to be believed! Children have a play area which looked very tempting. Surely an award-winner in the future and I can only hope that we will get a chance to spend more time there, though we'd be very lucky indeed to be blessed with such beautiful weather a second time!

Tranquil/scenic CL

Recently stayed here for 2 weeks for the first time. Enjoyed the stay so much that we have booked again this year and for next year, need I say more. Good quality facilities, showers and loos with daily clean hand towels. We were there during the recent storm and the awning managed to stay anchored! Nice open views across the fields with cattle and sheep grazing occasionally frolicking across the fields. David and Julie,who run the farm and site are very welcoming, sparing time to chat around their busy schedule. Penrith is a few minutes away down the motorway or there is the more scenic route from the roundabout at junction 41 depending on where you want to be in the town. Ullswater and the Rheged centre are worth a visit,easily accessible from here, Cockermouth is also worth a visit from here.

If only David did breakfasts .....

.... This would be 100% perfect. Have been to this site three times now and can't find a fault. Nothing is two much trouble for Julie. If you haven't been you need to. Highly recommended.

Woodhead farm what a little Gem!

Such a little Gem! We used this site as a stopover to & from Scotland, and what a fantastic little site. The site is just off the M6 and easy to find and access, Julia & David were wonderful host's so friendly and welcoming, the pitches are clean & well kept with water and electric hook up to each pitch. There is clean modern shower toilet facilities within close distance from each pitch. The views across the fields of this working farm are great, there is a little road noise but nothing too bad. We will defiantly be using the site again and not just for a quick stop over.

To tell, or not to tell? That is the question.

Whether it is better to tell and risk not being able to get in again, or do the injustice of not telling and doing a grave disservice to this C/L? It really is a little gem, in every way. It's scenic, easy to find, beautifully appointed - the shower room is better than mine at home. David and Julie are great hosts. Its ideally placed for the northern Lakes, and the Eden valley and the Howgill fells. Really lovely, and I shall definitely stay again - if I can get in now I've told!!!
