Repeat visit and no doubt many more...

Returned to this site and found it as enjoyable. As we were arriving we came across a deer and a badger foraging in the orchard where we were bases. We saw the deer several times which made the stay even more enjoyable. Located amongst the geese and also being on a working farm so seeing the cows and hens just adds to the visit. For anyone coming, definitely use the entrance to Lowther holiday park and then veer off to the right near the hut and near their bins. It’s located so well to Penrith, Ullswater and Lowther Park and Castle. The latter is a fabulous walk through the holiday park adjacent their own camping pitches and then a path which leads into estate - v much recommended. We walk into Arkham where there’s a couple decent pubs. Mr Fisher is so nice - even leaving us a box of eggs and a bag of apples. Definitely coming back soon.

Tranquil and peaceful site .we loved it

We booked this site as it was the nearest to Lowther Castle and Estate were we were attending the Lowther Country Show. The site set in a good size grasse field with a couple of hard standings. Jamie the farmer was so friendly had many chats with him when he was feeding his Geese which were adjacent to were we chose to park our van. The views of the surrounding countryside were amazing. We were also lucky to catch the Roe Deer visiting in the late evening to snack on the fallen apples and early morning. The area has an abundance of wildlife. Although it is a working farm it didn't bother us as we used to live on one. Was great catching a glimpse of the cows with their new born cows in the barns then a couple of days later seeing them out in the field . We walked for miles around the area with our dogs straight from the site through the woods and down through Lowther Holiday Park and through on to the estate. We enjoyed the walks by the river and loved finding different routes to walk following the map at the beginning of the estate. You can use the shop and the pub on the holiday park which we did infact we only used our car twice whilst we were there to get a couple of essentials and a trip in to Penrith. We have come home feeling really relaxed. We will definatley be booking on this site again..

Great site, views and so friendly

Recently stayed here and nothing but praise. Both hard and grass standings and was lovely being around a working farm. Couldn’t hear anything though which was good. Lovely views over the lowther estate. The family who owned / worked the farm were really friendly. Being elevated over lowther holiday park meant could hear Kendal calling so a free music festival as a bonus! Would definitely use the Lowther Park Drive and veer off to the right rather than the designated route which isn’t ideal. Overall great break and 100% coming back!

Good site and good value

A mixture of grass and hardstanding pitches on a friendly and well maintained diary farm site. This site is well placed for easy access to Ullswater, Penrith and Lowther. You are within easy walking distance of the nearby Lowther Caravan Park with both a pub and a camp shop open to non residents and the village of Yanwath's pub is only around 25 minutes away on foot. Very friendly owner and farming family. Clean loo. All for a £10 per night : bargain!

Really splendid site

Yanwath Woodhouse is a splendid site with lovely walks and fine views of the Westmorland Hills and forests. This CL is on part of the Lowther Castle Estate with the River Lowther flowing nearby. Penrith is only two or three miles away with lots of supermarkets, shops, pubs and restaurants. Calor Gas is available at the holiday park just down the hill at a reasonable price. Ullswater is about five or six miles drive from the CL down the lanes beyond Pooley Bridge. The farmer at Yanwath Woodhouse is as friendly and helpful as you will ever find and sells free range eggs at the farm. The electricity supply is very good with no problems at all, the drinking water is of the best quality and the waste services are really well placed. Other reviews have mentioned the field being wet. As a northerner I can say that rain is not a phenomenon in these parts and Algiers is the place for people who are not keen on it. This CL is ideal for visiting the north lakes and a great stopover for people travelling to Scotland due to being immediately off the A6 and only five or six minutes off the M6 and with no narrow lanes or hedges to scratch the van. We have visited the site three times now and it is one of our favourites to which we will be returning.
