A nine-van free-for-all.

Yanwath Woodhouse
There were already six vans on the site when we arrived, so I spoke to the owner's son as I was concerned we would not be allowed to remain, despite booking a month previously. He said not to worry, and blamed his father. Another van arrived that night making eight, one left the next day but another two came the following day, making nine. The field is quite large, although only two hook-up posts each with 4 connectors, so the ninth van used a solar panel. The problem was that the ninth van parked too close to us, less than five metres, which meant we felt overlooked, and claustrophobic. Had we been on site when they arrived I would have asked them to move further away, but they were already set up when we arrived back that day. And they were friends of the owner, in and out of the farmhouse, so when I complained to the son again and said the ninth van was illegally positioned and he risked a report to the club, nothing was done. He said he knew they would be in trouble if the club inspector paid them a visit. This was all such a shame as the field is easily big enough to accommodate nine, if there were more hook-ups, but in the end we were not sorry to leave. In over ten years of using CL's, this is the only site where I felt it necessary to contact the club.

Lowther castle Yanwath woodhouse farm

Yanwath Woodhouse
Great little site, on a working farm. The location is walking distance to Lowther Castle and gardens (~ 1.5 miles) which has some great gardens and highland cows. Its a lovely walk down through the woods and over the river. Theres some nice pubs nearby, bee hive (local boozer) and George and Dragon (posh foody), there was more pubs nearby too, the punch bowl, we missed but looked great. It's not far from pooley bridge (~5 miles) as we popped down for a pint. All in all a nice spot, only stayed 1 night, I'd recommend staying at the top bit of the orchard field if it's been raining. Would happily return, owner friendly and helpful.

Fabulous Weekend

Yanwath Woodhouse
July 2020 after a very strange few months of "lockdown" we booked this site for ourselves and some close friends and had the most lovely experience despite the weather. We had the whole site to ourselves (4 units in total) as there was no one else there on the other pitch. The site is beautifully located not far from Eamont Bridge and Askham, directly above the large Lowther Caravan site. This place was, in our opinion, so so much better in EVERY respect. The owners were lovely and even lent us some chairs on the first night as one of the couples had forgotten to bring theirs. The large field is slightly sloping but relatively flat, mostly grass pitches but there is a small hardstanding near the elsan and water point and a single toilet. TV reception is excellent and EHU was very much appreciated. Having the site to ourselves was a bonus we'd not really anticipated, meaning we could sit out at night until after dark chatting and catching up without the risk of disturbing anyone else. We only live an hour away and I do hope we can get to visit again soon, In short, we loved the place!

A lovely site in a great location

Yanwath Woodhouse
We stayed here one night and enjoyed our stay. The site is very well-maintained. It's situated in a grass field next to the farmhouse and buildings, with some fruit trees. It's in a brilliant location for exploring the eastern side of the Lake District. Our only reservation was the traffic noise from the nearby M6. This may not bother others (as,indeed, previous reviews indicate( If traffic noise does bother you then take this into consideration. Following the instructions re access to the site, we drove along a very dusty and bumpy road for quite a distance. We then realised the importance of the advice provided by a previous reviewer. It's best to access the site through the Lowther Estate veering off right up the road that leads to the site!

Lovely CL

Yanwath Woodhouse
An immaculate CL with plenty of options for choosing where to pitch, the grass area was well looked after. The fresh water tap, grey waste emptying and chemical toilet point all easy to use, plus a very clean toilet as well. We noticed signs at the Lowther Estate saying the dog walk was for residents of the park only, which seems different from previous reviews - we didn't check this out so unsure what it really meant. The CL was peaceful and as on a working farm had lots to see! We only stayed one night as passing through, but would recommend this CL as it was clean and so well looked after.
