A lovely quiet site but not worth £20 a night.

Brackenthwaite Farm
A lovely, quiet site but maybe not worth £20 per night for the following reasons: Pros: Great walks from the door, Very tidy, well kept site, almost level pitches. Very, very quiet. Cons: There are 3 hard standing and 2 grass pitches. You don't get to choose and Motorhomes have priority for the hard-standing. We looked longingly at the empty hard-standing pitch all (wet) weekend! There are 2 posts for EHU, servicing 5 pitches. This means that on two of the pitches your EHU cable has to cross the field where it is driven over by cars/motorhomes accessing their pitch. The power supply is only 10 Amps The access roads from the A6 are quite busy and very narrow. In summary: a nice site but needs wifi and serviced pitch to be worth £20 in my view.

Beautifully situated CL

Brackenthwaite Farm
This is a real gem of a CL. There are both hard standing and grass pitches. The views are delightful - and the sunsets visible from here are spectacular. The grass is really well kept. The location is great for cycling, walking, birdwatching at Leighton Moss RSPB reserve. Silverdale and Arnside are close by and there is a lovely pub a short drive away - the Wheatsheaf at Beetham. We hope to return.

Beautiful Tranquil Site

Brackenthwaite Farm
Stayed here for the first time, though we know the area well from having a static caravan in the past.What a beautiful tranquil site within some of the best countryside. Easy access to the site from the M6 following the clear directions in the handbook. We were made very welcome by the owner who showed us to the CL field which has a choice of grass or hard standing pitches all with EHU. As we were the only ones on site for the first night, we had our choice of all pitches. The views are wonderful with many footpaths direct from site. Very peaceful with only the sound of birds or an occasional passing car. We will definitely be returning to this lovely place.

A little hideaway

Brackenthwaite Farm
45 minutes from home and this little CL was just a little gem found for those of us who are in the main self sufficient. On arrival, Matthew met us, he was very welcoming and highlighted the Nature Reserve close by for dog walks and also made us aware of other walks in the area. He then left us to it after telling us to pitch where we wanted. Hardstanding and grass pitches available, typical winter ground underfoot but firm enough and not holding any water. We had the site to ourselves so doggy was a allowed some freedom when leaving the MH for our walk and loved rolling around in the grass which I assume would be lovingly maintained from springtime but being winter had some length to it but was still tidy enough. Site itself along with house and holiday cottages is for sale but owners are still looking after it well. Access was very easy and views from pitch were lovely with open fields, limestone walls and herds of Deer at dusk. Very little noise apart from bird song and the odd passing car. True night darkness also with no lights on site, torches necessary for the last dog walk of the day. Rubbish and recycling point at entrance onto site, ehu available. Water is via a tap at the gate and chemical waste in the next field but readily accessible. At £15 per night, we judged this site as one of our visit again sites, close to home and lots of walks in the area.
