A RETURN VISIT TWICE

Visited in 2017 for the first time and enjoyed our stay so we thought we would visit again this year.We booked 2weeks in late July & early Aug just as the weather was changing but no worries.A good stay as there is plenty to do in the area. Seeing that we still enjoyed the site we booked another 2 weeks after visiting Scotland on our way back home.The repeat visit went down well so who knows about future travels. Thank you Mr & Mrs Fisher hope you keep busy.

Spring visit to Moss Thorn

This Cl is easily access being about 3 mls from the M6. It has a wide entrance off the quiet B5288 from Penrith to Greystoke and has 5 H/S pitches, some of them newly laid, with EHU, views over the adjacent fields and a toilet. Although there is no dog walk on the site there's a broad grass verge from the gate for about 100 m to a farm track ideal for walking ones dog(s). Penrith, 3 mls away, has all the usual supermarkets. The site is handy for exploring the northern lakes, being about 8 mls from Ullswater and 15 from Keswick, and Rheged, the Lakeland Heritage Centre is only 4 mls away. At £10 pn this site is a real bargain and we will certainly return.

WELL-PLACED AND WELL-KEPT SITE

We stayed at this site for the first two weeks in June and found it easily accessible and easy to find following the instructions in the Club handbook.   Ideal centre for exploring the Northern Lakes and the Penrith area and for the M6 to Scotland. A well-organised farm, with hardstandings marked out and lovely views. .   As "townies", we enjoyed watching the grass being cut in the fields and then being piled high in the barns;  and a horse being shod - we now have one of the old horse-shoes hanging on our wall at home. Good pub, the Boot and Shoe, nearby in Greystoke. Would certainly return.

Handy Stopover

Stayed one night on way back home.  Handy for M6. Nice outlook, easy to find good facilities although toilet had run out of soap and paper towels.  Would use again.  Good value at £10.

M6 stop-over or holiday in the Lake District? You choose.

The route from M6 via A66, Mile Lane and B5288 is easily navigated - 'though a bit counter-intuitive for those of us who prefer to think in straight lines. Access into the farm is through wide gate-posts and (once inside) these is plenty of space to set up a reverse into the 5 parallel pitches. The water point and toilet sluice are close, paved, flat, clean and easy to use.  Rubbish is sorted into at least 5 categories and I wish I had 5 bins in the caravan so that I could be greener than I am... maybe I should get a bigger 'van so that I can accommodate 5 bins? The pitches are flat but not quite horizontal - so the 'vans sit slightly "nose down".  A good set-up for tucking the waste hog out of sight (unless you have a kitchen in the front of your rig). TV reception on a crummy TV and a 12 year-old circular aerial is first rate.  Good job because I wanted to watch Wimbledon during my stay. Vodaphone signal is strong enough enough to surf, but the 3 signal is almost non existent. You will not need my list of places to visit in the Lake district and Westmorland  -  but don't miss the Rheged centre; its only 5-6 minutes drive. Would I stay here again?  Yes.  And it will make a great M6 stop-over en route to Scotland.

handy for Ullswater lake district

Not a pretty site, as the five hard standing pitches are on the grass along the drive in to the farm, grass could of done with a cut. Those are the bad points, £10 a night for a site with  electric hook up and toilet is a brilliant price. It's just 2.3 miles from Morrison's and Penrith castle ruins, Aldi and railway station not far away. When we were there 4_8 June, Appleby horse fair was on, we caught the bus at the bus station and left the car in their car park, it was easy and saved us £10 on Appleby car park.  This site is also close to Ullswater in the lakes and pretty villages, I would recommend for short stays
