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.
