We visited this wonderful farm in April 2018 we arrived in an absolute torrent of rain to be greeted by the most friendly couple we have ever met on a caravan site. We pitched our van on the small but very well drained area allocated for touring vans. The toilet & shower were located at the side of the farm house & crossing the yard (despite the weather) was no more muddy than the average country road. The shower was hot & cost £1 it ran for so long we realised getting the timing right we could both use it. The next day brought sunshine & we then realised the wonderful location of the site with views across to Thirlmere. The location is excellent for visiting local villages in the Lake District. We stayed for 4 days & would have made it longer but the site was fully booked. This is a working farm & my goodness do the Hodgson Family work hard. It was lambing season so they never stopped but always had the courtesy to pass the time of day, have a joke & a smile with us. Mrs Hodgson let us borrow a sky box for better TV reception. We cannot wait to return to the site & lovely family! As for other review comments - smell of a farm yard -no not really but what do you expect on a working farm - VERY unfair comment. Being bitten by the dog - well Alf loved us & enjoyed having his ears tickled the other dogs were very well behaved, neither was there any dog excrement! Dirty - no it is a working farm & as such was unbelievably clean! Admittedly there was an early morning call from a cockerel - personally that part of having a holiday in the country side - heaven!
