Set between the Yorkshire Dales and The Lake District this gorgeous rural site offers couples and families alike the perfect place to get away and recharge their batteries. With 3 camping pods, sleeping 2+2, plus 2 static caravans sleeping 4+2 and even a Bell Tent which can sleep up to 4 there is something for everyone! 

The site is located on a family run farm near the famous market town of Kendal and offers stunning views from each property as well as cycle and walking routes, plenty of outdoor space for the children to run around it, an onsite honesty shop with freshly cooked goodies, BBQ and Firepit hire and the farm animals as your neighbours! You can even bring your dogs along too!

There are 3 pods on site each with their own terrace area and outside dining furniture. They house a double bed and small double sofa bed, perfect for the kiddywinks. There is a kitchenette with electric hob, microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster plus a cold water tap. A TV + DVD player plus selection of board games are available to entertain everyone on the occasions when the Cumbrian weather isn't so kind!

The Caravans offer more home comforts and sleep up to 6 people. They have a double bedroom, twin bedroom and sofa bed.

The private garden space is the perfect place to relax around the firepit and enjoy a spot of stargazing of a night time. Again there is a TV + DVD plus selection of board games to enjoy. 

The single Bell Tent is the perfect way to enjoy glamping and this will be available from Summer 2019. It offers comfort where needed with a double bed and 2 single beds plus a wood burning effect heater to keep you warm and toasty. You can even find electric sockets in the tent, camping this is not!
