Our CL site is set on a small working farm in the idilic Eden Valley, between the Lake District National Park and the Outstanding Pennines. Adults and children are all welcome. There are hard standing and grass pitches with electrical hookups and space for an awning. There is also a communal shower/toilet block.
The site is ideally situated behind a small wooded area up the farm lane, within easy reach from junction 41 of the M6. It is perfectly located for exploring the surrounding area with Lake Ullswater only 10 minutes away, Carlisle 15 minutes and Keswick and Kendal 30 minutes. Given the location it is the ideal stopover for breaking up journeys into Scotland.
There is a small shop/petrol station within walking distance. The nearest pub is under a mile away and the local town of Penrith is only 5 minutes away which has all the local amenities such as cinema, leisure centre, supermarkets, train station and an array of food establishments.

Fantastic Little Site

We used this site as a stopover from Essex on our way to and from Scotland. Very easy access from the motorway. The is a slight hum of traffic but nothing to put you off. Very well kept and spacious pitches - with water and EHU. Shower and toilet too if you needed them and these were very clean. Lovely surroundings over looking fields. We liked it so much we have booked for a week next year. Keep up the good work.


Highly Recommended

Everything about this site is straightforward and friendly. Booking was easy. Easily to access site from M6 or A66. Very clean toilet and shower facilities. Everything about the site is very organised. Friendly family feel. Lovely to watch the sheep with their lambs and working in the fields to make hay. Penrith is a bustling market town. We also walked along the river Eden and visited the magical Lacey caves. Long Meg and her daughters is also highly recommended. Beautiful part of the country.


Convenient and very clean

We stayed here on our way up to Oban. Conveniently situated near to the motorway junction - but not noisy. Immaculate toilet block and well maintained site. Very welcoming. Can definitely recommend.


Great CL!!!

We had a super time here at the woodhead farm for a one night stay, breaking up our journey from Scotland to Lichfield! The kids loved the play frame and all the farm animals. The owner was lovely and very friendly. There was a bit of motorway noice but it was a gentle humming which did not bother us at all. In fact the proximity to the motorway was a benefit to us. The toilets and showers were super clean and very spacious. Would definitely stay here again!


Very happy to recommend!

Beautiful well kept site! We spent 2 nights here in April with our grandchildren and were offered a place next to the small play area. This was our 2nd visit to this site, which has spacious pitches and is clean and well cared for by very friendly and helpful owners . There is lots to do in the area and with 3 other caravans on the site, who had all visited before, w


Superb new site

Booked into this brand new CL for a couple of nights due to very handy location just off jnc. 41 of the M6 and literally only a few minutes drive into Penrith. The CL, facilities and welcome from the friendly owners meant we ended up staying a whole week and did not want to leave. Perfect touring base for northern lakes and Eden valley. Level site with all hardstanding pitches but with the ability to peg awning on the grass if you wish (as I did). The best on site CL facilities we have ever seen including hookup and water tap to all pitches, superb toilet block with two heated 'state of the art' family sized shower rooms complete with granite sinks etc. Open aspect around the CL overlooking the owners farmland along with entertaining young cows on all sides. Very handy for the M6 but do not worry about road noise as the motorway is in a deep cutting lined with trees several hundred metres away and background noise is not intrusive in a caravan. You will be glad you stayed here and with full facilities you can stay as long as you like and all for £15 per night including hookup.


I can only re-iterate everybody's comments.

If this doesn't make CL campsite of the year, then something is going wrong. On arrival a note on door said find a pitch. Very shortly afterwards Julie the site owner came over. We got pitched up and around tea time Julie popped her head around to see if things were ok. We invited her in she sat and had a chat with us for half an hour or so. Julie's husband arrived home, cut some grass and popped in to introduce himself and again he stayed and had a chat. The facilities on this CL site are outstanding, there appears to be new hantowel each time I go in. The facility's are absolutely immaculate. Nothing is too much trouble for this young couple. The pitches are of a generous size and your awning can be put on the immaculately manicured grass. This site is clearly a joint adventure and this young families work ethic is a shinning example to there 2 young children. There is a small play area in site of all pitches suitable for youngster up to about 8. I doubt very much if you will ever find a better CL site.



If only all CL's were like this.

We stayed at this new CL recently for 5 nights and can only endorse the comments in the earlier reviews. There is some noise from the motorway but this depends on wind direction and we would not consider it overly intrusive - far outweighed by the convenience and accessibility of the site. The shower/wc facilities are first class and David and Julie deserve every success with their venture - if only all CL's were like this.


First Class Site for First Time Out

We chose this CL for it's location, close to motorway, and it's previous reviews. This was our first time out and I'd already informed Julie and David that I may need some help, which they freely offered. Julie met us and gave us plenty of help and encouragement. We pitched up very easily in the spacious graveled pitches. EHU and water at each pitch. Nicely laid out. To take advantage of the views I would recommend pitching with your window facing the fields that surround the site. Great views. Photos do not do the site justice. There is one ladies and one gents toilet/shower/sink room, that would put many a hotel to shame! Very stylish and clean. David met us later after work and gave us some tips for eating out etc. Try Penrith for a visit, plenty of small shops, etc. Lovely couple and very helpful. Did I mention the great views? Don't let the proximity to the motorway put you off, the road noise is very slight My Wife's ticking alarm clock caused me more disturbance!


fantastic new site!!!!

My Wife and I stayed there for 2 nights in May. We concur fully with all the comments and observations of the previous review. There is no more we can add except for the friendliness and welcoming of the owners David and Julie. We have stayed on many CL's, this is one of the best! We shall certainly be visiting again but for a longer stay. Good luck and best wishes in this new venture! Mike and Gill.
