Moss Side Farm Campsite: Sun shining over the pitches

General

  • Small, quiet site on a working farm with scenic views
  • Woodland valley with walks, bike rides and riding trails all around
  • Peaceful Lake District site; no music, groups, ball games or under-13s

Moss Side Farm Campsite, near Cumbria's Broughton-in-Furness, should hit the spot for hikers: it's in a woodland valley with many footpaths leading directly from the farm. And for watery types too, as the farm is in the Lake District, 10 minutes' drive from the nearest lake and 40 from Windermere. And for cyclists, and horse riders, and those who like smashing views of lakeland fells leading down to the Irish Sea…

This is a small, friendly and family-run site on a working hill farm with working dogs along with sheep, cows, ponies, ducks and hens. Two ladies' and two gents' showers, a freezer and a washing-up area are among the site amenities, and campfires are permitted.

Moss Farm's nearest village is Broughton-in-Furness, a seven-minute drive or 30 or so minute walk away; here guests can buy bread from the award-winning Broughton bakery and groceries and meat from a family-run butcher and grocer. The village also has three pubs, two of which serve food, plus a restaurant, two cafés, a petrol station, a post office, a bank and a gift shop.

Quiet well-behaved dogs are welcome at Moss Farm as long as they're kept on leads while on site. No music or radios may be used at this peaceful site, and groups, ball games and kids under 13 are not allowed.

    John the proprietor was very understanding of my need to arrive in the middle of the night - my reason for staying was I needed somewhere to sleep after a night time endurance event - I ended up finishing the event a lot quicker so didn’t use the pitch in the end and just drive straight home - I really appreciated John’s kindness in giving the flexibility to arrive in the middle of the night though, had I needed it - thanks John - All the best Chris

    We absolutely loved our stay in one if the railway cabins. The host greeted us as we arrived and was super friendly. The cabin was clean and got nice and toasty with the stove burning in the evening. There was also the bonus of friendly dogs, goats and ducks! Highly recommend.

    Was nice and peaceful can't really fault it owners pretty freindly and the place was chilled , took the dog for the night to get her away from the fireworks and it's the best and happiest she had been in weeks , didn't shower as the blocks were a bit rough and we was only staying the one night the fire in the cabin was awesome we sat our pie on top to warm it to through

    Disliked: 

    was disappointed to read that they didn't allow Staffordshire bull terriers to stay there as a staffy lover I found this very discriminating. I've had a staffy from her being 8 weeks she's a big baby and has never shown any aggression however she's scared on her head and face from a border collie !

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Of the many footpaths straight from the farm, the main one is the Foxfield to Broughton route along a disused railway line right into Broughton. Other paths can take you to the Broughton Mills area, Seathwaite valley and Ulpha valley; ask the Moss Farm team to point you in the right direction.

If you're in the area for watersports, Coniston Lake, the third biggest in the Lake District, is the closest to the farm and is 10 minutes' drive away. Otherwise try pony trekking at Spoon Hall near Coniston, Muirthwaite Green at Silecroft or Cumbrian Heavy Horses in the Whicham Valley, all within 15 minutes' drive.

Historic house fans have many in the area to pick from, like Muncaster Castle, Sizer Castle, Holker Hall and Levens Hall, as well as many National Trust houses such as Dove House in Grasmere, home of daffs man William Wordsworth.

The towns of Windermere and Ambleside are about 20 minutes' drive away, as is South Lakes Animal Park at Dalton-in-Furness, an attractive option for animal fans.

The staff at the Broughton-in-Furness tourist information centre can give you tips on what's best to see and do.

Must see

  • Lakeland Motor Museum (8.2 miles)
  • South Lakes Wild Animal Park (8.7 miles)
  • Windermere Lake Cruises, Lakeside (9.2 miles)
