General

  • In the Cumbrian hills a couple of miles from Witherslack
  • A 15-minute drive from Grange-over-Sands and 25 from Windermere
  • Campfires allowed: firepits for hire and wood for sale on site

How might you fancy a peaceful and well-equipped Lake District place to stay, among the peaceful hills of Cumbria, and with easy access to famed Lake District destinations including Lake Windermere, Ambleside, Cartmel and Kendal? Bed down at quiet and secluded Moss Howe Farm for all the above, a couple of miles from local village Witherslack and 15 minutes' drive from Grange-over-Sands.

As it's a farm site, a farm shop is at your disposal too, selling foodie essentials as well as wood for firepits under the Cumbrian stars. This is an excellent setting for campfire evenings: guests can arrange firepit hire by adding a request to the Moss Howe team when booking, or use their own barbecues as long as they're raised off the ground and placed on top of the firepit using the supplied grill. A shop and pub are nearby in Witherslack for supplies and other eats.

Moss Howe is well equipped, with modern shower, washroom and toilet facilities, plus a tumble dryer in the ladies' shower block, and dishwashing basins just outside. Charging facilities are available for an extra fee; freshwater taps are around the accommodation areas, and wifi is at reception.

Please note

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

    Warm showers and heated toilet building. Tumble dryer was a plus as it rained the whole time! Beautiful views from the campsite and accessible to so many areas of interest.

    I really liked the location and quiet environment by the farm where we just hear sheep. Facilities like toilet and showers were clean and sufficient for the size of the campsite. The only downside was there was almost no mobile signals and not easy to drive around as we used Google Map for navigation, though it was my mistake not to have been prepared for that. Pretty enjoyed the great access to the lakes and comfortable stay with sheep.

    Located well off the beaten track Moss Howe is a little gem of relaxation that’s still within reach of some great locations for days out. The site is well spaced out with loads of room around each pitch providing a really relaxed experience. There’s a great pub serving some good beers and lovely food about 40mins walk away (or a ten minute drive).

    Fire pits are free to use on a first come first served basis which meant evenings were warm and toasty with most pitches making use of them.

    Disliked: 

    If we had to say anything it would be that there was a slight issue with hot water in our first night but it was soon rectified.

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

A particularly viewsome way to explore these viewsome surroundings is atop a horse, so make your way first to the Witherslack Hall Equestrian Centre, 10 minutes' drive away, for rides through the woods or on the local fell. A big sheltered arena is also at the centre if you'd like to practise your cantering first.

If horses aren't for you, take to the car instead for the spectacularly scenic 25-minute drive to Windermere and Consiton Water via the A590, among the views of the east side of the lake to Bowness, Troutbeck and Ambleside. You'll need at least a day at Britain's biggest natural water lake, for steam ferry rides from Bowness Bay to Waterhead at Ambleside, or boating trips around the water and Windermere's 18 islands. Also have a potter around Lakeside Pier at the southern end of the lake (the ferry from Bowness finishes here), for the Aquarium of the Lakes showcasing Windermere's wildlife.

Hikes, mountain biking and lake and mountain views are at Grizedale Forest, 35 minutes away.

Must see

  • Windermere Lake Cruises, Lakeside (3.5 miles)
  • Levens Hall & Gardens (4.1 miles)
  • Lakeland Motor Museum (4.4 miles)

National Trust

  • Fell Foot Park (3.1 miles)
