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 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; 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.

    We loved everything about this place. Including the chickens and The cat! The hut we stayed in was cosy and warm and felt very private but at the same time gave you the "camping" atmosphere. The toilets and showers were incredibly clean. The small shop onsite was very well stocked and provided wood to have a fire which was amazing! Will definitely be back.

    Thankyou.

    Disliked: 

    Barking sheep dog for 10 hours solid through to the early hours (about 3am) in the farm building opposite the camp field.
    No need to say it was impossible to sleep unless you don’t mind that type of noise at night.
    Hopefully if we stay again the dog won’t be there or will be sorted out by the farm so it’s not keeping people awake half the night.

Lovely staff, really welcoming feel to the campsite. Clean and tidy. 16/07/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom David H. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch (large)

  • Liked: 

    Really friendly campsite. Owner is really helpful. Easy to book through pitchup website.
    Onsite shop which is open long hours during the day until late evening.
    Lots of free-to-borrow firepits for campers.
    Great location, short car drive to any of the southern lakes.
    Good toilet and shower facilities.
    Perfect weekend away for our little family.

    Disliked: 

    Being picky to be honest, it ticks all the boxes you would want generally, but perhaps a small children's play area would be nice, as we have a toddler so that would have helped entertain her onsite. But like I say i'm being really picky, a lot of people probably wouldn't be bothered about this.

    The owners were very polite and welcoming, the pitch we used behind the house was lovely. It was like we had our own private pitch over looking the other happy campers, with rolling hills in the back ground.
    Shop was well stocked and very well priced.
    BBQ’s and Fire pits to use for free, just had to make sure they were cleaned and returned.

    Disliked: 

    Couldn’t get pegs in the ground.

Lovely small site with ample facilities and friendly staff 09/07/2018

  • Liked: 

    Had a great pitch round the back, freedom to pitch where we wanted and parking next to pitch, good facilities, handy little shop. Use of fire pit just had to buy wood, lovely rural location, ideal stop before driving further into the lakes. Site was full but didn't need to queue for use of facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Was quite stoney underground on our pitch which made pegging in difficult but other pitches may be different as we were higher up, not a problem as we had perfect weather so no chance of the tent blowing away!

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)
  • Sizergh Castle and Garden (4.7 miles)
