Moss Howe Farm: Glasses of wine on the picnic table

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.

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.

Great site, friendly, helpful staff.16/08/2022

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Relaxed, quiet site, great facilities, made use of the logs from the shop and fire pit, lodge was well equipped and comfortable and having the fridge was brilliant with the weather being so hot.

    Disliked: 

    Not specifically a dislike as having no Wi-Fi is not too bad a thing sometimes but it was limited to a certain point on the site. This meant a short walk towards the vicinity of the shop.

Good out of season but busy site was not monitored for noise15/08/2022

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch (small)

  • Liked: 

    The area and proximity to Windermere lake is fabulous.

    Hot showers which were lovely, free and not the push variety which is excellent. Nice shop on site with useful bits and bobs at very reasonable prices. The site itself is beautiful, pitches are good and flat (bring rock pegs though) and there is plenty to do in the local area. I will certainly come back but perhaps not in the height of the busy season!

    Disliked: 

    Noise on the site was not monitored and this was one of the reasons we chose the site. We stayed in April and had a fantastic experience. But this time big groups played loud music one night, they left then the next night another group made noise late, well past advertised quiet times. I put this down to individual campers but when it is advertised as a quiet site at times it would be good to have this monitored. My daughter struggled to sleep and we had a very busy itinerary so our holiday was impacted a little but bring ear plugs or expect to be up a little later and all should be well.

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)
