General

  • Small and peaceful farm at the foot of the Howgill Fells
  • Remote location but only ten minutes' drive from the M6
  • In walking country and four miles from Sedbergh

How about this for handsome scenery: Howgills Hideaway on a small sheep and cattle farm near Kendal is the foot of the Howgill Fells, with views across the Lune Valley. And how should you spend your Howgills holiday time? Perhaps sitting back and relaxing – or having a brisk walk on the fab Fells on your doorstep or the Yorkshire Dales National Park all around?

Howgills is a small, secluded and peaceful site, four miles from the market town (and books) of Sedburgh and set just where Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales National Park meet. Although it's a remote location site, it's only ten minutes' drive from the M6 and 11 miles from Kendal; Penrith is easily accessible a bit further north.

Howgills Hideaway has smart and modern accommodation with well-thought out little touches and bed linen provided. Showers and toilets are on site for guests' use, and recycling is available.

Both campfires and barbecues are allowed, but using only firewood purchased on site, please.

A real gem of a site 17/09/2017

  • Liked: 

    Nice welcome pack of tea cake and dog treats on arrival which was great after a long drive over. I 've stayed in a few pods over the year's and this is one of the best. Very cosy and homely. Very private and good views and excellent sunset while sat on decking. Showers etc are excellent. Honesty shop on site which is a good idea. Rural location but only ten mins drive to main roads. A must visit site and loads of walking in the area.

Great experience of camping in the Howgills. 04/08/2017

    We stayed in the camping pod for one night and it was really great. The pod has everything you could need or want for a stay. The beds are comfortable, the small kitchen is ingenious and the outdoor patio is delightful. Children liked the trampoline which had the safety net fitted.
    We had ordered the breakfast basket for our supper and there was enough for breakfast too. There was plenty of wood for the fire pit and the marshmallows made for exciting end to the day.
    The toilet block with family sized shower rooms are clean and modern.
    Thank you just the right start to camping in a pod!
