General

Located in a quiet corner of the Lake District National Park, Pound Farm is a carefully designed and beautifully situated holiday hamlet.

The rural setting makes the most of the stunning views the area has to offer. It is understandable why Alfred Wainwright was so inspired by Bowness on Windermere. You will find Pound Farm Park nestling quietly in the Lake District National Park just outside Windermere and Kendal. This is a perfect location to access the lakes but also offers a rural setting just outside the bustling towns.

The park is superbly designed with local slate walls on either side of our main access road, bordering our elegant lodges as you look down the park.

It is ideally situated for you to enjoy all the Lake District has to offer whether it is sightseeing, walking cycling, climbing, sailing or just relaxing away from it all.

The park is peaceful with abundant local wildlife and if you are lucky you may meet our near-tame robins and pheasants.

We are easy to access, just 15 minutes from the J36 off the M6.

Although a rural setting, we are just 400m from the Sun Inn at Crook which offers excellent meals and ales.

    I've just spent two night camping here with my dog Henry and meeting an old friend to catch up. Pound farm was a little revelation and don't be put off by the drive through the cabins to get to the pitch site. I was in a tent, my friend in a caravan and we got pitches next to each other. I say its small, enough pitches for about a dozen tents and a dozen caravans, most of which are serviced with electricity.

    I didn't need this as me and the dog was happy just camping and sleeping at the site, though for a longer stay or a stay with kids I would heartily recommend this site to visit the lakes. Great site, great staff and small but fantastic facilities. I will be back.
