Seatoller Farm: Our setup at Seatoller Farm

General

  • Peaceful family-run farm site next to the River Derwent
  • Excellent base for hikes, including Scafell and Great Gable
  • Woodfired pizzas on Friday and Saturday nights, a short walk away

Setting forth for the Lake District to seek out some scenic views? Settle in to Seatoller Farm and you can start on the scenery-seeing without so much as moving from the site. At this family-run working hill farm in Cumbria, the views are stunning whichever way you turn, taking in vistas of the Borrowdale valley and the River Derwent.

At this back to basics site, there’s no wifi or phone signal (except Vodafone in Seatoller itself), so switch off and embrace the wild feel. When you roll up, there’s no reception, so pick out a pitch. Owner Daniel comes around in the morning and evening to check on guests, but they’re not always in the house.

Every Friday and Saturday night (between 6pm and 8pm), woodfired pizzas are sold up at the farm's pizza trailer, five minutes’ walk away. Take it back to your tent or tuck in inside the seating barn. Tasty toppings include the site’s own pork and Herdwick lamb. Also up for grabs at the farm (or from Dan on his rounds) are rare breed pork sausages, Herdwick lamb and mint burgers or logs and kindling.

A nifty central location in the Lake District National Park means this site is well placed for lots of walks, including scrambling up Scafell, ticking off the Wainwright fells or a leisurely riverside ramble. Protected woodland runs along one side of the farm, with wildlife like bats, buzzards, woodpeckers and owls among the site’s frequent visitors.

The low-key facilities preserve the relaxed rural vibe – separate gents’ and ladies toilets are close to the pitches, as are washing-up facilities and drinking water taps; showers are a short walk away at the main farm building.

Campfires and barbecues are allowed here, but only if they're kept off the grass (you'll immediately be asked to put out any fires that burn the grass). There are a couple of pubs about a mile away for food and drinks, and a hotel five minutes' walk away for drinks on the terrace.

The campsite has excellent access to the local bus service that runs regularly from the farm during the season.

  • Liked: 

    The peaceful relax atmosphere of the site. Daniel (the owner) was great at giving advise for local knowledge for walks and the scenery was stunning. Having the river run through the site was beautiful but if you are a light sleeper I would advise on ear plugs. The location for anyone wishing to climb Scafell Pike is fantastic. We walked out from campsite and it was 1.5 mile to the start of the mountain.
    A major selling point for us but maybe not for others is there is no phone signal or Wi-Fi for at least three miles, so totally cut of from day to day life.

    Disliked: 

    The location of the showers from the campsite was not ideal but not a deal breaker also would ideally like to be able to purchase wood for fires earlier in the evening and easier but do understand this is a working farm so maybe we should have planned ahead for this

    Scenic setting - very peaceful - ideally situated for Lake Buttermere, Haystacks and Fleetwith Pike - met by a very friendly pheasant who enjoyed a snack with us

    Disliked: 

    Cold water only to wash dishes - but not a major problem and one which would not dissuade us from staying again

    This is really a great campsite! It’s right next to a river which is lovely and I imagine it’d be really nice during summer! We had the pizzas after a long walk on the Saturday evening.

    We arrived quite late in the evening on the Friday and there was still plenty of pitches to choose from. The ground was nice and soft to put pegs in. Toilets not too far away but if you choose to pitch at the very far end then there is a bit of a walk.

    Will Definitley be coming again as it’s not too far from Keswick and the owners are lovely!

    Disliked: 

    No hot water to clean pots, with fat on the plates and frying pan it just smeared around.
    Lights in the toilet are not great so make sure you take a torch!
    Showers are a 10-15 minute walk to the farm - but we didn’t use them so it wasn’t an issue (there is a national trust car park at the back of the farm if you really can’t do the walk but it is pay and display).

Great spot for climbing Scafell Pike22/09/2022

Reviewer's country: United KingdomKatie T.Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent or campervan pitch

  • Liked: 

    The surrounding scenery was fabulous and the spot is ideal for climbing Scafell pike. Only a mile down the road for the starting line. There are also two pubs within walking distance, both with great food and atmosphere which we used each evening.

    Disliked: 

    Shower block is a little walk away near the main farm building which isn't ideal but fine for a 3 night stay.

Local attractions

Dust off those hiking boots, for Seatoller’s surrounds are stacked with walking trails to suit all comers, from those seeking a gentle stroll through woodland and across heather-strewn fells to those in search of more vertical challenges. The beginning of a couple of the national park’s top climbs are easy to get to too – Great Gable (an hour and a half) and mighty Scafell (a couple of hours).

Roam a little further afield for hikes on Catbells (15 minutes’ drive), around the Castlerigg stone circle (25 minutes) or on the slopes of Helvellyn (half an hour away, and a fine choice for mountain bikers too). If you’d like to have a crack at climbing in a controlled environment, try the via ferrata route at Honister Slate Mine, five minutes away, and worth a stop for an underground mine tour even if you’re not up to clinging on to crags.

All sound a little tiring? Less demanding days out include the Lake District Wildlife Park (half an hour) and the sculpture trail at Rydal Hall Gardens (40 minutes). It’s worth knocking around Keswick for a bit too, visiting the eccentric Puzzling Place exhibition and Derwent Pencil Museum or taking tipples at the town’s brewery. Alpaca trekking at Lingholm Estate and Whinlatter Forest are some other splendid days out.

Must see

  • Whinlatter Forest & Visitor Centre (6.7 miles)
  • Castlerigg Stone Circle (6.9 miles)
  • Dove Cottage and the Wordsworth Museum (7.2 miles)

National Trust
