Seatoller Farm: Grass pitches with gorgeous views

General

  • Peaceful family-run farm site next to the River Derwent
  • Excellent base for hikes: walk to Scafell in two hours
  • Easy access to local bus services in high season

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. The views from this family-fun Cumbria farm are stunning whichever way you turn, taking in vistas of the Borrowdale valley and the River Derwent, which runs past the site.

A nifty central location in the Lake District National Park means this site is well placed for lots of walks, whether you’re scrambling up Scafell, ticking off the Wainwright fells or just taking a more leisurely riverside ramble. Protected woodland runs along one side of the farm, so you’re likely to encounter wildlife even just pottering around on site – bats, buzzards, woodpeckers and owls are among the frequent visitors.

Facilities on site have been kept low key to 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 few bars and 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.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    I could not fault this campsite, picturesque, quiet, people were having bbq's and fires in the evening. Scafell and the Borrowdale Valley is beautiful. the owners were round frequently to clean the shower and toilet blocks along with the washing up areas. hikers hotel short walk down the road where you can hook up to wifi and grab a beer/ hot drink.

    Disliked: 

    People have commented negatively about the walk to the showers, however after a long hike up the corridor route and back which is accessible from the campsite, a small walk to the showers along the stream is well worth it. the showers are hot and powerful and in large cubicles.

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. A couple of the national park’s top climbs are within hiking distance here – Great Gable is an hour and a half away on foot, 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.

Must see

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