Eden Escapes: Pitches

General

  • Pop-up wild campsite in the scenic Eden Valley
  • A mile to Kirkby Stephen; 15 minutes' drive to Appleby-in-Westmorland
  • Well-behaved dogs and campfires welcome

Hear that sound? It's the quiet murmur of the river Eden as it flows a few yards from your pitch at Eden Escapes, a wild-style farm site deep in the Cumbrian countryside.

This quiet open field is easily accessible from the road, is surrounded by rolling grassland and has sheep and cows for neighbours. It's a short amble away from the Eden river, where you can stop to swim, paddle and relax before heading into the historic market town of Kirkby Stephen a mile to the south. The pretty village of Winton is a similar distance away via local footpaths too and is home to a friendly local pub and kids' playground.

The views here are truly spectacular, with sweeping vistas over Wild Boar fell and, further to the north, the peaks of the Pennines. Eden Escapes is within reach of both, with day trips to the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District national parks also easily doable.

In terms of facilities, this is a simple spot with portaloo toilets and running water (please note it has no showers). The farm is a pretty laidback place to be – well-behaved dogs are welcome to join you here, barbecues are permitted and campfires are allowed in the designated areas.

Please note

    Loved everything about our stay here! The location was superb, the welcome when we arrived was superb, the friendliness of the owners was just so lovely! They couldn't have possibly been any kinder. Great touches like having each pitch area marked out and with a firepit. Very safe for dogs and young children. No cars on the pitch area - but wheelbarrows provided to make it a little easier. Access to swimming in the river from the next field up. Portaloos possibly the cleanest I've ever used! Can't recommend this campsite enough.

    Disliked: 

    My only complaint is that some of the other campers struggled to follow the quiet time past 10pm!

    Parking is cordoned off - as a family with young children, the elimination of cars driving around was a great safety feature.

    Wheelbarrows were provided - this enabled equipment to be transported from car to the pitch in a lure efficient way.

    Toilets - VERY clean

    Fire kit provided - at 6pm a fire set consisting of kindling, wood shavings, matches, fire lighters and wood were provided. All bagged up and ready to go for £7. Good price. Campsite had been imaginative and made usw of car wheels as the fire pits and rested them on bricks.

    Sign at entrance - listing local takeaways and amenities.

    Free range eggs and butter provided with an honesty box. Lovely idea.

    Level pitches

    Farm animals surrounding - great for children to see.

    Definitely come again.

    Comfortable pitch, Fantastic views, enough porta-loos for everyone's comfort and ease which were cleaned regularly. Plus where the campsite is located was a convenient walk into town and a section of the river for bathing in hot weather like what we had.

    Loved the Fire bag kits and fire pits in each tent pitch. The facilities that consisted of water and fresh eggs, matches and bug repellent available was so lovely. The owners were wonderfully helpful and had spare chairs for those of us who forgot - which also extended the warmth of the others staying on the pitch who came from all over the country.

    We had a fantastic time and would definitely come back. No need to recommend to a friend - I already have!!

    Myself and my three boys had a great stay. Owners are very friendly and attentive to the site. Two of my boys even got a ride in the tractor 😁
    The stream is beautiful and great for skimming.
    We cannot wait to return.

    Would be great if if it had shower facilities but my boys would make me stay longer. I was happy to get back to my bed.
