Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.

Low Greenside is easy to find.
From the M6 (6.5 miles): leave the motorway at junction 38. At the roundabout, take the A685 towards Brough and Scotch Corner. 6.5 miles from the roundabout, at the big blue road sign, turn right towards Ravenstonedale. After 150 yards, turn right at the sign for Greenside. Low Greenside is the first farm on the left.
From the A685 at Kirkby Stephen (5 miles): follow the A685 south from Kirkby Stephen. After about 4.5 miles, at the bottom of a long steep hill, turn left towards Ravenstonedale. Ignore the turning left into the village, and continue (passing the Kings Head Hotel, set back on your left) until you see a sign for Greenside. Turn left here. Low Greenside is the first farm on the left.
From Sedbergh A683 (12 miles): follow the A683 from Sedbergh towards Kirkby Stephen. After crossing an unfenced common, turn left at the Fat Lamb Inn. Follow the road through Ravenstonedale, turning left at the Black Swan Hotel. Bear right at the school. Turn left at the T-junction. Continue, passing the Kings Head Hotel (set back, on your left) until you see a sign for Greenside. Turn left here. Low Greenside is the first farm on the left.
By train from Kirkby Stephen station (4 miles): on the famous Settle-Carlisle line, you can take a bus or book a taxi. For up-to-date timetables and taxi numbers, contact Kirkby Stephen Tourist Information Centre.
Ravenstonedale village about 10 minutes' walk from the farm has two country pubs with riverside gardens, both serving food and real ales. There's also a village grocery shop, playground, public tennis court, nine and 18-hole golf course and a small art gallery.
There are plenty of interesting local walks and bike rides in the region – several start at the farm gate – including country walks with refreshments to be had at a pub or café en route. The Howgill Fells are a few minutes' stroll up the lane for walking and mountain biking.
Nearby you can go pony trekking or trout fishing - catch one and barbecue it later (the trout not the pony...).
The market towns of Kirkby Stephen, Appleby and Sedbergh are all within a few miles, each with its own attractions. The farm owners will keep you up to date with events in the area, such as local shows and festivals, farmers' markets and other rural happenings.
There's excellent access for days out in both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales but none of the busy vibe you can find elsewhere in tourist areas. The Eden Valley is equally scenic and doesn't get busy.
Information on all the above is available at the site. There's also a visitor information centre in Kirkby Stephen.
