General

  • Small, quiet and friendly farm site with spectacular views
  • Lots of room and spacious pitches
  • Several walks direct from the farm including onto the Howgill Fells

Low Greenside Farm is a small, quiet and friendly site, set on a sheep farm in a level field with spectacular countryside views in all directions. The team wants to offer 'camping as it used to be', so pitches are set around the edge of a large field with lots of room between: all very spacious and plenty of space for even the biggest of tents.

Campfires are allowed in the hearths provided and you can buy logs at the farm: pck your sausages and prepare to relax in peace and quiet...

Two friendly village pubs serving food and real ales are a pretty ten to 15-minute walk along the lane or across the fields.

There are varied and beaut hill or valley walks from the site through scenic countryside; up-to-date info is provided on recommended places to walk, eat and visit, countryside events and days out. The team can also give you a copy of the sit'es handy little booklet: 'Nine great walks from '. There's direct access onto the Howgill Fells for long walks with only sheep and ponies to keep you company.

The Lakes, the Dales, and the lovely Eden Valley are all close by for days out.

Site amenities include free hot showers, sockets for hairdryers, phone charging etc, hot water for washing up, a fridge and ice pack freezing, bike washing facilities, and an ndercover storage/indoor area available by arrangement.

    Perfect campsite! Nice and quiet and beautiful setting with 2 great pubs serving great food only 10 mins walk away. Loved the campfire and had everything we needed, hot shower, kitchen area with fridge / freezer. Lots of info on the local area/maps available. Also great having a little dressing room with socket for hair dryer/straighteners. Will definitely be back! 10/10

    An absolutely perfect place to stay. The hosts are amazing and so helpful, the site and facilities are spotlessly clean and well equipped. We had our choice of pitches but I think all the pitches have unspoilt scenery. An ideal place for walkers, cyclists and photographers. There is two local pubs 10 minute and a 15 minute walk from the camp, but I would recommend the black Swan as their food is fantastic, a little pricey but worth it.
    We only stayed for 2 nights and unfortunately got the rain but that didn't stop us for enjoying everything in the area. Will definitely stay again and hopefully have better weather.

  • Liked: 

    Well spaced pitches in beautiful surroundings. 10 minute walk to riverside pub with excellent food. Good base for walking or cycling. Real fires permitted which I think creates the unique camping ambience. Cars not permitted on the grass which preserved the field and safer for families.

    Disliked: 

    Not an abundance of toilets or showers might be an issue when busy, however get the impression numbers would be kept to a sensible level. Wasn't an issue when we were there!

Directions


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.

Local attractions

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.
