Gill Head Farm is a family-run business on a working hill farm in the northern Lake District. We offer a warm welcome in a great location for families and walkers, lovely views of the surrounding area, and well-maintained and good, clean facilities.
On site, guests will find a children's play area, wifi hotspots, a laundry room and a small shop. We also provide freshly prepared breakfast rolls, hot drinks, porridge and croissants to buy from the farmhouse at a small charge.
A communal cabin is available to our guests offering indoor dining and comfortable seating areas, kettles, microwaves, fridge and freezer, TV, local information and maps.

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 make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
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.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
