Free range kids? Flapping around a car free environment in Cumbria’s heavenly Eden Valley close to the Lake District National Park? We’d be in a pretty pickle here at Pitchup.com to pick the Main attraction at peaceful, popular and family-run Mains Farm Caravan and Camping Site, but we’re imagining parents gleefully clinking glasses in the child-friendly landscape while the kids run around.
Anglers and bikers flock here too as the farm has its own single bank salmon and trout fishing hotspot just 200 metres up the road (arrange on arrival) and it’s used by cyclists as an overnight stopoff to rest their weary bones on a C2C pedal as it’s 63 miles from Whitehaven and at the base of the Pennines. This is the Cumbrian countryside, so scenic hikes come as additional standard: take one of the private Mains Farm trails across their own land to feel proper exclusive. The Lake District, Hadrian’s Wall and the Scottish Highlands are all 20 – 30 minutes’ drive away.
But back to the kids. Wind them up and let them roam: although Mains Farm is easy to get to from the M6 and a short drive from the Lake District, the Scottish Highlands and Hadrian’s Wall, it’s set well away from main roads and is small enough to be able to keep an eye on any offspring playing on site: pitches are set around open fields or in a walled orchard and all cars have to be parked in the car park away from the pitching areas. All this and a very popular playground with swings, slide, climbing frame and monkey bars on site too: expect not to see small people from dawn to dusk.
Campfires are allowed – hire a fire basket from amiable owners Robert and Julia – and the undercover eating area on site comes with log burner and barbecue. Guests also have use of two kitchen areas with fridges, kettle, oven, hob and microwave, a secure store for bicycles, washing and drying facilities and clean shower and loo blocks converted from the farm’s former stables.
If you’re cooking on site, supplies can be sorted from the Co-op in Lazonby village about a mile away; if you’re feeling lazy/holidaylike, two pubs serving food are within the same distance (ask Robert or Julia to book you a table in advance: like Mains Farm, the village pubs are pretty popular).

It's now possible to make group bookings on Pitchup.com for up to 30 adults and 30 children.
As long as the 'one unit per pitch' rule is not highlighted on the pitch type information (please check this before completing your booking), you will be able to pitch your tents together on one booking.
If you are not satisfied with the results generated, try breaking your booking down for more options. For example, if you're a group of 10, enter five people for your initial search and book two pitches. Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches or accommodation units: the campsite or park will try to grant your request. Click the 'Make another booking like this' button on the confirmation page to take you back to your chosen campsite/park listing page so you can make your next booking straight away. Please note the same dates and party size will be used, so you'll need to change this if the number of people or child ages are different.
Before booking, please check the listing page for any group restrictions. These normally appear in a section titled 'Please note'. Please also check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit - especially for a large party - is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
