Bow Top gypsy caravan

Liked: Beautiful views and great location. Neil was very knowledgeable of the area and told us of some beautiful places to visit. Shower/toilet block were clean. Although it wasnt electric hook up there were two sockets in the ladies shower block where you are able to charge power banks or your phone.

1 bedroom camping pod

Liked: Just got home from an amazing stay at Black Beck Farm! We stayed in Red Deer Lodge and honestly it was fantastic, a proper little Hobbit House. Had a wonderful indoor BBQ on our first night and the owners had left us a bag of marshmallows to toast, which the kids loved. The campsite itself is truly lovely, woth hills, knolls, cubbys and corners all over - it really does look like something off LORL, like a real life Shire. The scenery and views are spectacular and the owners popped by for chats and made sure we were ok. On top of that we had fantastic weather and an all around fab weekend! Will definitely be coming back!

1 bedroom camping pod

Liked: We loved our stay at black beck farm for my 36th birthday. The cabin provided some great family memories, toasting marshmallows in the evenings. The park had space for the kids to run around in the fresh air and the wild bunnies where an added extra bonus. Lots of walks around the park and it was a short drive into Ulverston. Great stay!

Disliked: Spiders! There were a few webs too as expected in a cabin. Husband was on hand to sort that out for us!

From the manager: Happy birthday 🥳 wish we had known it was your birthday, many happy returns!! So pleased you enjoyed the marshmallows around the fire pit in our glamping lodge - but so sorry about the wildlife spiders, it seems to be different times of year when they head indoors, glad your husband sorted them for you, Glad you enjoyed some great family time together making great memories 💕 Thank you for leaving our accommodation so clean and tidy, much appreciated Let’s hope we can welcome you back again one day With our best wishes Ann and Neil

1 bedroom camping pod

Liked: The roe deer Lodge we stayed in was lovely, couldn't fault it in any way

Disliked: Not a dislike but the site could do with a few more toilets and showers, in the ladies there were only 2 of each, in the height of summer with a full site I suspect there would be a fair bit of queuing

Recommend to friends Visit again

From the manager: Many thanks for taking the time to leave us this review We are pleased you thought our glamping lodge was lovely and that you would return and recommend to friends Our washroom facilities do have two showers, two loos and two sinks in both the gents and ladies, In the future, when funds allow, we are planning to upgrade our washroom facilities, which will have more showers and toilets available, Let’s hope we can welcome you back again to try them out. Kindest regards Ann and Neil
