General

Burns Farm is traditional, family run campsite and caravan park, located on a quiet working farm, situated 3 miles outside of Keswick in the beautiful valley St Johns-in-the-Vale. Burns Farm is very conscious of it’s carbon footprint, and being environmentally friendly also adds to the feel good factor that we implement. This year we made an environmentally friendly choice to installing a biomass boiler using renewable energy sourced from the farm. meeting all the hot water and heating requirements for the caravan and campsite shower blocks, holiday cottages and farm building
Our caravan park caters for touring caravans, trailer tents, campervans and small motor homes with up to 10 amps electric. Our campsite caters for small tents, large tents, family tents and school groups with tents. We also have pitches with electric hook-ups for tents too. The site is situated on a hill top this not only gives 360 degree views, it also means we don’t flood and the sun isn’t restricted by the mountains giving all day sun all year round!

We’re a great base for exploring the surrounding mountains and peaks of Blencathra, Skiddaw, Latrigg, Scafell Pike, Scafell, and Helvellyn, to name a few.

With stunning scenery from the edges of our fields wherever you cast your amazed gaze, you just need walk off the site in any direction and it won’t be long before a hill comes under foot. From some of the highest ground in England, to the loveliest walk on a disused railway line by the River Greta, this is one of the greatest places to take your boots. It will be tempting just to get your chair out and sit on the site admiring the idyllic surroundings, but be strong, lace up those boots and get amongst it!
