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!

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.
