Wallace Lane Farm: Farmhouse

General

  • Quiet hillside farm site in west Cumbria with views to the sea
  • Coast, lakes, hill walks and mountain biking within 40 minutes' drive
  • Around five minutes' drive to Caldbeck for pub, cafés and shop

Blecogo… Red Dial… Theckthwaite Beck… There are some fine place names in this part of Cumbria and some fine spots to stop in, too. Wallace Lane Farm can't compete in the intriguing name stakes but it's certainly a winner on the fine spot front.

The views from this farm are spectacular: the Irish Sea, the Solway Firth, the first of the Galloway hills. Whatever you're looking at, and whichever parts of this fab area you're visiting, you'll likely appreciate the laundry and drying room as well as the hot showers in the heated washrooms.

Start the day by heading up to the farm for a fab breakfast of local produce (order in advance) and at the end of the day sit round a campfire or grill your bangers on a barbecue – both are welcome and there are two washing-up areas for pots and pans.

It's just over five minutes' drive from the farm to Caldbeck, which has a pub with food and two cafés as well as a shop for supplies. Perhaps you could pick up a picnic and wander through the village along the banks of the Caldew river?

If you're into fishing, day permits are available on many of the rivers and streams of the surrounding area; the Wampool, Waver and Ellen are favourites for those seeking trout and salmon.

Please note

Group bookings of 8 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

    Everything - even the rain didn’t put us off. Great location for visiting the lakes at a fraction of Lake District prices. Huge site that don’t cram people on. If you are in a caravan, cross over the bridge to the camping field and watch the sunsets…amazing. Rent a lodge, take a caravan, take a tent, rent a cottage - this place has it all….absolutely superb.

    So pleased to have found this plot at very last minute, tried initially to be in Lake District but this was only one that came up with everywhere being fully booked. Only 15 minute drive into the lakes. So not a problem. Very friendly owners who made us feel welcome. Mainly tourers on the site and a few tents others being a safari tent and big lodges, nice and quiet. Mostly impressed by the showers and toilets very clean and done out so nice, best ever seen on a campsite could’ve slept in those.

    The sites facilities are very very clean. The toilets always had toilet roll, the shower had adjustable water temperature and the pressure was perfect.

    The little shop had all the essentials and at a good price. They also rented out firepits (which were a good size) for only £20 for your entire stay, the price included the firepit, box of kindling, bag of firewood and newspapers. They also sold extra bags of firewood and kindling for a very cheap price.

    The owners were lovely and helpful and made our stay just that bit better.

    Disliked: 

    The campsite itself is not within walking distance of anything, the closest town is a 2 hour walk away down dangerous country roads.

    Very large pitches. We had so much space and some campsites really don’t give you this. It was ever so hot and we had space for tables and chairs, paddling pool and still room for games. Really impressed.

    Disliked: 

    It is a little bit remote - makes it really peaceful and relaxing but just worth knowing everything is a drive from the site rather than a walk.

Local attractions

Sea fishing without a boat can be tried from the banks of the Solway Firth at Port Carlisle (half an hour by car); alternatively try your hand on the waters of Bassenthwaite lake, 25 minutes away.

Bassenthwaite is a bumper spot for lake walks and if you're in need of fortification, there's a distillery at the northern end doing tours and tastings. If you're more of a high mountains type, paths up Skiddaw and Grisedale Pike start half an hour from the site. A real peak-bagger could rack up two national parks in a day round here; routes up Cross Fell, jewel of the North Pennines, start an hour away.

Mountain bikers make for Whinlatter Forest Park (40 minutes) to hire wheels and try the UK's longest purpose-built tracks; the park's also popular with those seeking treetop thrills on the high ropes. It's a good place to test your mettle before scrambling the via ferrata cableway at Honister Slate Mine, an hour away.

For days down at lake level, you can be sailing, rowing or taking a boat cruise to the little islands on Derwentwater within half an hour; Ambleside, at the top of Lake Windermere with its steamers and watersports, is an hour's journey by car. To see some cracking coastline, it's half an hour to Bowness-on-Solway and Mayport, both good for nature-filled walks and Roman history.
