- Wild camping on a Cumbria goat farm in Ravenstonedale
- A 15-minute drive to Kirkby Stephen for shops; 20 minutes to Sedbergh
- Farm shop on site for local meat, cheese and ice creams
What a setting for walkers and cyclists, edging the Westmorland Dales in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. A family-run affair, Piper Hole Goat Farm has a handful of grassy pitches a five-minute drive from Ravenstonedale village in Cumbria.
The farm is holistically run, with signposted walks through wildflower meadows in early summer, looking over goats grazing in the fields and sheep out on the fell. As the animals roam pretty freely, please check in with staff on arrival for parking info and directions to your pitch.
You’ll probably want to get out and about on the moors as quickly as possible, but don’t forget all those pretty market towns like Sedbergh and Richmond, where you can potter around farmers’ markets and indie shops. And with the north’s reputation for good grub, real ales and artisan gins, it’s well worth checking out the pubs in Ravenstonedale too.
Back on site, the pitches may be simple (amenities include toilet, showers and a communal fridge) but they're well set for some tasty treats. The on-site farm shop sells ice cream, cheese and soap made from goats’ milk, along with other handy bits and bobs like local meat for barbecues (bring your own from home). You can also stock up on any other essentials at the supermarkets in Kirkby Stephen.
