Want to wake up, lace up your boots and head off on a hearty hike straight from your pitch? Stay at Stybeck Farm near Keswick in the Lake District – pitches here are on a busy working farm where the fields give way to fells, crags and lakes.
About 10 minutes’ drive from Keswick and Grasmere, the farm is less than two miles from Thirlmere, with Helvellyn rising above and Blencathra and Skiddaw about seven miles away. Base yourself here and large parts of the Lake District National Park can become your playground.
Ten minutes in the car brings you to Derwentwater, an excellent launching place for boat trips. In 20 minutes you can drive to Ullswater, and Windemere is half an hour’s drive. If you fancy leaving your car behind, there’s a handy bus stop at the bottom of the lane.
The family run a small farm shop on site selling their own vegetables and eggs. If you need to pick up more in the way of supplies, or go out to eat, head into Keswick and Grasmere. A closer option for filling up on food is the local pub, 20 minutes’ walk away.
If you fancy kicking back and just enjoying your surroundings, there’s nearly always some animal antics to see – from feeding the inquisitive chickens to watching the sheep shearing or saying hi to the goats, donkeys and cows out in the fields.
Guests under the age of 18 are not allowed on site.

Be careful if following your satnav, as the postcode covers everything within a mile. Look out for the Stybeck Farm sign as you come along the road. The 555 bus service also stops at the bottom of the drive.
Travel 10 minutes in the car, and about 5000 years back in time, to see Castlerigg Stone Circle, one of the earliest constructions of its kind in Britain. It’s also 10 minutes’ drive to start your journey to discover another important part of the Lake District’s history – albeit a bit more recent – on the Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Trail, which repurposes the Victorian railway line as an accessible path through tunnels and over bridges.
If the weather isn’t playing nice, there are a couple of popular places to while away a rainy few hours in Keswick (10 minutes' drive): the Derwent Pencil Museum and The Puzzling Place, where nothing is quite as it seems. Keswick's also the place for boat trips and watersports on Derwentwater.
Alternatively, if you fancy a pint or a dram to put a spring in your step, and want to learn all about how they’re made, you could pay a visit to the Keswick Brewing Company (10 minutes) or the Lakes Distillery in Cockermouth (20 minutes).
