Stybeck Farm: View of the farm from the fells

General

  • Lake District working farm two miles from Thirlmere
  • A10-minute drive to Derwentwater, Keswick and Grasmere
  • Adult-only, dog-friendly site; 20 minutes' walk to the local pub

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.

Please note

Guests under the age of 18 are not allowed on site.

    Location for walking, Helvelyn. Cafe just down the road with WiFi. Very friendly and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    £1 coin operated shower, nothing worse than getting to the shower and finding out it’s pay as you go. No WiFi. Not a stay stopper, but should be made clearer in details.

    Had a lovely time here. It’s a proper working farm so we woke up to goats and chickens outside the van and sheep being herded through the farm! Lots of dogs too. Shower is £1 coin operated and lasts much longer than you’ll need. The owners kindly let us use their hosepipe to fill our water tank. Would recommend especially for the price. No wifi at all but we appreciate switch-off time on holiday.

    A welcoming working farm site with many animals wandering about which gave us a lot of enjoyment! The owners are great and made sure we had everything we needed but left us to it thereafter.

    The site is particularly well located if you want to walk, with routes all around up into the mountains and beyond. Additionally, the bus stop nearby with a regular service to Keswick and Windermere mean you can leave the car behind and not have the hassle of parking in those busy locations!

    It's a small site so the single toilet and shower were not a problem at all and the £1 for the shower did not seem unreasonable to us.

    Extremely peaceful location. Good pub a short walk away. We didn’t use it but a small shop to get essentials if required. Great walking location, direct path up hellvellyn! Farm animals were a great addition. The owners hands-off approach made for a much more enjoyable stay. Would 100% stay again!

Directions


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.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

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).

Must see

  • Castlerigg Stone Circle (3.4 miles)
