General

  • In the Cumbrian hills a couple of miles from Witherslack
  • A 15-minute drive from Grange-over-Sands and 25 from Windermere
  • Campfires allowed: firepits for hire and wood for sale on site

How might you fancy a peaceful and well-equipped Lake District place to stay, among the peaceful hills of Cumbria, and with easy access to famed Lake District destinations including Lake Windermere, Ambleside, Cartmel and Kendal? Bed down at quiet and secluded Moss Howe Farm for all the above, a couple of miles from local village Witherslack and 15 minutes' drive from Grange-over-Sands.

As it's a farm site, a farm shop is at your disposal too, selling foodie essentials as well as wood for firepits under the Cumbrian stars. This is an excellent setting for campfire evenings: guests can arrange firepit hire by adding a request to the Moss Howe team when booking, or use their own barbecues as long as they're raised off the ground and placed on top of the firepit using the supplied grill. A shop and pub are nearby in Witherslack for supplies and other eats.

Moss Howe is well equipped, with modern shower, washroom and toilet facilities, plus a tumble dryer in the ladies' shower block, and dishwashing basins just outside. Charging facilities are available for an extra fee; freshwater taps are around the accommodation areas, and wifi is at reception.

    Toilets and showers really good, not too big of a campsite so you can easily access toilets and water supply. There's 2 washing up sinks with hot water which was really good. Also you can buy fire wood for only £5, if you need firestarters then it's an extra £1. 15 minute drive to booths and good restaurants. Also only 25 minutes from Windermere. Flat ground and not too windy area.

    Disliked: 

    Shop only opens in the evening, not very good connection

    The staff were friendly and the site was remote. Perfect for walks. The toilets and shower room were kept clean.

    Disliked: 

    The field we was placed on looked like it has been used as a horse field. We came around 7.50pm and was told to find a space. When taking the tents down we discovered horse poop all over the tents. Took a while to wash them all down.

    Nice location and liked the fire pits. Nice warm showers.

    Disliked: 

    Firepit was full of plastic rubbish from previous camper and when I told the staff they said I should empty it myself into the bin which is a little frustrating.

    Price for charging phones etc is a little insane at £1 for just half an hour.

Local attractions

A particularly viewsome way to explore these viewsome surroundings is atop a horse, so make your way first to the Witherslack Hall Equestrian Centre, 10 minutes' drive away, for rides through the woods or on the local fell. A big sheltered arena is also at the centre if you'd like to practise your cantering first.

If horses aren't for you, take to the car instead for the spectacularly scenic 25-minute drive to Windermere and Consiton Water via the A590, among the views of the east side of the lake to Bowness, Troutbeck and Ambleside. You'll need at least a day at Britain's biggest natural water lake, for steam ferry rides from Bowness Bay to Waterhead at Ambleside, or boating trips around the water and Windermere's 18 islands. Also have a potter around Lakeside Pier at the southern end of the lake (the ferry from Bowness finishes here), for the Aquarium of the Lakes showcasing Windermere's wildlife.

Hikes, mountain biking and lake and mountain views are at Grizedale Forest, 35 minutes away.

Must see

  • Windermere Lake Cruises, Lakeside (5.6 kilometers)
  • Levens Hall & Gardens (6.6 kilometers)
  • Lakeland Motor Museum (7.1 kilometers)
