Howbeck Lodge: Site view (photo added by manager on 06/09/2021)

General

  • Peaceful touring pitches on a family-run working farm with great views
  • Bassenthwaite, Ullswater and Helvellyn within a half-hour drive
  • By the C2C cycle trail; 10 minutes' walk from a village shop and pub

What would you say to a stint at Howbeck Lodge, a peaceful site on a family-run working farm at the northern tip of the Lake District? If the answer is 'yes, please', then you can look forward to lovely views over the river that runs past the pitches and out to the green countryside beyond…

This may be a rural site, but it’s a most conveniently located one too: the M6 (Junction 41) is easily accessed 10 miles away, and the village of Hesket Newmarket is 10 minutes’ walk away for a village shop and pub. The C2C (Coast to Coast) route passes just by the farm as well, so this makes a handy stopover for any cyclists making their way across the country by pedal power.

Days out are just as handy: it’s straightforward to get to several of the northern lakes (including Ullswater and Bassenthwaite) and peaks like Skiddaw and Helvellyn, or to Hadrian’s Wall or the Solway coast. Carlisle is half an hour’s drive away if you feel the need for a bit of city time.

The farm’s serviced pitches are dog friendly and have access to facilities including a toilet and shower block a short walk away.

Local attractions

If you're looking to spend some time by the water, Bassenthwaite Lake (20 minutes' drive) will surely be on your list. This most northerly lake in the national park is very quiet, with few towns and villages around its shores. Head here for walks along the path that runs along the western shore, or stick around to discover the animals on display just to the north of the lake at the Lake District Wildlife Park (20 minutes).

It's a short drive to other top attractions too, the likes of which include historic Dalemain House (20 minutes), the Lakes Distillery (20 minutes), mountain peaks like Helvellyn (30 minutes) or Skiddaw (35 minutes) and the far-famed Derwent Pencil Museum, where you can learn all about graphite. Birdoswald Roman Fort, part of Hadrian’s Wall, can be reached by road in 50 minutes as well.

Cumbrian life isn't all about the fells and lakes, though: you can take yourself off to Carlisle (30 minutes) for a more urban day out at the castle, cathedral and Tullie House museum, or you could get to Cumbria's gorgeous coastline in about 35 minutes for days out on the sand.

Must see

  • Mirehouse Historic House and Gardens (15.1 kilometres)
  • Castlerigg Stone Circle (15.8 kilometres)
  • Dalemain Historic House & Gardens (17.5 kilometres)
