General

  • Pop-up wild campsite in the scenic Eden Valley
  • A mile to Kirkby Stephen; 15 minutes' drive to Appleby-in-Westmorland
  • Well-behaved dogs welcome; firepit for every pitch

Hear that sound? It's the quiet murmur of the river Eden as it flows a few yards from your pitch at Eden Escapes, a wild-style farm site deep in the Cumbrian countryside.

This quiet open field is easily accessible from the road, is surrounded by rolling grassland and has sheep and cows for neighbours. It's a short amble away from the Eden river, where you can stop to swim, paddle and relax before heading into the historic market town of Kirkby Stephen a mile to the south. The pretty village of Winton is a similar distance away via local footpaths too and is home to a friendly local pub and kids' playground.

The views here are truly spectacular, with sweeping vistas over Wild Boar fell and, further to the north, the peaks of the Pennines. Eden Escapes is within reach of both, with day trips to the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District national parks also easily doable.

In terms of facilities, this is a simple spot with portaloo toilets and running water. The farm is a pretty laidback place to be – well-behaved dogs are welcome to join you here, barbecues are permitted and campfires are allowed in the designated areas.

Swimming in river on site, clean site, fire pits provided.09/06/2022

    Everything! First time camping with our youngest daughter (14 months old) and we had an absolutely amazing time. We were a little nervous as it was our first time we have stayed without EHU and 'toilet/shower block' but portaloos were spotless and hosts welcomed us and told us where everything was. Great hosts, who allowed us to stay as long as we liked on our final day. We travelled with friends and we've decided to return every year!
