Inn at the Bush: Garden

General

  • Family- and biker-friendly site next to a pub serving food
  • On the edge of the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
  • Hadrian's Wall within three miles; 10 minutes' drive from Wigton

Cumbria’s a cracker of a place for a hol, and the Inn at the Bush is a convenient site for a stopover when roving the region in your motorhome or campervan. Park up here next to the pub, bar and restaurant for fuss-free access to food, drink and the Solway Coast.

The park is on the eastern edge of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, under 10 minutes’ drive from Bowness-on-Solway and 25 minutes west of Carlisle. Twitching type? You’ll be chuffed to know it’s also set close to the Solway Firth and the Solway Wetlands’ birdwatching haven.

While the whole area may sound a little marshy, there are no worries about getting stuck in the mud while at this site: pitches are on ground that has never been flooded and a slight incline means water runs off the land so you can be confident of always being dry.

This park is a simple spot, but you’ll have access to the essentials on the grounds, including toilets, water taps and internet. It’s also family-, dog- and motorbiker-friendly, with four-legged creatures permitted in the pub if you’re planning on dining there.

Please note

The bar is open between 01/01 and 12/31.

No cars/motorcycles at the site. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

This park has no on-site shower facilities.

Ideal little site with good but limited facilities09/12/2021

    Ideal for a stopover. We booked last minute and were delighted with the facilities available considering this is a pub car park. The pitches are hard standing on gravel and there is an elsan point. There are picnic benches available to eat at should you want to. Although there are no shower facilities there are toilets available 24hours.

    There are no electric hook ups or showers so you would need to be fairly self sufficient.

    The inn itself offers typical bar meals which we both enjoyed. There’s a restaurant area and a bar lounge. Outside there are covered areas with comfortable leather sofas ideal for enjoying the inn’s facilities whilst staying outdoors.

    Amazing welcome, amazing place. The staff and owner went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Really approachable and chatty, staying here was a perfect end to our week travelling. Pitched up in our camper on the car park, 24 hour bathroom facilities, clean, tidy and comfortable seating areas. Service was brilliant, food was well worth it, and quiz night was great too! Definitely recommend, and will definitely be back here, thank you!

Local attractions

If you’re a keen birdwatcher, make the Solway Wetlands Centre at RSPB Campfield Marsh (within 15 minutes’ drive) your first stop for explores of the wildlife-rich wetlands and grasslands. And if you’re more of a hiker or a history fan? Get to the start of Hadrian’s Wall at Bowness-on-Solway (10 minutes) or access it just outside Wigton (five minutes) for walks beside this Roman-era structure.

If you fancy making a foray a little further afield, cross the Scottish border to Gretna Green (half an hour) to see the spot where countless illicit marriages have taken place. The Lake District National Park is a little closer by (25 minutes) for jaunts around the fells and tarns; make sure to visit one of the most popular places in the area, Keswick (45 minutes), for especially stunning views.

And if you feel like your trip to Cumbria needs some time by the beach? Set off for Silloth (25 minutes) and take a few hours out of your afternoon investigating this typically northern Victorian seaside resort. Backed by the Lake District’s fells and a fave of the artist Turner, it’s known for its spectacular sunsets.
