General

  • Family-friendly site on a working farm with scenic views
  • Woodland valley with walks, bike rides and riding trails all around
  • Peaceful Lake District site - no parties or groups

Moss Side Farm near Cumbria's Broughton-in-Furness should hit the spot for hikers: it's in a woodland valley with many footpaths leading directly from the farm. And for watery types too, as the farm is in the Lake District, 10 minutes' drive from the nearest lake and 40 from Windermere. And for cyclists, and horse riders, and those who like smashing views of lakeland fells leading down to the Irish Sea...

This is a small, friendly and family-run site on a working hill farm with working dogs along with sheep, cows, ponies, ducks and hens. Two ladies' and two gents' showers, a freezer and a washing-up area are among the site amenities.

Moss Farm's nearest village is Broughton-in-Furness a seven-minute drive or 30 or so minute walk away; here guests can buy bread from the award-winning Broughton bakery and groceries and meat from a family-run butcher and grocer. The village also has three pubs, two of which serve food, a restaurant, two cafés, a petrol station, a post office, a bank and a gift shop.

Quiet well-behaved dogs are welcome at Moss Farm as long as they're kept on leads while on site.

    Lots of choices on where to put your tent , no set pitches , just find a space you like and put your tent up. Open fires allowed , owner brings round logs each evening.

    Disliked: 

    Toilets and showers are basic and a bit old school , no problem for me but others may not like them

    Beautiful tranquil spot to stay in. Really novel pods/carriages made for an excellent weekend.

    It was colder than expected and we couldn't get the wet wood to burn properly, be prepared in less than fair weather and buy dry wood.

    No regrets and no dissatisfaction, a fantastic experience!

    Very Quaint and exactly what we were looking for. The cabin was far more spacious than i expected and the log stove was easy to get going. The host and all of her family were incredibly helpful. Bathrooms were very clean. It was great being so close to all the animals and the farm has some very friendly dogs who just wanted to stay by our side as much as possible. Loads of information on local walks and pubs was provided.

    Disliked: 

    The single hanging light in the cabin did not create much light at all (we think it may have been running out of battery) so we fully suggest that people bring torches (one head torch made it a lot brighter).

    The Rail Camping Pod was excellent, and even in the wind and rain, the stove enabled us to keep warm and cosy. The facilities were close by and spotlessly clean. And the information on walks etc in the wash-pot room was very useful. The owners hand their dogs) were all very friendly and welcoming. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Fabulous little site, not overrun with people.02/21/2020

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Set in the most beautiful surroundings, these quaint little glamping pods are ideal for a relaxing getaway. The owners were very welcoming and only a short walk away if there was anything we needed. We were very unfortunate to be visiting in possibly the worst downfall this month, but it didn't stop us from thoroughly enjoying a mini trip. Amazing memories, just a shame about the weather. This would be perfect in the spring time, I will definitely be returning.

    Disliked: 

    Due to the heavy rain , we did experience a little leak in the pod, however we are used to camping and so it didn't bother us too much.

Local attractions

Of the many footpaths straight from the farm, the main one is the Foxfield to Broughton route along a disused railway line right into Broughton. Other paths can take you to the Broughton Mills area, Seathwaite valley and Ulpha valley; ask the Moss Farm team to point you in the right direction.

If you're in the area for watersports, Coniston Lake, the third biggest in the Lake District, is the closest to the farm and is 10 minutes' drive away. Otherwise try pony trekking at Spoon Hall near Coniston, Muirthwaite Green at Silecroft or Cumbrian Heavy Horses in the Whicham Valley, all within 15 minutes' drive.

Historic house fans have many in the area to pick from, like Muncaster Castle, Sizer Castle, Holker Hall and Levens Hall, as well as many National Trust houses such as Dove House in Grasmere, home of daffs man William Wordsworth.

The towns of Windermere and Ambleside are about 20 minutes' drive away, as is South Lakes Animal Park at Dalton-in-Furness, an attractive option for animal fans.

The staff at the Broughton-in-Furness tourist information centre can give you tips on what's best to see and do.
