Well-kept grass pitches

General

  • Peaceful site on a farm five minutes' drive from Bassenthwaite
  • Spectacular views over Bassenthwaite Lake and Skiddaw
  • Distillery and wildlife park within a few minutes' drive

Let’s face it, if you’re off to the Lake District you’re likely to be looking for lots of chances to look at lakes. So put a big tick in that box for Irton House Farm, a peaceful place where watery views can be had without even leaving your pitch.

And it’s not just any old lake that forms the backdrop here: you’ll be looking out over Bassenthwaite, one of the area’s largest and loveliest (and in a region of pretty stiff competition too). Being a farm site, you’ll share those views with the resident sheep and chickens, but around the sizeable site there's plenty of space to relax or to run about and play games. (Not outdoor-games weather? Retreat to the games room for pool and table tennis.)

As scenic as that outlook is, you’ll not be wanting to limit yourself to just the one lake, so it’s handy that there are plenty more within easy reach. Buttermere, Derwentwater and Crummock Water are all within a half-hour drive, as is the Solway coast if you fancy a blast of sea air with your aquatic views.

Getting out for a walk or a bike ride is pretty straightforward on local paths, and you can safely get all mucky knowing that a bike wash and free heated shower block await your return. Post-activity pubs and grub can be had five minutes away in Bassenthwaite or with a slightly longer drive to Cockermouth.

Please note

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

Dogs are not allowed in the on-site accommodations.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    I loved this site, very friendly family run farm. Spectacular views. Facilities kept clean and tidy. Really enjoyed our stay.

    Disliked: 

    Had been raining a lot so very muddy pitching awning and parking up campervan on field was a little difficult. I’m not complaining though, this can’t be helped and the owners were very helpful, guiding the best way.

    Amazing customer service, and beautiful campsite for scenery. Easily accesible for enjoyable walks to discover the area. Outstanding pitches that were privately situated so theres is enough experience to camp and have your comfort from anyone else. Possibly the best campsite i've been to in regards to the tent pitch as it was clean and private. Very clean and quiet, enjoyable for any ages in my opinion.

    Farm shop on site with loads of fresh produce. Fresh milk dispenser, small town is a 5 min drive away. Washing facilities were clean and well looked after. Only a small campsite but worth the price, would stay again!

Local attractions

It’s all about getting outdoors around here – there are walks galore through the area’s stunning scenery (not just lakes but also fells, forests and mountains). Routes are around for all abilities, from accessible ‘miles without stiles’ walks through to scrambles up Skiddaw (the 931-metre peak is 20 minutes’ drive from the farm).

Put your boots aside for a while to favour other activities – head to Whinlatter Forest Park (20 minutes' drive) for mountain biking, Derwentwater (20 minutes) for kayaking and trout fishing, or Cockermouth Golf Club (10 minutes) for a round or two.

If you’ve got the kids with you, you may like to take a trip to the Lake District Wildlife Park; if not, a dram at the Lakes Distillery or a tour of Jennings Castle Brewery may be on the cards. And of course it’s always worth making a point of visiting the Derwent Pencil Museum, 15 minutes away in Keswick.
