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

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

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

This was a small but convenient campsite, in a lovely location.10/04/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The location was excellent and the owner was very friendly and helpful, and even able to accommodate secure bike storage. The toilets were clean, and due to the location were available for campers all day and night. The pitch was flat. The village was small and felt very safe and secure.

    Disliked: 

    Note that this site really would not fit a big tent. It is effectively in the beer garden of the pub and the area is quite small, and with features such as picnic tables.
    There is no shower, but this is not a problem for one or two nights.

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.

Must see

  • World Famous Old Blacksmith's Shop Centre (14.6 kilometres)
