With panoramic views of Blencathra and the northern fells Gill Head Farm is a perfect location for a stay in the beautiful Lake District.
On our family run hill farm in the northern lakes we have something for everyone, Camping Pods, a lovely vintage Gypsy Wagon, level sheltered pitches for touring caravans and motorhomes with hardstanding and electric hookups , and grass (and some all weather) pitches for camping , with or without electric hook-ups.
We offer spacious, well maintained, wash facilities, (with plenty hot water!)a laundry room, covered pot washing areas, and a great communal room with sofas, TV, free wifi, dining area ,and fridge freezer .
Our lovely children's play area is always a great place for your kids to meet new friends there are also meadows to play in a streams to paddle in.
We allow small campfires in firepits or similar.
Our site is a great place for families, walkers, and outdoor enthusiasts. We have secluded areas that can be used for groups wishing to camp together such as walking parties , C2C groups, school and Duke of Edinburgh students. Well behaved pets are welcome and there are some nice places to walk them on the farm .
For those looking for more solitude , we have a lovely quiet camping area away from the main field situated by our river and waterfall.
Some basic essentials ( of milk, eggs, bread, drinks and sweets) can be bought at our site reception area and hot drinks and a choice of freshly made made croissants, porridge or hot breakfast rolls filled with grilled bacon, free range eggs, and local sausages can be ordered for the morning ready to fuel you up for a day enjoying the Lakes and Fells.

A warm welcome to all staying at Gill Head Farm,a peaceful, rural ,yet central location with the lake District National Park.
