 I'm a bit reluctant to give this site the glowing review it deserves, I want to keep it a secret! Fabulous setting on a hill overlooking Solway Firth, on a clear day you can see Scotland. The pitches are slightly sloping but not too much. The grass is neat and each pitch has it's own EHU point and tap. At the bottom of the field is a block containing 2 toilets and 2 showers, ok it's not many but they were spotless and the showers were the most powerful I've ever used. There were occasional queues but only for a few minutes and the site was full. Also in the same block is the washing machine and drier which we didn't use, and 2 outdoor pot washing sinks. There were meals available from the farmhouse, delivered to your tent but I can't comment on the quality because we didn't have them. It was quiet at night, I can't tell you what the owners do about noisy groups because there were none.

The site is a great base for exploring the area, Keswick, Penrith and Carlise are less than an hour away by car and you can be across the boarder into Scotland in half an hour. Lots of walking, climbing and cycling routes nearby.

All in all, a fantastic, quiet site. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

 A really enjoyable stay on a 'get-away-from-it-all' site. Very welcoming greeting on arrival and given a choice of places to pitch. Toilet/washing/showering facilities were some of the best we have seen (we been camping for nearly 30 years). Caldbeck is a lovely village and we had great food at The Oddfellows pub. Mae's tea room at Uldale is also worth looking out. We didn't try the cooked breakfasts available on site but great to have that service available.

 We stayed at this little gem of a site for 3 nights, mon - thurs, and loved it. We arrived in the pouring rain but we were left to sort our tent etc by the owners and there was no hurry from them, as at this site to pay when you actually arrive, Janet and John are a lovely couple and the area is stunning.

You are inbetween WIGTON and CALDBECK, which we visited both and 20 -30 mins into CARLISLE, which is great. They have a lovely shower/washing cabin, which is kept very clean and piping hot water, there are only 2 toilets and 2 showers but that made no difference to us, they were great. They site is immaculate and very well maintained, I have not got a bad thing to say about wallace farm except, I will definitely be telling everyone about it and will be staying again. 10/10

Reviewer: Normski19 1 review from this member

 This was our first camping adventure with our new Outwell Nevada M Tent, for two adults and because of the locality to the lake district, we had a choice of two campsites, Wallace Lane Farm & Mains Farm.

Because of the Mains Farm high season price of 25 per night for a tent pitch with EHU, we thought that was a bit too expensive, so we opted for Wallace Lane Farm for 28 for two nights stay. I can honestly say, thank god we did the right thing.

This campsite is amazing. When we arrived, we were met with Janet, the owner. She made us feel very welcome indeed. She then showed us where to pitch our tent, and had a good choice to choose from, all with EHU & Water point.

The site has a 1st class toilet/shower block with everything you could ask for, absolutely spotless, and no faults to be found. The block also has a washing machine/drier facility but we did not use that. It did say wi-fi available but we couldn't get on it, but that didn't bother us one bit. This site has views to die for. You could see the Solway Firth in the distance. There's plenty of natures sounds to let you know where your at too. A few miles either way you have Caldbeck, & Wigton. We preferred Calbeck, a very picturesque village, with a pub. And the the lovely drive to Lake Bassenthwaite, & then Keswick.

I may have missed something out, but the reviews of 10/10 for this beautiful site, is exactly what it says on the tin !

Well done for an amazing site, we will definitely be back without a shadow of doubt.

Reviewer: MartinAndNessa 2 reviews from this member

 This is a beautiful site offering peace and quiet (excepting the birds and animals) and spectacular scenery, just what we wanted. The pitches are very gently sloping and come with EHU (if needed) and individual water tap, saving the need to go for a walk to fill the kettle. Two toilets and two (incredibly powerful) showers at the bottom of the field, which were kept immaculately during our stay.

No other facilities in the immediate location, although shops a couple of miles away in Wigton (including Lidl) with bigger supermarkets in Carlisle, approximately 20 minutes away. We found a cracking butcher in Cockermouth, which was a lovely little town, without the hustle and bustle the main Lake District has. That said, Keswick is about half hour away so if that's what you want this would make a perfect base.

We were lucky with the weather and spent a lot of time on site, simply relaxing and enjoying the countryside. The owners have clearly spent a lot of time and trouble making their site just so, in fact the only possible snag I found was the mirror above the sink could have done with being a couple of inches higher (for shaving). Given the incredible value for money I can certainly live with that.

We spoke with a lady who was staying in the cottage and she had nothing but praise to give. Additionally, a couple of cabins are almost ready at the top of the field, offering a slightly upmarket experience to our tent. They have a wood burner and are superbly appointed.

Great friendly owners with plenty of interesting information about the surrounding area and what to do, should inspiration be needed. There were a few younger kiddies staying whilst we were there and all seemed to be well occupied with nature.

If you want away from it all then I suspect this is as good as it gets. Wonderful site with all Cumbria has to offer on the doorstep.

Reviewer: Bondy1966 1 review from this member

 We recently stayed at this campsite and found it to be quite a hidden gem. When we phoned to book the owners were extremely helpful and upon arrival were shown to the spot. It was picturesque and the facilities were spotless. The site only takes a few tourers and was so peaceful it was wonderful. We took our dogs and there were no problems they were welcome. The showers are the nicest I've ever been in on any site. We will definitely return soon.

Reviewer: Stalkydog 2 reviews from this member

 We stayed here for four nights with family who were travelling in another motorhome. It is hard to fault this site.

It stands towards the top of a hill and offers excellent views over the Solway firth. The hard standings were level and had individual water taps. The electric hook up sockets were in pairs and within easy reach of each hard standing

The facilities are all excellent, and well maintained.

A great site, I would happily recommend it to anyone.

Reviewer: Dreamline 3 reviews from this member

 My wife and I have just returned from a three night stay, a great find and will be definitely back. The facilities are probably the best we have had on a site of this standard and offered fabulous value, the views are stunning over the Solway firth into Scotland. The only comment (only due to our appalling weather)is the hard stand could be a little wider so you are not walking over the sodden grass, apart from that its 10 out of 10 a gem of a find.

Reviewer: Thomclan 2 reviews from this member

 Great site views lovely, toilets clean, but hard standing sites very narrow. Poor drainage so no space to walk out without being muddy. No place for awning. Hardstanding needs to be extended plenty space to do this. This would enhance a lovely site. No wifi as advertised either needs sorted or taken off service provided, but all said would return again. Hope the criticism is helpful. Would recommend the place to anyone, thanks for a lovely stay.

Reviewer: Gypsy75 2 reviews from this member

 Lovely site, even though a little off the beaten track, but that's what we were looking for. Lake District (lakes and towns / villages) easily accessible from site.

Good facilities on site, new toilet block is lush. Owners fantastic, very friendly and even helped jump start the car when the battery went!

Lots of wildlife to see (and hear). Site gently sloping but level at the top of the field. Plenty of electric hookups.

Just the ticket if you want a relaxing time, away from the hustle and bustle. Perfect location to explore the delights of the lakes.

Fantastic views over the Solway Firth and Dumphries & Galloway. Close to Fells.

Thanks to the for getting us back on the road
