 This was our first visit to this campsite, so we didn't know what to expect. The owner, Marcus, was lovely and showed us where everything was. He said to have a walk round and choose where we wanted to pitch.

The field was huge and the pitches were of a large size, each with a firepit. You could bring your own firewood or you can purchase it from Marcus ( a 6 bag lasted us the three nights as the logs were big) and we were supplied with free kindling.

The field was easy to pitch on and it was in good condition, no flooding or bogging!

You could use the wheelbarrows to take everything to and from your pitch ( what a godsend that was).

There is a caravan with the separate showers and a sink. Next to the last shower there is a little area where you can plug your hair dryer in.

There's also a sink to use if the other washing up area is in use and some plug sockets to charge your phones etc.

I left mine charging on a few occasions and it was fine.

The toilet block is just behind the caravan and has 3 modern toilets and a separate urinal. They are kept well equipped and clean with toilet roll, hand-wash, paper towels and ladies you don't have to worry about those personal items as there's disposable bags and a separate bin.

Now, for those of you worried about camping and using the facilities during COVID then let me reassure you that this campsite has thought of everything. There is spray and paper towels to clean down the wheelbarrows and a hand sanitiser pump.

At the entrance to the shower/toilet area there is a hand sanitiser pump and there

Are separate in and out entrances to the caravan ( showers). Only one person washing up at a time ( unless part of the same household).

There are some lovely walks and stunning views, and Sedbergh and Kirkby stephen are a short drive away in the car, but please be aware that some shops tend to close on a Monday or Tuesday. Its easy to ask Google before you go, 4g signal is good.

There is no downsides to this campsite at all and we would definitely love to stay there again.

One happy lady. X

 Amazing place, can not praise it enough. From the views to the loos.

The campsite was full but still you was not overlooked or stuck for space. The addition of the campfires made it even more special at night times.

Magnus the owner was lovely and always out and about offering help advise or just a friendly chat. The toilets, showers and wash up area were lovely always clean and well looked after. The fact you can go in and leave your phone on charge awesome was an extra added bonus.

Beautiful country walks in every direction and if you venture out go to the local pubs. We went to the black swan which was beautiful and the food was scrummy.

We will be back and again very soon. Its a place you visit once and will always want to go back. We were sad to leave but already talking about our return.

Amazing place well done on your hard work x

 Beautiful site, with glorious panoramic views from all pitch locations.

Very well maintained campsite, with excellent toilet, washing up, showering, and recycling facilities, kept spotless at all times. Very useful charging points for phones/battery packs as well.

A lot of effort has been made to install sanitising stations for COVID-19. Wheelbarrows used to transport equipment to pitch, as cars not allowed on field. This works well, and not having cars on the field makes the site more picturesque.

The open fire set up is simple and works very well, a wheel hub mounted on 3 fire bricks, and flagstone. Gives off lovely heat and firewood is available for 6 a bag.

The owner Magnus went out of his way to welcome us to the site and was available for queries about the local area.

Will definitely be visiting again.

 The cleanest, most welcoming campsite we've stayed at.

It's perfectly suited to those of us who value simplistic camping; sitting around a fire and enjoying beautiful countryside with space around to play in.

The toilet and washing up facilities feel fresh and clean and Magnus the campsite manager went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable.

With the beautifully crafted on-site glamping available for those after a cosier trip, I can honestly recommend this site to anybody.

Thanks Magnus.

 Great site - really good facilities, clean and spacious fields with lots of space.

Really helpful owner, Magnus could not have done more to help. Quick walk to pub doing excellent food and the site's quiet at night after 2230 as advertised.

I would highly recommend a stay there.

 As the final reviewer of this site in 2018 and the first camper of 2019 I thought I would update my review regarding the improved facilities provided over the winter (although after the snow this week winter may not be over!)

The new and additional facilities (showers, toilets and washing up facilities)are totally in keeping with this sites creditable ethos and are both modern, quirky and enviromentally sound.

Can I congratulate Magnus on continuing his thoughtful and idiosyncratic way he is developing this site.

Reviewer: Jim cutts 2 reviews from this member

 I have used this site for two weeks this year as a base to hike Alfred Wainwrights 'Walks on the Howgill Fells'. The hosts Rosie and Magnus have been the most helpful and friendly I have come across, they help when you want it and leave you alone when you don't.

The site is large and undulating, so everyone isn't looking directly at other tents. The grass is perfect camping length not bowling green standard. In June the field looks like a buttercup meadow, and the ground is soft, ideal for tent pegs.

The quirky facilities could not be cleaner, and other campers seem to be considerate and in my two weeks quiet and uneventful.

The site is used by 1 man campers through to families and small camper vans.

This site is not for people who need to be near Tescos, (Other stores are also not available!) but is ideal for the old fashioned campers who like to get away from it all.

There are two good pubs within 15 mins walking.

What more could you want from a site.

Reviewer: Danny4 9 reviews from this member

 We stayed at the site between the 13th & 17th August.

Rosie gave us a warm and friendly welcome and always made time to be helpful to her guests.

Loved the location of the site: great views of the Howgills, decent elevation, but not too high to make a walk down to the village a problem.

Varied and good walks can be made from the site, with easy access to Smardale Gill after crossing the main road.

The site caravan facilities were always clean.

The fact that all cars are parked on the carpark rather than on the field ensures that the field has an attractive, unspoilt appearance. Nice!

Thank you for having us.

 A very pleasant and happy site. Very warm welcome from Rose and Mag who offered help to unload my car parked on little car park on edge of field. Transfer of tenting equipment by one of the numerous wheelbarrows.

Facilities a bit quirky in a caravan which has everything, freezer, fridge, wash-up, loo, shower and a 5 phone charge socket. Sitting area, a fire and lots of information. Plus a lovely white washed loo attached to the farmhouse. New loos to open soon.

Chickens running around. Long distant views of almost 360degree of surrounding hills. Plenty of space between tents. Walks and pubs from site.
