Reviewer: Janetez78 1 review from this member

 We decided to go to low greenside on our honeymoon, and it was a perfect 5 days. First of all we have never met so many friendly people, Rosie is so nice and looks after you, and all the neighbours talk and make you feel welcome.

The site is basic but has everything you need, Jane my wife was cold on the first night so Rosie got her a couple of sleeping bags to use as blankets, she kept asking if we were ok and needed anything. There is a static caravan which has a toilet, shower changing room and sofa to sit in.

About 5 minutes drive there is a trout fishery (Jane caught 3 rainbow trout), there's a par 3 golf course just round the corner and there are lots of walks from the campsite (I would recommend smardale viaduct. Kirkby stephen is about 10 minutes away and you can get everything you need.

The site is central if you want to travel a bit the lakes, Yorkshire moors, Eden valley but never needed to travel as although it is a quiet area there is so much to do on the door step, fishing, tennis, play area, 3 restaurants, golf and of course lots of walks, I would recommend the kings head for something to eat.

We just want to thank Rosie for having us and making us feel welcome, definitely going back next year.

 It was our first family camp and despite the wind and the rain we had a great time.

There is plenty of space and the facilities are clean and respected by everyone. The shop in Ravenstonedale (at The Black Swan, a walk across the fields)was well stocked with the basics.

The farm has a dairy herd so they are milked twice a day, don't be in a rush to go somewhere when the cows are coming up the lane for milking!

We will definitely be back to do some of the lovely walks from the campsite - I understand there are 9 of varying lengths and difficulties.

 Just back from a six night stay at low Greenside farm, the location is perfect for visiting the dales, the lakes ECt and the views are beautiful.

The tent pitches are huge and even though it was really busy every one had plenty of room, the toilets and faculties are kept spotless and the owners are very helpful and friendly.

I would definitely recommend this site and I will be returning some time before the end of October.

All in all we had a fantastic time :-)

 Stayed for five nights. We had originally planned to stay three but liked the campsite and the area so stayed longer.

Pros: quiet - good nights sleep, huge pitches, friendly and helpful owner, camp fires allowed in firepits, close to Howgill fells and Yorkshire Dales for excellent walking, tents only, good pubs and village store in nearby Ravenstonedale village, dark skies

Cons: facilities (two toilets, one bathroom, one washing up sink) not really enough for the small numbers of campers, high turnover of campers due to proximity to M6, car park needs to be about 5-6 spaces bigger

As a previous review mentioned, there is a hum from milking machinery when pitched near the farmhouse. However it is a quiet soporific noise (bit like a fridge running) and never found it disturbed our sleep.

 Excellent, lovely site. Very friendly owner who is extremely helpful. The site whilst being 'basic' is immaculate, well provisioned and clean. Despite limiting the number to around 30 people don't be fooled thinking this is because the site is small. The site is a large field that gives plenty of room to all campers. Perfectly placed in between the dales, lakes and Yorkshire. Highly recommended.

 We have only just resumed camping after a break of several years. Just occasionally a strapline makes you go out and buy the product. 'Camping as it used to be' did it for me - I had to go to this place, and was not in the slightest disappointed. Lots of space, the chance to have a fire, friendly fellow campers, the sight of other people's small children chest-high in buttercups, a host who works her socks off yet manages to be great company and attentive. And, of course, a stunning location. We did some gentle local walks, went for a slap-up birthday meal in the excellent Black Swan nearby, and sauntered around the delightful town of Kirkby Stephen. But there's much else to do for those who are fitter than us, or prepared to travel further from the site. A perfect weekend! An extra shower would be good - though I realise the site is not usually this busy.

 Quiet site with lovely views across the Howgills. The village of Ravenstonedale is lovely with two great pubs, both with gardens.

If pitched near to the farm buildings a light sleeper may be awoken early by milking machinery (not intrusive noise, and this is a working farm!).

The site is well laid out with a gravelled car-park where vehicles are limited to if the grass is wet (plenty of wheelbarrows for moving equipment to your pitch). The owner is friendly and helpful.

There was only one other couple on the site during our stay. My only concern is that two toilets and one shower may not be enough when the site is busy, although kept very clean. The static caravan with one toilet and shower also has kitchen facilities and a plentiful stock of local information.

We'll definitely visit again, but will choose a quiet time again.

 We have just returned from a fabulous stay at this lovely campsite and we will definitely return.

The site is one large field surrounded by a dry-stone wall and fields of cows, horses and sheep. It is so picturesque and peaceful and the children loved watching the cows hanging their heads over the wall by our tent and going up the lane for milking each day.

The pitches are really well spaced out so it is very private and each has a fire pit which was wonderful. The facilities are housed in a static caravan which is quirky and fun. The caravan was always clean and cosy and we never faced a queue for the loo or shower.

Whilst we stayed, there were no cars on the field as it had been wet but we loved that. It was an easy walk over the field with the wheelbarrows provided and the site felt more relaxed, quiet and child-friendly with no cars.

The owner was a lovely lady, always available but discrete, a perfect hostess.

We loved this back to basics site and we will definitely return.

 We have just returned from a 3 night stay here with our children and friends, 4 adults and 3 children age 12 & 5. It is a lovely back to basics campsite as stated and as per previous reviews there is only 1 shower and 2 toilets. (1 in the caravan and 1 outdoors) I must say though these were kept spotlessly clean. The owner was always on hand should you need to know anything or need any assistance, my 5 year old took quite a shine to her as she was very friendly and even took him into one of the barns and shown him the baby swallows. He was also amused by being surrounded by all the sheep.

There was 2 small pubs within a 10 minute walking distance, either down the lane or you can cut across the fields, I would advise to book though as we just had a stroll down and found both fully booked. We did just have a drive into the village though where we found a lovely Chinese takeaway called the panda, which we could highly recommend.

Just near the pubs there was a park and tennis court, although you do need to take your own rackets.

The camp allows fire pits which the children loved. The only downfall we found was there was no music allowed, we had our music playing but was asked to turn this off, and noise kept to a minimum after 10. 30.

Overall though this is a lovely campsite if you are looking for somewhere peaceful and quiet.

 Really enjoyed our two nights here, despite the wind and rain that threatened to bring the tent down. Gorgeous views with loads of walks from the site, including 15mins or so to the nearest village where there are two lovely pubs. One of the pubs has a shop (ask at the bar if it is closed). We had a delicious meal at the pub on the rainy evening - friendly atmosphere.

Loved the space on the site, lots of room between tents. Also really enjoyed the camp fires (it was dry the first eve so had a lovely time sitting around it).

Facilities kept spotless, the site was quite quiet when we were there so no waiting for the loo. (There are two)

A site to return to.
