 Great little campsite with everything really you need, a place to charge your mobiles, have a shower and sort out the washing up. Not too busy so the que's for the toilets not too bad. Best of all two great pubs in nearby Ravenstonedale which is only a 10 minute walk away across the fields and when you return you can set up a camp fire which adds to the whole experience. Really friendly and accommodating and would recommend to anyone who enjoys a bit of back to basic camping.

 What a fantastic site! As mentioned by other reviewers, the views of the hills are spectacular. The grass is very 'peg friendly' and there are many flat areas to pitch a tent. Owner was very friendly and helpful. To us it's a plus point that cars aren't allowed on the site and we loved using wheelbarrows to carry our stuff. We didn't have to use the car over the 2 days we were there - we either walked or cycled. We will return out of the school holidays when it will probably be quieter and more to our liking. This is one of the best sites we have used. Well done!

 Having stayed here a few times, mainly as a stop-over elsewhere (though we find any excuse to necessitate a stay), I've grown very fond of the place and look forward to spending longer here soon.

It is pretty much our perfect site: lovely, helpful, yet discreet owner Rosie, good all-round views of rolling hills and endless dry-stone walls, basic facilities in static caravan which are clean and perfectly fine, firepits and wood to buy, large flattish site (with undulations).

The all-round farming activity entertains the kids, and the country lane strolls warm the soul. I've never seen the site all that busy so lots of room and privacy. And all that at good-value prices - 6pp.

Some here mention no cars - maybe that's v new or for busy periods as we've always been able to take ours on (though last time moved it anyway to the newish parking area). There's not much to interrupt the wind so can get a bit blowy. Only minor downside for hardcore peace-lovers may be the faint traffic noise from the main road - otherwise perfection in a field.

 This is one of those sites you don't want to tell anybody about !

Simply put it is what camping is all about basic but with the facilities you need shower, toilet, changing room, kitchen area and somewhere to sit if need be.

Separate bins for all the rubbish to be recycled even the ash from BBQ's is recycled.

The site owner and her daughter couldn't have been more helpful. Rosie hobbled round cleaning everything even though she had a hip replaced less than 3 months ago that is customer service.

Reading the reviews one poster mentioned that the owner needed to buff up on her customers skills eg her tone. One word Poppycock I think he may have been in the wrong in the first place or done something wrong.

 I have just returned from a lovely weekend visit to the site with my boyfriend and our dog. I could not fault the site at all and was perfect for us. The situation of the site was beautiful and views of the surrounding mountains could be seen from all over the camping field. We enjoy a lot of walking and just found ourselves not planning our route but just walking down the numerous public footpaths. We arrived late Friday afternoon and met the owner who was lovely and could always be found walking around the site. There is a static caravan very close to the camping field where there is one toilet and shower, although it is only small it serves its purpose very well and was always spotless. There is also a second outdoor toilet by the house which we often found ourselves using in busy periods. It was very hot when we stayed so we didn't really leave the campsite much and just enjoyed sitting on the field soaking up the sun. There is two local pubs about 10 minutes walk from the site which we did not eat in but seemed very nice. There is also a small shop in which it sells a number of items, however If you find that you have forgotten something I would recommend travelling in to Kirby Stephen as the shop is unlikely to sell it. The only problem we found, which is not the sites fault, is that to get to anywhere you have to drive. When camping we like parking the car up and walking everywhere however walking to local towns is Impractical because of the distance. I would definitely stay here again and can't rate the site high enough. It is a 'back to basics' experience but we loved it.

 Low Greenside was very easy to find and although very accessible from the main roads gives the impression of being much deeper into the countryside as you can barely see a road from the field.

It is also within a reasonable enough walking distance from a bus stop and the local train station for back packers.

The field is smooth for pitching and you can use the firepits provided (with logs to use on sale) and are allowed BBQs.

There is a caravan at the rear of the farmhouse which provides campers with toilet and shower, a kitchen area with a sink and fridge, a seating area equipped with many leaflets and posters about the surrounding area and usefully a shelf of stuff you may have forgotten but need like shampoo, toothpaste etc. It is spotless! I was also really pleased to see that outside there were a variety of bins allowing you to recycle your waste.

The owner seemed to have a sixth sense as was always in sight when we needed to ask something! and was helpful and friendly.

The site was in great condition, had wonderful views, was quiet with only the sound of the sheep and wildlife and was well placed for visiting both the Yorkshire Dales and the Lakes.

I look forward to returning in the future.

 A lovely site situated in a beautiful area. We camped as a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children) with our old camper van that we use as a kitchen. The field at the time was very soft so Rosie understandably did not want vehicles on the grass but we were accommodated with our tent fairly close to the entrance so that we could use the van.

The toilet and shower were housed in an old static van and were spotlessly clean there was another outside toilet near the house, very handy when the shower was in use.

Rosie was very helpful and gave us plenty of information on local walks. We would definitely visit this site again.

 I must admit I thoroughly enjoyed my long weekend at Low Greenside farm. Its only small but that's what helps make the site so good.

I was apprehensive about the facilities because it's basically an old static caravan with just the one toilet and shower unit and you also can use Rosies outside loo.

Mentioning Rosie the owner she is very welcoming and friendly and is always pottering around the site and cleaning the aforementioned caravan very regularly.

I never once used the loo and found it less than spotless. There are about 12 to 15 pitches I guess and all can use the fire pits supplied by Rosie. I will definitely visit again

 As you come over the brow of the hill from Kirby Stephen, the patchwork of fields edged with stone walling is breath taking and nestled amongst this tranquil heaven is Low Greenside Campsite.

This will be my fourth camping trip to Low Greenside in the past 12 months and it is never far away from my thoughts.

The site is camping as you read about it in children's stories; the meadow is beautiful with buttercups and daisies swaying in the breeze, lots of space to play in, the rare opportunity to cook on an open fire or simply toast your toes as you chew the cudd. On a night time the sky sparkles with stars as there is little light pollution which adds magic and mystique to the surroundings.

Rosie the site owner, is friendly, welcoming and helpful and usually pottering about doing something on site.

The facilities are housed in a static caravan and are spotlessly clean and regularly checked by Rosie the camp hostess. Next door to the shower room is a changing room with electricity point and a mirror so you can dry your hair, an absolute must for a glamper like me!

The washing up point is in the kitchen of the caravan and great meeting point to chat to other campers. Housed next to the static caravan is a recycling point. There is also a toilet to the front of the farm building and if you are lucky the swallows will swoop over your head and you may be able to see them nesting.

Kirby Stephen is a hop, skip and a jump away and has everything you should need whilst you are away, Co-op, butchers, newsagents, pubs, take-aways and tourist information.

Low Greenside is a hidden gem of a campsite and excellent value for money.

 A lovely quiet campsite that suited our needs on this trip perfectly. The facilities were spotlessly clean and the setting beautiful.

I love the area surrounding the site, the howgills often being forgotten by the tourist masses which makes it a great place to relax and enjoy the countryside.

The Black swan in Ravenstonedale is worth a trip in fact both pubs within 20 mins walk are very good.

This is a great place for traditional camping with a campfire and relaxation. Just what we love.
