Fabulous little site, a 'proper' CL. Andrew & Val could not be more kind, polite and helpful, but do not intrude.

The site is immaculate and the views across to the Pennines are stunning.

Limited facilities which will not suit all - water & waste on every pitch, extra hoses available if yours don't reach. Toilet next to farmhouse. That's it! No noise, no play area for kids, nothing to disturb the peace and quiet.

Good mobile phone signal so I was able to use my MiFi box and get a decent internet connection

What a brilliant site! Val and Andrew could not have been more helpful with a lovely warm welcome and Andrew was a mine of information regarding the local area. The view from the site must rank as one of the best in the UK. Plenty of walks and of course High Cup Nick is about a ten mile hike from the site and back. We nearly got there but had to turn back because of the weather. Woke up on Sunday morning to find the hills had a covering of snow which made for some lovely pictures. Another plus is the night sky as there is virtually no light pollution and Andrew said you might even catch the Northern Lights. Will definitely be back.

Another gemstone for my black book.

There are two parts to this site. The original is in the top field.

The other part is the lower field.

Both take 5 units, are fully serviced with 16 amp EHU, have the same magnificent panoramic uninterrupted High Pennine view.

Very clean and tidy. All hardstanding with grass. Lower field slopes. I used four one inch boards to get level. No problem. A very clean toilet is provided next to the farmhouse if you don't want to use your own. 16 per night including awning. Very pleasant owners on what is a 300 acre working farm. Cows were well behaved although one in particular got very vocal early in the morning on a few occasions.

The local pub, a short walk away, is now run by the brewery and in the throes of re establishing itself. Hopefully when we return it's fortunes will turned the corner with longer opening hours.

Beers and food acceptable and fresh.

Plenty of space for dog walking. My Springers were well worn out every day.

I stayed here early in the year and had a truly relaxing time.

The views from the site are absolutely stunning, and you can and I did spend hours just watching the play of the light on the hills in front of you with the clouds scudding across the skies

The owners are delightful and nothing seems to much trouble, from the first welcoming smile to the last cheerful wave as you leave. I am self sufficient as I travel, but it was a joy to book into a 'super plot' which they all are, and at a very reasonable price.

Which I hope won't be my last and will definitely be back when next in their area

If you are travelling by sat nav then watch out as it will take you to the wrong place. So check with the hosts first for accurate directions.

I have given 10/10 for child friendliness as although I didn't notice anything specific in the way of a play area the entire site was securely fenced and very safe, and there were lots of wildlife and farm animals to see, plus walks across the fields, so it would be safe for young children and interesting for older ones.

This is a gem of a site. The views are amazing, the whole site is immaculate and the owners are extremely helpful. This was our first stay but certainly won't be our last. We were able to connect water and waste direct to our caravan which is always a bonus. The only downside is that the toilet is a walk away in the farmhouse outbuildings and there is no shower. On arrival the owner helped us to pitch and was very precise with her spirit level. From the site you have a panoramic view of the Pennines. Local pub in easy walking distance and serves excellent Pizzas. Definitely worth a visit.

Reviewer: Ianbriary 2 reviews from this member

We stayed with friends in an adjacent caravan during early May bank holiday and really enjoyed our stay. The site is lovely, consists of a CL located next to a privately owned site, we stayed in the privately owned part. To be honest, there is very little difference. We were pleased that the pitches are fully serviced which made life easier (be careful on caravan positioning for drains)

The site is a working farm but the gardens are nicely landscaped and pitches all hard-standing (no problems putting awnings up). Its only about 1 1/2 mile from Appleby and not far from Penrith on the A66.

The views over the fields towards the Pennines are fantastic and it was great that we could just walk our dog off the lead in the fields without restriction (when we stayed the cows were still in the sheds). The owners are very friendly indeed and even helped level our vans up on arrival. We enjoyed the walks down the lanes by the river and also enjoyed the short walk over the fields to the local pub (The New Inn at Brampton) for a very enjoyable Sunday lunch accompanied by more than a few pints of Tirril beer (very nice local beer!)

We will definitely be back !

Reviewer: Debbiedivacat 10 reviews from this member

Just had a lovely weekend at this site and agree with the other review. The site takes 5 caravans which are all on hardstanding and are service pitches. There is only one toilet available for use but don't let that put you off going. The view from the pitches is fabulous and the nearby pub is well worth a visit. We had an excellent and very reasonably priced Sunday lunch washed down with great beer. We will definitely be back again.

I have stayed on this site several times and it really is a very nice site.

This is a 5 van site in a wonderful location with open views both over the north pennines and lake district mountains. Open farm fields are adjacent to the pitches which lead to the New Inn pub in Brampton within walking distance.

The food here is excellent and the locals very welcoming and dog friendly. The toilet on site is clean and near to the pitches. The owners are very friendly and can't do enough for you.

They also run a bed and breakfast on site. The pitches are fully serviced with 16amps electric. The town of Appleby is very close by with lots of shops.

Footpaths lead from the site into the surrounding countryside which is a haven for walkers.
