 We've stayed at Moss Howe Farm several times now. It's a lovely site with an easy going atmosphere. Being able to barbecue and also use their fire baskets is a big plus for us, logs kindling and firelighters are sold at the farm shop for a reasonable price.

The Derby arms is quite close, with a good selection of real ales. We haven't tried the food but are told it is very good. It' also a great base to explore the lakes from. Very close to Grange and Cartmel.

On this trip we didn't stray to far due to social distancing problems. We went into Bowness, but didn't get out of the car as the place was packed with no one paying any attention to distancing whatsoever. We took our own washing up gear and tried to use the shower blocks as little as possible as we read in the site info that these were very sensible requirements. Unfortunately some people on the site were ignoring this

On our second night we were kept awake until 1-45 in the morning by a group of very noisy young people. Shame really, as there were a lot of children on the site. Wouldn't let this put us off though as thoughtless selfish people like this do unfortunately turn up on most sites from time to time.

Over all, I would say Moss Howe is one of our favourite camp sites and we look forward to going there again in the future.

 Just returned as a family of four from a two night stay at this fabulous little site. Showers were lovely and and hot! Little socket (with a small fee) for your hairdryer, mobile etc! Camp shop stayed open quite late with all the bits and bobs you need! Buy a small bag of wood from the shop and you have use of the fire pits dotted around the site. Beautiful location and extremely helpful staff! Would highly recommend this lovely little site to any couples and families looking for a bit of piece and quiet! We will without doubt be returning this year! The Thompsons

 This is great traditional campsite. Clean, crisp and tidy. No play ground, but plenty of play space. Toilets and showers excellent.

Shop well stocked with most of what you need and lots of things you want. You're even allowed fires. Logs available from the shop and fire pits provided.

No noisy / busy roads nearby.

Grange over sands closest town, Chippy Tea one night :-) lots of great shops too bakery, butchers. Windermere close too.

We're going back!

 Such a lucky find! This camp site is absolutely beautiful.

Me and my boyfriend stayed for a few nights and we were made to feel super welcome! They have a little farm shop on site that is stocked with all the necessities too so don't worry if you forgot something as they will probably have it!

It has some stunning views and I would highly recommend to anyone!

The shower/toilet blocks were extremely clean and well maintained!

There was lots of walking routes close by in walking distance of the campsite as well as some great locations in short driving distance such as Grizedale Forest, Morecombe Bay, Cartmel (which has the best ever sticky toffee pudding!)

We will definitely be coming back! :)

 Had a really good camping experience here (except pity about the drizzle, can't blame them for that!)

Very friendly welcome by the lady in their little shop, which sells some food items and a few camping essentials, firewood etc, and has information leaflets for local attractions.

Not just your usual flat boring field - here, pitch areas are arranged on hillocks etc (though they are flat), where there is short grass, then long grass in between pitches which adds a sense of separation between tents, and a bit of wildness.

The site is surrounded by trees and greenery much of the way around, with nice hilly views from some points.

Toilet and shower facilities were spacious and clean.

Overall a pretty good experience. One drawback was that there seemed to be a lot of rocks about 10cm beneath the ground where we were trying to pitch our tent - we did eventually get all the tent pegs in though! That wasn't a big negative though, if you put pegs in at an angle, and/or bang them with a lump of firewood or a stone, they will go in.

We'd come back again if we were visiting the Lake District again.

 Lovely campsite, personally thought there were to many tents for the facilities, first night was spoilt by a very loud, rude and ignorant party who turned up at 11 pm and partied through till 0530, second night I wore earplugs and did not hear them, but believe the queue to get them evicted was a mile long ! 3rd day/night was peaceful. Annette is lovely and works extremely hard to keep the place clean and tidy, Dan could not apologise enough about the noise. I would return again as its in a beautiful setting, and central for the lakes, just maybe not on a Bank holiday weekend :)

 Just returned from great weekend at Moss Howe campsite. Peaceful and beautiful location with lovely views from the sheltered campsite. The toilet/shower facilities are immaculate and there is a small shop for essentials. Had a campfire with wood from the shop and fire pit kindly provided by Annette. Walked from the site along quiet lanes and footpaths to Witherslack, over the Scar and down the Derby Arms a cracking pub with fantastic real ale and cheesy chips for the kids. Spent the night gazing at a superb clear sky at the stars.

The bell tents looked very inviting, may be treat ourselves next time. Cracking site if you want peace, quiet and first class facilities at great value for money. We hope to be back before the summer is over.

 I visited this campsite with my partner and dog in September 2014, and what can I say about this campsite, it's a superb campsite just waiting to be found.

The lady who greeted us (Annette) is very polite and welcoming, we got lost on our way to the campsite, Annette was very helpful and offered to meet us somewhere to guide us, when we first got to the campsite, it was noticeable clean. Annette was very helpful and got us settled.

The campsite has a lovely little shop with lots of items from food and drink to toiletries.

The Campsite itself is a good size and very well maintened, the toilets and shower facilities was extremely clean and one of the best I've been to. The toilets was clean, there was always toilet roll and the showers were hot and powerful. There is even electrical plugs so you can use hair dryers and straighteners which I found very useful :). Washing up bowls and sinks are provided to wash your camping pots, there is also a dryer to dry any wet clothes.

Campfires are allowed, and we were provided with a fire pit which was lovely, firewood can be purchased from the shop.

The campsite is not far from a local pub (2 min drive away or 15 min walk) great food and a good games room for the children, we travelled into grange village which was 10 min drive, lots of shops and pubs :) found a lovely pub which shown the football which my partner was happy with, and it was also dog friendly, so the dog came in as well, as many locals had their dogs with them.

If your looking for a clean campsite with excellent shower/toilet facilities, not too far from shops/pubs but still away from the hustle and bustle, then this is the campsite for you.

This is by far one of my favourites campsites I have been to. I will definitely be going back.

 Friendly and helpful staff. Small well maintained site, new showerblock, shop, campfires allowed and recycling set up. Pub a hike for kids but very close by car, as is main road for getting to west lakes. There are no play items for the kids, but space to run around in. Sheep are noisy, but beautiful scenery. A good base from which to explore the south and west lakes.

 Quite simply, Moss Howe Farm Campsite is a gem of a campsite just waiting to be discovered. Our family of 5 and 1 dog went for a long weekend in June and were warmly greeted by owner and her daughter, who made us all feel very welcome throughout our stay and were more than happy to help us with any questions that we had. The campsite sits behind the impressive farm house (with small shop for essentials like firewood and Moss Howe Farm's own range of jams!) and has some beautiful views over neighbouring farmland towards the surrounding fells. The land is extremely well maintained and makes for good, flat camping ground. We took our own tent, however bell tents are available for hire and looked fantastic. The shower block and toilet facilities were pristine and there were electric charging points and a tumble dryer available within them. Dogs are welcomed but must be kept on a leash as there are two friendly cats on site, which our children loved playing with. We found the campsite to be ideal in terms of location as it was easily accessible from the south and gave us easy access to the rest of the Lake District. We couldn't believe how lucky we were to be sharing this campsite with ONLY two other families. It was bliss and we feel guilty about wanting to keep this place to ourselves, but this campsite deserves to be discovered hence the posting of this review. Do not miss out.
