We have 10 camping pods where you can enjoy spectacular views of the Eden Valley. Each pods includes electric, lighting, electric heater for cool winter nights, a porch for sitting out and a picnic bench for dining.

Outstanding location and views. Riverside walks and woodland picnic area on the farm. Within easy walking distance of Kirkoswald, past winner on many occasions of Cumbria’s best kept village award, offering a village shop, post office and two Inns.

Our privately owned stretch of single bank salmon and trout fishing is only a 200 metre stroll from the site. If you need help with fishing, haven't any tackle, or you just want to have a go, Trevor is on hand to help. Trevor is very experienced in all forms of fishing, fishing tackle is available, all you have to do is enjoy the river, the sport and his company.

Tipi tents

Why not try something different!

Our Tipi Tents are available from May until the end of September and have uninterrupted views of the river Eden. The Tipis are made from cotton and have a raised decking area.

We ask that no cooking is done inside the Tipi and any barbecues must be on the Grass, not on the decking.

You need to bring everything to camp but not the tent. There is an electric supply to the Tipi, but no heating or lighting is provided.

Check in from 3pm, and we ask you to leave your Tipi by 11am on the day of departure.

We would appreciate the traditional way of removing shoes when entering the Tipi, and please leave it as you found it.

Sorry no dogs or candles are allowed inside our Tipis.

Fantastic stay at mains farm camping pods

Harrison, Jon - 22/09/2022

Wonderful clean site with hot showers clean toilets. Lovely greeting on arrival,made very welcome. The camping pod was very roomy and well insulated. I didn't need the heater that was provided. I've provided positive comments and photos on my Instagram hazz72 for all my archery friends and followers,so hopefully you'll get more custom from the field archery community when they're attending North lakes or Lakeland shoots. Many thanks jon

Brilliant site. No more needs to be said

Crawford, Malcolm - 02/09/2022

There is nothing to dislike about this site. Facilities - Excellent, clean and ideal.Space - Loads! Location - Perfect.Hosts - Amazing.Honestly i can not say ive been to a better site. The pubs are a half hour walk into the village. You can walk, drive or the site hosts can organise a lift for you.The views and things to do within half hour of the site are brilliant. Go a bit further afield and you have the entire lake district at your feet.There is a lovely little river you can fish, or just go for a paddle. The pictures i have added have no filters and are not doctored. Taken from an iPhone. I can’t wait to book for next year!

Our 2nd stay, and definitely won’t be our last ❤️

Higo, Anouska - 02/09/2022

Another fantastic stay at Mains Farm! Our daughters were excited to return, and they had an even better stay this second time. The best part for us is that this is such a safe site for young children, and we felt so comfortable letting them have some freedom around the site (which is hard to do nowadays). There were lots of young families staying, and all the children played brilliantly together. We were there over August BH and facilities were still easily accessible whenever we needed them. Robert and Julie do an amazing job, and are always on hand to help. Another massive positive is the space you have- they could easily fit more tents on the fields, but they consider their customers and do not cram you in. Cannot recommend this campsite highly enough. Thank you for helping us make special memories with our girls.
