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.

We stayed in our caravan it was perfect and we’re able to relax and also take part in an agility competition that was on for the weekend. The location is right near a gorgeous river which was stunning. The owners were friendly and couldn’t have done anymore such a good place to relax and enjoy the local countryside.This was our second visit and will definitely be back again

Lovely hosts, extremely approachable and they're very lucky to live in a beautiful place 😊

Ask other residents when leaving dog's alone in accommodation to ensure that they're not left to persistently bark. This can annoy others sitting in their accommodation.

Response from the owner

02 October 2023

Thank you for pointing this out Rebecca. Absolutely - Dogs should not be left unattended in the Bunk Rooms. When we stripped the rooms out after everyone had gone there was clear indication that dogs had been on one of the beds. Next year I will print and laminate a message that Dogs must not be left unattended.

Couldn't be more helpful

Julie and Robert really were the most perfect hosts. We were not the easiest of bookings to deal with as we booked 9 months in advance and selected a particular field in which to pitch our campervan for the week. Unfortunately during the intervening period we bought a caravan which we knew would not be ideal of the pitch we had booked. When we made contact to discuss this we Julie assured us that, although not ideal, we could 'tuck the caravan' into a corner and park the campervan we tow with on an area of land just opposite. When we arrived Robert guided us to our spot and it was absolutely perfect with glorious views, uninterrupted views across the valley. The only reservation was how, considering the heavy rain fall all week, we would get our big heavy unit off the pitch. We need not have feared as Robert was immediately on hand to tow us off with his tractor. The facilities at Mains farm were excellent too with a choice of two really warm toilet/shower blocks.

The stay we wouldn’t miss

We have been coming to Mains farm for years now. We come to an agility show held at the farm. The camp site is excellent. Plenty of space and the amenities are perfect. Very clean and there is everything there that you need for your stay. A beautiful area which makes coming all the more enjoyable. Nothing is a bother and staff are really friendly. Would absolutely recommend. We will be back next year.
