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.

We had a great weekend staying in the Pods at Mains Farm. It's a great location, easy to get to, great walks nearby and not far from Ullswater. The owner's were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were great. The Pods were great, clean, lights, heating and a storage box. We will definitely be back!

A fantastic local area within close proximity of the Lake District, great facilities including hot/water pressure in the showers and washing up facilities, lovely spacious flat pitch with great views over the valley, extremely friendly and very helpful owners who had provided great advice on local attractions as well as recommended activities. Lovely people who took a genuine interest to ensure that we had a pleasant stay. The honesty shop is a nice touch and its nice to have the river so close.

Brilliant campsite

Beaumont, Katie - 22/04/2022

I have stayed here on two occasions now and I absolutely love it. The thing I love about it the most is the staff, they are so friendly and helpful and just overall lovely welcoming people. Secondly, there is tons of space for the kids to play games etc and also the park is perfect for them. I have three children and I know that they are all safe playing on the park alone (where I can see them still). They have clean showers and toilets and also have other facilities that I didn’t know about until I came the second time such as a toaster, microwave, kettle and a fridge freezer that anybody is welcome to use. I am already planning my next trip here again, I feel like I don’t need to find anywhere else to stay when Mains Farm has it all.

The ideal way to spend a outdoor holiday.

Fenby, David - 22/04/2022

I find this site to be the perfect place to spend an outdoor holiday, together with my dog. The owners & staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help with any problems or queries that you may have. The location is ideal for outdoor pursuits and is excellent for local walks, and the local pubs provide some excellent fare. The location is also very handy for trips into the Lake District. I have no hesitation in recommending this site to anyone.

Great site

We stayed in one of the camping pods on Cart Horse field over Easter weekend, with lovely views over a field of sheep & their lambs. The site was busy but our field was quiet as it only has the 6 pods in it. Facilities very good & cleaned regularly. Great cakes from the honesty shop. Lovely walks from site. Will definitely recommend to others.

First time at mains farm

Majer, Paul - Electric - 22/04/2022

We stayed here over Easter weekend in well field and the site it’s self is beautiful, clean and well looked after. There is everything u could possibly want on site and always clean and honesty shop is a lovely idea and plenty of things to choose from. The owners Julie and Robert were lovely and very helpful (especially when our disposable bbq’s didn’t work) also said about walk ways which were good for the kids. The kids loved the site with the play park and the freedom with no cars allowed on pitch’s and they also loved looking at the lambs on a morning. We all loved it that much we have booked to go back in august.
