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.

Perfect place to unwind

Wright, Alison - 07/06/2024

We camped with our adult children and grandchildren in 2 tents. The pitches were flat and a generous size, with a wild flower meadow infront and a field of sheep to the side. After unloading and pitching up, cars remained parked in the on-site carpark so it was ideal for our grandchildren to play safely outside the tents. The views were spectacular, and it was definitely a place to recharge our batteries, we hired a fire pit off Robert most nights and sat quietly chatting and watching the stars til the early hours. We drove to Penrith for supplies although there is an honesty shop onsite selling a variety of products. The shower block, toilets and washing up sinks are in 2 barns near the car parks. They were always clean, and the water is hot! There is also a fridge, a freezer, toasters and microwave available, ideal to keep ice blocks frozen. We loved our stay here and will definitely be returning, it’s perfect for families and young children.

Wonderful site for kids and nature lovers

Dearlove, Rachel - 06/06/2024

5

A wonderful site with relatively low density of pitches giving a sense of space and privacy. Great showers and washing up area. Lovely little kids play area in the middle of the site which was a hub of activity. A few minutes walk down to the river eden and various other walks from the site in such a peaceful setting. Easy access to Penrith for supermarkets and supplies. Would highly recommend, particularly for families. Wonderful friendly and welcoming hosts.

First family camping holidays.

Thomson, Samantha - 06/06/2024

5

We absolutely loved Mains Farm and will definitely return. The weather was glorious which plays a big part when camping but the kids loved the park, we could see and hear them and were able to relax with friends on our first full family camping trip. The tent fields were spacious, didn’t feel like we were overlooked or too crammed in together from other tents. Owners were incredibly helpful & friendly. Showers/ loos clean and well stocked with loo roll etc. Gorgeous location with a walk to the river and local pubs. Highly recommend.

We have stayed here since 2010 and find that it improves every year. This year there is a new site overlooking the valley. Facilities are very good. It's great for adults and children.Julie and Robert are great hosts.

Friendly, quirky site with good facilities

Thompson, Nicolle - 05/06/2024

4

My husband and I stayed for three nights in May. The site itself was brilliant and the owners are so incredibly friendly and helpful. The layout is quirky (in a good way) but the facilities are really good. The only downside for us was that where we were pitched (campervan) was a bit of a walk for the toilets in the middle of the night.

Stunning location

Postlethwaite, Michelle - 05/06/2024

5

Stunning location, kids had a ball and also found a rope swing by the river, great space between each plot, facilities spotless beautiful sunsets. Owners were lovely and friendly very approachable and nothing was to much Fire pits were a lovely bonus each night and delivered with a smile. All dogs kept on a lead which was nice as I'm scared of dogs. Site silent from 10/11pm Pods is what we stayed in these were great and gave me security as a single parent, nice and warm plenty of space. Even a radiator if needed. Owners recommended pubs in the local village and we enjoyed a lovely meal for my sons birthday at the fethers defo recommended. We will absolutely be back. Already in the planning process and have recommended to a number of people

Well appointed campsite in beautiful countryside

Yates, Helena - 04/06/2024

5

I would recommend Mains Farm campsite. It is set in beautiful countryside on the edge of the Lake District. We spent some time in the Lakes and some time in the Eden valley.The staff are very friendly and the amenities on the campsite are excellent. We especially liked the camp kitchens which were useful. The showers were hot and powerful and didn’t keep going off like they do at some campsites.There is a nice little shop with their own eggs etc.

Lovely family friendly campsite

Willis, Anthony - 03/06/2024

5

What a lovely family friendly campsite. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Our kids had the best time making friends and playing in the park (especially the hump hill). There is a lovely walk alongside the river and a tree swing. We paid extra for a private bathroom which was great. There is plenty of washing up space, a lovely honesty shop with sweets and cakes. I have been recommending this campsite to friends and family and we would love to go back again sometime.
