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.

Fab stay

We stayed in the Woodside part of the campsite It was lovely and quiet my only downside would be the distance to the toilets and showers so a little block with one toilet and shower for the 6 hookup pitches would be the cherry on top, Julie and Robert are lovely friendly hosts. Will be back next year

My first time staying at Mains Farm and I cannot wait to come back! Wonderful warm welcome when I arrived and I was personally directed to my pitch. The stone buildings are beautiful, the shower block immaculate and the grounds and amenities clean and very well looked after. Excellent value for money too. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
