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.

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.

A beautiful site & great location, Amenities Clean, Owners & staff very helpful & friendly, Only let down is no lighting so torch required when dark, an idea to solve this is sensor lights.Will defiantly return.Pictures taken from footpath by river which takes you to Lazonby, bottom of caravan site.

Fantastic site

Palmer, Amy - 30/06/2022

5

We received a very warm welcome at Mains Farm and had a lovely weekend there. The managment were incredibly helpful in recommeding walks & sharing knowledge of local amenities.The honesty shop was a lovely touch and the washing-up/shower facilities were excellent - I don't think I've ever had such a good shower on a campsite.Our teepee was clean and spacious and rhe views were fantastic, but on a return visit I would book a pod - our friends were somewhat warner in these & less bothered by the wind.A great experience on the whole, despite some bad weather.

Great place to stay

Jefkins, Steve - 29/06/2022

5

Stayed in one of the camping pods, had friends staying and camping in other fields. We extended our stay and luckily due to a cancellation we could stay in the same pod, was a busy weekend. Stayed 5 nights, The pods could do with raised sleeping benches as you need a blow up mattress or carry-mats at floor level. Noisy sheep right next to us, but the lambs were separated from the ewes whilst a couple of hundred ewes were being sheared! It is a working farm.Pubs are cycling distance away, but do great food.Toilet blocks never seemed too busy even with the amount of people camping.We will be back!
