Camping @ Crake Trees: Right at the centre of The Westmorland Dales National Park our new Tent Only camping site is totally rural but easily accessed from M6 and A66. An informal grass site, surrounded by meadows and wildlife. Your tent will have views The Pennine mountains, Howgill Fells and The Eden Valley.
A perfect base to explore the vast network of footpaths in the surrounding area. This area of Cumbria is also renowned for cycling, both challenging and relaxing, cyclists of all ages and ability really enjoy our quieter roads, with great pubs and cafes stops in the surrounding villages…very important. On clear nights, you will also be able to enjoy an amazing Dark Sky experience.
It’s a short walk from the camping pitches to new heated shower and toilets and stable kitchen. Or… order a ‘Crake Trees Breakfast Box’ (Cumberland sausage and Egg Baps, local Yoghurt and a flask of Tea or Coffee) for a totally relaxing start to the day.
The stable kitchen includes a wood stove, sink, microwave, fridge and freezer. This communal space is ideal for relaxing or socialising around the farmhouse table.
Glamping: Our shepherd hut is ideal for a luxurious retreat in a stunning location. The hut is completely off-grid and is lit by candles and kept warm and toasty by a wood burning stove. The hut is made from steel and wood on a cantilevered base, clad in galvanised steel with plenty of insulation, even under the floor.
Inside there is a comfy oak bed, plenty of candles and a lantern to light your path up to the facilities. You have the use of a lovely warm shower room and toilet. Facilities include a fridge, TV, plenty of local guide books and magazines, a kettle and space to dry boots and jackets. A breakfast basket is delivered to the hut each morning and includes a Cumberland bacon/sausage and egg bap or a delicious vegetarian option. Yoghurt with fruit and honey, croissants with crab apple jelly and a flask of coffee can also be ordered.
You can also relax in our wonderful wood-fired hot tub which is hidden within the gothic ruins of a 12th Century manor house. Relax with an afternoon tipple whilst savouring the view of the Lyvennet Valley and the Pennines beyond.
