Grass Pitch No under 13 yrs No family groups

UK England North West England Cumbria Ulverston Moss Side Farm Campsite

  • Sleeps 4 (max 4 adults, 2 children)
Our grass pitches are suitable for tents and VW type campervans. We are a small family-friendly site on a working farm, we have animals around the site who mainly keep to themselves, but keep an eye on your BBQ sausages around our dogs!

The Owner Says

We are a working farm so we do have animals around the place, such as cows, sheep, horses, ducks, hens and dogs, who mainly keep to themselves. Our friendly dogs might come to say hello every once in a while so be sure to keep your BBQ sausages out of their reach!

We wish you a lovely stay, and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!  You can buy wood for your fires and firelighters if you want a campfire. If you should need anything else, the local village is only a 5-7 min drive away with a butchers and grocers.

We are a quiet site, no music or radios and we don't take children under the age of 13 years on the campsite.

Moss Side Farm Campsite has views looking down across the woodland valley, taking in Kirkby Pool which slowly meanders along the valley floor to join the Irish sea in the distance.  There is also a toilet and shower block.

There are several good footpaths leading straight from Moss Side Farm Campsite. One follows the old railway line route down the valley and leads you right to the village of Broughton-in-Furness (35 minutes), others take you to Seathwaite valley and Ulpha valley, while another takes you up and over into the next valley and down to Broughton Mills (see Food & Drink). Ask the Moss Side Farm team to point you in the right direction if you need help or seek out the information centre at Broughton in Furness. The most popular high-level hikes are to The Old Man of Coniston (10 miles away) and Whitfell (7 miles). For incredible views of the coast, drive the 15 minutes further west and climb Black Combe. It's a 15-minute drive to Coniston Water, the third biggest body of water in the Lake District and the closest to Moss Side Farm. Sail on the lake on the historic steam gondola, rent canoes and kayaks or launch sailing boats from the Coniston Boating Centre (015394 41366). If you're into history, it's 30 minutes to Muncaster Castle, 30 minutes to Holker Hall and 40 minutes to National Trust-owned Sizer Castle (015395 60951). The towns of Windermere and Ambleside are about a 20-minute drive each, as is the South Lakes Animal Park (01229 466086) at Dalton-in-Furness, a popular option for families if the children are tired of walking.

Food & Drink

It's a half-hour walk down the valley to the village of Broughton-in-Furness, where there's a petrol station, a bank, a butcher and grocers, a post office, a bakery (01229 716284), a café (01229 716388) and a trio of decent pubs. The Black Cock (01229 716529) is our pick of the bunch, particular on a sunny day when you can sit outside, while the Old Kings Head (01229 716293) is another option and the Manor Arms (01229 716286) is great for a Guinness and some olde world charm. For a country pub that's really worth the walk, there's a good half-hour jaunt over the hill from Moss Side Farm Campsite and down to the River Lickle. There, in Broughton Mills, the Blacksmiths Arms (01229 716824) has bags of character, with four small rooms, three of which have original beams, slate floors and warm log fires in winter. In summer, hanging baskets and benches under parasols make it a great place for sitting out, while cask ales and real ciders on tap and refined dishes (including an excellent pigeon salad with black pudding) lend some real class to the thoroughly casual atmosphere.

Perfect place for a little get away.

The site is perfect and is on a working farm. Waking up to the sounds of the chickens, walking out to be greeted by the doggos, and to see all the other animals around the farm is fantastic. The owners are great and are always on hand should you need anything. We stayed in one of the railway cabins called Thomas, and it was perfect. If you want to go camping especially over winter, they're great as you only need to bring your camping gear, and you've a bed, room and fire all ready to go. No leaky tents to worry about and they're lovely and warm with a good sized log burner. The yurts look incredible too! The facilities are shared, but are clean and are all in good working condition. The log burners inside top off the experience and wood is available at a fair price. The location is great and is a great base to explore the lakes. I can't say I've any negative feedback about this site, and we cannot wait to return in the near future.

Fantastic site

Great little site with lovely views

Small but beautiful

Very nice location for this small campsite, with great views from your pitch. Limited pitches (and no kids) means you can really relax. Shower blocks and toilets kept spotless, ample space to wash cookware. Nice to have local farm fowl wandering around between the tents! Would definitely rebook this site.

Not what we expected

Booked this based on many good reviews. However, was disappointed and left earlier than planned due to the facilities. These were very hot water or lighting for washing pots, open skip for waste, only 2 toilets per gender which were very public and showers I haven't seen since my old school days. Depends how basic you like to go. I'm no glamper but do want to feel safe when showering and have some privacy. Pitch itself....fantastic vista and we were blessed with glorious weather but haphazard pitching and a very stony ground. Concerned about the 2 terriers wandering around...belong to farm? Strays? Clearly dogs that live outside and need some TLC, and though friendly, scrounged a lot. Good to be able to have a camping fire. Lots of campers with dogs. Google maps gets you there easy enough, but like the rest of the area, beware the twisty narrow road leading to the site!

Quite and enjoyable

This is a rare opportunity to camp in a great location on a working farm,with the limited campers using the site you are not waiting to use the facilities,the owners make you feel welcome and nothing is to much trouble for them,being away from the husle and busel of the main town was good for us and only a short walk to one of the villages,will be booking again

Getting There

Moss Side Farm Campsite is 45 minutes from junction 36 on the M6 motorway and a 7-minute drive from the village of Broughton-in-Furness via the A590 and then A5092 (both heading west through the Lakes). You'll pass through Meathop, Lindale and Haverthwaite and Moss Side will be on your left as you approach Coniston Water, just east of Broughton-in-Furness. If you have a sat-nav, the site's postcode will bring you there correctly, which is always a rare bonus for a campsite.

If you would like to arrive by train, a lift from the station at Foxfield (3¼ miles away) to the campsite can easily be arranged if you call the campsite in advance. By bike it is a relatively flat 20 minute ride from the station, though there is a hill up to the campsite at the end.
