Caravans, Camping & Glamping
Burns Farm is an award-winning, family-run caravan and camping site nestled in the hills of the Lake District. You’ll be surrounded by mountain views and Lakeland walks, with our working farm on your doorstep and abundant wildlife in the region.
Just three miles east of Keswick town and only one mile west of Threlkeld village, we’re a great base for exploring the surrounding mountains and peaks of Blencathra, Skiddaw, Latrigg, Scafell Pike, Scafell, and Helvellyn, to name a few. For the water sports and the paddle-board enthusiast, it is a short drive to Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite Lakes.
A beautiful, relaxed, family-run campsite oﬀering fully serviced, 16A electric pitches for caravans, motorhomes & camper vans, and grass non-electric for tents and campervans and everything in between. For more comfort, we oﬀer two options of bell-tents to stay in. The ‘Luxury’ Blencathra bell tents are for couples including private bathrooms, low energy electric lighting and charging points. The ’Cosy’ Skiddaw dog friendly and Blease dog free bell tents are suitable for families.
