Grass Camping

The Perfect Location to Camp!

Escape from everyday life and relax, with the simplicity of camping, in the glorious, tranquil surroundings of the Lake District National Park. At Burns Farm there are 3 non electric camp fields to choose from. The exclusive pitches are of various sizes. One of the fields is divided by small wooden picket fences allowing for space to relax in and enjoy the breathtaking views and the other two are available for guest to choose their perfect pitch.

We are proud to have been crowned the winners of the Channel 4 TV show - The Perfect Pitch in 2021. The campsite also won acclaim for the quality and standards of its toilets – in the Loo of the Year Awards 2021 and recently won best family farming business of the year 2022.

The Mountain Ranges which loom over Burns Farm can be explored by walking from the site, there are lots of quiet and peaceful shorter trails too including the spectacular railway walk which links Keswick with the beautiful village of Threlkeld. The trail can be joined at the bottom of Burns Farm hill. A little further on from the entrance to the railway track is Threlkeld Village where you will find pubs and a cafe. You can also catch the X4/X5 bus into Keswick from the Wesco bus stop.

The tent fields are suitable for tent, trailer tents, folding campers, roof tents, motorbikes and campervans. We don’t allow heavy vehicles onto our grass campfields, eg. Auto sleepers, motorhomes or units more than 3 tonnes. If you think your vehicle is too heavy for grass, please book our High Rigg View or Low Rigg view hardstanding serviced pitches.
