The Campsite Layout

The Campsite has 2 main fields, which are both approximately 2 acres in size. 

The larger Open Field has been divided by a fence and hedge, with tents to the top and caravans below.

The Meadow Field

Two tents on the Meadow Field - Lanefoot Farm Campsite - resizedThe Meadow Field has some mature tree screening, and is divided by the meadow flowers and grasses which grow there.

It is a more secluded camping area, with views towards Skiddaw, Barrow and the Helvellyn range.



The Open Field

View towards Seat Howe and Barf - Lanefoot Farm Campsite - resizedThe Open Field has views towards Catbells, Skiddaw and Lord’s Seat. There is a fence across it to divide the caravan pitches from the grass pitches for tents.  We have planted a native species mixed hedgerow along this fence. The ‘new’ field at the top of the Open Field is a good size, and is perfect for camping. This camping field has been very well recieved, and the hedgerow is now quite established.
