This really is the 'perle rare' as we say in French. I even have a slight tug telling me to keep this place secret, but that would be selfish! So those out there who are looking for a small piece of paradise in Cumbria come and discover. Next to the river Eden, rich in wildife you have a choice of...

As I have never been camping or Glamping before I didn't really know what to expect, the place is absolutely beautiful and peaceful! We arrived at the farm and Steve showed us to where we park the car and then our 'yurt' which was so cute and spacious! He also showed us the showers and toilets. Our friends had the...

I booked one of the gypsy caravans as a surprise for my boyfriend's birthday. We were in caravan Ruby and she was so cute! We were right next to the river, everything was pretty much perfect. Ruby is quite small but contained a double bed, stove heater and some storage space. It was ideal for 2 nights. The outdoor kitchen...

Having stayed in Evelyn, the gypsy caravan, in year 1; the vintage caravan (now a hen house post floods) in year 2; this year we did a week in the Wigloo. Lovely. We, once again, pretty much spent a week sitting in a field. There are, of course, lots of things to do in Cumbria - we just like sitting...

We were looking for a very last minute glamping getaway to suit my partner and I, plus our 4 month baby and dog. Stephen suggested we try the Wigloo and what a treat it was! Spacious, with everything you need for a comfortable trip away from home! Stephen, the owner, was excellent - great communication during the booking process and...

We spent four nights here, and it was the perfect place to explore the Lake District and surrounding areas. The gypsy caravan was charming and quaint. It was very comfortable to sleep in and the kitchen area was practical - we were able to be independent and cook our own meals. The area was rather remote, perfect if you want...

Our first visit was last year & loved it so much we wanted to come back. Returned for a long weekend this July for hubbys birthday with our 2 year old son who has some developmental difficulties. Steve picked us up from, and dropped us back to the train station, which was a huge help. Stayed in a yurt this...

Friendly , welcoming host who explained everything on arrival and was always about checking everything was ok. We enjoyed 2 nights in a lovely comfortable and spacious Yurt . Seperate kitchen and dining shelter well equipped. The site was quiet and peaceful by the side of the river watching geese and ducks landing in the evening was entertainment in itself....

Stayed for two nights in the Yurt I have to say it is one of the most calm and idyllic p Aces I have ever stayed. Wonderful accomodation. A great campsite that is very small next to the river Eden. The owners do everything to make you feel welcome a must for anyone who needs to recharge.

What can i say, the setting of the gypsy caravans and yhurt is amazing, relaxing and extremely well kept. We stayed in the yhurt for two nights for our anniversary, which was gorgeous, spacious, clean and had a lovely array of furniture and soft furnishing which enhanced the ambiance. When it rained (fortunately not too long) we sat on the...
