“Great Stay”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at Burns Farm Campsite. We had a large tent pitch with electric hook up, it had plenty of room and was very level. I am disabled and I was given a key to a disabled bathroom which has a lot more room and it was perfect for me. Overall a great stay and would highly recommend.

we have been here loads of times and this time was no exception , lovely friendly greeting by linda and her family , clean and tidy facilities , lots of hot water in the showers , this camp site is perfectly placed for walkers and family trips , not to far from Keswick but far enough to offer a calm and relaxing time away , we love it here and will be returning as soon as we can , thanks to linda and family for a lovely time and we will see you all again soon xx

stayed here during the summer, can't fault the campsite and the helpful owner. the shower/toilet facilities are fine, I never had to queue but I did go really early before most people were up! pitch was big enough for our 6 man tent and then some. took our dogs with us, the area is great for walks eventhough the weather was rubbish!!

This is the 2nd time in 3 months we have stayed here.The 2nd time was the best as we were the only ones camping and had the pick of the hook ups. We camped in the field facing main road but had to move as it was really really windy so we stopped outside the shower block which was sheltered. The only downside was the WiFi was down . Yet again thanks Linda :) will be sure to see you in 2014

This is the second time we have stayed at Burns Farm Campsite, and yet again a brilliant stay had by us both.
We pitched our tent up on 11th October in the morning and were charged £16 a night with electric. The ground was flat and nice to put our tent onto.
There was a mix of both caravans and tents, and the pitches are spaced out nicley so you dont get disturbed - Which was lovely. From what i can gather there are 3 different tents, a main one with electric and 2 more that are non-eletric pitches.
The toilet and shower blocks are clean, the showers are free - which is always a bonus. I did't have a day that I had a cold shower, always nice and warm. There are plugs in the shower blocks for ladies to dry your hair, straighten, charge your phone etc - this is if you dont have an eletric hook up. We did have a hook up and it was very good, we were able to have at least 2 things plugged in at once.
It is in great location, breathtaking views and plenty of walks that start right from the capsite. Keswick town is about an hours walk - or 5-10 minutes away in the car, which is ideal.
The staf here are lovely and friendly and will help you out with anything the best they can! :)
We will deffo be returning here in the near future.

Room Tip: On the main field, pitch (if you can) towards the top end, a better view from the trees and other ca...

We recently enjoyed an 8 night "Glamping" holiday at this great camp site, and will certainly be returning for more. It was refreshing to have all of the electric washing and shower facilities included in the very reasonable price without having to carry pockets of change for electricity meters. The views of the local hills were stunning, especially Blencathra. Keswick is no more than a few minutes away, and there are ample local pubs and restaurants nearby to provide multiple options for eating and drinking out. We took the opportunity of using an electrical hook up, which provided enough power for most of our needs. The tent pitch was absolutely level, and our fellow campers were mostly well behaved (which is a rarity nowadays). My only gripe would be that the on-site wifi was a little low on power and /or speed, and was subject to occasional buffering.
