Tents and campervans pitch on a ﬂat, square camping ﬁeld with a picnic area by the river. There’s a basic ablutions block with a couple of showers, separate men’s and women’s toilets and a washing-up sink and drainer in a farm outbuilding, a short walk from the camping ﬁeld. The farm has a café (see Food & Drink), a children’s playground with swings and slides. Follow the nature trail to discover more of the farm and its wildlife. You can paddle and ﬁsh in the River Rawthey or picnic on its banks.
Tents, campervans, groups (but no loud music allowed), ﬁres – yes. Dogs – kept on a lead at all times.
There are lots of good spots for paddling and even (if you can brave the icy water) wild swimming in the River Rawthey around Sedbergh, with ﬂat, pebbled areas offering easy access to the water. Stonetrail Riding Centre (01539 623444), halfway between Sedbergh and Kirkby Stephen, has horse riding and pony trekking through the fells for the over-12s. They also hire out mountain bikes.
Food & Drink
The farm’s Ewe Tree Café has homemade breakfast available – using locally sourced produce. View menu here. Otherwise head into Sedbergh for the award-winning Sedbergh Café traditional tea room (01539 621389); 17th-century coaching inn, the Bull (01539 620264), which has an interesting menu and a large beer garden and play area; or stock up on Dales meats (and local cheeses) for the barbie at Steadmans Butchers (01539 620431).
