We had such a wonderful holiday! We love it at Howbeck Lodge; waking up to sunshine, countryside views, and seeing all the farm animals. The accommodation is faultless; spotless on arrival, fully stocked kitchen and family dining area, the stove was a novelty and perfect for cooking, the kids loved the bunk beds and our bed was really comfortable, nice hot shower every morning, and lots of space for playing on the grass/by the stream. The farm is an ideal location for day trips to the Wildlife park and Lowther Castle, and Hesket Newmarket is a short walk up the road with a kids park, village shop and local pub serving yummy food. Christine is a lovely host! We look forward to visiting again next summer : )
Fantastic relaxation in lovely surroundings & tents.
Fantastic weekend, the kids have had the time of their lives. A beautiful setting and great concept
Good old fashioned fun
This was my first time glamping and I didnt know what to expect but it was absolutely amazing, The family enjoyed it aswell. The farm owners were really welcoming and helpful with all our queries. It was a beautiful place for friends and family to spend time in and i would definitely do this again.
We had an amazing time! John and Christine (and family) could not have been better hosts - always willing to answer the kids questions about the animals. Christine makes amazing pizzas! The farm itself
Is so well set out and the facilities are great. It’s such a great alternative to camping, with real beds and a warm stove, but still rustic enough to feel like we’ve been in nature. Never had such hot powerful showers as well! We will definitely return.
Everything I could have hoped for…I was hoping for a fun and fantastic adventure for me and my family a holiday that we would remember and that’s what we got. The shepherds huts were superbly kitted out and the beds were extremely comfortable. Both adults and children had so much fun …the children enjoyed the freedom,being able to roam free playing football or down in the stream and the adults were happy knowing that the children were safe playing while they chatted and chilled.It was a holiday to remember.
Super friendly farm owners, beautiful settings with stunning surroundings, everything we need...we had a fantastic time.
Very relaxing holiday in a lovely spacious tent. My little boy loved being on the farm and went to see the animals every morning, the owners couldn’t of been more friendly and welcoming.
Fantastic site, with very attentive hosts. The food was excellent.
Perfect, very friendly and happy hosts. Farmer John and Christine are so lovely and welcoming. The Animals are clearly very well cared for too.
We had a great time,very relaxing for the adults and the kids enjoyed the freedom of the farm.John the farmer was very helpful and welcoming,I’d highly recommend Howbeck.
Really different and really great!
We had a fantastic time. The kids absolutely loved roaming free around the farm and seeing all the animals. The hosts were fantastic and made us feel very welcome.
Absolutely amazing, we were a party of 16 (9 adults and 7 children). We had three tents in total (2 x frills and 1 x normal).
The showers were amazing in the tents and beds comfortable. We did have a few camping stoves for quickness for tea in the morning. But we did use the log burning stoves for cooking meals (Spaghetti Bol and chicken curry). We also had bacon and freshly picked eggs from the hens for breakfast (eggs were free).
The farm and campsite were fantastic, the kids had so much fun feeding the goats and running around the field, we even got a fun trailer ride from the farmer which we all loved.
The farm itself is great, it’s a working farm and we got to see the sheep being herded, the cows being fed, the pony and the new puppies from the foxhounds. The farmer and his family were all very friendly and extremely helpful.We went for a walk through the village, past the park and down to the river (about 3/4 of a mile) difficult with a pushchair, but we managed.We all had an amazing time, we can’t recommend this place enough, we will definitely be back.On the day we left we prebooked Sunday dinner at village pub which was lovely.
great experience at Howgill Lodge farm, the place is spotless and the children truly enjoyed interacting with the animals which were in fantastic condition and kept in extremely clean enclosures.
Brilliant. Lovely to let the kids have the freedom to roam, paddle in the stream, collect eggs and wear the same clothes for four days (we did change their underwear!). It was a very chilly weekend, but we didn't mind. And at least the showers in the wash block were hot and powerful. Friendly people, beautifully maintained site and the children didn't want to leave. The children walked their first mountain too. They wanted me to book again after we left - we were just metres down the road.
Relaxing,kids loved being out doors and just provided some quality family time without modern technology
Wonderful experience from start to end!
Incredible, John, Christine and Sarah made us feel like part of the family. We got to experience true farm life (without the hard work). The tents and shower block were immaculate and the homemade food was delicious. I cannot recommend the farm more highly, beautiful, tranquil and most importantly a wonderful experience from start to finish. The children cried when we left and we will most definitely return! Thank you.

Howbeck Lodge in the Lake District was fabulous! The 6 person safari tent was spacious and comfortable, the communal showers hot and the farm itself was great for the kids with plenty to see and do. John and Christine were the most hospitable hosts I have ever come across. Make sure you visit the hen pen each day for fresh eggs and say good morning to the sheep, goats, rabbit and horse.
Great family break
Our kids loved being able to run free in the field and meet the animals on a real working farm. Watching lambs being born and collecting freshly laid eggs from the henhouse were truly memorable experiences for them. The hospitality was excellent - Christine went above and beyond whenever we needed a little help and it was very much appreciated.
Our mini ‘life in the wild’ adventure. We loved getting back to basics and leaving the crazy modern world behind. The tent was amazing inside and really cozy. Our 5 year old was so excited to see the ‘cupboard bed’. He also became best buddies with Harvey the sheep.
Great getting back to a world where kids weren't glued to technology and explored the world around them. Seeing the nearby attractions and getting up close with the animals in the farm made my children's day!
Best experience of Glamping. John and Christine were the perfect hosts. We were made to feel welcome from the very first moment. Would definitely recommend Howbeck Lodge Farm
Friendly family fun
We loved our stay at Howbeck Lodge! Great facilities in the amazing tents, beautiful area, wonderful comfy beds and lovely hot showers! Highly recommended!
Fantastic from start to finish! john and family are all so lovely and make you feel very welcome nothing is to much trouble. The canvas tents are brilliant and homely and we loved having no electricity, the kids were able to enjoy the outdoors minus the xbox’s!! And play like kids should. I would also recommend pizza night where John and his grandson cook homemade pizza in the outdoor pizza oven.
A truly amazing break and we will definitely be back. Thanks so much.
Really lovely spot and accommodation of a high standard. Loved the honesty shop, the animals on the farm (rabbits especially) and freshly-laid eggs. Could be doing with an info pack in the tent (e.g. where the nearest shop is, what to do with refuse etc). Little disappointed the pizza evening wasn't on when we were there and I did miss home comforts, but great to get away from it all. Kids had a ball!
Very relaxing and fun
Christine et John
Nous sommes la famille Howbeck et nous nous occupons de la ferme de Lake District depuis plus de 20 ans. Nous avons trois enfants : David, Joanne et Sarah. Même si Jo est mariée et a un fils, ils reviennent passer le plus de temps possible à la ferme, tout près du splendide Lac District. Nous espérons vous accueillir bientôt !
The farmer will usually fire up the pizza oven during your stay. Everyone gathers round to tell their stories of the day’s adventures and invent pizza toppings you’ll never find on the high street
The farm shop
It’s great for the basics and usually even better for local produce and low food miles. And every Feather Down farm shop operates on an honesty basis.
