Outstanding stay at The Roundhouse, Baystone Bank Farm

Heavy Horse Riding

BHS Approved Centre – Heavy Horse Riding Experiences – Shire, Clydesdale, Suffolk Punch and Ardennes Horses – Horse Riding Holidays – ‘Hands On’ Experience Days – Farm, Fell, Beach and Trail Riding – Short ‘Taster’ Rides – Short Children’s Rides in the Holidays

We are located in the Whicham Valley, in the South West corner of the Lake District National Park. This gorgeous little valley is an undiscovered gem, with great views across to Coniston, Duddon, and into the heart of the Lake District, but without the crowding of the Central Lakes it remains a wonderful, quiet area to ride.


Frequently asked Questions

Is there a reception?

Not in a formal sense, the campsite warden has an onsite caravan which will always be manned, so if you have any questions don’t hesitate to give it a knock! We have contactless check in but if you feel disorientated please call us or find the warden. We are here for you! Maps will be displayed around the site to assist you!

What’s Included and what do I need to bring?

Tent Pitches: these are a reasonable, minimum 70 square metre space for you and your tent. Some pitches allow parking, some do not. If the weather has been utterly foul we might request that you park in the car park to avoid you getting stuck or damaging the pitch. Car/small campervan space included in pitches S1-10 and on Electric pitches E1-8 where you have access to an electric hook up. If it is REALLY wet weather we will re-site you if a camper van, or ask you to park in the car park to avoid you getting stuck or damaging the pitch.. No car spaces in the car free zone (S11-18 and CFS 19-23) and outlying fields. Parking is on spaces nearby or the car park, a couple of mins walk maximum Hard standing for Campervans, Motorhomes, caravans – a two space hard standing area with grass for relaxing on next to it. Check the map and individual pitch for full details before booking. You will need to bring everything! If you forget something please, do ask as if we can help, we will! The shop stocks sleeping bags, karrimats, tent pegs and a variety of camping items which might be of help!

What facilities are onsite?

Our main site has a shower block with toilets and dish washing facilities, as well as water points located in various places around the main site. Our Bramless and Little Mead fields have their own toilet block and water point!

Can I stay for just one or two nights?

ALL tent pitches are for minimum two nights over a weekend, the bell tents are different, see below

Is the site wheelchair accessible?

Unfortunately, this is not possible on all pitches due to the nature of both the site and camping in the Lake District on a fell farm generally, but we would always endeavour to accommodate any disability, as many of the pitches would easily be wheelchair accessible.. The best course of action is to give us a quick call before booking to confirm the accessibility of your preferred site.

Will there be Wi-Fi coverage onsite?

Sorry, no, we do not offer Wi-Fi. We are happy that this is a site where you and your family can have some time interacting with each other! There is quite good mobile reception though.

Can we bring a ‘pup’ or small tent?

Our pitches are for one tent only, so we can't allow a pup or small tent. In certain circumstances by pre arrangement we might allow it, please call us to discuss.

I’m a member of the Camping and Caravanning Club, do I get a discount?

No sorry we are a small independent site.

What time can I arrive and what time must I leave?

Check in times are between 3-7pm, why not arrive early and get a feel for the local area? Check out is between 7am and 10am, but if you need later checkout do let us know in advance.

What happens if something breaks?

IF you accidently break or damage anything, please don’t let it spoil your stay. Just let one of our on-site team know so they can provide a replacement. In some circumstances there may be a charge for damage.

DOGS – if considering bringing your dogs you MUST read our Dog Policy.

Well behaved dogs are welcome at the Campsite, but must be kept on a lead at all times. Dogs should be walked well away from the camping area and any mess cleared up immediately. Please note - pets are not permitted to stay in pup tents or “in the car” No other pets are permitted. In emergencies please contact us to discuss your situation.

What facilities are onsite?

Our campsite has a toilet and shower block and water points along with dishwashing facilities, in the top fields there is a small toilet block.

Can I stay for just one or two nights?

… the bell tents are different, see our booking system

What if I get stuck in the mud?

As every campers worst nightmare, we try to avoid this as much as we can by only allowing vehicle access where we deem it sensible to do so. Therefore, if found somewhere you shouldn’t be and you are stuck, there will be a charge of £50. This may seem steep, however when you take into account the use of farm vehicles, the staff wages and the landscaping of damaged areas of the site.

What is the Refund Policy?

With the unpredictability of the last year, it puts us in a difficult position where we cannot be handing out refunds to everyone who asks. Cancellations made more than four weeks prior to arrival qualify for refunds or rescheduling. Cancellations less than four weeks prior to arrival are subject to no refund. Large group cancellations (4+ pitches) will also not receive any refund. All refunds are made via Stripe so Stripe fees will apply.
