Coniston – Moss Side Farm

The coast, a castle, Coniston and the stunning views make up just a handful of things that make the Moss Side Farm site totally unique. Located on working Lakeland hill farm having traditional Herdwick sheep and lambs, Hereford cattle, ponies, pigs, ducks and hens, this wonderfully quiet and secluded spot is a slice of Lake District paradise.

Just a hop, skip and a jump from Coniston Water in one direction and the seaside in the other, Moss Side Farm is in the ideal location for exploring the very best of all the Lake District has to offer. Seven of our yurts are situated in their own exclusive field. five of which come with their very own private Scandinavian wood fired hot tubs. Blackberry yurt is situated high up on the top of the hill overlooking the campsite with simply magical views over the Duddon Estuary and beyond, a real treat for those looking for that out of the way spot. Please see the site map for locations.

Situated at the foot of the simply stunning and wild Duddon Valley and commanding spectacular views stretching for miles over Kirkby Pool and the Duddon estuary, Moss Side Farm boasts a quiet, off the beaten track glamping holiday in one of the Lake District’s most beautiful and wild places. While you certainly feel a million miles away from anywhere it’s just a half an hours walk away along the old railway line to the beautiful village of Broughton with it’s award winning bakery and butchers as well as a selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants. Thirty minutes walk the other way over the hill is the Blacksmiths Arms. A traditional Lakeland pub with exceptional food (booking is essential).

Scandinavian wood fired hot tub available to book with Elder, Sorrel, Bluebell, Meadowsweet, Cloudberry and Dewberry Yurts only.

Book exclusive use of the Scandinavian wood fired hot tub with your stay. At 1.8m diameter, it is large enough for six persons, ideal for friends, families or just great for that extra treat on a romantic break away. Please click HERE for more information on our hot tubs.

Imagine yourself soaking away the hustle and bustle of everyday life watching the steam gently swirling and rising up into the night air, a better way to spend an evening I doubt you will find.

Moss Side Farm is just 15 minutes away from the picturesque traditional Lakeland village of Coniston, one of the Lake District’s most spectacular lakes and beautiful villages. Ideal for wild swimming, a cycle around the Lake, a picnic on its beautiful east side, a boat trip up the entire length of the lake or climbing the iconic “Old Man” of Coniston, there’s something here for everyone. Just 15 minutes the other way, why not enjoy an ice cream on the beach at Haverigg or Silecroft or take a dip if you are feeling brave?

Further afield, it’s our closest site to the start point of the walk up England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike or a day trip to Muncaster Castle to take in their ‘Raptor Experience’.

For those seeking absolute solitude, the walk up Black Coombe is magnificent.
