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. Five of our yurts are situated in their own exclusive field four of which come with theri very own private Scandinavian wood fired hot tubs. Dewberry and Blackberry yurts are situated high up with simply magical views over the Duddon Estuary, both come with their own wood fire hot tubs. Please see the site map for locations.
Situated at the foot of the simply stunning and wild Duddon Valley upon a natural plateau 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 Districts 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, 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 essential).
