New site for 2016 – Moss Howe Farm – The Lake District

If you are looking for that quiet out of the way place for your holiday this year then look no further.

New for the 2016 season is a brand new site for Long Valley Yurts. We are proud to announce we are working with Annette and the team at the Moss Howe Farm campsite just outside of the Lakeland village of Witherslack. Booking now being taken for two 18ft Yurts available from the 27th May until the end of Oct.

Located at the head of the beautiful Winster Valley it really is a stunning out of the way location with lovely views from the door of the Yurt. It makes for an ideal spot for exploring all the Lake District has to offer. If you can muster the energy to leave the comfort of your yurt and the quiet nature of the site a whole new world awaits.

There is plenty to explore in the local area right on the Yurtstep.. Here are just a few of the things the Long Valley Yurts team recommend all within a short pootle of the site;

The Derby Arms, Witherslack. Just a short walk from the site they have a dining room and a dog friendly pub area. Recommended in the Michelin Pub Guide for 2011 and winners of the ‘Pub of the Season’ award, by CAMRA, good beers and great food await. Perfect after a day out or just a relaxing lunch, a great place to be regardless of the weather.

A delightful walk up Whitbarrow Scar providing stunning panoramic views across Lakes to the north and Morcombe bay to the south. On a good day you will be able to spot Blackpool Tower from here. Walk from the site and finish for a well earned pint at the Derby Arms.

Stand Up Paddle (SUP) boarding with our partners at Windermere Canoe and Kayak. It’s the sport that’s taking the UK by storm and now it’s your turn to experience what everyone has been raving about. See the Lakes from a completely new perspective. Bike hire, canoes and sit on top kayaks also available for hire. See our ‘Things to do’ section on the website for more information and booking.

Grizedale Forest park Situated between the lakes of Coniston and Windermere, Grizedale Forest is an ideal place to go walking, with views of the lakes and mountains. Children will like the Gruffalo Trail and following one of the many sculpture trails. Also available is bike hire (routes for all ages and abilities) and access to the North face mountain bike trail and forest trails, a great family day out. Alternatively if you are looking for that adrenalin fix then go and swing in the trees with Go Ape.

Horse racing – Against the backdrop of the beautiful English Lake District, Cartmel Races rekindles the spirit of the original steeplechases. Large crowds descend on the centre of the racecourse for picnics and parties while the horses race around the outside.

Enjoy all these for less. Come and stay at Moss Howe farm for just £199. Available for selected mid-week stays during September and October.
