Blakebeck Farm Camping Barn

Description of the barn

The camping barn is situated at Blakebeck a small 18th century farm, in one of the traditional stone buildings, close to the main farm house, which is nestled at the foot of Souther Fell. There is a public footpath taking you from the barn directly to Blencathra and neighbouring fells. The village of Mungrisdale is 2 miles, where The Mill Inn pub serves bar meals.  Blakebeck is on the C2C Cycle Route halfway between Keswick and Penrith. The Cumbrian Way passes close by and there are many Lake District Peaks including Blencathra, Helvellyn and Skiddaw within easy reach. The barn is ideal as an overnight stay for cyclists and weekend breaks for walkers and families, but not suitable for partying groups with its close proximity to holiday cottages and the main farm house.
