Amazing tranquil Lake District locationHigh Wallabarrow Camping Barn is a 17th century Lakeland farmhouse restored sympathetically to provide a well equipped camping barn for walkers, climbers, mountain bikers and those who enjoy tranquility and wildlife. Set in the Duddon Valley, an unspoilt corner of the Lake District National Park, High Wallabarrow is a traditional hill farm owned by the National Trust and keeps Herdwick sheep and Galloway cows. The farm is at the end of a quiet no-through road with only footpaths and bridleways beyond. The barn sleeps up to 10 and additional accommodation may be available for larger groups. The ground floor has a large living area with wood-burning stove, tables, pews and well-equipped kitchen with electric cooker, fridge and hot water. You may wish to bring your own logs for the woodburner or pay £15 for a huge basket and kindling (usually enough for two evenings). The kitchen has a cooker with four rings, toaster, kettle and plenty of crockery, cutlery, pots, pans and cooking utensils. Upstairs is a large communal sleeping area with 10 mattresses on a new wooden floor. There are mattress protectors but no sheets so bring your own sleeping bags, pillows and sheet. The upstairs room has beautiful views towards Caw and Dow Crag. The toilet is just outside the Barn and a coin operated shower is available in a nearby building. Outside the barn, there is a picnic area in a newly planted orchard, ideal for outside eating. A fifteen minute countryside walk takes you to the The Newfield Inn which serves cask ales and good food (book in advance for group meals). The Blacksmith's Arms is a 15 minute drive away in Broughton Mills. Whilst we want people to enjoy their stay, the Camping Barn is not suitable for very rowdy groups as it is close to the farm family accommodation! Well-controlled dogs are welcome by prior arrangement (and subject to conditions) when the camping barn has been booked for sole-use. Please make phone enquiries between 9am and 9pm.

The lakes are still as gorgeous as ever….

For simple accommodation in the Lakes look no further than High Wallabarrow Camping Barn. A no frills stay for those just dying to get out in the midst of this stunning area again.
Just a short walk from Seathwaite this end of the Lakes has a fair share of interesting sights to see. From the peaks of The Old Man of Coniston to the (relative) lows of Great Worm Crag. Further afield the beautiful Stanley Ghyll Waterfall can be seen in all it’s glory. Which as it so happens is en route to the main attraction for hill climbers Scarfell Pike. A pub dinner at the Wasdale head after an ascent comes highly recommended as does a stay at High Wallabarrow. You won’t find better value accommodation in the Lakes that much is for sure.
Stay in a 17th century lake-land farmhouse!
