St Johns in the Vale Camping Barn, Low Bridge End Farm, St John’s-in-the-Vale, Keswick, CA12 4TS
St John’s-in-the-Vale Camping Barn is adapted from an 18th century stable and hayloft, in an idyllic setting. Overlooking St John’s Beck, the peaceful hill farm has stunning views to Blencathra, Helvellyn and Castle Rock.
The Barn has a sleeping area upstairs (mattress provided) with a sitting and dining area below. Separate toilet, shower and cooking area (bring your own stove, cooking and eating equipment) are within the building. A wood-burning stove provides a focal point and warmth!
There is a BBQ and seating area outside and, as there is no light pollution, the star-filled night skies are magical. Northern Lights have been seen too! Low Bridge End Farm has a tea garden – all home baking.

We’ve finally re opened the Tea Garden at Low Bridge End Farm in St Johns in the Vale, so things are nearing normality, just a load of fencing and walling to do now and lambing will be upon us before we blink. We have loads of space in St Johns in the Vale Camping Barn in January but weekends are filling for February . The weather is stunning and it’s like spring outside but not for long! We are due a hard frost tonight!! Its good to know that folk can get a hot drink and a home made cake in the Tea Garden once more.
